Manor House Creations was born in June 2011. The owners, seeing a need for a greater choice of flowers on the scrapbooking market, and having a desire to promote excellent product and efficient service, formed a new company. The focus at Manor House Creations is on providing quality, highly sort after products.

Manor House Creations blooms are diverse in size and design, and available in a multitude of colours. We spend considerable time with the factory managers, carefully choosing colours and adding our own personal touch to each flower design. Prints are selected exclusively for Manor House Flowers. With such a versatile range, we cater to both the avid scrapbooker and off-the-page crafter alike.

Winner will receive 4 flower packs!
