For today’s blog hop, I decided to show you how easy it is to use Picture My Life cards to make cards. There is a sheet of these Picture My Life cards included in each paper packet. I made a card from each set, except I didn’t have Central Park so I used the Picture My Life Birthday Cheer cards instead. I always seem to have some of these leftover when I am finished with the paper so this is a great way to make use out of them.
