This week the challenge is

Christmas Decor

Christmas is now only a few weeks away and lots of us are beavering away trying to get everything made in time for the big day. This week we thought we’d have a break from cards and make something to show off in our homes for Christmas. There are lots of ideas here to hopefully inspire you to make something. This challenge also allows us to use those papers and embellishments that we don’t like to use and giveaway, as we still get to look at them and stroke them!  You can use any products you like to enter as long as it follows the theme for this week. We don’t have many rules but check them out in the side bar if you need to.

We give you two weeks to enter so that means the CLOSING DATE IS 22nd December 2015 and the winners will be announced on 12th January 2016.

PRIZES:The random winner (chosen by Random.org) will receive$10 worth of downloads of your choice from the digi store!

The winner and top 3 for week 46 can be found at the bottom of this post.

So let’s see what the design team have made for us....

We’re starting off this week with a Tutorial from our very own Monica....
Monica.-For this challenge, I chose to make some "floating" ornaments, useful for a Christmas tree or a table decor. The get the "floating" effect, you will need to print your digis on transparency paper (laser printing will give a better quality). Then I added some flake snow, ribbons and a gorgeous flower on the top. The images I used are from Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun Collection and the flowers are from Picknix3.-Nordic Winter Collection. On my first picture I´m adding a step by step photo tutorial of all the process; in my second picture is a collage of all the ornaments and the centerpiece I made. You can see detail pictures  of each ornament on my blog.


Fiona GDT - Hi everyone this week I have used twiggy and toots festive fun cd again and made a wall hanging. The characters are all available on the cd. or you can have an instant download


Lynda: Happy Christmas everyone!!! :-) This week I used one of the many beautiful Christmas collections, it's called Frosted Winter. All the embellishments, flowers and papers are all on this CD or if you prefer you can also get it as a instant download. The digi stamp I used is called Ice Fishing and she can be bought separately here. xx

Julie  -- Christmas draws ever closer!  I took advantage of this week's theme to make a couple of ornaments for family members.  Both ornaments were created using a pre-printed image from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Collection.  It's available in Digital Download, and CD.  Bauble Wishes is also available as a digital stamp. The papers I used on these ornaments is also from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Collection.  I photographed these ornaments hanging on a tree in my yard.  Yes, we have SNOW!

Tanya - Hi there.  I just love making Christmas Decorations and as I've spent a lot of time this year bookfolding I've decided to make my Christmas Decoration a book fold and have decorated it using embellishments from the Twiggy & Toots Festive collection which is available on CD here and download here and then tons of glitter and sparklies.  More photos and full details on my blog.
Gail - Merry Xmas everyone, hope your preparations are moving along nicely. I was behind but I'm starting to catch up again!! My make for this weeks challenge is a Xmas plaque, I choose to use the same colour palette as the Xmas Wreath I made last week. I used the very yummy Work and Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs collection, available as a digital download or on CD-Rom.
Emma - For my Xmas Decor I have recycled a coffee jar & using my favourite collection I have made it into something to put my light up twigs in. I have used Igloo Camp from the Frosted winter collection who can be found as an individual digi Here. The paper & trees have come from the full Frosted Winter collection that can be found Here
Jane – Hello! My candle centrepiece (using a flameless candle of course) uses elements from the amazing OCTAVIA FROSTED WINTER COLLECTION.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx 
Helen - I've made a wall hanging using elements from the 'Festive Hollybobs' digi download - I've used two pre-coloured images and two of the papers.

Aunty SueWell I love making Candles for relatives and friends for Christmas. So this is my Decoration. I have used both the images and the sentiment from our very popular CD/ Download. Octivia Frosted Winter. available HERE at what i can only describe as a steal. Yes I made 2 candles


Audrey wanted to do something really spectacular this week to showcase how many projects you can create from one of the Polkadoodles CDs/Digital Download collections, so I dragged my Pazzle cutting machine out of hybernation and used 3 of the templates from Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Download Collection to create a Christmas Village.  My image of choice this time Twiggy and Toots Christmas Gift can be purchased by itself or as part of Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Download Collection.  I also chose papers, sentiments and used SVG files for the decorations on the houses from Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Download Collection.  Sure hope you like it!
AnjieThis was a plain MDF  snowflake that I got at one of the craft shows this year. I have covered it with a paper from the Angelberry Christmas collection, and added some sparkle using my Graph'It Shake silver pen. Then I printed out the same paper, a sentiment and a coordinating paper onto Centura Pearl card. I used a Tattered Lace die to cut a snowflake out around the sentiment. And then used some TL dies to cut out some Poinsettia flowers and some Holly leaves. I glued them all in place and added some pearls into the centre of the flowers. More details and photos on my blog.

Great makes from the DT I’m sure you will agree - WOW!!
