The One with the MINC "Summer" Layout

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Here is how my newest Heidi Swapp MINC layout with a Summer theme came together! First, I picked out the 6" "SUMMER" toner-printed die cut letters and a rainbow of foils.
Note: I turned a "W" upside down for a second "M".

Description: I really love large title backgrounds and the word "SUMMER" fits perfectly in a 3x2 grid on a 12x12 background.

Journaling says: As soon as we got to Krakow, Poland we wanted to hit the ground running, but Mother Nature had other plans in store: torrential downpour! So instead we watched the kids jump in puddles and enjoy getting wet in the hot rain.

How to: Foil "SUMMER" letters in a rainbow of colors using a Heidi Swapp MINC machine. Layer the letters onto a white cardstock background then stitch through them to emphasize each letter. Adhere a pair of photos along with foiled die cuts and a few other Heidi Swapp embellishments on the layout. Journal inside the "R" with a black pen.

Supplies: Foiling machine, toner printed letter die cuts: Heidi Swapp MINC; Tag, stickers, die cuts, chipboard frame: Heidi Swapp; Cardstock, penadhesive: American Crafts; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark

The MINC machine and accessories are available at Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann, local stores, and online shops such as Studio Calico. I've seen people try out other machines to foil projects, but the MINC is the simplest, most consistent, and has the best results, honest to goodness :)
