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!!

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!!



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:


Here’s a peek of the insides:


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 Heart Stickers ($3)

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

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!

. . . 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.

    I spotted HS in a Michaels in Calgary on Saturday. Well, whatever was still in stock because it had been picked clean! ;) But I was able to pick up some papers, chipboard and stickers. Beautiful collection!

    Thanks for the in-depth look at Heidi Swapp’s planner products! I agree with you. As much as I love all the neat planner items available for scrappers, I think I’ll stick with my Franklin Planner that I’ve been using for almost 20 years.

    I am already far enough behind trying to do my regular scrapping that I don’t want to try to decorate my planner as well. Plus, I’d want to do it like Amy Tan, and I know I’d never measure up. It is fun to window shop, though!

      Nadine, that’s exactly how I feel. I can’t do a pretty planner now but it sure is fun to look at them. A lot of scrappers get so artistic and I love it.

    I have the same planner as Amy Tan – love my Day Designer, although mine isn’t as pretty as hers is!
