I know we usually make cards with our paper crafting stash, but it’s fun to make something different for a change. I am also a great believer in trying to come up with projects that use your scraps.
This little notebook was made by Angela for my October TV show and I thought what a brilliant little stocking filler or gift it would make.
All you need is a notebook with a good sturdy cover and I would suggest spiral bound is easier to work on, but it’s up to you. The scene here is made by using a blue sky backing paper … You will find some on our Joanna Sheen backing papers pad volume 2 or just use some pale blue card and add a cloud or two! The grass can be made with thick paper or card and tear it to make the rough curves of the hills and valleys. Then play with any flower dies that you have.
The back of the pad looks nice if you decorate it too and perhaps add a little gift tag, this says who it is from but also creates a space on the back of the pad for little notes the recipient may want to carry.
