Shabby Chic Card

Shabby Chic Card

Hello everyone,
Leanne here to share with you my vintage shabby chic centre step card I created with the stunning Lavande paper collection. This collection of patterned papers is very feminine & perfect for any paper craft project.

Here I have distressed then inked the patterned paper with tea dye distress ink to create a vintage shabby chic look.
A handcrafted flower, a die-cut large leaf, punched out leaves & tiny flowers all created with the Lavande patterned papers adorn the centre panel.

Glimmer mist & gesso were splattered all over then diamantes were added for a touch of romance & bling.


 To start your paper craft projects with the new Lavande paper collection visit Meg's Garden online store. Also take a look at all the latest creations from the design team.

Until next time.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day & happy creating.

Old Times Book by Meredith Hilly

Hello everyone. I had a fun time using the Sherlock Journal Vol.ll papers. Recently at a garage sale I found some old hard cover books with beautiful gold gilded covers. The actual book pages and binding was damaged. So I removed the pages and replaced them with the Sherlock papers.

I cut the paper to fit inside the book and then distressed the edges to make them look worn. Using a walnut stain ink and then Versa Colour 171 Pinecone on the paper edges to achieve an aged look. 
The binding of the book was to far gone to repair so I found some matching card stock. Using gold embossing and stamping it with a similar pattern I matched the rest of the book.

I attached a clip onto the top of the book binding with which I hung a key on.

Most of the pages I fussy cut out to embellish the book pages with.

The old hard covered books use to have there own ribbon book marks sew into the binding.
I was able to keep this one and use it.

My good old Guinea fowl donated a lovely feather to be used with the metal quill on the page.

This book is the perfect size for a small keepsake album. Now you can go find some hard bound covers of unloved books and transform them with Megs papers into a classy project.
 Thanks for having a look at my latest creation.

Amazing You ~ Lavande Range

Hello Mary here today sharing with you my third layout documenting my Granddaughters Graduation using the Beautiful Lavande Range.
Once again I have kept the layout clean lines and simple

Amazing You

a closer look

For this layout I used the 12" x 4" strip that comes with the 12 x 12 papers to add as a interest behind my photo. I cut the strip into smaller strips and then I used a paint brush to add gesso around the edges to give definition . Usually I swipe gesso over the whole area and wipe back, but because I did not want the pattern dulled, this time I used the paint brush.
I added a little stamp in two of the corners, the soft mauve ribbon to add flow and then draped the  pearl trim and anchored it with a flower gem. Above my title I added the diamante gem.

Thank you for calling by. I hope you take the time to visit Megs Store , you won't be disappointed with all the gorgeous products to tempt you and also you will get lots of inspiration here on the blog from the DT's amazing creations
Until next time

Cards and Memory Pocket by Brenda Caldow

Hello crafty friends and welcome to the Meg's Garden Blog, Brenda here with you today to share my three cards and a memory pocket that I have made using the very beautiful Lavande paper range. 
This range is just beautiful but I love any patterned papers that have the hints of Lavender/purple on them. Purples are my favorite colour. 

The beautiful butterfly was fussy cut from the patterned papers and I used a punch for the smaller ones. I then inked the edges of them with a medium brown ink. Over a piece of plain cardstock I placed some Lavender Mesh Ribbon. These are great ribbons for all your craft projects and come in 8 different colours. 

Once again I have created my card with cutting from the papers the beautiful flowers and placed it on some purple/blue pearl paper. I also used some of the same paper to run across the middle of my card. I punched our of the patterned papers a lace strip which I placed on top and then run some pearls through the middle. Once this was done I then razed the my fussy cut flower strip on some cardboard to raze it up. Beside this I place a beautiful Aubergine and White Apple Blossom Flower and used a rubon Love word. Around the outside of the card I lightly inked and then used a journal pen to do some stitching. 

For this Birthday card I fussy cut the beautifully elegant lady form the patterned papers. She was placed over the top of some feathers as I felt they matched in well with her stunning hat. In the corner of the card I placed a Vintage Trinket Filigree Flower and them a lovely pink and green paper flower. All three I placed a large glass bling and then some small ones in each of the corners. 

Now it's time to share with you my Pocket Memory envelope. I have made a few of these now since my mum passed away. The doctor thought if I wrote things down that I wanted to talk to my mum about. It didn't matter if it was something new, past or just a feeling that it might help me with my healing process. I have continued it and its a way for my many thoughts to be placed somewhere. 
When this was suggested to me I decided since my mum loved my craft projects I would decorate my envelopes and write my thoughts on some tags. These are my latest ones. 

I have used the beautiful patterned papers on my back ground and to place my write up on the back. I do that on each one so it is there for my boys one day. The beautiful period lady I fussy cut from the papers and razed her up a little. I then used the beautiful Green Tara Fantasy Blooms - Lavender along with a strip of bling.

I fussy cut some tags for me to write my personal messages on to place the the pocket. As I write my thoughts on them I will fussy cut more and add them in. 

I hope you have enjoyed popping into Meg"s Garden and looking at my latest creations. If you keep scrolling down you we see so many more wonderful designs from the other Design Team members. 
Also remember that everything we use is in the Meg's Garden Store along with much more. 
Happy Crafting.
