“Chalk It Up” Mini Book

Convention Chalk it up 9a.JPG

One of my favorite activities at the Close To My Heart annual convention is the “creative session,” where consultants get to use brand new, not yet released products to create some really nice projects! Well this year was no exception. One of the products we were able to use this year was the “Chalk It Up” Picture My Life (PML) Scrapbooking Program.

Since the CTMH August promotion is centered around PML, I have shared a few posts on this program recently. Yesterday, I showed how this scrapbooking program can be used for more than just scrapbooking. Take today’s project… a mini book. Although the cover of this book was an exclusive for convention attendees, the other pages are simply the larger cards from the PML program. Take a look at the mini book. Can’t you just imagine a darling little book to showcase your child’s back to school photos? Or perhaps a special school event?

The front cover is shown above. Here is a look inside pages 2 and 3…

Some of these pages were stamped with images from the new “Here We Go” stamp set, which is a travel-focused set. Those adorable little stickers found throughout the pages are from the Chalk It Up Assortment of **puffy** stickers! Black and white cardstock was used to create photo and/or journaling mats. I punched 3 holes in each page and bound with matching colors of baker’s twine.
