4" x 6" Football Mini-Album with Picture My Life

As you know, there is a great special going on this month with Picture My Life (reminder about it at the bottom of this post).  I thought I'd share another idea using our Picture My Life (PML) cards today.

You know those little cheap-o 4" x 6" photo albums you can buy for a couple of bucks at Walmart, K-mart, Target or any of the bargain stores? Well, they are perfect for an inexpensive mini-album with PML cards!  Our son, Tannon is a college QB at Southern Utah University.  He was so excited to come home from his 2-year mission for our chuch a year and a half ago and fight for the starting spot. He was doing great when a major injury hit. He had to have shoulder surgery this time last year and it put him out for the whole season last year. It also had an affect on his place on the depth chart for this year.  He will not be the starting QB this year and he's pretty bummed.  The good news is he's got several more years (4) and is confident he'll earn the spot in the future.  Tannon has never NOT been the starting QB at any point in his football career so this is a new place to be for him. He's discouraged but also determined to earn his way. 

Knowing his mixed emotions, I decided to put together a little book of his football career to this point as well as a little encouraging note from me. This little book came together in a couple of hours.  All I used was cardstock, PML cards (from the Later Sk8r package), White Enamel Stars, the Black Enamel Stars from the Scaredy Cat Assortment, Bakers Twine Neutral Assortment, and Triangle Stud Durables.  There is a supply list with links at the end of this post.

Here are pics of a few of the pages. There are many more that I didn't photograph.  These little books hold quite a lot!

I gave Tannon his book this week and he loved it.  I'm so glad I took a little bit of time to put it together to show him my love for him. Sometimes it only takes a small bit of time to make a big difference!

Now, on to the reminder on how this month's special works. Be sure to take advantage of it by ordering on my website before the end of August.

Our Picture My Life scrapbooking kits are awesome (more info below), and during August, when you purchase one of them, you will receive your choice of one of our 8 Memory Protector 10-packs for only $3 ($9.95 value).

We have 13 beautiful kits to choose from, with themes that fit just about anything that could possibly be happening or have happened in your life. Each kit contains a 12" x 12" cover page to begin your album, 10 coordinating memory protectors,  and 122 double sided cards (in 3" x 4" and 4" x 6" horizontal and vertical designs).  I'll be sharing Picture My Life ideas here and there throughout the month of August, but the photo above gives you a great idea of the traditional way they were designed.  And when you consider all that comes in your kid, at $24.95, that's a serious deal! Add to that the fact that you can get another 10 memory protectors for $3 and that takes your purchase level to $27.95...which is more than half way to the $50 required from me for a FREE catalog. Add an album to that and you're there. Not only that, when you spend $50, you also get the darling August Stamp of the Month for only $5 ($17.95 value).

Hawaii, Stamp of the Month Art, August Special, FREE Catalog, and Kidney Stones

Thanks for your patience with me this week as I have worked on passing this kidney stone (and living through it!).  Although I'm not quite there, the pain is now minimal and I am beginning to function again. Thanks to everyone for your well wishes and prayers!

Today is Friday, something many people call "Aloha Friday," and it's SERIOUSLY Aloha Friday at the Pedersen house!  Yesterday I finished earning the February 2015 week long trip for two to the Disney resort on Oahu (Aulani) courtesy of Close To My Heart! It has been since about 2005 or 2006 that Dan and I went to Hawaii together. This is going to be FUN! Because YOU, my wonderful customers and your purchases from me are a big reason that I was able to earn this trip, I want to say a BIG THANK YOU!  Thank you for your business, thank you for being the best customers on earth, and thank you for your friendship! I am the luckiest CTMH Consultant around.  Not only do I have the BEST customers, but I also have the BEST team!  Want to join me on the 2016 trip (earning period is October 1, 2014 - September 30, 2015)?  Join my team now and I'll help you set and reach goals to get there!

Lastly (but certainly not leastly) it has been over a week since I've shared any art.  Thanks again for your patience (this is beginning to be a post full of thank you's, isn't it?  That's not a bad thing! I'm feeling extra grateful for so many things today).  I've posted a 6" x 6" card I created with the darling August Stamp of the Month (What a Hoot) at this top of this post. Here's a detail shot.  Just like in this post, I mixed and matched papers from 3 different paper packs. I also used one of the five new Close To My Heart colors that debuted this month, Thistle. I love this purple!

To get this stamp set for only $5 (available only in August and valued at $17.95), just spend $50 (before shipping and tax).  If ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add this set before you check out.  Need some ideas on products to purchase to reach your $50?  Never fear! Just check out the supply list that I used to create this card at the end of this post.  It is complete with photos and links to each product on my site.

Don't forget the "Picture Perfect" August Special as well. You can read the details about that wonderful special here.  Also, this special is JUST FROM ME: Spend $100 on my website in August (before shipping and tax) and I will drop a BRAND, SPANKIN' NEW Close To My Heart Idea Book (approx. $10.95 value including shippping) in the mail to you for FREE!

Thanks again for EVERYTHING....for helping me earn a trip to Hawaii, for your loyal support, for your thoughts and prayers this week as I have been MIA trying to live through passing this stone, and for your patience with me when I go a week without posting artwork!  Aloha!
