Keep me in your heart...

Hello fellow Crafters,

It's Wednesday again ! Today is is Gez' turn to host the Challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge Blog and she chose the theme : Sentimental phrases or words. This is what she said :

"Hi Gez here, I am delighted to be your hostess for this challenge.. I love sentiments and sayings, they really say it all to me! They make a piece finished! I'd like you to share some of your favourite words with us this week! They can be a main focal point or an embellishment, it's your choice! Say it with words..."

Why not hop over and have a go yourself. You could win a $30,- gift certificate for those lovely stamps. Just no digs and only one entry per person. Also, it would be nice if you used a Stampotique stamp !

I made an art journal :

The background was made with Pan Pastels in pink. I used a background stamp and my trusty cookie cutter to give the background some more interest. I also used a bit of sequin waste and white ink to stencil the white blocks. I then stamped the hearts on a bit of old book paper and cut them out, adhered them on the page with gel medium and gave them a bit of shading with a Big Brush Artist pen. Next I stamped Heartshirt on white card stock, coloured him with Copic Markers, cut him out and adhered him too with gel medium. I then printed the sentiment which is from Winnie de Pooh and adhered it to the hearts. Lastly I doodled around the page with a black and white pen and that was it. 
I used the following Stampotique Stamps : 

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it...


  1. Wow, jij gaat echt als een speer; wat een "productie" weer! Mooie tekst en super hart-thema! Groetjes, Gerrina

  2. Wonderful page Corrie, love the pink and the sentiment. It sure makes me feel very sentimental.

  3. That quote is so, so nice and is perfect for the hearts and Heart Shirt! Oh, I really like your style of journalling too!!!

  4. This is darn cute and I love that saying!!

  5. You know that I am a big fan of your work, Corrie, but this journal page really speaks to me. Perhaps it is because of my age and the fact that I really do love my husband so very much. I am definitely going to "lift" this page when I make Russ's birthday and our anniversary card (one in the same date!) next month! So well done, my friend!

  6. WOW this is fabulous and love that border the black and white really pop against the pink background xx

  7. This is beautiful Corrie xxx

  8. Great journal page. Your quote makes me want to go and read Winnie the Pooh again as this was my favourite book as a child,
