Welcome to the CTMH Australasian Fresh Air Blog Hop. This hop features the artwork of some amazing and talented women from across Australia.

 
If you arrived from Doris’ blog you are in the right place. If this is your first time on a blog hop simply read on, enjoy my creations and maybe share your response in the comments. Then you click on the link at the end of this post and it will take you to the next blog and so on and so on. Easy and fun! Best part- you can see lots of different projects you can create with Close To My Heart’s Fresh Air collection! When you land back here, you are done and it’s time to hit the scrapbook room for some crafting fun.
The Fresh Air Workshop Kit (G1152) is a perfect fit for my photos of Alaska. Order yours at www.shaunnarichards.closetomyheart.com.au
The Fresh Air collection is available until the end of August 2018. Buy it as a full kit or purchase individual items.

Today’s layout is inspired by Pinterest. This design lets my photos stand out. The forests in Alaska are amazing and photos can’t capture the feeling of being in one but lining all my images in a row helps make the ‘largeness’ imaginable.

Decorating the banners under each photo was lots of fun.  PML Cut Apart sheet left overs from making up the Workshop Your Way layouts were a great source for different patterned papers, the journal boxes and the pine cone images. The Fresh Air card making stamps and thin cuts set was perfect for these photos too.  Doesn’t the Gold heat embossing look great on Nutmeg cardstock?  Be warned, you need to control your urge to keep adding bits to the banners as that will detracted from the photos.

 


I do need to finish the journaling – I can’t remember what made the mound under the tree in the last photo and hubby is on a long haul flight so I can’t ask him!!

The Fresh Air collection is available to purchase from your Close To My Heart consultant. A list of products used in my layout appears at the end of this post. Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant. If you don’t have a consultant, you can order online through my website .

 
I’d love you to leave a comment for me before you go. Then click on the underlined link and move on to Vandra’s blog, Vandra’s Virtual Classroom, to see the project she has designed for you. I’m sure it will pique your interest.

 
Happy Scrapping,

Magical Thin Cuts

Standard

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.

A list of the products used for this project follows.  All items are available to order on my website www.shaunnarichards.closetomyheart.com.au
