Dana's April Kit Projects

Hi! Dana here today sharing my April Kit creations. This kit is absolutely beautiful and I had a lot of fun cutting and layering patterned papers and die-cuts on my projects this month. The vibrant pink and teal floral accents help to brighten up my pages. The stunning floral prints in this kit have me thinking Spring! I used the April Main Kit, Flower Add-On, Embellishment Add-On and Magnifique Mixed Media Kit for each of the layouts I am sharing today. My Sister-in-Law provided me with these gorgeous photos of my niece, who will be thrilled to get some happy scrappy mail!

I cut away portions of the FabScraps Fleur patterned paper and backed it with fresh polka dot Lemoncraft Tea Roses patterned paper to create a more colorful background for this layout.

I added color to the page with fussy cuts and flowers. The green leaves are leftovers I had from the March Flower Add-On.

I created the title for this page with a die-cut sentiment and Typewriter Key Stickers from the Mixed Media Kit.

I absolutely love this photo of my niece! I think all scrappers can relate to this situation! Posing for pictures certainly has a short time frame, especially if there are wardrobe changes involved.

I used the pink crown from the Main Kit as a stencil to add some texture to the background of this page. I added some subtle color along the woodgrain by using the Ranger Juniper Paint Dabber from the Mixed Media Kit.

The chalkboard tags from the Mixed Media Kit work great with a white gel pen.

I played up the floral theme for this layout. The pretty prints on my niece's outfit were just perfect for this patterned paper!

I used the stencil and paint from the Mixed Media Kit to trace and color the butterflies onto the background of this page. I embossed the wooden bow with the C'est Magnifique Mystic Pink Embossing Powder included in the Mixed Media Kit. The mix of pink and black embossing powders yields a fantastic textured finish.

I built this title spot with pieces of chipboard, die-cuts, flowers and pins. I cut the chipboard from the Mixed Media Kit in half and used the "Sweet" portion here. I colored the chipboard word with the C'est Magnifique Starry Night Glaze from the Mixed Media Kit.

I'm quite happy with how this altered piece turned out. I used items from the Mixed Media Kit, Flower Add-On and Embellishment Add-On for this altered hanger.

I hope I have inspired you today! I have one more layout to share for the April Sketch Challenge on the first of the month.  I have really enjoyed playing with this kit! If you are interested in the April  Kit or Add-Ons a limited amount of kits are available for purchase from the C'est Magnifique Store while supplies last!
