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 Peeks - Oval Frames Pop-up

Happy Wednesday!

Our January release is now available for pre-order with shipping starting January 31st in the order received. I'm working on assembly videos for the new dies and sharing them here on my blog as I finish them.

To see some great inspiration using these new dies you can check out the blogs of our talented design team (clickable links in the left sidebar). 

Today's post is introducing the Oval Frames Pop-up die set.

The Oval Frames Pop-up is a great all-purpose generic die set with a lot of possibilities. While the oval shape is perfect for Easter-themed cards, it is very generic and will work for any occasion, any theme. It creates a 4-panel pop-up in a side fold card, making a great display piece. Learn the assembly in this video:

For the video card I used the drop down assembly and decorated with a heart tree and butterfly scene. The heart tree, ovals, grass and rolling hills come included in the set. The butterfly is a charm from the Charm Accordion set. The hello greeting is from Word Set 1. On the front of the card I added a Crosshatch Rectangle. This card measures 5" x 5" when closed.

The card on the packaging measures 4.5" x 6" when closed and also features the drop down assembly method. I added the clouds and background hills from the Outdoor Scene die set, plus a greeting from Word Set 9 - Love and the bunny from the Spring Animals die set.

I will also be creating assembly videos for the new charm sets and the animal sets. Look for those over the next week or so. If you missed the summary video of the release, here it is:
