Male Pop up Card

Hi everyone, Miriam here with my latest project for Meg's Garden.

I love making pop up cards and  Kerry-Jean's Gentlemen's Collection was perfect for this one. I have only used cardstock and some embellishments as the paper didn't need anything else. I used craft card for the base and topped this with black card. Kerry-Jean's Gentlemen Collection and The Correspondence Cut & Create paper from Meg's Garden, with Do Do vine and Tim Holtz metal embellishments all from Meg's Garden. I made little bridges from black cardstock for the inside to stand up. 

Looking forward to the September challenge. Until next time.

Hand Stitched Journal

Hello everyone, Miriam here with my latest project for Meg's Garden. I have made a small journal to go with a concertina box and a card,. The journal is hand stitched and I made a mask to make the edges look aged and applied vintage photo, also added a few sentiments on alternative pages. On the inside I edged the concertina box with strips I have embossed and topped with vintage photo and did the same with the little card, also added a sentiment inside the card, hope you like these they were really fun to make .All products used are listed below

Sherlock Holmes Book

Hello everyone.This album is my latest project for Meg's Garden. I love making albums of any size and this one is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  I covered the chipboard cover with craft card and then the outside with Kerry-Jean's Correspondence collection, and inside I used her Sherlock Holmes collection, I also used inside a paper stack I had in my stash the went well with papers.I used gesso and a colour spray on most of the pages, then edged with vintage photo. In the middle pages I used a ribbon punch and threaded some narrow cut paper through. Some cork I had left over from another project also went well. There are plenty of tags and pockets with photo mats.Used a couple of magnets on some flaps also.

French Garden Butterfly Book

Hi everyone, Miriam here with my latest mini album.I just love the colours pink and green to work with and when I opened my box of goodies from Meg's Garden I couldn't wait to get started. The album is 6x6 with a 2 1/4" spine. I covered the chipboard with white card stock then added the French Garden pink paper and fussy cut some flowers and foam mounted them on top. I embossed the chipboard frame, placed one of the lovely ladies inside it and added a stick pin and ribbon. The spine and the back are plain. The album has lots of pockets and tags and the flip pages can be used for journal spots as well. I inked the edges with Victorian Velvet and did a little masking on the front and also cut around some of the images and slipped tags behind them
