Heidi Swapp

I like to make pretty stuff!  I consider myself a “Memory Keeper” - a Story Teller!  I love looking back at photos and feeling the love and good times over and over!

I love to plan fun events and activities that will become happy memories to enjoy forever!

I feel so blessed to have a job that I just love!  I am passionate about what I do and love those I get to work with!  I have lots of different roles as “Creative Director” for the Heidi Swapp brand  I’m responsible for new ideas, marketing, video and content director, product testing and innovating.  First and foremost, I get to be me!  My best ideas come from real life circumstances.  I love working with American Crafts and my amazing creative team.  They pretty much rock!

My studio is my happy place.  I love losing track of time and making a huge mess in my creative space.  Whether I’m creating thank you cards, memory albums, home décor or party invitations, I am the happiest when I am making pretty stuff for the people I love the most.

Hello, I'm Terhi Koskinen from Finland. Scrapbooking is more than a hobby for me, it's a lifestyle and passion - it starts with grabbing a photo and ends when I get my creation where I wanted. And then it starts again. Surrounding myself with pretty things and my dear family is how I want to live my life.

My paper crafts are filled layers, straight lines, and techniques I want to try out. I like creating detailed scrapbook layouts and mini albums with a small twist of mixed media. Controlled chaos, I've heard!

I get my inspiration from pictures I take during the days, in another words from my everyday life: I'm a mother for two beautiful daughters, wife for my handsome husband and studious project coordinator in my day time job. In addition to crafting, I horse-ride, so that's one more topic to my creations.

As I love being surrounded by people. teaching scrapbooking has grown to one of my biggest passions, and I've been lucky enough to teach both online and live - just hoping this dream continues in the future too.

Please take a visit to my blog and connect with me at InstagramYoutube and Facebook. I'm looking forward to visit New Zealand, spreading my style and tips to you all and seeing totally other side of the world! I might bring some snow and reindeers as a souvenirs!
