Easter Treats ~ Meg's Garden DT

Hi Scrappy Friends! Today I'm sharing a layout with you that I made using the gorgeous Meg's Garden Forgotten Meadows collection! I just love the soft floral images on these papers and decided to make a layout that really played on a balance between a large floral image and my photo collage. Here is my son searching for his Easter Treats this year!
I used a Prima basket-weave stencil and white molding paste along the right side of the layout and chose two colours of Lindy's Stamp Ganag mists that  match the tones in the large floral image on the left side of the page. I used the mini-papers to create the layering under my photos and added a flower (tinted with the same pink mist) and some lace from the Meg's Garden store. Finally, I added a few resin pieces, title and bling from my stash to complete the layout. Here is a close-up and a couple of different angles of the layout so you can see the layering!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Happy Scrapping!

Vintage Pocket Letter ~ Meg's Garden DT

Hello! Today I am sharing a new project for the Meg's Garden Design Team using a combination of the gorgeous Butterfly Garden and Forgotten Meadows collections, as well as some embellishments from the Meg's Garden Store and from my stash. Have you heard of pocket letters? I just recently learned about them and, since I love making Artist Trading Cards, I thought it would be fun to create a pocket letter page, which is (essentially) a collection of coordinated ATCs in a trading card page! The Meg's Garden Mini-Papers and Cut & Create Ephemera papers are absolutely perfect for creating pocket letters - you can also use bits and pieces leftover from your larger papers! I wanted this page to look as though it were a collection of vintage memorabilia from a trip to Paris, so I have distressed and added Vintage Photo distress ink to the edges of the papers.
 Here are some close-ups of each of the rows  (out of the plastic trading card page to avoid glare)!

I hope you like my pocket letter page - it was so fun to make! If you create one with Meg's Garden products, leave me a link in the comments below so I can pop by for a look!

Happy Scrapping!
