Mickey Mini Book

What is a trip without a little book to brag about it??

Secret Sister Gift #2- A Hawaii Mickey Mini book using our Black My Creations Mini Book, Heartstring Paper and Heartstring Picture my Life cards PLUS a bunch of accessories!

I decorated the front with some stamping and another doodled Mickey. Kept is fairly flat and simple though so that the recipient can take it places to show how great her job with CTMH is!

And here are just SOME of the pages in the books. I used PML cards but was not afraid to cut them up to add them as elements to my pages. Again things were kept pretty flat to keep this book portable.

Fun, right?!

So many uses for these great little Mini books!

Wanderful Picture my Life Mini-Album

It is no secret that our Picture my Life cards are versatile and that I LOVE them! Here is another project I made with these cards- a cute little mini-album perfect for summer travels!

My team made this album last weekend as part of our thrive weekend retreat (so fun and more details about it to come later this week).  These mini-books are so easy to make- pick your cards (whichever ones fit your theme) and add any embellishments you might like.  I added complements, cricut cuts and some of the assortment pieces.  I also added liquid glass accents to a few pieces for some added fun.

Punch some holes and add a ring or some ribbon to finish it off! Perfect to be gifted to someone OR taken on a  trip to add your journaling as you go!

Picture my Life Frame

Just another thing you can do with our Picture my Life cards- these cards are from the Chalk it Up kit.  I created this for my daughter’s friend – she was celebrating her 3rd birthday and we wanted to make something special for her!

I used a cut from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge to create my circle background.  I then layered PML cards in different ways on the circle overlay.  I cut some cards apart to add dimension or phrases.  Finished it off with some of the puffy stickers from the Chalk it Up Assortment (LOVE THESE!!).

Cross Canada Blog Hop: Picture My Life

Welcome to the Cross Canada Blog Hop featuring the Picture my Life cards! If you have come from Lucy’s blog then you are on your way and already feeling inspired!!

If you haven’t heard these PML cards are AWESOME!! You can do so much with them- they were designed for pocket scrapbooking- a fast, simple and yet beautiful option to traditional scrapbooking that has gained in popularity the last few years.  But those little cards are so versatile! (If you SEARCH the Picture my Life on my blog you will see some other things I have done with them).

PML card 1

What did I do with mine this time? I used them to create three adorable (and super easy) cards! My top card features 2 Wanderful PML cards – I matted it on some cardstock embossed with our honeycomb folder and some of our Wanderful paper.  I also added some stickers from the Wanderful complements- LOVE this series of products!

Below is another card- the sentiment on the card is a PML card that I trimmed down. I used the zip strip from the Wanderful paper to create my paper ribbon and held it down with mini-stapels (if you have NOT seen our mini-stapler you are missing out!)

My third card is the simplest of all- just a card, some 3D foam tape and some Wanderful paper- so pretty!
