  Yes I'm back again with another video! A quick tut on creating your own floral vine.
I've cut and pasted my blog post from Manor Hosue Creations blog here show you a unique way to add Manor House flowers to your layouts by creating your own beautiful, handcrafted floral vines. You'll be surprised at how easy they are to make and what a gorgeous embellishment they are for your pages. 
Following is a list of the supplies you'll need.

Manor House Creations flowers and leaves- 3 Whimsy flowers (from the Winter 2012 Collection), 3 large leaves, 2 small leaves.
Other: Florist wire - fine, Florist tape, adhesive.
Tools: Small pliers, wooden stick or tool for shaping wire.
Here's the fabulous vine you'll create.

These lovely Whimsy flowers from the new Winter collection make a stunning vine. You can easily divide them to make smaller flowers and buds.
I've used  just three Whimsy flowers, with three large leaves and two small.

Creating a flower bud.
Here I removed the outer layers of the Whimsy flower, using the base layer of petals to create this smaller budding flower.

What's been happening in your life? Couldn't think of another title for my post on this late Sunday arvo.
Tell me something interesting that you've been up to. I'd love to hear.

Here's a new layout I created for Manor House Creations to show off their new Winter 2012 collection.
"Paris Dreaming"

 Well I've mentioned before how I'm always fiddling around with my los even after they're finished. Here's the final one. I started with a b/w pic but I think I deleted the colour too much and then just abandoned the whole b/w idea and put the colour back in.

These new flowers really are the most beautiful collection I've seen. I love all the gorgeous textures.

 Here's the soft pretty Rosettes.

My girl just before the braces went on.

Love these gorgeous bling corners from Flourish With a Bling.
They have a fabulous range of bling embellies.
And a cute card for my sis who's been having a very hard time but is off on a holiday today.

 Hopefully she felt in the holiday spirit after getting this.

I used the Rosettes again but cut them up for the water. Those cute Beach huts and vine are also from Flourish With a Bling.


It's the middle of the month so that's time again for a new reveal at OUAS. Pop on over here to see some amazing work from the rest new design team. They're such talented scrappers.
And the added bonus is the fabulous prizes to be won.

Thanks for popping in and wishing you a wonderful week,

Thanks to my dear friend Gabi for softening my edges. lol
