So let’s see what the design team have made for us and to give you a little bit of inspiration all the design team have used something new to them….

Jane P.-Just loving this Summertime Collection.  I used the Serif Craft Artist app to create my card this week and printed it out on Ultimate Graphic Paper from the Polkadoodles store
Gail - For this weeks challenge, I've created an art journal page using the sunglasses from the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles VIP collection, available as an instant download or on CD-ROM. I've also used stamps from the following stamp sets to add interest to the background - Lemonade Fizz, Lavender Tea & Magic Garden, full details over on my blog.
Fiki-on my card I use image Winnie and sentiment from Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection.
AnjieI have used the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection (again). This is made using design sheet number 7 which you can buy on its own HERE. The "Something New" I have used is the postcard stamp which is from Wish You Were Here stamp set. More info and photos on my blog.

Julie - This week I have used the lovely Stamp Me - Summertime stamps and a cheap circle frame that I have covered in bling.


Lori - This week, I am using this cutie-patootie from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime collection :) My "something new" part of my make is the background design papers - which you can find in this collection as well! Happy crafting!

Jane S – All the pre-coloured elements I have used for my DL card are from the stunningly pretty LEMONADE FIZZ COLLECTION which has the most delicious colour palette.  I have used some new dies too.  Well never been used anyway! Oops! Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Monica.- Just by the end of Summer, I chose to use Summer time, a cd I have never used before. This cd is also available as a digital download. Air balloon, clouds, papers and sentimente, all were taken from this cd.

Jacki for my card I have use the Winnie in Wonderland download collection both images have not been used before and the style of card is new(ish)to me. The paper I used is from the same collection and I added sentiments,a large fussy bow with button a pearls to finish.
Nancy - For my card this week I have used Design Sheet 5 from the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection.
My "Use Something New" is a brand new cutting machine!
Tanya - For this week's make I've used one of the newer collections called Summertime CD which you can get here and I've created a card using some of the flowers which I resized in Craft Artist in three sizes and then cut out and layered them over one another.  The papers are also from the collection, as is the sentiment, which had been black and white chalkboard effect but I recoloured it to co-ordinate with the papers used.
Great makes from the DT and I’m sure you will agree that we have some great ideas for you this week!

So let’s see what the design team have made for us….this week they have all given you some 'monochromatic' inspiration...

Jacki : For my card I have made my usual 8x8" card blank and as it's a Monochrome theme I thought I would challenge myself and go red as it's one colour I struggle to blend and colour with. I used the papers and image and sentiment from the Winnie in Wonderland Collection....
Tanya This week I've grabbed a bunch of different shades of blue gel pens and coloured up one of the pretty butterfly sheets from the adult colouring collection called Colour Therapy Florabunda and then added glitter to the centres of the flowers and a few dots of Liquid Pearls in baby blue here and there. Hope you like it. The sentiment is from the Eden Collection.
Jane P- This week I chose an image from the Winnie in Wonderland Collection and layered him on papers from the same collection.
Gail - For this weeks challenge I've gone for some doodling in one of the fabulous Colouring Pages. This page is from Colouring Page Bundle 10, available as an instant download here.
Anjie - I have used the lush butterfly from the Little Kingdom collection. I used a honeycomb stencil and some distress inks to create the background and added a squiggly line with a black pen. I then used the same distress inks to colour the butterfly. I put the background on at an angle to draw the eye in more. I curled the wings of the butterfly and glued in place just on the body. More info and details on my blog.
Julie - I have made a fairly simple card this week using one of the beautiful new mermaids from Meribelle Mermaid in shades of Blue & Grey.
Lori - for my make this week, I created a very CAS design using Winston Bear in shades of brown - he's so darn cute! You can find the full collection HERE.
Jane S – Do you think I’ve used enough green!!! LOL What a fabulous image this is, one of my faves, and her name is ODDELLA BOW. She has some awesome sisters too and you can find them all HERE. The paper is from DOLLIE DAYDREAM GOES EAST. Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Monica.-For this challenge I used one of the lovely mermaids included in Meribelle Mermaids Craft Stamps Bundle. To colour it, I used Spectrum Noir warm grey family. Papers are from Dollie Daydream Goes East Collection. Fishes and sentiment are from Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles 
Collection....
Nancy - For my monochromatic card I used Design Sheet 3 from the sweet Winston Collection. I fussy cut an extra butterfly and flower, and popped them up to add some dimension.

And for a final tiny touch, I added the mailman owl from Twiggy & Toots Owls Collection.
Jane S – Go Karter GO!!!! And that’s what I have used on my card this week, the fab GO KARTER that I have duplicated, re-sized and merged to create a race! He is also available as part of the wonderful WORK AND PLAY 2 collection.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx

So let’s see what the design team have made for us….
Julie - I am not usually one to use multiple papers, so I decided to find a layout sketch for my card to help me and I am really pleased with the outcome. I have used Dandelion Days from the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection coloured with Copics.
Nancy: For my card I used items from the Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles Collection.
I used the pre-coloured crab, the fun sentiment, and two papers! 
Isn't that fella cute?
Jacki : for my card I have made my usual 8x8 card with papers from the Winnie starfish and sandcastles collection I distressed and inked the edges with distress inks.  The image is from the Meribelle digi collection which I have coloured with polychromos, luminace and pablo pencils then I added the cutie creatures again from the Starfish and sandcastles collection.  I then made a couple of strips of washi from the papers too and added to the image
Monica.- The beauty of Lemonade Fizz Collection papers was just perfect for this challenge. The 
butterflies, rolled flowers and sentiment are also from that collection.
Fiki-on my card I use image Dancing queen and sentiment  from Winnie Fruit Punch Collection. Papers are from Starfish/Sandcastles collection.
Jane P. - This week I used elements and papers from the Winnie in Wonderland Big Kahuna CD.   Three different papers on the base card and a background paper from the Designer sheet collection.  I colored the Queen of Hearts with Copics.
AnjieI used an image and some papers from the fabulous Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection, and the sign post and beach ball stamps from the Oceania clear stamp set. I printed the palm trees onto watercolour card and coloured them with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. I then stamped the sign post onto two of the distressed wood papers and made a wooden effect sign post. I then stamped the ball onto different papers and paper pieced it to create a coloured ball.
Tanya - So I thought I'd make a start on my Christmas cards and so have used the wonderful Picknix 3 Nordic Winter Collection, just because I adore the vintage looking Father Christmas on the collection.  I've made a one layer card and then printed out some of the elements from the collection to add some dimension.  The inside is decorated too. More details on my blog.
Jane S – Hello! This week I have used some of the delicious papers from the DOLLIE DAYDREAM GOES EAST BUNDLE (one of my all-time faves) and scored and folded them to make some fans. I have also used one of the many gorgeous ladies that can be found in this collection too.  If you would like to purchase her individually she is available HERE. Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Gail - For this weeks challenge, I've used the delicious Winnie in Wonderland collection. Just love the colours Nikky used for this collection, Winnie in Wonderland is available as an instant download or on CD-ROM.
 Romina, It´s time a new challenge so I've made my card using the Dancing Queen digi,you can find here. She is so pretty.  I have coloured her with alcohol markers. This collection is amazing.  I've made by own background.  It was so much fun to create it.
