Pop it Ups

Pop it Ups Lucy Label by the dozen

March 4, 2014

Hello, it’s Karen Burniston with a dozen inspiring ideas for the Pop it Ups Lucy Label die.

First, meet Lucy.


We adopted Lucy from the animal shelter when she was about a year old. She is a Puggle, which is a pug/beagle mix. Lucy’s special skills include barking, digging, chewing, destroying, escaping and shedding.

But Lucy is also sweet, fun, joyful and friendly, which are, coincidentally, the primary features of the Pop it Ups Lucy Label die that was named in her honor.

779 Lucy Label NP

The Lucy Label is a generic pop-up die. You can learn how to assemble the Lucy Label by watching this video on the General Pop it Ups dies:

Because the Lucy Label is so generic, it’s a great all-around choice for any occasion, as you’ll see in the following dozen ideas.

First, here is the card that I started in the video. I went ahead and finished it out with some metal embellishments and the Agatha Edges flourish.


Gretchen Schmidt illustrates the simplicity of the Lucy Label perfectly with this cute Get Well Card.


Donna Wright chose not to use the upper stair step platform so she left it in the collapsed position for this Birthday Card

Frances Byrne has created a delicious scene in this Chocolate Card._Frances_Byrne_Lucy_Chocolate

Fran Sabad illustrates how the Lucy Label can be used in any size card, even very small ones, as she’s done here on her Valentines Day Card._Fran_Sabad_Lucy_Banners

Helen Cryer used a stamp carving kit to make her own “hello” stamp that would perfectly fit the Lucy Label. Such great colors on this Hello Card.SONY DSC

Helen Cryer also made this card, where the Lucy Label blends in with the background to provide a platform for her Tea Scene.SONY DSC

Fran Sabad made this beautiful Love Card combining lots of patterned paper and elements. _Fran_Sabad_Lucy_Love

Raquel Mason got clever by turning Lucy on her side to make a horizontal pop-up and then adding a Honeypop turtle for even more pop-up fun in her Turtally Awesome Day card._Raquel_Mason_Lucy_Honeypop

Kelly Booth created a wonderful scene by decorating the Lucy Label as a fishing pier for this Valentines Day Card featuring Purple Onion Designs stamps._Kelly_Booth_Lucy_Fishing

Karen Aicken left the upper stair step platform in the collapsed position for this fun Trouble card.


And finally, another great Thanks card by Helen Cryer.


So there you have it – a dozen inspiring ideas for the Pop it Ups Lucy Label die.

As for the real Lucy, we have discovered that the only thing louder and more destructive than one Puggle is . . .


Two Puggles!

Happy Crafting.
