3 WAYS TO CELEBRATE FATHER’S DAY
With Fathers Day just around the corner, I am excited to share 3 simple and very fun ways to help honour that special dad, or father figure in your life using the brand new Heidi Swapp Stationery collection now available in select Michaels Stores.
Even though the products I am using in today’s post are not “fathers day specific”, it really does not matter because the entire collection is SO versatile you can really completely transform it to make it fit whatever occasion you are needing it for. That is truly what sets this entire line apart from anything else really. The ability to completely customize it to fit your needs. I love that, don’t you?
I am going to share 3 different ways I used pieces from the Stationery collection to document and celebrate Fathers Day. These ideas can be keepsakes for yourself, or serve as gifts. Totally up to you. I chose to accent all of my projects today using this particular Embellishment Kit from the Stationery collection. It is the Gold kit and inside of this kit you will find all of these delicious goodies…
We have epoxy stickers, glitter stickers, labels, note pads and yes…confetti! Any occasion is always deserving of confetti. These kits are so wonderful at helping to customize any project just a little further.
So let me show you how I used this kit in 3 different ways, on 3 different Fathers Day projects simply and effortlessly!
Project 1: Basic Fathers Day Card
Of course when one thinks of Fathers Day, we immediately think of a card. So I chose this gorgeous card from the Heidi Swapp Stationery collection and then accented it with this white and gold coordinating envelope.
Using the kit I was able to embellish the envelope with this kraft label and I even added a few of the epoxy stickers on top.
Inside the card I added one of the note cards with a personalized message. I then added a photo inside the card and as a finishing touch could not resist adding in a surprise with the gold and kraft confetti.
Project 2: Interactive Card Photo Flip Album
I remember when I first laid eyes on this collection I thought to myself how fun these pieces would be to layer and combine.
That being said, I decided to create a fun little photo memory album by combining 2 different styles of cards and then sewing them down the middle to create a fun little photo card flip album.
Once I had my cards sewn together, I added in some favourite photos as well as some Instax photos and embellished with elements from the Stationery embellishment kit.
I love using the note pads for journaling. They are so great and I love the different designs. The gold alphabet stickers in the kit are perfect for embellishing Instax photos too.
Project 3: Embellish a Storyline Layout
The third and final way I chose to use the Stationery Embellishment kit to document Fathers Day was to incorporate some of the kit’s pieces onto a Storyline layout.
Nobody loves embellishing layouts more than me, so when I went through the kit I thought to myself how pretty some of these pieces would be on a Storyline layout recording Fathers Day.
The note cards are so fun to layer together to add additional journaling on. I even added a label onto one of them. The alphabet stickers are wonderful to create titles with and as always, epoxy stickers just add that little extra something.
Being creative with supplies is always such a great way to get an extra bang for your buck!
Who knew you could do so many things and create so many different projects with a little help from this cute Stationery Embellishment Kit? I just love it! You can see the entire collection of kits here….because you just know they come in more than one colour and style! 🙂
Remember this entire collection is available now in select Michaels Stores, and is exclusive so you won’t find it anywhere else!
