In the Watercolour Garden ~ Smile

Hello Mary here today to share a layout using the "In the Watercolour Garden Range"
I created this layout for a challenge and Megs Garden paper and embellishments were just what I wanted to create with
.
SMILE


This was for a sketch challenge and I love the softness of Megs "In the Watercolour Garden" papers to go with the vintage photo's of my Grandmother , Aunts and a Uncle at my Eldest Brothers wedding.
I have torn the 4 x 12 inch paper that comes with the 12x12 papers to give it a irregular edge which I have inked and placed my photo's on . The Smile sentiment is my title and is from the Cut and Create page that always have the most gorgeous images. The flower cluster  with the beautiful velvet flowers and ribbon add to the vintage feel. The fleurs image I have used as my tag with journalling on the back and it just tucks up under the edge and lace . I finished the layout off with the beautiful flower die cut, which I just love.


Everything I have used to create this layout is from Megs Garden Shop 
Thank You for calling by , I hope you visit the shop to see how gorgeous this range is  and be inspired create with the beautiful papers and embellishments.
Happy Creating

If You could see yourself through my eyes ~ In The WaterColour Garden

Hello ! Mary here creating again with the Beautiful In The Watercolour Garden range.
This time I have used it to document my Daughters Hen Lunch for her up coming wedding.
The range is so pretty , just perfect for such a theme and for wedding layouts :)



I added some texture with a stencil and texture paste. The cluster is created with flowers from Megs store, Flower edged ribbon  and vine wire . At the side of my photo I have tucked the Love Ephemera from the cut and create sheet.


Some washi strips , little pearls scattered here and there and some stamping completed my layout.
Thank you for calling by, I recomment you visit Megs Store for the most gorgeous papers and embellishments

CHRISTMAS FRAME

hello friends
 have been playing in my craft room with the MEG'S
gorgeous Christmas papers 
 titled 
'Twinkling Christmas' 
to go with the theme I made a reverse canvas 
& added miniature fairy lights
It was fun creating something a little different...

I made the frame with texture paste through a stencil 
then painted with gesso & 
added some jacaranda blue mixed paint to highlight the texture 
fussy cut many elements from the ephemera sheets & papers & adhered them to chipboard to give them strength .. 
the Christmas trees are from my stash. 
Adhered the background paper & all trims then added the lights.

Flowers, flourishes, silver leaves & sparkles completed the scene

Take time to visit through the site & check out all the pretties available

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas ~ Twinkling Christmas

Hello Mary here today to share with you the rest of my cards I created with the Twinkling Christmas Card Pack ~ seriously made my  life so much easier to create my Christmas Cards with this gorgeous Card Pack.



How cute are the Christmas Fairies that I have fussy cut from the Twinkling Christmas Cut and Create Ephemera sheet.
For the card on the left I added the gold stars ( they come on a strip with a sticky backing you peel off to adhere to your project )
I then added the gold doily which I cut in half, the gold & cream holly leaves .
The card on the right I once again fussy cut the Christmas fairy added her amongst the baubles and ribbon pattern on the Paper . I added a extra bauble fussy cut from the Ephemera sheet raised it with a foam adhesive attached it with the gold star and gold pearl trim to the branches. To finish I added the large butterfly also fussy cut from the Ephemera Sheet ( so many gorgeous images to choose from )


Next fairy is in the more traditional Christmas colours of Red and Green. I made a tag to attach her to and fussy cut the Christmas Balls and little Christmas cluster of butterflies and ribbons attached to the tag behind the fairy.  A little gold stick on gem on the tag and Christmas Balls to finish off the card.


Another in the traditional colours of Christmas, with the fabulous image of the lady shopping in her magnificent clothes , what style ! I again created a tag with the red brick background and simply added some snowflaces and I created a sentiment with a clear pebble.


I simply added St Nicholas from the Ephemera Sheet and then added the gold and white holly leaves tucked in the branches fussy cut from the Ephemera Sheet... Card done


and finally I have layered the fussy cut images from the Ephemera Sheet, the bauble, Saint Nicholas and the gold leaf , I then added thin silver ribbon to the bauble tied in a bow at the top.
I hope I have inspired you to start creating your Christmas cards , with this beautiful pack and images to create with you will have them done in no time at all !
Happy Creating

A New York Christmas

Hello Mary here again to share some more Christmas with you.
Once again I am demonstrating how you can use PP that is not Christmas Pattern to create a Christmas layout .


 I have used the Watercolour In Blue PP for my background, but with the gorgeous Twinkling Christmas Ephemera , some stamping and texture paste I think it works perfectly well as a Christmas Layout.
Of course the Twinkling Christmas range of papers are just beautiful, but this time I opted for the Card Pack and after finishing my cards I wanted to use the gorgeous Ephemera I have left from the Twinkling Christmas Range , so using Megs papers that I still have in another range is how I worked around this.


I am really loving creating with the beautiful Ephemera  and Card pack.
You can preview the beautiful Twinkling Christmas Range here on YouTube . This Range really does make creating cards and Christmas layouts, tags etc so easy. I've placed Megs little silver stars and angel to my cluster to add more Christmas . You can order the stars and angels in Megs Bundle of Goodies

A Twinkling Christmas Ephemera Sheets 




Told you the images are divine. Pop over to Megs Store for all your Christmas needs
I still have some cards to share in another post. Until then
Happy Creating
