The Forget Me Not Collection done by Gabi


Gabi from Canada uses the Forget me Not Collection on her very beautiful & elegant layout.

Gabi says: 'Almost everything on the page is from the Meg's Garden store except for one flower and a piece of chipboard.  Most of it is from the Forget Me Not collection but I did use a frame that I cut out from the Collage Cartouche paper, and a little bundle of Lily of the Valley from the French Vintage Postcards ATC's. '

Title: Two Cute

Supplies used from Meg's Garden Shop:
Patterned Paper: The Forget Me Not collection (Shades of Blue P6302, Butterflies & Blue Forget Me Nots P6304, Blue Forget Me Nots P6298A, Blue Butterflies P6299A), Collage Cartouche 3402 (Frame cut out)
French Vintage Floral Postcards ATC036
Paper Lace Doilies
Ivory Paper Roses
White Lace 1.6 cm
Mulberry Petals (green)
Pale Pink Jazz Fibres

'These beautiful papers just call for fussy cutting. 
I love to cut out the butterflies and add some stickles to add a little sparkle and texture. 

I also very lightly moistened parts of the paper in order to crinkle it back a bit and allow the paper doilies to peek out.   The photo is one that I took of my two girls a few months ago when we went to an apple festival.  They are 3 years apart in age but I love that they still like to (sometimes) spend time with each other :)

Well done Gabi. I love the all the embellishments you have used - the 3D butterflies are exquisite; the water softened paper scrunched to allow the paper lace doily to peep through is a fabulous idea; the distressed edges & corners are very beautifully done. Your fussy cutting is perfection & everything ties together beautifully.  Your girls are so pretty.

My sincere apologies to Gabi & to blogland - I had her blog link incorrect - have now fixed it.

Bye for now
