Make It Crafty Seasonal Blog Hop ~ January

Welcome to the •MAKE•IT•Crafty• Seasonal Blog Hop!

This month we will be featuring Valentine, January Stamp of the Month or National Scrapbooking Month

 If you’ve arrive from Lisa's Blog, you are on the right path!

 The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here

This month we have a number of Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using various CTMH products to help you get in a Loving mood for Valentines Day, National Scrapbooking month or sharing the monthly stamp set... .

I have chosen to use the National Scrapbooking ~ Live Your Day ~ Picture My Life cards to prep my Everyday Life planner ~ 

I have used the cards to create Pockets for each month to hold momentos, a list of Birthdays for that month & create a little journaling about special moments... 

I have also created a couple flip up cards using washi tape so that I can attach a picture or write a little note that is hidden away.

Each Month there is a new inspiration pocket for me to view & start each month off in a positive mind set...

I Love how the PML cards coordinate with the Planner pages ~ 
For a horizontal pocket,  use Bonding Memory glue stick applied to 3 edges to secure the pocket 
(be sure to let dry before adding additional cards to the pocket)



For a Vertical pocket apply glue to one side & the bottom


Then tuck cards into the pockets created...


Journalling in your planner is a great way to keep track of all the special events happening in your life!





I will be adding additional My Crush pages throughout the year ~ showcasing color coordinating patterned paper ~ 
As well I will be adding Memory protectors made for the everyday life album for special occasions.

This was a straight forward project ~ the product used were:
Everyday Life Album
Everyday Life Planner Pages
National Scrapbooking ~ Live Your Day ~ PML cards
Washi tape from my stash
Bonding Memories Glue Stick
PML cards ~ Beautiful You
