CTMH January Special - Live Your Day

Have you tried pocket scrapbooking before? What's that, you say, pocket scrapbooking? Yup, using pre-printed 4" x 6" or 3" x 4" cards you can preserve your memories in just minutes. When you pair your photos, Close To My Heart's Picture My Life cards and a variety of pocket Memory Protectors, the sky is the limit. Don't worry, you can still get inky and sparkly with these PML cards. They work great with traditional scrapbooking and also card making.

Why am I telling you all this? January is National Papercrafting Month, and what better way to celebrate than with these versatile cards in an exclusive collection. The Live Your Day design is only available for the month of January. Did I mention that they coordinate with the sensational Everyday Life 2016 Planner and My Crush Everyday Life pages? The cards are only $8.95. You can purchase a set for your projects at

If you've landed here via our Blog Hop welcome from Tonya's site. I hope you are getting inspired.

I decided to use my Live Your Day cards to make a traditional scrapbook layout. You can see in the images below how easy it is to incorporate them into your project.

Can you find the PML cards on this layout?

I chose the cards I wanted to use with my 12 x 12 layout, then I cut the to fit my design.
I found it easiest to put adhesive on the back of my photo and then adhere the cut pieces of PML cards.

The photo with bits attached. Time to add it to the base page.

Now for a few more bits and bobs from the new Charlotte collection...

It's so easy to incorporate Picture My Life cards into paper crafting.
