Winter blues

Winter is upon us here in Australia, and boy, dont we know it.

 Im not really a winter person, and much prefer the warmer months, but I do love snowy, wintery photos, and often wish we got more snow here in Australia, simply for the photo opportunities it offers.

Our design team were asked to create a winter layout, featuring the colours BLUE AND WHITE.  These colours would have to be my favourite way to scrap wintery photos. And our talented designers have outdone themselves with these snowy, wintery wonders.

Karen has created this beautiful layout, featuring the brand new, winter release flowers from Manor House Creations. You can see the full range here

She says: ‘I adore blue and white winter layouts, its a bit difficult here in Australia to get those gorgeous white snowy photos, as we dont get much snow here, but Ive scrapped a cute photo of my son Jack, when he was just 2. He loves to be outside playing more than anything, and in the winter months, on those freezing cold days when he couldnt go out, he would sit at the window, wishing he could be outside. I absolutely adore the new release flower for Manor House Creations. The WINTER SONG collection are just perfect for this style of layout, they look like they have snow on them, you have to see them to believe them, they are my favourite flowers ever!’.

MONIKA also gets lots of snow where she lives. Her layout features our lovely ‘Christmas star’ and ‘Fairy floss’ flowers. And are’nt they the perfect way to showcase these fun family photos. We also love the glittery makeover Monika has given to the Manor House Creations Rose leaves.
