Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to Minc It Monday!
I don’t know about you, but I always love to start a week with some fresh inspiration and something that just makes me happy. Simple joys, right?!?
So in the spirit of simple joys (and Minc It Monday), I wanted to share a layout that I recently created using some of my favourite Heidi Swapp MINC products that you can find now at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and JoAnn Online.
I used the following MINC products to create my page…and yes these are personal top MINC favourites of mine!
First up of course is the magic maker itself, my 12″ MINC Applicator.
Next up are these GORGEOUS die cut butterflies that are a MUST HAVE. They are just SO pretty when foiled and have endless creative possibilities for layouts, cards, home decor you name it!
And now for the VERY fun part….choosing the foil colours! For this project I chose gold, rose gold and champagne. <3
And as a refresher, for those who are not as familiar with the MINC machine or how it works I linked a basic MINC tutorial video below to familiarize (or re-familiarize) yourself with how amazing it is!
So once I foiled my butterflies in my desired foiled colours it was time to get to work!
In order to pull my entire layout together, I also used some of the brand new Jen Hadfield Heart of Home collection. This collection is also available right now at Jo-Ann (online only) and coordinates so perfectly with the MINC products.
I had the best time mix and matching the different styles of butterflies in their foiled colours to really bring my layout to life. The dimensional aspect of these butterflies with the shine on this page really helps make it pop!
For my page I chose to use a sewing machine and gold thread to attach them, but you can also use a stapler, basic adhesive or dimensional adhesive as well.
Incorporating my MINC machine onto my layouts is definitely a favourite technique of mine. I hope you are inspired to as well. And don’t forget, all of these goodies I played with today are all available now at JoAnn Stores and/or JoAnn online!
Happiest Monday everyone XO.
