Christmas Cards by Leanne

Hello everyone,
Christmas is getting closer so now is the perfect time to start creating your Christmas cards.
I have created 3 cards using "A Twinkling Christmas S147 12 piece 145mm square patterned paper pack. My cards have been embellished with lace, ribbons, pearl trim, paper flowers, gold & white leaves, gold or sliver star trims, cherub trim & glitter. You can never have too much glitter.
I love pink & this card also features silver & white.
I have distressed & inked the paper edges to create a shabby chic card.

Silver, gold, red & white feature in this simple classic style card.

Blue, white & gold, a little fussy cutting, a die cut snowflake & gold glitter create a simple festive style card.
I hope I have inspired you to create some Christmas cards for this festive season. Check out the great Christmas papers & embellishments available on Meg's Garden online store.

Until next time.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day & happy creating.

Mini Books

Hello Bloggers
I love making mini books & these are truly minis with only 2 double page inserts.

Pale blue cardstock is used on all pages. The cover ephemera is double matted on blue with white. The silver glittered ribbon is placed behind the ephemera (foam mounted) to close the mini book with a bow.  When the book is left open the ribbon can be artfully draped.  White german scrap is used along the bottom of the entire book.

The inside of the first double page showing hanging baubles. When the book is open they can be tied together

Left inside page

Right inside page

The second double page insert shows 2 more hanging baubles as well as two crystal jewels  glued to the left inside
The back of the mini book is also decorated

The red & green mini book uses one of the Accordion Book Kits

The covers of the book & the middle page use the Green Traditional cardstock of Christmas with jingle bells, gold holly & red beads as berries

Inside 1st page
Middle page has ephemera & tags
3rd page s back to red
Back cover

Plenty of room to insert photos, correspondence & journalling

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas , so why not make it a Twinkling Christmas

Hello Mary here today and I don't want to scare you or anything , but..... Christmas is creeping up very quickly, so it's time to start getting those Cards made.
The new Twinkling Christmas Range is gorgeous and comes in

 - 10 papers A4 - 6 background plus 4 ephemera
 - also a card artist pack
 - in digi or print
I chose the Card pack and it made my Christmas card making sooooooo easy. 
 The paper comes pre cut to make 12  6 x6 cards & With the beautiful Ephemera  images I created my cards in no time at all. Christmas Cards done !
All the images on my cards are from the Emphera sheet . 

The little silver stars and angels are also from Megs . The stars have a peel off back and are adhesive .

For this card, after fussy cutting the Christmas Baubles from the Ephemera sheet , I used sheer pink ribbon to hang the Baubles and attached with the Silver Stars ,all available in  Megs Shop.

I will be back next time to share the rest of my cards and a Christmas layout, using a image from the Christmas Emphera sheet. I would get in quick to get your Christmas supplies from Megs store  .There is heaps of gorgeous Christmas images on the Emphera sheets to make plenty of cards or to use on layouts. 
Until Next time
Happy Creating

Good morning everyone,

Liz here with you, once again showcasing Megs beautiful range of  'A Twinkling Christmas' and how versatile it is with other Collections.


 Now for a closer look.  I love making with card, as it is a little surprise packet, especially using  this new Collection 'A Twinkling Christmas'.

  This beautiful collection has such stunning images and suit this type of card quite well.  Meg's Christmas bell is unique and so delicate. Along with the ribbons and trim.  The little star I had in my stash which I heat embossed with some gold and glitter and perfect for keeping the card closed.

Now open, the card has a little surprise.

 A bit of fussy cutting of the little cherub, stocking , bauble and ribbons to make it bounce of the card.

                                                             BUTTERFLY KISSES

I created this Birthday card for our little granddaughter and used 'Spring Pastels', along with A Twinkling Christmas Ballerina.

                                                         CHRISTMAS BASKET

This little basket would be lovely as a 'Teacher' gift or for that special person, filled with some goodies for Christmas.

For the inside of the box, I used 'White Flowers on Green' , and 'Parisian Gardens' Collections.  Here is a close up look of the outside panels which were completed using 'A Twinkling Christmas' Collection. 

Well I trust that you have enjoyed our little journey today and that you agree with me, that this range of 'A Twinkling Christmas' is simply stunning and versatile with your other Meg's Garden Collections.

Thanks for taking the time to look and be sure to check out more of this Collection HERE.  Until next time.......happy creating......Liz.
