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.

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

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:

Using Manor House Creations products: Papers – Thoughts Wandering ‘Beautiful‘, ‘Sail Away‘ and ‘Elements Die Cuts’. Flowers – ‘Thoughts Wandering Mix Pack’, ‘Oh So Pretty Blue Mix, Springtime, ‘Country Roses Azure Blue and Lemon and Light Green Leaves. Embellishments – ‘Beautiful You Chipboard Words‘ (Sweet), ‘Country Estate Chipboard Words‘ (Heart), Wood Elements Heart Buttons, Wood Elements Flower Buttons and Cotton Tags

The soft blues of the Thoughts Wandering Mix Pack, the Oh So Pretty Blue Mix and the Country Roses Azure Blue work beautifully together and the yellow Country Roses bring a soft contrast to the mix:

SONY DSCThe new Cotton Tags add a fun new embellishment to your creations and the Wood Element Buttons are pretty left in their natural state or are easy to paint as I have done here:

SONY DSCThe Thoughts Wandering Elements Die Cuts are perfect to add layers and dimension to your page and all the hard work is done for you – just push them out of the page and stick them to your 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 :)
