Let's see what the Design Team have made for us this week!...
 It´s me, Tina - I have created a small set for the New Year's Eve party. It includes a party hat, a cracker, some photo accessories and straws. I used Winnie with the clock out from the big bundle Winnie Wonderland and colored her with Polychromos. The digital paper comes from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles - Heaven 7.



Scatty Jan For my New Year project I made a tag using the lovely image January ~ Knowledge is Everything. The sentiment I used is cut down from one from Winnie Winterland collection The flower is a die cut using Flowers 2 . I coloured using Polychromo Pencils and Distress Oxides for the background, flowers and cloud xx

Angie J - I have used Something to Say - January. This time I have made a Gift Tag to pop around the neck of a wine bottle. Coloured with copic markers. The stamped sign says "Happy Alcoholidays". A very simple and quick one layer Gift Tag!


Michelle I have used Winnie Fruit Punch Collection to make this Wine glass card I enlarged one of the embellishment to make the card and then I used a Digital image from the kit and coloured it up with copics





Ania - I used the Marigold digi stamp from the Darling Buds collection. The image I colored with alcohol markers and fussy-cut the image that I placed on the cosmos/night sky background  (done with alcohol inks on yupo paper).



Anjie -  I used the Frosted Winter collection to make this. I printed the papers onto card so I could distress the edges and mount them onto 3D foam. The purple card at the back is a shimmery purple which is perfect for this collection, although it doesn't show up in photos. I them fussy cut all the letters and numbers and mounted them on 3D foam as well. I then added a flower and some gems to finish it off.


Sharon  This week's inspiration is New Year/Celebrations.  For this challenge I decided to make some dividers for my diary.  I used the Wonderland  rubber stamps from Polkadoodles and the background paper was from the Winnie Wonderland Paper Heaven 4 - Printable Digital download set also from Polkadoodles.  The die cuts are Ribbon/Gift frames & Corners - Craft cutting die


Sabrina For this new challenge I decided to create a shadow box using the beautiful Winnie Winterland - North Pole diges included in my Winnie Winterland - Big Kahuna digital craft download Bundle. Inside the shadow I inserted some warm-colored sequins. The embellishments are also part of the Winnie Winterland - Big Kahuna digital craft download Bundle. For the coloring I used the Tombow Dual Brush


Stephanie here! It's the time of year for celebrations and it's always Tea Time in Wonderland! Winnie in Wonderland is the bundle used for this collaged mixed media canvas. I painted digistamp and collaged a few pieces from the design sheets. All the details can be found on my blog.

Bev here, I fancied trying to make an elegant, classy, black & white New Year card this week. Less is more I think here, I used a topper from Octavia Frosted Winter and glittered it then adhered it to a pearlised white mat & added that to the very ornate Ribbon/Gift Frame. I then turned a black A6 on it's side (landscape) mat and layered some backing paper from the same collection and then added the topper. To finish it off I also added a few gem stones. A really CAS design.

Merlina here with a card featuring Winnie-white-christmas-big-kahuna, she is so cute, isn't she?

As always, Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you this week...

Let's see what the Design Team have made for us this week!...
Jacki-   This week I have decided to make a Christmas canvas. It's a really easy one to make just to show you don't need a lot of bits to make one, I took 2 Baubles from a couple of collections (Winnie White Christmas and Twiggy and Toots) which can be found here  I added glitter and peel offs then sealed with a medium glaze,
Helen -  This week the DT are making projects that are not a card. So I decided to also go not Christmas to and make a scrapbook page. As we have a super cute new German Shepherd Puppy, Max and two kitties Maisie and Oscar who we call Oscie Boo!! what better than to team them up with the fabulous Horace and Boo collection? You can find here at the store.
Anjie - Ssssh I'm gate crashing the other team as I really wanted to join them for a week. I wonder if they'll notice. I made a box for this challenge using the Frosted Winter collection. Loads of photos on my blog for this, and also another extra make! So here is the box.
Judy - For my project this week I decided to make an altered clock. I have used several beautiful Christmas images and designer paper from the Work & Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs. The images are coloured with Copics, gell pen, Wink of Stella and glitter. The clock was painted with acrylic paint, Posca Pens and the snow was created by grading Styofoam and adding glitter.
Anna - Christmas is approaching and I thought to use the beautiful collection Winnie Winterland to make home decor. I made 3D letters with my Silhouette and then I covered them with one of the kit's cards ... there's the embarrassment of choice! I covered a plastic box with white rice paper, I put the lights and decorated with pre-painted images and the holly branches. Now it's in the beautiful view of my fireplace!

Lisa - I've used lots of flowers and leaves from Winnie White Christmas (plus a polystyrene ball) to make a sparkly Christmas bauble.
Carol - This week I decided to make a new Christmas wreath using flowers from Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun collection adorned with lots of glitter, sparkly bits and a fabulous bow.
Lisa - I have made a fold out recipe page for a Christmas Album using papers and embellishments from Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Full Download Collection.

Vannessa - I am really bad at wrapping Christmas presents (My recipients normally need a hacksaw to get through all the layers of tape on them!), so I thought I would decorate a gift bag, so all I need to do is add some tissue paper and pop the present inside. Nice and easy then! I used another of these gorgeous images from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection; this time I used Frosted Spines. How cute is this hedgehog?!
Shylaa: Today I share you a page in my art journal using printable images from Winne White Christmas collections. The back ground was done using Paper from the same bundle printed on a tissue and got my own decoupage tissue.Adhered the fussy cut images to the journal page and finished it by adding sequins....


