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 Joyce's blog you are right on track.

If you ever need to create "Quick & Easy" may want to give Close To My Heart's Picture My Life (PML) pocket cards a try!! 

Let's take a look at my 2 cards today...and then we'll chat MORE about what PML cards are all about.  

Our PML cards, are a pack of (12) 4x3 and (12) 4x6 pocket cards.  Yes...they may have been created for our "pocket scrapbookers"....but I know how much I ADORE them as a cardmaker too!
Here is just a SAMPLING of the 24 card designs that are included in this pack. 

I cut down & trimmed the different PML cards and added some of our Mix-In papers to create card fronts using our BULK White Card Bases & these!!  

Here is a look at the Cedar & Pine PML cards & the Complements I used to create these cards.

The complements are chipboard TAGS....and by adding them into my card design, I was able to add more dimension to my card.  A HUGE thanks for my dear friend Gina Brandstetter & her inspiration for these cards!!  I actually created 15 cards with the entire pack of PML cards....I'll be sharing the rest of these cards on my FB page over the next couple of weeks. :) 

I added a few more products into these card designs...
*Gold Glitter Paper
*Skinny White & Gold Ribbon
*Clear Shimmer Brush
* Loose Gold & Holiday Sequins

I tried to capture the beautiful SHIMMER that the shimmer brush created on the trees.  Can you see it on these photos below?? 

 It was the PERFECT, sparkly accent to adding "snow" the trees, printed on the PML card! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed these fun & easy cards. 

Happy Crafting & have a LOVELY evening!!! 


Now it’s time to Hop on over to Betty's Blog   and see what BEAUTIFUL, crafty item she has to share with us today! :) 

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!!!

  1. LOVE what you did with the PML cards, Krista. The added touches really make them pop.

  2. Lovely cards - and so quick and east too. Love the "snow" o the trees. I really like the evergreen color - I have to start using that color more. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Just got my PML cards, cant wait to get started.

  4. Can see the shimmer brush touch with the photos and I bet it's really sparkly in person!
