A weekend with " Beach Fun


You all know how much I LOVE Heidi Swapp.. and how much I LOVE to create with her beautiful products!! Well I LOVE it even more when I am totally creatively drained and in a slump and TA DA.. Heidi Swapp has these free classes as such on her My Craft Channel site. They are so awesome to watch and I recommend it to anyone! Heidi does so many different techniques and ideas - all while using her 

Well when I saw the " My Favourite Things - Summer Mini" I knew I had a spare file folder kit tucked away here and the perfect summer beach photos that I wanted to create a mini album with. So I tagged along with the video and created the mini with Heidi's step by step instructions!! 

I then took the constructed album and some embellies with me to my retreat weekend and started to play. And this is what I came up with.. I am so pleased with this album and itching to make some more file folders...

So grab a cuppa as this post is quite photo heavy.. 

 I sprinkled glitter bows through out the album , which I made with the Maggie Holmes die set and some $2  shop glitter paper. 

I made some "flowers" using my Martha Stewart circle punch and added in some cut wedges..

I just love these photo stacks!1 They are so fun and I love treating each flip as a new "layout" to decorate. 

Then below is the album pages that are created within the black and white striped file folder. 

I love the graphic prints mixed in with gorgeous pink, soft florals.

The plastic acetate embellishments are prefect to layer over photos without it distracting too much from the photo itself..

A little while back Heidi Swapp had a "Selfie" week on her blog and she was super kind enough to share a free Selfie cut title in her handwriting.. So I added that title to this album and just drew a black fine tip pen through the middle of it to help make it stand out.

Then lastly I had to add one last glitter bow just for good I swear I could just add them all over the place. I really have to restrain myself..

So if you have never been to Heidi Swapp's My Craft Channel I highly recommend you make the time to do so . She is so passionate and inspiring I promise you , you will want to play and make pretty stuff right away..

Thanks so much for stopping by and I love reading your comments. 

Till next time 

Much love 

Bernii xx
