Picture My Life Organization

(double click photo to enlarge)
We are currently doing some upgrades to our home, so we've been surrounded by power tools, paint, building materials and lots of "stuff" lately.  I just have to be patient while things are under construction, but I'm craving order and organization.  After opening up one of my boxes of new CTMH goodies, I found the perfect solution to satisfy my cravings.  Inspired by the 3 new Picture My Life (PML) kits to add to my collection, I decided to set up a PML organizer.  This will be the perfect tote for home or crops to work on my PML scrapbook pages!  

My PML Tote with CTMH Supplies:
Z4139 Medium Organizer $19.95
Six Picture My Life kits - various themes
New Ribbons and Shimmer Trims
Washi Tapes
Small Embellishments - Z3009 Chalk It Up Assortment, Sparkles & Enamels
 (custom touches can be made to PML cards with the ribbons, shimmer trims, washi tapes and small embellishments.)

I created file folder dividers to separate the PML kits by theme using the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge.  The file folders I cut were on page 47, Accent 2, "U" key, 5 1/4."  I am having so much fun with the washi tapes!  I used some to label the outside of the box and some as file labels on the dividers.  

While my house will be under construction for a while, 
it sure feels good to have a creativity kit all organized and ready to go!

CHALK IT UP September Club Kits

Here are the first club kit layouts from our brand new, beautiful Annual Inspirations Idea Book!  Yes, these layouts are exactly what you need for your children's school and school activity photos . . . but they can also be used for ANY general themed photos.  I used the school-themed chipboard pieces from the Chalk It Up Complements package, but there are plenty of other general-themed pieces you can use to change the theme of your layout.

Supplies needed:
Chalk It Up Paper Packet
Chalk It Up Complements
Chalk It Up Assortment

Club members will preorder this kit during August club parties.  If you are not a club member, you are still welcome to create these layouts.   When you order the above supplies from my website, message me and I'll be happy to send you the cutting guide.
