Main launch design inspiration from the team:

Mags B

I love using PATTERNED PAPERS, and I have used PAPER PIECING as a change from just making backgrounds.  Also, it's easy to make two-for-one!

Card 2

Helen - digi stamp colored with Promarkers and using patterned papers because I find coloring relaxing and love putting designs together with different selections of patterned papers

My favorite is to use pre-colored digi stamps and pattern papers with sketches

One of my favorite techniques is painting, especially trying different methods of painting. For this card, the lasered wood veneer was painted gray and then I brushed on 2 top layers--1 of silver glitter paint and the 2nd in gold glitter paint. The panel to which that was adhered was painted differently by smearing some gray acrylic paint for the base layer and then dabbing dots or lines of the gold glitter paint and silver glitter paint.

I love creating articles using chalk paints and here I have used gold gliding  and stripping technique which is one of my favorite technique and I love it coz it a awesome visual effect on items. 

Thanks ladies for keeping your creative talents flowing into the new year! 

Excellent variety!
