C’est La Vie – Revisited

Hi there x Sheena here again.

This month I decided to revisit a collection that I had worked with before & really enjoyed, C’est La Vie by Pink Paislee. The combination of pastels, brights, hints of gold plus loads of black and white suits all my scrapping needs.

This time I also got the C’est La Vie chipboard brick and gold alpha & I’ll certainly be getting another pack of these as they are just so versatile.

Love is in the Air.

Using C’est La Vie Paper 2 as my base I built up the layers using some of the pastel papers from this range plus a doily for a soft feel to match this wedding photo of my Brother & his bride. For the first time I’ve left the manufacturers strip on the bottom of the paper & shortened the top. I like the effect & will be doing it again me thinks.

Even thought my title is long because of the colour of the letters they don’t seem to weigh the design down. I added Nuvo Bright Gold crystal drops to a couple of wood veneer to tie in with the other touches of gold.

It was also my first time using the Hey Little Magpie foiled flairs which I will certainly need to stock up on.

Hello Adele.

For my next page I embraced one of the brights in this range. Using Ces’t la Vie Paper 6 as my base I added some bright yellow mist using the packaging technique. My paper didn’t lie flat so I adhered it to black cardstock to straighten it out before roughing up the edges.

The word – Hello is from the ephemera pack & made of acetate so to stop any adhesive showing I only adhered them to my page under the chipboard alphas or under the flowery pattern to hide the tape. The flowers were fussy cut from C’est La Vie Paper 3 and coloured with pro markers to co ordinate with the rest of the papers.

I used C’est La Vie jumble words and washi stickers to add sub text around the photos.lifted on foam for more dimension.

I really enjoyed creating with the C’est La Vie range by Pink Paislee again and would really recommend revisiting some of your favourites again x

    Absolutely stunning pages Sheen, and my word, I never thought someone would make me love yellow so much, that Adele page is just inspired! Oh and the best way to use up all those “Hello” accents that are so current! hehe
