Journal and Card Gift Set with CTMH "A Tweet" and Bliss

A very dear friend of mine had something sad happen and I wanted to give her a card to tell her I care and a journal so she can write her feelings down. I've found at times in my life that writing things down can be very theraputic. Speaking the words of sorrow can break your heart all over again but somehow writing them helps me heal.


I inked up our new seam binding with Gray Wool ink - it takes color beautifully and ties gorgeous bows!


This project is also for our Heart2Heart Challenge this week - to create a 3-D object.  To play along with the challenge, include CTMH products in your project and post your link to this week's challenge at:
If you'd like to make this project, get these materials:
Paper:  Bliss (retired but our upcoming Florentine paper with soft colors would be a good subsitute)
Stamps:  A Tweet, True Friends (retired)
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

Paige

You have made a beautiful gift. All the elements work together and have good balance. It is so exciting to see the new color ready seam binding in action. It looks fantastic and finishes off the card and notebook perfectly.
