Celebrate Your Creative New Year With
La Belle Vie
I am super excited to offer projects with one of my favorite paper kits from the Autumn /Winter Idea Book--La Belle Vie.
First are the Stamp Of The Month Cards featuring S1301, Happy Valentine's.  The fun was made by stamping the image in Slate ink and coloring in with our Watercolor Pencils and blending them with the Waterbrush. Some of the images were cut out and raised with our 3-D Foam Tape.  The monogram card has the smallest rose image displayed on the inside.  The card on the right at the bottom was inspired by consultant Lisa Stenz.  
Products used in these cards:
S1301  Happy Valentine's  (stamp of the month)
D1527 Perfect Fit Frames
X7158B La Belle Vie Paper Pack
Z2173 Slate Ink
Z2147 Smokey Plum Ink
Z2105 Black Ink
Z2111 Chocolate Ink
Z1798  Black Tulle Ink
3505  Watercolor Pencils
1771  Waterbrush
Z1151  3-D Foam Tape
Z578  Corner Rounder   
    If you wish to make the scrapbook pages in January, this is what you will make.
 I will furnish the Bamboo papers for your pages -or- if  you have purchased La Belle Vie paper pack and want to bring the striped paper for your foundation, please feel free.  There is room for one  5x7  photo and two 4x6 photos vertically.  This is great for black and white photos too.
The Three Card Class uses the Avonlea Workshop On The Go Card Kit stamps with La Belle Vie papers.  This is a great way to get more use from your workshop kit stamps. In fact, the script stamp in the Stamp of the Month cards above came from this kit stamp set. Check my calendar for a time when you can come to a Heart Art class to make these cards.

One more thing--if you wish to purchase La Belle Vie papers, you will need to do it this month.  They will be retiring at the end of January.  You may look at all of the La Belle Vie art examples and coordinating stamps on pages 36-41 in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book found on my website at
