This album went together quite quickly as I used the The NEW Artiste Cricut Cartridge and La Belle Stickease as my main items! 

The new Artiste cartridge is AMAZING!!!  When I started to create this 6x6 memory showcase (only $3.95!) I tried to use ONE key on the Artiste cartridge…the “Be Mine” key.

Check out the images on this key…

 I love the sparkle and glitz that you can add with the Pixie Alphabet
but for the Stickease Butterfly, I added a bit of 3D foam tape to make it pop and added our Silver Glitz Glitter gel to make him shine! 
 The NEW Black Striped Ribbon and Boutique Assortment (black, metal rose) completed this page.

Other items used on this page…
La Belle Vie_6x6 accordian album velvet rubon close upThis is a simple, but FUN page.  I used the Black velvet rub ons! 
These are not new items…but we DO have 2 sets of NEW velvet rub-ons – check them out! 

However, this was MY first time using velvet rub-ons…so they are new to me – LOL! 
I loved the ease of using these…they were very easy to apply and I LOVED the effect it left!  I used a lot of images from the Artiste cartridge on this page and then added the finishing touch of clear sparkles – sorry, they didn’t photograph nice.

I hope you enjoyed this detailed look at our NEW La Belle Vie Paper pack!!!
