Get it before it's gone - Seasonal Expressions 1

Welcome to the Brae-er's Circular Blog Hop!  This month we are focusing on the products we love from the Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book.  Many of the fantastic items in this book are only available to order until the end of March. Hopefully, you will be inspired by the blogs in this hop and get your Seasonal Expressions 1 items before they are gone forever!

There are so many great products to choose from: Heartstrings paper pack and accessories (it's one of my favourite CTMH papers ever), Hopscotch paper pack and accessories, You're The Bomb stamp set (which features many great sayings), the puffy stickers and so much more. 

The product I choose to focus on is the Hopscotch Picture My Life (Z3045). There are enough cards in one small pack to make so many things.  I made two My Creations Mini Books (Z3044 and Z3043).  (These Mini Books were introduced in the Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book but they will continue to be availalbe after March.)

One book is  an overview of the four seasons of 2014, while the other is more of a journal about me (my favourite things, friends, etc.)  Completing these two books took less than half the Picture My Life cards leaving enough to complete some standard scrapbooking layouts, Picture My Life pocket scrapbooking layouts and even greeting cards.  The possibilities for these cards are endless! Better still, the cards make projects so quick to complete. 

The Hopscotch paper and Picture My Life series are so bright and colourful - applicable to so many situations.  I also like that many of the PML cards focus on happiness -  a concept that should be celebrated.

Now all I need to do is add photos, stamps and other items to personalize my mini albums even further!

Here are a few of the pages:

Year in Review - The Four Seasons mini album

Layer two 4"x6"cards for the cover design

Add personal details to this card.  I am
going to add the numbers so that the card says Happy 2014.

Beside the winter themed card, add a 3"x 4" picture.

On the cloud and rainbow card you can add photos or journaling
to celebrate your Spring highlights.

Add a list of summer highlights to the flower card.

Add a fall themed photo to the ornate orange frame card.

All About Me mini album
