So, let's see what the Design Team have made for us today...

Nikky...I want to share a journal I made which is using the Creative Doodles collection here... I used an A5 piece of greyboard and then tore other random pages and layered them all slightly smaller. In the pic it looks like one page but it's actually 4 different ones made from different card and paper.


 The sheet in the middle is actually pleated rice paper although you cant really see it on the photo as there's a lot going on. I used the stamps and matching card packs and just cut and stamped a few pieces out, finishing off with the Alphabet stencil and stamp set which I just adore.
Products I used were:
Creative Doodles Collection


Corry This  time I've made a butterfly card.  I used distress inks for the background. I stamped the flowers and the hearts on the card and blended the flowers with chlorine....
After I stamped I have colored the butterflies.
I cut them out and glued them on the card
I placed some glitter in the heart of the flowers

the product I've used are

Jane - For my make this time I have created a Spanish/flamenco dancer using some of the fabulous Polkadoodles stamps and stencils.
Polkadoodles Goodies Used


Terry: I have created a card with using inks with all kind of colors for the background, I stamped some fabulous flowers from the Stampset Brighter With You on top of my background and used different kinds of small stamps from the set Every Wish in the World to fill up the blanks in between the flowers. Then I colored  the whole card with purple acrylic paint. I uncovered the flowers and played some more with white splatters acrylic paint and the Graph'It White Pen. Last but not least I placed the sentiment from the Clearstamp set Hello Friend....
I worked with the following Polkadoodles products:



Gorgeous projects as always! Thanks team, you're awesome!

The Winners of our last challenge are at the bottom of this post...

So let's see what loveliness the Design Team have made for us this month...

Corry This time I have made a card with this lovely stamp Pip Monster Costume Onesie


For the background I have used distress ink and sprinkled it with water. After that I used delicate doodles-clear-stamp on the background and colored the Pip monster with zig markers.

The Polkadoodles products that I worked with are
pip-monster-costume-onesie
delicate-doodles-clear-stamp

Jane - I have created a card with one of the fabulous new stencils and silhouette stamps. I have used a really textured watercolour paper and inked with Distress Oxides.

Polkadoodles Goodies Used:
Graceful Flower Girl 2 Polymer Stamps
Graceful Flower Girl 3 Polymer Stamps
Magical Corner Polymer Stamps
Textures Galore Polymer Stamps
Magical Grasses Stencil
Ribbon/Gift Frames & Corners Die Set

Terry: I have created a simple card this time with lots of fabulous clearstamp sets from Polkadoodles, love the flowers and colored them with aquacolors. The flower on the bottom of the card has been curled up to give it a 3D effect. After I stamped the flowers, I stamped some hearts on the card and colored them with half the waterpaint and with the Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir Last but not least I placed the sentiment.



The Polkadoodles products that I worked with are:
Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens
Perfect Wishes Clear Stamp Set
Pretty Perfect Clear Stamp Set
Every Wish in the World Clear Stamp Set

Lou Sims: I have made a mini art book using lots of elements from the Creative Doodles Collection coloured with water colour acrylic inks ...

Front cover

Book opened



Polkadoodles products used:
Creative Doodles Collection
Colour Me card stock complete collection
Textures Galore Stamp Set
Funky Alphabet A5 clear stamp set
Making Faces stamp set
Daler Rowney Acrylic inks

Nikky...I wanted to share with you this super cute little A6 pocket book thingy I made using products from our new Making Faces collection which is part of my new Foundations range... 
 There's a closure which is held with magnets I inserted under the front cover so it has that really satisfying magnetic snap - am I the only one who cant stop closing that kind of thing? lol, open, close, open, close, open close....
The weird shaped stripey closure arm with the flower attached is actually just one of the doodles cut straight from the cardstock sheet (bottom right) - the card is 350gsm so really nice and heavy and perfect for book making...
 I inked up the inside with a mixture of different inkpads and followed the doodle lines on the same sheet to create 2 curved pockets which I glued in. I fussy cut some of the extra bits on the sheet to make embellies and just glued those in after I inked them up a bit...
 ...and then finally I Stamped the girls face and assembled the body clothes and doodled some curly hair onto her. I adore those specs, so cool and funky! I really love this little book it only took about an hour to make but there's something about it I really love, probably the stripes because I'm a spotty stripey girl (as my wardrobe will tell you).
I used:

Gorgeous projects as always! Thanks team, you're awesome!

First I worked the stones with alcohol ink and stamps.
Then I worked a strip of paper with distress ink and stencils.
I stamped the strip with different stamps, and blended some part with chlorine.
Last but not least, I creased the strip of paper to the site of the dominoes, folded the strip and glued it on the dominoes. And I also attached a ribbon to close it.

Jan For my project this week I decided to make a little start on my journal, I have used paints and distress inks and lots of goodies from Polkadoodles

Polkadoodles Goodies used

Jane - As Easter is not too far away I have decorated a canvas panel to celebrate. I have used flower and bunny stamps, stencils and coloured with watercolours!

Essential Polkadoodles Shopping
TerryI made a canvas for your inspiraton. I worked on the background with various types of stamps and started with Gesso, then I used Distress Oxide. I played with a stencil and stamped some of the georgous flowers from the new stampsets from Polkadoodles, they are really lush. I cut the flowers and colored them with Distress oxide and then colored 2 different butterflies. Then I played with where I wanted to put them on the canvas. I stamped the sides and edges of the canvas with leaves and stamped some hearts onto the canvas. Last but not least I placed a sentiment onto it. That is how is should be.....Enjoy the little moments...
