Heidi Swapp

Scrapbook Product: InstaLife from Heidi Swapp

I came across this video and thought I’d share it with y’all.

HERE is the entire line on the Heidi Swapp website – cute stuff!

On the one hand, the photos seem really tiny so I wonder how much you can capture in that amount of space, photographically speaking.

But I love the idea of having that little printer handy on trips and events, printing right there from my phone, and putting them in an album or hanging them on that cute arrow right over your desk.

My 3 favorites from the “InstaLife” line by Heidi Swapp:

InstaLife Guest Book Travel

InstaLife Heart Pinboard

InstaLife Album Ocean

I still want one of these cool LIGHTBOXES that I saw at CHA, too!

Was hoping they’d show up at Michaels so I can use coupons to get the lightbox and some accessories.

I haven’t been to Michaels in a few weeks but it says the InstaLife products are carried there. Have you seen InstaLife (or the Lightboxes) there?

Scrapbook Shopping Report: Michaels and Tuesday Morning – January 2016

I recently went to Tuesday Morning and Michaels in search of scrapbook stuff and wanted to report in :)

Tuesday Morning

This display greeted me when I walked in, which I figured was a good sign since it’s my favorite shades of blue + my first initial.

 

IMG_1756

 

Here are some things that were new to my Tuesday Morning – by Jillibean Soup, Studio Calico, Cosmo Cricket, and Prima.

IMG_1757

IMG_1758

Some of those cute straws from American Crafts, enamel dots in 3 color ways from Basic Grey, and Tim Holtz tissue tape.

IMG_1759

 

If you love Echo Park kits, now’s a great time to check out Tuesday Morning! Even in my little store, there were 4 options, each for $5.99.

IMG_1760

 

Also a bunch of paper pads for $6.99 each.

IMG_1761

Guess which one of these pretty American Crafts spiral books I bought? I’m going to use it for the listing challenge I’m doing. There are 48 heavy cardstock-weight pages including some pockets and die cut pages.

IMG_1762

If you Instagram, maybe you’d like this 4×4 Album Kit by WRMK?

IMG_1763

IMG_1764

 

Does that label say “HEID” Swapp? Must’ve rubbed off, huh?

IMG_1765

Some cool tools and stamps . . .

IMG_1766

Here’s my purchase at the Tuesday Morning counter. It’s a happy coincidence that the enamel dots I chose match the album perfectly.

IMG_1767

Michaels

If you love COLOR, now’s a great time to visit Michaels. First, I saw these cute tapes, twines, and clips . . .

IMG_1768

IMG_1769

. . . then all the crazy-colorful storage and office items I’ve been hearing about! My favorites were the padded patent leather notebooks and the big “to do” list pads.

IMG_1770

IMG_1771

As I talked about HERE, there were new (to me) Hot Buy paper pads and I timed it just right = 70% off. Woot! Pink Paislee “Memorandum” came home with me. I had mentioned in that post wanting the Craftsmith “Words to Live By” pad but in person, I didn’t care for it.

IMG_1772

It was all I could do to resist these pretty dark teal spinner trays. They were $35 but, even with the 40% off coupon on my phone, more than I wanted to spend. I hope they’re around long enough for me to get one later. Michaels had a lot of deco items in this vein – kind of boho crafty.

IMG_1773

I looked at TJ Maxx too but didn’t find anything scrappy – although I did find 2 hoodies similar to this one:

life is good zip hoodie

Note: To picture me and MY hoodies, please adjust this model for a larger, older version :P

One hoodie is distressed black and the other a deep fuchsia, with different sayings. They’re super soft and comfy. This brand is usually out of my price range but they were each $30 instead of $50-ish. Yahoo for my winter work-at-home uniform, LOL. Now I just need to get Old Navy carrying their awesome sweatpants again and I’m golden. They’re really into the compression pants right now and, well, um, me and compression don’t get along. Bwahahaha!

CHA 2016, Part 4: Heidi Swapp

Next stop was Heidi Swapp. (Next stop was Heidi Swapp, Next stop was Heidi Swapp . . . that is SO going in my scrapbook rap video!)

It’s Heidi so of course there was glitter.

Embellishments and some existing Marquee Love

On the right, looks like some new Marquee Love

New embellishment words in Heidi’s famous handwriting, with gold on the top and colors on the edges. See the pink?

DSCN6931

DSCN6932

Lovin’ these ocean colored words. On the wish list! I hope they show up at Michaels.

