Now, let's take a look at what the Design Team have for you...

Scatty Jan - I have used the wonderful Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun, I have made a set of 7 cards all slightly different in one way or another. I have used all pre-coloured bits and pieces adding some glitter and glossy accents here and there. I also used a tiny piece of tinsel on each one so they really are dressing the tree.  I'm so pleased how these have turned out . They will be sent out in boxes for the Family. Lots more photo's on my blog.

Jenny - I have used one of the pages from the first edition of the Colour Therapy Club, as soon as I saw it I knew I had to buy it and make some of my Christmas cards with it.  I coloured with my Lyra pencils and sprayed with a fine mist of glitter spray, the sentiment is from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection there are more details on my blog.

Jackie - It has been a super busy week for me this week. Thankfully there are so many wonderful pre coloured images, elements and gift boxes on the Work and Play 5 Collection- Festive Hollybobs. You can buy the cd here or get the instant dowload in time for Christmas. I have used the pyramid box from it as the base of my chocolate box and have added a diecut, glitter and ink. Details are on my blog for this quick, little project.


Karon - I have used the wonderful Studio 12 Picknix 2 - Gingerbread Twist for my card today.  Made a little window to look out onto the fabulous winter scene.  Added some depth by raising the window onto foam tape and inked all the edges of all the layers.

Ria -  I have used the cute Twiggy and Toots Festive fun Collection for my card. This image is Christmas wishes. I used watercolours and stickles to colour it. White dots are molotow marker.


Mia - I have used the lovely papers from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Digital Collection for my card. Check out my blog for more details.


Aunty Sue - Now for my card I have used a fab CD/download from The Work & Play collection called Festive Hollybobs and you can find it in the store HERE. I have gone with lots of Pre Coloured Embellishments and layered them up to create this scene. Love that they are PNG so are so easy to use in Word as I did. I printed 3 of the Reindeer and layered for a 3D effect. The backing Paper is from Octavia Frosted Winter. Lots of glitter gems fluffy stuff and paint added to finish my card. Also on my blog is a picture of another Tradition called Reindeer Food using the same image.
