Let's see what the team came up with for this challenge and you can see the winners of our last challenge at the bottom of the post : )

Anjie For my project this week I have made a gift box that will fit a few little baby onesies in. The image is New Baby by Emma Canning which is on the Digistamp Heaven CD Rom Collection, and is coloured with Graph 'It Markers. The papers are from the Boys Hoot Download Bundle. This bundle is great for quick cards as well as it contains: 10 coloured embellishments, 8 sentiments and 11 A4 patterned papers, and is an instant download. I have used a die cut banner, some ribbon bows some hearts and added some faux stitching for extra interest.

Scatty Jan For my project this week I have chosen New Baby awwwww - I have cut out some little baby shoes on my portrait using the wonderful paper from the Girls Hoot Collection - simply tied with some plain white ribbom - how cute xx

Debbi - Well, I can honestly say that 2013 has not been a very good year for me, in fact I can honestly say it has been an absolutely terrible year, but with 2014 now here I am determined to find the silver-lining in what ever I can. So with that in mind, for this weeks 'New Beginnings' project I have made a Positivity Jar. What's a Positivity Jar, I hear you ask. Pop over to my blog and I will tell you all about it.

Zoe - For me, the New Year gives me chance to wipe the slate clean and come up with new ideas & plans. So I made this sign to go in my craft room to remind me - I used the new and gorgeous Dollie Daydream collectionTwo of the sentiments created the background paper (both referring to shoes!) and then I used the stunning shoe which I printed three times so that I could decoupage it. I coloured each part using a mix of markers including Graph It's. 

Katrina - My take on 'New Beginnings' is Weddings - this week I chose to work with some of the beautiful items from the new CD ROM Dollie Daydream Girl Talk - This is a first for me as it was all designed on my computer using my studio software and the CD ROM and then just printed off - I printed the topper twice and cut it to add depth and finished by adding some flowers and butterflies.

Susan I am using this fabulous New Collection Dollie Daydream Girl Talk .This is an amazing collection by the very talented Nikky ,
I have used elements from the Collection and taken it into Craft Artist to make this invitation

Jo - For my card this week I used the Camille mum to be digistamp coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Copics, and papers taken from the new Dollie Daydream collection (which I am in love with!) I love the white with black polkadots, so simple but really effective!
Sally - Hi there.  This week's challenge is new beginnings. So I thought I would cover my notebook, I always have a new one each year for my orders, things to do and of course a little bit of doodling.
I used the new Dollie Dream CD Rom and took papers, embellishments and girls into my Craft Artist programe. There I put together this cover for my note book. I then printed off some sentiments and adhered them to the front. There, it was so quick and easy.

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!
