Hello C'est Magnifique Friends. Kathy Bradley here with you today and I am sharing my layouts and projects created using the most gorgeous C'est Magnifique January 2016 New Beginnings kits and add-ons. Be sure to go back and check out the posts from the other amazingly talented ladies on the team - so much inspiration!
My first layout features the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios Autumn Anthology paper which comes in the Main Kit - the papers are beautiful! I used elements from the Main Kit, Embellishment Add-On, Flower Add-On and Mixed Media Kit.
Personal Items from my stash were hot glue gun and Fabri Tac Adhesive.
Deonna (the owner of the C'est Magnifique Kits on-line shop) coordinates the Main Kit, as well as all the add-ons and the Mixed Media Kit beautifully with the paper and flowers!
On my second layout, once again, I used elements from the Main Kit, Mixed Media, Kit, Embellishment Add-On and Flower Add-on. It was so much fun to work with all the beautiful products in January's kit!

I found this photo in the next layout as a free image on Google - and it's a pigeon - yep, a pigeon - not like any pigeons we have here in Illinois - but this little guy is gorgeous. I knew that the photo would work perfectly with the papers and flowers. Again, I combined elements from the Main Kit, Mixed Media Kit, Flower-Add-On and Embellishment Add-On. There is so much product in the kits and add-ons that one could keep creating and creating!

I made this next page for one of the monthly challenges over at the C'est Magnifique Kits Blog - the Mixed Media Challenge - and this month, Evelyn Walter (one of our very talented Designers) is hosting the Stencil Bump challenge. Evelyn has a video on the blog to explain the stencil bump technique. So, click on the direct link above and jump over and check it out and then grab a stencil and join in (there is a prize for the winner).

And, there is another challenge going on right now with another one of our awesome designers, Nadine Carlier. Here is a link to Nadine's Use Your Scraps challenge. For this month's challenge, Nadine has indicated that you can make a card, tag or ATC - using your scraps. So, grab some of those scraps that we all keep (we all do - thinking we will use them for something - well, something is here. And, Nadine has an awesome video showing you how she made her gorgeous ATC from the scraps from this month's kit.
My ATCs for Nadine's challenge are below. Why not join in and clear out some of your scraps - and, maybe, win a prize!

For my final project, I used the Prima heart canvas mini album that was in this month's kits and this is what I came up with. The front cover, the back cover and then the pages in between.
