What a Wonderful Wednesday!

We have been hanging out with Heidi Swapp all week and let me tell you how inspired I am! Wow…their team is incredible. I love the attention to detail and the inspiration. Did you see Maridette’s interactive layout yesterday? I mean WOW! Definitely on my to do list to try.

On Wednesday’s Heidi takes over their blog so make sure you head over there today for some great ideas. I love her videos on the My Craft Channel. Today our team is working some more Mixed Company and some Believe Heidi Swapp projects.

First up Tracy Gruber!

I loved pairing the colors in the Heidi Swapp Mixed Company collection with the different Core’dinations cardstocks!  This confetti paper is so fun and really reminds me of the texture of Core’dinations with the dots so why not pair it with the  turquoise  cardstock from the Spotted Tillie Dot and the light pink from the Pastels paper pad?  Simply sand over both of them with your Sand It Gadget…it’s that easy!  I also cut 1 inch circles, embossed them with an embossing folder, and sanded them to create what looks like a scalloped border using the Navy from the Darks Collection pad.  I cut down the patterned paper to 11.5 x 11.5 inches and matted the whole thing with a piece of gray Core’dinations from the Neutrals paper pad. I like how this makes the Mixed Company patterned paper really “pop”.  To create the embellishments, I used my Spellbinder’s circles to cut the patterns from a piece the Mixed Company Good Life paper They look like premade embellishments!


And a close up…


Tracy does such a great job on this card by mixing and matching the stripes and dots and adding some of the fun Heidi Swapp Chipboard stickers. They are the perfect accent for any card or layout. Just put them on my wish list 😉

I thought it would be fun to create a card using the extra supplies from my layout!  I used the same turquoise Spotted Tillie Dot and some patterned paper from the Mixed Company Collection.  I added some stickers and crinkle ribbon to complete my card!

And guess what we have in store for you tomorrow and Friday? The gorgeous Heidi Swapp Believe Collection!

Here is a little  sneak of this collection from Clare Buswell…don’t go far, you will want to see more of this Holiday collection this week. Loving how Clare used the Jingle All the Way 12×12 sheet for her sentiment on this card. Who doesn’t love some chalkboard and this sheet makes it EASY! No stamping…no mess…just some scissors.

Make card from cardstock. Emboss Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection cardstock, sand with Sand-It gadget and wipe with Dust Buddy. Ink edges with Distress Ink and adhere to card front. Add lace, ribbon and ric rac. Layer sentiment panel onto patterned paper, ink edges and machine stitch border, adhere to card with foam pads. Attach holly, string and bells embellishments.

Joy to the World
And what amazing detail with the bells and holly!
