Big Dreams Portfolio

It's the weekend baby! How are you?! I'm sure you've heard about this fantastic new foil applicator machine, The Minc by Heidi Swapp? Here's a pic I grabbed from Pinterest to give you a little look see at what it is if you haven't;
This machine is absolutely awesome! A total game changer! I got the pleasure of demoing it at CHA and all of the people who tried it flipped! It was ooohhh's and ahhhh's the whole time, truly!
So I've been playing with this little toy here lately, and came up with a fun project you can make out of Heidi Swapp's new Wanderlust Portfolio that you can find at JoAnn's Stores! It looks like this when you buy it;
 (I flipped when I saw the gold & white striped flap, it's gorgeous! And the inside is white with gold foiled pin dots! Soooo adorable!) It's this super cute chipboard album that folds open that you can alter, and that's exactly what I did! I chose one of the 12x12 papers that goes along with the Minc products (mint green paper with Heidi's handwriting about dreams all over it, gorgeous!) , trimmed and wrapped it around the portfolio, adhered it, then embellished it! You can create a mini album for the inside or whatever you want! Here's how my cover turned out;

Within the Minc products, there are TONS of different embellishments you can use, such as flowers, tags, even chipboard pieces! I chose to use butterflies, I just think they go along with the "dream theme" so well!

Then I just layered them with a Minc confetti banner piece and some of the Wanderlust flowers ephemera that come in the Flea Market Pouch Kit;

There's 3 pouches that have different goodies inside, they are so stinkin cute! I love the vellum emvelopes ;)
I like to keep a little bowl of gold paper clips by me when I scrap, I just love the look of something just being slapped on and held in place with a paper clip lol! So cute.

Super fun right?! I can't wait to create my little album to go inside here!  I'm not sure how I'm going to do my closure yet, might do a little magnet inside the flap? The portfolio comes with a black elastic band that wraps around the flap, maybe I'll just spray paint it white that'd be kinda cool!
Don't forget to tag us up on Instagram using #hsWanderlust or #hsMinc  if you make one, we love to see what you create! Have a beautiful day and thank you so much for stopping in, it's always a pleasure! xoxo

  2. Wow super super cute - not so cute is that here in Northern Ireland we dont have 'Michael's, joAnne's and we dont even have the bigger UK stores Hobbycraft :-( And I just love Heidi Swapp's items that are so darn hard to get!!!

  3. Love what you did to the cover, wish I had your eye for design and then the confidence to just do it!!!!!

  4. really beautiful! I have read that you can use the laminator at the place of the minc machine... did you try?
