Mixed Media layout – Cherish

Hello everyone. Tiffany here. I have a layout to share with you.

Tiffanylayout2

I used lots of different mediums to create this layout. I love brown tones as you can see here. I love to use sprays and paints to color the flowers to match my projects.

Beautiful You Inspiration from Melinda Thompson

Posted on

Hello to you all :)

I have recently completed a project using the very gorgeous “Beautiful You” paper collection as well as lots of stunning blooms! This paper range begs to be fussy cut so I cut out some of the flowers in the paper and arranged them on my layout. I used plain white cardstock for the base…which is so unlike me…but these colours look amazing and so crisp against a white background.

“Time Flies”

Some closes ups…..love the hot pinks and bright yellows together.  I have mixed a matched flowers from new and past releases, the different sizes and styles look amazing together.  I have also used a Felt Doiley in Hot Pink and a lace flower (Lullaby) to add layers behind my photo.

Love these chipboard frames.  I have altered them by priming with Gesso first then adding some Shimmerz Inklingz in Pink a Boo and then while it was still wet I sprinkled it with some Shimmerz Enamalz in Gold Digger…its so sparkly.. :) Then for added interest I added on some cute little chipboard hearts up the side.

Country Estate Collection – Your Sweet Smile

Posted on

 

Hi everyone, Cathy here, sharing a LO created using the beautiful Country Estate collection.  This paper collection has a matching sheet of diecuts, and also has a range of gorgeous flowers and chipboard pack to tie in with the papers.

YOUR SWEET SMILE

To create this LO I used both sides of the New Day pp and punched some strips of the green side of the Birdsong pp, then layered them to create my background.

MH - Country Estate - Sweet Smile rs

I have framed the photograph with a mix of flowers combined with the black rosette ornate frame which I cut up and tucked in amongst the flowers.

The midnight frilly roses were altered by pulling out the centre bud and replacing with a fabric brad.

Love the Ornate Frames.  Here I have used the roses frame which I have cut into smaller pieces. I have kept the label frame section which can be used by tucking under some pp to cover the cut edges.

LO by Cathy Cafun – Beautiful Smile

Posted on

Hi everyone, Cathy here with a LO to share created with some of the flowers from the Winter 2014 Collection and the new felt doilies.   The bones of this LO was created a while ago and was the inspiration for a Canvas class that I taught.  I have had it sitting in my pile of projects for a while and thought I would finish it off using some of the gorgeous flowers from the Winter 2014 Collection.

Love Your Beautiful Smile

MHC - Beautiful Smile rs

These pretty girly papers were a perfect match for the gorgeous chantilly lace flower and country roses.

To get the most out of your felt doilies when layering, don’t use the whole doily.  Just cut off the section needed and save the rest for another project.

WELCOME BACK JO BAIN!

Yep, you heard it here first…she’s BACK!!

Jo

And don’t we love her and her amazing creations. We are super thrilled to have Jo back after having a break – she was working so hard for Kaiser, but now she’s all ours again and her stunning style is here to showcase our BEAUTIFUL YOU papers. Just take a look…if you’re not inspired by this then you must be asleep! (LOL).

Here’s what Jo has to say about this gorgeous layout:

Joanne-Bain_MHC_Beautiful-You_Layout1

I created this layout with the gorgeous new “Beautiful You” Collection. When I first saw these papers I thought they were absolutely stunning and were screaming at me to be fussy cut. So off I went with my scissors and started cutting.

 Joanne-Bain_MHC_Beautiful-You_Layout1_detail

 

Because the pattern on this paper was simply beautiful on its own I created this page using the collection on its own. I did not feel it needed any extra flowers added to it.

 I cut 2 Ornate Frames in half and only used the top peak pieces and tuck them in behind my layers to help frame the photo.

Thoughts Wandering Collection – Sweet Heart

Hi! Sonia here. If you couldn’t make it to the Scrapbook Expo in Brisbane at the beginning of the month then you missed a wonderful opportunity to see all of the fabulous Manor House Creations products in one place. The stand just looked beautiful and I’m sure all the ladies that were shopping had a hard time choosing what to buy – I know I was in flower heaven when I stood in the middle of the stand! One of the collections on display was the gorgeous new ‘Thoughts Wandering’. Manor House Creations makes it easy for you to co-ordinate your pages with beautiful papers and matching flowers and other embellishments. I had a play with the Thoughts Wandering ‘Beautiful’ paper which makes a stunning background for any project:

A bit of Puppy Love – Beautiful You Collection

The new Beautiful You Collection from Manor House Creations is absolutely beautiful and stole my heart as soon as I saw it! I thought the gorgeous mix of soft pinks and yellows would be perfect for this photo of Alex and our new puppy Tyson. I’ve used the ‘In My Thoughts’ paper which has a soft pink reverse side which I used to layer under my photo:

Beautiful you - In my thoughts

Products used: Papers – Beautiful You ‘In My Thoughts’. Flowers – Oh So Pretty Pink Mix, Country Roses Lemon, Layout Pack Natural (large yellow flower) and Light Green Leaves. Embellishments – Felt Doilies Country Estate, Wood Elements Flower Buttons and Heart Buttons, Cotton Tags and Chipboard Words Beautiful You (Love)

A little dab of Gesso on the Wood Elements helps them blend with the colour tones on the page:

The new Cotton Tags are a fabulous way to add texture to your page:

The layout actually uses two pieces of the In My Thoughts paper. One as the background and the other sheet has been cut up to add dimension and texture to the page. First I cut out the floral images I required which were placed on the top left hand side of the photo. Next I cut different size pieces of the reverse side of the paper to create the base of my photo. The first layer was then covered with Gesso and painted using Twinkling H2O’s. A larger piece of the paper was then used as the matt for my photo.

Happy creating :)

Thoughts Wandering Cards by Melinda Thompson

Posted on

Hi there everyone,

 

I am back today to share with you all some sweet cards I created using the gorgeous Manor House Creations “Thoughts Wandering” paper range as well as their beautiful flowers.  I haven’t added any sentiments to the card as I will wait until they need to be used :)

For this card I have used cut some strips from the “Beautiful” paper and added some Silks Acrylic Paint in Ginger Flower to the background along with some water to spread it out.  Then I added my layers. How super pretty is that gorgeous pink lace flower!

 

 

 

Products Used:

Thoughts Wandering Papers
Vinette – Chestnut
Ornate Frame
French Lace (Pink)
Gelato – Cherry
Country Roses – Cerise

 

Oh I love the chipboard bike with that cute heart shaped seat…just adorable, I couldn’t wait to use it! I have painted the bike in Silks Acrylic Glaze in Iridescent Gold and then touched it up in places with some more Silks Acylic Glaze in Solar Gold as well as some glitter.  I have also used in my background a Nouveae White feature frame which I have added some gorgeous Twinkling H20’s to it for a water coloured effect. 

 

 

Products Used:

Thoughts Wandering Papers
Nouveae White Feature Frame
Gelato Cherry
Rustic
Cuties Pies – Orange
Thoughts Wandering Blossoms
Wooden Elements – Bicycle

 

This was a super quick card featuring two different frames layering one on top of the other. After I added my base papers I got the first frame which is the Botanical Frame, spritzed with some Shimmerz in Pink Stilettos and immediately turned it over onto some paper towel and pressed it down. Then I added the second ornate frame and just added some glitter to the border of it.  I also ripped the end of the Denim Rosette and let it naturally curl for a shabby look.

Family – Thoughts Wandering Collection

Hi , Sonia posting here today using the amazing Thoughts Wandering collection. One of the promises we made our girls is that when we moved house we would get a puppy. Well he is here and boy has he made his presence felt in a very short time! The girls have just fallen in love with Tyson and it’s fabulous to see a strong bond developing between them already. It might even give me an excuse to try more boyish pages!  For this layout I’ve used the reverse side of the ‘Postcards’ paper. Don’t forget to check out the reverse sides of all of the Manor House Creations papers as they are just a fabulous as the ‘fronts’!!
