Helen - Don't you just love Helga? This Hippo is just adorable and she's gone a bit dotty as she  just loves polka dots. You can find the big kahuna collection here at the store. I've teamed her up with some of those fab Polkadoodles dies to including one of the beautiful LDRS ones the Dainty Doily
Ruth:  Did you know that girly collections are not just for girly cards?!  I've used papers from Fredericka Mini CD collection and made a cute Father's Day card!  I've also added dotted liquid pearls and silver circle die cuts.
Shylaa - How cute is this Ula. Don't you hear the whispering of those lovely beauties.This stamp is from - Ula's life - Ula Don't listen.The gorgeous flowers are from the Horace & Boo Design sheet collection. Just outlined the card with hand drawn borders.Fuzzy the flowers from the design sheet and added pearl to its center.Adhered the fuzzy cut ula to the cardbase with foam tape.
Jacki - Hello for my make today I have used the beautiful Ula I love this image (inner Beauty )for my papers I have used various collections getting all the polka dots I could find lol (love them) the flowers are from the new release Lil' miss sunshine
Karon - I have used the lovely Lavender Tea Download collection for all of my card today.  All the papers are from this collection, including the flowers and the sentiment.  I love the colour palette in this collection, so calming.
Janet Craftica - Today I'm working on my planner again, this time I made a kit of dividers, using Polkadoodles design papers. I took all the polka dots papers I found on these kits #1#2 #3
which are part of the Li'l' Miss Sugarpops.  Using my electronic cutting machine program I created the dividers templates and added the papers as background color then added one of the images from the same KITS which you can find  HERE.  Finally I added a quote, printed, and cut everything getting as a result these lovely dividers for planners.
Carol - For today's make I am using Footballer from Work and Play 6. To add polka dots I used one of the background papers from the collection.I coloured my little soccer player with my copics.
Lisa - I picked some lovely polka dot papers from the Winnie in Wonderland Download Collection to make my card along with plenty of embellishments/design sheet elements from the same collection and the Winnie Wonderland digi stamp, which I printed on Kraft card and coloured with my alcohol markers. It wasn't until after I assembled the card I realised I had hidden all my polka dot papers! Some white acrylic paint to the rescue.....I added polka dots to Winnie's dress and some of the heart embellishments.
Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you.

We would like you to give a warm welcome to Shylaa and Janet, our newest members of the Polkadoodles Design Team....See their wonderful creations below and why not pop along to their fabulous blogs.


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

Shylaa: It is always fun to have a friend to play in sunshine. I have created a scenic card using Horace & Boo collection. Created the background using stencils and adhered the precoloured digis to create playful scene.


Craftica Here! Sunshine Yellows was a very fun theme for me I love to work my planner every week with a different theme or color and I decide to use A design sheet from the online Polkadoodles STORE.  It was easy to print at home great colors and a lot of fun in one sheet.
I was able to decorate the complete week spread using a single design sheet, it has lots of images and you can get may ideas out of it, So I think probably will continue using these as there are lots of themes and colors!
Jacki  - Hello PD friends this challenge really got me thinking of sunny days especially with the weather we've been having I have used Daffodil Darling bud from the Darling Buds Collection. I have coloured her with polychromo pencils, keeping the card pretty CAS to keep the focus on the gorgeous image.
Helen - It's that time of year when you start to think about a bit of decorating and what better than some lovely sunshine yellow!! If you don't get the paint all over the carpet like me. Best to stick to some wallpapering like the fabulous Painter/Decorator image from the Work and Play 11 Collection. You can find it right here in the store http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/work-play-11-download-digital-crafting-collection/....
Lisa - For today's make I have created a card using papers, dies and stamps from the Belle Papillon Papercraft Kit along with the Elegant Nest Dies....
Ruth:  I've made a cute pinwheel embellishment to sit on top of a gift box.  I've used papers from the Serenity download - making two large pinwheels and a small one, layering up and securing with a brad.
Carol - I've been so busy with a new job that I hardly have had time to get into my craft room, so today I made a quick shaped card using the pre-coloured Daffodil Darling Bud from the Darling Buds Collection - I love the sunshine yellows and it really brightens the wintery days we are having in Sydney this week.
Karon - I have used the wonderful Dollie Daydream Goes East collection for all the papers and the sentiment on my card today.  Then using the wonderful Polkadoodles Dies, Flower Flourish, Elegant Flourish, Flowers 2 Die and finally the Super Sprigs Die.  A little bit of inking around the edges and all done :-)

