Magical Australasian Blog Hop


Welcome to our Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop featuring this months featured pack called Workshops Your Way™ Magical Scrapbooking Kit.

If you have arrived here from Megan Lawrence at Crop Craft Create then you are in the right place. If you landed here another way, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. Follow the links, check out all the amazing ideas and eventually you'll come right back here to where you started.

We are all creating with the Workshops Your Way™ Magical Scrapbooking Kit.
This kit is featured by Close to My Heart in July and is until the end of the current Seasonal Expressions Ideas Book (so will be retiring at the end of August 2016). NOT LONG!!

There are pages, cards and Picture My Life layouts featured in this pack. I made the pages as directed and cut the cards and then I mixed them up a bit by changing around the backs and fronts of some of the papers to create different and unique cards. Below shows what you can do by varying how you piece the papers onto the cards. 




I really love this stamp set called Fairytale Birthday - I can see myself using it lots and lots. 


The next thing I did with the pages was complete them and then continue with photos I had in the series, to make this page below. 

I had lots of photos of a ball fun pit air-cannon area at Dream World on the Gold Coast so made a page using them. 

I dotty paper on the bottom of the page is the 4x6 picture my life cards from the pack that I cut in half longways so they are 6 x 2 inches. Then I used the Zip Strips and one of the Picture my life card thats "love this" with a strip cut off the bottom and stuck on the other page. 

To cover the joins on the pages I used Honey Cardstock and Stamped black ink on White Daisy Cardstock using the Amusement Park stamp set, I adhered them with 3-D Foam Tape. I stamped the tickets as journalling boxes and will write in them later. 





I was really happy with the dots for the plastic ball cannon area because it suited them so perfectly. I finished it off with a few of the Magical Complements 
for a little bit of dimension. 

This month is also the LAST MONTH OF the Annual Expressions Catalogue. Go to mwebsite or your consultants website to see all the exciting products available BEFORE THEY'RE GONE FOREVER!! (yes I'm being dramatic - I don't want anyone to miss out!!!). 

Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest project, I hope you get inspired. I'm really interested to hear what you think about it, so I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop on our Australasian Blog Hop which is Lauren Moore - CTMH Craftings.
  Come back to see me again soon.

  2. Nice how you showed that with the one idea for a card, you can make a variety of different cards just by varying the placement of the papers and stamped image. Lovely layout as well
