Magical Thin Cuts


Have you seen the new range of Thin Cuts in the CTMH Annual Inspirations Catalogue?  They are not linked to a stamp set and are super versatile for pages and cards.  Today I’m showcasing how good the Stars and Celebrate Thin Cuts look in Glitter paper.  I’m using up the last of my Magical papers.  This collection retires at the end of August.

When cutting Glitter paper  run it through your embossing machine twice.  Then the cuts pop out so easily.  If the shape or word does appear stuck in the frame of the thin cut, poke your piercing tool through one of the holes and it will come out.

To make your cluster of stars stand out  stick them to the black star printed paper and fussy cut around them.  EZ-Dots tape runner can run it across the back of the thin cut and the adhesive shrinks away in the gaps.  A lot quicker than using the glue pen.

This cluster shows what the star looks like without a backing.

CTMH Magical Australasian Blog Hop


Australasian Blog Hop – Magical Collection

Blog Badge

Welcome to the Australasian Magical Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from  Kara’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 Magical Workshop Your Way Collection (G1108) from Close To My Heart.


My layout today is based on  one in the Reflections How To Book (9037) – page 70.  We attended a performance of Matilda the Musical the night before our Close To My Heart Convention in Melbourne.  It was a fabulous show and I wanted a reminder of it in my album.

I love the primary colours in this pack.  It is ideal for masculine pages, school themes and kids events.  The embellishments lend themselves to theme parks, Disney and party photos. It is also perfect for theatre outings! I just love that paper with the cameras on it.

I had already used the words from the sticker sheet on another project so for this layout I simply trimmed the backing sheet and lay the word frame on to contrasting paper.  A few of the coloured sequins either side gives the illusion of a border without the need for a solid piece of paper. The white twine also comes in the Workshop Your Way Kit.  So everything on this layout came from the one pack.  That makes it so easy to set up and clean up.

There are lots of die cuts in the Complements pack and I found several words that perfectly suited this amazing evening.  The PML cut apart sheet in the kit has several journal boxes – so fast and easy to use!

The Magical Workshop Your Way (G1108) 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
