So let’s see what the design team have made for us….
Gail - Clean and simple is not my go to style as a rule, I'm a messy crafter and more is more with my usual crafting style lol but I have to say I'm rather pleased how this turned. I used the truly fab Scientist from the Work and Play 12 collection. All the elements used are from the Science bundle available as instant download here but if you fancy the whole collection you can purchase Work and Play 12 on CD-ROM or as an instant download.

Jacki -  My clean and simple card is made using Winnie Fruit punch digi Dandelionday from the download collection and paper and butterflies are from the Winston collection  I resized the butterflies to make the smaller wings to give more dimension and covered with glossy accent and glitter before sticking together and popping on card.  Once dried I added the antennae and sparkle trail,

Fikreta - For my clean and simple card I have used the mailbox image from Winston series
 Full details can be found on my blog.

LoriFor my card I used the Winston Bear Collection downloadable files - design sheets and sentiments file. Added some glittery pick gumdrops and wa-laaa! So quick and easy

Jane P - For my clean and simple make this week I have used the pre-coloured Dance Star from Winnie Fruit Punch Collection.

NancyFrom the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Fruit Punch Collection I used this sweet black & white image and coloured it with my Spectrum Noir Markers. Then I used a paper, flower tag and sentiment from the collection to finish my CAS card!

Julie - It was really nice to try a CAS make, so out of my comfort zone, but made super easy with the new Stamp Me stamps - I have used a stamp from the Summertime collection with Adirondack inks.

Jane S – Hello! My CAS creation features the gorgeously pretty and fabulously named MISS KELLY VON SWEETS .  She is available as part of the amazing WINNIE SUGAR SPRINKLES COLLECTION as is the sentiment and paper.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

Tanya - For this week's challenge I've made a bookmark using one of the pages from the adult colouring collection called Colour Therapy Florabunda which I've coloured with some pastel gel pens and covered with touches of glitter and a bit of ribbon.  More details on my blog.

Monica- For my CAS card, I had the adorable Rocco waiting for the perfect wave. Of course, I used the brand new Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles Collection

Anjie - For my make I have used the fab new Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection too. I have used an embellie and a sentiment from the collection and used a few strips of card from my scrap box. I added faux stitching around the edges of the card strip and the sentiment which I split into two. I then fussy cut the life preserver and mounted it onto 3D foam and there you have it, a very CAS.
Romina - This week my clean and simple style uses distress ink to make my background and some added sequins.  I just love this digi which is called Winnie Wishes which you can get HERE.  More photos and details can be found on my blog.
