Under the Sea Circle Pallet

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here sharing a new project using the Circle Pallet Shape as the base.

Octopus-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman

The circle pallet was painted with several shades of blue paint. 
For a bit of shimmer, I spritzed on a spray ink.

Octopus-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman

Once dry, I used the 6" Beach Fun Stencil to add several stars and sea shells to the background with brown ink.

Octopus-clearscraps-steph-ackerman

Next, I painted the Octopus Chipboard Embellishment with dark blue paint so he would stand out from the background.
I wanted the Octopus to appear happily floating amongst the sea shells.

Octopus-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman

The Octopus was adhered to the right side.  Then I added a crab from the 6" Beach Fun Stencil in a different color for a more dramatic effect.
 
With all the pallet shapes available, what will you create with yours?
 
Thanks for stopping by.

Woof 3D Frameable

Hello and happy Monday! It's Jennifer on the blog to share another of the new 3D Frameables!  For my project, I used the Woof-Bone Word N Shape along with the Base with Square Frame.   One of the great things about the 3D Frameables is that you can mix and match themes, as well as interchange elements depending on the holiday!  The Woof-Bone Word N Shape is perfect to show off a favorite picture of our dog, Henry!  

IMG_8767 (1)
I began by painting the base of the Square Frame as well as the "Woof" word in chalk paint in orange.  You do not have to use chalk paint but it does dry quickly as well as looks great on the birch wood. I also painted the smaller top base oval with black acrylic paint.

IMG_8766

Next, using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and patterned paper, I  covered the top of the Square Frame as well as the bone.  I cut away excess paper using scissors and an x-acto knife followed up with a sanding tool to smooth any edges.  I did use the same orange chalk paint to line the edges of each element before assembling my 3D Frameable.   My bottom oval base is also covered in patterned paper; I found it was best to use my x-acto knife to cut out the paper in the slots followed by using a thin sanding tool.


IMG_8763

After my paint was dry then I was ready to add embellishments to my elements!  I chose smaller stickers to not overwhelm each piece.

IMG_8768

Here, I adhered my photo directly onto the base of the frame followed by the square cut out. I then used stickers from the collection I used to accent the frame.   You can see there is a portion of wood that "sticks out" from underneath the frame and this is what holds it into the base.  You can move your elements as you see fit!

New Product - 3D Frameables

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here sharing a new product release - 3D Frameables.
3D Frameables are amazing  interchangeable home decor items. 
You select the pieces you want to create your own perfectly designed project.

Fall-frame-clearscraps-rinea-3-steph-ackerman

I'm working with the a fall themed design.  I painted the large base and the frame with brown paint.  Rinea Marigold/Gold Foiled Paper was adhered to the smaller base, creating a nice contrast.  Since I was using a foil paper, it was very easy to cut the slots needed to insert the 3 elements.

Fall-frame-clearscraps-rinea-steph-ackerman

For added dimension, I adhered Rinea Marigold Starstruck and Rinea Mocha Starstruck to the pumpkin, then, I used the new sanding tool to sand the edges.  FALL was inked with brown ink and also lightly sanded for a distressed effect.

Fall-frame-clearscraps-rinea-1-steph-ackerman

All the elements fit into the slots and you can arrange them as you like.

Fall-frame-clearscraps-rinea-5-steph-ackerman

I stamped a fall phrase on the pumpkin, then placed a photo in the frame.  If you leave one of the edges of the frame free, you can easily replace the photo as the season progresses.
 
Be sure to stop by the store to see all the wonderful designs that are available.
Remember, select the elements you like for a one of a kind project.

Father's Day Card with new Chipboard Border

Hi Ya!

Tami here with you on the blog today with a Father's Day card to share.

I wanted to design something using one of Clear Scraps' new Chipboard Borders; they come in 5 different designs. They measure 11" long so they are a perfect fit for Clear Scraps' new Slimline Albums. They are also great to use on slimline style cards, or--- if you cut them in half you get 2 - 5 1/2" pieces which fit exactly on a standard 4 1/4 X 5 1/2" card.

While looking the borders over, I thought that the semi circle cut outs on the Curves Chipboard Borders might be interesting to play with.

I needed a card for my hubbie for Father's Day, so I decided to pull out some cardstock, inks and trim in blues and browns along with some Father's Day stamps.

The stamp set had a circle Happy Father's Day sentiment that seemed to match up to the size of the cut outs in the borders, so I started there, and kept adding!

