December Daily 3013; Days 3 & 4

 
Day 3:
I took a picture of all the paper goods sitting on my kitchen table just in from the Sam's Club run I had done earlier in the day.  In the background is a picture of my Christmas tree with just the lights and the ribbon from the bow on top.  I have never been this late in getting the decorations on the tree... 
 
 
 
 
Here is a peek at my journaling:
 
Christmas Party Preparations
 
The tree is up, but no decorations.  Sam's Club run for upcoming party supplies.  We are responsible for the paper products at the 10u-Raiders Baseball Team Christmas Party.  I saw these blue, silver and white paper goods, which are the team colors and thought they were perfect.  The other products are for our family get-togethers.  I still have to cook other things, but  No washing dishes means more social time.  NOTE TO SELF: Make sure all tree number  tags are hidden!
 
I can see the #3 poking out of the tree in the background.  The best part of assembling a artificial tree is leaving on the tag #s so that you can get them in the right order the first time.
 
Day 4:  The Elf Returns!
 
We will let the journaling explain all the circles and arrow in this picture...
Can you see Carson Standing at the top of the stairs?

 
Journaling for Day 4:
 
Deejay the elf returned today while Carson was at school, but had a terrible fall when he got hit by a nerf football.  Will he return tonight?

Hope you enjoyed viewing my pages this year's album.

Oh December we begin...

I am going to try to stay on track with my December Daily album.  I have already done the prep work, so all I have to do is add pictures and journaling.  See previous post for video on my album.

Here are the first few pages.  As today is December 2, I am on top of my game.  I did blur out the faces and names of the children in the Christmas Play at Church.  Enjoy.
Cover Page:
 Day 1:

Day 2: I read a post in Lysa Terkeurst's Blog that said "Thank God for Smelly Shoes"  and I walked into my laundry room on this Monday morning and this is the site I saw.  I chose to thank God for the dirty shoes and a little dirt on the floor.

Hope you enjoy these first few day of my December Daily.  Hopefully, I can keep up till the 25th!

Picture My Life Scrapbooking Program

Coming Soon.....

This just in straight from Close to my Heart


~ November 7, 2013 ~

Picture My Life™ Scrapbooking Program

Categories: Just For You, New & Now, This Just In
Picture my Life with CTMH Love documenting memories in minutes? Then you’ll love the new Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program, meant for quick and beautiful memory-keeping. This program comes in eight themes, all based on the gorgeous designs of some of our most popular paper packets. Whether you choose to embrace a single theme or mix and match for a truly unique look, you’ll love the ease, affordability, and beauty of the Picture My Life programs. Your own photos are all you need to add to make astounding artwork—in no time at all!

Each program has a theme, from childhood to friendship to travel, but because we have ensured sufficient variety in design and style of each you can easily apply the cards to other themes. Say you love the palette and designs of the Babycakes program but wish to apply a “family” theme—go ahead! It’s one of the unique differentiators and possibilities of the program! With a large quantity of product in each program you will be able to craft creative arrangements all your own. Each program includes 122 double-sided cards plus 10 unique Memory Protectors™ to capture life as it happens, and their versatility and gorgeous designs will transform your albums into masterpieces. On one side of each card is space for journaling, and on the other you’ll find artistic sentiments and icons. Each program is designed to accommodate approximately 100 photos in your included Memory Protectors, so with a balance of photos and cards, you’ll finish with about 20 remaining cards. That means you have plenty of choice and flexibility in which cards you choose to include, making it uniquely yours! Of course, you can easily use more or fewer photos in your project to suit your story’s needs.

Unique to Picture My Life is the included 12" × 12" double-sided cover page with each individual program, using a beautiful My Reflections™ pattern. True to Close To My Heart standards, the cover page offers a finished and cohesive look to your project with its featured high-quality design. The Picture My Life program is so versatile that you’ll find dozens of other ways to incorporate it into your paper crafting. Use the cards to expand other projects you’ve started! For example, if you just got back from the trip of a lifetime and wonder how you will capture all the details, mix the Picture My Life cards with your photos to extend your scrapbook pages. Choose your very favorite photos to scrapbook on 12" × 12" two-page layouts then use coordinating Picture My Life cards and your remaining photos to document the rest of your trip in minutes.

This program is yet another new, fresh addition and option for memory keepers to preserve their memories. The cards enhance the scrapbooking experience—making it even more fun—and they work brilliantly in mini albums, My Crush™ books, as journaling cards on your 12" × 12" classic scrapbook pages, or as gift cards and tags. During the Consultant preview period you will be limited to ordering a maximum of two of each Picture My Life scrapbooking programs and new styles of Memory Protectors, but you’ll be more than excited to have more after that period ends!
