I’m getting into the valentine’s day spirit by starting a series of valentine pop-ups. Here is my first one of the season! Paper is by Stampin’ Up. I made this by using some canvas textured paper, glue, and an x-acto knife. Used a fine tip marker for the writing. Martha Stewart had similar strung paper hearts on her page and I figured I’d take it a step further by creating my own version and incorporating it into a pop-up card.
Hope you like it!
A couple days ago I did the video for this pop-up book I created, but here are some pics of the whole thing, scene by scene. This one took me about a full week to put together and some of the scenes took more than one trial run. It was tricky trying to figure out the design and mechanism for some of the pop-ups. I practiced some of the cut outs on computer paper that I took home with me from the recycling bin in my office. I was determined to use only my left over scraps from holiday card-making and not buy new paper for this project. A couple of stickers (made by Jolee) are also left over from card-making. I will admit that I did need 1 additional sheet of black cardstock paper in order to finish the cover, but other than that, this project was made entirely from scrapbooking and cardmaking scraps and left over paper. For all of you who love scrapbooking and paper crafts as much as me, remember to make good use of all of your paper and don’t let your scraps go to waste. I hope you like it!

After hours of slaving away meticulously trying to get every scene just right, I have finally finished my newest pop-up creation: Twas the Night Before Christmas book. Take a look at my video below! Happy Holidays! 🙂
