So to wet your creative juices, here is what the DT made using this weeks theme:-

Sally - Oh I love this new Home for Christmas CD Rom.  There is so much to chose from and all the images/characters and papers are lush!  I have done a gate fold card today, first time I have done this type of card, but I think it turned out ok.  I used one of the digi images and coloured her first with Promarkers and Graph'it markers, then picked the backing papers. Cut out the centre of the card with a Spellbinders die, I backed the front/back sides with the backing papers, dangled her on a piece of ribbon and added a holly embellishment. for the front I added a heart and two of the little houses and a sentiment.

Zoe - I really enjoyed this challenge, I've made a card that I've not created before & that is an easel base card with a fold-back card on the top! I used the fabulous Home For Christmas collection - printing off papers, decoupage and lots of gorgeous embellishments. It was easy to do once I got my head around putting the 2 card types together. I finished it off with a touch of sparkle & glossy accents.

Claire C I've used images and papers from the gorgeous Angelberry Christmas for my card. The angel was coloured with Graph'It Markers and I used lots of the precoloured images to decorate the card

Karon - Couldn't wait to make this diamond fold card and I had so much fun that I am sharing a tutorial this week, check below the challenge post to see how it's made.  I used the Home for Christmas CD - we are all in love with this latest collection.  I decided to use the decoupage sheets to make up the two little Eskimos, I added a little stardust gel pen and some white gel pen to their cheeks and I inked around all the edges of the papers, which are also from this amazing CD, as well as the sentiment squares.  So much fun, that I had to make two; I think these could also make fabulous place cards for a Christmas table.  What do you think :-)

Asha - I used the adorable Angelberry Christmas CD to make this variation on a square tri-fold card. And to step up the festivity I added sheer ribbon, liquid pearls and bling.

Alethea - I decided I wanted to try something new this week and  saw this  modified tri-shutter card so thought I'd give it a go! Everything I used on my card is from the Angelberry cd collection then I just added the heart charms, and kindyglitz everywhere.


Miria I made a door decoration just for a change. I used paper, bow and sentiments from very inspiring new CD, Home for Christmas . I die cut them all and kept together with brads. You can see it open and folded.

Hi everyone today I have made a criss cross card using the Angelberry Christmas CD. My papers are all from the CD, as is my little bingo card, the sentiment and trees inside and of course the stunning digi stamp on the front which I coloured with pencils, check out my Blog for more details!


Lidia Hi! Everyone and for this Challenge I Made a simple Card whit a Christmas Tree made whit squares and the Tea Bag Technique and a Beautiful Angelberry Pressies Digistamp so I Hope you Liked, the papers are from the Sundae of Seasons CD-Rom Collection.
