Tags and precious memories

First up I want to say a huge thank you to everyone on all the really sweet comments on my last project. Congrats to Helen, who was our winner for the Ruby Rock-it/Scrap FX blog hop.

Today I have some shares from the ManorHouse Creations blog. First I made a set of matching tags using similar flowers in different colours. The tags have a little tent style stand on the back to help them to stand up on their own as a display. I have also used an ornate frame that I coloured with mist, and some sentiment banners.




Next up is a layout from our ski trip to New Zealand. We were so lucky to be staying right on the the lake with some snowy mountains making a really nice background for some pics of the kids, especially Amelie for her birthday.





MHC products used: Felicity layout pack, Glitz card pack, Leaves.


Thanks for looking.

Blog hopping with Ruby Rock-It/Bella! Fundamentals and Scrap FX

Welcome to a very FUN and creative next few days here as we the Ruby Rock-It designers join Scrap FX's amazing talent in a 2 day blog hop!

 I am so lucky to be on a team with so many awesome partner companies. This month we are pairing up with Australian chipboard company Scrap FX (Yay for Australian companies).

And now let's take a peek at our prizes!!!

Our beautiful NEW Summer release: At Last papers and embellishments! 

And a beautiful assortment of Scrap FX's gorgeous laser cut chipboard fun! 

Scroll down for details on how you could be a winner.

Now, onto a little project I created for this hop. This started out as a plain white photo frame with the word family attached. I have used papers from My Romance with a little Arcadia thrown in, along with lots of pieces of Scrap FX chipboard, which has been gessoed, misted and embossed. 

See the co-ordinating trim from Mother Nature!

Notice how the chipboard piece has a fern pattern?? Perfect for our New Zealand holiday pics.
I love the intricacy of the chipboard title.

Snow fun with Spellbinders for Down Under Direct.

Here's a recent share from the Down Under Direct blog.  I've combined Bo Bunny papers with a few Spellbinder dies in white. Spellbinders do have snowflake dies, but I don't have them just yet, so I chose this intricate die to represent the snow theme, without being quite so literal. They have a tiny hint of sparkle added to them too.

Some newness from Ruby Rock-It

Here's a little something I put together using the new My Romance papers from Ruby Rock-It. Even though they are designed as a wedding range, it was just too easy to pull out a few pages to use as a baby boy page. I can't believe this is Kyan. I barely even remember him looking so little. 





Also this month, we had the opportunity to work with one of Becky Fleck's new sketches for her Pagemaps website. You can see it here.  Here's what I came up with using My Romance as well.




 Cheers
Alicia
