January Kit Projects for Cest'Magnifique!

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a beautiful and blessed Christmas and Holiday. We are ending the year and starting with the new and I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year for you and your families (human and fur!) Today I want to share my projects for the January Cest'Magnifique Main kit. I also got the flower add-on. You can never have too many flowers!!! 

First is a layout of our youngest ds on his wedding day! I used the gorgeous LemonCraft Forget Me Not papers and embellishments included in the Main kit. I used some flowers from the Main kit and also the add-on kit. The pretty blue ribbon was also in the Main kit. I love the little Bo Bunny Country Garden alpha stickers! I added a little misting to the background and stamped some leaves and that was it!

 For this one I did some fussy cutting on some of the beautiful papers. The floral elements are just stunning on these. This is our dd and granddaughter! Love the sweet pic. There are mostly blues in these papers, but I pulled some of the green and green/blues in this one. I cut the little butterfly from some of the packaging and also drew an extra. I added a few little tiny punched blooms and hand drawn leaves. Also a little faux stitching. I inked the little punched blooms for some dimension and added stickles to the center.

Here are the beautiful blooms included in the Flower add-on kit:

This is another one that I did with a photo from Patrick's wedding day! I pulled from the browns/greys in the collection. I cut the beautiful blue ribbon in half for this and added some liquid pearl. Again just some hand drawn leaves. Some faux stitching and those cute little alpha stickers! All of my projects were created with only the Main kit and flower add-on!

This was done for the sketch for January. This is our precious little Kinsey Grace, she loves her little stuffed giraffe "Topper"! She hugs him and gives him kisses and takes him everywhere with her!! I used the chipboard on this one, painted it white and added liquid pearls! I used a stencil on the background to pull some of the peach color out. Added liquid pearls (again!!!).

Here is the sketch for the month:

I absolutely LOVED creating with this month's kit. The papers are so pretty and the flowers are gorgeous. The kit is so versatile as well! You can check it out here on the Cest'Magnifique blog and store. Please check to see what the DT created with this gorgeous kit!!!

TresorsdeLuxe December Challenge!!!

I didn't really have time to do the December challenge but when I saw the mood board one of the photos reminded me of my childhood. The photo of the carosel reminded me of the magical Season of Christmas when I was a child. Every Christmas for the month of December a Merry-Go-Round set up for all the children. Santa was there, they played Christmas Carols and it was decorated for Christmas. My Daddy took me to ride every year starting in 1958! I went every year until I was probably 6 years old! Didn't think much about it after that. I moved from the area over 30 years ago. I recently found out that the same Merry-Go-Round still operates every year in the same spot!!!! I was so happy to see a piece of my childhood! The picture used in my layout is one of this exact Merry-Go-Round!!!

Here is the December Mood Board:

Here is a link to the December Challenge. And here is my page!

I used lots of goodies from the TresorsdeLuxe store! The White lace and Gold trim, the pretty gem on top and the little white roses too! The paper is some REALLY old K and Company paper from my stash. The snowflakes, title and little bow are Anna Griffin. I added some white ink and some chunky glitter in the corners.

For the carosel top I used Anna Griffin metallic layers paper and embossing folder. I drew a template first and then cut the sections from the alternating colors. I folded them and attached each section from the back and used cardboard for dimension underneath.

Tresors Supplies used:
White Venice Lace w/tear drop edging LA-047
Gold Venice Lace trim LA-144
Gold Venice lace LA-189
Rhinestone and pearl  accent

Cest Magnifique December Kit!

Hi. I was lucky enough to join the Cest Magnifique Design Team and wanted to share my first creations. I received the December Main kit and Flower Add-on. The gorgeous papers are from Riddersholm and the embellies are gorgeous too!

This first page is a cute picture that I took of one of our four-legged kids looking out the window! I thought it looked just like she was watching for Santa!!!! I used a mixture of the gorgeous papers and blooms included in the kit, but I chose to pull the greens for this page.

This is my baby girl "Harley", another one of our four-legged kids! I chose to pull the reds for this page! I used the Prima vine and lace along with the little MME alphas on this one.

This is our precious Granddaughter last year on her very first Christmas and visit with Santa. I wanted a softer look on this page so I chose the lighter paper and embellies! I also used the pretty gold ribbon for a bow.

For this one I focused on the beautiful red blooms in the kit and some of the red berries! I had this awesome pic of the Jolly man himself and used it for this page! The only item on these pages not included in the kits was the glittery leaves. Everything else was included!
