Today I am sharing a layouts created using mainly PML Cut Apart cards from the paper pack.  Can you spot them?  There are also 3 zip strips – have you found them?

The juniper dots border is made of 1/4″ strips rather than using a full backing page.  Lay the vertical strips first then mitre the corners of the remaining strips and glue over the vertical ones.

This decorative panel was made using two of the 6″ x 4″ PML Cut Apart cards.  Keep one whole and fussy cut the other one to create embellishments you can layer with foam tape.  It doesn’t take long but looks great.

These flowers were fussy cut from scraps of the decorative paper.  The cork embellishments finish the cluster off perfectly.

If you love this collection make sure you order it from your consultant ASAP.  It retires from the catalogue at the end of this month.  Don’t have a CTMH consultant?  Head over to my website to place an order for delivery within Australia.

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
