I just discovered Picture My Life Scrapbooking cards through Close To My Heart, and I'm so excited!! My lovely friend, Sheri Ballantyne sent me some amazing 4x6 and 3x4 pocket page cards recently and I couldn't wait to use them. They really are gorgeous! My only dilemma was deciding which side of the card to use, lol!

I put together this pocket page from our family hike at a nearby Provincial Park and the Skylark cards matched my theme perfectly! I used some We R Memory Keepers page protectors and added my pics and journalling cards. I layered on some Simple Stories mini cards, some circles punched with a 1" circle punch and used some retired CTMH papers and stamps. 

I just love the look of these cards - the layered look adds so much interest to the page!

Here's a close up of some of the cards - I used a 4x6 one on the top, layering a bingo card and circle, and a 3x4 one below it that I stamped with a You Are My Sunshine CTMH stamp in Vintage Photo Distress Ink and layered it on top of some patterned paper.

Isn't the sentiment on this card wonderful?!

And, I just couldn't stop myself!! so I made a quick card using this Friend journalling card from the Skylark collection!!

I usually spend hours on a card and this literally took me 10 minutes! What a great idea for another way to use these amazing cards ;)

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you're inspired to pull out your journalling cards and create.
