A shaped card from Nerrida

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great day! Over at The ScrapCake we are doing some work on a theme about shaped cards this month, so here is my creation.

I used a piece of packaging from a Pink Paislee product, traced around it and then machine stitched around the edge. I created the card front with pink cardstock as my base, using the ‘My Private Happiness’ papers, and then securing it all down using 3D foam to attach it all.

Products used:

Idyllic – pink, Apple Blossoms, Taneisha, Sprinkles – lime, Petite Roses – marshmellow.

Flying Unicorn designer, Tracey Gregory had this to say about her Flower Fantasy layout: “This layout is of my dear niece, Vivien, on Easter day. 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.”

Products: Country Lane- Quaint,  Enchanted, Sprinkles -lime, Shimmers, Christmas Star.

A wintery bird house

Today, we have something vey special to share with you. Our very talented Nerrida has been working her magic, and has created this floral masterpiece. This beautiful birdhouse features lots of Manor House Creations flowers, along with The Scrapcakes  ‘My private hapiness’ collection. Nerrida has added some white acrylic paint to the flowers petals to make the birdhouse look a little more ‘wintery’, but the colours remain pretty and cheerful.

Hello everyone!  For those of you looking for a little something to make for the younger members of the household, perhaps a gift, take a look at this….one of our DT girls JENI, came up with the fabulous idea (and we happen to know that her daughter just LOVED it).

Thankyou Jeni for sharing this with us – definitely inspiring!

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.
