Naz - The image I have used here is called SERENITY STARDUST and it is part of SERENITY FAIRY WISHES collection.
This collection is one of my favourite collections from Polkadoodles and it comes with beautiful black and white as well as coloured digital stamps.
Also the collection includes papers and sentiments.

Anita - Hi there such a privilege to be here, Today I have used Pretty Tuff CD collection , the papers are super lush and little jake is just awesome and available on his own Here. The embossing folder is from Darice.
Scatty Jan For my embossing project I decided on a card - I have a few Birthdays ahead so went for a Birthday card using the scrummy Maddie With Present, you can find her as a digi here. I coloured her with Graph'It Markers and a few Polychromos. I used two embossing folders from Sizzix - the Happy Birthday one and the Cupcake. Added a legnth of ribbon , a couple of gems and some pearl flourishes to finish

Julie - My embossing is dry, it's one of the Embossalicous folders from Crafters Companion, it's a 6 x 6 called Bird Houses which I thought would go perfectly the the beautiful coloured owl image called Hats Off Twiggy from Polkdadoodles, the collection is called Twiggy and Toots and is available as a full digi dowwnload, CD and the image is available singly in the Polkadoodles Digi Download store HERE.The paper, gingham bows and flowers are also in the collection

Wendy - I've used both dry and heat embossing on this project. I have dry embossed the backing paper, which can be found as part of the Nikky mini kit. The bonnet image is one of the embellishment digi's from the Rose Budd collection. My heat embossing is the semtiment in the corner.
Jane – Hi everyone! This week I used the stunningly beautiful EDEN FAIRY WINGS to decorate a small gift bag. She can be bought separately or as part of the amazing value EDEN BIG KAHUNA BUNDLE. I dry embossed the background paper and also the gorgeous butterflies and heat embossed using gold Frantage around the image. Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Caz Hi all...For my use some embossing make i have used the cute Serenity Fairy Kisses coloured with my graph it markers. The embossing folder i have had for ages, but thought it suited the image..Background paper is from Eden Collection-Paper Heaven 4. Some die cut butterflies, and bow added. And strip of lace..
Tanya - There are a few ways of embossing, but I’ve decided to use one of my embossing folders called ‘Swiss Dots’ for the card backgrounds/matt and layering and make another Christmas card. Well it’s never too early to get started and I’ve got a few Christmas things made already. It’s good to get ahead of yourself even if it does feel a little bit strange creating Christmas projects when the sun is shining. I've used the trees and merry christmas bunting from one of Nikky's fab CD collections called Magical Winter

Emma - For my embossing card i have used the super cute Winston Bear Gone fishing who can be found Here, I have distressed the embossed paper with distressed ink to bring it out. All the papers & embellishment are from the complete Winston collection that can be found Here.
Lynda: I decided to use the beautiful Twiggy & Toots collection for this weeks make. It's available as a digital collection or on a CD. The papers, birthday writing and the pre-coloured image are all from this collection. I dry embossed the balloons and kraft card, Have fun Lynda xx
Yvonne - I have an addiction with Polkadoodles Serenity Collection and this week I used 'Earthstar'. I coloured her with my polychromo pencils. I have used papers from the Serenity Collection and also used one of the papers from the Distressed Wood papers. I embossed the cloud paper with a clud embossing folder. I added a wee bit of shabby pink frantage to the image and heat embossed it.
Monica - For my project I`m using one of the new digis from Fairy Tales Happen, the beautiful Snow White and to cutting files from Polkadoodles store that were perfect to work with embossing folders: apple card template and decorative nest, From both files I got a beautiful and clean cut no matter how fancy it was.
Anjie - I have used a pre coloured image, embellies, word art and a sentiment all from the fabulous Work and Play 10 download collection. You can buy this as a CD should you wish, and also in smaller download collections. And should you wish to buy the image on it's own you can. The embossing folder is from Tattered Lace. More photos and details on my blog.
