---------------------------------------------

So let's get to today's challenge...

Let's take a look at the Design Team inspiration this week and the team were asked to make ANYTHING WITH A CLOSURE.. 

Sam - This week's Design Team challenge was to make a card with a closure...well I don't think I have made one of there before so I'll be honest I had to look to see what this meant. Even after 18 years of card making I am still learning new things!  So I used the pre-coloured Polar Bear imagine from the new Festive Fun Gnome collection and papers from the Elvis Wesley ChrisMoosePrintable papers.  You really have to check out both those super cute collections!  Happy Crafting!


Madison - For this weeks Design challenge, it was make a card with a closure of some kind. I must admit I was unsure at first but then this style of card popped into my head. It's an envelope style closure, but when you lift the panels at the front you reveal the card. I have used some ink blending and the gorgeous Waddy Surprise with some added glitter. I have used a tag as the closure element on the front of the card, to hide the velcro closure. 

Candace For today's challenge project, the theme is Christmas, use any products and make a card with a closure.  I made this angled gate-fold card with a latch closure.  I used the images from the Winnie Winterland - Design Sheet 10Winnie Winter Wishes Paper and the sentiment inside the card is from Winnie White Christmas Sentiments.

Jane  I have a window scene to share today with the fabulous PUT YOUR BOOTS ON from the GNOME FESTIVE FUN collection. I created an ‘on the roof’ scene using the NIGHT SKY and LITTLE KINGDOM clear stamp sets and then created the window with papers from the PEELING PAINT & CHRISTMAS CHEER pads.

Marina - I used my markers to color the Hollybobs Little Elf digital stamp
and then cut out the design. I created  a  box as my base of my card and I decorated it with the  Baked With Love - Paper Heaven 2 design paper. I glue my Elf like standing in snow with some gifts nearby. As a sentiment i used "Merry Christmas" circle from Baked With Love - Sentiments.
Parmi - I created this tri fold card with a ribbon fastening which was created from two card bases fixed together to create a tri fold opening.  The main image on the card was created using the "Gnometastic Birthday gift" svg file which is printed and cut out using my circuit.  This was coloured using alcohol markers to add dimension to the image.  I also used the "gnometastic sentiments" which I cut from two colours so I could overlap them to create a shadow on the text. A sentiment was added to the front of the card and one panel inside with a further gnome image inside.  
Happy DIGI CHOOSDAY everyone, For today's challenge of anything goes with christmas and a closure of some type I created a card with a band holding the card closed. I put my my main image on the band. I chose Too Cute Snowmen Frosty Hugs, so adorable. 
As a surprise under the main image and band I hid another image and used my favourite girl WINNIE(Surprise) from the Winnie White Christmas line called Snowy FootPrints.  I used papers from the new Elvis Wesley paper bundle. To hold the band down i embedded a negative and a positive magnet between the cardstock pieces and that keeps it closed.
LEE - Happy Christmas! This time we're making cards with closures... so I couldn't resist a fun little gift card holder! The Gnome Let's Get Blitzen Stamp and Matching Die set is so freakin' cute!! I just love them so much and had to do some pink coloring! LOL Also these gorgeous silver leaves are becoming my favorite for winter cards! They add such sparkle! A few little Dewdrops and some Satin Cord and voila! A Christmas card and gift all in one and it still folds flat to mail! I hope you all have fun creating some cheerful Christmas and winter cards! 
LINH  – Today I made a 5x7 gatefold card with a belly band closure...

 I love all the papers from the Gnome Much Fun bundle (this bundle comes with a LOT of goodies). It was hard to choose but this one was perfect for this card.  Wanda Penguin Surprise is the perfect little surprise reveal when the shutter opens. He’s just so adorable! Check out how I made this card in my YT process video below!



WOW!! The team really came up with some AMAY-ZING ideas & videos this week for you - I LOVE these projects!!

---------------------------------------------

So let's get to today's challenge...

Let's take a look at the Design Team inspiration this week and the team were asked to make ANYTHING WHICH IS NOT A CARD..

Annette (Netty's Cards): My project this week is a large Christmas tag featuring Frosty Hugs and some pretty holly papers from Winnie White Christmas.  As usual my image is watercoloured using Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers.

Myriam – This time I have made a Christmas tag. I have printed the precoloured digital stamp Gingerbread Candy Cane several times and build it up in 3D with foam pads. All used material - digital stamp, papers & embellishments – are from the Baked With Love Gingerbread Bundle or can be bought separately. In the center of the tag, I left some room to write down the receiver’s name.
Maz - For my Christmas - Not a Card theme, I made a trio of tags using super cute snowmen from Frosty Winter Smiles Collection - Hello Frosty SnowmanHappy Snowmen Couple and New Friends Snowman (flipped) The beautiful backing paper and Christmas foliage are from Winnie Winterland Big Kahuna Bundle. All details can be found on my blog.

