Inspiration from Camilla and Valerie

Wow, it's so exciting to see all your smiling faces below in our Bits & Pieces Giveaway!  We have such a great group of blog readers, and we appreciate all of you stopping by to see what we're up to at C'est Magnifique Kits.  If you haven't yet entered our Giveaway, see the post below this (or click on the photo at the top of our left sidebar).

We would like to share with you a few layouts from design team members Camilla and Valerie.  Enjoy!

"Time Flies" by Camilla Ekman

I can't believe how time flies. My children are getting so big. It seems like yesterday they started school, but now they are 12 and 14. Creating this layout I used lots of layers, using punches and dies. 

"Arga ogon" by Camilla Ekman

How can someone so angry look so cute? Yes, this young lady is sitting under a table, angry at her mother. She has her angry eyes on. LOL. The layout is made with the fabulous April kit from C'est Magnifique. I have played with some mists, some masks and some texture paste to create more patterns to the background.

"Easter" by Valerie Serfozo

 I just had hundreds of old photos and slides scanned and I'm so happy to have some digital photos of my family when I was younger. I have fond memories of Easter when my mother would dress all 4 of us in new dresses, shoes, socks, gloves, and hats. It was quite a special day. My mother always wore a corsage on Easter (you can just faintly see it on her left shoulder), so I tried to make my flower cluster look somewhat like a corsage. I didn't want the title to stand out too much, so I chose to leave the canvas alphabet its natural color.

"Love" by Valerie Serfozo

 I have always had a fondness for ledger paper, and was so glad this month's kit included a sheet of it. I chose to use a lot of the Prima chipboard pieces on this layout of my nephew, Keegan. I like the contrast between his sweet skin and the black in both the ledger paper and the chipboard.


  1. Wonderful layouts! They are all so detailed but still clean! Love them :)

  2. Oh wow ladies! these are both absolutely beautiful! clean and crisp with elegance! xox
