Heidi Swapp Memory Files Album Part 3

Here is part 3 of my Heidi Swapp Memory Files Album

Here is the YouTube video showing you everything in detail.

I followed along with the prompt on Heidi Swapp's blog and this week we were supposed to tell who inspires us. I did a mixture of who and what inspires me.

For this week, I did the back of page 8 and pages 9 through 12.  
Here are the pictures. Please watch the YouTube video for product details.

On these two pages, I showed that my husband and daughter inspire me. 

On these two pages I showed my family inspires me and my good friend who introduced me to scrapbooking (thanks Robbie)!!!

My journaling spot is still blank. I hadn't done the journaling yet when I took these pictures.

The page on the left shows my inspiration from Ali Edwards, Heidi Swapp, and Becky Higgins.
The set of three sheet protectors show my love for blogs, YouTube, and all of the scrapbooking mfg's and their design teams. I get so much inspiration from each of these.

The back of the sheet protectors hold some of my favorite subway art/quotes from Pinterest.
The next page shows "My happy space", aka my craft room!

Thank you for looking! Hope you are inspired to create.

See you on the next blog post.

Heidi Swapp Memory Files Album Part 2

Here is part 2 of my Heidi Swapp Memory Files Album

Here is the YouTube video showing you everything in detail.

I followed along with the prompts from Heidi Swapp's blog for week 2, pages 5 through 8.

We were to add in our favorite quotes to pages 5 through 8.  I decided to add in quotes for my one little word, "focus."  If you follow Ali Edwards then you know what one little word means.  If not, you can go here for more information.

For 2013, I chose the word "focus" to represent my year. Focus on me, my health, my relationships, etc.

I have some quotes pinned in Pinterest that I decided to add to this album.

Here are the pictures.

Here is the back of page 4
These are some chipboard pieces from the Melody Ross Soul Food collection. I also used a Studio Calico mask, paint, and some color shine mists.

Page 5

This page was done using a stencil, paint, mist, and a quote printed on vellum. 
I also used a stamp, Dear Lizzy letter stickers, Heidi Swapp frame, Pink Paislee butterfly and some ephemera from Pink Paislee Daily Junque collection.

Back of page 5

I used a Christy Tomlinson doily mask with some blue paint. I added in another quote and some Pink Paislee Daily Junque paper and a Heidi Swapp tag.

The inside of the paper flap.

Page 6
I used the doily mask again. This page represents my love for my Fitbit which I bought from Amazon
I took a picture of the fitbit in the package the day I received it. I ran the picture through PicMonkey to give it a soft, bokeh effect.

Back of Page 6

I love this quote from
I cute the Polaroid from my Silhouette Cameo. 
I used a stencil and some paint on the paper and then stuck down the Polaroid cut and picture. 
I used a couple of Lily Bee rub-ons on the top and bottom of the page.

Page 7

Page 7 is a sheet protector. I cut some paper to fit and used some Heidi Swapp color shine letters and mists to add my one little word, "focus."

Back of page 7
I used another stencil and some paint and just added a positive "self respect" subway art type print to the page.

Page 8

 I cut this "one day at a time" from my Silhouette Cameo. This is an Ali Edwards cut from Designer Digitals. 
I used some Heidi Swapp mists to color the cut. I added the "note to self" letters which are Heidi Swapp letters from Michael's. I also used another doily mask and some ivory paint on the top and bottom of the page.

This is just a reminder to myself to take it one day at a time. 

Well that is my pages 5 through 8 in my memory files album. 

I am enjoying the prompts on Heidi's blog and am having fun using my supplies.

I hope you will join me.

See you on the next post.

What's In Progress Video

I filmed this What's In Progress video yesterday and forgot to share it here on my blog.

This is my 2nd video in this new series on my YouTube.  

In this video I give you a tour of our home office, aka my husband's "Man Cave!" 

I also give you an update on my 2010 project life album using the new Jade project life kit by Becky Higgins.

On a sad note, please keep the town of West, Texas in your thoughts and prayers. 

This disaster hits close to home for me and my husband and family.  We grew up in Hillsboro, TX which is about 15 miles north of West.  I grew up spending time with family in West and visiting their local bakeries/stores. We still have family and friends that live there that have lost their homes. It is a very sad day and my husband and I are watching the local news around the clock for updates.

Heidi Swapp Memory Files Album - Part 1

I want to share with you the beginning of my Heidi Swapp Memory Files album.

Heidi Swapp is having an 8 week Memory File Album Adventure journey on her blog

You can follow along with her prompts to help fill your new album.

Here is my video showing you the album, what I have completed so far, and the supplies that I am using.

I have followed most of the prompts for week 1. I also used the free printables that were designed by Heidi for this album. (lots of photos below)

Here is my cover. 
For some additional paper I am using an older collection called Daily Junque by House of Three/Pink Paislee. I also used some Ali Edwards stamps, Glitz roller doodle stamps, inks, and other goodies from my stash. 

I had fun!!

I misted some Heidi Swapp ribbon with her Tropicana Teal mist for the spine. I also added a couple of charms.

Here is page one.

Hope you will join me.
