My Mind's Eye / Lost & Found Record It!

Happy Monday, friends!  I'm up on the My Mind's Eye blog today with a layout featuring the new Lost and Found collections.  I wanted to showcase how you can use the Project Life cards on a layout.  I don't do PL, and I probably won't.  It's just too much and too overwhelming for me.  But I still love the cards, and here is just one way I used them on a good ol' fashioned layout :)

Regardless if you do PL or not, these adorable Record It! cards are definitely usable on your layouts.  I love using them for embellishments, journaling, fussy cutting…you name it.  They are very versatile and can be used in a lot of different ways.

I decided to scrap a photo of my husband and me dressed up for a nice date night at a fundraiser event for our daughters’ school.  I really liked the different shades of pink and red in the Heirloom collection, so I centered everything around that.  I dug into my MME stash and pulled some papers from the Find Your Wings and Fly collection to mix in.  I used NINE different Record It Cards on this layout.  See if you can spot them all!

I used one of the cards for a checklist, and I layered another behind it.  I cut the “today” banner piece from one, and I tore the hearts from another one.  To me, they’re just like mini pieces of patterned paper.

I fussy cut more words from more cards, and I used one of the 4x6 behind my photo.  They’re also great for layering.

Here’s another angle of the layers.  There are probably pieces included that you don’t think you’ll use…they’re great for building dimension and layers behind your photos or embellishments.

Here you can see closely two of the cards.  I just love shuffling through them all and pulling out the ones that go with my project!  I love the pops of pattern and color they add.

I hope this inspires you to give the Record It cards a chance…especially if you don’t do Project Life, like me.  I had lots of fun making this page, and it was surprisingly easy to put together because of the adorable cards.  You don’t have to do a lot of cutting or trimming.  They’re already the perfect size!

Thanks for stopping by today!
