Here is a sneak peek at the amazing C'est Magnifique April 2014 kit. Some beautiful kit add-ons were revealed this week! You'll have to wait until March 31st to see the main kit contents, and the design team project reveal, but for now you can drool over these...
I'm here to share with you a special project I made using some gorgeous Something Tattered Stamps and Dusty Attic chipboard - a match made in heaven! I started off by using a script stamp from the French Script "PARIS" stamp set on my white background. After adding a few layers of burlap and papers it was time to embellish. All of these papers were old stuff in my stash and the only one I know for sure is that the beautiful green die cut is from Basic Grey. The picture is of my husband with his mom and step-father (taken the day after my wedding in the Bahamas :)

In the top corner I used some butterfly stamps from the French "MARS" (March) stamp set on white cardstock and fussy cut them out, then mounted with small foam adhesive. The Dusty Attic chipboard around the picture are corners from the "LEAFY" frame set. I splattered them with Dusty Attic "NAVAJO" white and "PESTO" green acrylic paint.
The "HAPPY MEMORIES" chipboard title was painted white gesso and stamped using the brand new "SWIRLS" stamp set.
Here is the Dusty Attic sketch challenge for March, I rotated it as per below.
With 20 years of business marketing experience, paper art is a natural extension of my work world. After having my last child, I decided not to return to a full-time corporate marketing job so that I could concentrate on raising my 3 children for a while. I started designing in 2009 to fill the void of not working in a creative field anymore. I am addicted to this beautiful art form, even now after 2 decades of creating and returning to part-time work.
