Cape Cod Glow Lamp Project

Good Monday Morning Everyone!

The ProScrapbook's League (PSL) Summer Camp has been in full swing the past few weeks and I am the proud Counselor of the Jewel Beetles Project Cabin. This was the first time Club Scrap has formed Project making teams. It has been a great motivation for members to take out all of their Club Scrap projects and complete them for points during Camp. Kay's Lacewings Project Cabin has been giving us a run for our money. Everyone agrees, it has been a welcome addition to the PSL lineup of team choices.

As a Counselor,  I am not allowed to submit projects to my team's gallery for points, but it didn't stop me from creating a project this week. When I first received my Cape Cod kit back in May, I knew I wanted to use it to make one of Kay's Holiday Glow Lamps. We were introduced to that project during the Holiday WOW 2010.

here is my Cape Cod version

stamped translucent paper with Cape Cod UM stamps and colored with markers

glued torn strips of tan cardstock to the exposed book board base to mimic sand

hot glued shells, beach glass and beach grass to base

Supplies used:
Club Scrap - Scholarship Tan HPOPs
Club Scrap - Memoirs Green cardstock inked with Distress Peeled Paint ink for beach grass
Club Scrap Bookbinding Glue
markers for coloring
shells and beach glass from my stash

Hope you enjoyed this beachy version of a fun Club Scrap project.

Have a fantastic week!



  1. Congrats to you Julie...a simply wonderful project!


  2. Oh, WOW. That is fabulous, Julie! (It seems I'm constantly using the word "fabulous" with you.) I LOVE it!

  3. I'm with Tricia...fabulous is just a great way to describe your artistry. The "layers of sand" are just so darn clever!

  4. Ooo neat, I haven't made that project from my WOW yet so I bet I have all the components I need to whip one out. I like this idea better so I can use it year round! Nice job!

  5. OMG!! I absolutely love it!! Gonna steal this one~ thanks!

  6. Amazing! Such an appropriate use for the Cape Cod images ... and such ingenuity altering the base to mimic sand! I wish I had your imagination!

  7. Yes Patti I'm stealing this one too! Just perfect Julie.

  8. Oooh, Julie...I see another gift for Dad in the works, here. Hmmm...his birthday is next month! Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. Awesome Julie, it's fun to see this lantern done up in a Cape Cod way with your great, clever layers of sand, so neat!

    I know, the awesome Lacewing project cabin is really goin' ta town on those projects, we are enjoying it sooooo much!

  10. Julie, you gave this project een new light - life!
    I love the sand around it with the sells. Absolutely beautiful!

  11. Clever "sand" and lovely luminary. I have to make this too! Thanks so much for sharing your talent!

  12. Amazing job on this one Julie! I may just have to 'lift' this idea and make one of my own!!

  13. Julie, that is the BEST version of that project yet! You really rocked it!

  15. Beautiful. I remember some sandy paper from ages ago. I bet I have some left. This will look great in my sea side bath. Thanks
