CTMH Florence Australasian Blog Hop

Blog Badge

Welcome to the Australasian Florence Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from  Lauren’s Blog you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it.  Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from.  Each blog will showcase a project featuring the Florence Workshop Your Way Collection (G1107) from Close To My Heart.

 

G1107 Florence WYW

Today’s layout uses the gorgeous Hearts Thin Cuts.  The hearts are not symmetrical so they have a whimsical feel to them.  The fact you get 3 sizes in the one set makes clustering easy.  Great for using small leftover pieces of paper too.

When you cut each Heart Thin Cut (Z3260) you actually get two pieces – a solid heart and a frame. This layout uses the small and medium heart. Simply mix up the frames so they contrasted with a solid heart.  You can experiment with different layering effects of solids and frames.  It’s lots of fun.

The Love Thin Cut (Z3257) was perfect to complete the page.  Cut once from print paper and once from black cardstock and offset to give a shadow effect.

The small prints and soft colours of the Florence collection pair perfectly with Heart Thin Cuts.  Have a play – no two layouts will look the same.

The Florence Workshop Your Way (G1107) kit is only available until the end of August.  Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant. If you don’t have a consultant, you can order online through my website .  A list of products used in this project appears below.

Thin Cuts – Moroccan Feast

Standard

We have friends who are as devoted to good food and wine as we are.  Recently we had a Moroccan themed dinner party.  Having never been to Morocco, I have no table accessories to suit. I needed my trusty CTMH supplies to create the illusion!

I used Glitter paper and the Cricut Artiste Cartridge to make the placemats.  They were perfect and everyone was very careful not to spill anything so I can use them again!

The Ornate Blossoms Stamps (D1687) and Thin Cuts (Z3227) teamed nicely with my Shin Han markers to make napkin rings.  I gold embossed the stamp before colouring.

Six plain water glasses were transformed into a candle centrepiece with the aid of  gold glitter wraps cut on the Cricut.

One final decorative touch were the glass keepers made from Ornate Blossoms Stamps and Thin Cuts.  The decorations didn’t take long to create but they certainly helped set the mood for a fun filled night of feasting.  The photos below show some of the yummies we enjoyed.

The Ornate Blossoms Stamps and Thin cuts retire at the end of this month.  Order yours today if you have had your eye on them – they may sell out before August 31.  Order online for home delivery at http://www.shaunnarichards.closetomyheart.com
