We are back today with more layouts from both the C'est Magnifique Design Team, as well as some of the Design Team from The Scrap Cake.  Since we're using their paper this month,  they are using our kit!


Let's begin by taking a look at some of the layouts created by 
the amazing designers from The Scrap Cake, beginning with Larissa Albernaz:

"Lady" by Camilla Ekman

 The picture is of my youngest niece - such a little lady. I have used the main kit together with the flower add-on. Since there are so many colours in both papers and flowers I have used a b/w photo.

Border punch
Flourish stamps on transparency paper

"Grin" by Erin Blegen

 The adorable baby girl in this photo is my daughter Aspen. Her smile is just BEYOND cute!! I wanted to create a really sweet and playful girly layout. I love this pretty heart-patterned paper, but is is a little busy. So I decided to tear out the center and place one of the 6x12 sheets behind it to create a base for my photos. The banner has a few layers to it, which I love the look of. I simply took some scraps and created two paper layers, topped with some remnants from the beautiful white lace included in the main kit. Finally, I hole punched the tops and threaded through the white & yellow twine, followed by a variety of little flowers, some tinted with pink ink. Behind my photos I stuck in strips of various papers, some decorated with punches, some distressed, all of them inked. And for the final touches, I threw around a mixture of white and pink paint before adding a handful of mini hearts punched from more scraps and popped-up with mini foam adhesive.