My favorite thing from from Heidi Swapp was the awesome Lightbox! You can personalize the message and design. Can’t wait to see these in person. Again, “C’monnnnn, Michaels. I’m counting on you!”

Scrapbook Shopping: Tuesday Morning and Michaels Hauls – October 2015

Here’s a look at some things Michaels is carrying these days along with photos of my recent hauls from Michaels and Tuesday Morning :)

MICHAELS

My Michaels had some new album and planner kits. The only one that caught my eye was the kit on the left. I opened it up and, to be honest, wasn’t impressed with the quality. Oh well, made it easy not to spend money.

IMG_1095

I noticed some new washi styles – in the top 2 rows of this pic.

IMG_1096

I got MORE Heidi Swapp stickers. These clear ones are so useable and so cute. I also got the cork “washi” which is rad. I think it’ll be fun to layer with.  All HS was 50% off and I used a 50% off coupon for the cork tape. Score!

IMG_1117

TUESDAY MORNING

I had a better trip this time to Tuesday Morning than I’ve had in a while. While shopping, I was texting with my scrap bestie, asking if she wanted this or that.

And then laying out everything I was going to buy and pretty much bragging about all my finds via texted photo :P I’m not all bad; I bought the Maggie Holmes bows and triangle tack thingees for her <3

IMG_1115

Yes, you’re reading that right: a $50 OttLite for only $20. ‘Nother score!

IMG_1116

Couldn’t resist taking more photos of my haul when I got home. I’m quite proud apparently.

IMG_1122

IMG_1123

Not bad, eh?

Scrapbook Shopping: Apparently, I Love Enamel :D

I did a little scrappy shopping over Labor Day Weekend.

My favorite find is the Webster’s Pages “Dream in Color” enamel dots.

IMG_1011

This is one of those times when seeing something in person clinches the sale. If I had seen these on Amazon . . .

websters pages enamel dots dream in color

. . . they wouldn’t really have caught my eye. But in person, they are sooooo cute! Granted, those glittery gold dots will probably end up in the trash; I am SO over gold. I mean, I was never ON it but I’m so OVER it. There’s just no love for silver and I don’t get it.

Anyhow, I got those beauties at Beverly’s Crafts and paid full price. I had already used a coupon in the transaction – to get 3 WRMK 12×12 albums for the price of 2. What, WHUUUUTTT? That made them only $20 each instead of $30 so I was okay paying full price for some dots :) But you KNOW I tried to use another coupon. Foiled again!

The other 2 items were from Michaels and they weren’t on sale but I got a little discount on ’em. The cashier entered the coupon for 20% of my total purchase, so that was awesome.

I already have a set of the blue and green dots but those are colors I scrap a lot with. And the Heidi Swapp“Puffy Stickers” are super cute. I just adore her handwriting. She could write “Parcheesi” or “Batmobile” and I would buy them, even though I will never scrapbook a thing on those topics.

More to come on some Project Life stuff I bought . . . will be selling off some of it, if you’re interested!

Have a great day 🔆

Scrapbook Shopping: New Heidi Swapp Planners at Michaels

There has been a lot of chatter on the scrappy interwebs about these Heidi Swapp planners. Rumor has it that, although the entire line was supposed to have arrived at MICHAELS by now, many stores are getting none or just bits and peices because the boxes are caught up in the West Coast shipping strike debacle. The HS planners were a listed sale item at Michaels, I think it was last week, so stores may even have the pegs up and labeled, just not the full product line itself.

Boo hoo, sad scrappers :(

Here’s just a sample of the line. Isn’t it GORGE!!

heidi swapp planner

You can see why scrappies are sooooo sad ….

If you’re a regular here, you know I love to complain about My Lame Michaels which is small and never gets the hot new products until usually weeks after everyone else does. Well, blow me down, they proved me wrong this time!!

BEHOLD.

IMG_0196

Yes, it appears to be a bunch of Heidi Swapp Memory Planner products with both binder and product line versions. {If you want to see the whole thing, it’s HERE on Heidi’s site}.

Here are the fronts of both binders; you can see the $30 price point:

IMG_0198

Here’s a peek of the insides:

IMG_0197

I was under the influence of having just spent an amazing sunny day at the beach and was feeling quite full of myself, so I bought 3 – yes, THREE – items even though I only had ONE coupon. Slipping in my old age, I am.

