Good morning everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend
We have a treat for you today, Pops has 2 projects to share with you
Pops kindly sent us this to display in our new shop and it is the cutest little book, it would make a gorgeous gift …
Today I am sharing a little notebook with you that I made using up scraps of paper and Messy Messages...
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
I have coloured my image with markers, pencils and chalks, the papers are scrap bits of MME Blink of an eye and Everyday Flair, all the edges have been distressed with chalk ink, I have added some Fabric behind the image, I have used Kraft Card and stamped my Sentiment on to it, I have also added a Corner Stamp to the back piece, I have added a tiny bit of scrap ric a rac, some scrap Lace and a string of Pearls, I have added some Blooms and 10mm Open Roses, I have punched my own leaves and added lots of Stardust for extra sparkle...
I have made the tag myself, these are perfect for using up scraps…
- Take a bit if card stock and cut to 15cm by 29.5cm.
- Fold in over at 13cm.
- Cut of the corners to create your tag.
- Decorate as you would like it to be.
- Cut a scallop and plain circle and glue together, then fold in half.
- Pop this over the top of your tag card and punch a hole through the centre.
- I have used wet glue and an eyelet.
- 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
