INSTRUCTIONS:

2. Trim the piece of GARDEN paper so it fits just inside the white chalk border and adhere.

3. Mat you photo with cream cardstock and dot around the edges with gold liquid pearls if you have them, or machine stitch with cream cotton.

4.Trim a piece of the NOW & THEN – TREES paper to approx 1 inch wider on all sides larger than your matted photo, then mat this with black cardstock or the reverse side of the TOGETHER paper. Attach your matted photo to the centre of the matted TREES piece of paper. Attach the whole thing to the centre of your page.

5. Fussy-cut the floral design from the ‘Garden’ paper cutting the rose as a separate piece. Attach to the top left of your photo (see layout picture for correct placement) with 3D foam dots.

6. Glue on your flower arrangement starting with the largest CHANTILLY flower, tucking the other into it as shown.

7. Fussy-cut the banner from the TODAY paper and attach to the bottom left of the photo with 3D foam dots where shown. Glue on the 3 flowers shown.

8. Trim a 1 inch piece of the reverse side of the TOGETHER paper and punch it with a lace-edged punch, then attach to the very top edge of the page. Use glue to add 2 buttons with string tied in the holes.

9. Cut the ‘remember’ word from the same paper into a flag shape and attach with 3D foam to the top left corner edge of the page.

Kit Instructions coming soon..

HI everyone.  Just a quick note to say that not all kits we have sold at the show include instructions (which is reflected in the price of the kit), however we hope to put instructions up here (with a link in the sidebar under KITS,  for some of them very soon. Having only 6 days to prepare for the show, saying we were pressed for time is an understatement! (LOL) so the kits were a bit of a rush.

Cathy made this striking red & white layout using the ‘New day’ paper as her background.

Blog It's A Beautiful Day - Country Estate

We just love the doodled circles she has drawn on making a feature of the paper design.

Notice the wood frame…looks great huh? And she’s altered it…great idea.

Blog It's a Beautiful Day-closie 1

Upon a closer look, you can see she has used our Country estate Blossoms in layers and added stamens. These Blossoms are such a staple product and out team love them as ‘filler’ flowers.

We are so excited to have her back! I think she was probably our mixed media queen right from the start and we’ve loved every minute of her presence on the MHC team. How lucky we are to have her back again. We are such a friendly bunch here and we love our girls.

Of course, it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t start off with one of Melinda’s AMAZING creations, which always take my breath away. As will this one…her gorgeous new little boy is growing so fast! He’s crawling!!! Already!!! Time goes so quick….

Now isn’t this layout just precious as….
