First up in our Ning gallery highlights is this lovely Secret Garden Tag by Miranda Edney. This tag is just perfect to welcome in the new spring season. The Seed Fairy paper looks wonderful beneath floral embellishments and chipboards. This tag is like a breath of fresh spring air!
Here we have a magnificent French Country mini album and organizer by Maria Cole. The saturated colors and elegant designs of French Country come to life in this amazing mini. We love the fussy cut sunflowers on the cover and Maria's fabulous use of French Country Chipboard Die-Cut Tags. This is such a wonderful way to create a beautiful and one-of-a-kind mini that you'll cherish for a lifetime!
Here we have a bright and cheerful Tropical Travelogue card by Karen Foy.We love how Karen used the saturated colors of the Island Jewel and Rainforest papers along with Tropical Travelogue Cling Stamp 1 to build this fabulous all-occasions card! It's a true beauty!
"Made using the lovely Tropical Travelogue papers and stamps. I enjoyed
creating a monotone look - the perfect colour theme to upload during the
St Patrick's Day weekend!" -Karen Foy
Isn't this just adorable? Here we have A Ladies' Diary layout by Romy featuring a very pretty feline. You can see some fabulous paper layering techniques in this sweet layout. Romy also added fussy cut elements with floral embellishments to give this LO added depth and dimension. It's just purrrrrfect!
Last but not least is this gorgeous Secret Garden altered box by Melissa Divelbiss. This is such a perfect project for springtime! This is also a great example of what you can create when you really let your imagination run wild with your favorite Graphic 45 papers!
"My secret garden! So wish I could just jump right in! Absolutely love
this collection! This started out as a humble little box I found on
clearance after Christmas. It will eventually hold a matching mini album
to hold Easter photos of my boys." -Melissa Divelbiss
