Handmade by Heidi | Love Your Life Journal
Today I am excited to share a little personal wellness project of mine.
If you have been to JOANN recently (or perused online) you may have seen this fabulous Heidi Swapp Gift Kit.
Inside the kit is a gorgeous coil bound album filled with blank pages, a sticker sheet and date stamp.
There are so many creative possibilities when it comes to working with albums like these. Memory keeping, journaling…it really is endless. I decided to transform this album into a personal wellness journal for myself. A place where I can motivate myself with photos, journaling, quotes and fitness progress.
Let me show you a few of my favourite pages so far.
The first page I just had to add some of my favourite stickers from this Heidi Swapp sticker pad. I absolutely love the font of the roller date stamp that is included in this kit.
The teal stickers that are also included in this gift kit are so much fun to use too. The color just pops!
Because this journal of mine is a personal wellness journey I had to incorporate a month at a glance calendar spread. Using a ruler and fine tip black pen I quickly created this calendar to serve as purely a motivational piece. Creating calendars and playing with stickers is purely a creative exercise for me. I love this process.
I then created some fun inside pages that includes a few gym selfies. This one in particular is the day I ran 5km for the first time without stopping once. It was a huge milestone for me and I love that I included it in the beginning of my journal so that I am always reminded that I can do things that I once thought were impossible. Beginning a wellness journey for myself is so much more than just the ‘physical’ component of it. I love that I can document it in this journal.
Trackers are also a huge motivator for me so I included one in this journal as well. And seriously how CUTE is that running shoe stamp from this Heidi Swapp stamp set?!
Seeing the progress visually for me little by little keeps me motivated and encouraged. Let’s be honest….some days are just harder than others!
I am excited to continue on with this journal throughout the summer and collect all the moments both big and small worthy of celebrating! Wellness is an ongoing journey and we all need that component of self care. I hope you are inspired to maybe embark on your own personal wellness journey. This really is the perfect journal to help you get started!
All of the supplies I used in my journal (including the journal itself) are now available at JOANN and JOANN online.
Cheers to wellness!
