National Papercrafting Month Blog Hop - Live Your Day

Did you know it is National Papercrafting Month?!  Well, it is and Close To My Heart has released these exclusive pocket scrapbooking cards to help you celebrate!  It coordinates perfectly with our new Everyday Life Planner that was recently released.  The cards are 4" x 6" and 4" x 3" and the images are the same on both the front and the back, allowing you options as you create with them.  You will see how I incorporated them below.  Aren't they fun AND gorgeous?!
If you are coming from Kirsten's Blog you are on the right track.  You can find a list of participants by clicking here should you get lost along the way.

I used two of the 4 x 6 cards, "Follow Your Heart" and "Don't Quit Your Day Dream" to make the focal points for these two pages in my new planner.  It is a goal-setting layout while reflecting on some fun and success I experienced towards the end of 2015.  The layout was created on the My Crush Everyday Life Pages that were designed to fit in the Everyday Life Album.
Gold Sequins, Aqua Shimmer Trim, and Purple Gem Hearts were added to the left page for some dimension and bling.  A gold sticker - the heart inside the scalloped circle, from our Fundamentals Sticker Sheet, was added to the corner.
All of the same products were used on the second page.  I love the Fundamentals Basic Gold stickers and you can see I have used them throughout the spread. The "tabs" were especially fun to use and the one on the right, that says 2016, is on a PML card.  It is interactive and contains my journaling for the layout.  The light purple matte, behind the Don't Quit Your Day Dream" PML card is layered on another PML card from the Live Your Day pack.  I added some white "Glitter Paper", from our beautiful and great Glitter Paper Packs just for some added bling.  (We offer it in a variety of colors and it is top-quality!  No shedding on your projects nor tabletops!)
I hope you love this as much as I do and again, the photo does not do it justice (no matter how hard I tried).  I love looking at it and I think it will be the continued inspiration I need all year to achieve my business goals through Close To My Heart!

Thank you so much for stopping by and now...go check out and see what fabulous artwork you can find on Wendy's Blog!

Happy hoppin'!
