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

Helen - I can't get enough of these Little Monsters and thought they would make a fun Winter Birthday card as obviously a MOnster is not just for Christmas!! You can find them right here at the store. I've used 3 monster from the download collection and stacked them on top of each other before colouring them in. I then used some of the lush papers and die cut them with the new scenic landscapes die 


Ruth:  I've used Winnie Chic cutting die for the body, background hair, hairband, dress and present.  For the hair bow and shoes I used Miss Winnie cutting die and for the top layer of hair I used Winnie Ballerina cutting die - all of the dies are compatible and interchangeable with one another so endless possibilities!  I used the skin tone card from the card stock pack and the hair is card from my own stash along with glittery card and half pearls.


Anna - For this birthday card I used Horace & Boo collection.
I colored this beautiful digi with my Prismacolor and I attached it on a sheet of acetate ... in the back I created a landscape with a background present in the bundle.



Carol - I've made a birthday card featuring a wintery image and background paper from  Octavia Frosted Winter collection and added a sentiment from Winnies Sugar Sprinkles Sentiments collection. I really love how the Polkadoodles collections all work together, so you always have the perfect paper, image and sentiment for any occasion.



Lisa - I've used a gorgeous January image called Heart on Your Sleeve, coloured with copics.  The papers are from the Belle Papillon paper pad and the sentiment is a stamp from the fab Build Your Own Male Sentiments set.


Lisa - My winter birthday card using elements from Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Download Bundle. I have coloured the image with Copics, added some sparkle and finished with a little Crackle & Glossy Accents:



Shylaa - I have used image, sentiment and frame from Horace & Boo collection. The image is watercoloured using camel water colour cakes.



Vannessa - I used the Frosty Penguins image, papers and tree images from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection to make a wintery birthday card. The sentiment is from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Collection as well.

The papers are all from the Stampin' Unicorn Butterfly Dreams 6x6 paper pad and I've used a Thank You stamp that I found in my stash to finish off the cards.

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...
