Welcome to our August Blog Hop featuring alternative ways to use your Picture My Life cards.  To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.  My customers (or if you don't have a consultant) can purchase from my website or by contacting me

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, and I am the beginning.  If you started elsewhere, then you came from Kristine of @ home with Studio K and you are in the right place! 

Close To My Heart now carries thirteen different Picture My Life Scrapbooking Kits.   One of the new kits is Z2018 Chalk It Up

Like all Picture My Life Kits, it includes: 

  • 44 – 4" × 6" Cards (2 each of 22 designs)
  • 78 – 3" × 4" Cards (3 each of 26 designs)
  • 1 – 12" × 12" Designed Cover Sheet
  • 10 – 12" × 12" Memory Protectors™(various designs) 

This kit is great for scrapbooking school memories.  I usually use the cards with the various pocket pages as well as on traditional pages as design elements and as journaling cards.    They can also be used outside of scrapbooking in many other uses.  The 4X3 work perfectly for gift tags.  

One gift I like to make is the layered cookie mix in a jar.  Some of the cards in this kit make great tags for the jar.


The card on the left would be perfect for a gift for a special teacher.  The one on the right would be great for a cookie making date with your child after a good report card.  Both of these cards have been mounted on Desert Sand cardstock.  The recipe to complete the cookies is attached to the back of the tag and the tag is attached with hemp.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Deanne of My Little Piece of the Puzzle.  If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle's Blog, My Creations with Michelle, as she has the complete blog list. 

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring our favourite new products. So mark September 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
