I know that we all have our own unique style of crafting. That’s what makes this craft fun! What is your style? Do you have a specific style that you are drawn to? My style is more on the whimsical side….
For example, I LOVE the Clementine paper packet…the colors and prints are TOTALLY ME!! Dakota and Moonlight are 2 of my other favorites in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book. Clementine and Dakota are more countryish (is that even a word??) Where Moonlight, even though it is Haloweeney (and yet another made up word!) has a more whimsical feel to it. These are the types of colors/patterns that I am drawn to….
Which brings me to my post! It was NOT love at first sight with La Belle Vie with me!! It did not give me “goosies” when I saw it! I really could not imagine in my head what I would even create with it…scrapbook pages OR cards.
WELL…the beauty of being a consultant who runs regular scrapbook groups and card classes is that even though I may not be in love with a certain paper packet, I have customers who have different styles than I do….SO I went WAY out of my comfort zone and decided to give La Belle Vie a try for my card class in December.
Each month, my card class creates 2 each of 5 different cards. How the heck was I going to come up with 1 card let alone 5 using this paper pack that I was not a huge fan of?? I just took it little by little, starting with the paper that I like MOST out of the paper pack….then just went from there!
