Pocket Card Perfect Special

There’s nothing quite like a gorgeous pocket card! Our Picture My Life™ Cards were originally designed for pocket scrapbooking, but I love using them for card bases, photo mats, journaling, and embellishments. When our Pocket Card Perfection special was announced, I knew that I had to stock up on these two NEW pocket card packs.

The Lovely and Party Time Picture My Life™ Cards each come in sets of 24 cards, 12 each in 2 sizes—3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″. These cards are all double-sided and feature unique designs, sentiments, icons, and patterns, making it easy to integrate them into your artwork alongside the papers and stickers from both collections.

From February 15 through March 31, you can save on a new selection of exclusive Picture My Life™ Cards. These gorgeous cards have been designed to coordinate with the Lovely and Party Time paper collections, which are featured in our 2020–2021 Core Products Catalog.

The cards designed for the Lovely collection feature the same soft, pastel hues and elegant style that are so prevalent in this collection. This is one of my favorite pattern paper collections this year. I can’t wait to show my VIP Group a few of the cards I made with this paper pack.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Party Time Picture My Life™ Cards are sure to please with their playful designs and vibrant color palette! The Party Time collection is perfect for any celebration. With their beautiful designs, it’s not hard to see why these cards are something to be excited about!


Both the Lovely and Party Time Picture My Life™ Cards are available individually, but you can also purchase them in the discounted Pocket Card Perfection Bundle, which is available at 15%-off discounted price! These adorable cards will only be available for a limited time, while supplies last—don’t miss the opportunity to craft with them!

Love Your Stash Day Three | Pocket Cards & Paper

Are you ready to Love Your Stash and start using some of your ever-growing papercraft collection? Throughout February, the Creative Design Team will be showing you unique ways to use your stash, and we are asking you to join us in this challenge. As you complete each weekly challenge, use #cdtloveyourstash when you post your creation. 


This week, our Creative Design Team is tackling paper and pocket cards that we have “collected” through the years. I will admit, it was very freeing to grab whatever I wanted to use from my craft space – It allowed me to pull a variety of elements together from both current and past collections to create a page for my daughter.

I began pulling out some Mix-In papers that were collecting dust and paired them with some Wood Grain paper. Mix-Ins are some of my favorite patterns to use, but I often overbuy them because I enjoy them so much. 

After creating the background, I reached for some pocket cards that would complement the photo. Lately, my brain has had a difficult time concentrating, and I become easily overwhelmed. As I was trying to figure out PML placement, I became frustrated with my lack of brainpower. Thank goodness I have such a wonderful husband who helped me narrow down the elements for this page. 

I chose a few pocket cards from the Bloom with Grace collection along with some black and white cards from an older collection. I honestly have no idea when these are from, but I know that they are from Close to My Heart. 

I also added a few stickers from the Bloom with Grace collection to match the theme of the layout. The other elements on this page are from recent and retired die cuts that are stored in my die cut binders. (I talk about these in my video.) 

Once all the elements were on the page, I went back the next day to see what needed fixing. I am sure that I am not the only one who does this. Sometimes, I need to walk away from a project and come back to process what changes are needed.

You can view the creation of this layout as you watch my process video.  I show you how I used pocket card as photo mats, titles, and journaling cards.

Cute as a Bug Scrapbook Page | Video Collab

I am so excited to share with you another video collab from our Creative Design Team. This group of ladies has been such a blessing to me and it all started because sweet Jayma Malme had the idea to get all of us together to create some projects each month – JUST FOR YOU. This month, we are showing you some Creative Ways to use Tags and you are NOT going to be disappointed.

I decided to create a Sweet as a Bug layout with an”extended tag” background for these adorable photos of my nephew.  Isn’t he the sweetest??  He happens to be almost 21 right now, so I am sure he is going to roll his eyes when he sees this layout.   

For those of you who prefer to head right on over to the video collab, you can click on the video below and it will take you to the list of tutorials on YouTube.  For those of you wish to see a few more details about this layout, you can keep on reading.

This layout was created using a variety of scraps from the Stitched Together & Mixed-in Papers.  I chose to use our Tags & Tabs Thin Cuts to create the illusion of an elongated tag behind the photos. All I did was cut two of each tag from Stitched Together and Mix-Ins paper AND a PML Card from the Stitched Together pack. 

I love having PML (Picture My Life) cards on hand for projects.  They are designed for pocket scrapbooking, but I have found that they are great to use as photo mats, journalling boxes, and for little accents like that tag when you don’t have a paper to match. 

In fact, I used quite a few of those PML cards on this project. One as a journaling box, one as a sentiment accent, one for the tags, and one for that adorable large ladybug. Yep, I cut that little gem out by hand and I am glad I did.  It is the perfect accent for this page. 

I also added a few Ladybugs from the sticker sheet and some delightful wooden buttons onto the page.  At the time, I wasn’t quite sure if I would use “Cute as a Button” or “Cute as a Bug” for the title, so I decided to add both elements on this layout. 

To create movement, I added thread trails with White Twine to help those buttons to feel “grounded” and create the illusion of flying ladybugs.  When making a thread trail, simply draw loops onto your page with a pencil then trace the lines with a fine tip glue pen. (I like Art Glitter Glue & Tombow glue pens because they dry clear.) The twine is laid down onto the glue trails and topped with a few wooden buttons. Really simple to do and it makes a fun addition to any project. 

My last minute addition to the page was the title.  Like I said earlier, I was struggling with this and wanted something to fill that empty corner of the page.  

I started out trying to created something on my Cricut, then realized that I hadn’t use stamps for a title in a long while, so I dug out that big, bold Chronicle Type alphabet and went to work.  I used a stamping platform to avoid making any stamping mistakes, added a few tiny hearts, and label-maker label to complete the title.   


All in all this layout turned out super cute and I can’t wait to add it to my scrapbooks.  I hope that you enjoyed this video collab project and that you learned a few new ways to creatively use tags.  You can view the full list of Creative Design Team creations HERE on my blog or in the description of my video
