Heidi Swapp - November Mash-Up Blog HopWednesday, November 28, 2012
Welcome to our first Heidi Swapp Mash-Up Blog Hop! To start, go check out Heidi's blog today!
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 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
For my Mash-Up project I created this "Zinger" layout. Come on, tell me I wasn't the only one disappointed about Hostess closing their doors this month. You see, I just had my first Zinger a couple of months ago. Heidi kept on mentioning in her videos how much she loved Vanilla Zingers and one weekend I saw them at the store and grabbed a box.
Now, I was there for "weekend snacks" and bananas for the little man. You wouldn't believe how many laughs there were in line at my Zingers, chips, bean dip, and banana groceries. Even the cashier had to make a crack at me. By the time I got home, I was ready to dive into those bad boys. They were good. My husband, Dave, had his first that weekend and said they tasted like stale Twinkies. Either way, by the end of the weekend I vowed to never buy a box again because I ate the whole thing in two days and gained two pounds!
So, I was quite surprised when my sister gave me my birthday gifts. Inside the gift bag was one Chocolate Zinger. Kind of glad I only got one, but I really do want to know what happened to the rest of the box. My sister said that she respects Heidi and everything but Chocolate Zingers are way better than Vanilla ones. It was a good laugh. I had no idea that that afternoon would be the last time I ever ate a Hostess treat. If I knew, maybe, just maybe the box would have lasted longer. Just maybe...
I added Pink Paislee rubons to my layout so that my only Day Glow Photo Corner left (in green) would match my layout. lol...
I cut a Banner Delight made from Color Magic Paper into a little flag. Cute?!?
Bring on the staples! ;) I also added more rubons to the bottom left corner so that the Sentiment Sticker would look like one too!