Such fabulous creations! Wow!

Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Ruth:  I'm really liking the Belle Papillon collection so I'm using it again for my card for this week!  I save all my offcuts of card when making square card blanks and I've used one here as my base.  All I've added is some ink, waxed twine, half pearls and a heart pearl slider I found in my stash.
Jacki - Hi everyone for my card today I have made a digital designed card using some of the papers and image from the new ubber sweet Winnie Special Moments download then printed it off to make a quick and easy card.
Tina I have created for you a Slider Card and used different digital design papers. You can find them in the big Set "Winnie Sugar Sprinkles"As you see, you can pull out the paper strip and the sweet unicorn runs to the right side. Then you can see a hidden text. This sweet unicorn is now available in the shop. "Be a Fluffy Unicorn"There you will also find all his friends, including themed sentiments.
Anjie - I've used papers and embellies form one of my fave collections, Picknix 1. I've used the Home Grown bundle for this, or you can buy the whole collection here, which of course is better value as you get 3 kits for less than the price of 2.
Michelle - For my project today I have used the Sticks and Bones collection I have used the papers, embellishments, animals and Digi image from this collection to make this box card.
Bev here and I used the content from Horace & Boo to decorate both the inside & outside of my make this week. Sometimes it's nice to use pre-coloured images and play around within your graphics programme.

Claire C - I've made a card using the beautiful Eden collection this week. I coloured the image (Eden Butterflies) with markers and layered her up over 3 of the lovely papers in the collection and added some of the little butterflies and a sentiment too.

Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Ruth:  I've gone back to the wonderful collection that is Belle Papillon Collection and teamed it with the versatile Flowers 2 Die.  I've layered up one of the butterflies and curled the wings for extra depth.  The flowers have been layered with left over papers plus some blue and white tissue paper that I found in my stash.

Jacki - For my card today I have used the new release Ula's life collection I have really enjoyed using these images in the last week I have coloured her in using Polychromo pencils and then added papers from Octavia collection and added the die border Toadstool I finished off with a floppy bow to complete my card.
Helen - Well what can you say about the fabulous Horace and Boo Collection, so much cuteness all in one place and delicious papers and embellies to. I've teamed them up with some of Nikky's fabulous dies to. I've used Bubbleicious and the Ribbon Gift dies you can find them here at the store.
Pauline - I've used papers from the Belle Papillon Vintage CD to create my card.  The daisy is from the Daisy Daisy Stamp & Cut Set, I stamped and fussy cut it because I didn't want the white border that is left by the die.  The sentiment is from the Daisydays CD and my die cut element is the largest die from the Ribbon/Gift Frames & Corners die set.
Karon - I have used the wonderful Lavender Tea Collection for the papers in my card today.  My flowers are cut using the Flowers 2 Die, along with the Elegant Flourish Die and the Flower Flourish Die to add some leafy elements.  Also just had to use the Elegant Nesting Dies - set of 3 to layer up.
Lisa - I have made a card using papers and elements from Belle Papillon Big Kahuna Download. I have also used a one of the dies from the Elegant Nest Dies but I changed it up a little by cutting out the middle of the die cut.
Carol - I made a card using paper from Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles Paper 3 download and the gorgeous Friendly Cuddles from the Horace and Boo Collection coloured in with copics. Using dies to cut my scalloped oval and lacy decorations for the card, topped off with some tulips and a bow.
