Product Matchup: Canvas Corp Papers + Heidi Swapp Memory Planner!

Planners are so popular right now and they are a great way to stay organized!  Our CCB Challenge this month is Getting Organized and what better way to do it than in your own personal style?  You can enter your planner, agenda or calendar to win a big box of craft goodies…here is all the info – August Challenge “Do the Planning”

Marie shares with us how she used Canvas Corp papers to create a fun pocket page layout to go inside her Heidi Swapp planner. We love how our patterns look so bright and fun alongside some gold embossing and Heidi Swapp embellishments! 

From college students to stay-at-home-parents, a planner can be the perfect place to write down your to-do lists and appointments. Heidi Swapp’s Memory Planners combine the practicality of organizing your life with the fun element of documenting and remembering the every day! There is something for everyone with these planners- organization, scrapbooking, journaling, pocket pages, embellishments, and even mixed media! It can be whatever you make it!

THE PROCESS:

I am fairly new to pocket pages- this is only the second one I have done! I have always been drawn to the look of a pocket page layout so I was excited to try this! I kept it simple by choosing only a few colors- black, white, pink, and gold. Choosing a color scheme will always make your project look pulled together even if you are using different products from different brands.

I went ahead and cut my paper down into 2×2 squares so they will easily slip into the pockets. I arranged the papers inside the pockets and then moved on to embellishing. I did some stamping and embossing on the top left pocket, and then added a little pink color to the corner of that square with some Spun Sugar Distress Ink.

I then stamped and embossed a butterfly and some arrows in gold. These I adhered to the front of my pocket pages. I think embellishing the outside of your pockets just adds another fun unexpected element to your layout!

For the bottom left square, I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and brushed on some more Spun Sugar Distress ink to create a partial image of a heart. Over that, I stamped a Heidi Swapp stamp that says, “With All My Heart”. The whole stamp didn’t fit on the square, but I really love the look of having it partially showing!

I cut down my photo to a 2×2 square then slipped it into the pocket with a pink glittery Heidi Swapp frame. I know it’s always been my husband’s deep desire to be framed in pink glitter, so I did that just for him!

The bottom right square is some ribbon stripe paper that I adhered a stamped and embossed flower to. The last square next to the photo is some paper from 7 Gypsies. I also adhered a tiny banner to the front of this square with some glitter paper that I die cut.

That pretty much finished my pocket page layout! All that was left for me to do was to clip this page into place in my planner. I can’t wait to get busy doing another pocket page! I love how quickly they can come together and since you don’t need a lot of paper, you can even use up some of those scraps you’ve been hoarding!

We hope this has given you some inspiration to dig through those scraps and see what you can create! Do you have a planner that you like to document and decorate in? We’d love to see! Tag us on any of our social media sites and we will find you!