Heidi Swapp Puffy Chat Stickers ($3)

heidi swapp puffy chat stickers

Heidi Swapp Puffy Heart Stickers ($3)

heidi swapp puffy heart stickers

Heidi Swapp Washi Shapes Booklet ($5 minus 40% coupon)

heidi swapp washi shapes booklet

heidi swapp washi shapes booklet

I paged through the albums a few times each and really, really considered getting one (using the 40% coupon on that instead of the washi, of course). My choice would be the green watercolor one; it’s soooo very pretty. But I just couldn’t justify it. I’ve used the same old boring Dayminder day planner for at least 10 years. Each year, I buy a new refill and file the old one neatly in one of my scrappy drawers for reference back to dates or journaling whenever I need them for scrapbooking.

As much as I want to be one those girls who makes a fun, artistic planner – like Amy Tan, OMG!

amy tangerine planner

. . . I’m just not. Not right now, anyway. And if WERE going down the Planner Road, I’d need to use the Simple Stories “Life Documented” pack of stuff I received at a recent class (which reminds me, I need to post that class review, sheesh!). So, sadly no Heidi Swapp planner for me. But that doesn’t mean I can’t check some of those embellishments off my PINTEREST WISH LIST, now does it?!?! Certainly not :P

If you’re looking for the Heidi Swapp Memory Planner products, I hope they’ve arrived at your Michaels – or do soon. Go forth and use coupons, Scrap Sister.

Tuesday Morning: Basic Grey, Tim Holtz, 7 Gypsies, and More

I just heard from a scrappy friend in Southern Cal that her Tuesday Morning has a BUNCH of BASIC GREY! Lots of embellishments: brads, ephemera, toothpick flags, resins, stamp stickers, die cuts, journal pads, etc. Most are 99 cents. No paper though, boo! I haven’t bought much BG lately (most of my scrappy dough has been going to AMERICAN CRAFTS paper, storage items, and WRMK albums) – so now I have to make ANOTHER trip to Tuesday AM, darn! ;)

Sorry, I don’t have any photos of the Basic Grey to share but it reminded me that I never posted all these Tuesday Morning scrappy pics I took last month.

I have even MORE photos from Tuesday Morning from a more recent visit to their scrapbook section. I need to get them uploaded, then I’ll blog those too so stay tuned! Remember when I said that Tuesday Morning had a NEW CRAFTS BUYER? Well, I’d say she’s doing a great job, wouldn’t you?

Project Life: For Sale – Heidi Swapp “Dreamy” 1/3 Core Kit (SOLD!)

ETA 10-15-14: Both kits have sold. Thanks!

One way I’ve gotten such a great selection of Project Life cards is by buying partial sets from other scrappers. The Core Kits come with a total of 616 cards which includes a LOT of duplicates and who can really use that many, kwim?

When the Heidi Swapp “Dreamy” PL core kit came out, I couldn’t wait to find a partial kit to go on sale and had to just buy it for myself, LOL! But I don’t need the whole thing and would love to sell some of it.

It’s absolutely beautiful, as you can see below, especially if you love that watercolor look that’s so popular in scrapbooking right now.

heidi swapp dreamy project life

heidi swapp dreamy project life

I snagged these images from a website but these are the same cards I’m selling :) They’re even more delicious in person.

You get approximately 1/3 of the total HS Dreamy kit:
(30) 4×6 cards including some that can fold in half to hide journaling if you want
(150) 3×4 cards

I have (2) sets.

$11 per set including shipping within US
or $8 per set plus actual shipping outside US

Smoke-free, pet-free home
Paypal preferred but we can talk :)

If you’d like a partial set of Heidi Swapp “Dreamy” Project Life cards, please leave a comment below or e-mail me: scrapbookobsession(at)gmail(dot)com !

Scrapbook Product Wish List: “September Skies” by Heidi Swapp

I’m kind of hot and cold with Heidi Swapp. Well, I mean, not her PERSONALLY {because I don’t know her, unfortunately} but her scrapbooking products. Sometimes I love them and other times I kinda’ go “meh.” She can go off the rails at times for me, too bright and crazy and busy.

But here’s a new line by HS called “September Skies” that is definitely on my wish list – love it!

You can see the entire line HERE.

Here’s a layout Heidi made using “September Skies” – isn’t it lovely?

I think I summed it up pretty well on my PINTEREST BOARD: “Fresh + not your typical Fall line + leave it to Heidi Swapp”.

I love the blue / pink / navy color combo – for Fall, no less. It’s new and different and fun. I think this works especially well for Californians like me where September and even October still feel like Summer, with sun and fun and temps in the 80s and 90s. I was just at the beach the other day and those pics would look great with this line!

I’ll be looking for a good deal on the “September Skies” line so I can add it to my stash and make some late-summer pages! Do you like it?

