Goodbye 2017 - My Crafty Year In Review

Jo's Stamping Spot - Goodbye 2017


Something I started last year was a post at the end of the year reviewing what I thought were my top picks of creations I had made for the year. I wanted to continue that this year because I love to look back and see how far I've come creatively.

After only starting my blog in April 2015 I have definitely grown and had a lot more to choose from for this years final picks. Some were easy to choose and some I am sad have been left out. Do you agree with my choices? Is there a particular one you thought I should of included? Well, here we go (in no particular order)... Click the pictures (except number 1) to be taken to that particular blog post.

Flurry of Wishes Christmas Set



I'm not usually one to do Christmas Cards but for a recent Team meeting we were challenged to do some to 'show and tell'. So I went one step further and challenged myself to stick to one stamp set and to use every stamp in that set! Something I had never done before lol. I chose to use Flurry of Wishes as it one of a few Christmas sets that is still in the current Annual Catalogue. Here is the set of cards I made, trying to use different colours but similar techniques on each...

Just Add Ink #376 - Just Add 'D"



I have a new card for you today for the latest Just Add Ink Challenge #376 - my last as a Guest Designer! Thankfully though I'm pleased to say that they have asked me, and all the other current, wonderful guest designers, to stay on the Design Team permanently! I'm so excited as they are such a friendly and talented group of ladies! Anyways, for this week's challenge we were asked to Just Add 'D' and of course there were many possibilities!

Father's Day 2017



I just wanted to pop in today to share this card that I made my gorgeous Dad. It was his birthday yesterday and it will be Father's Day in Australia this Sunday so I wanted to combine a card for him. Although it's a retired set I knew I wanted to use the Nailed It set as he is such a handy man and to this day he is my go-to guy whenever I need advice.

Today's card is kind of special, I've been asked to be a guest designer over at the wonderful challenge site Just Add Ink!

So this week it is a sketch challenge, check out the great design we had to work with!

Colour INKspiration #CI11 & CASEing the Catty #CTC132



Finally another new card! I've been a little under the weather and completely lost any interest in making anything but I'm back having a crack at a new challenge (or two)! This card started out as just for CASEing the Catty, a challenge group on Facebook, but somehow I must have had the colours in my head for the latest Colour INKspiration challenge and went with that as well!
