Market Street 3x4 cards / My Mind's Eye

Happy Monday, friends!  I wanted to share my latest layout for My Mind's Eye.  It was up on the blog HERE on Friday.

I never know what to do with all of those 3x4 Project Life-type cards that have been coming in many collections these days.  I don't do PL or any type of pocket pages at all.  It's just not my thing.  I love seeing other designers' PL spreads...but I would just rather not get into a timely project like that.  I'd never be able to keep up.  Soooo....what to do with all of those cards?  I say pick your favorite ones and use them as little blocks of patterned paper!

I pulled out the 3x4 cards from the Market Street Nob Hill line and arranged them like I wanted.  I inked the edges and then adhered them down to black cardstock.  Once that was done, the rest was just embellishing, journaling and photo placement.  My embellishments are a mix of Ashbury Heights and Nob Hill.

I added lots of chipboard pieces around my photos as well as some black thread.  My journaling fit perfectly to the right of my photos.

I am still LOVING all of the shiny gold elements in these lines!  There is even some of it in the chipboard elements....yes!

I added a few tid bits from the Necessities Metallics this gold arrow and the rose colored shiny tape at the bottom.  I just can't get enough of the shine.  It's so eye-catching!

This is the second layout I've created using these type of really helps use them up while creating fun and colorful pages!  Embellishing each card is like a little layout in itself.  HERE is the other layout I created that is similar to this one.  I used other MME products for that one.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope this gives you some ideas of how to use up those cards :)
