Lavande album

Hello, everyone!

Veronika here to share another my work with Lavande 
from Meg's Garden. Please, do not forget that you can find this collection in digital and paper version.
This time I made a big album. Size is more than A4 with ten pages and a lot of places for photos.
I think the main colour of this collection is my favourite. And it looks very beautiful in every work.

Please check this awesome Lavande collection
here in Meg's Garden.

Best regards,

Old Times Book by Meredith Hilly

Hello everyone. I had a fun time using the Sherlock Journal Vol.ll papers. Recently at a garage sale I found some old hard cover books with beautiful gold gilded covers. The actual book pages and binding was damaged. So I removed the pages and replaced them with the Sherlock papers.

I cut the paper to fit inside the book and then distressed the edges to make them look worn. Using a walnut stain ink and then Versa Colour 171 Pinecone on the paper edges to achieve an aged look. 
The binding of the book was to far gone to repair so I found some matching card stock. Using gold embossing and stamping it with a similar pattern I matched the rest of the book.

I attached a clip onto the top of the book binding with which I hung a key on.

Most of the pages I fussy cut out to embellish the book pages with.

The old hard covered books use to have there own ribbon book marks sew into the binding.
I was able to keep this one and use it.

My good old Guinea fowl donated a lovely feather to be used with the metal quill on the page.

This book is the perfect size for a small keepsake album. Now you can go find some hard bound covers of unloved books and transform them with Megs papers into a classy project.
 Thanks for having a look at my latest creation.

Amazing You ~ Lavande Range

Hello Mary here today sharing with you my third layout documenting my Granddaughters Graduation using the Beautiful Lavande Range.
Once again I have kept the layout clean lines and simple

Amazing You

a closer look

For this layout I used the 12" x 4" strip that comes with the 12 x 12 papers to add as a interest behind my photo. I cut the strip into smaller strips and then I used a paint brush to add gesso around the edges to give definition . Usually I swipe gesso over the whole area and wipe back, but because I did not want the pattern dulled, this time I used the paint brush.
I added a little stamp in two of the corners, the soft mauve ribbon to add flow and then draped the  pearl trim and anchored it with a flower gem. Above my title I added the diamante gem.

Thank you for calling by. I hope you take the time to visit Megs Store , you won't be disappointed with all the gorgeous products to tempt you and also you will get lots of inspiration here on the blog from the DT's amazing creations
Until next time

Sherlock Journal Vol II by Mary Bennetts

Hi Bloggers

Mary just sent me her video of the fabulous journal that she made using the Sherlock Journal Vol II papers.

Mary's Video

She has used her family photos & has journaled them really well - she calls the journal 'My Story'.

Some fabulous ideas on how to create a family album that is artistic as well as heritage as well as journalling.

Have a look

Bye for now
