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!

C'est Magnifique November Sketch Layout

Today is reveal day for the November sketch at C'est Magnifique.  
I created this layout using the beautiful November kit, "Time After Time."

Love this old photo of my mom and her little brother!  I used elements from the main kit along with the embellishment add on, flower add on and mixed media kit, all of which can be found here in the store. I used a mask, modeling paste, inks and a die cut from my stash.

C'est Magnifique 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 chose 5 (or maybe more) layouts to feature on our blog!  
You have the entire month of November to submit your layout.

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

1.  You must be a follower of the blog.  

2.  Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog using the Inlinkz tool.  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.

 Deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, November 30, 2014 (US time).
Have fun with the sketch.  We can't wait to see how you use it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Canvas For Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo October Challenge

I came across a blog  Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo and loved the idea behind their October Challenge, "In My Head."  My mind is cluttered with so many things, much of which I store away and some that are   continually on my mind.  Some thoughts are happy and cheerful, and some are sad and dark.  Made me think of a book, with chapters full of  twists and turns . . . so much like my life right now.  So I decided to create a canvas to some what resemble a book, with lots of pages, some happy and colorful and some sad and dark.




Lots and lots of layering with papers from Marion Smith Designs Motley and Mad Tea Party Collections, and bits and pieces of mixed media.  Here are a few closeups:

An Autumn Inspired Canvas


Hi everyone!  I have a canvas to share with you I created using using some beautiful laces and flowers from the Tresors de Luxe store.

It's chilly outside and the leaves are falling from the trees.  I love this time of the year, especially the colors of the leaves which inspired me when creating my canvas. 

I used two different laces on my layout, both of which I painted with some Twinkling H20 paints.



along with some fabric flowers in dark peach and yellow:
