mash-up blog hop
Welcome to our first Heidi Swapp Mash-Up Blog Hop!
The definition of a Mash-Up (according to the Urban Dictionary) is, "v. To take elements of two or more pre-existing pieces of music and combine them to make a new song. n. A song comprised of elements of two or more..."
A Heidi Swapp Mash-Up is taking elements from two or more collections and to combine them to make something fabulous! We have asked each media team member to name two Heidi Swapp products and compile a Mash-Up List. Then, each team member took the full list and used that (and more!) to create their first Mash-Up project!
Here is the Mash-Up List:
At least 1 Day Glow Photo Corner
Color Magic Paper
Note Card (either Vintage Chic or Color Magic Notes)
Color Magic Chipboard Alphas
At least 2 Pattern Papers from Different Heidi Swapp Collections
Neon Glow Tape
Handwriting - either your own or Heidi's digital words
Here is my little take on the project...
I chose to do a traditional layout but with several twists.
Can you find my mash up products?
The DayGlow photo corner is a used on the upper right corner of the MiniInstaFrame.
The Sentiment Sticker was used to celebrate the glory of pink.
A strip of the chevron ColorMagic paper was used as a layering piece.
Two of the VintageChic Notes were used: one as a layer, and another was used as a little surprise interactive piece. (Details to come...hang on).
I used hearts from the Black&White BuzzWords. Since I had a lot of words already on this project, I did not want to muddle it with another word, so I opted for a heart embellishment instead.
Used the ChipboardAlphas with Tinsel ColorShine to spell the "BE".
The two patterns included SugarChic Drama and the VintageChic Textbook diagonal side.
The DayGlow tape is front and center.
And I used mini staples to attach the DigiWord "awesome' that I also welded to an arrow.
A couple of things makes this layout a little different than most.
First, I started off with a metal scalloped desk top stand in pink that I found at my local craft store. It is perfect to go in my daughter's newly decorated room of grey, pink, and animal print. I knew when I found this it would be a great piece to have in her room to switch layouts in and out of. Notice the magnet strips on the back of my layout? This let's the papers and photo 'stick' to her stand yet we can always change it when the mood hits. Thinking I will be doing this for some Christmas presents this year.
Another little surprise is the photo. I sewed a tab to the picture that fits into the Mini InstaFrame, and we can take that out and replace with another if we wanna. Don't you love choices?
And my last little surprise is that a VintageChic Note is tucked into the layers in a pocket I created while adding patterned paper and embellishments. I added a quote to this tag to remind my daughter of the need to be awesome everyday...and how to go about that.
What a fun project! I love how it all came together and how it allowed for some fun interactive aspects to add to it's uniqueness.
