Limited Edition Picture My Life Kits

I have shared with you all before about some of the beautiful Picture My Life Kits that Close To My Heart offers. The quality of these kits is wonderful and I love that the cards in the kit really promote story telling. Close To My Heart has launched two new kits that include 56 cards in each kit and are only $8.95 each!

The two limited edition kits are Heartstrings and Hopscotch and I can’t wait to get some crafty time with these kits this weekend. Some of the cards I am going to just journal on as I don’t have all my photos printed yet and the other cards I will be getting down and dirty in my craft area this weekend.

Heartstrings Picture My Life Kit

I created a little video sharing with you the gorgeous cards that are avaialble in each kit. At only $8.95 a kit I would have to say that these pocket scrapbooking cards are so worth it. Plus you don’t only have to use these for pocket scrapbooking, you can use these on traditional scrapbooking layouts and on cards as well or you could even turn them into a mini album.

Check out the video for yourself and see how gorgeous the cards are. Then you can order them in my shop by clicking HERE and don’t forget to sign up for my Picture My Life Kit Club HERE.


Stamping and Scrapbooking

Stamping on a layout can be daunting for some but there is no reason to be scared to get out your stamps and just have some fun and if you mess up so what you can always fix it or start over, its only paper. I used to be one of those people who had a fear of incorporating stamps into my layouts. I love stamps though and the versatility and creative outlet that they give me. I have gotten over my fear of stamps and now I can’t live without them!

I have incorporated stamps on several projects and I use them not only for my scrapbooking layouts but also for card making and for making my own project life cards.

Recently I had created a layout with the project life app and it inspired me to create a 12×12 layout featuring the same colors. I decided to use my stamps to create the title for the layout as well as some embellishments for the layout.

Here is the layout that inspired me to create my 12×12 layout of my munchkins.

Now here is what I came up with using these colors for my layout. I created a process video for you all to watch so you can see how easy it is to add stamping to your layouts.

Last years True Stamp was amazing and I expect that this year’s event is going to be even better, especially for me because I have acquired quite a few stamps since I have joined Close To My Heart as a consultant. I truly have a love for stamping and all the things that I can do with my stamps such as make my own embellishments, backgrounds, cards, etc…
