Time to take a look at the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team this week...

Lou: I have used Work and Play 6 for my card this week. I have used the hoover digi and made it in to an A4 sized card background. I cut around the edges of the hoover to make my shaped card blank. All the added elements are taken from one of the design sheets found on the CD. As an added embellishment, I have cut up a "real" duster.

I decided to do another 3D project.  Etty and Winston are printed straight from the CD and have also been reversed, so either side shows them.The flowers were all printed and cut direct from the CD and then shaped and glued together. I added little birdies and dragonflies to the top and a couple of butterflies inside. All of the elements you see were from the Winston CD :) You can find more details and photos on my BLOG



Scatty Jan For my shaped card I have used the fabby Dollie Daydream collection, all the Papers, the image and sentiment are from this wonderfull collection. I have coloured with Graph'It markers - You can also buy the stunning image Pondering on her own here



Asha - I made a gift bag using papers and digi stamp from the Dolly Daydream Girl Talk Bonus Edition. The image of the Bouquet Dollie is also available for download as a digi. I coloured her with Graph'It markers, added a bow and ribbon for handles and called it a day.


Cara - I've used the Work and Play 4 cd to create my card today.  I created and cut a beach ball using the papers from the CD on my silhouette.  I printed off the Swimming Girl image and coloured her up with my Graph'it markers. (she is also available separately as a digi download here)   Finally I created "waves" with ribbons and pearls.



Cheremane - This week I've used Festive HollyBobs Cd, whats more you can get lots of the Characters as Digi Images ready to download straight away to craft with. This challenge theme is great for me as I  always tend to make square cards so its nice to do something different. The Hollybobs Angel is one of the pre-coloured images from the Cd along with the fabulous papers and bow with just a few accessories from my crafty stash and whats more you can get lots of other crafts goodies over at the Polkadoodles Website.


Anna - For today's inspiration I chose a round card again, because this type of card, in my opinion, is more interesting to design, in the sense that one can decorate it with techniques, which will not work well for square or rectangular cards. This card is constructed in layers, doily on a doily. Around, and under the last doily, I arranged a fabric flounce, which here presents itself exceptionally well. This time I wanted to do something in blue, so I decided to use papers, which I printed earlier, i.e. two blue papers from the Winston Deluxe Papercrafting CD collection, and one from Polkadoodles cd Work and Play Festive Hollybobs I also used a sign and a snowman from Picknix Collection 2...Gingerbread Twist CD , some white paper, from which I cut out a star, spruce branches, and some red glitter paper, from which I made a beautiful deer. Moreover, I decorated the card with ribbon, pom poms, glitter dots, button, sequins and my favorite tulle. If you want to see more photos, I invite you to visit my blog.



Karon - For my shaped card, I went with a hexagon shape.  I used papers and image from the Work and Play 2 CD collection.  My little gamer is coloured with pencils and layered up on pop dots for depth.  I have inked all the edges of all the layers too.  


MelanieI rarely do cards that aren't square so this was a new one for me! I used the new Winston CD for this one, which features some gorgeous material-effect labels, and I used one to form the basis of this card. I used some of the beautiful flowers from the CD and mixed them with layered paper flowers and blue and lilac gems, then added a strip of pink ruffled organza ribbon.

Fabulous creations and inspiration.
