So let’s see what the design team have made for us and to give you a little bit of inspiration all the design team have used something new to them….

Jane P.-Just loving this Summertime Collection.  I used the Serif Craft Artist app to create my card this week and printed it out on Ultimate Graphic Paper from the Polkadoodles store
Gail - For this weeks challenge, I've created an art journal page using the sunglasses from the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles VIP collection, available as an instant download or on CD-ROM. I've also used stamps from the following stamp sets to add interest to the background - Lemonade Fizz, Lavender Tea & Magic Garden, full details over on my blog.
Fiki-on my card I use image Winnie and sentiment from Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection.
AnjieI have used the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection (again). This is made using design sheet number 7 which you can buy on its own HERE. The "Something New" I have used is the postcard stamp which is from Wish You Were Here stamp set. More info and photos on my blog.

Julie - This week I have used the lovely Stamp Me - Summertime stamps and a cheap circle frame that I have covered in bling.

Lori - This week, I am using this cutie-patootie from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime collection :) My "something new" part of my make is the background design papers - which you can find in this collection as well! Happy crafting!

Jane S – All the pre-coloured elements I have used for my DL card are from the stunningly pretty LEMONADE FIZZ COLLECTION which has the most delicious colour palette.  I have used some new dies too.  Well never been used anyway! Oops! Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Monica.- Just by the end of Summer, I chose to use Summer time, a cd I have never used before. This cd is also available as a digital download. Air balloon, clouds, papers and sentimente, all were taken from this cd.

Jacki for my card I have use the Winnie in Wonderland download collection both images have not been used before and the style of card is new(ish)to me. The paper I used is from the same collection and I added sentiments,a large fussy bow with button a pearls to finish.
Nancy - For my card this week I have used Design Sheet 5 from the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection.
My "Use Something New" is a brand new cutting machine!
Tanya - For this week's make I've used one of the newer collections called Summertime CD which you can get here and I've created a card using some of the flowers which I resized in Craft Artist in three sizes and then cut out and layered them over one another.  The papers are also from the collection, as is the sentiment, which had been black and white chalkboard effect but I recoloured it to co-ordinate with the papers used.
Great makes from the DT and I’m sure you will agree that we have some great ideas for you this week!
