Make Your Story Come to Life

6 Months ago by

Hi everyone! I’m Jamie Pate, a member of the Heidi Swapp Media Team. I’m thrilled to share our new collection and my love for storytelling with you today.

JP_HS_Storyline-1

I love simple. I love beautiful. I love simple stories told beautifully and ready and waiting in my albums for me to recall a moment in time. The new Storyline™ Collection by Heidi Swapp® is just the perfect mix of simple and beautiful wrapped up in a new line of albums, embellishments, and journaling kits.

Our stories are so very important. They are the evidence of life lived. Our lives. And we are the tellers of such story. Heidi Swapp’s new Storyline collection is the very essence of storytelling in a concise and meaningful way. Follow me as I tell about some of the pieces that are part of this collection, and then let me show you how very easy it is to tell your story.

This collection is simple and beautiful.

There are eight kits called Deck of Days included in this collection. The kit is full of die cut prompts, square and rectangle quote cards and photo corners.

Journaling Sticker Kits also make up the mix. Four different packs of themed journal spots, clear stickers, plus months and dates for the year.

The album in today’s post is an 8.5” x 11” kraft paper album with D-ring binding. When opened, a plastic storage envelope is at the start of the pages. Perfect for holding any of the Deck of Days or Journaling Sticker Kits so you can keep everything together.

The opening page is titled with a most welcoming statement to invite one to create beautiful memories.

For this page I am using a 4×6 and a 3×3 photo. Each of the pages included in the page protectors found in the album are pre-stamped requesting needed information.

Who, What, and Where is found at the bottom of the page.

At the top right is a space for adding in the date. These may seem like obvious entries, but very often we forget the basic information that goes with our story. I love how these prompts are stamped right on the page to remind me of the little things.

I want to show a step-by-step page creation so you can see how simple it is to tell your story with Storyline.

The Deck of Days comes with photo corners to make getting those photos on a page super easy.

Both photos were added to the Storyline page using the photo corners.

The journal spots included with the Journaling Sticker Kit are all backed with adhesive.

This journal spot was adhered to the Storyline page and will be filled in momentarily.

The Baby Deck of Days includes an assortment of die cuts with words, prompts and the perfect phrases to fit this baby page.

JP_HS_Storyline-17

The die cuts also have adhesive backing. Having all these die cut embellishments ready to stick down on a page only adds to the simplicity of documenting moments with Storyline.

JP_HS_Storyline-18

The Journaling Kit includes an entire sheet of clear word and phrase stickers. One of my favorite things I use is a Silhouette Spatula to pull the sticker off the sheet and adhere to the page.

JP_HS_Storyline-19

Loving how this page is coming together so easily.

JP_HS_Storyline-20

A gold arrow clear sticker from the Journaling Kit finishes this page off for me. Now I just need to tell the story on the journal spot and I am going to call this page good.

JP_HS_Storyline-21

After having filled in the who, what, where, and some date information at the top, this page is ready to slip into the page protector.

JP_HS_Storyline-22

A beautiful album. A sweet page. A mix of ready to use embellishments for many occasions. And that is what is at the heart of telling a story simply and beautifully with Storyline.

    Hi, I love this line and have started with the palm leaf covered book. This is such a quick and easy yet creative way for me and my friends to get our photos off the phones and into our books for the whole family to enjoy. My question is: When will 8.5 x 11 refill pages be available? I can’t find them on Michaels.com nor in the store and am needing them soon. Thank you!
