The theme this week is .....

"Have a Heart"

and we cannot wait to see what projects you make using this theme as your starting point. Now last week the DT (Group A) had an extra challenge, so it would be very unfair (don't you think?), if this week the DT (Group B), didn't also have the same challenge but with different set of "DigiWorld Downloads" to help create their projects. You will find their projects this week under the relevant DigiWorld download they have used.

Using the  Classic Hearts kit

Classic Hearts/Wedding Download Bundle

CLAIRE C: Hi there, I've made a card using paper and one of the toppers from 'Have a heart', it was a quick card to make, I just added a bit of distress ink and clear crackle paint to the heart and added some ribbon, lace and pearl trim.

SALLY: Hi there, Here is my challenge card  "Have a Heart" I made this card using the downloadable bundle from the Classic Heart Kit. This card will be sent to my neice and her fiancĂ© as they have just got engaged. I used two Spellbinders dies for the sentiment and frame.

FLISS: Hello from me too and I decided to make a pretty bag and matching card set perfect to give the happy couple on their wedding day. As I love mocha and gold, the Classic Hearts set is just right. All I did was cover a plain kraft bag with some of the gorgeous heart paper and add a central border. I then added some rather rustic braid to trim the bag. I made a matching card and added a metal heart embellishment to finish.

Using the Heart to Heart kit

 Heart to Heart Download Bundle

Asha: This is such a versatile and cute little love collection. You can make all kinds of projects for Valentines, Engagements, Weddings or anytime you want to spread a little love. I made a diorama card to send to one of my oldest friends, just to let her know that i'm thinking of her... with love. All elements are from the Heart to Heart kit and to jazz things up I used some sheer ribbon, bling and liquid pearls.

Miria I made an easel card; I used an image, paper, embellishment and sentiment from Heart to heart Downloadble , so quick and easy! I just added some half pearls.
You can use it for any occasion you want to send some love :)


Using the  Love Birds kit

Love Birds Download Bundle

KARON:  Hi everyone.  Here is my little bit of inspiration using the above kit.  I made a joy fold card.  My sentiment on the inside is from the Love and Cherish CD, which this download bundle is from.  I added a little bit of ribbon down the left side of the card and also raised up the topper on pop dots.

BEV: I love this download bundle! I used the bird digi stamp, copied, pasted & flipped it in my graphics programme, placed it in the heart digi then cut it out and coloured it in and glittered their tails. I made a central stepper card and used the complimentary papers and border to decorate adding text & faux stitching to finish it off. I think the end result is fresh & funky.

Alethea - I decided to make the bird cage from the Love Birds kit. I printed out a full a4 page of this paper then printed the template on the back!! I did change it slightly  only because I didn't want to print out another whole page for a couple of bars! I fussy cut the love birds and stuck them together. To finish off I just added a couple of heart embellishments. I had fun making this!!  

Lidia Hi! For this challenge I made this green and funny card with a polka heart the papers, border and flourish everything from the Bonbon Belles CD, adding tree buttons and some glitter on the flourish I hope you like ;)
