Mini Papercraft Pack - Megs Garden #1

Hello all you beautiful visitors and welcome to my blog.  Hope you are having a wonderful day!!

Megs Garden has recently released a new product, namely the Mini Papercraft Pack.  This pack is ideal for making cards, tags, mini albums, off the page projects, anything really that requires smaller sized papers and ephemera.  The pages are slightly smaller  than the original Mini Card Pack (which is also still available) but it has lots of added goodies and you can get it in both the printed and the digital version.  How cool is that??

I'm sharing two cards with you today made with the 'English Rose Garden' Mini Papercraft Pack.

This is the full pack (each page measures 8.5" x 11") ..


.. and, so far I have created four cards with it.
In this post I will show you the first two and then in the next few days I will share the other two.  Hopefully, you will enjoy this post enough that you will want to return to see those .. LOL!!

Card 1
Measures 3.5" x 6"

The background papers in the pack are 5.4" square so, to make a slightly taller card, I simply cut two of the squares to the width I needed, then tore them both diagonally across and layered them to create the extra length.

Added some machine stitching, stenciling with texture paste and some ink splatters. 

The strip cut from the side of one of the squares was used as a layer down the center of the card and I simply machine stitched it down the middle to secure it. 

 The birdcage label is from the ephemera in the pack and I've added a few seed beads as well.

The flowers are all available from Megs Garden.  The mini roses were sprayed very lightly with some acrylic paint and then everything was dry brushed with gesso.

Card 2
Measures 4" x 5.5"

No spraying or ink splatters this time, just some background stenciling with texture paste.

 All the ribbons used here are available at Megs Garden.  The raffia came from my stash.  I simply opened it out and shredded it.  Meg does have raffia available in her store but at the moment only has black and brown in stock.

 The beads and small green stamen clusters are from my stash and the frame is from Prima.

My fave flowers .. Puffy Paper Flowers!  Originally they were off-white and I've just sprayed them with different colours of watered down acrylic paint and then dry brushed them with gesso.  Of course, they are available from Megs Garden.

So, as I said before, these are the first two cards made from the Papercraft Pack.  In the next few days I will show you another two cards.  I'm really hoping you will want to come back to take a look.
