Gift ideas for Christmas

We have a HUGE collection of wonderful, handmade Christmas gift ideas to share with you today. Gift giving can get a little out of hand at Christmas time, with people spending large amounts of money on impersonal gifts for their loved ones. I personally much prefer to receive a hand made gift, that  someone has made, specifically with me in mind. Below, we have a assortment of lovely, and relatively inexpensive ideas, that you can easily make at home, using a few bits and pieces from your scrap stash, and of course, lots of stunning Manor House Creations flowers.

Did you have a Cozy Christmas?

Wow, Christmas is over, and how quickly it comes and goes!  So now the time to get those photos done and start making memories. What would be more perfect than the Cozy Christmas papers from The ScrapCake? Here’s what some of our DT girls have done with them and of course, they have used our Manor House flowers as well, and how divine do these look?

A Layout from Gerry

Hi  friends!

Gerry`s here with my latest layout using gorgeous new flowers and using the newest collection from The Scrap Cake – the beautiful “Cozy Xmas”.

Flowers used:

  • Fairy floss – Soft pink
  • Marguerite – floral
  • Frosted wild rose (N.B. I used only the branch with leaves!)
  • Beautiful – rose red

I decorated the Fairy Floss flowers by adding pearls.

I also added puffy paint to one of the leaves to match the puffy paint I added to the tiny cones.

And a few more close-ups….

I did some stamping, masking and I used rub-ons to decorate this corner….

I used mini bells and embroidery thread to make this mini “Xmas tree”.

Hope you enjoyed my layout today!

Introducing the versatile Cozy Christmas

Well we always love what Karola Witczak (from The ScrapCake) has to offer us and once again, she has stunned us with her beautiful Christmas collection. 

So, here’s what our DT girls did having some fun playing with the Cozy Christmas collection and they also feature some of our BRAND NEW Summer collection flowers.

One of our Christmas flowers called ‘SHIMMERS’ accompanied by ‘FAIRY FLOSS’ & ‘CUTIE PIE’ in cream. NERRIDA has misted her flower here to co-ordinate with the leaves and you’ll notice the shimmery flowers centres – so perfect for Christmas as well.