Here's how the card turned out...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_wm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's how I made it... first, I cut one of the borders in half then inked with several different shades of blue and brown ink...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_1

Next, I inked up a piece of white cardstock in different shades of blue, spritzed it lightly with water, blotted gently and set it aside to dry...

Once the cardstock had dried, I cut a 3 1/2 X 5 1/4" piece and punched out 3 circles...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_punch

I masked off the bottom of the circle sentiment, inked the stamp, removed the mask and stamped at the top of a circle; repeat for other 2 circles...

I also stamped the sentiment for the card on a leftover piece of the inked paper and hand cut it in the shape of a tag...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_tag

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_stencil

I adhered pieces of twine on the ends of the back of the border with double sided tape, then tied the towards the top...

Then it was time to assemble, I started by adhering the inked paper towards the right side of a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 kraft card base, then adhered the circles to the back of the border before adhering it towards the left of the card base. Attaching the tag with thin twine and a tiny pin finished the card...

3D Frameable Collection Magical

Hello and happy Wednesday! It is Maya here on the blog today to share a home decor project featuring the new 3D Frameables. If you like to create and decorate your own home decor projects, you will definitely love this new collection! 

P1210271_post
▼ For my project, I have the scallop frame and magical-mouse head word n shape.

▼ To start the project, I traced the wood bases on 2 patterned papers, and then cut them out with a carving craft knife.

194586171_311817390406409_1102811266575342983_n

▼ Next, I applied Aleene's tacky glue on the wood bases and adhered the cut out papers on top of the bases.

194852895_1324276131288467_3368773981867079545_n

▼ For the magical word shape, I painted it with acrylic paint in black. After the black paint dried, I also added some dots with bright yellow, blue and pink colors using a paint brush for extra touches.

195173218_332426325061859_2937982154808231744_n

▼ Here, I painted the mouse head in black as well. Wait until the paint is dry, then use patterned papers and stickers to decorate around the mouse head shape.

▼ For the wood frame, I gave it a coat of embossing powder by using a watermark ink pad, detailed white embossing powder and a heat gun. Then, I applied 0.25 inch double-sided foam tape on the back of the scallop frame to adhere to the back frame, so a photo can slide into the frame.

Thank you for stopping by today! It's so fun that we can pick a frame and a theme to create our own home decor pieces. You may check HERE for all the new releases. Have a blessed day!

Clear Scraps Slimline Albums--Mermaid Tales

Hi there everyone!  Laura here with you today to share some summer vibes with you in a

project created using one of the new Clear Scraps Slimline Albums!!

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales(1)The Wood Wave Slimline Album gives the perfect base to create an album for all of

those summer pictures of the lake, the beach, the pool, whatever!

The cover is different patterned papers torn to create a wave look that adds some

texture to the front of the album too and then one of the Clear Scraps shakers,

the Mini Shaker Fin, is the perfect embellishment.  I painted the top frame using kind 

of an ombre look in different shades of aqua, and traced the tail shape on a beachy

patterned paper for the base piece, then filled the shaker with sparkly sequins in pretty

ocean colors to fit the theme of my mini album.

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales close up 1(1)

The next pages are covered with more patterned papers in shades of blue, aqua, and

patterns that made me think of a pool, or the beach.  The pictures and a few embellishments

were added to complete the page.  I love the larger size in these slimline albums, it gives you

a lot of extra room to add more pictures or embellish with a lot of fun stickers and such!

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales close up 2(1)

There is a lot of room to fit at least 2 pictures, and even full size pictures!

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales close up 3(1)

You can keep the pictures straight, or angle them--again, plenty of room!

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales close up 4(1)

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales close up 5(1)

For the last page, I had already traced the mermaid tail on

some patterned paper that reminded me of mermaid tail scales.

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales back(1)

These were glued onto the back of the album at different angles,

then trimmed along the edge of the album, and after they were glued to the

album, and I went around the edges with some glitter glue to give it

just a little of that mermaid sparkle.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Minnie Mouse Magic wall hanging

Hello Crafty Friends!

I'm Dana and I'm back today to share a home decor wall hanging project.  I think this would be perfect to hang in a little girl's bedroom or maybe give as a gift. I'm using Clear Scraps 12x12 tray Mouse Click Here and mini shaker bow Click Here

20210515_115336

To start remove your printer tray pieces from the bag. We'll be painting our top piece first. I used acrylic paints in pastel pink and patina. Apply pink paint on the bottom section of your tray. And patina paint on the ears. Paint along the sides. Set aside to dry. 

