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

Audrey - For my creation today I chose Eden Fairy Wings which can be purchased as a single image or in the Eden Download Collection Big Kahuna Bundle.  Image is colored with Copics, I used a technique known as feathering to combine 2 colors on her wings.  I have a tutorial on how to achieve this effect on my blog.  I then cut out using an offset border on my Cameo. I have also included a detailed explanation how I accomplished this cut on my blog.  I made a pencil holder this time around.  I have additional photos on my blog with all the pencils in the holder, but wanted a better view of my image here.   I chose papers and embellies from  Winnie Fruit Punch Big Bundle Download to finish off my Things with Wings creation, sure hope you like it.  Hugs:)

AnjieI've used the oh so cute Lily Bug Love collection. I've used a pre-coloured image but you can also get her in black and white for you to colour in  HERE. The papers and embellies are also from the same collection. I've used a distress tool to slightly distress the edges of the card and paper layers, and mounted the image and the embellies onto 3D foam. More photos on my blog.
Jane – Hello! I have made a wall hanger today using some of the uber scrumptious embellishments from the LAVENDER TEA collection! I adore this download it uses my all-time fave colour combo! Deeeelish!! Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Monica- For this make, I used the puzzle pieces included on Twiggy & Toots regular collection to make a frame for the lovely precoloured Toots digi and finally added a beautiful and wise sentiment.
Fiona - This week for my design team make I have used the fabulous lily love bug digital stamp lily bug heart balloon  I have also used backing paper and embellishments from the fantastic winnie fruit punch cd  I so love these collections and its great how you can use different kits together.

Tanya - This week I've made a shadow box with an opening for the bees from the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection which is available HERE on download and HERE on CD.  The papers and the flowers and the sentiment used are also from the collection.  More details can be found on my blog.

Great makes from the DT I’m sure you will agree, we have some great ideas for you this week!
