10 Reasons I love “Picture My Life”!

PML 77 Sign

It was a blast teaching the Picture My Life Class at our Close To My Heart Annual Convention this year.  I LOVE these awesome cards (favorite product ever!) and it warmed my heart to hear our owner and founder, Jeanette Lynton say the same!  The only problem was that I didn’t have near enough time to teach all the ideas and techniques I wanted to, so I’m putting together a series of classes for those who wanted more, those who couldn’t be there, and those who are new to these fabulous Cards.  I hope you’ll follow along with me as we delve into all the amazing ways to Picture My Life!


WHY do I LOVE Picture My Life? Because they are so beautiful, affordable & versatile!  There’s no end to the creativity, ease and beauty of using these cards!  Here are just a few of the reasons I love them:

  1. Faster, Simpler, Easier!  Create full albums quickly or take a little more time to dress it up – or a little of both – they are super flexible.
  2. Mix & Match your pages!  Your album will still look great – and actually be more interesting – when you use a variety of different types of scrapbook styles – as long as they all have a commonality (the awesome CTMH look!):  Traditional pages, PML Divided Protectors, Stamp to create custom made cards, and even our Studio J On-line Scrapbooking (as well as custom cards made there) – will all blend beautifully together.  Because of our exclusive line of colors and the high quality CTMH look, you don’t have to be stuck with the boring, same look and style on every page.
  3. Great Value!  You get 96 different patterns/designs on 122 cards to give you lots of choices.  You’ll discover awesome focal points, titles, quotes, sayings, etc.  Then don’t forget to cut up your cards to use as Background & Texture paper, tags, banners, etc. and save all your pieces for use on future projects.  There’s so much you can do with each kit!
  4. Use on all your favorite Papercrafting Projects!  Enjoy new inspiration from these cards on quick & beautiful projects like: home decor items, gifts, cards, tags, etc.
  5. Great Titles and Sayings!  Great for Scrapbooking but also use them on Greeting cards, etc.
  6. Awesome Icons! Be inspired by the fun elements on these unique cards!
  7. Perfect for beginners!  Since each kit comes with a large variety of page protectors and 122 cards, plus a full 12×12 2-sided page, you can get started right away without needing a lot of extra supplies!
  8. Perfect for Discouraged Scrapbookers or those who have lost their mojo!   If you’ve felt overwhelmed about the time, cost and mess or about getting “behind” on your scrapbooking, PML is just what you need!  Give it a try – from now on you’ll be excited to scrapbook your families events!
  9. Perfect for the Pro!  No matter what your level of Papercrafting skills or experience is, PML will work for you! But if you enjoy puzzles, paper piecing, quilting, or just working with beautiful paper & textures, you’re going to LOVE it!
  10. Perfect Gift!  At this price and value, you’re friends and family will be thrilled getting one or more of these kits as a gift – for occasions like:  wedding, baby, graduation, birthday, Christmas, and so many more!  Also, consider the value of splitting kits and/or mix & matching kits to give (and get!) more variety.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be exploring more on these topics and showing you how to get the most out of these amazing products.  Watch for one instructional “Class” each week as well as additional posts that will feature art done with all our beautiful card sets.
