XMAS @ MEG'S GARDEN - ASSORTED COLOURWAYS

Well yes it is nearly that time of the year!!!!  Time to get your xmas card stash happening.  To help you along the way.  I have created a few cards in different tones, all using the gorgeous collections from Meg's Garden Christmas.

Here I have used pink and blue colourways and here are a couple of close ups.


So with that stash complete, I set about creating some more cards to give as gifts.  Meg's Garden Christmas Collections 'cut and creates' work so well for creating  beautiful xmas cards.

The colourways of red and green are very traditional and are so striking don't you think??  Set off by the beautiful trims from Meg's Garden.

Hopefully I have inspired you to commence your xmas stash for this year and to view all the trims and  papers please click  HERE.

Be sure to come back soon and see all the other lovely creations from the Design Team.. Until next time  happy creating....Love Liz

SHERLOCK III - A NEW CASE - SPECIALITY CD CASE

Hello Bloggers,

Liz here with you today, showcasing Meg's Sherlock III - A New Case Collection.

I have created a CD Case to give as a gift.   I have left some spots to insert photos and or journalling.
These CD cases are a lot of fun to create and quite easy to make as well, which is a bonus. :)


 This is the back view.

 On thing to remember is not use to thick embellishments, so it lends itself to doing some fussy cutting from this Collection and there is an array to choose from.

 A bit of stamping on the kraft card to tie it altogether.


Have I mentioned that I do love to fussy cut these days, as I find it very relaxing and gives me time to think where I will place them too.

Well that is all for today and I hope you have enjoyed our little journey and if you would like to see more of this amazing Collection, you can find more HERE.

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.

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'

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
