Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week.
The DT's twist on the challenge theme is to Use a Design Sheet from one of the collections.

 Jacki:For my card I have used design sheet 12 from the new Helga download I put the card together digitally in my MCS programme to create this really simple but pretty Retirement card using the different elements on the design sheet.

Ruth:  The Design sheets on each CD are such good value and you get sooooo much to work with! The hardest bit is trying to decide which elements to use!  I've gone for Work and Play 12 - Geek Scientist - you can buy the sheet on its own or if you want more, buy the download as you get each character with its own design sheet.  All I've added is some card candi, glitter glue and glossy accents!


Alysha ~ Hi there! This week as always is anything goes over at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog but DT have used a Design Sheet. I have used HELGA Polkadoodles new release for January, hope you love her as much as I do, hugs Aly xx



Helen - What better to combat those winter blues than a little bit of retail therapy. I've used the Dolly Daydream Girl Talk Download Collection which you can find right here, the card shape is a template from the collection and I've coloured up Dolly Daydream and attached her to the front of the card.


Lisa - I've used a designed sheet from the Winston Download Collection to create a masculine birthday card.


Karon - For my card this week I have used Design Sheet #11 from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection.  You can also get just this Design Sheet #11 on its very own if you need a quick card to make.  All I have added is an embossed backing paper, everything else is from the Design Sheet.


Pauline - For my card I have used a design sheet from the Rose Budd Collection, the papers and sentiment are also from the collection.  I have inked the edges of everything and just added some ribbon and pearls.




creativEle  - I used a design sheet from the WINNIE FRUIT PUNCH BIG BUNDLE.  I created a three-dimensional paper imagining the front & back of a shoes store SHOPAHOLIC.


Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you.

Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Ruth:  I've used the beautiful Bubbleicious Die - the initial die cut is from a paper from Belle Papillon Collection and then inlaid it with another die cut, adding half pearls to the 'bubbles'.  The oval die was used to add to the centre.  Butterfly is also from the Belle Papillon Collection.


Jacki - For my card I have used the ubber cute new release Helga and I have a limited number of PD dies (2) which I had at the launch so I had an idea of what to do. Then having Helga made that job a little easier. I used one of the papers from the Helga collection and added a coloured version (flower girl) I added a sentiment which is on the collection and then went to work on my tree.


Helen - I've got a bit bonkers with the die cuts for my inspiration project, using some older favourites and the new toadstool border also around three of the edges, just thought they made great flourishes and prettiness. I've used two of the papers from the new Bella Fleur paper pad, two of the flowers from the Bella Fleur stamp set stamped and white embossed in the Bubbleicious frame and Miss Charlotte from the Rose Budd CD.


Alysha - Hi there and a Happy New Year to all our Polkadoodlers! This week as always its anything goes here at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog but the DT have used a die cut this week.  I have used the gorgeous floral die cut Doublet Die from Polkadoodles, I've also added the stamp on the top and coloured it with Spectrum Noir Markers I've used Winnie Sprinkles Just for You Digi Image also coloured with Spectrum Noir Markers.


Pauline - I have used papers from the Bella Fleur Paper Pad along with the largest of the Elegant Nest Dies and the Flower Flourish Die to create my shabby chick card.  The sentiment stamp is from the Belle Papillon A5 large Clear Stamp Set and I created the flowers using the Daisydays Stamp Set.


Karon - I couldn't resist using the wonderful Belle Papillon Download Bundle for my card this week. I love all the different elements in this beautiful collection.  I also used the wonderful Super Sprigs Die for the leaves behind my flowers. All the papers, flowers, and other elements are from this fabulous collection.


Lisa - I have used papers from the Belle Papillon Paper Pad, Elegant Nest DiesBirdcage and Bird Doublet Dies and Belle Papillon A5 Clear Stamp Set. Along with some lace, ribbon, and Frantage embossing powder to create a Shabby Chic themed card.


Carol - I have used a pre coloured image from Octavia Frosted Winter collection and a sentiment from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime collection which I printed out and cut out with Ribbon/Gift frame die. I then layered it onto a background paper from Octavia Frosted Winter  and finished my card with a bow.


Elena - I used digi from WINNIE FRUIT PUNCH BIG BUNDLE colored with pastel. With Silhouette Studio, I used a digi file turning it into a cutting files.


Such fabulous creations.
