create to remember – project life panoramic pocket pages

let’s be honest here. i take a lot of photos. a lot. usually each one tells part of the full story that i don’t want to leave any out! today i wanted to share how to get more real estate in your Becky Higgins Project Life album by using my Project Life Panoramic Pocket Pages.

here is Design P, all 4×4 squares perfect for Instagram photos and i used it to document my trip to Italy! i love that the flaps open to the side…

so there is more room to add photos! can you believe they give you almost a page and a half more pockets to work with?!!


here is another example – Design C, flips up from the top…


and was perfect for my sons’ rugby photos! what i love about there being more room is the more space to add journaling and interactive cards like this one…


you can find out how i created this fun interactive card, along with many more tips and tricks to these pages in my free Heidi Swapp Project Life E*Idea Book right here!

photo pocket pages don’t have to be used as is! you can fold them, cut them – use them how you need them! watch this week’s NEW ‘Create to Remember’ episode to see how i customize them for these pages above!

create to remember: stamp it!

it’s Wednesday, which means i have a NEW ‘Create to Remember’ episode! today i wanted to share with you an easy solution to customizing your #HSProjectLife Becky Higgins Project Life Core Kit cards! In both the Favorite Things and Dreamy Core Kits you get 10 cards of each 3×4 design! that is a lot of cards!!! why not customize them to fit whatever project you are using them for with stamps?

i have three ways you can add a little personality with stamping…

Interchangeable Stamp

this little stamp has the cutest designs to use with this re-inking tool! i share how to to use it, get a perfect stamp every time, and clean it in my video today!

Clear Stamps

my new #HSProjectLife clear stamp set has small words that will fit perfectly on a 3×4 card. there are even cute ‘fill in the blank’ stamps to customize it to whatever you are journaling! they are fun to use when you are using them to play off the titles and captions already printed on the cards.

Date Stamp

lastly, i have my new #HSProjectLife Date Stamp with the months in my handwriting! in my video i share some tips and tricks to getting a perfect stamp every time!

watch today’s episode below, and grab yourself a Core Kit! try out some of these quick and easy ways to use stamps to add a bit of fabulous to your pocket pages!

it’s color magic!

happy Wednesday!!! today i have a new episode of ‘Create to Remember‘ where I show you my newest ‘September Skies’ Color Magic Ephemera and how to customize these diecuts! this Color Magic paper has been specially designed to soak in my Color Shine beautifully. they are printed with a clear transparent resist so that when you add mist, ink, chalk, or even watercolor it reveals the printed pattern! it really is like magic!

watch today’s video below to see how using a makeup sponge will give you more control over applying the Color Shine! i guarantee, it is so fun and easy that you won’t be able to do just one!

create to remember: spiral additions

today is another episode of ‘Create to Remember‘ where i show you one of my all time FAVORITE tips!!! have you ever bought a spiral bound book or journal and wanted to add more pages or photos? if you have a MEMORY PLANNER you know what i mean! i get people telling me all the time that they wish they could add an invitation or maybe another photo to their planner… well there is a way and it takes no time at all!

all you need is either a binding machine, like The Cinch by We R Memory Keepers or a hole punch and scissors! that’s it! (i am using one of my 4×6 Becky Higgins Project Life Clear Value Kit cards here.)  punch your holes, snip the holes with scissors, and slide into your album! it is that easy!!!

now just think of the things you could add to your planner or already bound albums! i have added an envelope to store more memorabilia…

the stamp on this envelope is from my Project Life My Heart Stamp and Stencil Set

i also added an invitation too!

watch today’s episode to see how easy it really is! then, get out your spiral bound books and ‘make pretty stuff’!!!

Create To Remember: Dreamy Mini

HELLO Wednesday! i LOVE a good wednesdaY! especially because today i get to share this really cutie “dreamy” mini on my “Create to Remember” webshow!  It’s so much fun to make! I am using just a couple pieces from the Dreamy Memory File kit! I have made it 2 different ways – 1. i used the CINCH to bind it all together with a wire binding. I folded the paper to that it hides that binding from the front view.  2. (as shown in the video today) i punched holes and tied it together with ribbon.

i filled this mini with photos that we took last December… strangely enough, we sold this fun JEEP this week, and now i am feeling kinda sad! :(

it’s so amazing how a NEW SCHOOL YEAR can make all the kids look, and seem so much older! I love having these pics all in one place!


I have created a FULL SCALE set of instructions that you can download…. so HERE’s the VIDEO, check it out—- grab the instructions and MAKE PRETTY STUFF!
