This month I wanted to share a mini album we created at Convention this year.
Take a peek at the cover of this album…

Did you look closely?  Can you see what’s this album is created from? J 

This ENTIRE album is created from leftover Picture My Life (PML) cards!! 

While you won’t find a PML card like the cover (that was created especially for all CTMH attendees J), the rest of the cards WILL be found in the Chalk It UP PML collection!!

A complete PML kit 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)
These products are acid-free, lignin-free, and buffered.

While using the Picture My Life program is a GREAT, FAST way to scrapbook…the kit itself has MANY uses!!  Use these adorable cards as gift tags, card fronts, on traditional scrapbook pages...the list goes on & on. J

To create this mini-album, we added a few 4x6 cards of kraft cardstock- as extra pages…and we used the stamp set HERE WE GO for some added designs. 

The Chalk It UP assortment pack was the PERFECT addition to add a bit of color here & there.

Take a look at a few more of the pages.  J 

On these pages, we stamped the airplane image from the stamp set.

The inside back cover of the book…we added a square of black cardstock & a Chalk It Up “hello” bubble.

While these are not all the pages, this is a GREAT sample to see how little you need to add to create a WONDERFUL mini-album!!
