SHADES OF GREEN - TEAPOT CARD WITH TIMELESS CARDS

Hello Everyone,

Here I am again today sharing with you Meg's Garden 'Shades of Green' Collection.  

I am using Pack No. 2  and the Cut & Create from this Collection and hope that you enjoy todays viewing.

Firstly, to match last month's tea cup card, I decided it make a Teapot Card, which was lots of fun putting together.



Here is the other side.

The card can be opened up for the sentiment to be written inside and then tied together with ribbon bows.

I then set about making some matching cards from this Collection.

And now for some close ups, showcasing the many varied embellishments from Meg's Garden.



Love these Doilys.



I hope you have enjoyed our journey today and that it has inspired you to start creating your own beautiful cards from Meg's Garden Collections.
Remember to check out the Labels to see all the items used on my cards.  Until next time.....enjoy your creating time.   Regards Liz.

NEW 'SHADES OF GREEN' COLLECTION - TEA CUP CARD WITH OTHERS

Hello fellow Creators,

Very excited to be showcasing Meg's Garden new Collection ' Shades of Green'. For these cards I used Meg's Garden Pack No. 1, together with the Cut & Create sheet.    This collection is amazing and I was inspired to  create something different for you today.

Firstly, I decided on this Tea Cup card which was a lot of fun putting together.  I altered the tag on the actual tea bag that is sitting in the cup, ideal for sending to a friend to share.


 Here is the card completely open.

and now it is closed and ready to send.

Next came a couple of cards using this lovely Collection ' Shades of Green'


Close ups for you showing the beautiful trims and metal embellishments.


Well that is all I have for you today.  I hope you have enjoyed our journey through Meg's Garden new Collection.   You can view more HERE.

Don't forget to check out the Labels, to see which items I have used.  Until next time....have fun creating and see you next month.....Regards Liz.

ARTastic March Challenge - Animals

Hello fellow Creators,

Today I am sharing with you the latest challenge over at ARTastic Blog.  This month they have inspiration from Luka Va and here it is. 

The criteria was to use animals in any form.  So here is my creation.   I used this postcard that my son had posted when he was overseas.  Such a story attached the short version was that he gave the postcard to someone in a taxi and asked them to post it for him.   Well a couple of months after his return, I did receive it, making it very special.

Thank you for taking the time to look.  Until next time...happy creating.   Liz.

NEW SHABBY CHIC BACKGROUNDS


Good afternoon Crafters,

Liz here today showcasing a couple of the new Meg's Garden Shabby Chic Collection.  Beautiful soft colours in this range and perfect for your creative needs.

As it has been sometime since creating a  layout for you, this is what I have chosen this month. The circle backing is from Meg's Garden and is so lovely and soft.  Teamed with this Shabby Chic collection sets it all off beautifully.


A close up of Meg's flowers and brass element, add that little bit of flair to the any layout.
The butterfly and little lavender are from the Shabby chic cutouts and here is a close up.

You will notice, no title or pics as yet, but I am sure I will have some lovely pics of my grand girls to slot in shortly. :)

Thank you for taking the time to look today and you can check out more of this lovely collection HERE.

Until next month......happy creating.....Liz

SECRET MYSTERY BOX & MINI JOURNAL with new PARIS CHIC COLLECTION

Hello Everyone,

Liz here today showing you the new PARIS CHIC COLLECTION.   I was lucky enough to be given the new Journal pack in this wonderful collection.

But first let me tempt you with a 'Secret' mystery box that I created to hold the mini journal using Paris Chic.

And Meg's Garden new Box Handle Arch and decorative lock.  Stunning items don't you think?? Then I was inspired to do a little Decoupage on the lid, with papers from Paris Chic and Vintage Beauties.

Now for a little side view and inside peek.


I made the little Journal from a couple of 12x12 album page inserts, then set about decorating my Journal.
Some special brass corners and metal hearts.


Meg's Garden lace and ribbon really set the Journal off.


Meg's Garden heart shaped doily and beautiful floral ribbon.
 You will notice that I used a little 'Inca Gold' in gold to edge a few of the cutouts, which gives a real vintage look to the pictures.

Finally a little fussy cutting of the flowers and here is the end.

I hope you have enjoyed our little visit through Meg's new Paris Chic Collection and be sure to check out more HERE.

Thanks for taking the time to look and until next time........happy creating. ....Love Liz.
