I am not usually a scrapbooker that uses PML (also known as Project Life in other circles) cards in my artwork. I had a change of heart towards them recently, and the layout above is proof of that.
Believe it or not, I used two PML cards on this layout. One is a 3×4 card, and the other was a 4×6 inch card. The floral portion of the card inspired me. I thought it would look stunning on its own, so I fussy cut it out and layered it over the 3×4 PML card with some pop dots.
I think the colour combination is spot on- the colours of the flowers pop right off that dark (pewter, is it??) background. Pairing that with the bashful patterned paper from the coordinating paper packet (Gimme Some Sugar), and it’s a delightful match made in heaven.
Dark and light is perfectly balanced in this layout, too. And, it all stemmed from that 4×6 inch PML card! Unfortunately, Gimme Some Sugar has retired. But, did you know that each of our paper packets always includes two sheets of journaling cards?
They do! You don’t need to search my website for a particular PML card set, just search up your favourite current collection and treat yourself to the paper packet! They’re already included in a cut apart sheet!
Unless you strictly scrapbook with PML. Then by all means, purchase the coordinating, stand alone PML cards! It’s a win-win scenario for all paper crafters!
So, don’t fret. I will strive to create using PML cards more often in the future. This was a fun exercise in stretching my creative skills. It’s also a great way to inspire participation in my upcoming Try it Out Tuesday segment that is coming soon.
Try it Out Tuesday? Think Technique Tuesday, but with a TEDS CTMH spin on it. It is geared specifically to those that are new to scrapbooking and are motivated to learn more. I’ll share scrapbooking basics, define foreign paper crafting terms, tackle a variety of stamping and paper crafting techniques and share tips, tricks and more! I’ve created a group that’s linked to my FB VIP group page just for this occasion! I just need to make one vital purchase, and this segment will get off the ground! Will you join me? Message me below, and I’ll get you added to the group ASAP!
