Teresa's share with the new March kit

Hi everyone it's Teresa here today on this beautiful Tuesday and i have lots to share with you that i made with the new C'est Magnifique March kit for this month.  It was jam packed with lots of amazing papers, embellishments and flowers so i really had fun and made lots of projects to catch up for pages and gifts to give.

My first share is a page i did of a family friend at her wedding shower.  It was such a wonderful day for her and it really showed in this picture.  The papers went great with the sepia colors and the flowers really made it all come together.  It was great too that the papers have so much printed on them so all i did was layer a few papers behind the photo to make it pop more and then added the little sentiments that came with the set.  The cute doilies from Prima are also in the set and it was a pretty addition to put in the cluster of flowers.  

And this page was really fun to make.  I was on the Spellbinders Design Team for 4 years and had lots of photos to do of us so all the neat sentiments started this one off.  Then i layered the papers under it to make the photo stand out and added some of the flowers, the chipboard butterflies and the pretty clock with the flowers.  You also get lots of chipboard sentiments in this kit so i used one of the Friendship words and inked it up a little for my title.  And of course i had to put a die on the backround just for memories. Oh and a few pearls too.  Ya gotta have a bit of bling right?  

For this page i wanted to use the printed words in pink and newsprint that came in the kit so i matted the picture first and then tore the prints to go underneath it.  Then a tucked in a few tags that came with the set and layered that over a couple pieces of the printed paper that i cut in rectangles.  All the gorgeous colors in the papers really made the picture stand out.  And to have a bit of fun i inked up one of the stamps that came in the set with pink ink and stamped a bit on the sides. This sometimes can add that extra color in your photo that you want to pop.  And to finish it i added lots of flowers and some greenery that i die cut and punched out of the green papers that came in the kit.

Here is a page that i did really outside the box with the papers.  Instead of staying with the theme of them i used really simple printed papers and layered them for the backround and then cut a Mickey head with the black to put my photos on.  The black, white and gold tags really went great with this to tuck in by the photos.  And then i added a few strips of colored paper to tie it all in with the flowers.  And if you have time you can add little details like the dots around the outside of the shape or maybe some stenciling.  But have fun, try new things and enjoy what you do.  That is half the fun :)

I think when i taught my classes my students favorite times was when they were doing messy inky things so ink things up and add glitter and paint and have fun in whatever you do... you never know what magic you might create with your projects... 

In this kit you also get 2 pieces of 6x6 chipboard so when i saw this tag on one of the papers i new i needed to make a cute little book for an upcoming adventure.  I cut lots of the papers into 6x6 pieces for the insides and then decorated them with the tags and other goodies in the kit.  It was really fun!!  

On the front i used the ivory printed patterned paper and then cut the tag to fit across.  It had the beautiful roses on it but i also added the black, red and ivory ones to go with the doily that came in the set.  And i got a pretty piece of chain so i strung that in the flowers to hang to do something different with it.  You get 2 sets of pearls in the set too so i added a few red ones on the side to match.

Here is a quick photo of the inside.  There is so much in this set you are really going to have fun!

And== i even had lots left for tags after all the other things i made.  I did this one with the heart tag and added the roses over it and the sentiment.  Just a quick little one to add to a gift bag is always nice.

And this one is a wooden tag that you get in the set.  I used the Prima ink they had with a new texture stamp and went all over the base of the tag first.  That was fun.  Then i inked up around the edges and made those little stitching dots.  Then-- i inked around the chipboard sentiment and glued that on with that pretty white pearl and added some flowers that i got in the kit.  And just finished it with a pretty ribbon that i had in my stash....  So easy but really fun to make!

And my last tag for today i stamped the texture stamp on the backround with ink and then i used some of the purple embossing powder over it.  I gave it a nice mottled backround to add lots of goodies over.  Then i took the chipboard sentiment and pained it with pink paint and let that dry.  It needed a little bit of shadow so i used some purple ink around all the edges.  The flower comes in the set and i cut a green pieces of foliage from a die that i had and arranged it all out on the tag and glued it down.  Then i just finished it with a matching ribbon.  It was a fun experiment and i love how it came out.  

And that is my share for today with the new March Kit.  You are really going to love all the fun pieces in this and i hope that i inspired you to make lots of fun things of your own with it.  Enjoy!!
