Hello everyone.  Today I am excited to share a really fun and easy way to incorporate even MORE photos into your Heidi Swapp Memory Planner.  If you are anything like me, then you know that photos really are one of the best parts.  I know for my Memory Planner, my photos are what make my planner come alive.  I can never add enough photos onto my pages, so today I am wanting to share with you just another way you can do that.

These are the brand new MINC Lamination dividers from Heidi Swapp.  I adore them.  They come 6 in a package, along with laminating folders.  What is neat about these folders is that they can also be customized using the MINC as they are printed with the specialty toner ink that will work with the heat reactive MINC foils.  Awesome, right?!?

So…today I want to share how we can use these lamination dividers in our Memory Planner to create a photo collage that is not only decorative…but durable!

Place inside the MINC machine, using the designated heat setting listed on the back of the divider package.  You can find this number on the top right hand corner.  It is heat setting 2.

Voila!  Really…it is just that easy!  I love using the lamination sheets and dividers in this way.  Not only does it add extra “real estate” in providing me even more opportunity to document my memories…but they are also protected and extra durable now that they are laminated.  Total win win.
