Hello everyone,

I would like to share with you a card I have created using an image from the Vintage Journal Cards.  This is a new collection of papers available from Meg's Garden Paper Inspiration online store.

This is an elegant but simple card to create using the colours from this pretty image of red, black and white. I also added a touch of gold for a hint of glamour. A die cut shape, lace, a large white flower, pearl trim and gold fern leaves adorn this card.
Until next time.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
I hope you have a wonderful day & happy creating.

Hello everyone,

Today I would like to share with you a card that I have created with the latest release from Meg's Garden Paper Inspiration online store, Vintage Journals cards.

There is a wonderful range of vintage images in this collection, suitable for all styles of paper craft.


I chose this beautiful image to create my blue and white card.
This card has lots of layers using some background paper from Meg's Garden plus plain and coloured card stock. I have used a paper distressing tool, paper punches, an embossing folder and distress ink to add texture and interest to the paper pieces. I also added lace, pearl trim, ribbon, some glitter glue and a blue rose to embellish my card.
Until next time.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day & happy creating.

Hello everyone & welcome

Today I would like to share with you two cards that I have created using the French Roses paper collection. Available to purchase from Meg's garden online store. 

To create this card I have distressed then inked the background sheet and the cut & create sheets before layering each piece to my card base.
A little simple fussy cutting, some flowers, rhinestones, lace & glitter glue are added to embellish this card.
A feminine card in soft tones of pink, cream and touches of brown & green.
For this card a simple colour scheme of mauve, cream a little black & a touch of gold. All papers have been distressed & inked to create a vintage style card.
To make this card lace was fixed in place to the background sheet. I then adhered this piece to the mauve cardstock.  The images were adhered to black card which was inked with gold. A bow, a large paper rose and some self-adhesive pearls were added to finish this simple elegant card.
Until next time.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day & happy creating.

Hello everyone & welcome,

I have 3 very pretty cards that I would love to share with you today. The patterned papers I have used are from Meg's Garden online store. This set of papers is from the French Roses collection.
Each background paper and the images from the cut & create sheets were selected to match each cards colour tones of either soft pinks or creams. Embellishments of flowers, lace and ribbon in the same soft pastel shades were used to decorate each card. For that final touch of glamour I added pearls & rhinestones. Each card was easy to create with some simple fussy cutting, layering, distressing and inking.





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