Hello one and all,

Well it is nearly the New Year and if you are anything like me, a little time on your hands to tackle some new projects.


For you today, I have altered a children's picture book that I picked up at my local 'Op' Shop.  I applied this beautiful Collection 'Paris Chic' mixed  with a few  small elements from other of Meg's Garden Collections,  such as , Watercolours Garden, French Chic, Spring Pastels and Parisian Gardens. 
 I also added book pages, along with music sheets to Meg's Collections.

 For the edges of the book itself I used Atlantic Versa ink, which I always find a perfect match for some of these papers.   To the cut and create items I applied a little Inca Gold to the edges, which gives them a vintage feel.

 Finally some well placed doilies and here is the front cover.
 Meg's Gardens beautiful ribbon lace with chiffon ribbon, all teamed with  Lock and keyhole.

As you would have noticed in my last month's post, this journal pack is jammed pack with lots of paper, so I set about making up some cards for my stash.

 Now for a close up of the special extra ribbons and metal embellishments from Meg's Garden.

 Well I hope you have been inspired to get creative over the holidays and remember to 'think outside the box' for altering simple items.
Thanks for taking the time to look and until next time.......Happy New Year  ......Love Liz

Make a Wish...

Hello Everyone,
Bec here, returning with the French Chic Pk.2 Card Artists' Packs/Mini Papers

The script paper was perfect with the Filigree oval from the Vintage Trinkets on Meg's store and the Ivory Mini Rosebuds.

I have taken apart the velvet flower ribbon to make a cluster on top of a semi circle doily
The dusky blues work well together IRL.

This sage green floral PP is so beautiful with the stamping I have added to the white card stock, the sage green organza ribbon worked perfectly to join the two.  The ivory mini rosebuds make up the centre of my bow. 

Hope you like this simple elegant cards using the new French Chic collection.

Take care from

I Sketched around the butterfly & flowers & adhered blue beads to the wings & flowers
a metal embellishment is highlighted with Blue INKA GOLD
and the journal is tied with a soft blue crystal organza ribbon

A chipboard butterfly added to the printed paper

Hello, my friend...

Hello Everyone,
Introducing myself to the Meg's Garden blog, with my first project.

My name is Bec Jefferis, an unknown crafter from Orange, NSW, Australia.
I moved to Australia from the UK, back on the 30th of December 2010.  I have always been a card maker and was introduced to scrapbooking by the stunning Mary Bennetts 5 years ago.
Through Mary, I have met some beautiful scrappers and am delighted to call them forever friends.

When Mary suggested I ask to become part of Meg's Garden DT, I jumped at the chance.  Thank you Meg for this opportunity. 

I have used the French Chic Pk.1, Card Artists' Packs/Mini Papers in my first project.


On this card, I have used a heart lace doily, some fine tulle, and a single white rose from Meg's collection.
Absolutely love this PP with a touch of everything elegant.


This sage green PP was so beautiful with these yellow centred cherry blossoms, the white nylon lace and tulle tucked under, all sat on top of a semi circle of a doily.

I wanted to leave the sage rose and white lily on the PP exposed but had a lot of white space so I used some pearl vines to fill the space.

Last but not least I used the soft pink rose PP on top of the soft pink floral pattern, with a cream organza ribbon and the small pink paper roses.

Meg's products are so versatile and easy to use in all varieties of products so I would definitely head over to the website to see what amazing wonders she has. 

Thank you for taking the time to see my post.

Using up those little pieces left over

Hello Mary here today and I thought I would like to share a few simple ways to use those pieces we have left over after completing layouts.
Travel Notebooks are very popular at the moment and I have just completed my first one documenting my daughters Hens dinner

I found the 4" x 12" strip that comes with the 12 x 12 papers works well for decorating my pages with . By placing the strip length wise it is the right width and I just needed to trim some off the bottom.

One side of your notebook is a plastic sleeve, so you can pop sequins etc in as well if you choose and then use a fuse tool to seal the opening

The cut and create images are great for decorating your page as well , or you can create your own embellishments by puching shapes like butterflies, hearts , stars etc from the small pieces of PP, punch a circle to layer them on , add some ribbon a quote .

I am keen to make another Travellers note book, they are great for documenting a event or daily life.
Next I made a birthday card 

I constructed the card by layering little squares of Left over PP from the Sherlock Holmes Papers ,I also layered some images from the cut and create sheet and fussy cut the gentleman from the Cut and Create sheet. I distressed and inked around the edges with Vintage Paper Distress Ink.
I hope I have given you some ideas on using your left over stash . Don't forget to visit Megs Store as there are gorgeous new ranges available for you to create with. 
Happy Creating
Mary x
