Heart and Soul: Journal & ATC (as in Craft Stamper)

I have neglected this Blog and it is sad because I adored Blogging and the connections made through Blogging was so important in my creative life.  I will try, now and again, to share some past projects which for whatever reason, have been neglected by me to share there, on Instagram and FB.  I am finding, more and more, Instagram is more accessible for me but want to try to keep my Blog going, if possible.
Anyway, today I have a project which appeared in the February issue of Craft Stamper.  With a heart theme set, I turned to the beautiful hearts from That’s Crafty (available in various sizes whether in MDF or white/greyboard) and I have to say a stamp which I never tire of inking up from Catherine Moore’s Character Constructions stamps.
I seem to have lost several photos I took at the time, before sending to Craft Stamper.  This is how I packaged up the journal and ATC which I then popped into a glassine bag.  Torn calico, stained with Infusions, wraps around both ATC and journal and I also made a tag to co-ordinate, the tag is another That’s Crafty product, one of the smaller sized MDF tags.This is the journal, with ATC placed upon it.
A textural cover with the detailing of the Character Constructions stamps and the beautiful wings are of course, from That’s Crafty!  Quiet Strength Takes Courage, one of my Affirmations stamps which I feel suits this image so well.
Within the feature in Craft Stamper, I write in the intro …
Sometimes, when life throws challenges in our way, we might need to seek a place to jot down worries, thoughts, niggling doubts or dreams that we are not ready to share with others. The Heart and Soul Journal is such a place, a place to build inner strength.

Gratitude to Craft Stamper, Trish Latimer for having me share this project and to That’s Crafty and Catherine Moore for creating inspirational projects which not only allow for creative fun, they allow for me to take the ideas within my head and have them materialize.
