Heidi Swapp Design Challenge...my Project

By Midwesterngirl @MidwesternGirl5
Remember the other day when I told you about this amazing Design Challenge that I was chosen for?

Well, today is my day to show you my project! Woo hoo!
Before I show you what I did for the challenge, let me give you quick recap...
Each of 3 designers (Holly Simoni, Ranjini Malhotra & I) were sent a huge box of products from Heidi Swapp, Canvas Corp, 7Gypsies & Tattered Angels. We were asked to create one project using Heidi's Memory Files (the one I'm showing you here today) and one project of the designer's choice (featured today on Heidi's blog...yay!!!).
Heidi posted her projects on her blog on Monday and Holly's & Ranjini's projects were featured by Heidi on Tuesday and Thursday. Let me tell you...I was so inspired by all of them. It's really quite amazing how different people can take the same set of tools and create such different projects. It's just so cool.
As soon as I saw the items that were included in my product boxes I knew just wanted to do. As you may or may not already know, I am a list maker. I make lists for everything...everything. So, when I saw Heidi's Memory Files and all of the envelopes and canvas & Glimmer Mist, I decided I must make a way to organize our summer. So, here it is...our family's Summer File...

Heidi's Memory Files are set to be the biggest thing to happen to scrapbooking since cardstock...truly. They can be used for anything, and the Color Magic Memory Files can even be colored to suite your tastes using ink, paint, chalk, mists, whatever! Awesome!
So here's what I did...I used one Memory File as the front and back of our binder. I misted & painted the stripes of the folder, added some deco tape and some of Heidi's Color Magic Banner Delights as well as a beautiful burlap Canvas Corp flower. I am so digging these colors...

Here's what I did on the inside...

On the inside front cover, I added some more of Heidi's banners and 3 7Gypsies large envelopes. Each of the kids has his or her own envelope, stuffed with his or her individual list of summer wishes.

I cut a second Memory File down a bit and sewed it into the middle of the first folder. Then I sewed up the bottom and side of the file to create a pocket for us to stuff with ideas and memories.

On the back side of the pocket, I attached a large Canvas Corp envelope (awesome!) that can be written on, filled with photos, whatever we want! So fun!

I can't wait to fill up this folder with notes, ticket stubs, photos, menus, any- & everything we experience this summer...
And here's a little sneak peek of my designer's choice project, featured on Heidi's blog today...

I can't tell you just how much fun I had with this challenge...and I'm so grateful I got the chance to play with so many absolutely fantastic products. Thank you so much to Heidi Swapp, Canvas Corp, 7Gypsies & Tattered Angels!
