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:
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?!