Project Life: Heidi Swapp “Dreamy”, “Favorite Things”, and LOTS More!

Okay, guys, I’m trying to keep up with this whirlwind of new PROJECT LIFE product – either out now or coming soon. There has been a lot of chatter about it online. I’ll be doing this post and a couple more to make sure you see it ALL.

A shout out to my bud Heather, who first shared photos she found online of new lines “Lovely” by Shimelle (see THIS entry for more info) and “Favorite Things” by Heidi Swapp.

Heidi has teamed up with Becky for MANY new Project Life items. You can read about them and see photos HERE and HERE on Becky’s blog. And check out this video if you have time. I’m sorry, but they are both just so dang likable!

The Heidi Swapp line is ‘exclusive’ to Michaels and also being carried in Becky’s own shop. My favorite item from the Heidi Swapp line for Project Life is the “Dreamy” Core Kit

It reminds me of “Color Wash” by Pink Paislee . . .

. . . which is one of my all-time favorite scrapbooking lines.

I did hear a rumor that some of the HS cards are not double sided and not horizontal so they’ll be harder to use in the PL pocket pages DESIGN A that I prefer to use. Anyone know if that’s true?

Again, shout out to Heather who took photos at Michaels!

As you can see, there are a lot of OTHER new HS items, too. I’m not sure if they’re technically “Project Life”? I think so because Heidi has them all listed together on her WEBSITE.

I’ll be stalking Michaels to find that Heidi Swapp “Dreamy” core kit and snap it up with my coupon! Usually I just buy partial PL kits from friends online but I need to see this one in person and go through the whole thing before I decide how much of it I want. But I’ll probably sell at least some of it off.

So glad to see the collab between Heidi and Becky. As you saw in the video, they’ve been friends for a long time and bring totally different things to our scrapbooking world, both of which I love. Congrats ladies!

Michael’s Scrapbook Haul from a GOOD Mike’s

In MY LAST POST, I talked about my trip to an out-of-town Michaels – a GOOD Michaels – that I had so much fun shopping at. Now, it’s time to show you what I bought there.

Here’s the whole shebang.

IMG_4450

I didn’t show these little MAMBI Sticks in the other post but ain’t they cute? I love these for Project Life and other pocket pages. They’re mostly flat but add a little bit of depth and lots of color. The little banners to their right by American Crafts will probably go in my PL as well. I love putting banners across the corner of a photo that has some white space. There’s a Heidi Swapp “Sunburst” stencil that I’ve wanted forever. {I could only get one and had to put the Hearts stencil back, boo hoo}. There’s the 2 chevron washi tapes from Recollections DIY; I also had pink but put it back. Like with the burlap embellishments in my last post, I’m hoping my Michaels will eventually get this washi and I’ll buy it with a coupon.

IMG_4451

Here is the large MAMBI Sticks pack that I chose from the FIVE I wanted, LOL. I can’t find a name on it, unfortunately :( It has a lot of sayings about life, being positive, gratitude, etc.

IMG_4452

Along with the medium-sized set of MAMBI Sticks in the top photo, far right, I’m going to use these on a project I’m starting. For that, you’ll have to read my next post. Yeah, I’m such a tease!

See ya’ later, gator ;)

New at Michaels: Heidi Swapp Alpha, Mini Iris Case, and Recollections Enamel Dots

A few cute finds at Michaels this week that I wanted to share with you . . .

I’m addicted to the large Iris cases (see 2nd photo) to hold my 12×12 “projects in progress”. I grab 1 or 2 whenever they’re on sale which they were this week ($4 versus about $7-8 regular price). For the first time, I noticed this adorable little mini version of the same case!

IMG_3702

If I recall correctly, they were $5. I think they’re like THESE but I’m not sure. I couldn’t think of a use for it so I left it at the store. But if you can help me justify purchasing one, please let me know :) I need some enabling!

What I did buy:

IMG_3703

The large Iris case plus some Recollections enamel dots in Valentines colors ($2.39 on sale) and a pack of the new HEIDI SWAPP sea green plastic letters ($2.69 using 40% off coupon). The letters are nice and thin so I figure I can use my TINY ATTACHER to attach them to pages. Love the color and font!

Out the door for less than a tenner. That’s my kinda’ shopping trip. What have you found at Mike’s lately?

PS: In honor of Mr. Perry’s 65th (YES 65th!) birthday today, I bring you some STEVE AWESOMENESS. Don’t be afraid to click. It’s a Youtube of Journey singing “Don’t Stop Believin'” . . . a cappella. It will melt you. I’ve already listened 4 times ;)

Have a wonderful day!

