Club Scrap Cape Cod Blog Hop!!!!!

Welcome back Club Scrap Blog Hoppers! I decided to participate in the monthly blog hop because I felt it would give me the push I needed to find time to be creative. I had lofty dreams of elaborate projects every month but alas life, family, and work continues to get in the way. I made a quick gift card holder for my nephew's birthday and to be honest I wasn't even going to post it. I had hoped to decorate it more but I ran out of time for the hop. I decided to post it anyway because I wanted to show that Club Scrap speaks for itself. You don't have to have a lot of time or even a lot of talent to make a beautiful handmade gift! Club Scrap products make it easy!






This is a Club Scrap ATC Expandable File. I swapped out the paper it came with and covered it with Cap Cod paper since it is for my nephew I thought the red, blue and green were a perfect color combination.
 I opted for a velcro dot closure instead of the ribbon since it is for a guy but I also like the velcro idea when using it to carry gift cards! I used a Happy Birthday sticker from my stash. Will add gift cards and it's good to go! A beautiful, quick handmade gift!
Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the Club Scrap Blog Hop is Anne, over at http://crzymomstidbits.blogspot.com/. Wishing you a wonderfully creative day!

Anne Marie, I can totally relate. Time is of a minimum for sure. Thanks so much for sharing this fun little project and the colors are just perfect for a boy. Great job!

This is adorable, AnneMarie! Colors are perfect, but I'm guessing he'll love what is inside the best. :)

Great project Anne Marie! Your nephew will love it. I know what you mean about needing a nudge to get things done sometimes, so having this blog not only helps me get more projects completed, it helps me be more inspired with seeing all that is created by others. Thanks for posting.

I like this project with these colors. I had made it a long time ago with Avant Garde, another favorite kit. Great idea for filling with gift cards.
