C'est Magnifique


Hi everyone!   Thanks for stopping in today!  :)  I totally slept in this morning.  That was nice.  :)  So this month I am happy to be the guest designer over at C'est Magnifique Kit Club.   They are a kit club that specializes in using harder to find products.  They are based in the US, but they will often use papers that are made by an international company.  This month the kit included a lot of papers from 7 Dots Studio, a line designed by Finnibair.  When Leslie asked me to guest design, she warned me that it may not be my style, because it is very bold and grungy, but I was happy to take it as a challenge and I had a lot of fun playing with the kit.

Here's what the main kit looks like:


The kit is called My Soul's Canvas.  I also used their add on kit:


And then here are the layouts that I made with the kit...

And the close up's:


I really enjoyed playing with those mistable canvas pieces.  


Layout number 2:

Layout number 3:

And then I added an envelope to the back that slightly sticks out on the top, and I added some hidden journaling in it.  


Layout number 4:

I loved the background piece of paper and didn't want to cover it up.  But I like my pages more dimensional.  So I took my craft knife and cut parts and then popped those parts up with Zapdots from Helmar.  Then it gave me more of the 3D look I was wanting and I still was able to see all the beautiful paper.  The picture is one of my favorite photos from my Sister In Law's wedding.  I seriously LOVE this photo!  

And the close up's:


And finally, layout number 5:

This one is very simple.  

And the close up's:



Wow, that was a lot to share.  :)  I really did have a lot of fun with this kit.  I highly recommend you check out C'est Magnifique and their kits.  They are unique, and I love that they use harder to find stuff. Last month they used product from The ScrapCake...and I've heard from many of you that it is hard to find their stuff in the US.  

Thanks so much to Leslie from C'est Magnifique for the opportunity to guest design for her wonderful kit club!  

And thanks to YOU for stopping in today!  Stop by tomorrow to see who else I am guest designing for this month.  :)

Have a fantastic day!
