When it comes to gardening, my mom has the greenest thumb. She is really amazing at finding beautiful plants to grow, keep them alive, and maintaining a garden. Since we have lived in our house, I have learned a thing or two about keeping up a garden. I typically have my go-to’s when it comes to flowers, but I think I have learned what will grow and what won’t in our front garden bed.

But each year, when spring comes, I always forget what I did. So I have to look back at all my pictures to figure it out. Well, I am finally getting myself organized this year and creating a decorative gardening journal to use to record what worked and what didn’t!

This isn’t going to your typical gardening journal, but rather a decorative one using tags and gardening goodies from Graphic 45 and Xyron!

When it comes to gardening, there is nothing worse than forgetting what you planted. So make a decorative gardening journal to record your gardening info! #gardenjournal #gardening

Step Four

Adhere the items to the Kraft tags. I created some tags with pockets and some with tags. Plus I wanted some embellishments to make the gardening journal more decorative!

Step Five

Continue to fill each tag with tags and pockets.

Step Six

Pop out the chipboard pieces you want to use.

Step Seven

Using the binder clip, attach the tag and chipboard together.

Step Eight

Fill out information you want to remember on each tag! I used some of the pockets to hold the planter tags. Then I wrote one each separate tag what I wanted to remember about what I planted where. One tag was for our front walkway. Another tag was for our backyard planters. Another one was all about what I planted in the front planter. I also recorded what I planted on the side of the house and in the backyard! This will help me keep track of everything in a decorative way!

Step Nine

Using the binder clips, attach the tags near your gardening supplies. For me, that is in our garage. I stored the tags on a shelf so I can see them and have them easily accessible when I need to know what to grab in the spring!
