I’m so excited about the Heidi Holiday Social Media Event. Heidi is always one for connection. Even in a cyber way it’s possible to connect online and that’s a huge part of what this event is all about. Check out yesterday’s blog post HERE for additional details that will take us through the month with giveaways, free downloads and a photo scavenger hunt.
This new Photo Book Kit is from the Handmade by Heidi Gift Kits available at JOANN Stores. It’s part of the supply list that you can use to play along with Heidi’s Social Media Event.
I will be using this Photo Book to hold the photos from this year’s scavenger hunt. I love that there are no numbers to this photo list. Watching for these photos through out the month will be part of the joy and fun of adding to this photo album.
I fell in love with the phone wallpaper download that was made available yesterday. Heidi’s hand lettering is to be adored. It only adds to the festive feel of my photo album. On the printed version seen above I just opened the ‘wallpaper’ in Photoshop Elements. Then re-sized the download to 3×5-inches at 300 resolution. Then I printed it on smooth white cardstock. This can now be trimmed out and used as a gift tag, a card embellishment, or even in one’s memory planner.
However. I wanted to change it up and use it outside the box a little. I did this by ‘filling in’ the lettering with black. And ‘erasing’ the color. The download was then sized even smaller to about 2-inches wide. Several were then printed on smooth white cardstock via my laser printer. Now they are ready to run through the Minc Machine.
The first spread in my Photo Book Kit was inspired by the photo prompt ‘Photo with Santa’. This layout includes a photo of my kiddos with their Grandpa playing ‘Santa’. I added in the foiled Be Merry and Bright card along with some of the filler cards that are included with the kit. I’m gonna love adding all these very special photos to the Photo Book Kit throughout the month.
Of course one can actually use the phone wall paper on their phone. But don’t stop there! These downloads print out beautifully and can bring holiday cheer to many of your paper craft creations.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The Heidi Swapp Social Media Event is a great way to look for the festive, fun and merry. The Photo Book Kit is just one way to create memories that will outlast this month and season.
