C'est Magnifique JAN Preview

In my last post I shared two layouts as a sneak peek to the C'est Magnifique January kit add-ons. Here is a look at the papers and add-ons. You'll have to wait until December to see the full main kit and project reveal!

First look at January kit projects (C'est Magnifique Kits)

I'm sharing a few of my first projects made with the very pretty January C'est Magnifique kit - featuring gorgeous Fabscraps papers. Warming... I love PINK. I was so thrilled to scrap my daughter with pink, pink, pink. So, I grabbed some toddler pictures of her and off I went (she is now 5 years old) .

In my first layout, I used my favourite papers in this kit and paired them with some doilies from my stash. By the way, there are so many gorgeous flowers in the add-on kit! I also really like the black letters and bling in the main kit - to make things contrast with the light tones of the papers.

For my second layout, I layered some doilies from my stash and added more gorgeous flowers from this kit. Oh my... it is flower heaven... the large white flowers are included in the main kit! I also love how this paper looks aged and stamped on without having to pull out any ink... just a little distressing and voila - instant shabby chic!

Well, that's all the sneaks I have for today, but I have more projects in the works for the big reveal at the end of the month.

"White Christmas" ATC (Dusty Attic)


I just LOVE the "White Christmas" theme at Dusty Attic this month. I've actually had mine done for 6 weeks now and can finally share it. I used some older papers from Meg's Garden and paired them with DA's corrugated cardstock (I white-washed it with DA paint) and lots of gorgeous chipboard. I used a reindeer from the Santa sleigh and reindeer piece (I just cut off the last reindeer), a mini lamp post and some letters from the mini ABC set. I generously covered the reindeer and lamp post with DA's Alabaster white paint then topped them with diamond dust glass and stickles glitter. The word JOY was plain chipboard topped with DA's clear crackle varnish... I really the glossy crackle effect on plain pieces!

Well, that's my last Dusty Attic ATC for 2013!
