Meg’s Garden collection

I have started scrapbooking a very long time ago and my blog (scrappybychoice) not too long ago – I am trying to bring some of my older scrap pages and projects onto my blog….This collection of scrap pages was done for a monthly kit club that I really loved – Scrap That.  Sadly the club discontinued . Not sure if these papers and flowers are still available….The first one I did with these gorgeous papers was :

‘My Garden’

I used plain white card stock in the back and painted it with gesso. Then I used one of the sheets of paper from Meg’s Garden ‘Spring Paisley’ col (Spring Green Toile) and I fussy cut the corner of the beautiful roses and leaves.DSC_0772 I mounted the ‘corner’ on cardboard for a 3D effect and then glued it to my white card stock…For texture,I used dry moss that you would use in flower arranging.I used: –  Meg’s Garden  ‘ Spring Paisley’ col (Spring Green Toile), Prima Shabby Chic ‘Resin Birds’, Metal Bird cage,Wood buttons from the ‘Craftsman’ col ,Prima flowers ‘Tessitura B’ and I used Tim Holtz die cut for the bigger bird cage…and some Kaisercraft die cut pieces (eggs inside the cage and the Dragon flies) …

The next one I did was:

‘Backyard Beauty’


With this layout,I didn’t do anything to the background.The papers are so beautifully detailed already… I used a  round cut photo of my garden statue (we called her Edwina) and backed it with a  paper doily. I stamped the chipboard butterfly with green and added micro beads to it. Here I used : Meg’s Garden ‘Spring Paisley’col (Green Eau De Lavade) , Prima flowers ‘Romance Novel’ (Black velvet) , ‘Tessitura B’ ,Wood Buttons from ‘Craftsman’ col, Junkyard ‘Industrial lamp’, Wood clips (Peg) and Chipboard butterfly from Dusty Attic.

‘Us 3’


Here,I cut a strip out from behind the photo and made a ‘banner’ and curled the edges to the front and glued them down. I added doilies and flowers under the banner for a 3D look and added micro beads to the title. Used :Meg’s Garden ‘Spring Paisley’ col (Pink Eau de Lavande), Prima Resin Angel and flowers.

Up next:

‘Prima Ballerina’

DSC_0766Here,I just cut some of the flowers and leaves with my craft knife,inked the edges and lifted it a little with pop dots to give that 3D look. I’ve cut out the photo of my little girly and added stamped wings.I made the flowers with the ribbon from the kit. I added a few ballerina stickers from my stash.

‘Dear Lord’

DSC_0773I used plain card stock from Bazzille here and added my fussy cut pieces to it on the background and added some micro beads to it. To add texture,I used cheesecloth and dry moss…The flowers are from Petaloo ‘ New Camelia’ and Kaisercraft.

‘Cherished Time’

DSC_0769On plain card stock. I used a stencil in the back with a marker for some interest. For texture I used dry moss and leaves.Here and there I used pieces from my stash. Used on the LO are: Flowers from Petaloo ‘Penny lane’ col , Prima Junkyard Lamp and clock hands , wood clock and buttons from the ‘Craftsman’ col. The film strip was from Tim Holtz.  The photo is my very,very young Father-in-Law

‘Easter Basket’

DSCN1639I used the ‘Burgundy Paisley’ paper…cut it into strips and used both sides of the paper to ‘weave’ the basket. I used flowers and trim from my stash to fill the basket with Easter flowers….
