How to generate creative ideas and build your own websites? Any practices I can use?
I am really learning a ton of new stuff on webdesigning. However, I am a little bit worried. When I look at top designed websites, I ask myself if I will be able to build one of this myself. What do I need to do to succesfully apply the knowledge I learned from this treehouse in real life? Maybe after each stage TeamTreeHouse should offer us to complete a web site project. Please share me your suggesstions.

Go to websites you like and right-click inspect element. Open up your text editor and code side-by-side to understand what is going on in the code from the site that you like. Change it up. Modify. Customize. Get a bug. Cry. Fix and debug. Learn. Create some more. Do the happy dance
NOt my question but I love this answer I'm going 2 try this to.

I like the idea of a code challenge for a complete website. But maybe not after each stage. If say at the end of a complete module asking you to build something using your newly acquired skills would be good to test them out.
The resources you are learning will give you the skills necessary to build large websites, but like in the movie What About Bob - baby steps is what will get you there. Instead of looking for Treehouse to challenge you why not find a few friends that will give you a scenario and have you build or mock up a site. You can build it using workspaces I believe and if you run into questions or problems, ask about them here in the forum.
