Notes Holder - by Brenda Caldow

Hello and a very warm welcome to Meg's Garden Blog today. I would like to show you a Notes Holder that I have created using the Forgotten Meadow Collection. This is such a beautiful range and my mind runs wild with all the things that can be created from it. 

The beautiful patterned paper I chose to use is - Wisteria Shade and I over the Kaiser Notes holder with it. The cut and create sheet is what I chose to fussy cut the beautiful mauve/purple flowers from along with the butterflies.
 To colour the edges of the timber I used a Kaiser Fusion and I inked the edge of my Wisteria Shade patterned paper with Distress Ink - Shaded  Lilac.

This beautiful girl makes me smile when I look at her. The wonderful thing is she comes on the Vintage French Girls 2 - A4 sheet of nine and there are other sheet designs to choose from too.  I love it when I look at craft work and there is a face there with a sweet look or smile.

This little shelf is so you can stand your notes on it. I coloured this with the Fusion as well and then place some of the gorgeous Cream Lace over the top. I always love to use flowers when I can so I decided to use these beautiful white Azaleas. There are a lot of different Charms to choose from but I liked the gold Flying Bird.

As you can see I have fussy cut the butterfly from the papers and I also used an Antique Champagne Tassel on each end. These are great because they come in a strip that you can get at what ever length you want. But you can also use then individually if you want just like I have. 

On this side instead of another butterfly I chose to use one of the small Ivory Rose flower.

Hugs Brenda
