Celebrating love with my Heidi Swapp Blush Memory Dex Spinner

Celebrating love today with my Heidi Swapp Blush Memory Dex Spinner.
I love that its like a small canvas to be creative with. Today I want to share 3 new Memory Dex cards I have made to celebrate the season of love.

I started with the February card  and ran it through my typewriter to add my journaling. 
Next I  added some of the Storyline Chapters Sheer stickers for the word LOVE. 

To complete I layered on some of the Storyline Chapters floral stickers and ephemera pieces. I love how sweet it looks.

Next I took one  of the Storyline Chapters pattern paper pads and found this glorious floral paper. I used my die cutting machine and Memory Dex dies to cut out the card.
I trimmed down a piece of white card and typed out my love quote.

I then stitched on that butterfly sticker from the Storyline Chapters collection and layered over a couple of stickers to complete. Simple and sweet.

For my final card I used a 4x6 photo of my husband and I. Again I used the Memory Dex die to cut out the card. I simply layered over some of the sheer Storyline Chapters stickers and that clear butterfly sticker. So simple but so unique.

Old school Memory Dex cards

I am loving my Heidi Swapp Blush Memory Dex lately. A place to play and create on a smaller canvas. I love teaming my Blush Memory Dex up with the Heidi Swapp Old School collection. The colours and patterns just make me happy.
I decided to make myself a few cards to celebrate 2021. Let me share them with you now.

I began with that fun striped pattern paper and used my Memory Dex die to cut out the card. I then added a fav photo that I took on NYE with my husband to the card. I embellished simply with stickers from the Old School collection to complete my card.

I began my next card with that beautiful floral pattern paper and again used the Memory Dex die to cut out the card. I used a large circle punch to punch that pink circle then layered over pieces from the Old School Ephemera pack. I added some of the Old School thickers to complete my card.

For my final card I again cut out the pattern paper from the Old School collection with the Memory Dex die. I then used the stamps from the Old School collection to stamp out that quote using some soft pink ink. I finished off by adding some Old school ephemera  and some splashes of pink Color Shine.
I am looking forward to creating monthly Memory Dex cards this year, a way to add a touch of creativity to my home decor.

Art Walk meets Florence

I have been itching to get back to scrapbooking my European vacation. With all the festivities of Christmas I neglected my travel album but I am back to share a couple of pages using the Heidi Swapp Art Walk collection. 

Today I am sharing two pages from our visit to Florence. The Heidi Swapp Art Walk collection was the perfect choice for my photos. I started with a pocket page on the left. I filled it with photos and then trimmed 3x4 pieces of pattern paper from the 6x8 Art Walk paper pad.

I then added stickers- including the definition and alpha stickers onto my photos and 3x4 cards to embellish.

For my title I added the Art Walk thickers directly onto my enlarged photo.

On the reverse page, again I added the Art Walk thickers directly onto the enlarged photo, and added in more photos and 3x4 cards into the pocket page.

Once again I added stickers from the Art Walk collection to my photos and trimmed pattern paper. 
This collection lends itself beautifully to the vintage vibe of my photos. I cannot wait to scrapbook more of our European vacation using this stunning collection. You can find the Art Walk collection at your local JoAnn store.
