How many times have you run out of a certain letter on your sticker sheet while trying to spell a word on a card, scrapbook page, or in your memory planner? You are then left trying to think of a different word to spell, or maybe altering the letter to try to make it work. Alas, it always seems like there are never enough letters! In this class I am going to teach you how to use your printer and your digital cutting machine to create your very own alphabets, ending the shortage once and for all! Now, even when it’s midnight and you need an “S”… you can create one! It’s like spinning gold!To get you started on your letter making journey, this class includes three .SVG alphabets, six colored background .PDFs in all of my most used colors and a bonus word art .SVG.PLEASE NOTE : You will need a digital cutting machine for this class.

Memory Planners are my very favorite way to make sure that I remember what happened in my life, and the life of my family! I have to confess, I think the reason I am so passionate about memory keeping is that I have the WORST memory! Sometimes I can’t even remember what I did yesterday! The truth is that our lives are moving faster than ever before, and our brains can easily become overloaded. That doesn’t mean that we don’t have the memories stored, we do! It just means that it’s trickier to access our memories, making it possible to forget. That’s where the “Memory Planner” comes in! This calendar-based, photo + journaling hybrid is almost like the cliff notes of your daily life! As you record little details and snippets of your days, they become the doorways to your memories and the stories of your everyday!In this free class, I cover the basics of Memory Planning and give you the tips you need to get started. Join me for my monthly subscription class, Stop the Blur, to get monthly inspiration, "try this" ideas and a peek into my own Memory Planning process!Use #STOPTHEBLUR and tag me (@heidiswapp) in your posts on Instagram.
