New Idea Book Simply Inspired Blog Hop

Welcome to My Sweet Studio.  If you’ve come from the amazing Dana Kessler’s blog, you’re on the right path.

The Close To My Heart Spring Idea Book is the best one yet – and my favorite thing in it (so far!) is the new Picture My Life Kits.  In this post I am working with the beautiful   Z1948 Balloon Ride .  There are so many ways you can use this innovative new Paper Crafting tool!

Simply put these pre-made Cards into the various-sized Memory Protectors – along with your photos – and you’ll be able to compile an entire, beautiful and affordable, album in a flash ~ but don’t stop there!  There are so many other ways to use these amazing kits!

They are the perfect complement to Traditional Scrapbooking and My Crush Pages.

Plus, you can create gorgeous and quick cards, notes, postcards, gift tags, etc.

In the above photo you can see how I organize my cards with various-sized Binder Clips.  The cards are easy to organize and find in our Close To My Heart Medium Organizer.

The patterns in the cards perfectly complement the Balloon Ride Paper Pack and accessories for even more uses.

Balloon Ride Mini Album

This mini-album was quickly made with Name Badge Holders.  All I did was trim my photos, add some card stock mats and distress the edges with a little ink.  Then I tied the badge holders together with a variety of ribbons – super fast & easy!

Notice how the colors are so easy to work with and blend so nicely together but still give a unique quality to each page.

You’ll love the versatile Sentiments and great Icons for Journaling, Titles, Sub-titles, Focal points and more.  Don’t be afraid to cut them up and use them to fit your needs.  Plus, you can mix & match the flexible themes for the perfect look and feel for all of your Paper Crafting Projects.

 Thanks for visiting my Sweet Studio.  Now on to Fancy Melissa’s Blog. If you get lost, you can find a complete list of hoppers on Dana’s Blog.

      No, I don’t sell them but you can find them in any office supply store or clearbags.com. Buy the 3×4 size to use with the Picture My Life Cards for a quick and easy album!
