New Heidi Swapp Storyline Album and Deck of Days by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
By now there has been quite a bit of excitement about Heidi’s new Storyline Collection. It’s this fresh and clean and easy way to get our stories written down. Out of our cameras. Off of our hard drives. And into beautiful albums. Wanting to do something really special with this new 8 1/2×11 Kraft album, […]

Letterboard is here!

Heidi Swapp Letterboard Style by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
Being very visual, I love all the ways we can put our words up pretty and styled using all things Heidi Swapp. And now, Letterboard! Truly a fun way to put those positive images right there before our eyeballs. Because I don’t know about you, but I need all the reminders. Letterboard is here and […]

Magnolia Jane | Memory File

Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane Memory Files by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
The new Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane Collection has returned an oldie but a goodie…Memory Files. Back in the day, when Heidi first introduced the Memory File collections, I was hooked. I could not even get my hands on any of her new product and so I went to making them myself, until I could purchase. […]

Memory Dex Plus Creative Play

Heidi Swapp Memory Dex + Creative Play by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
Creative play is something I consider a necessity to the creative in general. As paper crafters we have the beautiful opportunity to play with a hobby that is not really expensive. We can make mistakes and happy accidents and explore the possibilities of paper, ink, and ephemera, and come away with a discovery, or an […]

Magnolia Jane | DIY Notebook

Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane DIY Notebook by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
They say the unexamined life is a life not worth living. And perhaps that is why I am inundated with journals of all sorts of size and purpose that I am constantly reflecting in. This may have been Socrates statement regarding death, but I think I shall turn it instead toward everyday life and how […]

Minc It Monday | Valentines Flower

Heidi Swapp Minc It Monday Valentines Day Flowers by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
What I love about Valentines beginning to make it’s appearance is all the soft colors that come back into our view. Here we are (well, some of us anyway) sitting in our cozy homes looking out to grey and white snowy landscapes. Wishing for color. Then along comes Valentines day with it’s soft pinks and […]

memory planner | intentional memory keeping

Heidi Swapp Memory Planner 2017 by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
Last year was another great year as found in my 2016 Memory Planner. I found myself faithful to the weeks almost completely. And why I wish there was 100% compliance in my planner, I’m not complaining. Because it was still a great capture of the nuances of everyday life. That’s saying something. I like to […]

Working Planner

Hard Working Heidi Swapp Memory Keeping Planner by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
Stephen Covey is quoted as saying, “The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” I appreciate his words and am always in the process of refining them in my own life. Hello, my name is Jamie Pate, and I am a planner girl. Yep. That’s me. Since early […]

New Year. New Wall.

New Year. New Heidi Swapp Gallery Wall Words Home Decor by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
With the new year, and all the Christmas decorations coming down, I am always in need of changing the place up a bit. During the Christmas season the main wall in my front room was decked out with Heidi Swapp Holiday Wall Word plus that fabulous poster from the Mouse Paper Scissors class. The Gallery […]

InstaLove Mini Album Gift Idea

Heidi Swapp InstaLove Gift Ideas by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
It would not be a normal Christmas for me if I was not giving away photo gifts of some sort or another. And as the week before Christmas is quickly coming to it’s fruition, I am still whipping up a few of those album gifts. Like this one here using the InstaLove Gold Stripe Album. […]
