Pop Up Cards popping up all over the place


I didn't think I'd be blogging today but I managed to get a wiggle on late yesterday afternoon and did this quick video on how I made my pop up card ahead of the weekend, so if you fancy making one for a mothers day gift just follow along with your paper trimmer. score board, papers and glue.
I used Secret Garden papers, flowers and banners and some leaves cut out from a Marianne Creatables die LR0150.

We're off out today to take in some local history at Coughton Court.  I drive past it every time I go over to Pink Tulip and haven't been in for years.  I'm sure it will involve a lovely lunch too.  

New One Day Workshop 
Oh I nearly forgot to mention I've managed to find a date for a new one day workshop running on Sunday 1st June. I've been working with Roy and Steve (Candy Box Crafts) on a mini album and drawer combo to decorate in the bright and cheery Mother Goose papers.  They've come up with an amazing little double drawer design I'm sure you'll love.  It's a work in progress at the mo,  but I've added details of the workshop to the blog. Click here for more info and booking details.  Pics of the project will be added over the weekend.  It's so cute. 

I'm going to head off now and 'put my face on' (I love that saying) so thanks for calling by, and look forward to catching up again soon :-) C

  15. Hi Clare, just got home late this afternoon from my 3 day scrapbook retreat!! We call it chocolate since all women love Chocolate, or most of us anyway!!! It was lots of fun, I finished 3 projects and will be posting photos soon. Love the video on the pop up card, will have a go at it tomorrow probably. Thanks so much for all your input and sharing of techniques.
    Love, love, love,
