#### Welcome to your final stop on the National Scrapbook Day Club Scrap Blog Hop.

#### Aren't the projects so far gorgeous?

Today I’m
giving you a formula to make 10 cards, using just seven sheets of paper, stamps,
inks, and miscellaneous embellishments.
The method I’m using is Assembly Line Card Making (ALCM) developed by
Tricia Morris at Club Scrap here is an example.
It is a great way to use up extra items from your stash. The card sketches are from Operation Write Home (OWH). OWH sends handmade
blank cards to soldiers for them to send to their loved one. I encourage you to send some of your finished
cards to OWH. Club Scrap has a goal of sending 2,013 cards to OWH in 2013 and if you contribute you could win a Club Scrap gift certificate, more information here.

I’m
calling this ALCM – Happy Spring because I used the Club Scrap Spring Weekend of Workshops (WOW) collection for my cards. I’ve added the
instructions at the bottom of the post. Here is the paper used (4 sheets of
12x12 paper and 3 sheets of 8.5 x 11 paper), the cuts made to the 12x12 papers, and the resulting scraps.

**OWH sketch #167**

**OWH sketch #51**

**OWH sketch #98**

I
just had to do a more masculine version, you can think of these as his & hers.
I uses the Club Scrap Fossils Remix paper collection and Equestrian
collection stamps. I added in embossing powder, watercolor paper, markers, dry embossing and Gelatos. Both sets use greeting stamps from the Club Scrap Wildflower collection. The ALCM approach is very versatile and especially easy with Club Scrap's color coordinated collections.
