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

Hello
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.

Field Journals @ Greencraft

Hello
Two of my all time favourite Character Constructions stamps, even before I eventually got my hands on them, Twig Chairs, they are such exquisite stamps, the details as you would expect from any Character Constructions stamps is exceptional.
Knowing I was using Green products, I decided to submit to Greencraft magazine, where they were subsequently published in the Summer 2018 issue.
I had this idea, to use birch tree bark as notebook covers and stamp directly onto the birch tree bark, something I’ve done often. I got the tree bark from a reliable and trusted source, I did not damage any tree so I could have some birch tree bark to play with!Other “Green” elements were a re-cycled coconut husk button and twine used to bind the books.
This is the rear of the second notebook…all stamps are Character Constructions.To present the notebooks, a re-cycled box.  It was dog-eared but instead of trying to fight the appearance by painting it, I distressed it further.  Re-cycled twine (from R&As packaging), re-cycled button and more stamping onto tree bark, was all that was needed to embellish the box.
Thank you so much for your visit today.

Woodland Maiden

Hello
Today, at the That’s Crafty Blog, I am sharing one of the samples made for the recent HOCHANDA show, where lots of new That’s Crafty products were launched.
On my sample, I managed to sneak in one of my most loved stamps from Character Constructions… sneaky because it is not sold at the That’s Crafty store but Laura will place special orders for any Character Constructions stamps which might catch your eye.
