Picturesque + Minc™ Mini...


By now you've seen (or at least seen online) the brand new Heidi Swapp Project Life® collection at Michaels Stores, right? Well today I'm going to share a PL spread I created in no time at all* using some pieces from the new collection as well as my new favorite tool - the Minc™ Mini.

*truly...like, no time at all...maybe 1 hour start to finish...maybe.


When I set out to create a PL spread (or any layout for that matter), I start by choosing my photo(s). Next I gather the paper/cards I want to use (for this spread I used cards from the brand new Heidi Swapp Project Life® Picturesque Edition). After that I will lay my photos/cards out on top of the pockets and I'll just move them around until I like the way they look. And finally I'll add my embellishments.


I LOVE adding little clusters of embellishments in (and on top of!) my pockets. When the pieces I want to use are too large to fit inside, I just adhere them to the outside - like I did with this banner...easy peasy! A few puffy stars help to add dimension to the spread...


Here I added just a few little Minc™ chipboard pieces and a transparent sticker from Heidi's new Project Life® collection.


The new Project Life® Frames are all 4x4 ... I just cut mine down to 3x4 and added it to a pocket to add some color...


The little pops of silver throughout the spread really stand out...


Here's a little close-up on what I did with that "AWESOME" tag. I wanted to include both of these photos in my spread, but didn't want to use to pockets to do it. So I simply stapled the label to the back photo and tucked both photos in the pocket...


I can't say it enough...I just love the ease and simplicity that comes along with creating Project Life®/pocket-scrap pages. They are seriously so quick and FUN! And it's the perfect way to get a lot of photos into one page...so awesome...

  2. Cool! Do you use a special adhesive or a regular craft adhesive (like Tom bow) to secure embellishments to the outside pocket plastic? Are they fairly secure? I've been hesitant to try this as I'm worried they will fall off over time / when turning the pages.
