CSI 139 - Manor House Creations

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing this week's case file #139 for Color Stories Inspiration using gorgeous flowers from Manor House Creations.

This week's case file is teamed with a fabulous sketch by Emma Stafrace.

Evidence:
flowers - Manor House Creations
butterfly
string
mini brads
two of something - butterflies
cat accent

Testimony: Document something special about pets or animals.
Journaling on back - My little shadow Millie.  She loves to snuggle and this is her favourite spot - the blankie on our sofa.  When I am sitting on the sofa, she comes up to me and just waits until I fluff up the throw and say "Come on, up you come, here's your blankie."  Millie of course jumps up and immediately snuggles into her blankie, purring loudly and in total bliss.  She likes it even more if I have the blankie right up close to me.  I love hearing her purr and feeling the vibrations against my body.  It's very soothing and comforting.  Love my little fur-baby.

Love the denim rosettes.  They come in light, dark and floral as well as mixed packs.  Here I altered the light denim rosette by lightly swiping with gesso and adding a brad to the centre.

The lemon country roses team beautifully with the sweet floral patterned flower from the Oh So Pretty- blue mix flower pack.

Manor House Creations product:  Country Roses - lemon, Oh So Pretty - blue mix, Denim Rosettes - light, Mayglo - green

 For this LO I was inspired to cut the background houndstooth paper in an artisan shape to match the border cutout from the paper pad and followed it through to the little side cluster.  The colour tones in this range go beautifully with the wooden flourishes in their natural state, so I have accented my page with the small leaves, fancy corners and a flourish heart which I backed in pp.

How gorgeous is Kaisercraft's new "Basecoat Christmas" Collection!!  Absolutely loved working with this beautiful rustic Christmas range. I created 4 Christmas projects with this collection, but check out the blog link HERE to look at Michelle Grant's stunning "Special Moments" Layout and see how she was inspired to use this Christmas range in a non-Christmas layout.

"Ho Ho Ho" Layout
Kaisercraft has some new washi tapes available from this month.  I have used the cute red polka dot washi tape on this layout to create a border. To tie in with the shiny bauble accents in the "Bells" pp I altered the wooden reindeer with red and gold glitter glass and inked his antlers in gold.
