I have had a package of Skylark Picture My Life Cards staring at me from a corner of my desk for months. I haven’t got into the pocket scrapbooking craze so I was looking for another way to use them. It’s been hot here this week (OK, not Texas hot) and I would much rather be inside in front of a fan. I decided that maybe it was time to pull out those cards and do something with them.
So, here’s what I came up with.
Yesterday while I was hiding in the house I decided to
waste spend some quality time on Pinterest. I decided to do a search for Card Sketches and ended up creating a new board – boy do I like hot weather! I found this great sketch my Julie Tilman and today I created a card with the PML cards and the scraps I had left from my Skylark paper packet.
There is no stamping on this card…I layered some paper on a base of Kraft cardstock positioned the PML card. The dragonfly is cut from the Skylark paper, I just centered my Cricut and it cut a 1.5 inch circle perfectly. See the piece of chevron paper – it’s the zip strip from another paper in the packet. I simply embellished it with two clear sparkles because “a little bling never hurt anything”. I LOVE how this turned out and have already started sorting my cards for some additional cards.
The second project is just a fun little journal. I’m still learning how to use my binding machine so it didn’t turn out exactly how I wanted, but it’s pretty cute none-the-less. The PML cards are all double sided so I just had to pick out which ones I wanted to use and magically I was done.
I can’t wait to play with more Picture My Life Cards!
What would you do with them?
