Good news! (warning… long post!) 

I finally have links to 2 EXCLUSIVE (limited qty) kits that I have personally put together! I know that sometimes it’s hard to find mass-amounts of my products, so I thought it would be fun to gather a few items that I enjoy, and make them available as a set. (I am hoping I can do this from time to time here on my blog… I had a little learning curve of what it takes to set this up from the back end etc… but now it’s all ready to go!)

There are only 100 of each kit available… (if the links aren’t getting you there… you can find these posted under “education” on my website www.heidiswapp.com) 

Girl



Birthday Girl Kit:
Large Pink Florals (a must have)

Brown and Pink argyle tape
Clear oval bling frames (I love to cut these up for crowns)
Clear variety bling frames (these have circles and squares)
The FAMOUS edge distresser
Pink Bordeaux Rub-on alphabet (the new, good ones)
Pink plastic alphabet (control freak)
Lime “she” chipboard alpha
Lime “center of attention” chipboard alpha
Pink Café Decorative tape
5 sheets of Girl  stickers
12 sheets of 9×9 pink papers… (sassy sweet)

for tips, ideas and a little commentary on how I used these products click the above link and I have close up looks and info on how I used all this fun stuff!

So certainly if I was going to do a “girlie” kit, I had to put together a fun BOY kit! So… I I pulled out some of my favorite pages from the “just for looks” book and created a kit that has a bunch of great stuff… I also wrote up some tips and tricks for creating these pages! (click the below link)… grab yourself a copy of the book to get an up close look at the layouts I have highlighted!

Boy



Extreme BOY Kit:
White Silhouette Stars
Crimson (boy) Fuzzy Rub-ons (see tutorial below)
White (stars) Fuzzy Rub-ons
Ghost stars
Numbers Decorative Tape
Summer Days Decorative Tape
Sport Decorative Tape
Sports Rub-ons
b/w Block letter stickers
Pumpkin “center of attention” chipboard alphabets
Star mini-mask
Black & White “Center of attention” rub-ons *the new, good stuff!
2 sets of “hot stuff” clear stickers…don’t be afraid, these ROCK!
“Days of the week” journaling spots
Brads

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the ‘just for looks’ book … you have to get your hands on one! Of course, there is no shortage of idea books out there! But I wanted mine to be a little different. I decided to compile a bunch of layouts (almost 100) into a simple-staple bound book (so it would lay open as you use it)… the book is photos of layouts ONLY.. there are no step by step instructions, no long-winded commentary… it really is “just for looks”. The photos are up close and make it easy to study the tiniest details. I used pages from Janet Hopkins, my education coordinator as well as Emily Waters, (my right hand)… we have posted how-to info on my website in case there is something that you see and need to get a little more info on! (just click on “books” from the main page) for $9.99… it’s a great deal!

As part of the year-long class “A year to Remember” that i am teaching at Big Picture Scrapbooking, every student got a copy of the ‘just for looks’ book… here are a few of the  reviews that I rec’d in case you are wondering what people are thinking…

"just for looks" is a rare gem!  It isn’t often that an idea book can
educate and inspire with such simplicity. The large pictures and simple
format allow me to get an up-close and personal glimpse of the artists’
techniques, layouts and product use, and the style begs me to try the
methods used.”  Krisi Williams

“I have dozens of idea books on my shelves, but I’ve spent more time studying
THIS one than all the others put together. I’m looking for universal
principles and basic concepts of strong design that I can apply to any
layout and – it’s all here.” Nancy Boothe

"just for looks” is a refreshing approach to the typical idea book.  By
catering to the visual senses, this book becomes much more than a "how to".
Users are not limited by feeling they have to run out and purchase the exact
supplies used in the layout (since no specific list is provided), but are
given a visual aid to jump start their own creativity!  This book provides a
wonderful springboard to allow you to apply Heidi’s ideas to your own
layouts.”  Ashley Hansen

“Loving the eye candy! Not only is the book a visual buffet of amazing
layouts and ideas, it is really inspiring. The layouts (eye candy for people
with my type of sweet tooth) are finally large enough to see ALL the
details.” Laura McKinley

“It has so many quick and easy techniques, it’s simple to reproduce them in my own layouts…and I have.” Maria Hanson

“I received a ton of ideas and love having the book as a reference guide.
Heidi really used ideas that do not have to be explained word by word, the
instructions come out through her pages!!” Sara Brownell

“The scrapbooking artists featured show even the novice scrapbooker how to
use Heidi’s products with ease.  I have reached for this fabulous book time
and again!” Shannon Allor

“…it was so refreshing to pick up a book, flip through it and feel inspired and excited to sit down and scrap.” Talia Audenart

“Ladies, this is not your ordinary idea book!  No step-by-step instructions
here; nothing cookie-cutter at all.  Just page after glorious page of
layouts that allow the scrapbooker to deconstruct each component of the
layout.  This is a book that puts you up close and personal to the details,
so close you can spot the machine stitching, clearly see the ghost shapes
and letters, distinguish a sticker from a rub-on, and yes, actually even
read the hand-journaling.” Susan Lussier

“I was very intimidated on how to use some of Heidi’s products as they could
be considered "non-traditional"; however, your idea book has given me the
confidence to break out of my comfort zone and really bring a fun twist to
my scrapbook pages.  This book makes using paint, masks, and plastic shapes
look so easy!  Thank you!” Deene Souza

I’m in your Year to Remember class as well (I am behind :(…but hoping to get caught up once we have finished our move to our new home and I get my store opened. LOL, sounds great if you say it fast!

    I just ordered both kits with no problem and I am so excited to get them!
    BTW… If you are considering Heidi’s book, GET IT! I love it! It has solid design principles and large pictures, I refer to it every time I scrapbook!
    HEIDI, thank you for making these kis available to us for such an amazing deal. I don’t know how you do it all. You are amazing! 🙂

    Heidi you have done it again. I just dropped a bunch of money at my LSS this week, bought some more stuff from Joanns recently all on your things and now this. I had to have both kits and a couple of other goodies as well. I can’t wait to get these and play.
    I agree the idea book is great. I am in the Year to Remember class and it has been great.
