Evelyn's May Kit Projects

Hello all! Evelyn here today and I want to show you what I made with the beautiful flowery May Kit.

My first layout is about my sister and her very pretty big dog. He is a little bit crazy, but friendly, and of course the very best friend of my sister.
from my stash: cardstock, Gesso, stencil and modeling paste, 13@rts gold glitter strips, glass pearls
For this layout I used the Main May Kit, the Flower Add-On and the Mixed Media Kit. I absolutely fell in love with the Mica Powder, It adds such a wonderful golden shimmer!



My next layout shows my daughter. She likes to take selfies and I am allowed to use them for my layouts - lucky me! :)

from my stash: cardstock, Gesso, punches, crackle accents, stamps and inks and mists, doily
I used the Main May Kit, the Flower Add-On, the Embellishment Add-On and the Mixed Media Kit for this layout. I made a video for you and I hope you enjoy it! 




My video tutorial for you:


My third layout is a clean and calm one, a bit meditative. I used a picture out of a pad called "Cheerfulness." I worked after the May Sketch from our Challenge.  I used the Main May Kit and the Flower Add-On.

from my stash: cardstock, Gesso, modeling paste, stamps, mist
For my last project I altered the Gatefold Journal from the Mixed Media Kit.


From my stash I used a stamped image (LaBlanche) on the front and the back. I covered the journal with crackle paste for interesting texture (I love cracks), and once dry colored it with Deco Art  Raw Umber Antiquing Cream and a Ranger Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber in Juniper. For the edges, some Distress inks in Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo.

Then, I added some of the beautiful flowers from the kits and the wooden leaves from the Main May Kit. The leaves were painted with Gesso and stamped. Last, but not least, I added a little clasp from Prima. At the spine I glued a little metal heart, also from my stash.


 
 


Thanks for stopping by today!

May Sketch Challenge

We have a new Sketch Challenge for you!
The May sketch was created by C'est Magnifique Designer Djamila Khiter.



How about some inspiration from our Design Team?
Take a look at how they have used this sketch, along with our May Kit, "Botanical Garden."







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.

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, May 31, 2015 (US time).
Have fun with the sketch. We can't wait to see how you use it!
