Today I am going to do something different, Picture my Life pages that I have made from Dr Phil Scraps.  This is the “Later Skater” set, my boy is all boy and this fits him perfectlyPicturemyLife2

Her is the start page, I was toying with the idea of printing a black and white photo blending it on the top of when he was little.  He has loved sports for so long, I think he had the names and the stats down for the Seahawks by the time he was 4.  He loves baseball, football, basketball anything to do with sports he lives and breathes it.


Here is the back side of the opening page, he doesn’t skate board so I will be covering that up with a photo but I will keep the rest!   I love the little interviews the cards provide.


So now he is all grown up!  This is his best game ever.   My first time filling the pages, I printed my photos to small but I know better now!  He has 7 albums of him to himself, then when my daughter came along I slowed down on his albums and tried to give my daughter some of what he has but I haven’t really gotten close to what he went through having a mom as a budding photographer all his life.  He says he is retired, lol.

Later Skater is a great set, when you buy a set of “Picture My Life” themed cards, it comes with page protectors too.  Close to my heart has the best page protectors around in my opinion.  My next post will have the girly version “Chantilly”  I love love love.  As the term is coming to an end you will see these Picture My Life, pocket style scrapping.  Very excited to show of these cool moments even if it’s an every day moment!

Happy Crafting!



Hi this is Lissa for Dr Phil Scraps to show you a little more of the pocket style cards from Close to my Heart’s, “Picture my Life” Line.  Are you not a big fan on the restricted shooting and layouts?  Well, I am lucky that I love it all because I have so much to do and some already printed but printed in 3×5 to fit the 12×12 pages better since I am a zoom shooter!  That isn’t going to stop me though!  I love these cards as fillers.  I basically wanted to show you the cards, not the fancy layout with all the embellishments because those are endless with the Close to my Hearts coordinating line for this set to many other possibilities.  The idea here is utilizing the cards for any kind of layout, soon to dress it up nice and girly!



I hope this was helpful, you do get plenty of pocket pages with your order the pack but as always you can use them in many ways!

I hope this has got your thinking cap on with new ideas!

See you next Tuesday with my very last post for Dr Phil Scraps, it has been a great experience!



Hi this is Lissa here for Dr Phil Scraps to show you another layout for the Close to My Heart’s line of “Picture My Life” cards for pocket scrapping. I love this set “Chantilly” all girl!  So there she is my baby girl.  Still dedicating myself to making her album page by page!





She doesn’t know how lucky she is to have such wonderful baby pictures of her that most don’t!  It is such a joy to go through the years!

Here is a sneak preview more of what is in the set.



Cute for any age!

I hope you have enjoyed this post!  You can find the set HERE

Studio J Saturday – Yes you can do pocket pages digital!

Hi this is Lissa here again from Dr Phil Scraps to show you my last inspirational layout for Close to my Heart’s Studio J online free software.

Are you more of a pocket scrapper and ever wondered how to do it digital?  Less mess, no cards to have to deal with, and not have to worry about what size your photos will be or orientation they have to be?  If so, in the no limit layout you can do that too!  You have the option to print multiple sized photos in the photo choices  as shown here..


or you can go with no limits


and make the sized YOU want with the stitches on your layout!  On this post I decided to make my daughter some room decor!


Of all posts, I am so excited to show you this since it was all done in Studio J software using the stitches for the lines and all their embellishments and fonts, my 7 year old just LOVES IT!  Here… why don’t I show you a close up!


It is so easy to do just by grabbing the stitches and placing them where you want, I even used some on the border as well!  If you are just now seeing these inspirational digital layouts and wonder where you have been all this time you can get caught up with some tutorials HERE!

Here is also some of Dr Phil’s Promotions for the month!  So I hope I have inspired you to scrap!


Happy Scrappin!SiggyforblogFinal
