October CCDT Hop - POP Up!

Hello Friends!

Welcome to CCDT October Blog Hop!

It sure feels like forever since we last hop. In fact we only missed one month which was September. 

The CCDT is resuming again. 

First, a big thanks to our past crew member Fran Sabad who joined the CCDT since the beginning. She is an amazing designer. We will miss her!

Second, we welcome our newest crew, Michelle Suit, which we are all familiar with. I have no doubt she will bring you great inspirations. You can find her when you click on her name.

Third, if you hopped over from Sandy's blog, you have come to the right place. Our October hop begins with this fun fold - POP UP! Insert. I have been seeing so many POP UPs in the social media, that I wanted to make one too. I followed Dawn Griffith's video tutorial, and I gave up after the 3rd turn and scoring. My brain doesn't work as well as they used to so remembering all the measurements can be a challenge when you want to do a bunch of POP Up cards. 

I like simple! Instead, I mapped out my measures to work with my electronic machine so that I don't have to think too much. Just add paper and push the button to cut. If you don't have an e-cutter, I highly recommend you getting one as it saves time. Time is essential for me.

I use my e-cutter daily as it is my right hand man.

With my POP Up, I used (1x) 12x12 the By the Shore DP for the inserts and the POP Up. The DP had extra spaces so rather than wasting it, I created extra pieces to use as decorative panels as you see on panels 2 and 4 below. It actually cuts 4 pieces but I only use 2 out of the 4 and really no wastage.

Where the dotted lines are the folds. See it in action, view here.

Panel 3 was cut to 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" of Whisper White cardstock and embossed with our gorgeous Seaside embossing folder. I then sponge the embossed panel with Dapper Denim ink. I also stamped the Angel Fish from Seaside Shore stamp set in Dapper Denim, fussy cut him and add some Wink of Stella

The seaweed was stamped with Garden Green ink onto Mint Macaroon cardstock and then sponged with Garden Green ink to pull the colors in to create nice shade of green.

I needed a boy fishing so I was on the hunt of a boy fishing. I found Huckleberry Fin on pinterest. I had to tweak so that it was not too detail to cut, and I raised his fishing pole up to accommodate the panel.

Then I wound our silver metallic thread around the fishing pole to make it look like the fishing pole was tangled up and Huckleberry did hook his fish.

Here is what my front looks like.

and this is what the inside looks like.

The designer paper is so gorgeous, you really don't need to do much.
