Sherlock III: a New Case - We create our tomorrows by what we dream today...

Sherlock III: a New Case
Bec here, showcasing the new collection from Meg's Garden.
With this amazing collection of vintage papers, I have created a layout for this awesome composition photo of my nephews. I have used 3 of the A4 papers to create this background and have layered them to show how effective they are together.
Here is a close up of the crackled background paper that I placed just behind the photo to co-ordinate with the brickwork and walls in the photo.
I used 3 of the metal embellishments down the side of the photo to draw the eye back to the main piece on the page.
I have layered the clock face charm on the round filigree trinket.
I have used a saying from the Ephemera from the Poetry ephemera sheets. I felt it linked well with the photo.
I stamped a diamond pattern along the edge of the background paper and the opposite side on the compass background paper
Here is the stamping on one of the new collection A4 pages.
I have placed black rhinestones on the corners of the layers to define the corners.
All of these products can be found on Meg's Garden website, follow the link below or click on the links I have provided to the individual products.
I hope you like what you see.

My 'Dar' by Meredith Hilly

Hello everyone.
 I have made a book using the Sherlock 111 papers. It's about my grandfather who we called  Dar.
I was very lucky to know him as a child as he was a really good grandfather.
I made the cover of the book out of corrugated paper. And fussy cut out different pictures.

 I added a smaller book that slides out from behind a photo.

I just love the tassels that Meg's Garden sells. Sometimes to make a picture have more depth I outline it with dimensional magic. Like a top hat. Which makes the hat shine.

Instead of making another book I slid photos behind some pictures I cut out.

Thanks for dropping by to have a look at my latest project.

Sherlock III: a New Case - Be as awesome as you can...

Sherlock III: a New Case
Be as awesome as you can.
I am popping in to show you my latest creation for Meg's Garden, using the NEW collection.

Using the Sherlock III, paper collection, I have created this layout of my nephew, Nathaniel.
I have tried to replicate the peeling paper with the brown kraft paper on the background.

I have used the layered papers from one of the background sheets as ephemera.

I really like the reflection of the owl in the water so I tried not to cover it.

I have used black enamel dots to repeat the black brad holding the sentiment tag.

I hope you like what I have created today with products from Meg's Garden, follow the link to her website below for more of an idea of what she sells.


Take care everyone

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a layout that I have made using some papers from Meg's Garden. This collection is called Sherlock II A New Case. It very vintage with some grungy elements to it. If you would like to create some masculine projects, this is the collection for you! However, it can still be used to create very pretty projects accompanied with flowers and vintage embellishments.

I fussy cut this cluster from an ephemera sheet from the collection and adhered it using foam tape. I used some Blue Fern Studio chip board as an embellishment and altered it with some Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder.

I used lots of Prima flowers in this layout as well as their textured stamps in my background.

The title is a chipboard piece from 2Crafty.

To add a vintage feel to my layout I inked all of my edges using distress ink and also added these metal cogs.

Vintage Spirit ~ Sherlock 111 A New Case Range

Hello Mary here to share a layout I created with the new range available in Megs Store ~ Sherlock Holmes 111 A new Case. I chose the 12 x 12 papers

Vintage Spirit

This photo was in my Mum's photo album and I need to find out her story. I scanned the writing on the back to add to my layout and for the clue whom this lady is ~ her name being Lottie. My Grandmother on my Fathers side had a twin sister Lottie , but I am pretty sure this is not her, but rather a relative on my Mothers side as "The Glen" was my Grandparents  home on my Mothers side. Anyway I will ask my Cousin when I next see her as she is probably the only one alive now that might know.

I was thrilled to receive the fringe tassel in my pack, how gorgeous is it ! I added the pearl trim and sheer ribbon to it and also placed the green with gold ribbon under the inscription from the back of the photo along with the ink nibs.
I am loving the branch with flowers die , as it is so versatile and I placed it along side my photo . I layered a couple of images from the cut and create sheet and also used the large round fligree and added the lion door knock charm to it.
The 12 x 12 pages comes with a 4x12 strip and I have used this to tear and place under my photo, which I then swiped over with Gesso to add definition to the edges . Also to my page I added some stamping and washi tape.
Thank you so much for calling by and I hope you take the opportunity to visit Megs Store, so much gorgeous product !
Happy Creating

Megs Garden Sherlock 111 Design team Post,Hello bloggers how lucky we are to have such gorgeous papers and embellisents to play with.

I have to confess I am very challenged when it comes to male cards
these papers were so easy to create with,,lots of vintage trinkets
and a 6x6 cardpack I think I succeded.
I added Cosmic Shimmer Rust effects paints to the trinkets
I really like how it added to the effects especially the box of matches

Sorry about my crooked greeting and cheesy title
on my second card

On my 3rd card I again used the rust effects paint on the vintage trinkets
I think card could be a bon voyage card 
I tried to cut the feather quill for an effective pen
and added the pen nib to the paper

Thanks for dropping by Megs Garden and don't forget to
checkout what the other talented
Design Team members create

Hello Mary here with a layout using the new range Sherlock 111 A new Case.


I kept this layout of my father and my middle child simple as I didn't want to take away from the pattern on the paper.

I have cut images from the cut and create sheet to layer in the bottom corner and stapled some  Jute ribbon to the page.

I also layered some coggs in the corner of my photo and placed the key underneath tied with black raffia. The box of matches I cut from the cut and create sheet and wanted to add this as my father was a smoker from a young boy. For a mat for my photo I layered images from the cut and create sheet .
Thank You for calling by, I hope you find time to be creative and visit Megs Store for a whole range of beautiful products to create with. Check out the DT inspiration on the blog for some lovely inspiration.
Happy Creating
