'LOVE' PARISIAN GARDENS COLLECTION

Hello Bloggers,

As the year comes to an end, we have a New Collection to inspire you for the New Year.

I am sure you will agree it is a wonderful collection, with lovely soft colours, all matching beautifully with the 'Cut and Create' Sheets.

LOVE LAYOUT 

For this layout, I have used 2 sheets of the 'Parisian' collection, with some cut outs from the 'Cut and Create' sheets.

The  'diamond' shapes are cut from the Parisian papers and as you can see all match perfectly on the doiley base.  Ribbons, flowers, fibres and metal from Meg's Garden.


Thanks for taking the time to look and hope you have fun in the New Year creating with Meg's Garden new range Parisian Gardens Collection.  Until next time....happy scrapping....Liz.

SPRING PASTEL COLLECTION

Hello Bloggers,

Well there is such a lot happening at home and at Meg's Garden.  We have new members on our Design Team and their work is amazing with lots to inspire and showcase Meg's new collections.

Today for you I am showcasing the new 'Spring Pastel Collection'.  You may remember last month that I completed a Card Box?  Well here today are the cards I have created to place inside the box.  I hope you agree that this makes a lovely present for a special friend.

This Spring collection is amazing, with suiting various  colours of cardstock .

With this frame, I reworked an old plastic frame, that I am sure we all have in our stash somewhere :)
A bit of gesso and some embossing powder and then Stayz On  stamping and there we have it....a new frame to suit.


A couple of Meg's Garden embellishments, lace and some fussy cutting from the 'Cut and Create' range here.


With this final card, ribbon and string pearls to finish off this card.

I hope that you have be inspired here and take a closer look at the Spring Collection HERE.  Until next time ....happy creating   and hope you can have some time to create of the Christmas break.  I wish you all a happy Christmas.  Liz.

SPRING PASTELS COLLECTION - CARD BOX

Hello Bloggers,

Today I would like to share with you Meg's Garden new collection 'Spring Pastels'.  It is a wonderful range with so many soft pastels all matching, teamed with the Create and Cut pages.


SPRING PASTELS CARD BOX 
I was so taken with this range, I decided to make a little card box to give as a present.  These are so easy to make and with the right papers and embellishments makes an idea gift.

I had so much fun placing the embellishments around the box.
As you can see the front has an acetate window to showcase a special card.
 I have incorporated a card to show how all things match perfectly.
Well thank you for taking the time to look and be sure to keep a look out next month for more matching cards.  Have a great month creating and until next time.....happy scrapping.....love Liz

VINTAGE JOURNAL PAPERS PAPERCRAFTER AND ROSE QUARTZ

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.


VINTAGE JOURNAL
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.
ROSE QUARTZ SYMPATHY CARDS
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
