The DT's twist on the challenge theme is Traditional Christmas
and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

Please say a big hello to the newest member of our Design Team Tina Focking
If you get a moment why not go and check out her fabulous blog. Tina has created this fabulous make for you this week, check it all out below :-)

Tina - Today I give my debut in this fabulous design team.  I created a Christmas doily with Winnie Winterland - Yummy Gingerbread.  I´ve colored them with polychromos. The trees and the blue background paper come from the Winnie Winterland - Big Kahuna Bundle. I cut the rosette with the Cameo Plotter from white glitter paper. It looks as beautiful as shining snow. The edges I have easily distresst and then all layers with hot glue put together. Now the Doily can be hung on the wall or on a door. Please feel free to visit my Blog for more Photos.


And here's the rest of the amazing Design team makes this week :-)

AnjieI have used the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Christmas collection which is just adorable. Just how cute is this little owl santa! Everything you see on the card is from the collection. I've slightly distressed the edges of the papers and image and added some faux stitching with a white pen. Everything is raised using 3D foam. More photos on my blog.


Michelle - I have made a Christmas Bauble using Winnie's Winterland Collection  This was fun to make I just resized all my images in word to the size I needed and then put it all together and used
some fake snow.


Tracy - Today I have used my favourite Christmas Collection - Festive Christmas. I wanted to add the Robin and use of flowers to surround the mailbox which is the focus. Once again lots of fussy cutting and adding distress ink to the edges to give it a more aged tradition look.


Lou - I have used the O Christmas Tree stamp set to create my huge poinsettia which I have coloured with distress inks. The petals were stamped and embossed in white first. backing paper is from the matching Festive Christmas CD.


Gail - I've used the beautiful Festive Christmas collection along with the some of the fab new dies, Flowers 1, Bubbleicious and Cherry Blossom Branch die sets.


Scatty Jan - This week am sharing a stocking that I made and decorated using Festive Christmas collection.


Bev here, with my take on a traditional Christmas to me that means good old green & red. I opted for the very useful Festive Christmas collection and cut out a few pre-coloured images & papers. I just added some bakers twine, a bell and a sentiment from my crafty stash.


Ruth - I've gone for a golden oldie this week - all the way back to Paper Boutique 2 - Creative Christmas.  Simply printed all the elements, cut them out and layered up with foam pads.  Great for something to do whilst watching Christmas films!


Claire C - I've made a quick card using the fabulous design sheets from Winnie Winterland, just adding ribbon, lace a charm and of course some glitter! 


Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you.
Our Winner and Top 3 of our Anything Goes Challenge Weeks 48/49 will be announced next Friday.
