So let’s see what the design team have made for us and we're starting off with a great tutorial by Helen....

Helen - I've made a little gift wallet using a pre-coloured digi stamp, paper and a sentiment from the brand new 'Winnie Sugar Sprinkles' collection available here as a download and here as a CD.
1. Cut card measuring 12 cm by 29.5cm and with the longest side facing you, score at 12cm, 13.5cm, 25.5cm and 26cm.  Fold in to a purse shape. Decorate the front of the wallet and the flap using contrasting plain paper and patterned paper as shown below:
2. Print out a digi (I've used a pre-coloured version) and die cut into a circle.  Mat on to a contrasting coloured die cut circle and stick on the front of the wallet, making sure you stick it at the bottom of the panel so the flap doesn't cover the image when the wallet is closed.  Print out a sentiment, mat on to contrasting paper and attach to the flap of the wallet:
3. Cut two pieces of card measuring 12cm by 8cm.  With the shorter edge in front of you, score at 2cm, 4cm and 6cm and concertina fold.  Put double sided tape on the two outside panels of the concertina fold and attach one side to the inside of the wallet. Remove the tape from the other side and fold the wallet together to attach the two sides together.
4. Tie a piece of ribbon to one side of the image to close the wallet - it can be slipped on and off rather than being untied each time the wallet is opened.  Finish with self adhesive pearls as shown in the photo at the top of this tutorial.


Fiona - This week for my make I have used something from the new collection Work and Play 12 I have used the Barista Coffee/cake bundle set. That is available seperately. The kit is so perfect as It has everything you need.  I so loved this when it was on Create and Craft so of course I had to have it.  Everything on the card Is in the bundle set.
Jane – Hello! I decided to make a centre stepper Mother’s Day card which features the gorgeous CINDERS and papers and elements from the EDEN BIG KAHUNA DOWNLOAD.  Nikky has created some gorgeous fairytale ladies, all of which you can find HERE. Have a lovely crafty day! xxx 
Monica- For my Mother´s Day make, I altered a bottle mixing two different papers from Eden Collection, then used a huge flower as a focal point and finally added some elements, all included in this collection.
Lynda:  How could I not use the beautiful Winnie sugar sprinkles springtime collection.  for this weeks challenge it's adorable!!  The digi stamp I used is available here. I finished my design off with some of  the pretty butterfly and bunny rabbit elements that are also included :-) xx
Gail - For my Mothers Day challenge project, I created a card using the brand new Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection from Polkadoodles. I got out a fav medium of mine, Brushos, to create a bold & bright background for the gorgeous floral image from the Winnie collection. It's a a fairly simple make, printing the flowers onto acetate and then attaching it to the Brusho background.
Tanya  For my make this week I've used the fabulous Twiggy & Toots collection to make a pink themed card for my lovely mum.  It's her favourite colour and she loves owls too, so they're just the best combinations ever. I've made a box style card and you can see more photos on my blog.  Everything apart from the ribbon and twine can be found on the collection.  I've just added a bit of my own text to the heart embellie on the front of the box card. 

Audrey used another coloring page this week, choosing a page from Adult Coloring Pages Bundle 5 for my background and then I merged Serenity Joyful Digi Stamp into the center of the page using Gimp.  I added sentiments and embellies (flowers, butterflies, bird and mushrooms) from Twiggy and Toots Owl Full Download Collection.  I found this chicken wire frame at my local craft shop and thought it would make a perfect Mother's Day gift for my mom because she can hang it on the wall and look at it all year long.  Hope you like it!

Great makes from the DT I’m sure you will agree.
