Julie -- This is Winston, and he's celebrating!  Why?  His birthday is in January, and we're having this Winter birthday Challenge with him in mind! The Full CD collection can be found here.  The Digital Craft download can be found here.  The pre-printed image, sentiment tag, and Kraft paper are from the Winston Deluxe collection.  The Wintery blue designer paper is from the Frosted Winter Octavia Collection (digital download) or CD.




Ruth:  Perfect for an avid Blackburn Rovers fan who has just turned 10!  Papers and pre coloured digi image taken from Work and Play Vol 6.  I resized the papers to print A5 size and used my own number templates.  I printed the pre-coloured image to save time.


Caz -For my winter birthday creation i have made a shadow box card..Using the gorgeous Octavia-Winter Time...This digi is also available in the Frosted Winter-Octavia collection. Either on Cd, or if you prefer as a Download. Background is from the fab Twiggy n Toots Festive Fun.. More detail on my blog.


AnjieI've changed the colours of some of the papers and embellishments from the Octavia Frosted Winter collection in the My Craft Studio program to dark winter colours. I then coloured the fab Oddella Bow image in with my Graph'It Markers to match the papers and embellies. I used the same markers to colour a white piece of card to use as a mat behind the image. I raised the embellies onto 3D foam. Just look how real the bow looks and it's card! Then I cut a sentiment and again coloured it to match. Finally I added some glitter to the foliage die and flower embellie to make it look like frost.

Bev here with my take on a winter birthday. I started with a blue/grey colour combo and coloured the delightful Piper up (colours used are on my blog) & sat her on a fence from Octavia Frosted Winter, the backing paper and flower embellishment are from the same collection. I can't wait to see what you come up with x



Claire C I've used a cool colour palette to create this winter birthday card. I've used papers and embellies from the fabulous Octavia Frosted Winter Collection (available as a CD here or a download here) and combined them with one of the beautiful images from the Serenity Collection (you can get the full collection here or the image 'Serenity Blossom' as a digi here) The image is coloured with Lyra pencils and I've added some silver glitter for a little frosty sparkle


Lou: I decided to make a winter birthday present using a cool colour palate. I have used Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun papers and the owl bag template (which I have tweaked). A small tutorial of how I did it, is on my blog.
