sweet oh sweet serendipity!
how i love thee...let me count the ways!
besides it being march, and with spring just around the corner...nothing is making me more excited or happier than the release of this gorgeous new paper collection from heidi swapp! the colour palette just makes me giddy inside! SO many great patterns, colours and details. truly a perfect collection for just about any and every memory that is waiting and wanting to be scrapped!
i used the beautiful collection, along with some other new pieces from the heidi swapp clear pop and colour pop releases (available in stores March 2013) to create this 2 page 12 x 12 layout. all of the details on the how, what, why, where can be found on today's feature post over at www.heidiswapp.com
although this line is SO extremely versatile, i used it to celebrate and commemorate some of my most cherished beach memories from late in 2012. looking at these papers made me think of sunshine, warm weather, fun, smiles and relaxation...so i thought using some beach photos would be perfect.
i created some 3 x 4 cards (which as anyone and everyone knows is SO hot right now) and made each one with it's own little personality. i layered some of the gorgeous clear pop tabs and banner delights, used a clear pop printed pocket for some tucked away journaling and even personalized a color pop window frame. i also used my silhouette cameo to cut out the words "relax" and "vacation" from the heidi swapp digital summer brush collection.
the second half of my layout showcases some more of my favourite instagram memories. i LOVE the layered clear pop tag over the photo. that one has to be my absolute FAV. i also adore the strip of banners I cut out and layered. they are just SO cute and really showcase all of the different patterns of the serendipity collection...and just how well they coordinate together. i love it!
i even created a little mini 3 x 4 sized journaling book to hold more notes, memories and photos. i created this simply by trimming my paper to 4 x 6, folding in half and sewing along the crease. such a simple way to create a mini notebook to coordinate with any project, page, or album!
please make sure to stop by heidi swapp's blog for the FULL breakdown of this project. i hope that this has left you feeling ready for warm weather and eager to document and/or create some future memories so that you can play with this amazing and incredible collection too! i promise you will LOVE it!
