French Garden Cards for Meg's Garden and a Farewell!

Hello my crafty friends!! Today I'd love to show you some cards I've made featuring the gorgeous 6x6 Meg's Garden French Garden Collection. I've used lots of products from Meg's Garden to complete my cards and I hope that you enjoy the final products!!

For my first cards above on the left, I used the gorgeous Small Rectangular Parisian Frame to frame one of my images from the Meg's Garden French Garden Cut and Create page. All of the images I used for my card come from this page.  I painted the Laser Frame in pink to tone in with the gorgeous flowers on the page. I added a Paper Lily, Pale Pink Heirloom Flower, and Hot Air Balloon Vintage Trinket. For a finishing touch I added some pink stitching.

For the second card above used another image from the French Garden Cut and Create page. I added some Paper Doily Strips under the image then a gorgeous Pink and Cream Open Paper Rose and a buttefly from the A4 Butterflies Transparency. The ribbon comes from the Temptations in Green package of goodies and I finshed off the card with black stitching.

For my next two cards above I used more of the gorgeous 6x6 Meg's Garden French Garden Collection and images from the French Garden Cut and Create.  I love the vintage dress on the lady in the first card! I layered the image on a 10 cm Paper DoilyI inked the whole card and the Paper Lily with Spiced Marmelade Distress Ink to tone in with the image. I added a gorgeous Butterfly Vintage Trinket, some 5cm Green Leaves and a lovely little Ivory Small Rose.

My second card above again uses a vintage image from the collection, some lovely gold ribbon from the Temptations in cream, camel, copper & brown and two gorgeous butterflies from the A4 Butterflies Transparency. I finished off both cards with more black stitching.

I love the way my vintage cards turned out and hope you do too!! 
Thank you for stopping by!!

Masquerade Layout for La-La Land Crafts

This week at La-La Land Crafts the theme is Funky Colors! This layout features the new dies from CHA 2015:

Masquerade Mask
Large Lacy Border

My vintage image has lots of funky colors mixed together so I decided to continue the colors and patterns into my layout, repeating the harlequin pattern with orange colored texture paste and adding lots of different colored flowers.  I added some zig zag and straight stitching around the eduge of my layout.

I really love the new dies, such gorgeous designs!! I hope you enjoy my layout!!

Delightful Layout for Riddersholm Designs

This week I wanted to share a layout featuring the gorgeous Vintage Venture collection and some yummy Shimmerz Texturez and Wycinaka chipboard you can find in the Riddersholm Shop!  I have a great collection of vintage images that I love to use for layouts and cards, and since it is snowing a little outside today, I was inspired to chose this cute image!

Here you can see the gorgeous Sandy Stone Texturez modeling paste I used to make my snowflakes...the color tones in nicely with the papers.  I used some corrugated board (that my DT parcel came wrapped in, perfect!!!) and papers from the Vintage Venture collection for my layers under the photo. I stitched around the edges of my photo for a nice effect.

Here you can see where I layered some fussy cut pieces from the collection and added in some lace and gorgeous flowers and metal pieces. The delicate flourish chipboard piece is from Wycinaka.  I added some subtle stamping and splashes to finish off my background.

Thank you so much for visiting!!

Plaisir: A Layout for La-La Land Crafts

This week at La-La Land Crafts the theme is Flourishes! I decided to feature the Berry Flourish die for my flourish. I added lots of layers to layout photo, tucking in flowers, frames, wooden clocks, tags and the Steampunk Heart Cogs around the photo as well as the Honeycomb Die. I also repeated these two die cuts on the smaller embellishment cluster at the bottom right of the page.  I added a wire oval frame over the photo and added some seagulls using the Birds Die. I added a title and lots of stamping, splashing and gesso touches on the layout.

I really love the way this turned out and I hope you do too!

Soar Layout for Riddersholm Designs

I thought I'd start the New Year off with a big JUMP! 

I think this gorgeous paper from Vintage Venture is very modern looking and I wanted to pair it with a photo I have been wanting to use of my daughter jumping off of sand dunes at the beach this summer. The modern feel fits the photo of my young daughter, as well as the fun camera and arrow  chipboards from Wycinaka.

You can see many layers here on my layout. I started with a whitewash of gesso, on which I stamped a live laugh love stamp. I fussy cut a vintage balloon from the Vintage Venture collection to layer underneath my photo, I thought it fit the "soar" title I gave the photo.  The balloon image has lots of ropes and netting on it and so I thought it would be fun to tie into that with some twine across the layout.  I also used a garden wall stencils and my Gritty Graphite Texturez by Shimmerz to add some texture to the layout.

I used lots of gorgeous Prima blooms and added in some shells from my stash. I added some cut outs from the Tailgate Marked collection to finish it all of.

I hope we all get a chance to SOAR in 2015!
