Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team....

Tina: I´ve made a door wreath for you. For that i have printed the beautiful Winnie Winterland Paper and cut a lot of stars out of it. The stars were folded in 3D and then glued to a cardboard ring.
In the lower center I put then Mr. & Mrs. Claus, colored with Polychromos and applied some glitter. I like the whole Winnie Winterland Bundle very well. But the selection is really not easy.

Bev here with a flip flop card. I use Winnie Winterland and Ribbon/ Gift dies to decorate.

Angie J - I've made some gorgeous Name Place Tags for Dinner table using Winnie Winterland Collectiion. I've used 2 Digital Papers from the Winnie Winterland Papers Collections Paper Haven 7 and Paper Haven 3 for the Rosettes and Name Place matting. Also used the Design Sheet 13 for the Toppers.  

Michelle - I have used Festive Christmas Collection I have used the pre coloured images and tag and just added some glitter and some Chrissy lights.
  
Scatty Jan - For my card this week I have used the wonderful clear stamp set Christmas Poinsettia/Holly. I stamped the poinsettia twice so I could raise a few of the petals.

Claire C  - I've altered an old clock to make a shaker Christmas Decoration. I coloured the image with Lyra Pencils, it's called Skating Around and you can find it as a digi here or you can get the whole Winnie in Winterland Collection here. I cut the image out, layered it over one of the beautiful backing papers with 3d foamm and added some hills made with torn paper and glitter. I popped in some 'snow' and replaced the glass of the clock with acetate. To decorate the outside of the clock I used white crackle paint and made lots of flowers with foamiran and Polkadoodles cutting dies. I used Flower 1, Flower 2 and Flower Flourish.


Such fabulous creations!.....

Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week.   The DT's twist on the challenge theme is........CHRISTMAS and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

We would like to welcome another new member to the Polkadoodles Design Team.  Say hello to Norma, she has a wonderful blog and you must pop along and take a look.She has jumped straight in this week, so check out her creation below, along with the rest of the fabulous Design Team :-)

Norma.- For my first project as a DT in Polkadoodles,  I decided to make a winter card that hides a gift card, I  used  MissPretty that was released  in June and some of the trees for the kit  Winnie Winterland  I colored it with my copic markers. I think that it can be super cute for a little girl.

Ruth:  I've used one of the soon to be released Christmas stamps!  I've combined Frosty The Snowman with the Christmas Gifts stamp.  All coloured with Promarkers and added to an acetate card.  Such cute stamps and perfect for kids!

Helen - Christmas will soon be here so I'm starting on the gift bags for those pressies and you can't beat this little Owl Gift Bag. It's a template from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Collection, bet you didn't know that was there and soooo easy to make, just print , cut and stick!! You can find it right here.

Karon - I have used the fabulous new Polkadoodles Stamp sets on my card today.  The Christmas Poinsettia/Holy set and the Christmas Santa Claus set.  I am not one for colouring, so I stamped the Poinsettia out several times on green then red papers (my papers are from the wonderful Festive Christmas collection), then I fussy cut the poinsettia and layered it up with some foam tape.  Then stamped the sentiment onto the blue paper - perfect.

Carol - Today I have made a Christmas card with papers from the  Festive Christmas collection and topped it with Hollybobs Santa from the Work and Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs collection.  To make the cutting out easier, I combined Hollybobs Santa and the background paper he is on before I printed it. Then I used some nesting dies to cut each layer before assembling the card - so it was much easier than fussy cutting Hollybobs Santa, though I did fussy cut the flower.

Lisa - I have made a card today using papers and embellishments from the Festive Christmas Download.

Craftica - Today I used Winnie Winterland - Design Sheet 13  to create little messages to add to my daughter's classmates little presents for the last day in school, I'm working on everything ahead of time as she usually gets a lot of brilliant ideas the night before going on Holiday.

Shylaa - I have fallen in love with Ula's Life. I have created a Christmas card with Ula life journal stamp. Adhered the pattern paper to the card base. Added the postage die cut panel above it with foam tape. Tied a twine around it. Decorated the diecut panel with 3d stickles and sequins.The Ula image is water coloured with staedtler colour pencils and did a fussy cut and adhered to the diecut panel.

Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you.

Ruth:  I've gone for something simple - using papers from Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles - the plain papers, I've cut lots of stars and added them in an explosion!  A little bit of faux stitching with a black fine liner and the card is complete!
Jacki - Lil' Miss Sugarpops is one of the cutest collections I think. for my card I have used one of the precoloured images to make a Happy independence Day card the papers are from the Winnie special Moments collection you can find Lil' Miss Sugarpops Here and Winnie Here.

Helen - Ula's life, such a fabulous collection of lovely images I used her with some red, white and blue papers from the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastle collection to. You can find Ula here I just love her sweet little face just adorable.
Craftica - For the challenge of the week we Polkadoodles DT created very beautiful projects 
using colors Blue Red and White just in time to get into the July mood I used the Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles Design Sheet .  Just had to print cut and use to decorate my planner weekly spread.
Carol - For my inspiration this week I've used some background paper from the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection and added a pre-coloured image from the Horace and Boo collection - Scooting Around.
Karon - I have used the wonderful download collection of Daisydays.  All the elements are from this collection.  I have layered up the papers and then added some dimension to the flowers.  All the edges of all the layers have been inked.
Lisa - I have got Christmas on my mind already so I've used the Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Full Download Collection to create a Red, White and Blue Christmas Card.
Shylaa: I have created a fun layout with pre-coloured image from the Horace and Boo collection - Scooting Around. Stenciled background with distress paints and adhered all the images using foam tape. Added some 3d stickles over the flowers to glitter
