Hello and welcome aboard our Close To My Heart Live Your Day National Papercrafting Month Australasian Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Jenny's Blog The Creative Heart, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post

This month, in honour of National Papercrafting Month you can purchase the exclusive Picture My Life™ Live Your Day cards for only $13.50.  This collection was designed to coordinate perfectly with the sensational Everyday Life™ 2016 Planner Pages and My Crush® Everyday Life Pages, so you can seamlessly integrate pocket scrapbooking into your 2016 planner. Whether in the planner or on their own, these cards make it easy to preserve your everyday moments all year long. The set features twenty 4" x 6" cards and thirty-six 3" x 4" cards. Each card features the card design oriented vertically on one side of the card and horizontally on the other, so you can pick which orientation works best with your project.

National Papercrafting Month is all about celebrating the joy and delights of creating heartfelt cards, scrapbook albums and other decorative paper crafts.   The Live Your Day PML cards are perfect for celebrating the here and now as well as those precious moments throughout the year, while adding a special touch to your papercraft projects.  

I am so excited to have the new CTMH Everyday Life Planner for 2016 and I thought these Live Your Day PML cards were just perfect for adding a special decorative touch to my planner! I just love the inspirational messages on the 4" x 6" cards, so I added them to the monthly dividers in my planner with some Shimmer Trim.  Now each month, I can be inspired anew with these motivational sayings and quotes.

I also created these two very simple, super easy cards with some of the leftover PML cards.  I love how quickly they come together with the larger patterned PML cards used to create a decorative base and words from the cards used as ready-made sentiments.  

For the first card, I cut off one of the ends of the 4" x 6" floral-design PML cards so it measured 4" x 5 1/4", rounded the corners and adhered it to a white card base.  I cut the sentiment "Be Happy" from a small PML card.  I dovetailed the ends of Black Cardstock and Silver Shimmer Trim and added them behind the words. I added a Pixie butterfly cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (p. 41) and decorated the card with Clear Sparkles.

For the second card, I cut off both of the ends the decorative heart-patterned PML card to measure 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered it to a white card base.  I cut a strip of Lagoon Fundamentals Paper and dovetailed the end, adhering it to the right side of the card.  I then cut the word "Hello" from another PML card and mounted it with 3-D Foam Tape.  As I said before, it is very simple, quick and super easy to create cards using these Live Your Day PML cards!
