Picture My Life ~ Chalk It Up ~ Pocket Scrapbooking Week Two

Good morning!

So nice to be sharing more exciting Picture My Life Pocket Scrapbooking with you today featuring the Close To MY Heart Chalk It Up Program.

I have more Layouts today.  First up is an embellished Layout I made using a Design 4 Page Protector that comes in the kit. Everything you see used here is from the kit. I have not added any other embellishments.

Easy Steps to Embellish

  1.  Add a small photo to the 4x6 Card.
  2.  Cut the words "One Smart Cookie" and the cookie out of a 3x4 Journalling card and adhere with 3D tape.  
  3. Draw a smiley face onto the base card with black pen.

Easy Steps to Embellish

  1.  Add a small photo to the 4x6 Card.
  2.  Cut a star banner out of a 3x4 Journalling card and adhere to bottom of card.  
  3. Punch a star out of 3x4 card and outline with black pen.  Adhere with 3D tape.
  4. Cut quote out of 3x4 card and adhere with 3D tape.

For my second Layout I used only 4x6 cards from the Kit to make a Traditional Scrapbook Layout.  The only thing I added was a plain white 12x12 sheet of card and some Black card for layering and of course my photo and black pen.

I created a mat for my Photo to sit on by cutting strips from the 4x6 cards that came in the kit.  I layered them onto black card.

Then I added numbers and letters cut from 4x6 cards to spell the work Kindergarten and the year 2010.
You can see the same letters in the strips behind the Photograph.  I simply outlined them in black pen to help define them a bit more.  The numbers already had a black edge so I left them as they were.
I positioned them kind of higgledy-piggledy so it creates a "school" sort of look, where perhaps a child has written it by themselves.

Lastly I copied some doodling designs from the cards directly onto the base of my Layout in the corners with Black Pen.  I was tempted to do more, a few more swirly strands stretching out more down the sides of the paper.  I will see how it sits with me and can always add more later on if I feel like it.

You can see from these two Layouts how the Chalk It Up Scrapbooking Program really does provide everything you need to make your own School Album.  This is the contents of the kit:
