Foiled QR codes!

One of my most favourite techniques I like to use in my memory keeping is to use QR codes. These link back to videos I have uploaded to my personal YouTube account. These videos are usually ones I have taken on my iPhone of my family. I wanted to take it to the next level and so I decided  to use my 
Heidi Swapp Minc to foil my QR codes!

I began by using my QR reader app to make the code. I then sent the code to my computer and printed it off onto some white paper using my laser printer. I then chose some coloured Minc foils that coordinated with my photos - red and gold.

I layered some of the foil over my printed QR codes and ran them through my Minc Machine! I adhered them straight onto my photo for a fun look. I love the way it looks.

For my other photos and pockets I used some of the Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters papers and ephemera to embellish.

On this enlarged photo I added some of the Art Walk definition stickers for the easiest embellishment ever!
Working on my Project Life and adding fun pops of Minc foil is a cool way to ad colour and pizazz to your project!

Art Walk meets the Amalfi Coast

It is coming up to almost 2 years since my family and I took our European vacation. I am continuing to love working on my travel album and I have loved using the Heidi Swapp Art Walk collection for many of my spreads,  today I want to share my newest. travel layout. 

Today's spread tells the story of our visit to the beautiful Amalfi coast. I combined an enlarged photo with a pocket page and used lots of goodness from the Art Walk collection to complete my spread.

I trimmed pattern papers from the 6x8 Art Walk paper pad to 3x4 and slipped them into the pockets. On one of them I ran it through my typewriter to add my journalling. 

I then embellished my photos and my pattern paper cards with the word stickers from the Art Walk 6x12 sticker sheet. It was a simple but cohesive way to add embellishments.

To complete my spread I used some of the Art Walk thickers and black alpha stickers to create my title straight onto my photo. I love the way this pops against my photo.
This spread came together quickly because I used the one collection and repeated the same elements. It is such a great way to get your projects done!
You can find the Art Walk collection here at your local JoAnn store!
