Picture My Life Cards

I am a big fan of Picture My Life. I've been using it to create quick albums, especially those where I have hundreds of pictures for an event. But after attending Close to My Heart's 2014 Convention though, I saw how PML can also be used to make quick cards, My Crush books

So here's my take on creating cards using PML. And this is also probably my last hoorah for Spring/Summer Catalog as we'll be launching the new one come August 1st.

First up is a card from Avonlea Picture My Life kit. I used Cocoa cardstock as the base, then layered it with a 4x6 PML card, then layered it again with 3x4 card which I punched at the top to make it look like a tag. I used Slate Diagonal Striped Ribbon as the tie.  No stamping on this one!

Next I used a card from Skylark PML kit. All the other materials are scraps I have from Skylark WOTG. I also used the stamp set from the kit. This has been a favorite of many but I must confess I think I used this the least.

Below I used Balloon Ride paper as base, then layered it with Balloon Ride PML. I love Balloon Ride, from the paper pack to the PML designs, it's so shabby chic!! I used this month's Stamp of the Month Circus Alphabet to stamp the word "smile" and embellished with the durable triangle studs.

And last but not the least, a Chantilly PML. The paper and cardstock are from the Lollydoodle WOTG kit I have and I stamp the pair of owls from the Owl set. The "giggle, sing, dance" are from the Chantilly PML too, I just cut one of those and used it to add dimension to my card. I wanted to create a light, fun themed card for a change.