Rose hello friends in blogland - As for Today's challenge, I have create few Gift Tags to go on bags to other gifts . I am using pre coloured digital images Winnie Winterland - Design Sheet 13 and Baked With Love - Design Sheet 37 with digital images - Winnie Winterland - Paper Heaven 1. These have turned out so beautifully - who would love one on their gifts . Read more on my blog . 
Maritza: Hello my crafty friends, I made a gift bag for this week. I have used digital image Bella Bear Ice Skating, I have painted this image with colours pencils, these papers are digital of collection Picknix 3 Nordic Winter.
ANITA - This week’s challenge was Christmas, anything but a card. I decided to make more tags with Winnie from “Lantern – Digital Stamp Download – Winnie White Christmas printables”. Winnie was printed, along with the Happy Christmas sentiment (from Christmas Joy Digi Scrap DOWNLOAD bundle) and then colored in with alcohol markers. Some silver metallic pen was added for the buttons and lantern, Wink of Stella for the fur and Glossy Accents for her wings and berries. I love these tags!
ROBERTA - To make this tag, I first printed the Bella Bear Bauble digital stamp on cardboard suitable for use with alcohol markers, colored it with Spectrum Noir Classique and cut it out. I cut out the shape of a tag both with white bazzil and with one of the digital papers from the Winnie Winterland - Paper Heaven 5 collection. I then ripped it and glued it on top of the white shape. The sentiment is part of the Winnie White Christmas Sentiments collection...
Francesca: Hello! For this new challenge I made my first milk box by using Printable Papers 1 - Winnie White Christmas digi, then I added the adorable Eli with snowflakes and Seasons greeting for the sentiment. 

MARZENA - I printed the unicorn on transparent paper on the laser printer and coloured it with Copics. Then I cut out the unicorn using these tag dies and attached it to the candle using baking paper. I stamped Seasons Greetings on the tag, attached it to the candle with a thread and decorated it with a small wooden star. 

Once again, amazing projects to get you all inspired - thanks to the team as always for their hard work!

---------------------------------------------

So let's get to today's challenge...

Let's take a look at the Design Team inspiration this week which is all about CHRISTMAS WINDOWS.. 

We are delighted to welcome Marina to the Design Team! We look forward to sharing her fabulous projects with you all - please go and follow all the team blogs, we have some fabulously talented crafters on the team who are full of inspiration for you! 

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is Christmas, use any products and make a window.  I used the image Advent Calendar as the main focus of my card.  The characters popping out of windows are too cute!!  I made an easel base card using papers from Winnie Christmas Wishes Paper and the sentiment I popped up for the easel is from Winnie White Christmas Sentiments.

Jane  Today I am using the fabulous ELVIS WESLEY on my slimline card and this digi is called SUGAR HIT. I created a shaker window and added a ‘basket’ made from the WOODLAND DOOR die set. The paper and sentiment are all from the ELVIS WESLEY BIG KAHUNA BUNDLE.

Sam - For my DT challenge with a window...well I made lots of windows in my Christmas Village scene for the little lights to shine out of.  I used the image Buying the Tree from the Winnie White Christmas Range and a the paper for the trees from Winnie Winterland Paper Heaven 4.  Happy Christmas Crafting.

Madison - For the challenge to include a window in your card, I chose to make it as if you were looking through a window to a Christmassy scene. I have used some red and kraft card to make the window on the card blank and then some acetate. The cute scene inside is the Gift Wrapping Station  I have printed it several times to decoupage parts of the image to give it some depth. The background is from the Winnie White 2 collection. I have simply added a sentiment on finish the card off.  



KIM STEWART - Are you a create Christmas cards all year kinda person, or scramble at the last minute person? I cut a round circle in the front of my card, layered coloured red cardstock as well as some decorative paper from the Winnie White Christmas paper bundle 1,  I picked a digi from the Winnie White Christmas collection, called Christmas Shopping , matted her onto some red cardstock and placed her inside the card so she shows through the round window i cut to show her off.  I used a few pieces that i fussy cut from the Winnie White Christmas Design sheet 8 which i used on the front of the card. As well as some red and pink mulberry flowers to finish off the card design.  I glittered the trim and pom pom on Winnie's hat with Diamond Glitter and used glitter glue on the presents.

Parmi - I created the card using a die from my stash to make the window design on the front which I added to a card base along with the “Winne Christmas Wishes Digi Paper 2” to create the look of wall paper complete with skirting.  Through the window you can see Winne playing the the snowman which was created using the “Winnie Winter Frozen Digi stamp” which I coloured with alcohol markers and added the image to the inside of the card with a simple Merry Christmas sentiment.  The Winnie Winter frozen images were adapted to remove the “happy birthday” and added “for you” on the card that Winnie holds.



LINH – For this week’s challenge, I cut a window right into the front of my card so you can peek straight through to the inside. When you open the card, you see this framed Cosy Christmas scene with Winnie by the fireplace and her house fully decorated for the holidays. I used my Prismacolor pencils to color this sweet image so I could get into all the beautiful details of this digi stamp. Check out how I made this card in my YT process video.

Marina - It is that time of year when every child sends ONE letter to our beloved Santa Claus! For this project I used my markers to color the Hollybobs Cards digital stamp and then cut out the design. I used an A4 green paper for the base of my card and folded it in half. I used the Baked With Love - Paper Heaven 2 design paper with the green trees as a background, the "Christmas" sentiment from Baked With Love - Sentiments, a window and my lovely red girl with the LETTER for Santa Claus, standing on the snow.
Once again, amazing projects to get you all inspired - thanks to the team as always for their hard work!
