My Little Princess

Here is my first sneak peek of the upcoming May kit from C'est Magnifique. As you can see I have gathered some of the flowers in the main kit and the add-on. The title is one of the chipboards in the embellie add-on. So simple, yet so beautiful.

For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on and the embellie add-on.

Memories Captured

A new project for Maja Design. I have used the Vintage Summer Basics collection.
I have also incorporated Blue Fern Studios chipboards.

måndagen den 7:e april 2014


I have some new Blue Fern Studios projects to share - a layout and a card.

The papers are of course from the Blue Fern Garden collection. I have used some tearing both up and down. And then I have used some misting and some masking. The chipboards - The Lattice Fence and the Village Sign Post - are just dabbed with some gesso and some Inka Gold.

And then...the card. The base is made with Blue Fern Garden papers and then I added just a few embellies. The Grande Cage is covered in blue embossing powder.

Life is a gift

The April kit from C'est Magnifique is revealed and here is another layout from me using the kit.

Here I have used the Inka Gold almost as ink on the edges using my finger. Then I added some stamping in black. The mist from the MMM kit is used with a mask and I also used some texture paste creating the swirls (a mask from an older MMM kit). The resin butterflies have some Inka Gold on them as well.

For my layout I have used the main kit, the MMM kit, the flower add-on and the embellie add-on.
From my own stash: leaves, string, masks, stamp, old book paper, texture paste

Yet another layout with the April kit from C'est Magnifique.

I created the background by tearing papers, then some masking and using the embossing powder in the MMM kit and then some stamping on top. The BFS chipboard is rubbed in the Inka Gold.

For my layout I have used the main kit, the MMM kit, the flower add-on and the embellie add-on.
