"Remember" More Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic

Hello!  Another vacation layout with more Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic.  Used her background paper, then layered some other patterns from the collection with gesso to mute their pattern a bit and layered with a book page and parchment paper.  

Little glassine bag with sand and tiny shells, sealed with a gold embossed heart :)

Added a bit of gesso with a stencil, then gold embossed a bit over that...

Another shell from the trip, along with the wood veneer heart and arrows.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend!

The Best Kind of Beautiful

Good morning!  I'm so in love with Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic stuff and bought just about one of everything when Michaels had it all in stock :)  I want to give a big thank you to Sara Mendoza, Rendis at Studio Calico, for the awesome RAK.  It was such a big envelope of stuff I've been using it on many layouts - thank you, Sara!  The biggest heart and cute arrow stamp came from her :) 

The second thing I wanted to mention was I could not get my hands on the HS Trimmings, the fringed border that you can apply the heat gun to it and it curls up. I was walking by Lori using the shredder at work the other day and looked in her huge box of shreds and it dawned on me. Grabbed a strip of tape, smushed it down into the shreds and viola! Crinkled trim to top the banner border :) I could have sprayed it with some of the Color Shine mists to change it's color, but I liked the white and already had lots of color going on - lol. Anyway, hope everyone has a good week!

Always Strong

Wants to say a huge thank you to Sara Mendoza, rendis at Studio Calico.  I had mentioned going to visit College Station with Sara, and she got a package of goodies together for me.  The envelope was FULL of the cutest, newest stuff and I can't thank her enough.  Picked up more Heidi Swapp Color Shine - that's what the confetti is.  Echo Park "Strong" label with embossing powder on the edges and held down with some new washi. A layout about Emily and how she powers through some injuries and keeps going :)   Enjoy your day!


Love finding those ornate frames at Michael's in the dollar section - love them!  Grabbed some handmade silver paper and used a silver metal frame from year ago that I never could get rid of.  Dear Lizzy hey and "Home Is Where You Are" quote.  Picture of the house at night with Christmas snow and lights :)
