Gardening Forever.. Housework Whenever Notepad

We still have no heating… although the engineer is supposed to be here today between 12pm and 6pm, so until then, I have to craft in the lounge, as that’s where my workshop heaters will remain until the house gas central heating is resumed.

Remember that gardening paper stack, journalling spots and rub-ons I bought the other week half price.. well they were in amongst a pile of stuff I brought down from the workshop… so I decided to make a notepad with them today ๐Ÿ™‚ ย  I will be keeping the rest of them to make a gardening mini next year to record all the stuff I grow ๐Ÿ™‚

Supplies List :~

  • Stampin Up Blue Cardstock from the Earth Elements Pack
  • Born to Shop “Go Green” A5 Patterned Paper & Glitter Transfer Stickers
  • Small Supermarket Notepad
  • Dimensional Adhesive Squares
  • ATG 700 Gun
  • Corner Chomper
