Rose Quartz Jar by Katrina Thompson

Hello everyone. It's great to coordinate your cards with a decorated jar, tin or box.
It is also a great gift to give. Today I have decorated a jar using the Rose Quartz collection
to coordinate with the cards I have made previously. Katrina x

I've selected a range of images from the Rose Quartz papercrafter pack together with
some muslin, paper flower petals and some ribbons/lace.
Wash and dry your bottles well. This one had an existing label which was easily covered by the muslin and papers. I glued the scalloped lace then tied the different trims around the neck.
Wrap a piece of green organza through the middle of the muslin. Secure both ends beneath
your centre papers so you don't have to run a line of glue or tape around the jar.
Create a flower by layering petals of coordinating colours. Glue it over the knot.
Back your word and feature image with a light weight cardstock so it is easier to
wrap and attach to the jar.
Attach the butterfly through the body so the wings can flutter free.
A great jar for mini marshmallows I think!!

Thankyou for looking and until next time, Happy Creating!! K x

Rose Quartz Mini Book by Meredith Hilly

Hello everyone. I have made a mini book using 12x12 pages using the beautiful papers from Megs garden.

I cut out the smaller pictures which I then made into tags to slide into the pockets. I tied gold, brown and green ribbon on different ones.

I used the beautiful light rose lace to frame pictures.

Gold leaves and gold edging was glued into the book to make it pretty like the old photos of the ladies in the book.

The tiny roses from Megs garden are terrific small detail element to any picture.

I like the metal flower with the green flower beside it as they are both not what you would call a traditional colour of flowers.

Using double sided 12x12 paper this is how the mini book is made.

Fold the paper  in half.

Then fold it in half the other way.

As the below picture shows cut a 5mm strip out of the page.

Fold the page up then back on itself to form a pocket.

Stick it down. one side has a pocket and the other is a page.

Turn over and do the same again.

Now you will have another pocket and a page the other side.

Using this technique you can make as many pages as you like and thread a piece of ribbon and lace to bind it into a book. This book can be made into a lot of different page set ups. So experiment a little.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my latest project. Thanks Megs for such pretty papers and embellishments. Keep up the great work.

Another Vintage Romantic Junk Journal for Meg's Garden

Hi everybody,

  I believe that most of you love Roses.Me too,so I was really happy to create my projects using beautiful collection "Rose Quartz" from Meg's Garden shop. I am coming today share with you my second project out of this collection.Again I choosed make a journal but before I will show some pics and video I would like to share with you what interesting facts about Roses I just found on internet.
I always enjoy read about vintage things but what I didn't know before,that Vintage Roses also exist :D
  One of those unique flowers is still alive. For more than 1000 years large rose bush covers the wall of the Cathedral of Hildesheim in Germany and other is rose fossil which was found in Colorado in the age of about 35 million years.That is really awesome,don't you think? 
  In nature, the genus Rosa has some 150 species spread throughout the Northern Hemisphere, from Holland to Mexico and North Africa. Although roses can come in a wide variety of colours, a “black rose” is not actually black. It is actually a very dark red.Different coloured roses are used to convey different feeling of passion and emotion. For instance,  red roses are used to show the people’s romance, love, and passion. However, if you want to show empathy, happiness, and familiar love, you can give yellow roses. To deliver the poetic romance and gentleness, delicate pink roses are used.....is lot of more amazing informations but  I believe it's enough for now.
  It's time to show and share with you my Romantic journal...

I made a video with this journal as well if you are interested...

I hope you found some inspiration.If you need some more ideas what to create,just go to Meg's blog

Forget me Not - Clean & Simple cards by Brenda Caldow

Hello and welcome to Meg's Garden and I hope you enjoy stopping in and seeing my latest creations with the beautiful Megs Garden products. I just love the Forget me Not range. They have the most beautiful flowers on them and have a feel of elegance. 
The three cards I would like to show you are clean and simple cards that I have created with mainly just the patterned papers. It shows the beauty of them. 

Card number 1 - 

The only extras to this card are the cardstock I created it on, the wooden flourish birdcage, liquid pearls and die I used to cut out the thank you. Everything else has been fussy cut from the papers.

Card number 2 - 

This time the only extra on the card is the die cut Thank You. The elegant lady and beautiful flowers have been fussy cut from the patterned papers. Clean and simple and a wonderful use to show off the beautiful papers. It is also a good way of using up anything left over from other creations.

Card number 3 - 

Again the only thing that isn't from the patterned papers is the die Thank You with everything else being fussy cut from the patterned papers. 

I hope you ave enjoyed looking at my cards and another look at the fussy cutting world I love. A way I find enhancing work by fussy cutting and also a way of using patterned papers you may have left over from other projects. 
Please keep scrolling down and have a look at the beautiful creations by the other very talented Design Team members. I hope we are all able to inspire you a little.
