There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.


It is our absolute pleasure to welcome the incredibly talented JASMINE SHEA to the MHC Blog as this months guest designer.


We asked Jasmine to tell us a little about herself.

‘I am a mother and wife to 4 wonderful children and an equally wonderful husband who supports my “hobby” but just doesn’t “get it” .

I began my journey in Scrapbooking in 2006 when my friend Mel and I went along to a crop night organised by a kinder Mum.  And like all of us, I never looked back.  I have no idea what I would be doing now if we never went along.

I love this craft and I have been so blessed in the past 2 years to meet so many fabulous girls on-line, at retreats and also to be a part of some wonderful Design Teams.  My style has changed considerably over time and I love the challenge of finding new techniques and ideas to use on each page. At the moment I love using texture, stitching, paint and mists.  A page doesn’t feel complete unless I have used one of them.

“Stepping Out of the Box” for me, is creating pages about myself.  I don’t have a lot of self-confidence and I don’t particularly like photos of myself, although the more pages I create, the more I am becoming to enjoy it, just a tiny bit.  I am sure the children will love to look back one day and read about the person I was.

Jasmine has used some of our flowers, to create these wonderful layouts to share with us.

First up, this beautiful layout titled ‘All about marriage’, which tells of an adorable little conversation between her 2 children. Take note of how Jasmine has used the MHC packaging on her layout.


Flowers: Beauty, Prior rose-vanilla, Papers:The Scrap cake-One moment in time.

Next, this eye catching layout titled ‘Boys will be boys’, shows that our flowers can be just as stunning on a boy layout.



Flowers: Nikita, Marguerite-mocha, Fairy floss. Paper: The Scrap Cake-Spring awakening.

And then this soft, pretty feminine layout, with just the right amount of ‘shabby’.



Flowers: Wild frosted rose. Papers: The Scrap Cake: One moment in time.

And last, but certainly not least is this gorgeous creation.



Flowers: Prior rose-chocolate, Plain Janes, The tropics.

Thankyou Jasmine for being our guest designer for March, and for sharing these wonderful creations with us. You are truly a talented lady.
