Well, never being one to stick to the rules, I picked two.
Can't wait to share with you.

First up...
this ever so fabulous Mini Memory File Album...
did you catch that? An album...so if you know me...you know I HAD to pick that as I adore me a mini album...

heidi swapp ~ mini memory files album
This little gem is a little bit of everything. The main shape is a memory file, and throughout the album there are tabs and different patterns as well as differing shaped pages made of heavy card stock. It's just a great foundation for telling a great story.
Here is a peek at what I got to do with it..

It is pure sweetness. Can't wait to get my hands on more of these. oh the possibilities.

Do you want to see another product? New and never seen before?

heidi swapp ~ 8x8 color magic paper michaels

This is Color Magic 8x8 Paper Pack. Another brand new product. 
A little tough to see in an image like this...
so if you are anywhere near a Michaels, you just have to go and get some for your self.

Here's what I did with this...

These specialty papers are so perfect for cards. Just fold in half, color with Color Shine, and you have an easy card base. I went real soft with this one so the Gold Lame is very subtle here. But I love the effect on this confetti resist pattern.

I would love to know what of these products is going to be your favorite. You can look at all the offerings here.
I would love to know what you do with these fabulous items.
I would love, too, if you would tag me on instagram with any project created using this line. @jamiepate

Now I know you want to see more...
so there is a hop going on just for the occassion...
If you started here, you are going to want to go to Heidi's blog for the beginning.
