Hello and welcome to another amazing week on the SCT blog! Thank you for stopping by. We have guest designer Mari Clarke here today with another installment in her Tried, Trendy & True series. Let’s get this Monday started 🙂


One of my favorite trends from the last few years is the Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters system.

Supplies | Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters planner insert; American Crafts & Heidi Swapp Carefree collection: 8×6 paper pad, ephemera, tags, stickers, washi tape; Heidi Swapp stamps: Honey and Spice alphabet, Hope; Distress Oxides: Rusty Hinge, Salvaged Patina; Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink; Adhesives: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam adhesive; Therm O Web & Gina K Designs tape runner, Plus Glue Tape Vellum; Other: vellum

I created a double-page spread to inspire you to use a planner-style format to document your stories. I love how many photos I can place on these pages and all of the stories I can tell! This is a trend for me that has become a true practice!

In my video, you will see how I document using eight different photos to tell stories from April and May.

I hope you will give this trendy, new format a try, to see if it works for you, too! Thank you for joining me today!
