If you scrapbook in modular format, such as Project Life, you’ll be excited to learn that Close To My Heart is debuting its own system of pre-sized card-style elements in the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book coming February 1, 2014.
It’s called Picture My Life™ and will retail for $24.95.
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″ × 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.
There is an opportunity to earn one of the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program kits by becoming a new consultant between now and Dec. 15. Sign up, then sell a minimum of $300 by March 31, 2014 to receive a free Picture My Life™ kit.
Many card programs are very simple patterns or solid colors. Picture My Life™ 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!
The product was designed to fill the 10 included Memory Protectors™ following a guideline of 50% photos to 50% cards (which will give you several different card options leftover to give users choice as they create their custom layout.) However, it’s just a fun and versatile product—you can use it any way you wish! If you use a higher ratio of photos, you can purchase additional Memory Protectors™ separately (all styles sold separately as well as part of the scrapbooking program); you can mix and match cards from different programs, and you can absolutely mix Picture My Life™ with classic 12″ × 12″ layouts, including those from Workshops on the Go™ and coordinating My Reflections™ paper packets.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.
However you preserve your memories, I hope you’ll remember Close to My Heart (and me!) as your source for high-end creative projects or simpler kits—we have both those options and everything in between!
