A Special Keepsake

Posted on

Wendy Smith  one of our recent guest designers from Anna’s Craft Cupboard sent us this truly stunning multi-photo frame.

Wendy created the frame following a challenge from WOW (Words or Whatever) co-ordinator Sandra Staples. Wendy explains, ” I decided that I wanted to make a romantic piece that would co-ordinate with the colours and feel of our bedroom. I kind of have a shabby chic, red and white bedroom, with ornate mirrors, white bedhead and side tables and red and white decorative objects. I thought that doing a shadow box frame with photos of dh and it would then be able to be used a nice centre piece on our book shelf. “

We think Wendy wins the challenge!

 “The MHC flowers were perfect. I misted a couple to co-ordinate, but otherwise, they were perfect!”

Products:  Romance – Sweetheart, Nikita (misted), Marguerite, Christmas Star (misted).

 Thanks Wendy for your gorgeous display using Manor House flowers. I bet it looks stunning in your room.

What a fabulous keepsake to treasure.


If you’ve got something special you created using Manor House Creations products, we’d love to see it.

Manor House and Flying Unicorn Flower Fantasy- Week 3

Posted on

We’re here again to celebrate May, the month of flowers. We want to spread some floral beauty around the world. Throughout May we’re sponsoring the team at Flying Unicorn in their Flower Fantasy celebrations.

From the Flying Unicorn, “The Flying Unicorn is a US based online scrapbook store and kit club that not only carries many of the products you know and love, but also specializes in one of a kind, hard to find papers and products.”

“Manor House has joined with The Flying Unicorn to host a Flower Fantasy during the entire month of May and each week we’ll be posting a challenge in the Flying Unicorn Forums featuring flowers, lots of flowers!  Our creative team and the Manor House creative team will share example projects to inspire your creativity and get you going on the challenges.  Every week a winner will be randomly selected from the challenge entries to win a RAK of Manor House flowers!  How cool is that?”

This is week 3 of the Flower Fantasy celebrations over at Flying Unicorn and this week is all about stepping beyond the boundries of the scrapbooking pages into the realm of altered art and crafts.

Melinda Thompson has created this sensational “Inspirational canvas” using texture paste, shimmerz products, and an assortment of Manor House Creations flowers and leaves. It’s the perfect accompaniment to any scrap room.

Products:  Enchanted -Sweet Dreams, Country Lane, Oak leaves.

Tammy Henderson, one of the Creative Team designers at the Flying Unicorn altered this sweet little box using a variety of Manor House blooms. It’s ready to be filled with treasures. 
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!”

ALDA STEVENS, the owner of Flying Unicorn has created this absolutely stunning wheel barrow filled with Manor House flowers. Here’s what Alda had to say about her project,
“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.”
What a wonderfully shabby, vintage look this has Alda!

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!
