Picture My Life ~ Stampers With An Attitude (Blog Hop)

This month, some members of our Stampers With An Attitude team are creating artwork using Picture My Life cards from Close To My Heart.  The double-sided cardstock-weight cards feature journaling spaces, sentiments, and icons that are perfect for archiving photos and tidbits you want to remember.         

If you have come here from Melissa's My Heartfelt Sentiments blog, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one, or visit each blog from the list at the end of this post.    


This card took 20 minutes to create, no stamping or ink involved.  The longest time was just looking through the different cards available in the Chalk It Up Picture My Life (PML) Scrapbooking Program and trying to decide what to use.  The sentiment with the glasses really struck my fancy, along with the black with white dots PML card.  These are both included in the Chalk it Up Picture My Life Scrapbooking Program.  Each package of the program contains 44 4"x6" cards (2 each of 22 designs) and 78 3"x4" cards (3 each of 26 designs).  These PML cards are perfectly sized and styled for a quick and easy memory keeping project.  All of the PML cards have nice, rounded corners.  The CTMH Corner Rounder has the same arc as the PML cards, so it is easy to coordinate your cardstock with the same rounded corners. 

A bit of texture was added to the sentiment card by applying Liquid Glass over the eye glass lens, and placing some Sparkles at the temple of the eyeglasses.  In order to give the Lagoon cardstock behind the sentiment piece a bit of detail, it was embossed using the Dot embossing folder.  This details coordinates with the pattern on the black with white dots PML cards.  Using that black with white dots card as inspiration, black and white Shimmer Trim were used to continue the black & white theme, along with a white star and black crystal.  Since black & white are always considered opposites, this qualifies for the Opposites Attract challenge this month on the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog.
