About this class
Take a minute and think back to your most favorite memories…could be a vacation, a special celebration, a gathering with your favorite people, or even a season of good times that all string together into wonderful, meaningful moments. Of course, we treasure those good times with the people we love most… however, if we don’t take the time to capture the stories, and document the details, over time they are forgotten little by little. Even when something momentous happens, and we think we can never forget… the intricate memories fade.
This is where “STORYTELLERS” come to the rescue! These simple books, become priceless keepsakes as we fill them with photos, names, dates, places, and a little piece of our soul.
Welcome to Storytellers Vol.3: “Fresh Air”. In this class, you will see me using my newest “Fresh Air” collection along with my favorite stamps and basic supplies to create an entire book full of unique layered layouts, easily executed designs, and interactive page elements PERFECT for maximizing photos and capturing the details of every story. The book will invite you in, and take you back in time as you experience the story, again and again, every time you revisit its pages.
I will be working in my “Storyteller” book. You can replicate my exact designs by purchasing items from the Fresh Air collection - or simply use any supplies (paper, embellishments, stamps) that you have on hand! However, you will need the tools listed in the Supply list.
ALL LESSONS WILL BE LIVE APRIL 12TH @ 8AM EASTERN

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.

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.
