Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic Layout - #Scrapmyoutfit

The other day I challenged Instagrammer followers and a few of my friends to post a layout inspired by what they were wearing that very moment.  I was wearing a black suit with a black and white stripped shirt and a silver/red necklace.  This is the layout I came up with.  It's fun to just have a direction to start and see where you end up.  In my mind I was going to do a very black/white/red layout, but once I started creating this is where I ened up.

 I used the Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic paper pad, buzzwords and color magic hearts/arrows, all of which are available at Michaels right now. 

I also used Pink Paislee's digital cutting file for the cute circle/heart cut piece.  I cut it on the Silhouette.

Thanks for looking.  If you'd like to try to scrap your outfit, I'd love if you would post it on Instagram hash tag #scrapmyoutfit.  I will try and do this again, since it was a holiday weekend, a lot of people didn't have time to play.

Heidi Swapp What "Wood" you do - Take Two

 This is another album I made to add to the #HSWOODALBUM contest on Instagram.  If you haven't entered you have until March 25th (See details on previous post).   For this album I again used the versamark ink for the butterfly stamp, but I also used it with a stencil to make the pattern on the front.  I used white embossing powder over the versamark then heat set it.  Once the embossed areas had cooled, I misted the entire cover with ColorShine in Mustard.
I covered the top right corner with a small paper plate and then misted with Georgia Peach around the edges.   I finished it off with seam binding with I also misted with the Mustard and Georgia Peach and a few pieces of bling.  I also used Heidi's Buzzwords for the "true".

Heidi Swapp What "Wood" You do Wood Album

 Have you heard?  Heidi Swapp is having a random drawing to win ALL of the bottles of Color Shine?  All you have to do to win is pick up one of her wood albums at Michaels and get to work making it your own, post pictures on Instagram of your process and/or finished project and tag it with #hswood album and add a shout out to Heidi by adding @hkswapp.  That's it!  That's all you have to do to be entered to win.

For my album I tried heat embossing the heart album.  I used Versaark ink, script stamp and white embossing powder.  Once I heat set the embossing powder I misted the cover with Primrose.

 I finished the album off with some of Heidi's buzzwords and mistable hearts.  The black and white glitter paper is from her Sugar Chic paper pad.  All items available at Michaels.

Heidi Swapp Color Shine & Sugar Chic Mini Album

I made this album to put my spring flower pictures in this year.  It's so bright and cherry.

 I used the Heidi Swapp Color Magic Papers and Color Shine spray in Mustard for the outside covers.  The inside pages are all from the new Sugar Chic Paper Pad now available at Michaels
 For the inside pages I cut a sheet of 12 x 12 in half to 12 x 6, then folded it in half, rounded the corners and punched with the cinch.

The shorter pages are from the tag page included in the paper stack.  This album went together in minutes and I love how everything coordinates in Heidi's line.  So easy!

 Now, about that awesome binding wire?  I had an idea the other night.... spray paint!!  Yep, that's all I did and it worked!  I was so excited!!!  Check out these cutie patooties!

Can you imagine how cute these would be on a fun album?  I am so flipping excited!!!!
