Christmas with my Lightboxes

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, my favourite time of the year. I am slowly starting to fill my home with little pieces of Christmas decor before the full day of decorating comes on December the 1st.
Living in Australia and having Christmas fall in Summer I love decorating with bright pops of colour.  My first stop was  a couple of my  Heidi Swapp Lightboxes.

I added two of them onto a shelf I have at home, the original plus the shelf lightbox. I then added a couple of my bright funky coloured mini trees and felt ball banner from stash to complete the vignette.

For the shelf lightbox I used one of the non Christmas slides as my background, I love the pop of pink and yellow. I then slid in the celebrate slide and used two other fonts (the black and pink)to complete my quote!

I grabbed the Bright slide then again the same fonts as before to tie it all together for my regular lightbox. I then grabbed two icon slides from the Holidays pack an My lightbox was complete.

You can find all these goodies, the Lightboxes  , letters, icons and slides at your local Joann store!

October in My Memory Planner

My Heidi Swapp Time Flies Memory Planner is one of my most favourite memory keeping concepts that helps me record my family's stories. Today I am sharing my October pages with you.

Heidi Swapp Time Flies Memory Planner

The first page, the prompt page celebrates my son's birthday this month. I layered clear embellishments and stickers from the Memory Planner collection for texture and depth.

Photos in the pocket page simply embellished and journaling added using my We R Memory Keepers   Typecast Typewriter.

I added a second photo onto this pocket page by clipping it to the edge of my page.

I designed  this printable and then printed it onto vellum and then used my Minc and laminating pouches to create a more sturdier printable and then added it into my planner.

October was busy so I used one of the extra pockets from the Memory Planner collection to add in some more photos.

I used a hole punch and then snipped into each hole from the edge to place it into the spirals of my planner.

Fun Halloween photos.

The calendar page is a catch all for small and big moments. I adorned my page with stickers and small embellishments from the Memory Planner collection and that Boo sticker from the Storyline collection.

Another month down, another month's memories recorded forever!

Boo- celebrate halloween with Heidi Swapp Storyline

Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year. A few weeks ago I had a little photo shoot with some Halloween Marquee masks. I wanted to record this memory as soon as possible so I grabbed some of my Heidi Swapp Deck Of Days cards from the Storyline collection, a fun cut file from the Silhouette store and got to work.

Once I cut out the Frankenstein shape from my cardstock I got to work creating a patchwork with the Deck of Days cards. Once I adhered the cards  down to a second piece of cardstock  I stitched around the outline with my sewing machine for added texture.

I then used pop dots to add in the facial features to my Frankenstein. I love the depth and shadow this creates on my layout.

This is definitely my most favourite way to use the Deck Of Days cards, to me the possibilities are endless.

The new look lightbox comes in either a soft pink or soft mint edge! How cool is that!

Choose Happy Unicorn layout

It is not often I get to be all girly with my scrapbooking so when I had the chance to create a layout about a fun dress up day at work with the theme of enchanted forests I couldn't wait to get started. 
I decided to create my layout combing the yummy Maggie Holmes Carousel  collection from
Crate Paper and some of the delish  InstaxVintage filler cards from Heidi Swapp.
I added in that cute cut file I found in the Silhouette online store and my layout came together.

I loved layering some of the Carousel embellishments over the Instax cards for a cohesive feel to my layout.

The soft pretty colours in the papers and embellishments complement my photos Perfectly!
Till next time...
