Heidi Swapp “Picturesque” Project Life – Review and Card Sets for Sale

I try to keep up on all the new Project Life things that come out but it’s hard to do these days; there are so many. When I was at Michaels in the big city last week, seeing this kit for the first time was a pleasant surprise: Heidi Swapp “Picturesque”.

Just looking at the front, I wasn’t too sure. It looked maybe too nature-y?

Note: The image of my arms holding an iPhone 6+ does NOT come with the kit.

But when I turned the box over, I fell in love! Must. Have. This. Now.

Bloop! Into the cart.

What was that you said? Why no, I don’t usually get a cart at Michaels. But I was looking for WMRK albums that day. So there, smarty pants. It’s like you were trying to imply that I’m a scrapbook shopaholic or something. So are you but what am I??

When I got home, I opened this kit and loved it even more.

You might want to get your Paypal fired up. Just sayin’ . . .

4×6 double-sided cards; I flipped them so you’re seeing both sides here.

More 4×6 double-sided cards but these are the ones where you can use the same design either vertically or horizontally. For my fellow English majors, that’s “up and down” or “sideways”.

Then you have 4×6 double-sided cards meant to be used vertically. I flipped them so you’re seeing both sides.

Here are all the 3×4 cards – all double-sided, flipped so you can see both sides.

Phew! So my favorite things about this line are the blue and grey colors, the relaxed vibe, lots of white for journaling and to give my photos room to breathe, etc. I normally don’t like “photo-realistic” scrapbook supplies because, to me, it’s confusing to the eye – which is the real photo and which is just for embellishment? LOL But the photography and coloring on these don’t make it feel that way. The photos are faded so they don’t compete.

I have lots of ideas for these but I think they’ll work especially well with beach photos.  They could even be fun for a non-traditional take on First Day of School.  On that little “Check” card right above here, you could put a checklist of things they wanted to take to school the first day.

For Sale

As much as we love our Project Life Core Kits, I defy a scrapper to use eleventy-jillion cards from the same line. So, once the caffeine kicked in and I could do math, I set about dividing them up into keep vs. sell. That’s where you come in: Want some?