20210515_140145

Next I chose my coordinating papers for decorating my tray. The papers I chose are from Frank Garcia's "Just like Magic" paper collection. But you can use whatever style or pattern you'd like. I took the bottom piece from my tray, traced around the two ears with a pencil, then cut them out. Adhere your pieces onto each ear with glue. I like to use a strong bonding glue such as Beacon 3 in 1. Then take the chipboard layer with the window sections and trace all your base papers to fit inside each section. Apply with glue. Trim around each ear, using a x-acto knife. Then distress any rough edges till smooth. Then glue this onto your bottom piece of your tray. 

Take your bottom shaker bow piece and repeat the same process covering with paper etc...Let dry. 

20210516_114750

Next take your top shaker piece and cover with pink glitter. Let dry. Once it's dry you're ready to fill your shaker. I chose Clear Scraps Butterfly medley Click Here and Heart Love Click Here shaker fillers. Place your filler elements onto the bottom shaker piece. Carefully glue each shaker piece on top of the other. Remember to peel off the protective film on both sides of the acrylic shaker layer, before adhering. Finally add your top piece. Set aside to dry. Do not move or shake until it's throughly dry. 

20210516_142630

Now we are ready to decorate each section of our tray. I fussy cut some images from the ephermera sheet, inked the edges and applied to my tray with foam dots. This adds dimension to your project. I added some little star stickers in scattered sections of my tray.  I cut out some tickets and stapled them together before adhering to my tray. Then added some flowers onto the bottom right area on my tray. Tucked in a few pearls, heart stickers and butterfly. When finished decorating each section, adhere all your remaining chipboard layers onto your tray with glue. Don't forget to peel off the protective film on both sides of the acrylic sheet, before gluing. 

To finish your tray, glue your shaker bow at the top between both ears. Then hot glue a piece of tulle for hanging.

Clear Scraps--3D Frameables--Farmhouse Welcome

Hi there everybody!  Laura is here with you today, and can you believe that summer

is right around the corner?  And even better--it's Clear Scraps new release time!

Adorable newness is here in the store!  You can find details under the "What's New"

tab on the website, and today I've got a project to share, using the new 3D Frameables!

Clear_Scraps_Changeable Frameable_Farmhouse Welcom

These new frames are a blast to create with!  You choose your base, I chose to use the

base with the deco frame, which you can find HERE.  I decided to paint it using gray

acrylic paint, and then dabbed on some white paint to give the frame a distressed

farmhouse look.  I used paint on the base also, but you could trace this onto some

pretty patterned paper and cut it out to fit as well.  Next up was to decide which set

of extras to use.  I used the Word n Shape Welcome Jar.  Perfect with these farmhouse

patterned papers and stickers too!

Clear_Scraps_Changeable Frameable_Farmhouse Welcom(1)

Here you can see the frame a little better.  I also painted the word "welcome" using

black acrylic paint.  It really makes the word pop against the background.

Clear_Scraps_Changeable Frameable_Farmhouse Welcom(2)

And then that adorable little jar!!  So many things you can do here, I just kept it

simple.  I painted the jar with blue and gray acrylic paint, brushed on a little black

soot distress ink, and then added paper and a sticker so it looks a little

and a sticker, so its a little like a "label" on the jar.  Twine and a sweet tag finish

off this little embellishment and then the frame was finished off with some

patterned paper and stickers--or you can always pop a picture in there too!

Then you slide all the pieces right into your base.  So easy, so cute!

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure to check out all the options

available for these frames!!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  3D Frameables  Word n Shape Welcome Jar,

Base with Deco Frame.

Other:  acrylic paint: gray, white, black, twine, foam tape,

black distress ink, Carta Bella Farm to Table papers and stickers.


Apple Mini Shaker Home Decor

Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog to share an end of the school year project I  created using a few of Clear Scraps fabulous products!  School is out for the summer here in Central Illinois and I  thought this home decor project would be cute either as a teacher gift or to show off a last day of school photo!  I  used the new Apple Mini Shaker Shape as the star of my creation and will show you the techniques I  used.  

Clear_Scraps_Apple_Mini_Shaker

I  began with the Circle Medium DIY Pallet Shape and painted the front using black acrylic paint.  I   made sure I  added paint to the outside edges as well as in between the slats.  

