About this class
The tradition continues this year with a Christmas inspired “Storyteller” book! Using my newest “Hometown Holiday” collection, I have created a 10 lesson journey through capturing memories, telling stories and documenting the most treasured time of the year…. December. The Holiday season. Christmas Joy. We will be working in the newest Storyteller book, and creating fun and inspiring interactive elements such as … mini envelope spread; a month-at a glance December captured calendar; cascading, tabbed pages; layered, delicate cover art and a photo collage window!

About Heidi Swapp
Heidi Swapp is a storyteller, craft and decor designer, creative instructor, author, and speaker who firmly believes life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful. Her favorite job is that of wife and mother to five children, ranging in age from young adults to elementary school. She started connecting with audiences worldwide in 2000 through scrapbooking magazines and events, later sharing her passion for memory keeping through blogging, social media, and her signature line of creative products. Her large online audience rallied around the Swapp family when their oldest son, Cory, took his life in 2015 at age 16. Throughout this unbearable ordeal, Heidi has continued to share and connect, becoming an advocate for suicide prevention through community events and the Light the Fight podcast. Heidi’s work can be found on heidiswapp.com, @heidiswapp on Instagram, and facebook.com/heidiswapp.
