Saturday June 11, 2011 
head shotFirst...a word from Karen:
I love pop-ups! I love the feeling of accomplishment I get when I create something interactive out of paper. I love the look of surprise on a person's face when he or she opens up a card and something unexpected happens. I love creating and teaching pop-ups more than I love Agatha Christie mysteries, malted milk balls and reality TV! (And that says a lot!)
My background is in civil engineering, and I am grateful for my CAD skills every time I design a new pop-up template or mechanism. In 2009 I licensed my designs to Sizzix to be made into dies to fit in their Big Shot die cutting machines. The dies are a fabulous way to make pop-ups - no more cutting and scoring by hand!
Besides being a pop-up enthusiast, I'm also a wife to John and a mother to twins Karl and Emma. We have a high-maintenance Puggle named Lucy who likes to eat paper piercers. After a decade of living in beautiful Colorado we moved in June 2010 to Katy, Texas. Yes, I did say June. Yes, it really IS hot in the summer!
I've taught scrapbooking classes all over the world and it's such a rewarding feeling when a student starts the class saying "I can't make that!" and ends the class saying "I just made that!"
I've got a passion for pop-ups. Watch out . . . it's contagious!
