Graduation Pop-up Card (Pop 'n Cuts)

Mothers Day Class - VIP & Scrapbook Gallery, Rochester, MN

Once again, I've commanded the Kitting Room (er, Dining Room) for preparations!

Eileen Hull and I are heading up to Minnesota next week to teach at a trade show and will start our adventures in Rochester teaching a class at VIP & Scrapbook Gallery.

Here are the particulars from VIP's newsletter:

All Seasons With Sizzix!

Join Sizzix licensed artists Eileen Hull and Karen Burniston in this class featuring products from both of their collections. In the first half of class, Karen will teach a double-page spread with a Seasons theme. Four cards open on the layout to reveal pop-up trees, each tree decorated for the specific season. Your handout will include instructions for altering page protectors so the layout can be easily opened in an album. The second half of class will be taught by Eileen Hull, the designer of Scoreboard dies. This hands-on gift card holder project will give you the opportunity to die cut mat board and emboss it. You'll also learn how to create a 3D flower using one of Eileen's layered flower dies. Don't miss the opportunity to learn from the designers and have all your Sizzix questions answered! 
Treat yourself to this great opportunity! 2 nationally known designers at V.I.P., Sunday, May 13th, 1pm to 4pm
