Welcome to my scraproom

Welcome to a new year! 
Welcome to my scrap room!
Welcome to a new year of Memory Keeping! 
I have been doing a little clean and purge of my scrap room and I wanted to share where I would be doing my crafting this year! I am excited for a new year of possibilities!

Here is the view as you step into my craft room from the door. You can see several Ikea tables, shelving and drawer units.

Next to the door I have these set of drawers which hold all my pattern papers, Heidi Swapp Minc foils and blush Minc. 

On top I have my  Heidi Swapp Memory Planner open ready to document. I leave it open so I can work on it any time I am free. 

I share a desk with my husband. We put two Ikea desks together and he sits opposite to me. You can see his computer on the right. Here is where I keep all my adhesive, pens, staples and bits and pieces that I use all the time.

A side view of my desk and shelving hanging on the wall.

Another set of Ikea shelving. This holds my computer, sewing machine and extra bits and pieces in the boxes. Extra adhesive, stamps, punches, washi etc.

This larger Ikea shelf holds all my current Heidi Swapp paper collections as well as my We R Memory Keepers tools. 

I love my Heidi Swapp Lightbox on the shelf here!

I keep all my stickers and ephemera from collections in little glass bowls. Adds such a decorative element to my room.

I cannot wait to be back in my Scraproom and continue my Memory keeping for 2021.

Heidi Swapp Memory Planner

As I sat and worked on my Heidi Swapp Memory Planner today I looked back at the beginning of my planner, and marvelled at everything that has happened this year....wow what a year 2020 has been. I am so thankful that I have recorded it all in my Memory Planner. With only days to the new year I am sharing a couple of my final pages.

One of my favorite way to celebrate memories is large photos. Here I printed off my photo 4x6 and adhered it on an angle to my page.

I then layered over stickers from the Color Fresh collection in and around my photos.

Another week and another full size photo. You can see I used some of the Color Fresh washi to add some color to my photos.

I love using the Color Fresh stickers over the top of my photos. Adds texture without bulk!

As the year is coming to a close I love looking at holding my full planner. Weeks and weeks of stories and memories. I will be forever grateful for a place to hold them all!

Gold Star Minc foil meets my December Album!

I am slowly working away on my December album. 
One of my favourite ways to add shimmer and shine to my album is to create my own prinatbles and then print them off on to a transparency and then run them through my Heidi Swapp Minc machine with my favourite foil colours!

As you can see for this clear page, I used the Heidi Swapp Gold Star foil. I love the way it reflects in the light.

The different shades of stars in the Minc Foil add to the glitter and shine to my page.

I love that the clear transparency combined with the Gold Minc foil adds such a rich feel to my page.
Don't forget you  can find the Minc and Minc foils at JoAnn stores!
It is such an easy way to create a special page in your Memory Keeping!
