About Heidi

Heidi’s love of papercrafting began over 10 years ago creating scrapbooks for birthdays and fun events. Then, one day, she picked up a cardmaking magazine and fell in love with all the creative options stamps and dies had to offer. She finds inspiration for her cards in all kinds of interesting places.

Donuts…..always a welcome surprise for breakfast!  This is especially true with school starting soon and crazy mornings where a sit down breakfast is not in the cards.  For today’s project, I used the Sizzix—Jen Long Donut Card Fold Along Die to create a fun card to attach to some mini donut holes for a quick out- the- door snack.  Add a happy and encouraging message, and your kids will start their day on a positive note.

A Masculine Birthday Card

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

As a card maker, I am drawn to bright, cheerful colors.  Mostly white card bases with pops of pinks, mint and soft yellows.  There are times though, when I need to make a masculine-style card.  This is where the richer colors come in with some darker accents.  For today’s project, I’m using a background die from Avery Elle called Waves for a quick and easy masculine birthday card.  Balloons from Avery Elle’s Balloons stamp set are heat embossed with rich colors that complement the neutral background.

Summer Mini Book

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

Summer is here and it’s time to make some memories!  What better way to keep track of all your pictures than in a mini book?  I was inspired by this gorgeous scrapbook kit from Carta Bella called Summer Splash and decided to create a quick and easy book that would be perfect for documenting summer adventures with pictures and journaling.  I kept it easy by using a spiral bound, blank keepsake book from Paper Accents along with the kit and other embellishments from the Summer Splash collection.  The colors are so bright and fun, I couldn’t wait to put this book together!
