while the second one is more an earthy tone and monochromatic card.

Narnu Farm - Scrapbooking Memories Magazine


Hi there everyone, Adriana here today sharing a layout that I have created with the papers from Meg's Garden collection, this collection is called -

This layout is featured in the special
issue of "Scrapbooking Memories" issue Vol 17 no 1
This issue is showcasing some amazing
talented creatives in Australia and New Zealand.



These are the papers that I have used to create this layout
all available from Megs Garden Website







The story behind the layout
"Narnu Farm" is situated on Hindmarsh Island 
in South Australia, near Goolwa. It is a cabin style farm which you can book accommodation to stay overnight and also feed the animals and look at life on a working farm.
My daughter went there for her school camp and
had a wonderful time with her teachers and 
friends from school. 
A very rustic truck sits at the entrance of farm for people to see as they enter the farm gate.

I created a corrugated rustic fence with the "Corrugated Iron" papers, but I cut them up and place brads at each end.I also
placed some "Burlap" paper under the matted photo, just for
an added rustic touch.



I created a cluster of flowers on the bottom of the photo, I handmade 2 flowers from some old vintage book paper.

I then added some Velvet Viola Posy flowers, Oatmeal flowers & Paper leaves, a touch of Burlap trim and also
added some Skeleton Mesh to the ends of the of flowers. 




List of materials available from Meg's Garden

"Grand Paris" Couture Creations Embossing folder


Hello there everyone,
is it my turn again today 
Today I have a few projects created with the
same Embossing folder -


This embossing folder can be used
just on it own on a card or as a tag for any special project.
Here are a few projects I created with the same folder.



I embossed a piece of white cardstock
then cut the embossed card straight in half,
I then inked them and mounted them on tags,
These tags will be used on some special
pages I have planned for the future!!




Here is another card which was featured
in the last issue Creative Inspirations #4 magazine

After embossing the paper in the folder
I gently inked the raised image with different coloured inks and
Couture Creations - sponge daubers
I embossed also a piece of
copper foil film and adhered it on the side
of the card, adding touches of flowers and words.
Mounting the whole image on a black card stock.



In my next card I embossed the folder with a piece of Kraft card stock and
gently inked with Vintage photo ink pad,
adding some photos of iconic images of Paris on the bottom of the card. 
A very Mono-chromatic card!



So, there you have some different examples of using the
same folder in three different ways.
