Manor House Creations

Hi there!
With Christmas round the corner I`m already in a Christmas mood ;-)
Today, I have a layout to share with you that I created for Manor House Creations using some of their newest gorgeous flowers. I see Christmas surrounded by beauty and cosiness and these flowers are exactly how I feel round this time of the year. In other words I don`t need to add a christmas starry ;-) flower to my layout to show it`s a Christmas page.....for me it counts how I feel about it....
I used the newest collection from The Scrap Cake "Cozy Xmas" which was simply perfect for my project..... Did you know that Manor House Creations is the official distributor of The Scrap Cake Products in Australia?
Flowers used:
  • Fairy Floss - Soft pink
  • Marguerite - floral
  • Frosted wild rose 
  • Beautiful - rose red

I decorated two of the flowers by adhering a big pearl in the centers and by adding strings of pearls....

Well, I bought lots of tiny cones and I`m adding them to my pages and cards these days (Check ------> HERE)
N.B. I added puffy paint to the cones :-). 
I also added puffy paint to one of the leaves to match the cones. 

The oval frame is a die-cut from Sizzix (Thank you, Corina!!!!!). It was embossed and inked a little bit. I added as a touch the string of pearls.....

You won`t believe it but I bought like hundreds of these cute little bells and I just love adding them to my projects. Here I tried to make a "Xmas-bells-tree" I used the bells and embroidery thread for this purpose....

This corner of my layout WAS very clean till I began:
  • First stamping, using Marianne Designs Winter Clear stamps
  • Then masking with mini chicken wire mask
  • And then adding My Mind`s Eye Rub-ons (the branch and the text).......Love all my rub-on leftovers ;-)

Well, that was all for today! I hope you enjoyed it and I inspired you a little bit.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog!
