Hello Mary here again. I couldn't resist creating another layout with the New Parisian Gardens Range, I just love this range so much and wanted to create a layout with one of the ideas I had when looking through my DT goodies Meg had sent me.

My idea came from when I saw the envelope image on the Cut and Create Sheet.

I decided to cut around the opening with my Kraft Knife to create a opening to keep a Newspaper cutting about my Mother and Fathers wedding. Now it has a place to live , is safe and tells the story of my page.

I fussy cut another image from the cut and create sheet  of the music book image to place my photo on .  The fancy oval frame houses the beginning of my bouquet of flowers, containing the lovely lemon flowers and the gorgeous glass flower . I have sat the word Dreams , cut from the cut and create sheet and shaded with mauve ink amongst the bouquet , along with some pearl trim lace and muslin . A mauve ribbon ties it altogether . To the side sits a gold dragonfly charm.

Everything besides the "happy" word chippy , that I have embossed in mauve can be found at  Megs Store
Thank You for calling by. I looking forward to creating some more projects with this range and I hope you are inspred to do the same.
Until next time
Happy Creating

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.


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.

Hello Mary here to share a layout with the beautiful new range Parisian Gardens .
Oh my , when I opened the box I was in heaven &  literally could not wait to create with it. As I looked at each of the beautiful pages , I had ideas running through my head.
I did sit down and create a page that afternoon and busting to create more projects with this range when I get home from holidays.

Once again I have kept my layout quite simple , as the papers are so beautiful , they don't need a lot of embellishment I feel.

I have fussy cut the music/ script/bird piece from the images on the cut and create sheet and inked it slightly with a blue shade. I made a tag from the image of the beautiful lady on the cut and create sheet  and embellished it with the gold butterfly charm , rosette and vintage trinket and lace
The Word Cherish I have used as my title and cut it from the cut and create sheet.
The only product not from Megs Garden is the Circle Chippy, all other products I have used you can find in Megs Store
Until next time
Happy Creating

Ribbon and Roses

Roses, Ribbon, butterflies and a Pretty Lady


Roses, ribbon, a gorgeous butterfly and a pretty lady.  This is definitely a card for the Romantic female who loves vintage.

Hi Everyone, Barbara here from Meg’s Garden Design Team.  Now that Christmas is behind us, it’s time to venture back into the craftroom for some creativity.
I began this card with a piece of  heavy duty white cardstock.  I sponged the edges of all the pieces before layering them onto the card base.  The butterfly is fussy cut from one of Meg’s ‘Ephemera cut and Create pages,’ and also edge sponged for a neat finish.
Above is a closer view and the finished inside of the card.  Again all edges were sponged before attaching to the card and another fussy cut butterfly to tie in with the card front.
If you would like to create similar cards to mine, pop over to Meg’s Garden and browse the pretty paper collections, embellishments, ribbon and ephemera that are available. You won’t be disappointed and you will be amazed at the choices.
Until next time, happy papercrafting.

A pretty little letter box set by Meredith Hilly

Hello everyone. I would love to share with you a pretty little letter box I made.
I transformed a empty chocolate box into a useful gift for Christmas.
I am a bit old fashioned and still love to send and receive snail mail letters.

 The Spring Pastel papers from Megs Garden work really well with the silver and purple colours I chose. Don't be afraid to cut metal embellishments to suit you project. At the top of my box is the word Post Card and I cut a metal embellishment in half and stuck it either side of the words.

I added a little handle to the box which makes it easier to open.

I just love how these flowers pop when teamed with the silver bracken fern I spray painted.

Inside the letter box there are a few things I made for letter writing.

A pen with a little bottle of Dandelion seeds. The Dandelion seeds are there to remind you that you will always have time to write a letter.

When you open the little envelope I have placed some stamps ready for you to mail your letters.

I made three cards with envelopes to be used.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my letter box set.

I am absolutely loving this new collection.  It is called Parisian Gardens.  It is so versatile.  You can use it for modern looking pages/cards and also vintage.  Today I have this very vintage looking card to show you.  Everything you see on this card can all be bought from Meg's Garden.  Thank you for looking and Happy New Year.

Thank you for looking.  Karen x
