Let's see what the team have created for us...

Scatty Jan Ohhhhh don't you just love snowflakes , I love this shape for a card . I have used the scrummy little angel from the Work and Play festive Hollybobs collection. (sentiment is also from this collection), The little Angel is also now available as a clear stamp, you can find her here .Coloured her in with Graph'It Markers with a little dusting of glitter on her trims. The paper is from Dollie Daydream Girl talk collection xx

Samantha K - This was my first ever exploding box :)  For this make, all elements and images used were from the Work and Play Hollybobs CD, it really is a scrummy CD, you should go check it out!
As there were so many elements to this project I decided to save my colouring arm and a bit of time and use pre-coloured images from the CD, aren't they wonderful?! For more details and more piccies feel free to take a sneek at my blog xx
Asha - The Work & Play Festive Hollybobs Collection is the perfect CD for all your Christmas makes. Everything on this card, except the lace trim and bling, is from this fab CD. I coloured the image with Graph'It markers. It is also available as a clear stamp.

Cara    I made a glittery sparkly easel card fr this challenge, I used a Design sheet and two backing papers from the Festive Hollybobs CD, the image I used is also available as a clear stamp here but if you aee as impatient as me she is also available as a digi stamp here.  You can also purchase the design sheet I used as a single laser cut sheet here, there is so much choice and something to suit every crafter!

Melanie - I used the brand-new Festive Hollybobs CD again for this one, but focussed purely on the lovely printable envelope sentiments to create this card. I printed the sentiments twice, once onto kraft cardstock and again onto a thinner white card, then cut my elements and layered them up. The holly and the paper strip are also taken from the CD, then I used a doily, sequins, thick twine and a mini peg to finish off my design.

 Cheremane - I've had so much fun with the Festive Hollybobs Cd  i'm sure you will agree the Little Elf is so adorable and seeing the theme is Get Organised For Xmas I decided to make an easel note pad for all those little Xmas must do's notes. Little Elf is also available as a Digi  he has lots of Friends to so go take a Peek.

Anna - This time I decided to make a round card. I used blue paper from  Festive Hollybobs Cd, as well as paper, from which I cut out spruce branches, a star, and accessories like doily, mistletoe and gingerbread girl - everything from Picknix Collection 2...Gingerbread Twist CD  . I arranged all elements in layers with the help of foam squares. I also added my favorite - tulle and some ribbon, hawthorn berries, cardboard presents and crystals. It is awesome, how much fun one can have while making a card - I love making Christmas projects!  

Gorgeous creations this week and lots of inspiration for the festive season rapidly approaching!

Remember you have until 5th September to enter!
See you next week!
