Close To My Heart’s La Belle Vie paper collection brings to mind romance, vintage, shabby chic, beauty, and of course France. I do love the romantic colors of black, mauve, and pink in this collection. And the embellishments - ooh la la – who wouldn’t love the pearls, tulle, bling, and stickers? CTMH really has a vast array of accessories that coordinate very well with La Belle Vie.
This one was a step outside my comfort zone to “see” the possibilities. I like clean lines in my scrapbook pages so getting into the clustering and layering is something I have to work harder to “see”. This did prove that I will never be able to put together one of the beautiful shabby chic layouts that I so admire. Just not going to happen. Brain does not work that way, and I’ll just leave that to the pros.
