Meg's Garden Design Team Christmas Challenge


When my package from Meg's Garden arrived, it was like Christmas was here already.
In the box were papers, ribbons, holly, beautiful lace and these gorgeous Jewel Topped Pins, German scrap, Gold Flitter and the sound of some Jingle Bells, yes the bells were ringing.
So I decided that there was so much gorgeous goodies that I decided to do three items.
The first is a Christmas Angel page Layout.
With the sound of those Jingle Bells, it reminded me of the old classic 1946 Movie,
"It's a wonderful Life" which at the end of the movie the family gather around the christmas tree and they all say "Every time a bell rings an Angel gets its Wings".

I selected two pages of "Red and Cream Lace paper 12" x 12 , cut out the middle and cut it in half so the borders are the same all around.
The middle section with the angel is from the Mini paper Pack Christmas 1. In this pack you get 2 each of the six different styles of the Christmas 1 papers mini version. Again I cut it into half into two triangle shapes and joined together to create the same border all around.
The vintage photo in the middle is from Meg's Garden Vintage Christmas 1 collage sheet

My next project is a Vintage Angels Canvas

Merry Christmas Vintage Angels Canvas

Using Meg's Garden Vintage Christmas 1 Collage sheet

Meg's Garden Lace, Jewel Pins

Using a canvas I painted it cream and gold then painted gesso with some tissue paper creating a distress and folded look and inked it. I made the flowers and vine leaves out of red cardstock and some of Meg's Garden Mini Christmas pack paper.  I framed a vintage christmas collage photo. Glimmermisted the beautiful Lace from Meg's Garden. This will be hanging in my family room when I decorate the room for Christmas.
