Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Ruth:  I've gone with Work and Play Vol 12 and used various different elements from the design sheet plus a wooden stick and some die cut silver stars.  The Design sheets are great - print out, cut out the elements and then move them around for different combinations until you're happy with the layout!


Alysha ~ This week at Polkadoodles the DT are “Using a design sheet for our inspiration, here I have used Starfish and Sandcastles Design Sheet 11 hugs Aly xx


Helen - So excited this is the first time I've used Helga the Hippo, she's just adorable. I've used parts of two of the design sheets in the Helga Hippo collection that you can buy in pairs. Here's the ones I used http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/helga-hippo-design-sheet-13-duo-download/. They're just so versatile and Helga is a must for any project. I made a stepper card from the design sheets and added a couple of those fabulous dies from Nikky. The cherry blossom branch to make the tree and the door to make a shed, which I used a paper from the Starfish and Sandcastles collection as its such groovy wood.


Karon - My eldest Daughter is just finishing her first year at college, to be a Veterinary Technician.  I couldn't resist using the Design sheet from the Work & Play 12 collection. You can buy the whole collection HERE or as a Mini Vet/Dog Groomer/Cat Grooming Bundle, where you get the female and male vets, and lots of other goodies too :-)  This Z fold card is to wish her luck in her 2nd Semester exams - and then she will be home for the summer months :-) Yay :-)
Pauline - I have created a card using a design sheet from the adorable Twiggy & Toots Collection.  I used the decoupage image - I love my fussy cutting.  The sentiment, papers and flowers all come from the collection.  I also used the largest of the Elegant Nest Dies and the Flower Flourish Die.


Lisa - I've made a card using one of the Helga design sheets that you can download from a set of two here.


Carol - Today I have used Design Sheet 4  from Winne Sugar Sprinkles collection.



CreativEle - I used one of 28 design sheet of HELGA collection for create this EASEL CARD.

Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Tina - First I painted the stalk of a big brush first white and then I decorated with many ribbons and lace. Then I glued a few flowers and small beads on it. After then I colored the small "Cleaning Lady" with Polycolor by Lyra and placed on the brush in the scene. A little glitter and a few metal charms round off the work.


Bev here with my cute little 6 x 6 card using a combination of papers & flowers from Lemonade Fizz & the leaves from Bubbleicious Frame. I created a little patchwork background with faux stitching and then wrapped my ribbon around before adhering the shaped flowers & leaves.


AnjieI used a circle die to create and circular easel card. I used lots of elements from the Winnie in Wonderland collection on this card. This really is one of my all time favourite collections in case you hadn't noticed! I used the small frame die from the Bubbleicious Frames die set to cut out Sydney the White Rabbit. I fussy cut all the embellies and mounted them onto the card using 3D foam. I added some extra interest with the sprig die and the flowers 2 dies. Finally I used some crushed silk ribbon and a jewelled gem to finish it all off.



Scatty Jan - I decided on a box with a matching card  for my project this week.  I used a mixture from the Belle Papillon, Bella Fleur, Dies, Stamps and Papers all can be found here. I doubled up some of the butterflys and flowers for depth. Added a little lace to the box to finish.




Claire C - I've made a card using some of Nikky's beautiful stamps and dies. The papers are from the Belle Papillon Collection and the flowers are stamps from the beautiful Bella Fleur A5 Stamp set . I've die cut the flowers using the Flower Bunch Doublet Die and layered them up with 3d foam pads over the gorgeous Elegant Nest die cuts.

Michelle - For my project this week I decided to use the brand new The Darling Buds Crocus Image I just love these images can't get enough of them. Anyone that tries these image is going to wont more of them.
