Hi everyone!  This is a canvas I made as a Guest Designer for C'est Magnifique using their September kit!  This kit includes a variety of papers by Kaisercraft and Scrapberry's.
Included in this month's kit is a stunning piece of lace that I cut apart and added to the cluster of hand-made roses.
To add texture to the background of my canvas, I used a damask stencil and texture medium.

 Hi everyone!  Today I have a layout to share that I made as a Guest Designer for C'est Magnifique using their September kit!  This kit includes a variety of papers by Kaisercraft and Scrapberry's.

I based this layout on the September sketch shown to the left.  The floral wreath shown in the sketch is by Blue Fern Studios and comes in the September kit.

I decorated the chipboard wreath by spraying it with a brown ink that has a green shimmer to it.  Then I inked the edges of the wreath with a darker brown and dry-brushed white paint onto the surface.

The Maya Road bird cages are part of the main kit, and the Petaloo butterflies come in the embellishment add-on.

The white Petaloo flowers are also part of the main kit.  The smaller green flowers were hand-made using Bitty Blossom dies, watercolor paper and ink.
I love the Prima iridescent circles that come in the embellishment add-on.  I tucked them behind the layers of papers beneath my photo.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello again!  Today I have a layout to share that I made as a Guest Designer for C'est Magnifique using their September kit!  This kit includes a variety of papers by Kaisercraft and Scrapberry's.



C'est Magnifique is sponsoring Sketchabilities this month and this is the cute sketch we got to play with.
I really love the Kaisercraft die-cut shapes that coordinate with the papers.  I layered several pieces beneath and around my photo.  The pretty pink flower comes in the flower add-on and the little roses were hand-made from the Kaisercraft papers.

This adorable vellum envelope & tag is by Melissa Frances and comes in this month's embellishment add-on.  I added a little journaling on the tag and tucked it away behind the doily.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi friends!  This is a layout that I made as a Guest Designer for C'est Magnifique using their September kit!  This kit includes a variety of papers by Kaisercraft and Scrapberry's.  This layout focuses on the beautiful papers by Scrapberry's.  I decided to make this layout very muted and concentrate on the soft tones of lavender and mint in the papers.
The larger lavender flowers tucked behind the photo are part of the flower add-on.
The roses were hand-made using Bitty Blossoms dies and were cut from coordinating papers.  I dabbed a touch of lavender ink onto the tops of the flowers.
The Prima canvas alphas were painted white and gently inked with lavender.  I printed out a portion of my title and adhered it to the alphas.

Thank you for visiting me today.  See you again soon!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a layout to share that I made as a Guest Designer for C'est Magnifique using their September kit!  This kit includes a variety of papers by Kaisercraft and Scrapberry's.  I decided to keep this layout simple because the Kaisercraft papers are stunning alone!
I cut apart the pink vine from the flower add-on and added a small floral cluster beside my photo.  The smaller flowers are handmade Bitty Blossoms made from coordinating paper.
I cut apart a doily and stitched the edge to my layout using embroidery floss.
The Kaisercraft die-cuts make perfect embellishments for this layout.  The lovely designs can be easily layered behind your photo to create a beautiful focal point.

Thanks for stopping by!  See you soon!

Hi everyone!  This is just a quick share of a card I had made using Pion Design's Alma's Sewing Room collection.

The larger flower was made using Rose Creations dies by Spellbinders.  You can find my tutorial HERE.  The smaller flowers are made from Bitty Blossoms dies.

The curled measuring tape is actually a border strip that I cut from one of the papers from this collection.  I used a scissor to curl the strip and then adhered it to my card.

Hi friends!  I hope you are all doing well.  :o)
Today I wanted to share a layout I made a while back using the 75 Cents collection by Kaisercraft.  These papers are perfect for getting artsy and grungy!
The photo is of my husband and I a few years back.  It was taken on a very important day for us... the day that it was decided that we could finally be together.  It sounds strange, but unfortunately, that is how the real world works.
I used a few wood elements by Kaisercraft that were sent to me by a friend.  This title piece was inked and lightly embossed for a subtle texture.
There are a lot of layers on this layout that include torn paper, punched paper and corrugated board.

Most of the flowers are handmade using Rose Creations and Bitty Blossoms dies by Spellbinders.
I stitched a few circle and lines to create interest and add texture.  The background paper was further altered with stamps and ink splatters.
Thank you for stoppping by today.  I wish you a fabulous week!
