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

Our fabulous Design Team are showing you some ideas for a FAMILY theme this week - we hope you can all get some great inspiration here!...

LEIGH -  I found these amazing whales hiding in the Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles collection - you really need to look around the store and in the bundles as there are literally 100's & 100's of extras hiding away in all the value bundles! I wanted to use this image with a twist so I've combined all 3 to make a cute whale family!

LEIGH -  I also found this cute image and I couldn't resist using this to create a Thank You card I needed to make. This image is called Too Cute Turtle Love, again I combined two images together...

ROBERTA - This is a tag I made for my sister's birthday! To make it I used the Lavender digital stamp, printed it on cardboard suitable for use with alcohol markers, and then I colored it in. I punched the shape of a tag on both white card and kraft card; I uncorked the shape on kraft cardboard and glued it onto the white one. To create the background, I used Distress Oxides in shades: Seedless Preserves, Fossilized Amber, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. Then I stamped the tag, again with Oxides, using the stamps of the Textures Galore Stamp Set 11 plank and then I stamped and embossed the Queen of Hearts stamp. Finally, with a stencil and white chalk, I made dots here and there.

ANITA – We were challenged to create a card for a family member using kraft paper in the project. This card is for my daughter who is competing in a Food Network Burger Challenge to come up with a new recipe. This Burger Digital Stamp was just perfect! I printed the image on Kraft paper and colored in with pencils. The sentiment on the flag is from Winnie Celebrations #2 Sentiment Set and the lovely green starred paper is from Opera Theme Paper Craft Download.  Win or lose, I know my daughter will be great!

Kim Stewart - I created my project this week using wonderfully cute Darling Buds Primrose. I chose 3 papers from the equally adorable Winnie Let's Hang Out collection.

MARZENA - For the family theme I made a birthday card for my mother-in-law. Since my mother-in-law's birthday is coming up soon anyway, I made her a birthday card with the cute Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Digital Download. I used the colours pink to match the papers from the same collection.
I punched out the design paper in the background with theses die punchesThe flowers are from the set Picknix 1. In The Garden Download Bundle I cut out with the plotter and have attached them to the card at a slight angle. The word Happy Birthday I also cut the word to size with the plotter from the Sentiments Winnie Celebrations 1. I created the word mother-in-law from the set Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Sentiments with the die punch from the set Posydoodles DiesI added the pearls to the card with Nuvo Drops Vintage Rose.

MARZENA - I have also made a card for my mother with which I would like to thank her just like that. Here, too, I coloured the sweet Winnie in the same colours as the card for my mother-in-law, using Copics. The words Thank You from this sentimentand Mum from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Sentiment set. I printed them directly onto the white paper and cut them out as a square. The design paper is from the set: Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper Heaven. I kept the background in green and stamped it with the stamp from this stamp set. I also stamped the hearts in pale pink.

AnnetteI'm sharing my Father's Day card featuring Boo the kitty (which I've mirrored, so he's facing to the right) and some softly spotty papers from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles 2 collection. My image is water-coloured using Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers.

Maritza - Hello my crafty friends ... for this week, our theme is: use Kraft. I made a mini gift bag for a family member and I have used a digital stamp that I printed on kraft paper and I have painted it with colored pencils. The digi stamp I used is Let's Go Winnie. I have embellished this bag with remnants of digital papers from various collections and I have made a fake stitch.

Maz - For my 'Kraft Card' project, everything is from the beautiful  Rose Budd Download Collection. I subtly coloured Miss Charlotte using Copics and attached a parasol to her. Adding a little lace border anglais to the edges, to give it that shabby feel. 'To My Wife' sentiment is from Everlasting Sentiments Stamp Set.

Myriam - I have created a card for my aunt who will turn 60 in August. I positioned a picture of her into a frame from the Picknix Craft Bundle. The number ‘60’ is added twice to the digital stamp Gnometastic Birthday Surprise by using Microsoft Word. Just like I have added a Winnie Celebrations 3 birthday sentiment to the frame too.

Further, I have used embellishments from 3 different collections (which are in sale, check out the clearance section in the Polkadoodles shop!): cake is from Picknix Craft Bundle, the presents, balloon, champagne glasses & birds are from the Winston Deluxe Collection & the single white flower is from the Rose Budd Craft Collection. Background paper is from Winnie Sunshine Delights and for the sides I’ve used these Plain Distress Ink Papers

Rose - Hello friends! How are you? For today's challenge I have created a Birthday card and a slim candle box using the digital image Bella Bear Daisy  together with the digital designer papers Winnie Celebrations 3 & Lou the Teacher  incorporated with beautiful sentiment from Winnie Sugar Sunshine for the card. I have used different set of designer papers for candle box Summer Breeze Papers. I coloured the image with my favourite medium Copic Markers. 

LOVELY projects this week!
