MEMORY FILES CARDS
Welcome to my very first e*ideabook! I am so excited to announce and introduce my newest collection: “hello today!” This whole collection started from a very real need that i had in my life for simple memory keeping! There is always so much going on – every day… and i found that the days were melting into weeks, and months. I wanted a solution that would be realistic, and do-able; some way to capture my everyday! In this issue i will be introducing you to the brand new memory planner, which will add to both your memory keeping as well as your creative process!

“Hello today” starts with a beautiful, versatile color palette of kraft paper, navy and pinks (and even a pop of yellow!) There is everything from 12 x 12 paper and memory files, stamps and inks, stencils and shine! And the possibilities are endless! This little e*ideabook will get you started! I have enlisted my amazing media team, as well as a couple very talented guest artists to inspire! Now, here is what’s super cool… We can link you directly to videos, tutorials, blog posts with more pics and info as well as downloadable instruction sheets! Here you will find the beautiful ‘eye candy’ and all the nitty gritty, how-to will only be a click away! So whether you are scrolling through on your phone waiting in the car pool lane, or with your tablet propped up in your creative space ready to work, you will have fabulous ideas, inspiration and instruction right at your finger tips! I love to see what you are making!! Tag your projects on facebook and instagram using hashtags #heidiswapphellotoday and #imakeprettystuff I hope you enjoy!

Do you ever just wonder where the time went? Or if you try to think about what you did last week, or last month, you just can’t quite put your ﬁnger on it? This totally happens to me! I call it “the blur complex”. There is so much going on all the time, every day, and I wanted to ﬁnd a way to STOP THE BLUR! It’s amazing what happens when you write just ONE THING each day. Write the highlight (or a low light), but something unique and memorable. As you do this, your memory will become more crisp, and you will be able to look back at the moments and remember! The planner offers prompts and places to write lists and plan, as well as document TODAY! Each month is a little bit different, but offers the same blank calendars and clear pocket pages for tucking in photos, invites and other things you want to hang on to. I have created lots of ‘pretty stuff’ to add to the planner to personalize! At the end of 365 days, you will be amazed that your year is no longer a blur… but you will be able to remember, and enjoy looking back on all that was accomplished and celebrated! Fill it with your everyday, ﬁll it with your LIFE!