Clear_Scraps_Apple_Mini_Shaker2

I    set aside the pallet to dry to work on assembling my shaker.  Using red chalk paint, I  painted the top chipboard frame, as well as the edges of the two inside frames.  

Clear_Scraps_Apple_Mini_Shaker3

Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I   affixed school themed patterned paper to the front of the chipboard base.  I    cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife and sanding tool (FYI, you can purchase this same sanding tool through the Clear Scraps shop).

Clear_Scraps_Apple_Mini_Shaker4

I    adhered my middle chipboard frames to the base then added colorful chunky sequins to the center.  Next, I  was ready to affix the acrylic overlay.  Last, the top chipboard frame goes on. I  added two school themed die cuts to the front for accent.  

Clear_Scraps_Apple_Mini_Shaker5

I    adhered red dot paper to the center slat followed by ledger paper and a fun colorful frame. I  then added more die cuts to accent before adhering my shaker to the front of the pallet. 

Clear_Scraps_Apple_Mini_Shaker6

Using my Big Bite, I punched holes at each corner of the pallet to thread ribbon to hang my project.  You can also use string or forego adding a hanger.

Floral Acrylic Phone Stand

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here sharing a new phone stand I created using the Regular Acrylic Phone Stand.

Acrylic-phonestand-clearscraps-rinea-6-steph-ackerman

The Regular Acrylic Phone Stand, as well as the other acrylic versions and the wood versions, can be decorated in so many different ways.  Your creativity is not limited - consider painting them, stenciling them, covering them with pattern paper, etc.  I decided to decorate my acrylic stand with a sweet potted flower arrangement created with a Tutti Designs Die and Rinea Foiled Papers.

Acrylic-phonestand-clearscraps-rinea-3-steph-ackerman

I die cut the potted flower arrangement from 3 different colors of Rinea Foiled Papers - Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper for the flower pot; Marigold/Glossy Foiled Paper for the flowers and Jade Starstruck for the leaves.  I was able to cut all 3 layers with one pass with my die cut machine.

Acrylic-phonestand-clearscraps-rinea-2-steph-ackerman

Now the fun part was cutting apart the potted flowers and reassembling in the appropriate colors.
Using the Marigold layer as the base, I added the silver pot and the green stems and leaves.

Acrylic-phonestand-clearscraps-rinea-4-steph-ackerman

Using a clear adhesive, I adhered the potted flower arrangement to the acrylic base.
 
Acrylic-phonestand-clearscraps-rinea-6-steph-ackerman
It's a perfect size for my phone, and even looks pretty sitting on the counter.

Summer 3D Frameables

Howdy!

Tami here on the blog with you today to share a project using one of Clear Scraps' new 3D Frameables.

Have you seen them? It's a unique frame concept that lets you change out themes to match whatever photo you want to use.

You pick out a base and a frame design - there are 3 to choose from. Then pick out a theme from 9 different ones to compliment your photo.

Now you can have a year round frame that you can change with the seasons or holidays!

I love the Summer theme with it's Flip Flops wood shape. It was perfect to use with the pic I had of my son playing in the sprinkler...

Frameables_summer_clear_scraps_wood_flipflop_tami_sanders

I used printed paper to cover the base and the flip flops. I used a contrasting paper on the back of the flip flops to make the straps stand out. Clear Scraps' Sanding Stick makes the process easier. The tip gets between the dips in the scallop frame. The Sanding Stick comes in 2 sizes and has replaceable belts which you can move on the stick so that you always have a nice fresh sanding area.

I inked the frame and the Summer word using Oxide inks in an ombre pattern.

I wanted a little more color around the frame, so I added dots that I punched from printed paper.

My photo was also a little slim for the square opening. So I matted it on cardstock and added a coordinating sticker to fill the space.

If you'd like to use your frame year round and change out the themes, you could paint or cover the base and frame with neutral colors.

Or maybe do a different base and frame combo for each season.

I think these would also make great gifts! If you are looking for a unique wedding gift, consider making a set for the new couple. And father's day is coming up soon!

Thank you for visiting the Clear Scraps' blog; please come back soon to see what projects the other talented designers have to share with you!

