New MHC Country estate colletion

We are sooo excited here at MHc to show you our newest release of papers and embellishments used on these projects. This collection was designed around family, home & garden using the bright and bold primary colours plus that trend-setting lime colour that is popular lately. Let’s take a look at what our DT have been creating featuring this new collection.

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.

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.

Cathy had also used elements of our Die cut sheet – the moths, flowers and leaves.

A Canvas by Cathy

Posted on

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.

canvas closie 1- dtThe white cheval frame was inked in black, backed with a printed quote, and embellished with flowers.  I altered the flowers with pink glimmermist and diamond dust to add a bit of sparkle.

Products Used:  Ornate Cheval Frame white,Tea Roses black, Idyllic white, Sunflowers pink, Romance – Promises, Teeny Weenies, Cottage Garden Birdsong.

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!

Album cover by Elena Olinevich

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.
