Picture My Life™: Endless Possibilities

One of the beautiful things about Close To My Heart products is that they mix and mingle in endless ways! You don’t have to get bogged down using products only for their original intent because with just a little creativity, you can take products to a whole new level.

Your Picture My Life™ layouts are a great place to start. Enjoy these fun ideas for blending some of your favorite products together on a single layout!

Mix and Mingle
Combine traditional pages with Picture My Life pages for a layout that’s unique and on trend. Here we’ve combined a variety-filled Picture My Life page with a more traditional title page. Wouldn’t you agree that together they strike a great balance?

Thanks to our exclusive color palette, you don’t have to stick to one paper packet for coordinating layouts. Check out the Sunset Checkers B&T paper from the Scaredy Cat paper packet mixed with the Polka Dot B&T from the Chalk It Up paper packet on the left page. It’s a match made in heaven! Throw in the Hopscotch Picture My Life program on the right page, and you’ve got one big, happy paper family.

Cut sentiments and shapes from Picture My Life cards to overlay on photos. Elements like these create common themes across your photos that will help tie your layout together with an extra touch of visual interest.The mix of dimension, stamping techniques, and Complements on this title is what makes it so visually intriguing. Don’t be afraid to add multiple levels of texture and color—it will definitely pay off!Blending Families
Do you often find yourself with loads of leftover cards from a bunch of different Picture My Life™ programs? If you’re thinking that you’ll just have to toss them into a pile of craft storage, think again!

Cards from different Picture My Life families can be blended together to create unique layouts like this one. Believe it or not, this layout contains cards from six different programs—can you find them all?

Picture My Life layouts come together quickly and have a finished look, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress them up with a few extra details. For example, check out the awesome embossing at the bottom of this card.Stamping sentiments with an alphabet stamp, trimming with scissors, and mounting with 3-D foam tape will add lovely dimension to your Picture My Life layouts. And you can always add an extra splash of cuteness to any Picture My Life card by adding stick-on embellishments, such as the Stuck On You Puffies.Once your totally unique Picture My Life layouts are complete, be sure to give them a nice home in one of our albums. Our new D-ring albums are just the right fit for your Picture My Life layouts, and they’re available for a steal of a deal this month. Make sure you don’t miss the chance to give your mixed, matched, and magnificent layouts a safe place to live at a superb price!

  1. I am absolutely head over heels in LOVE with the PML kits! I have always been a paper and kit hoarder! I love CTMH and joined CTMH because of the wonderful coordinating paper craft lines! Now you have made me very, VERY happy with adding journaling cards! I love to stamp them, make mini books with them, make hand made cards and banners with them…I just love them. And with some of the PML kits coordinating with some of the older paper lines, I get to still use my scraps!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
