Club Scrap Cape Cod Blog Hop

to another wonderful
blog hop.
This time we present to you
the May kit called "Cape Cod",
and honestly this is going to be another
of my favorite kits! The designers at
Club Scrap keep on amazing me:
I have too many favorite kits :-)
I hope you have arrived her from
Tricia's blog, with her wonderful ideas
of using the kit in the most efficient way.

I start with sharing one of the ALSB pages (#7)
of this kit. Have you never tried ALSB: assembly
line scrapbooking? It is the best way of using
the papers that come with you kit in the most
effective way. You get 13 wonderful pages out
of one pizzabox. You find all of the
ALSB instructions here:
On to some cards!
I have found lately that
pop up cards seem to be in fasion
and there are many dies for fancy
cards you can buy, but how about
the easy way, no die needed!
You know I go for the
easy to make cards. Here are
some instructions:
You need one piece of 12x12 inch
scrapbook paper. I used the
light blue print paper of this kit.
Some cut outs, and stamps.
Ruler, spencil, scissors
and glue or double sided tape.
If you click on these instructions,
they are easier to read.
1. Cut your 12x12 inch paper in 3 strips of 4"x 12"
2. fold them all in half.
3. For the pop up card you need 2 pieces.
So you have one piece left for another card.
4. Take one of the folded pieces and your pencil
and ruler. Now fold the card close and
measure 3/4" from both outsides and mark
on the folded side of the card.
5. Cut one inch towards the inside of the card.
6. Open the card and fold the just
cut part towards the inside of the card.
Now you have a little platform
where you can stick you image to pop up.
The card looks like this now:
7. The second piece of folded
4"x 12" is the outside of the card
to cover up the part where you have made the cut.
Now here is my finished card:
This is the front of the card,
with ribbon and a piece cut
from the designed scrap paper.
I added a few sticky pearls from my stash.

Now to fold open the card and
see what is inside.
This is the inside of the card.

I stamped the top part of the inside with
the rubber stamps and on  the bottom I
used the stencil that came with the kit.
The lighthouse is from one of the
 8,5"x11" papers. I hope you
see how easy it is to make this card.

 And from the left over 4"x 12"
strip I made another easy card :
Outside I used a cut out
and a stamped image
and the left over part of the cut out
you find inside of the card.
Now on to some more inspiration.

I love making pop-up cards! Sometimes I go back to a way old retreat formula - we were slicing and dicing and got many layers of pop-ups.

I think the pop-up cards are so cute, and I haven't made one yet. Maybe I'll try this one for Father's Day in the US (6/16).
