Picture My Life Blog Hop

Thank you for joining our Blog Hop where this month we are featuring Picture My Life Cards from Close To My Heart and creative uses of them. PML cards are commonly known as "pocket cards".
You can buy specific package of PML Cards (some which are on clearance) and they are also included in each of the paper packs. Each paper pack comes with two sheets of them, each side with cards of different orientation, allowing you to use them in your layouts, cards or whatever else your heart desires! I chose to use the Summertime Picture My Life Cards in my artwork.

If you are coming from Haley's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants by clicking here.
I created this 12" x 12" layout using Pattern 20 from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 3 How-To Book, and incorporated a few of the pocket cards in its design. 
On this page, the "adventure" banner was fussy-cut from another PML card and placed 3-D on the bottom right area of "my summer". The "it's the little things" circle image was cut from a card, using the Basic Circle Thin Cuts and tucked behind the other card.
The polka dot journaling spot is one of the 3" x 4" cards. The watermelon is fussy-cut from another card and the little "tab", above the top right photo... Yup, you guessed it! It is also from a PML card! A few Stargazer Dots were added on both pages.

I enjoyed using the cards both as for titles and journaling spots on my layouts, as well as embellishments. Fun, right?! They are very versatile! (I haven't put photos on them yet because I'm trying to decide which I want to place there or if I want to create some new photo opportunities this summer.)

To see how others have incorporated them, head on over to Wendy's Blog. I'm sure you'll find other creative uses as you make your way around the hop.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope today is a great start to an awesome weekend!
