C'est Magnifique Kits First Anniversary Blog Hop
Hi there! Whether you're here following along the Blog Hop or just landed here, you're at a great place - because you're a part of the "C'est Magnifique Kits First Anniversary Blog Hop"! If you arrived here from Scrap FX's blog, you're in the right place.
For those of you who don't know me, my name is Camilla Ekman and I'm a proud member of the C'est Magnifique Design Team! Today I'm here to give you a chance to win some awesome prizes!
First though, I'd like to show you the November Kit "Between Sunrise & Sunset" from C'est Magnifique along with a step-by-step layout I created with the November kit together with the flower add-on kit.
Here is my step-by-step layout:
1. Use the Overused Tablecloth paper as the background. Cut the Spice and Sugar paper to 10,25" x 10,25" and use a border punch. Glue this paper on top of the background.
2. Cut 4x4 cm pieces of the Raspberry Pudding paper. Use black ink on the edges of the small squares. Glue them onto the background.
3. Create a pattern by using a mask and some texture paste. Let it dry.
4. Attach the photo and the chipboard piece underneath it. I have dabbed mine with white gesso.
5. Arrange the flower cluster. Start with the large pink flower. Then cut the red flower vine into three pieces and attach them. Add the three smaller flowers to create a layered cluster.
6. I choose to use the black small letters for my title. Black sets off beautifully to all the pink, red and orange.
7. To finish off my page I add three dots of black, by using three of the black bling swirls from the kit.

Along with the other awesome prizes, here's what I have up for grabs. These flowers, lace and chipboard pieces are all from the October and November kits from C'est Magnifique. Although I have used tons of flowers for my kit layouts I still have these to give away to one of you. To win my prize you need to leave me a comment and also make sure you are a follower on my blog.
