newport beach. remember always.

so i finally got around to getting a little bit more work done and accomplished on the memory file album i made to celebrate the memories i was able to experience and share back in january at newport beach.  i had SO much fun with this album creating it from a variety of old and NEW pieces from the Heidi Swapp collection that will be released to scrapbooking stores in! i just LOVE that no matter what type of project, the pieces from her collections are completely versatile, customizable and work with any and every type of theme!

i created the base of the album by using one of the blank chipboard memory files.  i then placed a 12 x 12 piece of color magic paper on top of it, trimming the access.  i then created the colour by mixing tropicana teal, mustard, and mint green.  i just sprayed the colors allowing them to blend.  what a beautiful background it created. i then added pieces of paper from the vintage chic collection to create the binding of the album.  if you look really can even see some NEW pieces that will be released in march...elements from Heidi Swapp's CLEAR POP collection.  note: they are amazing and you WILL want to begin hoarding these ASAP. they are so cool...and SO fun to add into memory file projects!

i had fun adding instaframes with a couple of my favorite instagrams, a disco star, some color magic chipboard alphas, color magic letterbox alphas, heidi swapp trimming and my little sand dollar charm that i purchased at a local gift shop.  i created the inside of my album by sewing together (down the spine) a vintage chic memory file, a regular plain manilla folder AND a brand new COLOR POP memory file.  

the color pop memory file is actually mint green and white...but when i added the black velvet color shine...BOOM! check out that cool right?!?

to create the backgrounds to these pages, i simply just sprayed some mint green and mustard color shine.  i love that even by itself, it creates the coolest backgrounds.  i adore the artistic flair to these pages.  note you can even see some more of the adorable CLEAR POP banner delights that i layered here. just LOVE those little babies!

one of my other FAVOURITE pieces to the CLEAR POP collection are the tabs.  I used the "loved" one here. they are the perfect embellishment to memory files and add such a fun interactive element.  i cannot wait to start using these on layouts, cards, and mini albums as well. SO many fun possibilities and they will work as amazing layering details.

i am still in the process of putting the finishing touches on this album, especially the journaling.  however i was SO excited to share i just could not contain myself. i hope you enjoyed this little sneak of some of the ways i used pieces of Heidi Swapp's NEW collections: Color Pop and Clear Pop.  they will be in scrapbooking stores come March...which is not that far away...and a perfect way to begin welcoming in Spring!

thanks for stopping by!
