About this class
We need all the GOOD VIBES we can get! Join Heidi Swapp as she teaches you how to create two unique and clever mini-books using the same basic steps! You won’t believe how easy it is to start with just paper and chipboard to create albums with cascading pages, interesting decorative pieces, and layered elements. While these books have a very simple approach to binding the pages, the wow factor is off the charts as she takes what you learn from your first mini book and DOUBLES it by showing you how to create a double-decker set of pages! Have fun re-creating these projects in different sizes, with different papers over and over!
Check below to purchase the Good Vibes Class kit (it contains all of the papers and embellishments you need to finish both books!) and the Old School stamps that I use in the class!
Use the #HSGoodVibesOnly and tag @heidiswapp in your posts on Instagram so I can see your creations!

About Heidi Swapp

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.