Online Scrapbook Classes: True Scrap 4 – Last Chance for $9.95 Each!

Hey there – First of all, I wanted to apologize for not posting the rest of my True Scrap 4 class reviews in time for today’s deadline for a cheaper price (see below). But the craziness of the Christmas season took over . . . then I had a sick kiddo . . . then I got strep throat :(

I’m going to continue reviewing the classes as I feel better, but I wanted to remind you that after midnight PST tonight (12-25-12), the price increases by $3 per class. Even at $12.95, they’re a great deal though.

If you’d like to sign up or just learn more about the whole thang: “TRUE SCRAP 4” individual classes

Merry Christmas to all the scrapbook obsessed !!!

Online Scrapbook Classes: “True Scrap 4” Classes Available for Individual Purchase as of 12-17-12!!

Back in October 2012, I talked about how excited I was to take part in my first live “True Scrap” online scrapbooking event.  I posted about HERE, HERE, and HERE.  And HERE is what started my love affair with True Scrap . . . an individual class I took from True Scrap 3 by Shimelle Laine called “The Perfect Collection” . . . still hands down the most useful scrapbook class I’ve ever taken.

… so I get a tad obsessive.  Jeez.  Didya’ notice the name of my blog by chance?

Anyway, that experience did not go as planned sadly.  I ended up having to be out of town that weekend.  I’d already registered for the event, of course, but figured at least I could watch the classes “live” from my iPhone while we were driving or I had down time on the trip.

Howevah!  That didn’t work either.  For whatever reason, I couldn’t watch on my iPhone either.  Shooks.  So I was out of luck.  When I got home from the trip, real life took over . . . as it has a tendency to do . . . and I kind of skimmed through some classes but didn’t really “take” them, iykwim.  I never wrote the class reviews I promised either (bad baaad blogger!!).

But with the fact that “TRUE SCRAP 4” individual classes are now – as of today 12/17/12 – available for individual purchase, it has spurred me to finally sit down and take the classes.  I’ll be providing reviews in the coming days to hopefully help you in deciding if you’d like to take any of the classes.

There is one reason to NOT wait for my reviews and just sign up already:  The regular price on these classes is $12.95, but from 12/17-12/25, purchasers can save $3 a class and only pay $9.95 per class!! Merry Christmas to you, am I right!?!

That is a great deal any way you slice it.  So sign up now.  Signs up later.  Whatevs.  Just sign up.

Here are some things to know about “TRUE SCRAP 4” individual classes

1.  They are a total of 1 hour long, including before and after chat sessions with Lain (True Scrap organizer) and the instructors.  Here are the 15 instructors, at least several that I’m sure you’ll recognize:

Julie Fei-Fan Balzer
Erin Bassett
Monica Bradford
Kelli Crowe
Laura Denison
Jennifer Gallacher
Nic Howard
Noell Hyman
Katrina Kennedy
Nichol Magouirk
Gretchen Schmidt
Katrina Simeck
Jessica Sprague
Heidi Swapp
Jennifer Wilson

2.  When you sign up through any of my links, you’ll receive a pretty quick e-mail straight from Lain with a link to your class(es).

3.  You have the option to just watch the class video, or to watch it as if you were there “live” with all of the before and after audio and the chat to accompany it.

4.  There is also a link to the chat transcript, and oftentimes a class handout (less note-taking, yee haw!) with links and other helpful things; this varies from class to class and not all classes have handouts.

So I’ve taken my first class and am off to finish writing my review of it – stay tuned!

Heidi Swapp Tote-Ally Cool Tote at Tuesday Morning

I got this a couple weeks ago but wasn’t able to load the photos to my computer until now. I heard these are still at some TUESDAY MORNING stores so I thought I’d show you what a great deal they are.

Here’s what the tote looks like. I chose this blue pattern but there were others, too.

A close up of the price tag, so you can see what a mega deal this is….and a list of what’s in it (hope it’s readable, though blurry…sorry).

Honestly, I bought this for the bag more than anything. I’ve been looking for a large and cute tote to carry all my MEMORY WORKS stuff in, including catalogs and products. This will be perfect because it zips closed so my things won’t get damaged or dusty; it holds the heaviness of the catalogs because it’s sturdy; and it even has lots of cool pockets inside and out to hold my calculator, pens, scissors, blank price tags, etc. The tote alone would sell for about $30.

And I love HEIDI SWAPP embellies, so that’s just icing on the cake.
