Today I was able to play around with a new set this month that was released by Tami Mayberry for Gina K Designs called Hopeful Hearts. When I talked to Tami about the new set she designed, it sounded like a winner — she said it was all about hope. Once I got it in my hands I honestly had to catch my breath because so many of the sentiments in the set hit home with me and with what I was (am) going through.
I have a couple of favorite sentiments in this set so I set about the task of finding how I could incorporate many of the things I love about this set, into one project. That’s when I thought about perhaps making a book. I’ll miss having John this Valentines Day and truth be known, I think that it is about as tough as Christmas was. I smiled and cried when I made this little book but the theme of hope made it a labor of love. I made mine as a valentines book to hopefully help me through the holiday but I think these stamps will stretch through the year.
I used lots of Spellbinders on the book, I’ll be sure to list all the sets in my supplies list. These are the tags that pull out of the pockets. I put sentiments on both sides. I paired the book up with a little box to slide the book in. If you are interested in making the box as well, it fits the ID Tag box I designed and the tutorial for it is HERE. Call me silly, but I love having little things like this sitting on my desk – lol, I guess that’s why we make these things, right?
After I thought about it a while, I wondered would there ever be a time where this would not hit home? There’s always some time in our lives when we face adversity; hope and faith carry us. This was so good for my heart.

I hope you test this out. Lots of options with pockets. You could go with less embellishment and it’s actually a quick project! Thanks for stopping by to see me. Smooches!
