Heidi Swapp Memory File Adventure Continues....

I am still working on the Heidi Swapp Memory File Adventure.  This is a continuation of the last section I posted... I AM, I CHOOSE, I DREAM, I LOVE and I HOPE .  This particular page will focus on I HOPE.  I made the photostack (on the bottom right) to journal my hopes.

This is where I will journal my hopes for the future, for my life, for my children.  I will probably add some photos as well in the photostack.

This is just a filler page.  I didn't want to put one of the title there since the peek-a-boo shows LOVE THIS.  

Just a close up view of some of the details.  I used a photo behind the framed photo to add some interest.    The frame is by Maggie Holmes, I just love her line mixed with the Heidi Swapp line.  You can buy Maggie Holmes from Whimsey Girl, Heidi Swapp is available at Scrapping Clearly and Whimsey Girl

Maggie Holmes Thank You Card

My awesome friend, Kathryn aka WhimseyGirl, is a retailer of Maggie Holmes products.  She recently sent me quite an assortment of her products to play with it, and let me just say.... SO PRETTY!  If you haven't had a chance to score this very soft, whimsical line, RUN over to Kathryn's blog and order now!  CHA's new releases are coming out in September, and it will be hard to find the current line.  Also, you can get a 12 x 12 paper pad from Michaels that perfectly matches all the super cute embellishments.    Keep watching for several more product samples, I have lots of ideas in mind!

Heidi Swapp Memory File Adventure . . . Still Going

 So the Memory File Adventure continues.  I apologize for all the layouts of "ME", but that's what the prompts are.  This section is "I AM, I DREAM, I HOPE"  I just completed "I AM". 

 I kept the front cover pretty simple.  I love the yellows in this collection! So bright and happy  

Inside is more of a Vintage Vibe.  I feel like it didn't quite go in the direction I planned.

I find it difficult to write about myself.  Do you?  Why is it so hard to say something nice about ourself?  It makes me feel very self conscience.

Next section is "I DREAM".  I will have to think about how I want to approach that one!

Sweet Dreams

This is another layout from my Scrap-in.  On this layout I used a little of Sugar Chic and some No Limits.  I snapped this cute photo of my son this weekend.  Katie just loves to have him home.

Simply Family

 I made this layout last night at Michaels Scrap-In.  Did you know on the first Saturday of every month from 3-9 Michaels has a Scrap-In?  You can go to Michaels and use their machines (Cricut, Spellbinder, Cuttlebug, Xyron) and all of their punches, stamps, etc. and just scrap for just $5.  I am technically the Scrapbook instructor at our Michaels, but I am no longer teaching classes.  Just hosting the Scrap-in.  I've met some very fun ladies and once a month we scrap together.

Anyway, I have been introducing the ladies to Heidi Swapp products!!  They love all of the ColorPop and ColorShine.  They had no idea what it was until they saw me spraying, wiping and suddenly, I had them all watching.  Needless to say, they all left the first night with some ColorMagic Butterflies and Colorshine.  Last night, they bought more ColorMagic (Hearts and Arrows), and then they noticed the paper pads.  Yes, you guessed it!  They all left with either Sugar Chic or No Limits paper pads as well.
I just love both collections of papers.  I am not really good at packing to crop on the go, but with the Sugar Chic Paper Pad and the No Limits pad, I am in pretty good shape no matter what I'm scrapping.  I also love that all of the embellishments are included in the pad.

Heidi Swapp - My Craft Channel Card

Do you watch Heidi Swapp's My Craft Channel shows every Wednesday?  I do!  This past Wednesday, she introduced this simple card using color magic paper and color shine with a doily.  I added some seam binding and changed the embellishments from hers but the concept is the same.  I used Dylusional spray ink for this yummy  electric green color.  The stamp is by Papertrey Ink.  Butterflies are by Heidi Swapp.

Thanks for looking

Another digital/hybrid card using Maggie Holmes digital kit

This is another card I made using the digital papers and elements available from Maggie Holmes digital kit.  I put this together very quickly after importing the elements into the Silhouette, printing then cutting.  It's a very happy & bright card.

Heidi Swapp Memory File Adventure - Still Going

 I am finished with this section with the exception of journaling.  I have two different large spaces left to add "my story". 
I filled the clear pockets with a mixture of photos, quotes and just a plain tag and some sequins.  The sequins are all pushed up to the side in the photo, but they are loose in the pocket and move freely.
 This is just a flip open flap and a little of this and that to add some interest.

As you can see, I have space left to journal on the inside of the flap and to the right of the photo.  I may add some more embellishments to this after I finish writing.  I also have a large space to journal in under the flap you saw in the prior post. 

On to the next section!
