Heidi Swapp tells us her crafting secrets!

Today we welcome back Heidi Swapp to Artfull Crafts Centre Stage.
 Last week Heidi gave us some insight into who she is and her crafting addiction. Today she shares with us some of her favourite tools and how she likes to interact with technology. Thanks Heidi for answering our questions!

The stage life is full of thrills and spills. Share with us your favourite project and describe your worst crafting disaster.

MY WORST PROJECT??? Well, you will never see or hear from them! 

My most favorite project is my #40th bday trip to New York! (Click here to see a whole blog post about that trip). Here are a few photos of the Memory File I created from the trip:

What tools and props do you always rely on? 
My most favorite project(s) are those that involve the CINCH machine! Here I am featured on My Craft Channel with some alternative binding techniques.

I love that machine … and then combine the magic of Memory Files. (Click here to see the Memory Files system in action).

I also love to use my: Sewing machine*colorshine*marathon runner* epiphanycraft tools*silhouette 

What’s your current favourite technique or embellishment that every project simply MUST include? 
I am addicted to my Xyron Creative Station! It’s such a cheaper way to get stuff sticky! But man, i love it – especially for use with all my Ephemera!!  (Click here to order from Artfull Crafts)

How do you use Social Media and Technology to keep your audience engaged? I LOVE instagram!  Because I just love to connect, and hear back from my online fans and friends! I just love how quick and easy it is to share my ideas!  I want to use Pinterest MORE! I love learning more and more about social media!  Head to the Heidi Swapp Facebook Page and become a fan.

Thanks Heidi! We look forward to hearing more from you next week. 

Here are a few projects that Heidi has created with her new Range - Believe. It's arrived instore and is popular! Keep popping back to find out more about Heidi over the next month.

Through the week there will be some fun extra Facebook Competitions and prizes kindly donated by Heidi Swapp and Artfull Crafts. Make sure you don't miss out!
