Hello fellow Crafters,

Here in the Southern Hemisphere, we are now experiencing Autumn, which is such a lovely time to start being creative.
Meg's new collection is to hand and is called 'Sherlock III with Sherlock New Case' and wow so perfect for the special male in your life.

Today for you, I have created a small Man's Journal beginning from scratch as I did not have one on hand.  I cut up some cardboard approx. 6" x 8".  Here are some pics of it coming together.

Now for the good fun, I have made the pages so as to take pics and/or notes.

I made a small paper bag which I inked for some journalling inserts.

Covered the centre strips with book pages and inked to suit.

This collections 'New Case' cut outs are fantastic and great for using in whatever you wish to create.

Here are some closeups of Meg's Garden brass embellishments.

I hope you have enjoyed the journey today and be sure to check out this lovely collection HERE.  Until next time.....happy creating from Liz. :)

Video of Sherlock III - A New Case

Hello Bloggers

Had fun with this new mini album - I had a note on my work table that said:


I did not manage the doors but managed the others.
(P.S. There is a new die - French Doors)

There are 6 signatures - most have a flap, pockets & room for journaling - there is even 1 of the signatures that is totally dedicated to journaling or you can add pics to the pockets.

Materials used:

Sherlock III - A New Case Book paper collection

Cardstock: Chocolate (most of the pages & covers), black & mocha for interest - I like to add another colour or 2 to add more interest to the book rather than just having one

Corrugated cardstock paper:  great texture & must be torn & inked 

Chipboard for cover & spine

Distress inks:  frayed burlap & soot

Vintage trinkets - handle for the front cover, cogs throughout, pen nibs & other filigree elements

Camel jute ribbon, jute twine, skeleton leaves, clips, key w key chain & dodo vine

Old book pages: a french book page rolled for the cover, some Chaucer for a tuck in on a flap & the cover plates with the introduction of Geoffry Hamlyn (a very old book for $2) - love searching for bargains

Dies: 5 were used. Circles & More Circles m221
Circles (not True circles) m3121
Gears - small & large m105 & m277
Scribbles & Splat - m3130

Shades of Green cards by Marina Gridasova

Hello Meg's Garden fans!
Marina is here today and I want to share with you my new cards with  Shades of Green collection.  I adore this soft and fresh collecton with lots of different elements on the ephemera sheets. You could fussy-cut all of them and get a lot of beautiful embellishments and layers for your projects!
So here is the first one card

 some close-ups:

 the second one:


 I want to create romantic works with floral accents, so used fussy-cutted elements. Also I want to use the butterflies, but because they were big for my cards, I used them as one more layer for the title. I love to create layered works, so always added a lot of them - and also because you find a lot of pretty details on ephemera sheets )))))

Hope you were enjoyed and inspired by my works and this collection and will create your own The Shades of Green projects!
Have a great day,

The Best and Most Beautiful Things in the World Cannot be seen or even Touched, They Must be felt with the Heart ~ Shades of Green

Hello Mary here again to share a layout using the Shades of Green range that will go in the album next to the last layout I shared as a kind of double page spread.
Once again I used two of the A4 Shades of Green Papers to create my 12 x 12 page.

So I just overlap my two A4 Pages to create a 12 x 12 size.

In my cluster I have used paper roses, pearl trim, paper leaves , a charm key and mesh ribbon, The Love word is cut from the cut and create sheet and I added a filigree strip with a enamel dot. In opposite corners of my photo I placed the brass corner drop with loop .

I have a strip of lace running down my page and for texture used a stencil and texture paste and added colour with my paints, I then added some light stamping

Thanks so much for calling by .
Don't forget to pop over to Megs Store for all your supplies
Happy Creating

Hello fellow crafters,

Mary here today to share another layout for my Daughters wedding album using the Shades of Green Range.
The Perfect Day ~ it really was

Once again I have created a 12 x 12 page by using a piece of cardstock to adhere the A4 shades of green pattern paper to.

I recently purchased the Oval Die cut which comes with two dies, this is the large, but the small is also a good size, perfect for framing your photo. On the opposides of my page I added the Screen Print die in mint green  to add a touch of colour and a decorative element to my page.

I created a cluster in the corner of the photo with a filigree Flower placed a paper flower and leaf on the top , attached a charm heart with pearl trim and also placed a clear gem ball and 3 pastel enamel dots, all placed on a ribbon of lace.In the opposite corner I placed the Filigree stip with the Honey Bee charm.

I used the satin edged sheer ribbon to tie a bow so to me it almost looks like a book that you can open . For texture I added the flower pattern in each corner through a stencil with texture paste and coloured with distress oxide inks . The Happiness chippy was given to me by my friend Bec and I also coloured it with Distress Oxide.
Thank You so much for calling by, I hope I have inspired you to pop over to Megs Store and get yourself some gorgeous product to create your memories with.
Happy Creating
