love card featuring Pop `n Cuts

I am really loving this system! I love the simplicity… you have one XL base die and then swap out the inserts! Easy peasy! For this card I used the Winged Hearts insert.



Other: ribbon

I have you in my heart card featuring Pop `n Cuts

I’ve got another Pop `n Cuts card to share today, this one features the Love Phrase.


The Love Phrase is an insert that goes into the base die. On top of that, I used the word Love from the Sizzlet set. As you can see, it’s cut slightly smaller so it gives it a nice border.

You basically have the base die which is the Bigz XL size and then you can add any of the inserts to the center of it, creating different shapes and word phrases for the part that pops up. You just simply swap them out. :-)

you’re my stud-muffin card featuring Pop `n Cuts

Remember I said I was going to have some samples to show you using the new Pop `n Cuts? Well, I’m a woman of my word! Here’s the first one I have to share. :-)


When you open the card there’s some extra wow! The inside and outside are created with the new Pop `n Cuts system by Karen Burniston for Sizzix. (Check out the Pop `n Cuts video for more detail).


When you cut the card using the XL die, the corners automatically round. I love that feature! There are only a few simple folds to create the inside so it’s super easy to make. It takes maybe 20 seconds to fold, that’s all. Makes it a little bit more dynamic don’t you think?

To make the floating heart, I used the Heart Mover’s and Shapers die inside the Circle Label. I cut a page protector to size and glued it behind the label. I then glued the smaller heart that I cut from another piece of patterned paper into the center of the heart. wa-la! floating! cool eh?

So, what do you think? Pretty cool right?

I’ve been a busy girl

It’s that time of year to be buried in CHA-Winter projects. Karen heads out to the show on Thursday to show her new Pop `n Cuts System for Sizzix.  If you missed the video about her new Pop `n Cuts, you can check it out HERE.

Between last week and this week I’ve been a busy girl! I’ve been helping Karen kit…


I love her new system. seriously. I’m a fan of pop-ups, if you read my blog you know that… yet somehow the genius that Karen is, she made them even easier! I’m all for quick and simple so the Pop `n Cuts are right up my alley!


I’ve been recreating cards for her to take to the show… 80 to be exact! 50 of one design (which apparently I didn’t get any photos of) and 30 of another.

The little Xyron X is a lifesaver by the way! just sayin’.


The design is Karen’s, isn’t it adorable?


The above card shows the XL Die Set with Horizontal A2 Card and Circle Label. Also shown in the Decorative Flagpole with Lantern & Sign Sizzlet Strip. The star is from the Star & Circle Movers & Shapers Magnetic Die Set. The other card set (that isn’t shown) uses the coolest Sizzlet Strip called Bird on a Wireit’s WAY cute!

I do have a few samples to share but everything is still on my camera. I need to clean up my scrapbook room before I upload them… I can’t remember the last time my room was such a mess. But it’s a good mess so I’m okay with that. :-)

Now to get all the adhesive off my work table…
