Rooted in Nature Notebook


If you follow me on Instagram (Nelllies Hobbies) you may have seen that I made my own ‘designer series paper’ using the leaves from the Rooted In Nature stamp set and various shades of green ink.  I certainly had green fingers that day!


I am attending a Stampin’ Up! Celebrating Scotland event in Edinburgh on 1st September 2018 and part of the fun will be to swap cards and gifts that we’ve made for each other. I stamped this card with the intention of using it for my swaps.  However, I couldn’t resist using some of it for today’s project too…


I had a few long slim notebooks that I like to decorate to make them much prettier.  Here’s what I did to my notebook that measures 2 & 7/8ths x 8 & 1/4 inches:

  • removed the outer cover
  • cut a piece of Garden Green card to measure 10 & 1/2 by 3 inches
  • score the card on the long edge at 8 & 3/8ths and 8 & 1/2 inches
  • glue the notepad to the card, butting it up to the 8 & 1/2 inch score line
  • cut a piece of your stamped card to measure 8 x 2 & 3/4 inches and glue this to your Garden Green card
  • I stamped the sentiment ‘You are wonderful’ from the Rooted in Nature set in Garden Green ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card
  • I die cut the sentiment using one of the ovals from the Stitched Shapes framelits
  • I also cut a larger oval from Stitched Shapes using Vellum cardstock
  • I embossed and cut leaves using the Nature’s Roots framelits dies in both Garden Green and Tranquil Tide card
  • I then glued the Vellum oval onto my stamped card, added some Linen Thread loops, 2 die cuts of leaves then the sentiment, which is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you agree that this makes a much prettier notebook and a lovely little gift to remind a loved one just how wonderful they are.  What a little lift they’ll get each time they go to write themselves a note!
