Club Scrap Succulents Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap February Blog Hop featuring the Succulents Kit. If you have arrived from the super creative Roni's Inkstained Blog then you are in the right place. If not, hop back to Karen's post at the Club Scrap Blog to see a complete list of all the talented bloggers.

In honor of my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary, I selected a past Club Scrap project, to showcase some of my favorite photos of them over the years. The Photo Triptych project (Anniversary Cruise 2009) has it all, pop ups, trifold book board covers, and two photo frames to showcase 4x6" prints.

Turn die cuts into succulents with papers from the Deluxe kit. Scroll to the bottom of this post for details.

Print photos along with embellishments for the project from the Digital kit.

Trim the pop up panel (Deluxe Lt. Green Print) according to the instructions and attach to the center of the Triptych.

Trim the centers from the printed Succulents frames and tuck tiny photos inside. Note: Add the trimmed Succulents digital images to the base of the pop up base.

I am so blessed to have such wonderful parents who shared that love with my brother and I everyday!
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!

Up next on the hop is Anne Marie at Artfully Balanced!

Paper Succulents:

Die cut Succulents papers with Poinsettias and Pinecone dies from Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations line.

Add color to each layer with Club Scrap's Hybrid Inks in Amethyst, Moss, and Mahogany and White Pigment Ink.

Attach the layers together with hot glue to form the succulents.

Glue the succulents to the front cover with hot glue.

Thanks so much for joining us on another inspiring blog hop!
