The Best and Most Beautiful Things in the World Cannot be seen or even Touched, They Must be felt with the Heart ~ Shades of Green

Hello Mary here again to share a layout using the Shades of Green range that will go in the album next to the last layout I shared as a kind of double page spread.
Once again I used two of the A4 Shades of Green Papers to create my 12 x 12 page.

So I just overlap my two A4 Pages to create a 12 x 12 size.

In my cluster I have used paper roses, pearl trim, paper leaves , a charm key and mesh ribbon, The Love word is cut from the cut and create sheet and I added a filigree strip with a enamel dot. In opposite corners of my photo I placed the brass corner drop with loop .

I have a strip of lace running down my page and for texture used a stencil and texture paste and added colour with my paints, I then added some light stamping

Thanks so much for calling by .
Don't forget to pop over to Megs Store for all your supplies
Happy Creating

Hello fellow crafters,

Mary here today to share another layout for my Daughters wedding album using the Shades of Green Range.
The Perfect Day ~ it really was

Once again I have created a 12 x 12 page by using a piece of cardstock to adhere the A4 shades of green pattern paper to.

I recently purchased the Oval Die cut which comes with two dies, this is the large, but the small is also a good size, perfect for framing your photo. On the opposides of my page I added the Screen Print die in mint green  to add a touch of colour and a decorative element to my page.

I created a cluster in the corner of the photo with a filigree Flower placed a paper flower and leaf on the top , attached a charm heart with pearl trim and also placed a clear gem ball and 3 pastel enamel dots, all placed on a ribbon of lace.In the opposite corner I placed the Filigree stip with the Honey Bee charm.

I used the satin edged sheer ribbon to tie a bow so to me it almost looks like a book that you can open . For texture I added the flower pattern in each corner through a stencil with texture paste and coloured with distress oxide inks . The Happiness chippy was given to me by my friend Bec and I also coloured it with Distress Oxide.
Thank You so much for calling by, I hope I have inspired you to pop over to Megs Store and get yourself some gorgeous product to create your memories with.
Happy Creating

A card for Mother's Day

Hello everyone & welcome!
I have created a feminine card using the patterned papers & ephemera sheets from the Shades of Green collection.
 I have distressed the edges of each of my patterned papers then inked the edges with Tim Holtz's distress ink: old paper.

This is also the first time that I have used foamiran to create flowers. I die cut the foam using the Roses frilled edge die. I coloured the die cut foam pieces with Tim Holtz's distress crayons before layering each piece to form my flowers. Stamens were added to the centre of each flower.
Until next time.
Have a wonderful day & happy creating.

Happy Mothers Day by Meredith Hilly

With mothers day coming I used "Shades of Green "papers to make my mum a present.
I made a folder to hold four cards for her to use.
This is the cover of the folder.
I decorated the back of the folder with Megs wild flower dies.

This is the inside of the folder where you can see the four cards. I have slipped the envelopes for the cards behind them.

This is one of the four cards. I stamped inside each one.

When the cards are removed this is what you see.

Thanks for looking at my project. I wish everyone a happy mothers day.
