Half of the Cape Cod Blog Hop post

Welcome to the next stop on the Club Scrap blog hop for the Cape Cod kit!  I hope you're enjoying all of the inspiration from our crafters.  I absolutely love lighthouses, and navy blue is one of my all time favorite colors. Many a kit with blue paper has been cannibalized for its blue paper.  The other papers sometimes get sad and lonely until they're needed.

Whoops - need to get back on track!

So, what do you do when one of your very best friends gets engaged near a lighthouse?  Well, you use the Cape Cod paper to make her and her intended a fabulous keepsake and card!

Unfortunately, one of the rules of my blog is that the gift receiver gets to look at the present before you do, and she's out of town for a while. Not very good planning on my part!

What to do?  Well, if you're like me, you'll already know that if you're making one project, it's always better to make two.  All of the supplies are out, and you've got the mojo cranking (see my mojo posts from earlier this year for more tips like this!).

The 4 x 6 cut aparts in this kit really inspired me to make cards. My favorite card size is 5 x 7, and these 4 x 6 panels are just perfectly sized.  That empty space on them just screamed "put a greeting right HERE!" So, I did.

The photo mat frames it perfectly (no cutting involved!) and with two sheets of 12 x 12 paper, you're easily set to make two quick cards.

You're probably asking yourself - where is the other card since I'm talking about two?  Well, if your name is Meagan, it will be in the mail to you next week. A little something to look forward to. If your name isn't Meagan, there will be a blog post just as soon as she calls me to dish all the details on her engagement!

In other news, I just got an advance copy of the All Things Paper book. I'm a bit biased since I'm in it (and my project features the best stamps in the whole world - from Club Scrap!), but it is jaw droppingly beautiful.  There are 20 fabulous projects in there, all with fabulous step-by-step instructions. It's a large paperback, with each page a full-color glossy letter sized paper. It will officially be out on June 11th, so not too much longer to wait.

I do hope you'll stop by later to see what else I made from the lovely Cape Cod kit, and I hope you enjoy the next stop on our blog hop - DebDuzScrappin' - Deb Weller's fabulous blog.  If you got lost along the way or just want to start at the beginning, check our the Club Scrap Creates blog for a full directory.
