Picture My Life Cardmaking Project

Who says Picture My Life is just for photos?  I have seen people on YouTube use the cards to make greeting cards and I wanted to give it a try for myself.  I've done things like this in the past with My Crush cards but I love the way it turned out with the Picture My Life cards.


This card was made by simply cutting a little from each side of a Later Sk8r 4x6 card and attaching it to a Colonial White card base.  I then added some small strips of silver shimmer trim and I was done.  Super cute and super easy!


For the second card, I started with a Colonial White card base.  I then took one of the 3x4 cards from the Babycakes Picture My Life set and mounted it to a 3.5x4.5 piece of Pear cardstock that had been rounded at the corners.  I then stamped a sentiment from February's Stamp of the Month in Black Exclusives ink.


To finish off the inside, I took another piece of Pear cardstock and mounted it to the inside of the card.  I used the March Stamp of he Month stamp set to stamp the inside sentiment in Slate Exclusives ink.  I used a stamping off technique in Slate and the February Stamp of the Month.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.

I have also started using Journaling cards from PL as card embellishments. I like to add my own sentiment on the front, stamped on a strip. Sometimes I cover up the printed sentiment if it doesn't apply to my theme.
