Hello Mary here to share some creating with Megs Gardens gorgeous range of papers and embellishments.
Firstly a layout from a range I truly love ~ Parisian Gardens. The papers are so pretty I really hate to cover them . Using some really old small photo's helps to solve this problem and keeping the page relatively simple.

I have had the little brass frames for ages , so decided to stagger them down the page with the narrow ribbon threaded through and cascading down the page also. For the middle frame I used a beautiful image from the cut and create sheet. The photo's are of my Mum and Dad and my aunt. To attach the frames I found Gel Medium was the best option. With the large fussy cut roses I placed them on foam squares to give dimension and then added green leaves to the roses

I have fussy cut quite a few images from the cut and create pages. The love Sentiment is cut from the cut and create page and shaded . I have used the oval filigree to attach the fussy cut images from. The large roses are fussy cut from the cut and create pages also.

I have added a little  antique pink lace under the top and bottom photo frames to add a touch of softness. I have used the little tags from the cut and create sheet at the side of my photos to add my documentation on .  All the products except the frames and heart chipboard piece can be found at Megs Store
Next I would like to share a card

I created the card with left over papers from the rose quartz range . I added the first layer of PP then  added the sheer green ribbon vertically down the page and placed another piece of pp over this.  I added a row of cream lace and a row of  antique pink lace under the  postcard image from the cut and create sheet. Behind the postcard image I have added another image and the Madame sentiment to add more layers.  I finished off by adding the filigree strip with a narrow ribbon bow and some pearl strips  and finally the fussy cut birds sitting on the branch .

I have been enjoying making these tags so much. This time I decided to make a masculine tag using the image and Monsieur word from the cut and create page.

My best friend is currently in hospital after having a double hip replacement, so I made a card to cheer her.

The background I have used  pieces of left over papers from layouts using Megs Gardens range of papers (nothing gets wasted ). I made a base using gesso, tissue paper , thread and mist to layer the images on. Lots of fussy cutting .I cut the centre from the Wreathe of flowers image and placed the Parisian lady underneath to show through. Fussy cut the two springs of flowers to place at the side, all are from the Cut and Create sheets. I added some Antique nylon Pink lace which is a little hard to see on the photo. On the opposite side I have the cream lace and Cream wide ribbon, which I have added the fussy cut decorative image upon. I then added a couple of  round silver Diamante Trim
Thank you for calling by , I hope you take some time to scroll through the blog for some amazing inspiration from the DT
until next time
