If you follow me on Instagram, you may just remember way back in March when I traveled across the state to meet Amy Tangerine and Heidi Swapp?
The event was put on by Spotlight Australia to help celebrate their national craft month, and I must say to my mind it was an epic success. I had so much fun at these events, I meet new friends and I got to play with products I would not normally even consider buying. I also got to meet scrapbook royalty and I am not just talking about Heidi Swapp and Amy Tangerine.
In the scheme of things I have not been in the scrapbooking world too long. In fact just over two and a half years now, but in my time I have come to know some really amazing Aussies such as Natalie Elphinstone, Kim Jeffress and Leeann Pearce. All three are flat out superstars in my eyes and I was beside myself excited meet them in person. (Also, I’m not going to lie, I REALLY wanted to have a hold of baby Judah 🙂 It was SO good to meet these amazing women in person and as we continued to talk after the event, we decided to hold our own blog hop!
The idea was pretty simple. We would all scrap a photos taken from the event, but to make things a little more fun for our readers we decided to include a giveaway. Not just any giveaway, a giveaway of epic proportions! But to do that you need a pretty awesome sponsor, enter: SPOTLIGHT! First, before we go in to details about that let me show you my page.
Ironically, this might just go down in history as the quickest and most refined page I have ever done. I don’t usually use pattern paper for the background of pages, but this Heidi Swapp paper is my all time favourite. I’ve been hoarding like a kid hoards halloween candy. I felt deep down though, that it was time to let go. I mean if you can’t use it for a page that is ABOUT Heidi Swapp when can you use it?
I used the grid theme that was already going on in the pattern paper to build my page. I cut my title (with the silhouette) and mounted it to gold glitter paper with pop dots to give it some demention. kept the embellishments really simple. I didn’t want to detract from my photos.
All it took was a few gold glitter Heidi Swapp sentiment stickers and I was happy. Well almost. I tried to type a tag with the days highlights but it just didn’t fit. In fact by the time I finished journaling I had 600 words… oops. In times like these I all was attach it to the back of the page, which works out really well because the back is really cute bows!
Alright, alright now for the part you have all been waiting for – The Giveaway.
Spotlight have been kind enough to donate $100 dollars worth of products to each of the four blogs to give away as we see fit. The rules and prizes will vary from each blog to blog so make sure you read each blog post carefully.
