Pop it Ups Cardmaking Winter 2016 - *FREE* eBook
Jan 2016 Pop it Ups Designer Challenge: *NEW*!

Winners! eBook die prizes

Last Saturday I launched my very first Pop it Ups eBook, called Pop it Ups cardmaking | Winter 2016. It's a celebration of the talented Designer Challenge Team - one project from each team member plus one from myself. It's a free resource, so definitely check it out for great Pop it Ups inspiration.

On the blog post announcing the book I invited people to leave comments for a chance to win any die set featured in the book. I chose three winners by random number generator and here they are:

Chris R. said...

So cute. I see some awesome projects to try.

Linda C. said...

Wish I were at CHA, too! I can't wait to see more from you and ECD--love everything you do!

Mary S. said...

I saw your Periscope live this morning. So excited to see all the CHA products live from CHA. Several people I follow are there. Love the new products.

Congratulations, Chris, Linda and Mary!

I've heard back from Chris, who has chosen the Hanging Charm Pull Tab die set, and from Linda, who has chosen the Oval Pull Card die set. Mary, check your inbox for a happy email from me.

We had a wonderful time at CHA and it was especially nice to have Kelly Booth helping me out with set-up, teardown and Make 'n Takes. I adore Kelly, who is a rock star in the cardmaking world, as evidenced by all the fellow stamper/colorer/designers who stopped by to see her and take photos. She is such a great ambassador for Pop it Ups and a dear, dear friend.


It was also wonderful to spend some time with Sandy Diller, the newest member of the Pop it Ups Designer Challenge Team and the creator of one of the most-photographed booth samples, the Barrel of Monkeys card. Sandy is also a member of the Elizabeth Craft Designs team.


Because we were running Make 'n Takes throughout the show, I didn't get a chance to leave the booth until the final day, so I especially appreciate all my friends who came to see me in the booth and apologize to those who were equally tethered and we didn't get a chance to see each other. Next year in Phoenix for sure!

Next week will be our first Designer Challenge of the new year. We will host the challenge right here on this blog and the theme is NEW! The team will be creating projects using the new release products (mixed in with existing favorites, too) for a wide-open theme.  Check it all out on Wednesday, January 20, 2016.
