C'est Magnifique February Sketch & Layout


The first of the month is reveal day for the 
February sketch at C'est Magnifique
I created this layout using the February kit, "Bird Song."
  I used elements from the main kit along with the embellishment add on and flower add on kit, all of which can be found here in the store. 
From my stash:  modeling paste, stencil, stamp, ink and wire.

A few closeups:  





Here is the February sketch, designed by me!

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 January 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.

C'est Magnifique's February Kits Layouts

Hi everyone!  Here today to share a couple of layouts I created with C'est Magnifique's February Kits. I used the Main Kit, Flower Add-On and  Embellishment Add-On.

Love this picture of my Grandmother.  Each time I look at it I can't help but wonder what was on her mind.   I used the Botanical Garden paper from Blue Fern Studios new Sanctuary collection along with elements from the Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On.
From my stash:  Stencil, Modeling Paste, Mist, Stamp and Ink.





I found a picture on Pinterest of some vintage spools which went perfectly with the Bountiful paper from the Sanctuary collection  to use on my second layout.  I used elements from the Main Kit, Embellishment Add On and Flower Add on.
From my stash:  Stencil, Modeling Paste, Mist, Ink and Stamp




 I will be back in a couple of days to share a canvas I created using the February kits.  All of the add on kits are available to purchase here in the store.

Comfort & Joy

For those of you that follow my blog you know that my Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer a few years ago. Sadly she passed away on December 4th.  I miss her terribly and know that in time I will heal.  I take comfort in knowing that she is in a better place and at peace.   

 I have a couple of layouts to share that I created using 
C'est Magnifique's December kit, Comfort & Joy.  
I loved working with the vintage Riddersholm papers from their 
"Our Country Christmas" collection.
On my first layout I used elements from the main kit, the flower add on, and the mixed media add on kit.  You can find all of the details on the kits here in the C'est Magnifique store.
From my stash: stencil, stamp and ink.

My next layout was created using the December sketch.
 Love the picture of my Grandad.  He was a Royal Canadian Mountie.
There is still plenty of time to enter our sketch challenge.  


You can find all of the details here.

Happy Holidays!
