Feature frames & DIY wedding invitations

Hello again. Today we wanted to show you one of our fabulous new products called FEATURE FRAMES which may now be in your local store.


These frames come in 4 designs and were designed with both scrappers and card-makers in mind and they are totally versatile. Today we’ll focus on the card-makers and show you a few ideas on how to make either your own Wedding invitations OR how to make a card for a wedding you may need to attach to a wedding gift. Hand-made cards are always so much more precious.

This first card is fairly straight forward and uses the NOUVEAU feature frame as a background. All these cards are made on Twiddleybitz card packs which we stock.



Card by Nerrida Mitchell

Products used:

Papers: Country Estate – New Day

Embellishments: Nouveau Feature frames, Wood Elements – hearts.

This next cards actually has a slide-off centre piece (with the rose and ribbon attached) so you can slide it off to reveal the opening invitation. Really quick and easy to do once you have a template, you just mass produce them.

Products used:

Flowers: tea rose – ivory

Embellishments: Romantique feature frame.

(Please note, this card does not use Twiddleybitz card bases but is the same size)

And this card also uses the Romantique feature frame but this time it’s placed over the top of a piece of aqua cardstock to really make the pattern stand out & give it a small elegant border. The gold bow just adds that extra special glamorous touch.

And this final card adds a touch of glamour in another way, by misting the feature frame with some gold glimmermist – we used Apple. These feature frames can be altered by colour so easily! Again this card has a slide-off piece to reveal the invitation inside.

Heritage cards

HI everyone, Just a quick post as we are flat-out with filling orders for our wonderful customer stores. We recently sold a beautiful HARITAGE CARD KIT at the Brisbane expo and have been getting requests for pictures of the cards. Finally we have found the box with them in (phew!) and have taken some photos for you. They are fairly straight forward and should be easy to copy if you need to, or just use them for inspiration.

Have fun!

Thoughts Wandering – Masculine LO by Cathy Cafun

Posted on

Hi Everyone,

Cathy here, sharing a LO created with the beautiful new “Thoughts Wandering”  collection.  As these papers lend themselves to either masculine or feminine projects, I decided to create a masculine LO, instead of my usual girly pages.

Take Me Away

I love this photo of my husband enjoying a day at the beach fishing, and thought it would be perfect for the beautiful seaside inspired papers from this collection.

MHC - Take Me Away - blog

The background was created using the beige side of the Postcards pp and framed with the blue side of the Beautiful pp.  I used various mixed media techniques to alter the background in blue and brown tones to tie in with the colours from the papers.

With various sized circular punches I punched out some circles from a few of the other papers from the collection to frame my photo and also used a couple of the diecuts from the elements sheet.

The words on the Take Me Away pp were perfect for my title.  I just fussy cut around them and attached them with foam tape.  I even managed to tuck in an imagine flower in blueberry in amongst my layers.  The oatmeal and brown imagine flowers are also a perfect match for this collection.

Inspiration from Melinda

Posted on

As some of you may know I am on the Creative Team at Flying Unicorn.  Flying Unicorn are major sponsors to the challenge site – CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration! So for the month of May the Creative Team have been invited to be Special Detectives. I was given this Case File No. and couldn’t wait to add lots of MH flowers to my layout.


The Case File looks like this:



My take on this challenge :

“Hello Little One”

Sigh…I am still scrapping birth photos of my little boy from 8 months ago…wonder if I will ever catch up!

I am using a mixture of papers here…some really old Sass for my base paper, Maggie Holmes Crate paper and Jodie Lee Prima papers.

Lots of gorgeous flowers from Manor House which have all been altered in different ways and the “Love” Chipboard is from 2Crafty which I have covered in a few different colours from Shimmerz.



My Testimony….I used the Inspiration word “Wish” as a stepping point for my journalling.  Don’t you just love the new “Felt Doilies”.. I have used a gorgeous pink one from the Beautiful You Collection as part of my layers behind my photo.





Evidence:  Butterflies, Flowers (of course!) Swirls, Watercolour Effect, Bokeh Effect on Photo & Tiny Brads
