Picture My Life (PML) Blog Hop

Welcome to this 
Special Blog Hop!

Today, we will be featuring our FABULOUS Picture My Life (PML) cards  from Close To My Heart.    These beautiful cards come in a pack OR are included as "cut apart" cards in each of our featured Paper Collections in the Seasonal Expression 1 mini book.  

Feel free to check out our ENTIRE line of Picture My Life items by clicking HERE.

Now, to continue with this special Blog Hop....

If you have come here from the talented,  Katy's  Blog, you are on the right path!   If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants by clicking HERE

This month we have  20 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing items they created using these FABULOUS new products.   This hop is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Wahoo!! 

Here we go!

For today's creation, I chose to use  the PML cards called Picture My Life Cards - Be-YOU-tiful.  

Here is my set of 3 cards I created.

What a FUN collection of PML cards turned into cards! :)  I created a workshop of 10 cards for my upcoming class & today shared 3 of those cards that used the same stamp set.  


These BEAUTIFUL, PML cards will be retiring at the END of this month!! Please make sure you talk to your CTMH consultant if you haven't had a chance to get these yet! 

The stamp set I used on these 3 cards is the Notes of Inspiration stamp set.  Isn't this a GREAT stamp set?? 

To create these cards, I added the following items to the pack of Be-You-tiful PML cards: 
Juniper Cardstock
Bashful Glitter paper
Peacock Stitched Ribbon
Bitty Sparkles

I also used the Make It From Your Heart, vol 4 CARDMAKING How-To-Book for 2 of these cards.  Take a look at pattern 16 & 22...I love how easy it is to use our sketch book to create quick cards. :)  

Here are a few close up images of the 3 cards above.  
I used Peacock & Pewter inks to stamp the fun!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you were INSPIRED today!! :) 

Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Vickie's  Blog to see her beautiful creation!


Be sure to visit ALL the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!   We LOVE to hear any feedback you’d like to share as well, so feel free to take a moment & leave a comment.

Blessings to you for a WONDERFUL day!!!

Joyful Stars Blog Hop - Stargazer layout with flowers

Welcome to our monthly hop!

We're excited to share our creativity with you using PRODUCTS
from Close To My Heart!!

Come on in and see what BEAUTIFUL projects my crafty friends have creating using the AMAZING products from Close To My Heart!!

 This blog hop is easy to do…just click on the link at the end of the post to go to the next creation!!  If you get lost along the way, CLICK HERE to see the list of this month’s hoppers! 

If you have arrived from my friend, Andrea's blog you are right on track.

  Today I wanted to share the 4th layout I made for my upcoming Stargazer Workshop Class....take a look! 

(you can click on the photo to enlarge it. ;) )

Each month, I have a scrapbooking class at my home, and we use the WONDERFUL "Workshops your Way" kits from Close To My Heart.  While we adore CTMH's pages, the card instructions that are included are not something most of my ladies use.  So....we take the extra papers, add a few sheets of Cardstock & create a 4th set of pages....ta-da!! :) 

Here is what is included in the Stargazer WYW kit...

Let's take a closer look at the details of this layout. 

This time, I added some stamping to the 4th layout...this is something we haven't done in a while!

My personal GOAL when creating this layout - was to turn the "boy like" Stargazer paper collection & make it have a "feminine" twist to it :)  

I used the stamp set called Chelsea Gardens Scrapbooking.  These flowers are SO pretty!!  AND....while we did stamp & cut them out, they look just as nice stamped directly onto the paper too!! 

To create these flowers, I used Ruby & Cranberry inks to create the two-toned look....

Juniper ink was used for the leaves. :) 

I used some leftover Stargazer Complements (hearts) and the new gray grosgrain ribbon & Stargazer dots to finish this 2 page spread.

That's all for today....thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to go CREATE something on your own! :) 

Now it’s time to Hop on over to Joyce's  blog and see what beautiful, crafty item she has to share with us!

Happy Hopping and we’ll see you on the 9th next month, when the Joyful Stars team members will be sharing more artwork using Close To My Heart products!    

Blessings to you for BEAUTIFUL day!!!
