Three Amigos Blog Hop July

Welcome back to the Three Amigos CTMH Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. Each month we are featuring a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month's challenge was to use the Picture My Life cards in a different way other than with the kit for scrapbooking.  I've had the idea for a while to make luggage tags for my suitcase with some pretty papers and my laminator that I bought two years ago... three... maybe four... and hadn't used yet.  Through some trial and error these are what I came up with.  I discovered that the Picture My Life cards were perfect for this because they were flat and easy to practice on.  Some of them have a great spot on the back for adding an address either handwritten or printed from the computer.  What fun it was to make these and last month before my nieces and nephew left for New York for a month we all sat down and made some luggage tags.  I wish I had taken pictures of theirs, but I actually copied Isabelle's (2nd from the left) and Emily decided to use a Picture My Life card because it was so cute and easy!  Ethan, 13, opted for a hockey net, stick and puck we cut out of another Cricut!  But HE did it!  And he had fun... and then he made his mom one.

Thanks for stopping by!  Now hop on over to Donna's Diary of a Scrapbook Addict blog to see what she did!
