C'est Magnifique February Design Team Projects

Hello, everyone! Today I have some layouts to share that I created using the C'est Magnifique February Kits.

My first layout "sweet" I used a cute photo of my daughter smelling a flower. The photo just seemed to go perfectly with the flower papers from the Kaisercraft Treasured Moment collection.


Here is a process video on this layout:






My next layout I had fun using some foil and a piece of a Hershey's Kiss packaging that I have been saving for awhile. The photo is of my daughter eating chocolate puppy that she got for Valentine's Day.





Next is a layout of my daughter and her cousins hanging out with a statue of a little girl reading a book. 





Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!

Pretty Much Perfect Layout

Back in October, Birds of A Feather sponsored us at Scrap n' Art magazine, and I was one of the lucky ones who got to work with their kits. The kit I was given to work with was their February 2015 kit, and this is the layout I created using a photo of my daughter from a cruise we went on. I love the background in the photo and because it was busy, I wanted to keep the background paper more simple keeping the focus on the picture of my daughter. This kit worked perfectly!

Let's Go Ride A Bike Layout

Happy Friday Everyone! Today I am sharing a page that is different than my typical style, but I still had fun creating it. I did this page for Scrap n' Art magazine using products from AdornIt.
I love the colors in the paper, and they went perfectly with the picture of my daughter riding her bike without the training wheels for the 1st time.



I did lots of doodling! Not sure about the doodling yet but it's growing on me more.



Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting! :)

Getting Organized With Deflecto Storage Solutions!

Hello, today I am sharing with you some Deflecto storage products that I love. With the new year, I have set a goal to get organized, and no other room in my house needs organization as much as my craft room does. Luckily, Deflecto Crafts has the best solutions for all of my craft storage needs!!

I made this short video showing just how easy the Interlocking Stackable Cube Organizers are to use. You can connect as many as you like together using either the Stackable Cube Organizer"X" DividerStackable Cube Organizer OpenStackable Cube Organizer2 Drawer or the Stackable Cube Organizer4 Drawer. Mix and match them any way that you like!

When crafting I seem to always need something to write on, and my Post-It notes are always lost somewhere so I used a VersaGrip™ Double-Clip Sign Holder to attach my Post-Its to the side of one of the cubes so now I can find it and pull a sheet off whenever I need it.

Here is my video:





Products used can be purchased at Amazon.com, or you can click HERE and enter your zip code to see where you can purchase Deflecto Craft products near you.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope I inspired you to check out Deflecto Crafts for all your craft organization needs.

That's My Boy Layout

Hello, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Today I am sharing a cute layout I made using Cocoa Vanilla Studio Flying High Collection. Cocoa Vanilla sponsored us at Scrap n' Art magazine, and I just loved getting to work with their papers.


I love the flair buttons and wood veneer shapes that go with this collection. So cute!!


I mixed some gesso with water in a spray bottle and using the negative space from the cloud sticker as a stencil worked perfectly to make clouds on the backgrounds.



I traced around some of the stars that I created with a stencil and some modeling paste with Imagine Crafts Amplify in white. Then heated it with my heat gun to make them puff up to give more character and dimension to the background.

My C'est Magnifique January Kit Reveal Projects

Today I am sharing with you my projects using the January 2016 C'est Magnifique Kits, New Beginnings. I love the pastel colors on the Blue Fern Studios Autumn Anthology papers and all the coordinating embellishments to go with them.

For my first layout, I used a picture of me as a little girl. 


Using the flowers from the January 2016 Flower Add-On kit I was able to create a lovely flower cluster to go perfectly with the papers.


Tearing out a piece of the background paper and then adhering another piece of paper behind it creates a fun look with some added dimension to your page.


My next layout I wanted to show how the January 2016 New Beginnings kit can be used not only just for girly pages but for boy pages as well, so I used some pictures of my dad when he was little.


The little Mechanicals Vintage Trinkets by Prima Finnabair that are in the January 2016 Embellishment Add-On Kit add a great touch to any page or card.


I also really liked the canvas banner by Prima that comes in the January 2016 Embellishment Add-On Kit.


My last layout is another picture of me when I was little on my first bicycle. 


On this flower cluster, I used one of the cute stickers from the alpha sheet that came in the January 2016 main kit


I love chipboard, so I was really excited to see these gorgeous Ginger Poppies in the January 2016 Embellishment Add-On Kit. I painted it with the CM Blue Bubble Paint from the January 2016 Mixed Media kit.
