There's just one more week in August to grab the special on Close To My Heart's "Picture My Life" scrapbooking program, so I thought I'd share a few pages I made for our 2014 Family Album. I've never scrapbooked this way before so decided, with all the time constraints I've got this year that this would be a great way to "keep up" with those key events you want to have a memory record of during a year. 

We have 13 different choices to cover any event, school, vacations, babies, boys or girls, or generic albums. Each set gives you 44 - 4"x6" cards (2 each of 22 designs), 78 - 3"x4" cards (3 each of 26 designs), 1 - 12"x12" Designed Cover page, and 10 - 12"x 12" Memory Protectors of various designs. (more below)

I decided to use the family oriented Avonlea set and began my album with the worst winter in Winnipeg Manitoba in 116 years:

Sorry about the flash - I couldn't get it turned off! These pages are the Design 4 pages (Z1951) with 4 pockets for 4"x 6" pictures or you can use one of the 4"x 6" cards, and 4 pockets for 3" x 4" pictures or cards. I discovered when I ran off my pictures that I don't take any vertical shots so will have to rectify that to give the album some variety!

Each set comes with a 12"x 12" designed cover page, as I mentioned, and this gives me space for a 5" x7" family picture I plan on matting and jazzing up the page with some embellishments.

So, what's the August Special? Buy any one of our 13 sets and for just $3.00 more, you can get an extra set of 10 pocket page Memory Protectors in 8 different choices:

Z1324 Design 1       6 vertical 4" x 6" pockets
  4113 Design 2       6 horizontal 4" x6" pockets
Z1950 Design 3       4 vertical 4"x 6" pockets + 4 horizontal 3"x4"                                    pockets
Z1951 Design 4        4 horizontal 4"x 6" pockets + 4 vertical                                             3"x4" pockets
Z1952 Design 5        3 vertical 6"x 4" pockets + 6 horizontal
                                3"x 4" pockets
  4110 Top Load       12" x 12" page
Z1968 Side Load      12" x 12" page
Z3026 Variety Pack  4 each of Designs 3, 4, and 5

So, for your second set of pocket pages for $3.00, you can order any of the above to mix and match the original set. The Z3026 Variety Pack is what comes with the Kit.
