Letterboard Easter Vignette

Easter Dessert Table and Heidi Swapp Letterboard by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
Easter is one of my favorite times of year. The fact is, anytime we have a faith or national reason for all the family to stop and gather together for a day is a favorite time for me. I love having family and friends in my home. A chance to cook up a storm and […]

Letterboard | Positive Messages

Heidi Swapp Letterboard Positive Messages by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
“Positive emotion trump negative emotion every time.” This quote from the movie Inception holds much truth. If you are or have been the parent of teenagers, you know how true this can be. And while we can’t nor ever will be able to change people’s thinking, we can change our own thoughts. I know for […]

Storyline | My People

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, […]

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 […]
