Some important links this week –> Heidi Swapp blog for TONS if inspiration AND Heidi Swapp Facebook page, too! I heard a rumour there are some giveaways going over there in addition so some amazing inspiration. If you have ever seen their design team’s projects….I mean INCREDIBLE!
Let’s get started with some Heidi Swapp Mixed Company projects with Suzanna Lee:
I wanted to match my Coredinations cardstock to the wonderful colors that Heidi used in this line and compliment the dots and circular textures used in the patterned papers. Though subtle, the top dotted punched border is made using some of Core’s spotted line to compliment the confetti of the background. Check out those letters!! My favorite part of this layout. First, cut out your title (I used Bebas font with my Silhouette). Then rub Distress stain on your embossing folder, place your letters in the folder and run it through your die cutting system. I do recommend waiting for the letters to dry and bit before removing them from the embossing folder so as not to “stretch” them.
and some close ups…some embossed Core!
So cool how cool those embossed letters are?!

And next up Debbie Standard working that Heidi Swapp Mixed Company and Core’dinations Fancy Pants Core Impressions. It’s amazing how these color just work perfectly together! Debbie used her Spellbinder’s dies to really work that patterned paper and Core’dinations and make her own unqiue embellishments. Then, she hand cut some of the gorgeous flowers found in the Mixed Media line. Don’t be afraid to mix and matc the flowers and graphic prints found in this gorgeous line for unique, one of a kind scrapbooking layouts and projects.
