April 2019 Scrapp'n Savvy Class Projects

Happy Easter everyone!

I'll be at Scrapp'n Savvy this Wednesday, April 24, 2019 teaching two sessions of this quarter's Pop-up Cards class. All pieces are pre-cut in the kit and you also receive a die to take home. The die in your kit will be the Oval Frames Pop-up and if you already own it you'll be able to trade at the end of class for something equivalent from the trunk show.

Our first card will feature the Oval Frames Pop-up in a pretty thank-you card with a coffee theme. (Note: technically the beverages could be tea or hot cocoa, so if you want to change the theme just flip the stamped greeting oval to the blank side) The decorator dies are the Coffee Charms, Flowers & Bee and Crosshatch Ovals.

Our next card will feature the Circle Tag Book Pop-up, decorated in a birthday theme with our Feathered Animals, Word Set 2, Birthday Charms, Tiny Accessories 1, Border Blends - Argyle and Crosshatch Circles.

Our final card will be a bottom-fold window card with the Ice Cream Sundae Pop-up. It is decorated with our Crosshatch Circles and You're Sweet die sets and features a fun elastic/bead/brad closure technique.

Here are the tools you'll need to bring to class to make the cards:

  • Scissors
  • Glue with fine tip
  • Tape Runner
  • Pop Dots or foam tape
  • Mini glue dots (perfect for sequins)
  • Strong double-sided tape (red liner or scor tape)
  • Tweezers or a QuikStick for assembling the ostrich
  • Bone Folder
  • Paper piercer and a small piece of foam to pierce into
  • Pen or pencil
  • Brown ink and a blending tool (optional, but nice on the lids of the coffee cups)
  • Phone or tablet to take pictures of the originals OR just load the pictures from this blog post onto your phone or tablet

See you soon!


January 2019 Sneak Peek Week - Ice Cream Sundae Pop-up

Happy Friday!

This week we are showing ideas for our upcoming January release, which will show up on our website for pre-order on Monday, January 21, 2019 with shipping starting January 31st.

You will find some great ideas from our talented design team (clickable links in the left sidebar) on their own blogs. On my blog this week I'll be sharing the assembly videos for the new dies to help people understand how they work.

Today's post is introducing the Ice Cream Sundae Pop-up. (All new release die links will start working on January 21st)

The Ice Cream Sundae Pop-up came at the specific request of Corinna, who handles our social media and customer service. It was the perfect suggestion for a specific themed pop-up that could be offered at a very affordable price. (Thanks, C!) Despite having 9 individual dies that combine to make an impressive and substantial pop-up, the actual footprint of the die set is small, meaning we are able to offer it at the lowest price of any of our pop-ups to date. If you've been considering getting started with our pop-up dies this might be the perfect first choice - a die set that has a specific theme, but yet works for many occasions, includes decorator dies that can be used independently and all at a price that you'd associate with a decorator set.  Learn the assembly by watching this video:

For the video card I've added our new Border Blends - Party die set, You're Sweet sentiment greeting, and our Circles- Crosshatch.

For the packaging samples I used the same combination of dies, except using the Squares - Crosshatch instead of the circles.
