Heidi Swapp Storyline + Jane Davenport Inkredible Ink

Hello, hello!

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I'm up on the Heidi Swapp blog today with a few Storyline layouts I created using the brand new Jane Davenport Inkredible Inks!

In an effort to keep things ultra-simple, I created the same layout twice...using just different colored ink and different Storyline Deck of Days kits...

For more photos and a closer look at how my pages came together, head on over to Heidi's blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Heidi Swapp | Summer Party

Can you even believe summer is almost here?

That means summertime parties are almost here, too!

And what better way to celebrate than with darling little diy party accessories?

I used all things Heidi Swapp to create this little summer party set-up...and I think it all turned out so cute!

I started with some patterned paper from Heidi's Hawthorne collection and a little mini beach umbrella cut-file I purchased in the Silhouette store.

I cut the umbrellas out with my Silhouette and assembled them with a tape runner.

I love how beachy and rustic-looking these are!

Then I attached them to some wood skewers with a little hot glue.

Next, I took the labels off of these water bottles and attached the mini beach umbrellas with some washi tape from Heidi's Fresh Start collection

Next, I used the Jumbo Kraft Letters & puffy "vibes" sticker (also from Heidi's Hawthorne collection) and my Minc machine to create these awesome picks!

Heidi's Letterboard is a MUST-HAVE for any party!

And the little washi pennants I created using Fresh Start & Hawthorne tapes & toothpicks are a great way to add color and texture.

Circles punched from more Hawthorne patterned paper and sewn together create a darling little banner for my bar cart, and Heidi's Lightbox is the perfect finishing touch for the bottom shelf!

The best thing about this party decor? 

With all of the paper, washi, Letterboard & Lightbox options available, you can create a totally custom party for any theme!

Thanks so much for taking a look!

Happy Mother's Day! | HS Lightboard

Happy Mother's Day!

I have a confession to make. 

I didn't buy my Mom a gift for Mother's Day.


I'm the worst.

BUT, I wanted to give her something a little special...so I quick set up this little Lightbox display for her. 

I used one of Heidi's Lightbox Accessory Kits - Beach - to add a background to my Mint Lightbox...and then I added the kit's enclosed letters to spell out my sentiment.

 I grabbed some 3D Minc flowers that I made earlier in the week (originally for a summertime banner, but they work so nicely here, too!) and used foam dots to add them to my Lightboxes.

Next, I added a little piece of washi tape from the Fresh Start collection to my Lightbox Stand.

And one more little flower completes the set-up!

I kind of love how this turned out. I really think the flowers dress up the lightboxes so nicely!

And I think my Mom will love it.

How are you celebrating your Mother's Day?

We're headed out to a local fried chicken restaurant with some friends and I CAN'T WAIT!

I sure hope you have a wonderful day!

Storyline meets Jane Davenport

Hey hey everyone!

Today I'm here with a new Storyline layout I've created using pieces of Jane Davenport's new collection at Michaels!

If you've followed my work for any amount of time, you know how much I love Heidi Swapp's Storyline collection.

Quick & easy story-focused documenting is my favorite. And Heidi's Storyline pieces are really just the perfect way to get the job done.

But sometimes I like to mix things up a bit.

Sometimes I like to challenge myself to use items I may not always be naturally drawn to in my scrapbooking.

That's where this page comes in.

Now, I'm definitely NOT a mixed media artist (that's also something you probably know if you've followed me for a while). BUT, I love Jane Davenport and her pens, inks & papers.

So, I decided to see what I could do to incorporate some of my favorite pieces of Jane's new collection into a Storyline layout.

How about a look at how my page came together?

I started my page using some of Jane's brand new Mermaid Markers.

If you've never used these beautiful markers, you're missing out.

They work sort of like a watercolor brush...with built-in color.

The colors are bright & bold & GORGEOUS, and there are a ton of different shades available.

To begin, I wrote the word "LOVE" in "Polar Lights" and highlighted it a bit using "Stormy Seas."

Then I added "BEACH" with a journaling marker and highlighted it with pale blue "Lagoon."

I love that little addition!

I added my photo and then tucked a small piece of one of Jane's new Collage Papers...just to include a bit more of that fantastic hot pink.

A few self-adhesive Confettissue pieces add some more color and bit more dimension to the page.

I used my "Lagoon" Mermaid Marker to add some blue scribbles (reminiscent of waves) to the bottom of my page, dropped a few splashes around the paper and then added a bit of journaling.

I really like that I was able to stay true to my style (simple and not too-overembellished), while still using some of my most-loved mixed media products.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope I've inspired you to maybe step outside your creative box and try something new today!
