Picture My Life – more FUNN than a Barrel of Monkeys with Glitter

As my former landlord would have said, “Feature this…”
Picture My Life cards (you get a few less than a ga-zillion) are just perfect for:
1. Add to My Crush pages
(the “Cherish the Day” pocket is a 4″ x 6″ card folded in 1/2 to make a handy dandy pocket.

2. Make cute cards in a DASH! 
Don’t forget you can stamp on them, too! 
Can you find the stamped images?

3. doll up the mundane little office supply notebook 
with a 3″ x 4″ card, some Washi Tape, and some images from other PML cards!
This one is going in my car to jot my thoughts which always happen while I drive to work.

4. Make a darling little mini album
just using cards!
*> Abracadabra <*
I threw in some pixie dust to make it more FUNN.
I got the idea from someone else, I can’t recall who. Sorry.
I lined up the first 2 pages, opened them up, and taped them together for strength.
Then I Washi taped them for cute.
Right page has a smaller card taped to it – you can lift it, too!

Line up the next page, tape, then Washi tape.
Didn’t do much to these.

Same thing – looks like I forgot to Washi tape, but I did remember to add a flappin’ card.
First I used “regular” tape to be sure the 3″ x 4″ stayed put.

Same thing – remembered the Washi tape down the middle this time – actually 3 times.
Because the right side has not one, not just two, but three smaller cards all straggerdly like.
Check it out!
Add photos, quotes, toothpicks from a favorite restaurant, ticket stubs, or whatever your 
little ol’
I added tabs for grabs from….say it with me….Washi Tape!

Punched a hole (one page at a time) at the top and added a golf pencil.
Ran a bead of Liquid Glass around the twine line on the pencil first for better adhesion.
Tied the twine, twisted it tightly, and added….WASHI TAPE!

5. Make a traditional layout using Picture My Life cards!
Why, looky here!
Didn’t use Washi Tape except in the pendants. 
There are some stamped images, too.

Pretty quick way to put some cute in a layout, now isn’t it? 
Come on, you know you are thinking, I can do that!

Punched the “Love GROWS Here” from a 3″ x 4″ card and the Scallop Circle Punch.
The paper you don’t recognize being in Balloon Ride is from a cut up PML card!
A little can go a long way!

This sentiment was also trimmed from a card.
When you look closely at the heart, you can see I stamped it on a scrap from a PML card.
Waste not, want not!

Plus you get a bunch of these cool pocket page protectors with the kit 
so you can make your own PML-esque cards from scraps!
Currently there are 8 Picture My Life kits available.
This post only features the cards from Balloon Ride.
