September Sketch Challenge

 We would love to see YOU use our sketch as inspiration for a layout. We have very few rules for our Sketch Challenge. As a matter of fact, we have just one rule, we want your layout to resemble the sketch. Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, but we do want to look at your layout and be able to see that you used the sketch. Other than that, you are free to use anything you have in your personal stash, and we welcome all styles of scrapbooking.

We will award two prizes for this sketch challenge. The first prize will be a collection of paper, flowers, chipboard, and embellishments selected by C'est Magnfique's owner Deonna. The winner of the prize package will also be able to shop in the C'est Magnifique Store, and have their purchases sent with the prize package, so that means you won't have to pay for shipping! 
Our second prize, a $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store, will be awarded randomly to one of our participants who obviously uses one of our kits to create their Sketch Challenge layout. 

We will also choose 5 (or maybe more) layouts to feature on our blog!  
You have the entire month of September to submit your layout.

What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1. You must be a follower of our blog. It's easy to become follower - see the left sidebar.

2. Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog using the Inlinkz tool below. Please link to the blog post where you have uploaded your layout (not your general blog address). If you do not have a blog, you may link to an online gallery.

  The deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, September 30, 2015 (US time).
Have fun with the sketch. We can't wait to see how you use it!

Stina's September Kit Projects

Hi everyone!
Time for me, Stina, to show you some of my projects made with the gorgeous September kit!

Personal Supplies: cardstock craft, black ink

My first layout is a really cute one with baby pink, black and kraft colors. I love the color resist die-cuts I've used on this layout. They are so useful. For this project I used products from the Main Kit, the Embellishment Add-on, the Mixed Media Kit, the Card kit and the Flower Add-on.



    Personal Supplies: Chameleon pens

On my second layout I started by coloring the patterned paper and then moved on to embellish it. For this project I used products from the Main Kit, the Embellishment Add-on and the Flower Add-on.





 Personal Supplies: White cardstock

This layout is really girly and cute. I used a lot of die-cuts from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. For this project I used products from the Main Kit, the Embellishment Add-on and the Mixed Media Kit.




     Personal Supplies: chipboards

Finally, I've made 4 simple cards. The base to these cards comes from the Card Kit. For this project I used products from the Main Kit, the Embellishment Add-on, the Mixed Media Kit, the Card kit and the Flower Add-on. Here are some close-ups of the cards.




Thanks for visiting today!
Love, Stina

Elena's August Mixed Media Tutorial

Hello everyone! Today I want to inspire you with my new box , made with the August Main Kit.

First I covered my box with black acrylic paint.

I cuted two pieces of Dovecraft Bohemian paper and a сircle for the box cap.

Then sticked them down.

I cuted a bird from the Dovecraft Bohemian paper, glued it to the black cardstock and cuted it again.

Then I glued my bird to the cup, and added a flower from the August Main Kit.

I glued another bird on the other side.

I fussy cut a lot of butterfly and added them to my box. I also added some Bohemian Sequins. I covered my box with Silks paint to make it shining.

And some close-ups:



Thanks for stopping by today! The August Kit is absolutely wonderful and I had a really fun time creating with this kit! I hope you'll do the same!
