Pop it Ups Wednesday with Sandy – Hay There

Hi Pop it Ups fans, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today. The big Halloween festivities are now past and the decorations are all stored away once again. However, I haven’t put away the Halloween Charms – I’ve used them along with a few other dies from the Pop it Ups collection to celebrate fall. The colors of fall are my favorite so just had to use those pumpkins again. This is a gate-fold with the opening in the center of a 6″ X 6″ card.

Pop it Ups Wednesday with Karen B. – Winter Gift Card Accordion

Hello crafters! In a few weeks it will finally be sweater weather here in south Texas and although we don’t get any real snow, it’s fun to create snowy scenes in cards. It’s also fun, and practical, to create interactive cards that double as gift-card holders. The Gift Card Accordion was designed to do exactly that.wintergiftcardaccordion

Pop it Ups Wednesday With Sandy – Happy Halloween

Hi, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today. We are at the end of October already but I think there is still time for one more Halloween Card. I kept this card simple, yet fun, with some flying bats and a spooky graveyard. I used the Spiral Circle Pull Card for the base and then added some great elements from Karen Burniston’s Halloween Collection.

Pop It Ups Wednesday with Kelly and a Wedding Card

Hi, It’s Kelly Booth here. One of my favorite things about making cards yourself is that you can customize them to specific colors. I had a wedding to go to and loved that I could give them a card made in their special colors.

Today I’m using the new Anita Frames Pop Up die set just released by Karen Burniston for the wedding card. Other dies we will be using are the new Circles & Label set, the Wedding Charms set, Stitched Squares, Poppy The Owl (tiny heart), Petit Flourish Stage it Stencil, and the Best Wishes Clear Stamps.

Here is my card front:

WitchCat1wm

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a Pop it Ups Wednesday tutorial today. This time round I am playing with a few of Karen Burniston’s new dies to create a Halloween card. My card features Whiskers the Cat sitting on the witch’s broomstick. I think the poor witch has fallen off it by the looks of the witch’s hat and shoes lying on the ground…. oh dear!

Pop it Ups Wednesday with Sandy – Snap

Hi and welcome, it’s Sandy Diller here today.  We recently returned from a wonderful trip to Europe where we took lots of photos.  We visited so many beautiful places and noticed other people taking photos as well.  Some were serious photographers and some were so funny as they posed for their selfies.  Jinks the Monkey is joining the rest of the tourists today and snapping a selfie.

Live, Laugh, Love

Hi and welcome. It’s Sandy Diller here today sharing a fun home décor wall panel. I love mixed media and this was the perfect opportunity to get my hands a little messy and use my dies in a different way. I used lots of Shimmer Sheetz, fun foam, dies and gesso to create this panel. Hope you enjoy and will give it a try.

A Jar of Asters

Hello Everyone, it is Christine here from the Susan’s Garden Club Design Team. I am so excited to be introducing 2 of Susan’s new releases, coming soon. I decided to use the Garden Notes Aster and the Canning Jar & Lid. She has both new Garden Notes and CountryScapes dies coming out and trust me, it was a hard decision to choose which ones I wanted to make first, but since summer is so short-lived here in Maine I decided to continue with flowers.

As crafters, I am sure many of you can relate to the fact most of us look at everything wondering what other purpose it could be used for, and that is what I did with the plastic packaging that most cutting plates come in and it is just what I used to cut my jar from. Continue reading