Ruth:  I've made two cute crackers and gift boxes using papers from Winnie White Christmas and added sparkly thin tinsel plus some really cute tree baubles I bought from a very well known bargain retailer.  I made the bows with offcuts of card (so not to waste anything) and put some treats inside the boxes and crackers.

As always, Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you this week...

Let's see what the Design Team have made for us this week!...
Stephanie - This week I made a few projects. First are gift card holders created with the Winnie in Winterland Bundle and Winnie White Christmas...they are super sparkly! Second project is a corrugated steel ornament with extra glitter and Winnie in Winterland bundle. Just click on my name to visit my blog for all the details.


Tina:  Once again I felt like designing a bigger project. And so I thought to myself why not a kind of  LUDO GAME. For the whole decoration and design of the playing area I used Winnie Winterland - Big Kahuna Bundle. Only the playfigures are small mushrooms made of wood. I bought them in a decoration shop. On my blog you will find many more detail photos and descriptions.
 I love this reindeer, so it just had to be on the playing surface....
And of course lots of glitter !!! It should sparkle...


Ania:  This time I created a card using the Snowdrop digi stamp from The Darling Buds that I colored with alcohol markers and set on papers from The Festive Christmas collection. The sentiment is from the same The Darling Buds collection, though I added "on Christmas" below to fit well the mood of the card. 
Both the image and the background I sparkled with silver gel pen and glitter pen and finished with perfect pearls and glossy accents.
Scatty Jan Ohhh lots of sparkle , a great fun project so I can use all my new sparkly stash . I cut my shadow box on my portrait , It took an age to glue together but so worth the effort. I used Winnie White Christmas to decorate using pre- coloured images but dusting with fine glitter , once the were in place I decorated the edge with various lushness reindeer moss, Pine cones, cinnamon Sticks, Frosted Fir, Glittered branch spray ~ find those and lots more right here
Angie J - I have used Heart on Your Sleeve - January. I coloured with copic markers and added her to my December Planner Monthly layout. I have used two green washi tapes to give lots of sparkle to my pages.
Michelle I have used Winnie White Christmas Big Kahuna Kit to make a scrapbook page I used a Digital image and coloured it with copics and I also used the embellishments in the kit 
Anjie - I used the Winnie White Christmas USB collection to make this card, along with lots and lots of green glitter card and loose glitter. Everything is mounted on to 3D foam as well to make it pop more. I've added glitter to the snowman, the Believe, Snow, Sparkle and the Noel word art. I've also added it to the number 25 embellies. I've then added 3 sparkly green gems to finish it off as I thought that corner was bare. Loads of close up photos on my blog.
Sharon - For this weeks challenge I've used the Christmas Frosty the Snowman - Clear Stamp Set and two of the gorgeous backing papers from Winnie White Christmas BIG KAHUNA DOWNLOAD KIT - digital printables (the Baubles and Green plait papers).  The woodland background was created with my Copic markers.  I've added Stickles and gems for SPARKLE!



Amy - For my new card I used a very cute image from the Work & Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs set.  Using my copic markers I colored of the many cute images from the collection and used one of their many sentiments.  I just love all the fun papers, digi images, sentiments and more that come in this collection....


Sabrina made a card with the image pre-colored and SVG of  Winnie Winterland - Big Kahuna Digital Bundle Bundle.....

Jacki   Getting ahead with my Christmas cards here using papers from the Festive Christmas collection and Twiggy and toots which can all be found here  I coloured rudie with polychromo and prisma pancils and then added some liquid pearls to his body. I made the straws with the same papers as on card then added a die cut poinsettia
Helen -  Time for a little more Christmas and of course it has to be Winnie White Christmas and I've gone away from the whiteness and gone into the kraft..ness. I just love the colours in this collection and I've used some pre-coloured embellies, tag, word art and paper, there's just sooo much to choose from.
Ruth:  I've gone for the Winnie White Christmas collection and used one of the pre coloured images.  The colours are really soft and gentle and are also continued in the papers.  I've gone for a distressed look, added one of the sentiments which I layered onto one of the papers using Pic Monkey.
Norma Using Winnie Winterland big Kahuna collection  I made this Advent Calendar.  If you want to know a secret I love Winnie, I use a design sheet for the collection and the 25 is for the Winnie White Christmas collection.   If you want to know how to make it, I will leave you a video tutorial in my blog. Just click in my name.
Vannessa - I used the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection and my favourite stamp from it - Ice Queen Unicorn. I used one of my favourite colour combos - purple and aqua - for an icy wintery feel and the patterned papers in the collection were the perfect match too. 

Anna - For my side step card I used the beautiful Winnie Winterland collection. I printed  Frosty the snowman directly on a patterned paper and i coloured it with the Prismacolor pencil. I embellished with the various elements in the kit.
Carol - this week I used a pre-coloured image and papers from Octavia Frosted Winter collection. I printed my papers and cut out snowflakes using my Silhouette Cameo. I then printed one of the pre-coloured frames from the collection to add to my card and finished the snowflakes with some pearl embellishments...

Lisa - I've used one of the adorable penguins from Winnie White Christmas, coloured with copics.  I printed the papers, sentiment and holly onto linen card, added some enamel dots for berries and some sparkly glitter 'snow'.
Lisa - I've used a pre-coloured digi stamp, papers and sentiment from Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun Download and the Elegant Nest Dies to make a Christmas card.
Shylaa - I have used Printable digital image from Winnie White Christmas Collection. I have fussy cut teh image and wreath and mounted them onto 3D foam to make them pop. I have finished it off with glitters, sequins etc...
