Tammy says, “I love Manor house flowers, there are many different styles and a array of colors to choose from! One of my favorites to use are the “Cutie pies,” they are the perfect little touch! I also love the fact that when I use them, a donation is made for World Vision for the children. Super fun flowers to work with on any project and a wonderful cause to support!”

“From Spring planting in the Northern Hemisphere to harvesting in the Southern, a wheel barrow of blooms will bring a smile to anyone. A perfect way to send off that RAK of Manor House blooms to a friend, with some tea and chocolate nestled inside. A little note, and hidden in one of the package seeds is a gift card.”

Believe it or not my mom took this incredible shot with her phone camera. I knew when I saw it, I wanted to create an elegant layout and these Manor House beauties were just perfect. I really love the layers of fabric and delicate paper and how each petal is reinforced with pliable wire so the blooms can be perfectly positioned on your page.”

Something VERY special for Mum

Hi, and welcome,

Today we have something very special to share with you. Our very talented designer JOANNE BAIN has made this beautiful altered bird house vase, for her Mum for Mothers day, and we are very lucky that she has given us a little sneak peak at it before she gives it to her Mum this Sunday.

Jo explains, ‘I used texture paste, distress ink and glimmermist to alter the bottom and the base of the wine glass. I then twisted brown twine around the stem of the glass to create a stand. I have added a small twiddleybitz birdcage to the inside of the glass and added sphagnum moss to create a natural look. So this is basically a birdcage stand but then with the glass being around the outside of the birdcage I was able to create even more dimension.

I then went about creating a full Manor House Vine. I used florist wire and tape to create the vine. Once the vine was constructed I then spritzed with Coffee Shop glimmer mist. Then I wanted really daffodil yellow flowers so I bleached then rinsed some Lime Cutie Pies to make them really white..and believe me they were white. Once rinsed again and dried, I then spritzed them with Sun Sisters Glimmer Mist. I then attached them to the vine.

Products used: Cutie pies-lime, rose leaves small.

Isnt this just divine. Thank you for sharing with us Jo, and I know your Mum is going to love is as much as we do.

Manor House and The Color Room #108

Posted on

 This month Manor House Creations has joined with the creative talents of the team at The Color Room. For the month of April, Manor House Creations  has been proudly supporting The Color Room team. This is week number four, with some of the girls from our design team as featured guests.

The Color Room is a challenge site started by a group of well known scrappers who “strive to push your creativity through new inspiring colour palettes, sketches and tutorials.”

 Here is this week’s palette #108

DELAINA BURNS has created an adorable page filled with a gala of Manor House beauty. Her sweet niece’s photo is surrounded in the rich textured blooms and hand stitching, giving it a country feel.

Layout “Beauty” by Delaina Burns.

Products used: Frosted wild rose, Mascarpone, Fairy Floss, Grandma’s Garden – antique.

JOANNE BAIN’S soft, feminine layout captures the youthful delight of her daughter and friend. The allure of the Manor House Creations Chiffon flower compliments the feel so beautifully. Jo has colorized the Cutie Pie flowers to match the colour scheme. Her little nest and rose flowers were a handmade gift from a friend.

Layout “Cherish” by Joanne Bain.

Products used: Cutie Pies, Chiffon, small leaves. The Scrap Cake – “My Private Happiness.”

Drop into The Color Room  http://thecolorroom.ning.com/ is see Manor House Creations design team featured and check out the work from the team from The Color Room using Manor House flowers.

Gerry showing us her style.

Gerry always puts such love into her layouts. This is obvious by the way she spends so much time fussy-cutting and layering all the pieces of her projects and here she has shown us once again, the love for her work. This breath-taking layout uses some of our Taneisha flowers, which are proving pretty populat due to how easily they tuck into a flower arrangement to add that extra little something.

Take a look at this masterpiece…

Gerry has actually pulled the Romance – swetehart rose apart to make a smaller rose and The Taneisha are so easy to just tuck into the egdes of other flowers  – they are so delicate with the whispery grass seed stem and transparent leaves.

The Cutie pies are so cute at just 3cm and make the perfect finishing touch to layouts by adding some extra little highlights – great for ‘filler’ flowers.

 ‘Beauty’ by Gerry Van Gent.

Products used: Taneisha, Cutie Pies – lime,  Romance – Sweetheart.
