Balloon Of Flowers.

Hello everyone. I hope you have been busy creating a new project or finishing that special layout.
I have this lovely balloon which was created using Megs garden papers and flowers.
I used feathers from my own Guinean Fowl gave a pretty addition to the flower layout.


Using shimmer mist gave the large flower on top a pretty depth of colour.


Crystal ribbon around the middle of the balloon was a nice finish.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my blog. Wishing you loads of time to be creative.

Santas Workshop.

This little house was lots of fun to make. I used the Santa's film from Megs garden to fill in the windows of the church so when the lights are turned out a little battery operated candle could be placed inside it and shine through the windows. White lace was used to make icicle's and silver was used to represent the snow dusting the whole scene.







Marie Antoinette years gone by.

Thanks to Some beautiful papers and embellishments fro Megs Garden I was able to make these stunning Photo frames of Marie Antoinette.
The frame on the left  I used Blue and white to show her younger years and gold and pink on the right hand frame for her older years.
Inking the edges and with brown and letting the edges no be totally glued down so it rolled a little gave it a aged look.


My flower patch.

I had so much fun doing this flower stand. Using my husbands skills we made a stand with four rods. These rods I covered in gold and green ribbon. The base was wrapped in the fluffy green yarn you buy for knitting with. I wanted it to look like grass. Each of the flowers where given a hit of pearl shimmer mist with some having small pearl beads glues to the edges. I embellished the flower stand with gold insects and little bottles of crystals. I am very happy how this flower stand turned out.

Birthday Book.

I made this birthday book from the lovely papers from Megs Garden. It is designed to open and sit on a surface showing the current month. With slide out tags to write your friends and family important dates. Once the current year is over a new Birthday book can be made and the old tags can be slid back into it. These tags do not have a year just a date so they can be reused over and over again.

The round table.

The Round table- The best storage unit.
One of the best things of having a really well stocked scrapbooking shop in your
own town (scraping 4 keeps) is the classes you can attend.
After collecting the tins I wanted to use I arranged and attached the tins on the board. The board spun around so I could choose the tools I require while scrapping.

Most of the paper I use was Graphic 45  "Steampunk spells collection" range . I am totally in love with Graphic 45. I also made tin embellishments using my Big Shot and ink stamps.
This project is on my work bench and is used all the time.

Hello Bloggers.
I had the great pleasure to work with these lovely papers which inspired me to create a gift box for my valentine. The lucky recipient was my husband who appreciated the chocolates but seem to get more enjoyment from the gift book.

I started by painting the suit case with smoke blue paint and edged the corners with silver ink. I used the butterflies collection to cover the outside. I then fussy cut some of the butterflies gluing them down in the centre and lifting the wings up to make them appear they are sitting there.

I used silver and blue glitter glue to highlight the flowers and butterflies. I placed small crystals
beside the flowers as I was trying to catch the light.


Inside I  placed some yummy chocolates and a valentine voucher book made from the butterfly collection paper.
The inside lid I continued the silver glitter and used a lace love heart to represent the valentine theme.

 I had fun using the papers to make the voucher book. I found the papers worked well for small projects like this one. Some of the Vouchers were "Get out of yard work for the day" or "Control of the remote."Don't worry there was a use by date.

  I used the round silver Diamante trim as a strip of embellishment and cut each individual ones as the studs for the suitcase.  

Thank you for having a look at my project and I look forward to creating many more creations with megs gardens wonderful scrapbooking treasures.
