Anyway, let's get on with the show and see what the wonderful Design Team have for your inspiration this week.
Anita   Hi it's me with a little make for one for the boys, today I thought I would work from a design sheet from the Work and play 11 collection  and a coordinating backing paper these papers are super lush.


Ruth:  I've gone way back to an earlier cd - Paper Boutique Vol 1.  I've used one of the Family Affair templates and printed off as A5 size; I've just added a faux running stitch, handwritten tag and some extra kraft stars.  Really easy and quick to make!


Bev: I decided to use one of the design sheets from Work & Play 7 and a couple of the complimentary backing papers. This week I opted for a 5x7 card and used one of my dies to give the front a different edge.


Anjie I've used one of my all time fave male collections, which is Pretty Tuff. Whenever I have a male make to do this is my go to CD, even if I don't use an image for it the papers are just perfect for males of all ages! Now talking of papers did you know some of our collections have actual physical paper pads? No, well we do and Pretty Tuff is one of those. So if you don't want to print papers you can buy the paper pad HERE. More info and details on my blog.



Katrina: I've used the pre-coloured version of the fabulous science geek from the Work and Play 12 CD and made a 'molecule' with co-ordinating buttons and cocktail sticks.


Claire C I've used Cherry Blossom Lane, one of my all time favourites from Polkadoodles to make this card, The papers are all from the CD collectio which can be found here. The main image a clear stamp called Noah, you can find him here , I've stamped him on kraft card and coloured him with pencils.

Lovely creations to inspire you all with our One For The Boys challenge!
