Pineapple Crush | Heidi Swapp

Happy Friday!

Here we are at the end of yet another week...just a few days before the start of spring - yay!

Heidi Swapp has just released her newest collection, Pineapple Crush, and it will be shipping to online & independent retailers next week!

I'm over on Heidi's blog today with a look at the Clear Stamp set from the collection...

Head on over there to see more photos & to read about how my layout came together...

Have a great weekend!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I'm not Irish.

Except on St. Patrick's Day...because, really...aren't we all a wee bit Irish on that day?

To decorate for this lovely, almost-spring holiday, I decided to add a little fun to my kitchen.

I found a quote that made me laugh, and used a variety of Heidi Swapp Letterboard typefaces & letter sizes on my extra large (15"x23") Letterboard.

Then I found a few fun slides for my Lightbox to add some more green (my FAVORITE color right now!) to my kitchen decor.

I used a sewing pin, tucked through a paper shamrock and into the Letterboard to add a little more color and a bit more decoration.

I'll bet you're wondering if I'm really planning on eating this concoction for breakfast? 

Heck to the no way.


Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here's to malarkey & shenanigans for everyone!

New Heidi Swapp Storyline!

A new Heidi Swapp Storyline Collection is now arriving in Michaels stores and all I can say is WOOO HOOO!

You memory-keepers out there may already be familiar with Heidi's Storyline Collection

But for those of you who aren't, let me fill you in.

Storyline is a collection of albums (that include pre-designed background pages) & accessories designed to make scrapbooking quick & easy.

Heidi wanted to get back to the heart of scrapbooking - the storytelling - and these products make that SO EASY!

New products are arriving in Michaels stores (including some of the most beautiful albums you've ever seen), AND Heidi's team is sharing a TON of Storyline inspiration to get you motivated to get those stories told!

Here's a layout I created with the new collection...

...checkout that GORGEOUS new album!

And here's the sketch to go along with it...perfect for either an 8.5"x11" layout (like mine!) or a 12"x12" page!

**Check out my teammates' blogs below to grab even more Storyline sketches**

This layout took me all of 20 minutes to create...start to finish! And a good majority of that was tracing around & coloring in my little circles!

I started by choosing my photo & adding it to my page. Then I grabbed a few stickers and popped them on. Next, I added in the date the photo was taken and the WHO, WHAT & WHERE. Finally, I doodled in a few designs and this layout was done!

Get those facts down, embellish a little (or a lot!), and that's it!

No pressure. No crazy design skills needed...

...just a photo & a pen, aaaand maybe a few stickers...

Check out all of Michaels Storyline products HERE...

And have fun creating!

DIY your own planner dashboard! | Heidi Swapp

Every year, around this time, my dad used to say, "Well, we're finally on the right side of winter."

I always loved that expression...and I'm in full agreement! The end of winter is definitely the "right side" as far as I'm concerned.

As we move closer & closer to spring, I get more and more excited about all that lies ahead.

Warmer weather, of course, but also longer days, the sounds of the kids playing outside, and weekends spent on the patio with friends & family.

I've created this planner dashboard as a way to dress up my Memory Planner in anticipation of spring, and as a reminder that now really is the perfect time for a new beginning...

Take a look at the following little video to see just how I created my newest planner accessory...

Here's all you'll need to create your own!

  • The dashboard .pdfs below (download one of these, or create your own!) - these are available in both Classic & Personal Memory Planner sizes. If you're printer can't print custom-sized paper (i.e. 6x8 or 4x7.25), download & print the 8.5x11 option and trim around the outline provided. If your printer CAN print custom-sized sheets, feel free to download the .pdfs without the 8.5x11 tag...these options are pre-sized to fit directly into your planner.
  • Laser Printer - to print a "Minc-able" image. See Heidi's favorite HERE.
  • A Heidi Swapp Minc Foil Applicator
  • Minc Reactive Foil
  • Stickers/washi tape/other embellishments. Mine are from the new Heidi Swapp Fresh Start collection
  •  Laminating pouches
  • Hole punch/Planner Punch Board/binding machine

And here are the design .pdfs...

Don't have a Minc, but still want to create the dashboard?

No worries! Download the design, print it out & dress it up however you wish!

I'd LOVE to see what you create with this design! Upload your photos to Facebook or Instagram and tag me (@maggiemassey) so I can oooh & aaah and your beautiful work!

Thanks so much for taking a look!
