About this class
I love this book! YES, I love the people, the stories and memories inside… AND it’s unique construction makes it super easy to make, and really fun to look through too! Join Heidi Swapp for a series of step-by-step videos that walk you through the construction of this unique gatefold mini album. You will be amazed at how easy this album is to build, and once you have learned the HOW TO, you can create the same book concept in any size and shape! There is a lot of room to really fill this book with photos, and of course, if you would like to add more pages, it is super easy to do so! All you need are some basic paper crafting to supplies to create this book! Get some photos printed and let’s get to work:

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.
