Hello everyone,
Wishing you all a Happy & Creative New Year.

What a lovely way to start the New Year than with this gorgeous new paper collection called French Roses. This very pretty feminine shabby chic paper set is A4 in size with 12 background sheets and 6 cut & create image sheets. Just perfect for any paper crafter.
I have created two simple cards with lots of layers.
My first card I thought would make a lovely sympathy card.
 I have distressed & inked my background paper before adding to my card blank. Next I cut out, then distressed & inked these beautiful images & wording from the cut & create sheets. Each of the images & wording were fixed in place using 3D foam tape.
I added touches of stickles glitter glue to each of the images.

 For my next card I have torn, then inked the background papers before adhering in place. I love these images, they are so pretty and compliment each other well.
 I added lace, a pink satin bow, rhinestones, and glitter glue to finish.
Both of these cards were quick and easy to create. Be sure to stop by Meg's Garden online store for these pretty paper & so much more.

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

Hello everyone & welcome!

Today I would love to share with you a project I created for Meg's Garden Blog.
A decorative door hanger using A4 watercolour paper and the Vintage Journal cards series: called Vintage flowers. 

I so love this pretty image and the delicate shades of pink.
My hanger was created from scratch. Firstly I traced around a door hanger shape onto stiff cardboard & cut
out. I traced this shape onto the A4 watercolour paper.  This was then cut out & inked in a soft brown shade before being adhered onto the cardboard door hanger shape.
Layers of lace, tulle and die cut shapes were added. A cluster of pink roses & rose buds and leaves adorn the corner of the image. To finish I added some glitter glue & pearls. A gorgeous project to create. My door hanger now sits on a cupboard door in my craft. 
Stop by Meg's Garden online store for all of these goodies and create your very own unique door hanger.

Until next time.

Hello everyone and welcome,

Today I would love to share a Meg's Garden post with you.
I have decorated the cover of a spiral note book using A4 watercolour paper and this lovely image from the vintage ladies journal card series.


 I have distressed and inked the papers. A paper doily and a gold metal charm were added to the top right hand corner.
Hand dyed lace and nylon lace were added. Plus a cluster of paper flowers and leaves.
To finish I added some self-adhesive pearls and glitter glue. This was a quick and easy project and such a lovely way to decorate a plain note pad.
Stop by Meg's Garden online store for all of your pretty papers and supplies.

Until next time.

Hello everyone & welcome,

Today I have a Christmas card that I would love to share with you.

To create this card I started with a 21x21cm piece of white cardstock. Fold & score in half to create a card base.  I then trimmed some of the gold leaf background paper, then added this to the card base. Lace and gold trim were added next. My cut out image was matted to brown card stock before adhering in place. I have fixed the Merry Christmas to brown cardstock, then cut around this to create a shadow effect before adhering in place with 3D foam tape.
I created a large and a small organza bow. I then fixed these to the image. A white flower, a green leaf, gold stamens and gold pearls were added to finish this card.
Background paper: Ivory with gold leaves

An Elegant Christmas Journal cards #2
Words & Phrases sheet (sorry no picture)

I would like to wish everyone A Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year.

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

Hello everyone & welcome.

Today I would love to share with you a Christmas card I have created for Meg's Garden Blog.
I have used the new Christmas collection of papers that are now available in Meg's Garden online store.

What a perfect why to celebrate Christmas by sending Love & Joy, beautiful flowers and lots of holly to loved ones this Festive season.
For this card I have distressed and inked the background paper using gold ink.
Next I fussy cut this floral image from the watercolour wreath sheet. I adhered this using 3D foam tape. To add further detail I added some holly sprigs from the transparency sheet. One dot of glue is all that was needed to fix the holly cut outs in place. I added my sentiment and the gold bead trim. A touch a glitter and some pearls to finish.

Watercolour wreaths
Back ground paper: Deep cream with snowflakes


Transparency sheet of Holly.

Until next time.
