The Memory Planner...

I am so over the moon excited to finally share the new Heidi Swapp Memory planner being revealed today. This collection will only be available in Michaels and excitingly soon in Australia.... Details coming soon  !

It's my new way of documenting the everyday happenings of my family.  I wanted to decorate the cover a little differently so I created a She Art collage piece on the front of the planner. I modge podged some pattern paper on the front of the album to create a base. I then  misted a Color Magic butterfly to form the wings and then built up my 'girl' with pattern paper from the collection.
I then used the mini stamps and background stamps to create texture and interest.


Isn't that crown stamp so fun! You can see I added some glitter to the butterfly for a bit of sparkle.


Heidi has designed some fabulous 3 in one masks and stencils , I have used one of them with some texture paste to create some raised elements on my cover.


Upon opening,  each month has 3 parts that can be used for documentation.

Firstly on the left, there is a page to write down your thoughts for the month. There is room to add extra photos if you want.



Next there is a pocket page to hold your photos and memorabilia.


Finally there is a calendar page that you can embellish as you like with the stamps, stickers and extra embellishments  in the collection. I completed my calendar up until the 6th of January when I left for the US and CHA. I have taken the planner with me and each night I can note down the day's highlights and then add my photos when I return home.


I am so excited to continue with this monthly project and I plan to share more of each month as I go.
