*NEW* Pop 'n Cuts House - Video Tutorial
World Card Making Day - Hand over the Candy Corns!

Snippets/Journey Card Class PLUS Secret Giveaway winner

This Friday I will be teaching my newest card class at The Collins Rep Group Fall Education Event in Houston. This event is open only to retailers, but I will be repeating this class for consumers at Scrapp'n Savvy in Spring, TX on Friday, October 25, 2013.

For North and South Carolina in early November, I will be using this class with one exception - the Halloween Card will be traded out for the Chair Card from the Journey class (the class favorite) since it will be after Halloween.

01 Spiral_Easel_Halloween

The first class card uses the Journey Pop 'n Cuts Square Base w/Ornate Edge, along with the Funky Label Framelits, to create a Spiral Easel Card. The card folds flat, as you see, and then when lifted, the spiral opens and causes the bats to fly. This card is desperately simple to make using just a few supplies. Here's what I used:


02 PopnCuts_Autumn_Card

The second class card combines two of the *NEW* Snippets Pop 'n Cuts inserts into one card. I've used both the Multi-Tier platform (very generic - you can make any sort of layered scene) with the new Sassy Label insert on the front. There is a companion Sassy Label Stitched Framelits set, which was used to make the greeting. I've also incorporated the Flagpole and *NEW* Chevron Border Sizzlits Decorative Strips.

Here are the supplies used in this card:

  03 PopnCuts_House_Christmas

Scroll one post down if you'd like to watch a video tutorial for using the *NEW* House Pop 'n Cuts insert along with the companion House Thinlits set. For this card, we'll style it as a cozy Christmas house.

Supplies used in the Christmas House Card:

04 Butterfly_Accordion_Card

Finally we will make a 3-page Accordion Album incorporating the *NEW* Stitched Framelits that coordinate with the Accordion Album and Frame & Label Bracket dies.

Supplies used on the Accordion Album:
