A TSC kitchen share

Hi everyone! As you know, we are the Australian & New Zealand distributors for The ScrapCake. So we love to share some of the projects that Nerrida does for her Scrapcake Design Team position. Today, she has shared with us this gorgeous shopping list idea. I’d love this hanging on my fridge!

Lots of fussy-cutting here…

and some gorgeous MHC flowers….

It’s such a simple idea but brightens up any kitchen fridge. Nerrida just used an old shopping list and took the backing board off it, covered it and re-used the magnets off the back. How easy is that? You could give it a go.

Hope you enjoyed this inspiration and please remember to send your OTPs and layout in to designteam@manorhousecreations.com for us to share!

Gift ideas for Mother’s day

It’s almost Mother’s day, and I don’t know about you, but I find it so hard to find that ‘perfect’ gift for my Mum. She doesn’t like us to spend too much money, but I want to give her something special, to show her how much we love and appreciate her. A handmade gift or card is the perfect solution. It is such a wonderful and personal way to say thank you to your Mum. The talented design team have come up with some gorgeous ideas to help you with deciding on what to give to your Mum this Mothers day.

Firstly, LINDA has made this stunning little gift box. How special would your Mum feel to receive this.

Its time to party

Our latest flower release ‘Party time’ is bright, glittery and all things fun, just perfect for creating birthday layouts, gifts and cards, if fact its perfect for any type of party. Our team of talented designers have created some wonderful examples of how they have used the ‘Party time’ collection. I hope they inspire you to pull out those party photos, grab some of our flowers, and create.

JOANNE BAIN has created these gorgeous little gift boxes. Here she tells us all about them,

‘I have created a raspberry & liquorice cupcake topped with a gorgeous hot pink Birthday blossom and then made a super sweet goodie box topped again with another hot pink Birthday blossom. They both have a small tag that pulls out so that you can write your birthday wishes or anything else you wish to write. To give these flowers a bit of extra dimension I have placed small square 3D dot under each petal.’
