I am so extremely excited about the scrapbook program Close To My Heart is coming out with on February 1st. "Picture My Life" is the Close To My Heart version of Becky Higgins' "Project Life. This form of scrapbooking so so do-able for anyone and everyone. It is perfect for the individual who doesn't necessarily want to scrapbook but does want to have a tangible album full of marvelous memories (day to day, special occasions, etc) sitting on the coffee table or displayed nicely on a bookshelf. It is the perfect system to use alongside your traditional scrapbook layouts or even your Studio J layouts! I think these cards will go fantastic with the Close To My Heart Crush Books, too!
Here is some more info on this fabulous new program that I can not wait to get my hands on! I Love that the cards match our paper packs.
Be sure to read how you can get a kit for FREE between NOv. 1st -Dec. 15th!
What is the new Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program? The eight new Picture My Life™ scrapbooking programs feature themes based on some of our most popular paper packets, plus two brand new paper packets. Each individual program features 122 double-sided, designed cards plus 10 unique Memory Protectors™ to hold creative combinations of these cards and your own photos. You get 44 – 4″ x 6″ cards (2 each of 22 designs) which come in 14 vertical and 8 horizontal designs. You also get 78 – 3″ × 4″ cards (3 each of 26 designs) which come in 10 vertical designs and 16 horizontal designs.
What makes the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program different from other card-style programs on the market? Our product features unique Close To My Heart designs, specifically with Jeanette’s signature artistic influence. Many card programs are very simple patterns or solid colors, and our product offers a much more thoughtful approach to design, journaling options and prompts, headlines, and layered, graphical, illustrated or distressed style—each of the 8 kits really is a fresh take that is theme-rich and yet extremely versatile, not just color changing the same core designs. Additionally, our cards are printed on our Background and Texture-weight cardstock, heavier than similar programs on the market, which makes them easy to mix and match with coordinating cardstocks or papers. Our 12″ × 12″ cover page gives you a unique opening page to kick off your album and deliver a finished look, and our Memory Protectors™ remain the same heavy-weight, durable material you’ve come to depend on to protect your photos—absolutely the industry standard!
How is the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program intended to be used? This program is meant to provide you with the ease of scrapbooking life’s moments as they happen. With adorable pre-designed cards featuring unique sentiments, icons, and journaling space, all you have to add is your own photo collection! The several themes can be mixed and matched for more versatility. The prompts on several of the cards will help you creatively journal, and the various assortments of Memory Protectors™ will make your finished products truly unique.
What are the themes/kits that are available in the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program? We have created six individual programs based on some of our most popular paper packets: Later Sk8tr (childhood/sports/boy), Laughing Lola (friendship/teen girls/free spirit), Babycakes (baby/youth/family), Avonlea (family/togetherness/love), Surf’s Up (vacation/travel/outdoors), and Chantilly (childhood/friendship/girl), and two based on brand new paper packets to be released in the February–July 2014 Idea Book.
