Onto the Design Teams creations!

Ruth:  I've kept it rather clean and simple this week!  I've a stack of little envelopes that I need to use up as I bought them in the January sale as they were really really cheap - 4p (although they did come with little Christmas cards that were really naff - I did only buy them for the envelopes!) for 20 or 25 in a pack.  So I indulged and bought rather a few.  So, this brings me to these little cuties - I made 3 cards from a sheet of A4 card and printed one of the images from the fab Bonbon Belles straight onto the card and embellished with half pearls, stickles, embroidery thread and a button.  Really quick and simple to make!

Shell- For my candy colours I went with the chocolate and lime section of the Bonbon Belles CD and as I love this sentiment I used a pre coloured butterfly image.  I decided to keep it as a cas card, I just added a sentiment from the same CD and  a few pearls, the corners started life as just metal silver corners and I covered them in frantage.

JAN - I decided to make a scrapbook layout this week using the fabulous 'Bonbon Belles CD'. I couldn't resist this picture and the 'Marshmallow Fluff' collection was just perfect for the job.  I used six different papers and a couple of gorgeous little bows which is just a taster - there is so much more available and five other collections to choose from as well!

Anjie - After looking through the fabby Bonbon Belles Double CD Collection for ages I finally decided on the images to use and came up with this card
I've made a little scene with 4 of the images and added some die cuts.

Lizzie - I thought I would make these bright and cheerful gift tags. I used Bonbon Belles CD for my papers and my embellies. I used my Stickles to glitter around all the edges. When it was dry I placed my sentiment from the CD on the middle then decorated with butterfly and flowers and of course gems ! Its my turn to do the tutorial this week so go check it out !!

Bev There is so much choice on Bonbon Belles it took me a while to decide what to make this week! I opted for the Apple Lagoon section and in my opinion you can't go far wrong with a butterfly! I used a ready made topper but edited it using my graphics programme. I added one of the sentiments and I was able to layer up the butterflies and glitter for extra sparkle. I just added a bit of ribbon from my crafty stash


Patty:  I made this card specially for my Mother's Birthday this past monday. All papers, butterflies, fence and sentiment are from I  BonBon Belles CD.  I just ink the edges and combine the colors and arrange the butterflies to make the look feels cute and simple.  I know that she would love it... 'cause she loves flowers.

Lou: I used the Bonbon Belles CD too to make my card and have wanted an excuse to use the adorabe cherry images for ages and this weeks theme fits in beautifully. Cheeries have been placed on to a doily and embellished with a crochet flower, button & ribbon. Sentiment ticket is also from the CD. Card finally finished with some brads for added colour. The only sad thing about my card is that I really wanted to glaze the cherries but can't find my glaze. That can only mean one thing .... I need to tidy up!
