So lets see what our Design Team have made using the inspiration of Blue and White Christmas Decorations....

Tanya - So for this week's challenge I've recycled an old candle jar and decorated with blue and white flowers coloured with different mediums and ribbon and inside are some battery operated tea light candles. I've used the flowers and leaves from the Festive Collection you can get right here on CD....

Jacki For my make this week I decided to make a Christmas tree (why not go all in hey!!!) I have used papers from the Twiggy & Toots & work & play 5 hollybobs collection. Although it may look difficult it was actually really easy to make.

Jane P. - I love snow globes and decided to make my version of a snow globe using the lantern pattern from the Lavender Tea Collection and embellishments from the Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Collection. There is no water but I added sequins for a shaker snow globe.

Anjie - This started out life as a plain chipboard shape. I used Octavia Frosted Winter to create it. Lots more details on my blog....

Fiki- this week I made shadow box using images from Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Collection.
I use snowflake dies inside and outside the box. Inside I put artificial snow so when you shake the box it look like that snow is falling.



Jane S - I have made a hanger using the gorgeous Picknix 3 - Nordic Winter Collection.

Monica.-For this challenge, I made a Christmas table centerpiece. I used very light blue and white papers included in Twiggy & Toots.-Festive Fun collection. With the silhouette of the trees included I made a cutting file and cut it 4 times in different colors, to make a 3d Christmas tree. The focal point in the centerpiece is the adorable Twiggy & Toots Nativity surrounded with a white Christmas wreath.

Gail - For this weeks challenge, I've made a wall hanging using the gorgeous new release from Polkadoodles, Festive Christmas.

Julie - Today I have used an item I purchased for £1, to create a Chrismas wall hanging, using Wandering Star from Octavia Frosted Winter.

Lori - For my card this week, I decided to go a very CAS route with a dry embossed background (with cute Christmas ornaments) then added this very pretty blue bauble and sentiment from the new Festive Christmas downloadable collection....

Julie - This week I have used papers and images from the the Octavia Frosted Winter collection to create some Chrismas crackers and filled them with yummy haribo sweets.

Monica.- Looking at Christmas collection to achieve this challenge, I found out that Work & Play 5.-Festive Hollybobs includes a collection of 15 different bags, just perfect for Christmas wrapping. For my project I´m using milk carton box #1. The adorable precoloured elf, the sentiment and the bow are also included in the same collection.

Lori - For my make this week, I made a Christmas card using elements from the Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun collection! I can't get enough of these cuties!!

So let’s see what the design team have made for us using Ribbon and Lace as an inspirational theme...
Tanya - I've gone all pretty and flowery this week for my ribbon/lace make and used one of the word arts from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection as the focal point on the card which I've decoupaged and glittered and added a wooden caterpillar to from my stash.  The backing paper is also from the same collection which you can get on CD here and DOWNLOAD here.  More details on my blog.

Jane P.- This week I tried something a bit different with the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection.  I set Winnie on her tree limb on a piece of acetate for the front cover and put my embellishments and designer sheet paper as the inside of the card.
Jacki For my card  I have used papers and pre coloured image from  Winnie Fruit Punch....I also used papers from the Octavia Collection.  I have gone for a real shabby chic look with this card using distress inks and diluted paint but keeping the girly feel with the large bow and lots of lace and ribbon.... 
Fiki-for this week I chose to make card with Design sheet work and play!

Nancy - For my card this week I used the wonderful Lavender Tea Collection! The lovely sentiment is from the collection and says: "Let's have some tea and talk about happy things."

Gail - For this weeks make, I've been playing with the Little Kingdom digital collection and image transfer technique again, more info over on my blog.

Julie - This week I have used one of my favourite images and one of the first Polka Doodles images that I coloured, the lovely Snow White from the Eden Collection.

Jane S - I have used the lovely Lily Bug Love Collection for my tag with plenty of ribbon and lace! 

Monica.-For this challenge I wanted to try a new fold card. So I made two different cards with the same fold: one for birthday greetings using the colorful collection Daisydays and the other one for Christmas using the always adorable Work & Play 5.-Festive Hollybobs





Anjie - I used the amazing Winnie In Wonderland collection to create this gatefold card. You can see how I put it all together on my blog, with lots of info and loads more photos.

Lori - I used the oh-so-fun and adorable Winnie Fruit Punch collection to make my card this week. I added a paper lace heart and some pink satin ribbon - more details on my BLOG...
