The lovely Shamita is here with us again this week as a Guest Designer - we're loving her work! This is what she created for us...
Shamita - I made this cute little gift box using these Papers and this lovely image from the Little Dudes collection here .
Nelly Happy Friday to all! Using design papers and elements from not for girls definitely for men  to create this decanter style box, the teams challenge was to make a gift and this box fits exactly right for a chocolate orange! The tag was cut from creative paper pack using the the basic tag dies .

Judy: I have created a canvas wall hanging for my DT project this week. I used 3 images, Guitar BoyDrummer Troy and Keyboards/Piano BoyI also used Piano Themed Papers and did a little stamping with the Textures Galore Stamp Set. The title is a combination of sentiments from Word Art - Winnie Special Moments and Winnie Mermazing Quotes.
Ruth:  I've made a gift card holder using a sheet of kraft card from my stash and I've added a die cut tag using the Posydoodles Basics Tag die and the fries are from Work and Play 12 and have been coloured with Promarkers.  To finish I doodled a faux running stitch around the edge of the card and tag.
Beata I made a canvas for my husband as a gift from our kids. The Canvas includes photos from our trip to Lublin. It's a really, really big heart with gesso, splashes, mists, structural paste. I love mixed media. I used Paper Heaven 4 digi download as a paper background, see more on my blog

Don't forget to check out the Polkadoodles store this week - we have LOTS of new product releases including dies, digis and more yummy stuff don't miss them all!!

So let's see what the Design Team have made for us...
... this week they were challenged to create a FRIEND related theme with some of their favourites images and products...the twist was that they needed to combine 2 images together and create something which also has a pocket included somewhere in the project. This is a really interesting challenge and we love what everyone came up with, some great ideas here!...

Norma, This week I made a pop up card, using the fun collection called Winnie Star Fish sandcastles....

Suzi  This week I made a friendship card using Little Dudes Big Kahuna bundle, the images are Cool Dude and Just Hangin' which can be bought separately. My papers are from the Little Dudes big Kahuna bundle.
Gina My card this week is a criss cross design. I have coloured up Hooray from the Winnie Celebrations collection and the very cute Horace. They are best friends! The papers are Eden - Paper Heaven Plain Jane 3 and the sentiment is from the Serenity Fairy Wishes Sentiments Bundle....


Ann-Marie -  For my friend themed card this week I settled on a criss cross design.  I used the two images 'Maddie Shy' and 'Piper with Bunches' and coloured them with copics to compliment the beautifully vibrant papers from 'Tropical Sorbet' which I printed on to Ultimate Graphic Paper.  The butterflies, flower embellishment and even the frame inside the pocket are from the same kit.
Lisa - For my card this week I have merged Party Little Dude and Balloon Days, I've also copied/cropped the Balloon Days images to add an extra Balloon. I have coloured the image with alcohol markers and added it to a Z-Fold card decorated with papers from Work Play 10 Paper Heaven 1-10 Digital Craft Download Bundle and I've also added a large tag and a pocket on the inside.
Fleur For this weeks card I have used January - Heart on Your Sleeve & A Pocketful of Love Papers are Work & Play - Paper Heaven 7 All sentiments are from Eden Collection - Say it all....

Great ideas girls, just fabulous! We hope we inspired you to maybe make something with a pocket too!...

So let's see what the Design Team have made for us...

... this week they were challenged to create a WORK related theme with some of their favourites images and products...the twist was that they needed to include something which was either recycled or upcycled from the kitchen! 

Today we have our Guest Designer Shamita joining us too....
My card is for a scientist - I love these images theyre so cute!
The digis are from here and the papers are from Winnie Celebrations here.
Nelly  Printing The "Chef" and "Baker" from THE WORK AND PLAY CD 7  images onto fabric transfer paper ,  I up cycled some tea towels from my kitchen drawers , using a stencil I have used fabric paint to add additional colour and interest. The sentiments " Good Luck in your new job"  was printed onto safmat clear printable paper and was taken from sentiment download you can find HERE



Judy: My card for this week was created using the b/w image, New Job, papers and sentiment from Winnie Celebrations 2 Download Kit. I used Fanciful Circles Dies
 and I made the flower by upcycling mini cupcake liners.
Ruth:  I've used the male office worker and two papers from Work and Play Vol 2.  He's been coloured with Promarkers and I've added him with foam pads for depth.  This is actually a card for one of my team who is moving on at the end of the month and I used packaging from a recently devoured Easter Egg to cut out the letters!
Beata made a small canister as a gift for sweets to new job. Can left after some medicine. You can use it with magnetic shelves or just put it on a desk. She used sentiment "Amazing news" from Winnie Celebrations 1 and paper from Paper Heaven 1 as a background.


Great projects, we hope we inspired you! Great work ladies!
