Hello my dear friends....while thinking about ideas and themes about crafting..i kept writting whatever came to my mind...sometime on a paper or a notebook around :) Well..yesterday while crafting passion was triggering my mind...an idea flashed and i thought why not create a handy notepad to keep jotting my creative ideas with tags and pockets in it...Also,its a great idea to create and gift it to someone special on any occassion......so i just pulled out Blazing Poppies Paper Collection from my all time favorite Heartfelt Creations Collection Stack.As the name says..it has beautiful vibrant flowers and colors to brighten up the dull days :) Sat down and got my notepad to be altered and started wondering which paper design to use as a topper and how to create pockets and tag storage space...so here i go with the HC products that i used followed by instructions.
