Ok, let's see what the Design Team have created for you this week!....

Anjie - For my DT card this week the image I have used is the Fredericka Debutante Digistamp  which is available as an instant download. She is coloured with my Graph 'It Markers. The papers are from the Girls Hoot Download Bundle which is also available as an instant download. I have distressed the edges of the papers and used a distress ink around everything, and then added some faux stitching. I have also added a few die cuts, some lace, rolled flowers and a sentiment.

 Debbi - Happy New Year All!!! With the start of the new year I thought I'd make a  calender. The calender itself is a downloaded cutting file from Silhouette which I then upload the patterned papers from the Boys Hoots download bundle into the software and then cut the pieces out and assembled. To finish of I just had the add the co-ordinating Owl.

Zoe - I love the thought of a New Year party, though I confess I'm always tucked up in bed long before midnight having had a quiet evening at home. So I decided to pretend I was hosting a party and designed a few items using the gorgeous Classic Hearts/Wedding collection to design an invite and a place card. I also used the fab Emma Canning Cute as a button image to make a bottle charm/hanging to be put on the person's favourite bottle!

Scatty Jan Happy New Year to you all - My project is a wine cover using the lovely digi  Fredericka Debutante  Coloured with Promarkers and I used white gel pen - Some gold Glamour dust on her wine glass. The label was made in serif and then cut out xx
Susan , Happy New Year to everyone . For my DT make I have used Fredericka Debutante Digistamp  ,coloured  with Graph'it markers  and the papers are from digi bundle Classic Hearts ,If you pop over to my blog I have listed all the colours and things used.

Jo- Happy New Year! For this project I designed everything on my computer using elements from Sugar Boys and added the sentiment using my design software. When I had printed it out and matted it I added some glitter in contrasting colours, because New Year to me means sparkle! As I have used digi papers and elements and have designed everything on my PC, I can also send my family and friends new year wishes by email, minus the bling ;)

Katrina - Happy New Year to you all!!  For my project this week I have used the gorgeous Colour me Happy by Emma Canning, I added the text 'Happy New Year' using my word document and a text box on the card front she has to her side.  The image was colored with copics and die cut using my big shot.  The papers are from the Christmas Joy Bundle - I printed them off a while ago and had some left over to use on this :)

Sally - So this is my Digi Choosday - Happy New Year challenge.  This is one of Emma Canning's December digi images.  I printed her out and coloured her with my NEW Graph'it marker pens I received from my daughter Katie for Christmas! They are lush!
I then cut her out added a little glitter and matted her on to some backing papers I had in my crafty stash and added a sentiment using my ticket punch from Stampin Up. There is my card. Voila!

Kevin Happy New Year to you All, this week I have made a calendar for 2014 using this gorgeous Sugar Plum digi image from Polkadoodles coloured with my Graph'it markers.
So there's the inspiration for today! 
I'm sure you'll agree that they're all superb makes again this week, love love love all the work these guys have put in!
