So let's get to today's inspiration... this week the team were asked to create something with a Back To School theme - let's see what they made for us!...

 JudyI used An Apple a Day Lil Miss Sugar Pops which I colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  She was fussy cut and popped with foam tape onto a die cut circle frame. Two of the papers used on the background are from Gnome Men Dad/Father Printable Paper PatternsThe star paper is from Winnie Celebrations 1 PapersThe sentiment is computer generated. I added 2 apple stickers and enamel dots from my stash.

JO LAVERTY - I love this Lil Miss Sugarpops image with her backpack so I just had to use her on this card for the school theme! 
SarahFor this challenge I used the lollipop lady and spotty paper from the Work and Play Collection 12 (the digi kit for this is AMAZING value!!). I resized them in my Silhouette Studio software and then used my Silhouette to cut them out! For the lollipop lady I used the print and cut feature to get three images, then cut and layered them to get a 3d decoupaged image. 
ENRICA - Schools here in Italy will start in a month ... there is still time to enjoy the holidays! 
This handmade notebook is my project for this week challenge, to embellish the cover I used the sweet 'Student/School Little Dude' digistamp colored with Copic. I added some die-cut pieces from my stash to complete it - Happy crafting everyone! xx 
Donna PHi Guys, for this weeks Back to School theme I’ve used the Science Teacher/Student digi stamp which I coloured using alcohol markers. For the background I used a couple of sheets from Work and Play 12 Paper Heaven 8 plus a sheet of vintage book paper, which I covered with ink splats to give it a ‘homework’ feel. All the embellishments came from Work and Play 12 Embellish Bundle.

Fab projects to help inspire you this week! Big thanks to the team!

So let's get to today's inspiration... We're bringing you some Christmas in July inspiration today - it's time for those of us who like to be organised or need to make and sell at fayres etc to get started with the big C word - eek!

RachaelHi everyone.  It's never too early to make a start on your Christmas cards and these super cute gnomes are perfect for it!  I used the digi stamp called 'put your boots on' which is perfect for wintery cards!  I coloured him using alcohol makers and layered him up with added sparkle for the festive feel.

 Merja - I wanted to make a Christmas card with non-traditional colours. I used super cute Delivering Gifts by Sledge digi stamp and coloured it with alcohol markers using pastel colour scheme.  Then I added some pink and violet background papers on the violet card base. The light violet paper is from Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 2 set. Lastly I added the sentiment from Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna bundle.

 Pam - Shop, shop, shop..... Winnie is starting her Christmas shopping early with her Frosty friend in this 'Snow Shopping' image.  I've  colored it with Copic markers with additional 'Diamond' Stickles added to the fur. The background paper is from Polkadoodles Bright & Beautiful paper pack and the pink polka-dotted trees are die cut using the Polkadoodles Layering Trees Die. Lastly the sentiment is from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Sentiment / Quote Bundle. 

Nunzia: making cards for Christmas in July makes me so happy. More this Letters mail Gnome is such a cute image that it is irresistible to color. The papers that I used to cut the banners come from Papers 3 Winnie White Christmas while the sentiment is one of the Gnome tastic sentiments.

ARIADNA Hello crafters! The challenge of this week is "Get organised for Christmas" and to start preparing our christmas cards!. I fell in love with Elvis Wesley Moose Bauble Decoration  - I colored the stamp with my favorite colour pencils and for the background I drew a christmas ornament with a wihite color pencil and also used some watercolor crayons in different red colors in a craft cardstock.  Hope you like it!
KIM SIMPSONWho doesn’t love Christmas in July?  I got a jump start on my holiday cards for this week’s challenge!   I created this fun card using the adorable Hollybobs Mistletoe digital stamp and paired it with a die-cut tag and some of the digital papers from the amazing Elvis Wesley Moose collection! 
GABYI´m so in love with this adorable digital stamp!! For this card I used Robin Gift Branch - Digital Stamp download from the Winnie White Christmas printables. This stamp is super cute and perfect for Christmas cards!! 


Stunning  projects to help inspire you to maybe get started this week! Big thanks to the team!

So let's get to today's inspiration...this week the team were asked to use some shopping inspiration and a specific colour palette - let's see what they made!...

 Judy:  Hello there! My DT project for this week's challenge is shopping themed. I used the Winnie Fruit Punch Busy Day Shopping digi, colored with Prismacolor Pencils & fussy cut. Background papers are from Springin' Around 6x6 Craft Paper Pack & Spring Surprise 6x6 Paper PackThe flowers were fussy cut from Winnie Sunshine Delights Embellishments BundleI used a sentiment from Winnie Sunshine Delights Sentiment Bundle.

JoHello Darlings, I hope you are all keeping well. These colours are not what I would normally first reach for, but what I love about these challenges is that they push me out of my comfort zone and I hope you will enjoy participating in this one. I used the adorable 'Winnie Sunshine Delight Shopping Bliss' digital stamp & tried to keep the colours more on the muted side, although added in some vibrancy for the gorgeous mermaid dress. I set the digital images upon some layers; A beautiful pearlised bronze base, followed by a golden/orange flake foil layer, a deep red heart and a pearlised blue scallop. The sentiment is taken from the 'Birthday Celebrations' stamp set embossed in white. I felt the sentiment really suited the beautiful mermaid dress! It really is WOW!
SarahI thought it would be fun to make this cute little Honeypie lady look as though she's shopping for her cacti, so I coloured her with my alcohol markers, popped her onto an ink-blended background using Pistachio & Salvaged Patina Distress Oxides (ON SALE!) from Polkadoodles, and added some shopping bags and a sentiment that I cut from the gorgeous Birthday Fun paper pack.
ENRICA - Hi everyone! This week the DT was asked to use a given color palette to create a shopping themed project. For my slimline card I used the cute 'Busy Day Shopping' printable
colored with Copic and Distress Ink for background, the sentiment comes from the Winnie Sunshine Delights Sentiment Bundle. Happy crafty weekend! 
Donna PFor this week’s challenge the DT were given the theme “shopping” and I instantly thought about Rocco shopping for his Fish and Chips while he’s at the beach! I used the Rocco Fish and Chips digi stamp and the Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles Design Sheet 3 

plus, some torn card from my stash. I really love how it turned out!! Visit my blog for a step by step.

NataliaThe theme of the challenge this week is 'shopping'. I decided to use the digistamps from Funny Old Bags. I've chosen Embarrassing Moment. Why?? Whatever age you are, it is always a time for shopping to make you feel better. Be crazy, funny or serious, you choose...
So, this is it, my art journal page with a funny image, acrylic background, and a lot of vintage stamps describing time. Have fun!
Sabina - I created my card using the Winnie Sunshine Delight Shopping Bliss' digital stamp and added her to a simple tag - I really love this colour scheme!
Stunning Summer inspirational projects to help inspire you this week! Big thanks to the team!
