I am blessed to have a loyal group of students at Scrapp'n Savvy who sign up for my class every month. Last month I taught the You Make my Heart Sing Mini-Album with the waterfall heart feature. We were talking in class about what other pop-up dies would work well in a waterfall, so I decided to show a couple of options with this month's class. (This class is this Saturday, May 18, 2013 - there are a few spots left!)
"Wonderful Day" is a Layout class where I've used a waterfall technique with my brand new Pop 'n Cuts Square Base die to make a decorative-edged waterfall complete with a couple of pop-ups.
We will make the full spread in class - everything you see here. You'll also have a full sheet of alphabet stickers (used for the word "day") in your kit. I only added a few photos to my sample layout to give a feel for how it will look with photos, but between the background and the waterfall, there is room for many, many photos! I suggest documenting a "wonderful day" when you were quite the shutterbug!
The title embellishment cluster features a few of my dies (Bigz Butterflies & Labels, Movers & Shapers Heart and Flower, Bigz Frame & Label, Bracket). You can choose a different second word for your title if you prefer - anything that you find wonderful, like family, life, garden, father, mother, son, daughter, granddaughter, DVR . . you get the idea!
The decorative edge of the new Pop 'n Cuts Base die, plus the included flourish piece, really dresses up the look of the waterfall feature. Pull the tab at the right to engage the waterfall.
The first set of pages in the waterfall will reveal the first pop-up, a combination of two brand-new Journey Pop 'n Cuts dies - the Funky Label Insert and the Butterflies Movers & Shapers set. I've also strung some of the ribbons from the Label & Ribbon Movers & Shapers set as banners.
Keep pulling the tab and the first section will close and slide under and the next section will open. This is a picture/journaling spread - fill it however you like!
Keep pulling and the final spread will open, featuring the Spinning Platform die with the new Funky Label Framelits on top. The beauty of the "oldie-but-a-goodie" pop-up die is that it will spin the item out of the fold to lay flat and you can therefore use photos and rigid items on the platform without worrying about folds through people's faces.
Here is a Vine video showing the waterfall in action:
