C'est Magnifique Kits: September Kit with Pam

 Hi everyone!!! It is Pam and I am so excited to share with you projects I created with the C'est Magnifique September Kit. It is an amazing kit that is filled with fabulous papers and embellishments.


 My "You and Me" Layout I created using the main kit, the flower add-add on and the embellishment kit. I also used mist, stencil ad modeling paste from my own stash.


 For my next layout I called "Together Forever" I used the main kit and embellishment kit.
I also used modeling paste, a stencil I die cut out, mist and paint


I made my "My Friend" and "You're in My Thoughts" Card using using the main kit, flower add on and flower add on kits. I also used die cuts, ribbon and stamps sentiments from my stash.


Lastly, I want to share with you what I did with the packaging from the flower add on kit. I made a Tag Book using the main kit, embellishment kit and flower add on kit. So remember to think about what you can do with what your are about to throw away.

Add on kits are still available to purchase in the store.  You can find them HERE.
I hope I have inspired you to create and will see you next time. Pam

THE SEPTEMBER KIT WITH TAMMY

WOW! Summer is about over, school has started, and the September kit is here. This kit has some interesting and fun products to work with!

This first layout, "Aim...Shoot" , is my grandson in Trap Shooting competition. I found this kit really helpful with masculine layouts.


I used items from the Main Kit, Flower Add On, Embellishment Add On, and Mixed Media Kits. I also used cheesecloth and stapler from my stash. I fussy cut the feathers and moths from a piece of the paper in the kit.

This next layout is my two grandsons. "You and Me"


I used items from the Main Kit, Flower Add On, Embellishment Add On, and Mixed Media Add On Kits. I love the way the color of the flowers pop on the neutral color papers. This paper would be great for a baby boy layout.


With my third layout, "ROCK",  I went a little grunge. This is a Christian Rock Band that I did some publicity pictures for years ago. High School Classmates of my daughter.


I used items from the Main Kit, Flower Add On, Embellishment Add On,and Mixed Media Add On Kits. I also used a punch, molding paste and a stencil  from my stash.

You've seen the Add On Kits. The Main Kit Reveal will be coming at the end of August!!

Traveling C'est Magnifique

Good morning everyone!

I will be adding the new Maja papers to the store this weekend.  Keep your eyes out for that.


I had such a good time last week with a great group of ladies at the 2014 Teal Crop for Ovarian Cancer awareness.  We had a page contest, sketch challenge and prizes.




I packed up some of the store and headed to the crop to have some fun!  I added a few pictures of the silliness.

Have fun creating!

September Kit With Debbie

Hi everyone, Debbie here with you today to share a few layouts I created using 
the September kit and add ons.
For this layout I used the main kit, the flower add-on, the embellishment add-on and the Mixed Media kit.   I mixed some of the Dylusions Ground Coffee ink spray  with some modeling paste when using the Prima Stone Wall Stencil.
From my stash: modeling paste and paint.  

For my second layout I used the main kit, embellishment add on kit and Mixed Media Kit.  I used a stencil and modeling paste from my stash on the background and colored it with the Dylusions Ground Coffee Ink Spray.  I then used the Prima Stone Wall stencil from the mixed media kit on top of it and was quite surprised when I applied the white modeling paste and how in interacted with the Ground Coffee ink spray and turned green.    I covered the Ginger's Poppies from the Embellishment Add On Kit with the Magenta Pan Pastel  from the Mixed Media kit.   I also randomly applied some of the pan pastel to  my background.
From my stash: modeling paste, paint, stamp, ink and stencil.

For my third layout I used the main kit, embellishment Add On, Flower Add on and Mixed Media Kit.  I took a picture I had taken a few years back from my garden of a lovely butterfly and changed the picture to sepia.  I randomly stamped the background paper, did some embossing and shaded in with some of the magenta pan pastel.  I also used the magenta pan pastel to color the beautiful Prima lace in the embellishment add on kit.
From my stash: Stencil and gold emblossing powder.

Add on kits are still available to purchase in the store.  You can find them here.

I hope I have inspired you to create!  I will be back next week to share more of my projects.

Our Newest Addition to our Design Team...

We would like to welcome Sarah Routledge as our newest member of the design team! She will be starting with the September kit and will also be helping with our social media communications and doing sketches for our challenges. Here is a little about Sarah in her own words:


My name is Sarah Routledge and I am thrilled to be joining the C'est Magnifique Kits Design Team!

I live in Ontario, Canada and am a married, working mom to one beautiful little boy, who often (i.e. almost always) is the subject of my layouts! I started scrapbooking several years ago, and was immediately addicted. I absolutely love the creative process of putting together a scrapbook page, tag, or off-the-page project. I love trying different (non-traditional) materials and new techniques - especially mixed media. Although most of my work is layouts or altered items, I love using my scrapbooking supplies for other crafty projects, including canvases, tags, ATCs, home/seasonal decor, etc. If you'd like to see my designs, please stop by my blog: Scattered Pictures and Memories.


Here is one of Sarah's layouts made with the gorgeous September kit!!


We hope you help us welcome Sarah to the design team!!
