So let’s see what the design team have made for us….
AnjieThis week I have made a tag from the left over bits of one of the design sheets from the fab Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection. It is from design sheet 1. There are so many bits on those design sheets, I still had left over bits after making the card and the tag! All I added extra was the sentiment. More info and photos of the card I made on my blog.
Julie - So I finally got some time to play with the Fab new Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection,  I have hand coloured the image with Copics & Graph It markers and created the sky with inks and ink dusters, hopefully this will be me it two weeks time as I head off to the sunny Greek island of Zante.

Jane S - Hello! I have also used the wonderful WINNIE STARFISH AND SANDCASTLES collection and it is sooooo yummy!! I merged two of the digis to place Winnie and her donkey into the Lifebuoy and used a snow globe die to make a porthole. J Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Gail - Morning all, I've made a bookmark, I've been using receipts and scraps of paper so it was time to make myself a decent bookmark! The bookmark was made using pre-coloured elements from the lush Winnie In Wonderland collection, available on CD-ROM or as an instant download.  

 Monica- As you can see, we are in love with the new Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles!!! I used different items from its designs sheets to make a fun fold squares card.
If you want to know what girls want, take a look into my blog.

Tanya - So for this week's make I have used the Lily Bug Love Collection to make a large 8x8 card.  Every element is from the collection and I have coloured the digi using my Graph It Pens.  Full details over on my blog.
Fikreta - For my make this week I have chosen to use one of the design sheets from Winnie Fruit Punch Collection which you can get here and the design sheet can be bought here on its own.
LoriWhat an awesome theme this week, "For The Girls." I used the design sheet #2, kraft paper #17 and sentiment from the Winston Bear Collection. I inked all the edges of the buttons, sentiment and heart and used dimensionals to pop them up. You can find the downloadable collection here: 
Jacki -  For this card I have used images papers and images and elements from the Winnie in Wonderland Big Kahuna Download Collection available HERE .  The papers have been distressed then inked with distress inks. The images have been merged together layering them together over one of the tags then printed out and coloured with polychromos and luminance pencils. The sentiment is also from this collection together with the drink me that I added to a small tag and then added to a bottle. The stalk is from the embellishment section and has been fussy cut out and added to the card everything else is from my stash.

Romina - For my card I have used this Winnie Fruit Punch digi called One For You
I created my backround with distress ink and put on my cups glossy accent. It' was so easy and fun!
Full details on my blog.

Jane P - This week I tried something different with the design sheets on the Winnie Fruit Punch collection CD. I used the background paper and cut it out making it a frame for the image!  You can get the collection here on Download and here on CD.

More details on my blog.

Nancy - This card was inspired by the patterned paper from the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection that I used in my background. The image is called Make a List. I coloured it with my Spectrum Noir Markers.  You'll find the collection here:
