A Canvas by Cathy

Hi Cathy here, with a canvas to share.  I was inspired to create this canvas whilst playing with one of my Prima Doll stamps.  I loved the full skirt on the stamp and was trying to jazz it up and create some texture.

Classy and Fabulous Canvas DTI started with some lace, and decided to cutt the pink sunflowers and the larger white romance flowers in half for a scallop effect to create the fullness of a ball gown.

Album covers & ornate frames by Elena

Today we have a very pretty selection of coordinated album covers from the talented Elena. each one uses one of our very popular ORNATE FRAMES, showing how quick and easy they are to use, yet also versatile.



This one has used the SCALLOP – WHITE frame and Elena has altered it to suit. All our Ornate Frames can be altered & coloured.


She has made this smaller notebook to co-ordinate – so cute.


This one below uses the GOTHIC – WHITE frame.  GirlCover


This last one uses the GOTHIC – BLACK frame – so quick and easy to use, no altering needed.




Please try them – if you don’t own a die cutter machine, or even if you do, we know you’ll love them!

Welcome and thanks for dropping by today.  You may be here to check out Elena’s beautiful album cover which she has created in some gorgeous subtle colours. Lets take a look…


Elena loves to create albums in this notebook size and its as easy as covering a book with fabric or paper then adding the elements that you would use on a scrapbook page or OTP.


Here she has started with a lace piece to use as a tie & bow to keep the album closed when on display.



Products used: Tiffany floral mix, Tea roses – soft gold.

We’d love to see your own version. Send it in to so we can share it here.

Home decor idea from Nerrida.

Hey everyone..welcome to the MHC blog.

I was lucky enough to visit & have a play at the Kasiercraft store in Robina, near Brisbane a few month ago and had  lovely time there with some of the girls. I took along some MHC flowers and had a go at making one of their fabulous MDF wall plaques. I loved the colours and it now takes pride of place on my piano opposite my front door – making everyone feel welcome.

OTP Christmas by Cathy

Posted on

Hi Ladies,

Christmas is almost upon us, and at this time of the year I like to create a few special OTP Christmas projects to decorate my home and give as gifts.  I am always on the lookout for items to alter and recently I purchased this rustic metal heart hanging at a gift store.

MHC Christmas OTP - Peace Love & Joy

I love the mini glitter roses as they are perfect to add some sparkle to your Christmas creations.  To alter my heart I used the wire from the glitter mini roses to attach them by twining around the frame, then wrapped the left over metal stem around a paintbrush to curl.

I decided to use the new large Poinsettias as my main flower embellishment, but I wanted a contrast to the white glitter mini roses, so I pulled out the yellow stamens and misted the flowers with scarlet glimmermist to add a bit more sparkle.  I then replaced the yellow stamens with some green ones to match in with my Christmas colours.

MHC Christmas OTP closie 1

I backed my heart with paper, embellished with some Kaisercraft collectables and a few charms with I altered with Viva Inca Gold paste and finished off with a bow.

MHC Product Used:  large poinsettia, glitter mini rosed – red

Thanks so much for stopping by.

An altered album cover from Elena

Elena is not only brilliant with mixed media projects but she sews as well! Very talented..and how lucky are we that she is on the MHC team and can bring you goodies like this to inspire you. Let’s take a closer look.


This is the Album Cover. It is quite for a sewing project at a size of  12*12, made of linen with lace trims and tulle. SO pretty! Let’s see some of the detail.


Such beautiful hues of purples & blues with a touch of teal or aqua thrown in. Makes a very pretty, almost dreamy colour combination.
