Guest designer – Helen Tilbury

It is with the utmost pleasure that we welcome the incredibly talented


as our guest designer.


‘Hi there!  My name is Helen Tilbury & you can find my blog at, where I blog under the name of SCRAP ADDICT.

I’ve been scrapbooking for 9 years now, online for 4 and creating things for my whole life!  I live in Durban, South Africa, with my husband, 4 kids

& 3 cats.  It’s challenging being a busy crafter here as I have to buy 90% of what I use online and import it myself but that’s a whole other fun side

to this creative life.  I’m on various Design Teams right now, Les Papiers de Pandore paper & stamp manufacturer from France, My Creative Scrapbook

Kit Club in America, Purple Pumpkin Embellishment manufacturer in Australia, Berry71Bleu tags on Etsy, Scrap Friends online store in Brisbane &

Scrapmatts chipboard team, also based in Australia.  I spend my mornings creating,blogging & working in my studio and my afternoons in my car

taking & fetching kids from their extra lessons and school activities, with a lot of waiting in between.  Thank Goodness for mobile phones & e mail!

I do a lot of that from my car!!  Thanks so much for having me here at Manor House Creations.  I’m a complete flower junkie & love adding

them to many of my layouts, not just the ones with girls in them!  Flowers are versatile & I love the dimension they add not to mention the shabby touch’.

Here are a few of Helens stunning creations, all featuring a wonderful selection of Manor House Creations flowers



Helen has an incredible talent for making our flowers look amazing, even on the most masculine of pages.

Helen is just as at home creating flowery, feminine pieces

The ‘winters song – coffee’ flower takes centre stage on this wonderful layout.

And again, the Winters song flower, this time ‘Cyan’ makes a stunning addition to Helens layout.

We would like to thank Helen for sharing her wonderful creations with us. Her work has been an inspiration to many scrapbookers, both in Australia and overseas. We hope she has inspired you today.
