27 Feb - Pops - Messy Messages 1


Today I am sharing a little notebook with you that I made using up scraps of paper and Messy Messages...


27 Feb - Pops - Messy Messages 2


I have stamped my image on to Neenah Card and coloured with markers, pencils and chalks, I have distressed the edges with chalks as always. I have used up scraps of MME Breeze, I love to saves scraps up for things like this.

I have used a notebook punch for the edge of the paper, and a Bracket Tab Die for the side.

I have added a little pearl Heart and then popped it all in my Bind It All machine to create my little notebook. I have used up scraps of Sky Blue Seam Binding to the rings for a bit of texture and on the letter I have stamped a heart from the new Love Sentiments and then added some Stardust....

The second project for you today from Pops is a tag card made with bunches of love which is also on special offer at £3.00 for a limited time

27 Feb - Pops - Bunches Of Love 2


I have made the tag myself, these are perfect for using up scraps…

  1. Take a bit if card stock and cut to 15cm by 29.5cm.
  2. Fold in over at 13cm.
  3. Cut of the corners to create your tag.
  4. Decorate as you would like it to be.
  5. Cut a scallop and plain circle and glue together, then fold in half.
  6. Pop this over the top of your tag card and punch a hole through the centre.
  7. I have used wet glue and an eyelet.
  8. Using up scraps of ribbon and lace for the top.

Thanks Pops for those, they’re both lovely and I hope everyone will have a go themselves

Make sure you visit tomorrow when we’ll be showing another lovely card from Dawny P



  1. Hi all
    As always Pops you produced some adorable samples. I love them both very much, but if I had to choose (which luckily I don't) it would be the notebook by a fraction. You may ask why, well you will laugh 'cos it's only because of the colours. I just adore this turquoise blue and kraft together.
    Thanks for all the 'how to' details.
    All the best Linda
