Cards and Memory Pocket by Brenda Caldow

Hello crafty friends and welcome to the Meg's Garden Blog, Brenda here with you today to share my three cards and a memory pocket that I have made using the very beautiful Lavande paper range. 
This range is just beautiful but I love any patterned papers that have the hints of Lavender/purple on them. Purples are my favorite colour. 

The beautiful butterfly was fussy cut from the patterned papers and I used a punch for the smaller ones. I then inked the edges of them with a medium brown ink. Over a piece of plain cardstock I placed some Lavender Mesh Ribbon. These are great ribbons for all your craft projects and come in 8 different colours. 

Once again I have created my card with cutting from the papers the beautiful flowers and placed it on some purple/blue pearl paper. I also used some of the same paper to run across the middle of my card. I punched our of the patterned papers a lace strip which I placed on top and then run some pearls through the middle. Once this was done I then razed the my fussy cut flower strip on some cardboard to raze it up. Beside this I place a beautiful Aubergine and White Apple Blossom Flower and used a rubon Love word. Around the outside of the card I lightly inked and then used a journal pen to do some stitching. 

For this Birthday card I fussy cut the beautifully elegant lady form the patterned papers. She was placed over the top of some feathers as I felt they matched in well with her stunning hat. In the corner of the card I placed a Vintage Trinket Filigree Flower and them a lovely pink and green paper flower. All three I placed a large glass bling and then some small ones in each of the corners. 

Now it's time to share with you my Pocket Memory envelope. I have made a few of these now since my mum passed away. The doctor thought if I wrote things down that I wanted to talk to my mum about. It didn't matter if it was something new, past or just a feeling that it might help me with my healing process. I have continued it and its a way for my many thoughts to be placed somewhere. 
When this was suggested to me I decided since my mum loved my craft projects I would decorate my envelopes and write my thoughts on some tags. These are my latest ones. 

I have used the beautiful patterned papers on my back ground and to place my write up on the back. I do that on each one so it is there for my boys one day. The beautiful period lady I fussy cut from the papers and razed her up a little. I then used the beautiful Green Tara Fantasy Blooms - Lavender along with a strip of bling.

I fussy cut some tags for me to write my personal messages on to place the the pocket. As I write my thoughts on them I will fussy cut more and add them in.
