From my stash: Modeling Paste, stamp and ink.

   Add on kits are available to purchase in the store.  The November Monthly kit will debut at the end of the month.

Someone New Arriving at C'est Magnfique!

It is nearly time to reveal our November papers and add ons, but it is also time to reveal our newest designer who will be starting with the November kit, Tracey Sabella!!

Here is a little about Tracey in her own words:


Hi, My name is Tracey Sabella. I have been married to the man of my dreams, Gary, for 32 years and counting. We live atop a hill surrounded by wildlife and gorgeous forest in northeast Ohio. We are blessed with 4 wonderful children, and with two weddings in recent years our family is growing. Faith and family are the most important things in my life. 

I discovered scrapbooking in 2007 and soon discovered what a wonderful creative outlet it is for me. Along the way I’ve added other forms of paper crafting such as card making and altered projects. I’ve been creating and crafting for as long as I can remember and often employ those skills in my scrapbook layouts and paper projects.

I enjoy mixing things up, but my go to style these days is what I call shabby mixed media. I adore textures and enjoy combining rugged, grungy elements with more delicate items like flowers and flourishes. I am so delighted to design for C’est Magnifique with the fabulous international products that are featured in these kits. I am blessed to design for some amazing companies including Donna Salazar Designs, Leaky Shed Studio, and Helmar. I am a regular contributor to Scrapbooking.com Magazine and am blessed to share my work each month for the Once Upon A..Sketch Challenges.

I enjoy learning new skills and relating what I’ve learned along the way. I would be honored for you to drop by my blog, Garden of Grace.

Vicky's October Projects

The "Sweet Treats" October kit features some gorgeous Maja Designs papers - the Coffee in the Arbour collection. Here is a layout I created using the gorgeous kit sketch. I used items from the main kit and the flower add-on for this layout. I even used a few pieces of Prima packaging from the flowers as layers around my image too!


This is the fantastic sketch for this month. Don't forget to enter your interpretation of this beautiful sketch for a chance to win a fantastic prize!
Next is layout of my dad and the start of his family (now has 2 more siblings) when he immigrated to Canada from Portugal. Everything on this layout is from the main kit and flower add-on except for a few doilies from my stash.  I pulled out some old creative memories tools to create the scallop circle design.

This is a display layout I created. Everything on this layout is from the main kit and flower add-on except for the doily and some seam binding from my stash.  The seam binding was tinted using the ink the kit and I also stamped on the doily with that very pretty pink ink.

A unisex birthday card to add to my stash when an unexpected event occurs. Everything on this card is from the main kit and flower add-on.

A girly gift box (kirigami folding) to add to my stash when an unexpected event occurs. Everything on this card is from the main kit and flower add-on except the seam binding... it was tinted using the pink ink in the kit.

A peek at the main kit this month...

The flower add-on I used...

Sadly this will be my final reveal using C'est Magnifique kits.  Thanks for joining me on the blog today!
