Layout with Fancy Butterflies Chipboard Embellishments

Hello and happy weekend! It's Jennifer here to share another wonderful Clear Scraps new release!  There are 16 new Chipboard Embellishment Shapes that were debuted at Creativation last week!  Today I'm showcasing the Fancy Butterflies Chipboard Embellishments that I  used on a layout. I  thought they were perfect to go with a photo I  took of my daughter while we were in LA this past summer!

Clear_Scraps_Monarch_Butterflies_Chipboard_layout

I  began by painting my chipboard with chalk paint in off white (Sheepskin is the exact color). I didn't worry about perfect coverage because my paint is the base color. 

Clear_Scraps_Monarch_Butterflies_Chipboard_layout2

Next, I  used both glitter pink and blue embossing powders to add bling to my chipboard.  Again, I  allowed imperfections in my coverage to let the off white chalk paint show through.  

Clear_Scraps_Monarch_Butterflies_Chipboard_layout3

I  cut a floral circle wreath with my Silhouette and white cardstock to place around my photo. Then using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I  adhered my Fancy Chipboard Butterflies to my layout.  

Clear_Scraps_Monarch_Butterflies_Chipboard_layout4

I  also used the die cut butterflies included in the collection I  used to accent around my photo along with enamel dots. 

Clear_Scraps_Monarch_Butterflies_Chipboard_layout7

Here are a couple more photos of my page. You can see I  used pop dots on two of the butterflies to add dimension (I'm a big fan of pop dots!).

Stand Up Love Display

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here using one of Clear Scrap's new wood products that will be available soon.

Love-stand-clearscraps-6-steph-ackerman


This new wood product comes unassembled.  Simply paint, ink or add pattern paper to the bases, then adhere them together.  Keeping with a pink and red theme, I painted the larger base red and the smaller one pink.  Then I used Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to glue the bases together.

Love-stand-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman
 
While waiting for the base to dry, I painted Love with the same colors, both front and back.
 
Love-stand-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman
 
Next, I placed adhesive on the tabs and placed the panel in the base.  I found the paint, as well as the adhesive, helped hold the sign upright perfectly.

Finally, I added a line of pearls to the "L" as well as around the base.  A few left over pearls were added to the point of the heart.
 
Love-stand-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman
 
Then I adhered flowers around the base.  The heart moves, so I slipped a photo behind the heart.

I painted the cake first with orange acrylic paint,

then I painted the frosting area with white acrylic.

To give it the fun sparkly, thick look of real frosting,

I added a couple of layers of a thick glitter glue.

Love the way it give it a little extra 3D texture,

and it looks like yummy frosting dripping down!

The shaker part of the card is in every layer.  The

movement it creates in every project you create

is such a fun element!  You can add sequins, or

Heart Love

Hi everyone and welcome back!

Today's project I am using another new item for Clear Scraps!

Today I am using the Wood Heart 2pc.

82315405_10215597473479038_4661891372914049024_o

I really wasn't sure what I was going to do with this.

But I knew I wanted to do something different.

And this is what I came up with!

Watermarked-20191229_145459

This came out better than I thought it would.

I added pattern paper to each piece.  Once dried I inked the edges of each piece.

I then offset the smaller solid heart to the larger heart.

I die cut out the picture of my daughter and future son in-law.

I popped that up with foam tape.

I added some die cut greenery pieces and tucked them behind their photo.

I then die cut out the word Love twice to make it more stable.

I used a white gel pen to give it a few highlights and then added a small pearl heart.

I just love how it turned out!

And its a very nice piece of wall art for my craft room!

Thanks for joining me today and see you next time!

Kim :)

 


Cat Family Puzzle Decor

Cat Family Puzzle Decor by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Hi everyone!  It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a tutorial to make some fun home décor using brand new wood frames, wood puzzle shapes, and shakers from Clear Scraps.  The possibilities are endless when customizing this Extra Large Square Wood Puzzle Shape, but I used mine to honor my beautiful shelter cats as family.

Cat Family Puzzle Decor by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Painting

Start by painting each piece of the Extra Large Square Wood Puzzle Shape with different colors of acrylic paint.  I knew my piece would be hanging in my kids' playroom, so decided to use four vibrant colors for extra fun.

Cat Family Puzzle Decor by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Stamping

Once dry, I stamped paw prints in white acrylic paint across all of the pieces in the form of two sets of tracks crossing diagonally.  To get a nice even impression, I applied the white paint to the stamp with a foam paint brush before making each impression on the wood.  Set aside to dry completely.

