Thank you so much for joining us in our 2nd Blog Share! You should have made your way from Jody’s blog. If this is your first stop please head on over to GIA at The Painted Crane This month we are featuring products from Heidi Swapps Mixed Company and Color Magic lines! I can not get enough of this Color Magic paper!! It is so much fun to work with the Color Magic and Heidi Swapps Color Shine. The Color Shine comes in so many colors there are endless possibilities with this stuff!! If you have not yet got your hands on some Color Shine and Color Magic I highly suggest putting this at the top of your wish lists friends!! The first project I want to share with you is actually the last project I completed and I think it is one of my favorites because it was super easy, fun and quick! I took one 12×12 piece of Color Magic added three different colors of Color Shine (Sweet Cherry Mint Green and Mustard) to it and once it was dry I cut it down to 6 fronts measuring 5 1/4×4 I then took some of my favorite Heidi Swapp stickers and added simple sentiments to the card fronts! I then adhered 3 of these to black card bases to create simple but O so super cute cards!
I also now have three card fronts ready to go whenever needed! Next up I have a very special layout I created using one of the photos taken while attending one of Heidi’s classes at Hannah’s Home Accents! What an amazing experience meeting HEIDI SWAPP! She truly is the sweetest! I knew I had to scrap this photo and this layout will be going in frame and hung up in my craft space!
My last two projects are mini albums of coarse! I am a mini album lover and I just can not get enough of them! I love that my babies are going to have boxes filled with all these albums of documented memories! All the big and little moments in life, hand written journaling, photos, receipts, letters, all kinds of great stuff for them to enjoy and to pass on to their kids! My first album is of our sweet baby Eli James! I used the Mixed Company Fotostack to create my album adding an extra flap to the cover so I could journal on the other side. I added Instagrams of Eli that I have taken this year with little bits and prices of ephemera here and there and even pulled out some of my Heidi Swapp stickers I had in my stash. I love how her lines can easily be mixed and matched so well! I also used my Epiphany Crafts tool to help hold my ribbon closure and the royal blue sequins on the cover are from JODY at SpiegelMom Scraps.
Now let me just share with you why I created this last project! You all know those plastic photo sleeves that come in your wallet? Well I am always using them for the kids school pictures or sports photos because we all know we end up with a ton of wallet sized photos! I wanted something pretty to have in my purse to hold my kids photos! So when someone asked to see photos of my kids I can show them the photos in something nice and pretty and not just a flimsy plastic photo sleeve in my wallet! Take a look at what I created!
How stinkin cute is this little mini photo album!? There is even room for three more photos once the last page is turned! The base of this album is made using one piece of 12×12 cardstock and is super simple to create! Thank you all so much for stopping today and being a part of our 2nd Blog Share!
