minc it monday celebrates milestones

Heidi Swapp Minc

This week there is a special celebration happening with my family! My husband celebrates 20 years service with his employer! To me that is such an incredible milestone for  him, his accomplishments in his job has been many and  I wanted to create a special layout to let him know how proud I am of his success!

I based my layout around the gorgeously masculine Hawthorne  “Hayden” pattern paper, the fun Cutfile from Paige Evans and the brand new Minc cards available now at Joann stores! I began by cutting the cutfile out of white cardstock and then trimmed out pattern papers from the Hawthorn collection to back each letter of the cutfile. I then added the cutfile to the background  “Hayden” pattern paper with foam tape.

Let me share how the Minc elements of my layout came together.

I started with one of the OH Yeah Minc cards and some of the Blue and Silver Ombre foil which I then ran through my Minc Machine. I then trimmed the card to fit inside the star outline on the cutfile!

Next I used one of the Minc foam word stickers and the Mint green foil. There are two ways to apply the minc to the stickers. You can add the foil onto the sticker and run it through your minc on a zero, or just apply the foil by rubbing it on with your finger.

I adhered the Foam vibes sticker over the top of the cutfile for some extra dimension.

Next I added some of the new Storyline Boy Deck Of Days cards in and around the photo and Minc elements to add some fun to my layout.

I typed out my journaling and trimmed it into some strips and added it above and below the cutfile.

To complete my layout I added the numbers 20 using the Hawthorne stickers and some of the Storyline washi to add pops of blue to my layout. I love the different textures and elements. The foiled elements add a touch of sophistication juxtaposed agains the masculine colors and patterns in the Hawthorne collection.

I am super proud of all the accomplishments my husband has achieved in his job. I hope my layout lets him know just how proud I feel!
