Cards using Picture My Life cards

Hello!  Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you will like the cards I am posting.  They were so quick and easy to make using a couple of 3x4 cards from a Picture My Life kit.

On the top card, I fussy cut the owl out of one card and attached it on top of another card!  Inked the edges of the PML card and the Cotton Candy cardstock I used and my card was finished!  On the bottom card I used a PML card as it is, without doing anything except inking the edges!  I stamped my sentiment and put a little strip of Washi Tape and the card was done!  On both of these cards I used PML cards from the Chantilly kit.  They are so springy and pretty, but all the kits have cards that can be used when making quick cards!
Check back soon for more ideas on how to use those extra Picture My Life cards!

Mini Album using Picture My Life Cards!

Hello!  Grab a glass of tea and take a look at the mini album I made last week.  I used CTMH KRAFT CARDSTOCK for the cover.  (I used a double layer to give it a little extra strength and to cover the brads on the outside from the binding rings).

I stamped a piece of BAMBOO cardstock with one of the stamps from the FLIGHT OF THE ARROWS stamp set, using SORBET ink.  Then I used one of the 3x4 cards from the SURF'S UP Picture My Life set to finish my cover!  How fast and easy was that?  Well, it was so fast and easy that I used more of those cards for ALL of the inside of my Mini!  I used both the 3x4 and 4x6 cards inside and nothing else!!

They were the perfect size for a mini album and what a great way to use up any extra cards you might have from a Picture My Life Kit!  Fast and easy!!  I haven't added my pictures and journaling yet, but was anxious to post pictures of the album!  What do you think?
Come back to my blog soon to get more ideas of ways to use your left over Picture My Life cards!  There are so many more things you can do with them besides just pocket scrapbooking!
Have a  crafty day!  Thanks for stopping by!

Remember layout

Here is a layout I made recently using Close To My Heart SKYLARK paper.  I have to confess, this paper collection didn't appeal to me at first, but I thought I would give it a try.  I like it better now!  For this layout I used the whole sheet and didn't have to do much embellishing then.  I did use the zip strip on one side (I love our zip strips that come on the B&T sheets!).  I inked along the edges of the mat and used our Cricut ARTBOOKING cartridge to cut out the REMEMBER.  Now all I have to do is find the perfect picture and my layout is done!
