Traveling C'est Magnifique

Good morning everyone!

I will be adding the new Maja papers to the store this weekend.  Keep your eyes out for that.


I had such a good time last week with a great group of ladies at the 2014 Teal Crop for Ovarian Cancer awareness.  We had a page contest, sketch challenge and prizes.




I packed up some of the store and headed to the crop to have some fun!  I added a few pictures of the silliness.

Have fun creating!

September Kit With Debbie

Hi everyone, Debbie here with you today to share a few layouts I created using 
the September kit and add ons.
For this layout I used the main kit, the flower add-on, the embellishment add-on and the Mixed Media kit.   I mixed some of the Dylusions Ground Coffee ink spray  with some modeling paste when using the Prima Stone Wall Stencil.
From my stash: modeling paste and paint.  

For my second layout I used the main kit, embellishment add on kit and Mixed Media Kit.  I used a stencil and modeling paste from my stash on the background and colored it with the Dylusions Ground Coffee Ink Spray.  I then used the Prima Stone Wall stencil from the mixed media kit on top of it and was quite surprised when I applied the white modeling paste and how in interacted with the Ground Coffee ink spray and turned green.    I covered the Ginger's Poppies from the Embellishment Add On Kit with the Magenta Pan Pastel  from the Mixed Media kit.   I also randomly applied some of the pan pastel to  my background.
From my stash: modeling paste, paint, stamp, ink and stencil.

For my third layout I used the main kit, embellishment Add On, Flower Add on and Mixed Media Kit.  I took a picture I had taken a few years back from my garden of a lovely butterfly and changed the picture to sepia.  I randomly stamped the background paper, did some embossing and shaded in with some of the magenta pan pastel.  I also used the magenta pan pastel to color the beautiful Prima lace in the embellishment add on kit.
From my stash: Stencil and gold emblossing powder.

Add on kits are still available to purchase in the store.  You can find them here.

I hope I have inspired you to create!  I will be back next week to share more of my projects.

Our Newest Addition to our Design Team...

We would like to welcome Sarah Routledge as our newest member of the design team! She will be starting with the September kit and will also be helping with our social media communications and doing sketches for our challenges. Here is a little about Sarah in her own words:


My name is Sarah Routledge and I am thrilled to be joining the C'est Magnifique Kits Design Team!

I live in Ontario, Canada and am a married, working mom to one beautiful little boy, who often (i.e. almost always) is the subject of my layouts! I started scrapbooking several years ago, and was immediately addicted. I absolutely love the creative process of putting together a scrapbook page, tag, or off-the-page project. I love trying different (non-traditional) materials and new techniques - especially mixed media. Although most of my work is layouts or altered items, I love using my scrapbooking supplies for other crafty projects, including canvases, tags, ATCs, home/seasonal decor, etc. If you'd like to see my designs, please stop by my blog: Scattered Pictures and Memories.


Here is one of Sarah's layouts made with the gorgeous September kit!!


We hope you help us welcome Sarah to the design team!!

New Items

Dear Scrappy friends,

The last 2 months have flown by.  Being crazy busy will do that I guess.  I hope all of you have had a wonderful summer with lots of great family time.  I should be adding lots of new items to the store after the last CHA.  Just to name a few Tim Holtz Layered Stencils, Webster's Pages, Farmer's Market, Teresa Collins Life Emporium, Epiphany, Forever Green, Coffee Break, Cigar Box Secrets, Paper Lonsdale, Kaisercraft, Rustic Harmony, Graphic 45, Burlap & Bouquets, Industrial Chic, Papermania Eau De Nil Moments & Memories, Carta Bella, Bo Bunny Madeleine, Bella Blvd, Authentique, Grateful, Shimelle, and Die-Namics Accent It Dies.  I have included a few sneak peaks of some of the new store items.


If you would like to see anything special in the store just email me and I will try to have it available for you. We are also starting “special orders” so it you want something big like a Cricut, Cut n Boss, Cameo or a silhouette just to name a few just let me know.

Don’t forget we are posting lots of special things on our Facebook page so go check us out and LIKE us, as there are prizes up for grabs.

There has been some email confusion the last 6 weeks due to Host Gator and Gmail so because of that and needed information from Stamps.com I will be sending out a survey to everyone on our email list.  I hope you will all reply by forwarding the survey back to me.  I have had several occasions where USPS/ Stamps.com have asked for correct phone numbers (especially international). For this added trouble I will add a free gift to your next order after the survey is sent back to me!

Thanks so much for continued support!
Deonna
