Our New Designer and a Peek at our December Kit!

We are happy to announce that we have added a new designer to our team at C'est Magnifique.  Please join us in welcoming Vicky Alberto, who is already busy behind the scenes creating with our December kit.  You are going to love her style!  We will let Vicky tell you a little about herself below.

Hi, my name is Vicky Alberto (aka Simply Paper on some gallery sites) and I live in Alberta, Canada with my husband and three children. After having my last child, I decided not to return to a corporate marketing job so I could raise my three young children for a while. With ten years of experience in the marketing industry, scrapbooking was a natural extension of my work world and fills a creative void. I am now addicted to this fantastic art form that I will embrace for the rest of my life.

My blog address is where I chat about my work, the fantastic companies I am honoured to design for, and share my tutorials. I have been blogging for three years and am overwhelmed that I already have so many wonderful followers. This industry has such a deeply supportive and kind online network of ladies. I have “met” the most amazing people from all over the world through various online communities and have had the opportunity to "work" with some of the most talented ladies in the industry.

I describe my style as “a little shabby and a lot of chic”. For layout projects, I like each layout to look like a piece of art so I keep my titles short and journal on the back (sometimes) - to keep a clean look to my pages. I enjoy working with vintage/romantic style papers and adore adding distressed layers, doilies, chipboard and lots of flowers to my projects. Some of my projects even feature handmade flowers and my tutorials are all listed on my blog (quick links in the right sidebar).

I am thrilled to design for C'est Magnifique kits and that I get to "play" with so many fantastic international products!