Supplies:

Clear Scraps: 3D Frameables Base and Scallop Frame and Summer theme and Large Sanding Stick

Other: Bo Bunny Printed Papers, Ranger Distress Oxide Inks, Clear Snap: Stylus & Tips, Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry and 3/4" circle punch

Summer Sweet Layout

Hi Crafty Friends!

Dana here!  I'm here to share a layout project with you today. I'm using the new Clear Scraps popsicle shaker for this project. Isn't it the cutest?  I think it's perfect for decorating all those summer layouts. Click Here to get yours!

20210513_150925

The papers I'm using for my layout are from Simple stories Summer Farmhouse. 

To begin we will start working on our shaker. Remove pieces from the package. I took one of the journaling cards from this collection, to use for my shaker background. Trace around your bottom shaker piece with a pencil. Cut out your image and using Beacon 3 in 1 glue, adhere the paper to your bottom shaker base. Then take x-acto knife trim around your shaker shape. Distress your edges till smooth and even. Set aside.

Next I took some red acrylic paint and painted the top piece of my shaker and around all the sides of my other shaker pieces. Let dry. Then I  took a piece of paper resembling wood and glued to the bottom handle of my top shaker piece. Trim and distress edges as you did previously. Now you're ready to glue your shaker pieces together. After gluing the first 2 pieces, you can carefully add any shaker filler elements in the center.  I'm using just one of the many shaker fillers available from Clear Scraps. Click Here to see them all. Then before gluing the acrylic piece, make sure to peel off the protective film on both sides. Then lastly, glue on your top piece. Do not shake or move your shaker until it's throughly dry. 

20210514_141642

Next we are ready to make our scrapbook page. I chose a background paper from the collection and a photo. I fussy cut out some banner flags, and the I love Summer heart. I chose some clouds and a sun from the empherma pack. I always like to play around with the placement of my embellishments before gluing them onto my page. I took some twine and adhered my banner flags on top. 

20210514_160913

I matted my photo onto white cardstock, and acouple of coordinating papers from this collection. Then added some foam squares to the back of my photo mat before adhering to my scrapbook layout to give it more dimension. I added some foam dots to the I love Summer heart and adhered it onto the upper right corner of my photo. I adhered a crystal heart gem on the tab above my photo. Then finished adding a few colored enamel dots on the bottom right corner of the photo mat. 

I glued my shaker popsicle to the left of my photo. I added a few sentiment stickers to my bottom left corner of my layout.

Magical 3D Frameables

Hello and happy Friday!  It's Jennifer and I'm so happy to finally share one of the new 3D Frameables that were released this week! If you liked working with the Desktop Wood Frames, you are going to LOVE these! The base is very similar to the Desktop Frames except there are three slots.  And there  are  three different frames to choose from as well as a variety of themes!

For my project, I  have the Scallop Frame and Magical-Mouse Head Word N Shape which I painted both with acrylic paint.  The frames come with a top piece that adheres to the base shown. I knew that my photo would cover a large portion of the inside of the frame so I left the area bare.   I  also painted the top piece of the base of the Frameable.

Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I affixed patterned paper to the front of the frame, as well as the Mouse Head.  I cut away excess paper with scissors as well as used an x-acto  knife and sanding tools.  

IMG_8762

I added small stickers and die cuts to my elements to give extra color but did not want to over burden my pieces with too many embellishments.

Here you can see the frame assembled together. There is a portion on the bottom that you will slide into the back slot on your base.

 You simply slide each element into the slots to display. The best thing is that frames and shapes can be changed out depending on the time of year or whatever you feel like showing off! Thanks for stopping by the blog! Be sure to visit "What's New" the Clear Scraps shop to see all of the new themes of the 3D Frameables!  The combinations are endless!  Have a great day!

3D Frameable Collection Welcome Home

Hello happy crafters! It's Maya here on the blog today to share a home decor project I created using our new releases - 3D frameables collection! There are three frame shapes and different themes with a word and a shape. It's so fun that we can pick a frame and a theme to create our own home decor pieces. Let's check it out!

▼ On this project, I used the scallop frame and welcome and jar wood pieces.

▼ To start this project, I traced the wood bases on a patterned paper, cut them out with a carving craft knife, and adhered to the bases using tacky glue.

▼ For the jar wood shape, I decided to cover it with a floral patterned paper and decorated it with some stickers. I also wrote down "Home is wherever I'm with you" with a black pen and tied a bow using a piece of twine for a finishing touch.

▼ Here I painted the wood word welcome with acrylic paint in pink.

