Good afternoon Bloggers, Liz here today.

I hope you have been enjoying the new collection from Meg's Garden, 'Vintage Journal' and today I am sharing with you my Journal.  You will see that it is still a 'work in progress', but could not wait to share ideas with you all.

My journal was so easy to put together, just add some little embellishments and die cuts and off you go.
I made this little keyhole with some shrink wrap I was playing around with and so suited the papers.
And a little heat embossing on my die cut suited the men in the picture.
Another page ready to go.

I will be cutting some cardstock to insert in between these pages so I can add the photos.  Once it is
complete I will add the hinges and brads and it will be complete.
I recently created a tin of cards for a 70th birthday and to include in the 'stash' I used some Rose Quartz papers to create 3 cards.

This is such a beautiful collection and can be used in many ways to create an array of beautiful cards.
I hope you have enjoyed todays journey and be sure to check out more of Meg's Garden Collection
Thanks for taking the time to look and until next time happy creating.   Liz

Fathers Day Card and Treasure Tree

Hello Bloggers,
Thanks for visiting today and what a day to visit, with new collection this month.  I was over the moon with it, as it is perfect timing here in the Southern Hemisphere being Fathers Day this Sunday.

Fathers Day Card

For this card I have used Megs Garden new collection of 'Time' and 'For the Gentleman' Ephemera, along with Megs Garden ribbons and metal embellishments.

Treasure Tree for Father

I have had this tree in my stash for some years and decided to create a 'little treasure' tree for Fathers Day.  I really love Megs Garden new Collections and decided to keep the theme going using 'Time' and 'For the Gentleman' Ephemera papers.

 and here are a few close ups to see how both collections work together.  I also used Pinecone Versa Ink which matches perfectly with the collections.  Meg's Garden also has wonderful embellishments such as this little glass message bottle and metal trinkets.

 Also Meg has some gorgeous ribbons and this navy double sided ribbon is perfect for masculine work.
I hope that you have enjoyed todays journey through Megs Garden new collection and thanks for taking the time in stopping by.  Until next time.....happy creating....Liz

Hello fellow crafters,

I hope you have enjoyed  and being inspired by our Design Team work this month, who have been showcasing Meg's Garden Collection of Watercolour in Blues.

Today I want to share with you my layout which has been created with the Paperpack in this wonderful collection.

 I have also picked out a couple of pictures and did some 'fussy' cutting and added some Dimensional Magic to make them pop off the page.  Here is a closer look.

I hope you have enjoyed  my little showcase today and don't forget to keep a look out for new Collection.

Thanks for taking the time to look and until next time.....Happy crafting....Liz

Yes it is me back again!!!   I know can't believe it myself.  Have been a busy little bumble bee.  :)

I loved doing Christmas in July, gave me a break from the normal.  I have also created this layout with traditions of Christmas.  Hope you like.
Sorry for the dull photo, but has been awful weather.  thanks for taking the time to look.  Until next time.....Liz


Hello Bloggers,

Over at Mystical this month their Cyber Crop was Christmas in July.  I decided to take up rituals,  and here is my layout.
These are my little sweeties with their ritual of decorating the tree.

Hello Bloggers,

Well here in the Southern Hemisphere we are starting to get into our winter months and there is nothing better than keeping warm, cardmaking and of course anything else  paper related.

I trust that you have been using Meg's Garden new collection 'Rose Quartz' and today I have created a layout using some of these beautiful papers, along with an 'everlasting' card.

Firstly the layout which I have named 'Congrats'.  I did some work on the background cardstock and then set to placing this beautiful paper around my photo.

Teamed with Meg's Garden Doiley, charms and amazing lace.
This flower lace, you would have to agree is so divine and a pleasure to use.  With all that now completed here is the finished layout.
Next, I have created an 'Everlasting' card using some of Meg's Garden beautiful collections, which work so well together.  I have tried my hand at making a short video to show the workings of the card and how it unfolds.  It is perfect for using up all your little pieces of 'leftovers'.  You do, however, have to keep your embellishments to a minimum and not too bulky.

Thanks for taking the time to look and don't forget to keep a look out for the next new collection.

Hello Bloggers,

Finally found some time to catch up on some scrapbooking, what with the weather being ideal, nice and cosy for scrapbooking.

Dusty Attic's Mood Board this month is gorgeous and just had to partake.  This is their mood board for May.

 I have created a layout for my granddaughter's album

 Thanks for taking the time to look.  Until next time  .....happy scrapping....Liz
