CLASS: Pop-up Layout - For the Record

CLASS: Posh Pop-up Cards

I really must thank my loyal students at Scrapp'n Savvy, in Spring, TX, who filled up tomorrow's class sessions having absolutely no idea what the projects look like!

I think there might be two seats left, but I'm not sure which session(s), so call the store if you're interested.

I'm calling this month's class "Posh Pop-up Cards". We are using the BRAND NEW, just released at CHA, Bazzill Wayfarer paper line, designed by Janet Hopkins. I absolutely adore Janet and her amazing style, so I was thrilled to have a chance to design with her papers, especially so early! Thanks to Karrie and Bazzill for making this happen.

Janet mentions in her blog post that this collection, while technically travel-themed, is universal enough to be used for many themes, which I totally agree with! This is proven by the fact that none of these three cards is travel-themed! Ha.

The first card we'll make is by request. Several people have requested a version of the hanging birdcage card, and I love the light and airy feel that Janet's papers brought to the inside of this card:

Posh Bird Card
Normally I give my students an optional greeting, but this card has so many possibilities that I decided to leave the pull tag blank. Feel free to stamp or write a greeting on it at home - I can see this being so many types of cards, from "Thinking of You" to "Happy Birthday" to "Congratulations" to "Thank you".

The second card is also by request. Everyone has been asking for a House card. On this one, I am providing six possible greetings or you can leave your label blank and fill it with something else at home. (no pun intended)

Posh Home Card
How cute is the little swing? And there's a felt welcome mat in front of the door! (So difficult to reach my back for patting . . .) Heh.

The third card is a fun combination of two pop-up dies to get a ton of dimension and layers. I made this a "friend" card, but you can certainly use it for other things. I left space inside (left panel) to add a photo, if you choose.

Posh Heart Card
These three cards are going to fill our 2.5 hour class time, but I am providing a SIMPLE fourth card that can be assigned as homework if we don't get to it. I haven't exactly finished it yet (what? the class is tomorrow - plenty of time!) but once I do, I'll edit this post and add the photo. 

Here's what you should bring to class:

Favorite Adhesives - tape runner and fine-line glue pen
Strong Adhesives - 1/4" tacky tape or Scor tape and mini glue dots
Paper Piercer
Bone Folder
Crop-a-Dile (if you have one)
Tim Holtz tiny attacher (if you have one)
Craft knife and cutting mat (just a little bit of cutting around the bird's legs - not bad, I promise!)
Optional: small brown or black ink pad for inking edges

Hope to see you there!
