Let’s see what the fabulous team have made us for this weeks challenge!

Anjie - For my project this week I have made a gift box for my make to put a present inside.I have used a paper (printed onto card) and embellishments from the Work & Play Festive Hollybobs CD. I have printed the poinsettia 3 times and decoupaged it up to give it some dimension. The presents, reindeer, holly and sentiment are all on 3D foam to give them dimension as well.

Scatty Jan I decided to make up one of the little bags from Work and Play Festive Hollybobs CD - I say little but it stands at 6inches so an ideal gift bag. I also used the pre coloured North Pole, Heart and Candy Cane from the same CD, adding a little white shimmer detail sparkle and glossy accents. The bow is also from the collection.

Crafting Vicky - So in my case I thought the theme would mean to show some presents and gifts on the creation.... Therefore I used the great image Angel Pressies that you can also find as part of the great set Angelberry Christmas.  I used some papers and some embellishments from the fabulous Work and Play 5 Festive Hollybobs.  I printed the presents twice so that I could pop it up with some foam.  The sentiment is also from that set.

Julie - I have used the gorgeous poinsettia paper from the Festive Hollybobs Download to make my gift bag,  the image is called Hollybobs Presents and is availably singly from the store HERE or in the download collection and also on the Festive Hollybobs CD. The bow and the sentiment are also included in the download and CD, perfect for cards and projects at this time of year.  I then just finished the bag off with some bakers twine and some pretty edging at the bottom of the bag using my Martha Stewart punch


 
 
Caz For my project I have made a pop up card.  Using Santa available as a Clear Stamp, also as a Digi Stamp... All the papers, elements and sentiment, are all from Work n Play collection 5,  Festive Hollybobs available as a Download, or on CD. I love this collection everything you need for christmas cards.


Tanya - So this week the challenge is ‘Presents & Gifts’ and I’ve decided to get ahead with some little stocking filler presents by making some sweetie bags topped with the absolutely gorgeous Design Sheets printed out onto card and decoupaged and glittered.  The Design Sheets are on the Festive Hollybobs Work & Play download and also available on HERE  and finished off with Stickles Glitter Glue in Xmas Red.  More details can be found on my blog.


Wendy - With Christmas creeping up thick and fast, I thought I'd use the opportunity to use my DT projects to make my gifts for the family. With so many to do though, hand colouring isn't always an option, so I decided to use a design sheet from the  Festive Hollybobs collection. Every image and paper is taken purely from 1 single A4 sheet.and with the addition of some sparkly Stickles it's easy and cost effective.

Nikki - My card for the "presents" challenge is using the adorable Presents digital image. She is available in the Work and Play 5 Festive Hollybobs collection. You can either purchase the CD version or the instant download version. The sentiment and digital papers are also from the same collection. That is one of the nice things about the Polkadoodles collections is the ability to have everything you need to make a creative project right at your fingertips.


Monica - I love handmade gift. So for this project I made an apron giftbox filled with homemade baking goodies. The lovely girl chef is from the brand new Work and Play Collection 7. All the pattern papers, the adorable reindeer and the bells are from Work and Play Collection 5.-Festive Hollybobs.


Cibele -In keeping with this week's challenge theme, I chose to make gift tags that look like little presents. I used the digi papers and sentiments from the Work and Play Festive Hollybobs Collection. I printed the sentiment tickets and then cut them out and colored the little holly leaves and berries with Copic markers. I added a little bit of matching curling ribbon and a dimensional sticker from my stash. The finished cards are 3" x 3". These are easily mass produced and perfect to make with your leftover digi scraps. 


KateI decided this week not to use an image but to use some of the amazing Christmas papers in the 'Work & Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs' Collection to make some gift tags for the start of my pressie wrapping this weekend ....... BUT I still managed to find a teeny bit of colouring to do :) All the details are on my blog.

Emma - For my project this week i have made a little gift bag & put a few craft bits inside. I have used the gorgeous Rose Budd Miss Hetty who can be found as a digi Here. The papers & the roses that i have cut out are from the full download Rose Budd collection Here or you can also get the CD collection Here. I have coloured up the beautiful Miss Hetty with Copic's & Pro Marker & have added a little bit of stickles glitter to the rose on her hat

Jane – Hi everyone! For my Presents & Gifts project I chose to dive into the awesome Work & Play 5 – Festive Hollybobs Full CollectionYou really are spoilt for choice with all the gorgeous elements on here.  So here is my diorama/shadow box thingy card (not the proper name I’m sure) which I adore making! So dimensional and sooooo easy to do! Well I wouldn't do it otherwise!!  I made a few little pressies from some of the fab papers and added a bit of ribbon and there you go!  Enjoy your day! xx

Lynda Hi all :-) This is my first project for such a wonderful team! The theme is presents and gifts so I decided to try something new and make a shadow box card. I make the little presents using beautiful papers from the Work & Play Collection 5 FESTIVE HOLLYBOBS Collection you can buy this here.  I needed someone to make the presents so I chose this cute Elf digi stamp and added a sentiment ticket from the same collection. Looking forward to seeing your designs xx

Yvonne - Hi there everyone - so for the challenge of 'Presents and Gifts' I opted for an image with a present in it and I made a tag so I could attach it to the gift. Genius - I am not! Like so many of the rest of the team I reached for 'Work & Play; Festive Hollibobs' which you can get as a digi download collection or as a CD-Rom. I used the fab pre-coloured image of 'Tree Fun' which you can buy as a black and white digi image here.  I used a backing paper from Festive Hollibobs collection to cut my tag out of, and printed some holly embellies too.  I glittered a die cut snowflake and added a snowflake border to make the tag really special.



WOW! What a great collection of inspiration for you, some really fab makes from the team this week!
