It’s Sonia’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your fabulous creations over the past month. It has been a great pleasure to have you along with us!

Sonia made these fabulous Earring Holders by punching CDs with the Cropadile Big Bite and using Lifestyle Crafts Circles Dies to line them with pattern paper. She used the Spellbinders Rose Creations dies to create the handmade foam roses and rosebuds .


Andrea used some of her favorite circular dies, Tim Holtz’s Picture Wheel and Seth Apter’s Splatter Proof, to create her colorful collage.


Anna-Karin loves circles and made a card layering lots of different types of circles. It was inspired by Wendy Vecchi’s Circle Collage Background stamp and the star of the card is one of Dina Wakley’s Scribbly Small Birdies.


Barbara has created an abstract canvas with  new  Seth Apter’s dies: Broken maze and Steering wheel. To  create her background she used various kind of acrylic paints: Paper Artsy Fresco Paints, Ranger Distress Paints and Ranger Dylusions Paints.


Cathie created a shabby chic card using the Tim Holtz Caged Bird die and My Favorite Things Zig Zag Circles.  She used a combination of soft colors with Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass Distress paints, crayons and inks.


Emma was inspired to create a layout telling the story of a family circle. She used Seth Apter’s Shield die to create the frames for her Paper Doll family and layered them over a textural background created using the Tim Holtz Screwed Layering Stencil and coloured with Distress Paints.


Kath created a circle themed background using Picket Fence Distress Crayon as a resist, Distress Oxide Inks and various circle stamps as a backdrop for her bouquet of Illustrated Garden Flowers


Lols is going around in circles with Seth Apter Robo Rings and a Tim Holtz Rings Background Stamp. She used a fabulous selection of Distress Oxide Inks for the background before white heat embossing the circle design.


Macarena is crazy about circles and leaves so she mixed up both elements and used Tim Holtz RINGS stamp and Penny Black LIVELY die in a negative way. She also got addicted to Distress Oxides so she used them for backgroungs.


Maura made lots of circles in her art journal with Seth Apter’s Turnaround stamps, Spellbinders Robo Ring die, Impression Obsession Password II by Seth, and is spinning from all the choices.


Meihsia was inspired to make a mixed media tag with a clock using Tim Holtz Sizzix Big Die Tick Tock and Tim Holtz Ink Distress Stain.


Sandra loves circles and used the new Circular Lace stencil from the new Simon Says Stamp Cherished release along with a background made with Distress Oxides

Zoey used a mix of Distress Oxide and Distress Crayons to create this tag full of circles…


So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
