Our August Sketch Challenge

Happy August everyone, hope you are enjoying an amazing summer!  We are back this month with a brand new Sketch Challenge for you.  Our new sketch has been created for C'est Magnifique Kits by Sarah Routledge, who we will be introducing you to later this month!!


How about some inspiration from our Design Team?  Take a look at how they have used this sketch, along with our August Kit, "Beautiful Stories".

Karita Vainio


Camilla Ekman


Ulrika Blomfelt


Vicky Alberto


Debbie Burns


Pam Bray


Tammy Broadaway



Cathi O'Neill


We would love to see YOU use our sketch as inspiration for a layout.  We have very few rules for our Sketch Challenge........as a matter of fact, we have just one rule.......we want your layout to resemble the sketch.  Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, but we do want to look at your layout and be able to see that you used the sketch.  Other than that, you are free to use anything you have in your personal stash, and we welcome all styles of scrapbooking.

We will award two prizes for this sketch challenge.  The first prize will be a collection of paper, flowers, chipboard, and embellishments selected by C'est Magnfique's owner Deonna.  The winner of the prize package will also be able to shop in the C'est Magnifique Store, and have their purchases sent with the prize package, so that means you won't have to pay for shipping.  

Our second prize, a $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store,  will be awarded randomly to one of our participants who obviously uses one of our kits to create their Sketch Challenge layout. 

We will also chose 5 (or maybe more) layouts to feature on our blog!  
You have the entire month of August to submit your layout.

What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1.  You must be a follower of our blog.  It's easy to become follower -see the left sidebar.

2.  Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog using the Inlinkz tool below.  Please link to the blog post where you have uploaded your layout  (not your general blog address). If you do not have a blog, you may link to an online gallery.

 Deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, August 31, 2014 (US time).
Have fun with the sketch.  We can't wait to see how you use it!

August Kit with Pam Bray

Today is my first post for C'est Magnifique using the August Kit. This kit is so romantic as you will see with my projects.  


For my first project I used a wedding photo of my gorgeous daughter in law, like I said the paper is just so romantic and worked perfect for this wedding layout. I used mist on the paper, filigree, letters, tag and resin,
 For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on kit, the embellishment add-on kit.



I love this layout of my sweet grand-daughter. I created my background using green paint, gesso and a honeycomb mask from my stash, prior to layering three of the same photo to create a great look. I made a few flags from the paper and from the sticker sheet. I then added clusters of flowers, wood letters and stickers from the kit . 
For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on kit, the embellishment add-on kit.


I love to make cards so I created a couple from the kit.  I used a doily die I had from stash along with a piece  paper from the kit. I cut the doily in half so I could use it on both cards. The journal cards from the kit was sprayed with the mist from the kit....aren't they pretty. I love to fussy cut...so on each card there is a handmade embellishment...one of the dove, the other of the roses. 
For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on kit, the embellishment add-on kit.


This has to be my favorite piece I created with the kit...an altered tray. I painted the tray and filigree from the kit with green paint from my stash. Add some of the beautiful paper and sticker border to each piece along with the beautiful flowers and resins.
 For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on kit, the embellishment add-on kit.

I hope you enjoyed my projects using the August Kit and loved that you stopped by, see you next time!!!! Pam

August Kit Project With Debbie

Hi everyone, Debbie here with you today to share a canvas I created using the August kit which will make its debut in a few days along with the August Flower Add On, Embellishment Add On 
and Mixed Media kits.

To create the pink background on my canvas I mixed some white acrylic paint from my stash with the Heidi Swapp Color Shine Pink from the Mixed Media kit.  I lightly dabbed a butterfly stamp with some of the Dina Wakely Sky Acrylic paint from the Mixed Media kit and randomly stamped butterflies on the background.  I also lightly dabbed some of the paint around the edges of my canvas and randomly here and there.   

I used the Studio Calico Bubbles mask on the background and added some stamping with a script stamp.

I used some of the Prima Caliope Chipboard Alphas from the August Embellishment Add On Kit on the background of my canvas.


I love the decorative packing that came in the kit.  Above you can see where I cut out a butterfly from a Manor House packaging and the lovely clock from the Blue Fern Studios packaging.  The butterfly is surrounded by all of the lovely flowers in the August Flower Add On Kit.

I hope I have inspired you to create!  There are August Add On Kits available to purchase in the store, and you can find them here.

Supplies used from my stash:  Gesso, Modeling Paste,  Mask, Stamp, Ink.
