My Take on Heidi Swapp’s “Memory Planner”

First of all let me say I love all of Heidi Swapp’s products– except I do have a slight issue with one particular product.she has recently created. Her glammed up really eye catching memory planner is quite frankly simply another planner. When I heard of the brillant idea of a planner to plan memories ( as the title says) I was thrilled! Finally a place to record layouts, cards, art journlaing, mixed media and faith art! For example when I hear the title of her product “Heidi Swapp Memory Planner” I immedialty think of project pages, calendar pages, supply lists, and the like. Now hold up dont get me wrong — I actually am a fan of her “memory” planner its so pretty and gold!

So– I would just really like it if the swapp would make a product as the product name says  it is does that make sense? So  whats next to say I know how about how I have been scrapbooking for over 16 years and would die at the sheer idea of being involved in making or creating a real deal memory planner. A little back history for a moment – I use a moleskine black art journal to keep all my ideas in and it is full I mean brimming with ideas of layouts, cards, projects and such. Arent we as scrappers ready for a legitimate memory planner I dont know about you but I am.

Now here comes the corny part– if anyone reading this has the desire to partner with me in creating a real deal memory planner please leave a comment and i will happlily respond.

Thanks for reading – and btw if any of you are looking for a typical nice planner go with heidi swapp she makes great stuff again this is just my opinion and I am in no way in contact with heidi swapp. god bless.


D.I .Y Paper Clips


  • Large or Jumbo Paper Clips
  • Stickers (larger ones)
  • Washi Tape
  • Die Cuts of butterflies or framelits smaller ones
  • hot glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks


First get that glue gun heating up ! When using the stickers take two of similar kinds and sandwich them and hot glue inside.

When your ready to move on to the washi tape start with the not clipping end and slide your tape from the in and out to form a little flag if desired cut a little triangle to form a banner looking end.

For the framelits proceed as if they were stickers and again sandwich them together do the very same with the butterflies -(oh and for extra color I like to die cut white butterfiles or punch then spray mist with ink like dylusions inks ) the rest is up to you!!!

Thanks for reading and god bless.
