C'est Magnifique 2016 Pinspiration Party

Hello C'est Magnifique friends!  Today is a day of new beginnings, when we all make changes and try new things.  With that being said, this new year with C'est Magnifique we will be doing some different challenges to inspire your creativeness and ours!  Instead of our normal sketch challenge we will be having a Pinspiration Party every month! Everyone loves a party and we are sure you will love this one too!  

What is a Pinspiration Party you ask?  You create a layout based on the photos we have put together in a collage. Inspiration boards such as this one are used to inspire you in many ways.  For example with our first mood board you can add bling as in the center photo with crystals and beads.  It also has metals that you can draw inspiration from by adding metal pieces to your project.  The flowers in each of the photos are beautiful and colorful and add romance and beauty to any layout.  We all love flowers!  The bicycle along with the picture of Peonies offers inspiration with it's vintage feel. And last but not least the beautiful lacy gown gives us all fantasies of a dreamy romantic Cinderella story with lots of layers and beautiful lace.

It's that easy!

Our first challenge begins today with our first Pinspiration Party!  We hope you will all play along and of course there is a prize to be had so get out your scrapping supplies and get started!  The photos are inspired by our January kit, but you don't have to use the kit to play along.

Here are rules, they are simple and will make your project enjoyable to create!

1. The challenge runs from January 1, 2016 and ends January 31, 2016 at midnight.

2. Create a project using our January Pinspiration Board. You can create a layout, altered project, canvas, cards or  anything that inspires you from this Pinspiration Board.  You can choose inspiration from the photos, colors, textures from one of the photos or all of them!

3.  When you are done, leave a comment on the C'est Magnifique Blog with a link to your blog sharing your C'est Magnifique Pinterest Party Challenge layouts. Please title the Blog Post as January C'est Magnifique Pinterest Party Challenge.

4. Have Fun!  Can't wait to see your projects!!
