November 2015 Pop it Ups Designer Challenge: Video Techniques
Pop it Ups 2016 CHA Mega Show - mini Sneak Peek

Pop it Ups Class at Craft Crossing AND Secret Word Giveaway Winner!

This Saturday I'll be at Craft Crossing in Gonzales, Texas with a Pop it Ups card class. We'll make two cards that double as optional Gift Card Holders.

The class is this Saturday, December 5th, from 12:30-2:30 and only costs $25. In addition, I'm showing up early so I'll have time for demos before class and to set out all the sample cards - lots of great inspiration from the Designer Challenge Team will be on display.

Everything in the class kits will be pre-cut, but please bring these basic tools to class:

  • Adhesives, Adhesives, Adhesives! - a strong double-sided tape, tape runner, and fine glue pen or bottle.
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers (optional, but very helpful for placing glitter dots and reindeer eyes)
  • Blending tool and coordinating inks (optional, if you're an inky sort - brown for Rudy, maybe some red/green/blue?)
  • Smart phone or camera for taking photos of the sample cards (I usually have about 100 with me!)

Call the store to sign up: 830-203-5303

In other news, Congratulations to Nancy Walker, who won the November Secret Word Giveaway on the Video Techniques Designer Challenge with her comment:

Karen, I can’t tell you how much your VIDEOS help me when I am trying to learn how to teach your fantastic pop its cards to the Tennessee Stampers group and others. You show great shortcuts and great variety of uses for each! I love this particular challenge. It sure shows the talent you have in the designers for ECD!


Nancy has won the two accordions used in my video tutorial: Star Accordion and Rectangle Accordion.  Or, if she has either or both of those dies already, she may substitute another Accordion style instead. There are 8 Accordions:
