"A Beautiful Christening for Blake" By Suzanne Crowther

Hi everyone Suzanne here to share a layout with you today. I have already made two mini books with this paper it is absolutely beautiful to work with.

A Beautiful Christening for Blake

On this layout I used 1 sheet white card stock and 1 page from the kit the page was very pale and perfect for this project. I used a boarder punch and put an edge on 2 sides of the Butterfly Collection paper. I then sprayed some dye in blue and purple with also adding some glimmer mist and then dried it with a heat gun.

I melted the larger photo onto pale blue card stock then mounted the smaller photo with a darker blue and the butterfly collection paper. The great part was the paper matches the silk christening gown I know you may not see it in these photos but the beading along the chest has ivory/cream/and light blue.

 I then took some doily boarder found at Meg’s Garden and inked the edges I also cut a piece of the paper and used a punch to cut a design in the paper, I threaded ribbon through the cut paper and fitter the edge cut paper and the edge doily paper over lapping not quite centre if of centre when fitted I used 2 way tape and placed both photos on the page.

I had a piece of chippy I coloured it with metallic paint and added glitter. I fitted this to the top of the page adding a beautiful butterfly that I had edged in glitter, I then added a bow and a little dummy I had coloured then I added a bit of glitter to finish of the photos I put in a small glittered butterfly in the centre of them.  I fussy cut out the frame from the paper inked the edges and using 3d mounts fitter it over a baby rattle that I had painted and glittered I added a bow and some pretty flowers.

Fabulous by Dana Tatar - Forgotten Meadows Collection

Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a layout that I created with the stunning NEW Forgotten Meadows collection. I took this photo of my daughters on Easter.

I love the pink blooms and text on the Lazy Days patterned paper. I cut the floral design out from the top corner and pieced a background together with the remaining half of the Lazy Days paper and half of a Trips to the Village paper. I laid the coordinating Lazy Days 4x12" strip across the middle of the page to create a floral base for my photo and then used a stencil with whipped spackle on the edges of the layered papers to help hide the seam.

I added a pink blush to the background of this layout with Pan Pastels. I cut images from the Forgotten Meadows Cut and Create patterned paper and layered them under my photo. I framed the photo with the flowers I cut from the corner of the Lazy Days patterned paper and some roses from my stash. I finished the page with a ribbon bow and a rhinestone.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Folded gift card holder with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Meg's Garden monthly post.
This time I decided to make a folded gift card holder with Meg's Garden new delicious Forgotten Meadows collection.
First I made the cover with old recycled chipboards and wrapped them with a 12*12'' paper from the new collection. Then I made the fancy cover with heat embossed chipboard and Meg's Garden flowers, trinkets, lace and doily.
I added the trinket on the top of the frame and glued a charm bird over it.
All paper flowers were inked around the edges with brown distress ink and I added a hand cut  from other paper flowers over the basic paper on the cover.

And now for the inside of this gift card holder.
I glued another paper- this time from the journal kit as the size was a good fit over the wrapped cover. Then I added some stamped butterflies and a stamped sentiment - the same doily from the cover is seen here as it was folded to the half.
I made the right " book shaped" side with 4 printers papers, folded into accordion and arranged to the deep frame.
Then one single envelope from the kit was glued as a base for the gift card/cash money gift to put inside.

You can see the folded paper  on this photo:

And some close up to butterflies here:

The last close- up to the card/cash envelope:

I hope you like my project and with Meg's Garden gorgeous Forgotten Meadows you can make a lot of similar projects/ mini books/ cards or scrapbooking pages.

Forgotten Meadows Collection Cards

Hello everyone, Miriam here with two lovely cards I have made with the Forgotten Meadows Collection from Meg's Garden. For the first one I used the background papers with three layers, distressed the edges and embellished  with lace and flowers. The second one is much the same but I used a Lace die to add some interest to the edge. Do hope you like them.

  •     Added a stick pin with some seam binding which I swiped with Victorian Velvet distress stain and added some vine leaves.

  1. Layered in some muslin cloth.

Used a Martha Stewart heart punch on the inside.

       The lace die here is by Couture Creations.

     Stamped the front of the card with a Darkroom Door texture stamp and embossed with Aged Aqua
embossing powder.
