"La Vie En Rose" Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Australasian "La Vie En Rose" Blog Hop, if you have arrived from Wendy's Expressions from the Heart  you are in the right place, if you arrived here by chance I hope you like what you see. You can continue the hop by clicking on the link at the end of this post.

We are showcasing the "La Vie En Rose" collection, the papers are just beautiful and the compliments pack will add lovely embellishments to any project.



My niece had a baby girl in August 2014 and I am embarrassed to say I have only just scrapped these photos. Isn't she a beautiful baby, she is my mum's 16th great grandchild. Her big sister was very happy to show her off. It was a labour of love to do this layout. I used layout 10 from Volume 2 of  the "Make it from Your Heart" book  as my inspiration. The Cricut cut outs are from the Artbooking cartridge and the stamped images are from the Stamp of the Month December 2013 "Special Care"

This second project is a Joy Fold Card and you can find instructions here to make the card. This card will fit into a standard 4 1/4" x  5 1/2" envelope. I used the January Stamp of the Month Beloved Bouquet S1601 as it perfect with the La Vie En Rose papers. I stamped the rose 3 times using Pixie Ink Z2644 on Pixie Cardstock, then layered them after cutting two of the roses slightly smaller. This gives the rose the 3D effect. Topiary Ink Z2155 was used for the leaves.  3D Foam Tape Z2060 was used to adhere each layer of the rose and then adhere the rose and leaves to the front of the card. The stamp set Holiday Tag Occasions D1560 was used for the sentiment.

All products used in these projects can be purchased from my CTMH online shop here.
