Disclosure: This post is part of a campaign with American Crafts/Heidi Swapp, but all my opinions are my own. I was provided product and compensation. #makeprettystuff 

It's easy to makeprettystuff when you are working with pretty stuff! I just found out that JoAnn stores has an exclusive line of Heidi Swapp  memory keeping goodies and they are oh so delicious!  It's pretty cool that now we can just pop on over to our local JoAnn's (literally, around the corner) and pick up these easy to use, beautiful building blocks to create great display pieces for gifts, our homes, or to use in traditional scrapbooking.

Heidi Swapp - Wood Clipboard Stand for JoAnn by Jennifer Priest - 1

I used the Wood Clipboard Stand from Heidi Swapp's exclusive line with JoAnn stores to create a vertical scrapbook album. I was going to use it as a gift but my 15 year old daughter has already claimed it to put photos of her friends in.

She has a good point – this Wood Clipboard Stand is perfect for high school and college kids who want a cool way to display lots of photos in a small space and not be cheesy rolling out their big old 12×12 scrapbook albums for their friends to look at.

I also really appreciate the variety of finishes and price points these products are available in – it's easy to create affordable, customized projects with this line.

Check out how I made this fun clipboard stand in this handy dandy video (Firefox users, please click this link if you have trouble viewing the video):


As a bonus, I made this DIY Hipster “Print” to frame or hang on the wall. I used the “The Good Life” Die Cut from the Heidi Swapp Die Cut Tags as a stencil for the clipboard album. Then, after the paint dried on it, I backed it with some paper from the Heidi Swapp 6×8 Paper Pad in a complimentary pattern and color. Frame it, hang it from a banner, put it on your bulletin board … it got the approval from the teenager: “I'd hang that on my wall”. YES.

Any of these Die Cut Tags can be used as stencils or framed as “prints” – and then you can use them in your papercrafts when you're done using them as home decor! 

Check out Heidi Swapp at your local JoAnn stores – I know you'll be inspired to #makeprettystuff!
