Pop Up Baby Birth Announcement

Okay, I have got to get over being intimidated about posting on my blog!!!  I'm not sure why I am, I just am.

Anyway, here is a project I designed and created for UStamp with Dawn and Friends Early Summer Edition 2010.  You can join that site through the blinkie I have near the upper left of my blog or just click on the title above and then scroll down to the appropriate event. With UStamp, you will receive 40+ project tutorials that you can download and print, chat with other members, share talents, make lots of new friends, and even win prizes!  Check it out.

I got the idea for the Pop-up part of the design from a Cricut class my sister took me to a few years ago in Cedar City, Utah and decided to change it to a mini album/announcement. I would love to give credit to the class instructor, but I cannot remember her name.  Anyway, a big thank you to her for teaching me how to do the pop-up tag. 

I plan to make a video of how to do this project soon.  I had a lot of fun with this one and hope all of you will give it a try after I make the video.  Then I hope you will send me a link to your posting so I can see the amazing things you create from my tutorial.


  1. So cute JA. What a great concept. I can just imagine this one done with Clowns, balloons or any type of paper ribbon. Congrats! Fun project.

  2. Thanks so much Sue,
    I appreciate your comments and your friendship!

  3. The teachers name is Jessie Leavitt and she rocks!

  4. Jerri Ann, thanks for posting this project. I fell in love with it at SU St. George, UT Regional but I have yet to make one myself.
    I have been so busy getting ready for crop where I'll be doing a demo and a Make-N-Take here in Nevada. Wish you could come.

    Now don't be afraid to post because you do great projects. We would really be missing out if you didn't post. So post, post, post.


  5. Thanks so much ladies. I need to try to work out a schedule so I will post more often. I'll work on that!