Cat Family Puzzle Decor by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Paint Frames

Next paint the outer part of the Heart, Square, and Deco Small Wood Frames with the same white satin acrylic paint and allow to dry.

Cat Family Puzzle Decor by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Adhere Frames

Print out or cut your photos to fit behind each of the frame shapes and adhere the small wood frames to the photos using a strong liquid glue like Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue.

Cat Family Puzzle Decor by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Shaker

To decorate the Family Shaker element, start by tracing the shape onto a piece of matching scrapbook paper and cutting it out with scissors.  Adhere this paper shape to the chip back with Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue, then add two of the chipboard cutouts on top.  Fill the shaker with clear, white, and silver seed beads, adhere the acrylic divider, then add the last chipboard cutout (that has been painted with white acrylic paint) on top with Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue.

Cat Family Puzzle Decor by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Assemble the Extra Large Square Wood Puzzle Shape and determine placement of your frames and wood shaker before adhering them all down with hot glue or Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue.  You can add a chipboard or paper backer to hold together the entire shape as well, but I though it might be fun to separate the pieces once in a while so chose to hang them all separately, but interlocking.

I hope you enjoyed this fun home décor project and thanks so much for stopping by today.  With three fun puzzle shapes to choose from, how would you use them to decorate your home?

Additional products used: acrylic craft paint, Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue, paw print rubber stamp, plaid scrapbook paper, seed beads


Wipe Your Paws Home Decor

IMG_5021wm

Wipe your paws!   As soon as I saw this new pallet sign from Clear Scraps  I knew exactly what I wanted to create! Who doesn't just love puppy paw prints!   

I started by punching two holes in my pallet allow for hanging. Did you know that your crop a dile will punch through the pallet???  So cool!

 

IMG_4847

IMG_4847

I then painted my pallet.   While my paint was drawing I opened up my word program on my computer and typed wipe your paws and then I found an image for paw prints.  After printing, I grabbed a pencil and rubbed onto the back side of the printed phrase and prints. I then turned the words over again and traced them onto my pallet.  The graphite from the back of the image transfers over to the pallet.  

IMG_4847IMG_4847

I them transferred the paw prints to the sign the same way! 

 

I then grabbed my india ink Pitt pens ( I have a thinner outline one and a thicker one) and traced over the words and paw prints.   I am just love these pens for creating signs! You can see how well they work!

I hope you are inspired to create your own pallet sign! 


"You Got This" Heart Wood Shape

Hi ya'll,

Tami here today to share a project that you can make for your child or anyone who needs a little encouragement.

This project uses a brand new product from Clear Scraps;  the Heart Wood Shape, which comes in a 3 pack and measures 7 1/2 X 8.

The size makes it great to use for home decor. 

81228582_10221260385208511_6191190821698535424_n

Create a colorful reminder to tell them "YOU GOT THIS" every time they look at it.

I started with the new Heart Wood Shape and stained it with pink ink.

I spritzed the board with a little water first to create a wash of color when I applied the ink.

I also distressed the edges of the heart with the same pink ink.

9534027D-1B44-4D41-9E26-F6A5C27D75DC

For the "You Got This" XL Script Wood Quote,  I wanted a layered, distressed finish. So first I sprayed the piece with a yellow ink that I heat set.

Then I brushed on a layer of pink paint and heat set it also. When the piece cooled, I used a sanding block to remove some of the paint.

30375ADB-84C6-45A8-9193-0CCE13742317

To assemble, glue the "You Got This" towards the left center of the heart.

Then add mirrors to the center of the "O" and to dot the "i" as well as arrange some to the upper right of the heart.

759C443D-E9ED-4D3A-AF33-09BF3A0D0C6C

Add flowers with small mirrors are the centers of the large flowers and rhinestones to the centers of the others.

7FB1FC1B-33D8-4298-AC64-71C574D45E17

To finish, glue a ribbon hanger to the back.

DIY Love Chipboard Wreath

Hello everyone... It's time to change the decoration from Winter theme to Love theme becuase the Valentine's Day is less than a month from today. Today, I have this Love Wreath idea to share with you all.

Clear_scraps_embellishment_chipboard_love_diy_wreath_

On this wreath, I use the new Love Large Chipboard Embellishment. For the wreath base is a paper mache wreath base that I wrapped it with burlap ribbon. I used glue gun to secure the ribbon on the wreath base.

I use scrapbook paper to dress up the chipboard letters. I traced each chipboard letter on the scrapbook paper with pencil and then fussy cut them with scissors. After that, I used the Beacon Zip Dry Glue to add the scrapbook paper on the letters. I used my scrapper (the one I use for htv and vinyl) to press the paper on the chipboard letters and also to remove the bubbles.

Clear_scraps_embellishment_chipboard_love_diy_wreath_

When all the letters dry well, I used smooth craft sanding block to distress the edges of the letters and to give them some texture too. This sanding step is also for removing extra paper off the edges.

I glued the red pompom ribbon around the wreath in the middle of it using hot glue gun. And then, I added each the chipboard letters on the ribbon with hot glue gun, too.

Clear_scraps_embellishment_chipboard_love_diy_wreath_

I have some of these paper flowers in my stash. I added them on both ends with hot glue gun. They complete this wreath.

There are LOTS of new amazing products on the Clear Scraps Store that are released this month. I promise you will LOVE them!

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have a fabulous day!


Love Banner by Steph

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here with a new post showcasing some new products from Clear Scraps that will be available soon.

Love-panel-clearscraps-4-steph-ackerman
I loved the wood finish and did not want to take away from it's beauty so I simply inked the edges with red ink.

I placed an inked panel of sheet music as the next layer.

Then I proceeded by adding an assortment of elements from tags to flowers and a wood heart which I painted with red paint.  A pearl heart was added on top of the wood heart.

I used a Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the panel and tied ribbon in place.  Additional tags were added on top of the heart.

A clay corner accent was inked and then added to the smaller panel.

Family Desktop Word Frame

I am SOOO excited about this new product from Clear Scraps!!
This new Family Desktop DIY Word Frame is brilliant in its design!

StandingFrame_small_Family_LeahCrowe

I started off by adhering all four pieces onto pattern paper.

StandingFrameFamily_howto_LeahCrowe

Carefully cut away the excess pattern paper using your handy dandy craft knife.

StandingFrameFamily2_howto_LeahCrowe
I also took a moment to add some distress ink along the edges, and then added in some Pearl accents and let them dry.

StandingFrameFamily3_howto_LeahCrowe
Once dry it's time to get the base adhered together. I find this next part helpful. Once you adhere the small base to the larger, take the standing frame slats, and put them in the two holes to help line the bases together, and don't remove it until the base is dry, five minutes or so.

StandingFrameFamily3c_howto_LeahCrowe

I removed mine too early and caused the slats to be off just a smidge when I removed it, causing my frame not to sit down in the holes properly.

I printed my photo out to 3.75 x 5.5" and adhered it to the family base.

StandingFrameFamily4_howto_LeahCrowe
Now comes the beautiful frame. I found it helpful to use these cheap little clamps I found at a tool store so I wasn't continually making sure the frame was staying adhered and not lifting up.

StandingFrameFamily5_howto_LeahCrowe
While this was drying I adhered the new chipboard butterfly to pattern paper and cut it out with my craft knife.

Next, embellish until you're happy! :)

Springtime Home Pallet Sign

Home with Wagon of Flowers Pallet Sign by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Hi everyone!  It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a tutorial to make some pretty spring home décor using brand new chipboard embellishments and pallet shapes from Clear Scraps.  Customizing a simple rectangle pallet shape to welcome spring is super easy thanks to the new large chipboard designs that come in welcoming phrases and home-y shapes.

Home with Wagon of Flowers Pallet Sign by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Pallet

Start by trimming a sheet of 12" x 12" scrapbook to fit onto each slat of the Rectangle 12" x 10" Medium DIY Pallet Shape.  I wanted to leave a small unfinished wood border around each slat to give my sign a rustic feel, so I trimmed my paper to about 3.75" x 11.75" for the middle slat and about 2.5" x 11.75" for the top and bottom slats.  Apply collage medium or Mod Podge to the wood pallet, smooth the paper on top to adhere, and then cover the piece with another coat of collage medium or Mod Podge to seal the paper and yield a smooth matte finish.

Home with Wagon of Flowers Pallet Sign by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Paint Wagon

Paint the Large Wagon Chipboard Embellishment with champagne metallic acrylic paint.  I like to use a soft foam brush for soft and even application.

Home with Wagon of Flowers Pallet Sign by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Paint Letters

Using white satin finish acrylic paint and a soft foam brush, apply several thin coats of paint to the Large Home Chipboard Embellishment for a smooth and even finish.

Home with Wagon of Flowers Pallet Sign by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Adhere the letters from the Large Home Chipboard Embellishment to the top of the pallet using hot glue for secure adhesion but a little bit a dimension.  Then pop the Large Wagon Chipboard Embellishment up on the bottom of the pallet using foam adhesive.  Tuck pre-formed flowers, die-cut leafy branches, and a few small floral picks into the top of the wagon and secure the entire arrangement to the pallet using hot glue.

I hope you enjoyed this pretty spring décor project and thanks so much for stopping by today.  What would you fill your wagon with?

~ Annie

Additional products used: 12" x 12" scrapbook paper, Distress Collage Medium, Collage Medium Brush, champagne metallic acrylic paint, white satin acrylic paint, pre-formed flowers and leafy floral picks, hot glue gun, foam adhesive


Birthday Cake Card

Hello everyone and welcome to another project.

I am very excited to show you what I have created using some of the new

items from Clear Scraps.

Today's project is a super cute and easy card.

I am using the new Birthday Cake Chipboard Embellishment.

81402384_10215597473039027_1959317703378337792_o

I knew as soon as I got this what I wanted to do with it!!

Watermarked-20191229_184858

I started out with making my card base.  I made an A2 size card with the fold at the top.

I added 2 layers of pattern paper that I distressed the edges.

I added a piece of white crocheted lace.

Watermarked-20191229_184904

For the cake embellishment I added pattern paper to the back, to make

it look like how a fancy cake would look when covered in fondant.

Watermarked-20191229_184904 - Copy

I added Nuvo drops to the front of the cake.  The Nuvo drops gave it an icing appearance.

I spread the Nuvo drops like I was coloring the chipboard.

I gave it a very nice thick coat.

Watermarked-20191229_184904 - Copy (2)

I used a different color on the candles.

To give the flames that flame look, I used gold stickles.

Once I adhered the chipboard piece to my card, I finished it off with

a few flowers and a bow.

Very simple card, but oh so cute!!

Thanks for stopping and see you next time!

Howdy! Country Greetings!

IMG_4970wm

HOWDY!   Today I am excited to share this quick and easy country welcome sign I created with Clear Scraps brand new release using the

Howdy Large Chipboard Embellishment and Deco Wood Shapes! 


IMG_4944

I started by covering my pallet with patterned paper.  I then punched holes in the pallet and added jute for hanging. 


IMG_4944

I painted my Chipboard HOWDY with black paint and then wrapped jute around an accent point on each letter.  I adhered the letters to my pallet and added a flower for accent.  
IMG_4944
Once I was "done" I decided to add jute around the outside of the pallet to finish the welcome sign.  Be sure to check out all the new releases from Clear Scraps.

I started with stamping the sentiment directly on the wood using Memento Luxe Ink Pad with acrylic block. It is a mixed media ink, you can also use any pigment ink that will work on all surfaces.


Clear_scraps_desktop_diy_wood_word_frame_love_01

After the ink dried, I used my wood burning tool to trace the words. Wood burning is one of my favorite technique to work with wood. It gives the wood extra texture.


Clear_scraps_desktop_diy_wood_word_frame_love_01

I traced the wood word and both bases on scrapbook papers. After that, I cut the paper with scissors. And then I used decoupage glue to add the patterned papers on the wood word and base plates. I applied another thin layer on top of the papers to seal them. Set aside to dry.


Clear_scraps_desktop_diy_wood_word_frame_love_01

I added extra wood-burn dots around the heart frame and then added it on top of the heart with wood glue. I embellished it with some mini roses and twine bow. I used glue gun to add them on the wood frame.

I love all the new Desktop Wood Word Frames. They are perfect for desk decor at the office and home, even it will make perfect gift.

Clear_Scraps_2020_Mini_Shaker_layout

I  used the Shaker for my title of my page; what a great way to list goals for the coming year!  I  painted the top frame of the Shaker with black paint and adhered patterned paper to the chipboard base. I  then filled with  coordinating sequins from my stash. 

Clear_Scraps_2020_Mini_Shaker_layout2

I  typed out a list of items I'd like to achieve (or stop doing) this year with my electric typewriter and patterned paper from the collection I  used.

Clear_Scraps_2020_Mini_Shaker_layout3

Here, I  layered embellishments around my photo using pop dots to give dimension.

Cats Meow Deco Wood Shape

Hi ya'll, 

new Design Team member Tami here today with a project I made using the new Deco Wood Shape which comes in a pack of 3 and measures 9 1/2" X 7.

The size is great for creating an art piece for the wall or to display.

I also incorporated another brand spanking new product; the Mini Paw/Heart Shaker, the perfect embellishment to show your love for your favorite pet.

81667377_10221260728777100_1766810805245837312_n

We all love our pets and treat 'em like family, so why not create a special decor piece featuring your favorite furry critter.

First, I adhered a pawprint printed paper to the upper half of the Deco Wood Shape and white cardstock to the bottom half.

EDF5420F-B4AD-48A1-8994-828F8CFA6ECE

For the border, I adhered a row of dot printed paper to a 3/4" piece of brown cardstock and adhered this piece over where the 2 paper on the Deco Wood Shape met.

2FBEF2E5-E762-4655-9406-148F699DAAD1

I used a file to remove excess paper from around the edges.

Next, I stenciled "Sonni" in blue ink on the white cardstock using abc Lower Case Letter Stencils and added a loose outline in black pen.

EAC0BD5B-C7FC-4CED-8B4A-C1317C7D1C09

I used all 4 layers to make the Heart/Paw Shaker.

BD394579-ECB4-4F37-B524-53BA034D8A5E

Here's how I prepped them:

I painted the top layer white and added some loose outlines around the edges to match the letters.

For the bottom solid layer, I cut a piece of coordinating paper to adhere to the paw portion.

I printed a photo and cut it to fit the heart portion of the shaker.

To assemble:

I adhered 2 of the plain chipboard shapes on top of the solid base.

Then I adhered the clear plastic protector piece on back of the painted top piece, and adhered the photo behind it.

I added the blue and white sequins from the Ocean Sequins to the paw portion of the shaker.

Then topped the base with the painted layer with the photo.

2FDE2016-931F-4C33-848C-5762AB6402EE

The Mini Paw/Heart Shaker was then adhered to the center top of the Deco Wood Shape.

2C45783A-1FF2-4B1C-8F08-0AAD1601E304

Perfect to display or hang to show off your pet, or you could make one to give as a gift, or both!

You could also just make the Mini Paw/Heart Shaker and add a magnet on the back to display on your fridge.

Sweet Baby Card

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here with a new post using one of the new Chipboard Shape Embellishments that will be available shortly.

Baby-card-clearscraps-5-steph-ackerman

I painted the onesie with two layers of pink pant.  Then I inked the edges with brown ink.

Baby-card-clearscraps-9-steph-ackerman
 
While waiting for the chipboard to dry, I created my card, wrapping ribbon around the layers before adding the panel to the card.  A sweet phrase was stamped, die cut and added to the corner.
 
Baby-card-clearscraps-7-steph-ackerman
 
The onesie was added to the card with foam adhesives so it had some dimension on the card.

A heart shaped set of pearls was added around the opening.

Brand New Wood Flip Flops

Hey, Clear Scraps friends!!
I am so excited to share with you one of the new releases featuring these adorable XL Wood Flip Flops!

FlipFlop_shape_LeahCrowe
I followed an acrylic painting tutorial on youtube to create this beautiful moonlit beach-scape.

Before I did that though, I applied gesso to the flip flops and let it dry. That way the acrylic would flow easier over the wood.

FlipFlop_howto1_LeahCrowe
Once that dried I painted the scene on the background.

FlipFlop_howto2_LeahCrowe

I lined up where I wanted the strap to lie, and then painted it to match the background, making it appear 3D-ish.
Once that dried, I used my crop o dile to punch small holes underneath the tip of the straps so I could create a wall hanging. Tie your twine through the holes, then adhere the straps to the flip flops using a good liquid adhesive.
FlipFlop_howto3_LeahCrowe

I had started off with the idea of adding in the brand NEW chipboard umbrella and a beach chair or adding a quote along the lines of "The Beach is my Happy place", but I couldn't bring myself to cover up any of the scenery. I think it looks so cool hanging on my wall.

Stay tuned for more awesome inspiration!!

Hello and happy Monday! It's Jennifer on the blog to share a winter themed album using the Scalloped Square Album.  And I'm going to share a couple of techniques I  used!

I  thought the Mittens Chipboard Embellishments would be a cute accent on the chrome book rings! I  attached them by punching holes in the top ends and strung bakers twine through to affix around my ribbon.

I  first painted my chipboard with chalk paint in off white.  I  then used embossing ink and glitter embossing powder to give them an extra shine.

I  wanted to add some dimension to my front page as well as allow more of my acrylic to be seen. Using the Snowflake 4x6 Stencil and modeling paste on the right half of my front cover.

Here is a close up of the end result!  I  added patterned paper and embellishments to the left half of the front cover.

For each page, I   cut my background page 5.5 x 5.5 inches ensuring each side lines up.  I  matted my photos on white cardstock and added embellishments.

So many choices, I love making seasonal crafty goodness,

but this card makes the cut for a fave, just because it looks

great but was simple to make with the 4x6 Plaid stencil.
