August CropChocolate Project – SPLASH! A pop-up layout

Top view of Splash Layout

So it was “Something You Have Never Done Before” month for the Crop Chocolate Design team.  We had to try out something new and then put together a video to help you figure it out too!  Although I have made pop-up cards before, I have never tried to incorporate a pop-up into a layout, so I thought I would give that a try!  And since I just recently received the super cute Echo Park Spalsh paper from Crop Chocolate, I thought they would make a good combination!  So, here’s what I came up with:

Splash Popup Layout - Popup component

Hidden underneath the photo on the layout...a SPLASH!

This little pop-up component actually splashes up and outwards behind the little photo I cut out.  It took a bit of cutting to figure out just how to get it to work, so here’s a little video to make it easier for you:

Now, having said all of that, I have a little secret to share with you – there is actually a bit of MME paper in there too!  I made the splashes on the pop-up out of a piece of Surf’s Up paper I received in a cardstock grab bag I purchased through CropChocolate.  It went so well, I just had to use it up on this layout.  The only problem was…

I need to learn to put my pages away quickly after I have created them.  This one suffered a tragic accident (namely split bubbles) the day after I shot the video I had to redo the background page, but was lucky enough to be able to save the pop-up (although I guess I could have just watched my own video to figure out how to make a new one! ;))  I wonder how many more pages I will see suffer an untimely demise in my days scrapping at the kitchen table! 🙂

Give it a try!  It really is a neat project, and not nearly as challenging as it appears!  And how fun will it be to have people interact with the pages you create?!

  1. I’ve made pop up cards but never thought about it in a scrapbook page. This is brilliant! Love it! Thanks for sharing!
