Let's see what our amazing Design Team have to share,
for their wonderful inspiration this week.

Scatty Jan - I adore making tags, so this was a great challenge for me - I decided to use the lovely Work and Play Festive Hollybobs collection, as it was quite a big project I went for using the pre-coloured images. All the papers and sentiments are also from the collection.

Samantha K -  I used the stunningly gorgeous and sweet new Winston Collection for my tags. Everything you see from the tags themselves, to the sentiments, to the zip!!! Are all from the CD, it is just wow, you will fall in love with the papers alone. I truly do think its my fave collection that Nikky has brought out to date :) You can find more details over on my Blog, hugs xx 




Asha - I made a tag using images and papers from the Design Sheet in the Work & Play Festive Hollybobs CD. I also had fun making a few paper bows from the same CD. 


 Lou: I have used oodles of the fab embellies found on the NEW Winston CD to create my tag. All die cuts have been cut from card that I have printed off the CD and then either aged further (with my pan pastels), or left as is. I have turned my tag in to a card ready for a friends up coming birthday.


 Karon - Finally got chance to have a play with the new Winston Deluxe Papercrafting CD - isn't he just adorable!  I used Etty, his friend, she is precoloured and decoupaged.  Nikky has made some fabulous design sheets on this new collection and it makes for quick and easy creating.  I distressed and inked some of the edges and just layered up for my tag.  Also added one of the fabulous papers bows, that can also be found on the CD.


Cheremane - I loved making this tag as I adore doing all pink and girly. I got to use the super fabulous Digi called Piper she is from the gorgeous Pretty sweet Girls range, they really are adorable. 

Cara - Can you believe I've never made a tag??? I know unbelievable right! I had great fun using the adorable Ballerina from the Work and Play 2 Collection, she is also available to buy separately as an immediate digi download here .  I also used the papers from the CD.


Melanie - I used the Polka Doodles Work & Play 6 CD for my tag, which features a fab horse-themed section for little girls. As I printed the pre-coloured image quite small to fit the tag, I decided not to fussy-cut it but adhered it to a pink die-cut label instead. Some patterned paper strips, pink trim and brads and a felt letter finished off my tag perfectly. A cute make for that special little girl! 


Anna For my tag theme, I chose Christmas because I love making Christmas projects. Besides white die-cut accessories, I made it entirely using digital accessories and paper from Picknix Collection 2...Gingerbread Twist CD. It is made using layers, from a beautiful paper with gingerbread girls and poinsettias, divided from each otherby tulle and die cut snowflakes. The entire effect is completed by brocade ribbon, cord, a cardboard present, crystals and hawthorn berries. I also applied a sprinkling of silver and red glitter to the elements  in order to obtain a stronger clarity and contrast.


Ruth: I've made a bottle tag using an offcut of card plus one sheet of A4 paper from the Work and Play 5 Festive Hollibobs cd - I printed the design onto both sides and made 3 different sizes of flowers and then added a glass gem to the centre of some of them. Just goes to show how versitle this cd is as you don't need to use it just for Christmas! Everything else is from my stash.


WOW - amazing inspiration this week!!!
