Now for this fortnight’s challenge. I’m very excited to introduce our sponsor for this challenge:

C’est Magnifique Kits

C’est Magnifique Kits is a US-based company whose kits predominantly feature ‘hard to find’ international papers. You will find papers from Denmark, Poland, France and many other countries. We have also featured embellishments from Australia, the UK and Poland.

 If you are looking for a kit club that serves something a little bit different, come check us out! We would love it if you jumped right in on our forums and gallery. We hope to see you there!

The winner of this fortnights challenge will win a mini kit from C’est Magnifique!!

And this time we challenge you with a technique – SEWING!

Stitching by hand or machine sewing does not matter, just make sure the sewing is prominent in your project!

Our DT has as always come up with some fabulous example. Michelle have used products sponsored by Scrappin’ Patch for this challenge.

The winner of this challenge will win an e-book from the amazing Cathrine Pooler. Here’s a little bit about her: 

Thank you so much for visiting my website! Rubber stamping and scrapbooking have been my hobbies since the 1990′s and became my JOB in 2003!

 My many hats include, being the owner and founder of StampNation, author of Life Scraps…how to scrapbook your life through storytelling, and being a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator.

Spending my days rubber stamping, scrapbooking and teaching others how to explore their creativity is a dream! I do this through my blog, Youtube Videos, newsletter and my membership site, StampNation.

Being a demonstrator has brought me things I never dreamed possible, including being recognized by Stampin’ Up as one of their top demonstrators every year since signing on with the company, including the #4 top demonstrator in 2008 and appointment to the prestigious Advisory Board in 2007.

I am ecstatic to be living my dream, working from home elbow deep in cardstock, markers and rubber stamps while raising 3 beautiful daughters with my husband, Randall and dog, Kenly.

And here’s the link where you can find some more info on the prize, a 136 page book that will help you along in your scrapbooking journey: http://www.catherinepooler.com/pages/lifescraps-2/

We also have a fabulous Guest DT for this challenge, let me introduce the AMAZING


Hi. I’m Lilith. I was born in Leuven, Belgium in 1979. As a child I grew up in South Africa and my parents moved back to Europe when I was a teenager and settled in the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg. I now live in the South of Belgium in the Ardennes. I am a mother to four marvellous but mischievous boys (Damien, Noé (8), Robin (5) and Elouan (3)) and have been married to the most wonderful man for 12 years. I’m a  foreign language teacher. I teach Dutch and English to French speaking students and I LOVE it. Besides my passion for languages and teaching, there is also music, photography and on the top of my list SCRAPBOOKING. I started just after getting married as I wanted to make a wedding album. I really got hooked when my two eldest boys were born in 2003 and I haven’t stopped since. It helps me unwind from my hectic days being a mum and teaching teenagers. Scrapbooking has made me realise that I can be creative and I love documenting my family’s life. It has made me become more confident and willing to have a go.I have also just ventured into the world of art journalling. This is has enabled me to try out new techniques and has given my scrapbooking style a new direction.

Now some fabulous inspiration from our DT, this time Annelie & Missy have used products sponsored by Scrappin’ Patch :
