It’s Tuesday Morning~ Heidi Swapp Heart Album

Do you still have a Heidi Swapp mini album lying around? I am talking about the cute wood albums with either a heart or star cut out in the center. Well Tuesday Morning stores have a few in stock and I wanted to put one together to give you a few ideas.

First of all you can paint it, cover it with washi tape, spray it, stain it, cover it with paper or glitter, or leave it naked.. tons of easy ideas.


My finished album, on display at my Tuesday Morning.


I painted mine pool blue and added a few gold paint mini dots. I then added a few embellishments to the cover and ribbon to one ring.


The before and after pictures of the Heidi Swapp wood cover mini albums.



Use your favorite scrapbook paper to create new pages inside. I used random embellishments from my stash to dress it up.




Cut some pages in half to create different size pages. I also used Heidi Swap photo flip books to make room for even more photos.



Tuesday Morning also sells stickers, tags, bling, and washi tape. Fill your book with all your favorite things.



Using these photo frames makes it easy to add photos later on.



Just a side view of my new album.


I took out the white pages that came inside the book and used left over scrapbook paper. I created pockets and new pages. This is the perfect book for adding left over materials to. If you have random goodies in your stash, throw them in this book. I used up tons of misc. embellishments, washi tape, journal cards, stickers, bling, and more. I didn’t over load the album with tons of layers since I want to add photos then add more goodies. If you live near a Tuesday Morning call to see if they have any of these books left. They had the solid wood albums, the heart & star albums at my location. This is also a great album to stock up on for Valentines day!

I bet you can think of many ways to decorate your album.

It’s Tuesday Morning! This & That

Ribbon, Glitter, & Burlap, oh my!

Have you been to Tuesday Morning lately?   If not it’s time to restock your craft room with the essentials.

I used so much of their glitter and ribbon over the Holidays.  I made several glitter filled ornaments, glitter snowflakes, and glitter trees.  You can get glitter paper or containers of glitter.  I prefer the fine glitter for my projects but they have a variety of glitter.

They also have a huge selection of ribbon.  Individual rolls were found in the Christmas area however you can find bulk bags from American Crafts in the scrapbooking department. They also have mini burlap bows which can complete any project.


Ribbon out of the bag & Mini Burlap Bows



Tuesday Morning has a variety of these bulk bags of ribbon or twine.



I used their green & silver glitter paper to create some Holiday Decorations for school.



This glitter pack is WOW! I mixed all of mine together.



This is a new product for Tuesday Morning. DIY burlap shapes and banners.



I used some of the ribbon to create these mini ribbon tree ornaments.


The paper craft supplies you find at Tuesday Morning is all brand new products with a discounted price. Tuesday Morning carries American Crafts, Heidi Swapp, Amy Tangerine, Tim Holtz, 7 Gypsies, Graphic 45, Maggie Holmes, Dear Lizzy, We R Memory Keepers, Basic Grey, among many other brands. Yes the product is usually a year or two older but you can find many of your favorite products. That’s why I find it a great place to restock on items I love to create with.

If you are near a Tuesday Morning stop in.

Scrap It Girl is 7 years old~Giveaway Time!


7 years later and here I am. I am still teaching paper craft classes every single week.. to adults and kids. I am still designing classes, kits, and working with other companies. Nothing has really changed in the 7 years except for my constant change to my studio, new chairs, new paint, new carpet, and new people.  This year however I am bringing back my etsy shop… too many of my non local friends have asked me over the years to bring back my on-line shop.. so I will try to start listing things by February. Another change is that I plan to offer way more altered art and home décor classes. Last year they were a huge hit so look for more classes.  If you want to attend any of my classes, send me an email so you can get my schedule.

In celebration of my 7th year, I am doing a giveaway.

I put together this little assortment of goodies for one of my lucky crafty friends.. just follow the directions to get in on the giveaway, which ends on the 7th!


a Rafflecopter giveaway

Happy New Year.. Hope to see you in 2015
