Back in the early nineties, before the turn of the century, I decided not to travel home for a college summer break. I reasoned that the drive from New Orleans to my home state of Oregon would take several days and my cheap car wasn't likely to survive another trip across the Rockies. I applied for a summer job as a lifeguard and spent my days off with one of my engineering classmates, John, who had also stayed in town for the summer. Little did I know how much that summer would influence my future life. John had a part-time job doing contract CAD work after hours for a drafting company and since my rattletrap car was still better than the bus, he talked his boss into hiring me, too, so he always had a ride to work. Four years later John and I were married. We rented a duplex apartment in the Lakeview area of New Orleans, a three-bedroom, which meant I could have my first dedicated craft room. I was an avid rubber stamper back then, and would seek out local stamp stores whenever I traveled. In one such store I saw a pop-up card on display. It was just a simple box pop-up, but for me, it was a spark. I dusted off my CAD skills from that summer job and started drafting pop-up templates. I started teaching my card designs to my local stamp club and sending handmade pop-up cards to all my friends and family. The Lakeview apartment was eventually traded in for our first house and sadly, many years later, it was flooded and destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Eventually my pop-up templates turned into steel-rule dies and then further evolved into wafer-thin designs called Pop it Ups. I've expanded the brand to include companion products, such as embossing folders, clear stamps and stencils. Pop it Ups products are licensed and distributed worldwide by Elizabeth Craft Designs, a family-owned Colorado-based company. If you are either a seasoned or a budding crafter and have access to a personal die cutting machine you have what you need to get started with Pop it Ups dies. The members of my Design Team are talented, creative and all-around lovely people who have been on this journey with me for years. They come from four countries and five states and do an excellent job keeping the internet stocked with Pop it Ups inspiration. Check out the blogs of these talented crafters and you'll see what I mean! I invite you to try your hand at the projects in this book and see if this will be your spark to enter the exciting and fascinating world of handmade pop-up cards.

a letter from Karen

Pop it Ups dies have alignment nubs to place anywhere along the fold of any size card. Use Pop it Ups in all major die cutting machines that can accommodate a wafer thin die.

My blog’s name StampOwl is not because of any late night stamping sessions (although I have been known to do that at times), but rather it combines my two favourite hobbies - stamping & collecting owls. I started stamping and card making over 25 years ago and have always enjoyed creating cards that do something special. I love using Pop it Ups as they make it so easy to create amazing cards. Phil and I also enjoy record collecting and spoiling our two grandchildren.