▼ For the wood frame, I gave it a coat of embossing powder by using a watermark ink pad, detailed white embossing powder and a heat gun.

▼ Then, I applied 0.25 inch double sided foam tape on the back of the scallop frame to adhere to the back frame, so a photo can slide into the frame. As you can see, I also backed the back frame with a big LOVE and a drown flower.

Patriotic Stars DIY Wood Shapes

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here to share a home decor project I created using the Stars DIY Wood Shapes!  It's been awhile since I've made a banner and thought this would be perfect for days like today as well as the 4th of July. The DIY Wood Shapes come in packs of three so you can use together one at a time. 

Clear_Scraps_Stars_DIY_Wood_Shapes

I began by painting my Wood Shapes with chalk paint in red. I did not worry too much about coverage and allowed some of the wood to show through. 


Clear_Scraps_Stars_DIY_Wood_Shapes2

Once my paint was dry, I took a tea light candle and applied a generous amount of wax to the surface of the wood.  If your desired end result is to have a more distressed look you will want to apply a large amount of wax. 


Clear_Scraps_Stars_DIY_Wood_Shapes3

 

I then applied off white chalk paint in sections, using a paint scraper to remove excess paint before drying.  I did go back with a bit of sand paper to the surface for additional distressing. 

Clear_Scraps_Stars_DIY_Wood_Shapes4

Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I applied patterned paper to a portion of each star followed by adding embellishments. 

Clear_Scraps_Stars_DIY_Wood_Shapes5

For the center star, I painted the Star DIY Wood Frame and backed it with patterned paper.  I  then added some colorful bakers twine and adding a die cut before adhering with the Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. 

Clear_Scraps_Stars_DIY_Wood_Shapes6

I used a punch to place holes in each end of the stars to string ribbon through in order to hang my project!

Flower Garden Card and Tag

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Dana and I'm back to share a card and matching tag I creates to hopefully inspire you! I love sending my friends and family homemade cards. So I thought why not create a matching tag too! I'm using Clear Scraps Chipboard tags Click Here

20210413_145507

And for my card I chose to use one of Clear Scraps Chipboard wordsClick Here

20210414_140222

I fell in love with Carta Bella new Flower Garden collection so I thought this would be perfect for Spring!

For my tag: I traced my tag shape twice onto one of the papers in this collection. These tags measure 3.75 x 6.75 inches. For this project I only one of the tags. I'll save the other three to use on future projects. Cut out your tag shape, punch a hole at the top. Adhere your paper to the front and back of your chipboard tag. I prefer using Beacons 3 in 1 glue. It's fast drying and adheres quickly.  Then I took one of the journaling cards, inked the edges and added foam dots to the back, before adhering to the center of my tag. I glued a matching chipboard over the marching journaling card image. Added a sticker border to the bottom of my tag, along with a sticker flower on the left side (I used foam dots to adhere flower) 20210413_183902

To finish off my tag, I matted a sticker sentiment onto green coordinating paper adhered this at the top with foam dots. Adhered 3 enamel dots to the right side of my journaling card. Tied some matching ribbons through the hole at the top!

For my card: My card measures 6x6 inches. I added the coordinating green paper over the base of my card with glue. For the next two card layers I cut my papers slightly smaller and matted then onto my card using foam tape. This adds dimension and a nice layered look to your card. Set your card aside for now. 

Next we will decorate our chipboard "Love" words. I chose to apply some Art Alchemy Impasto paint (Mint) to my chipboard surface, using a slight pouncing motion. It adds a nice textured look. Let dry.

Next I chose one of ephemera cards sentiment, inked the edges with a light blue distress ink. Then added some foam dots to the back and adhered to the top center of my card. I fussy cut a few flowers from my sticker sheet and pop dot them onto my ephermera card. I added some dazzle stickers to my flower centers. 

Now take your Love chipboard word and adhere with glue to the bottom of your card. I took another empherma word title, cut it apart, inked the edges and glued on the bottom right side of my card. To finish off my card, I pop dot a flower pot above my grows here sentiment. Added a few enamel dots.

Seashell Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends! It's Maya here on the blog today to share this beach themed shaker card featuring the mini shaker shell. I am a big fan of all the shakers and I enjoy using them to create shaker cards, turning them into something unique!

P1210332

▼ The shaker pack includes 1 chipboard back, 3 chipboard forms, and 1 acrylic divider.

20210422_131737

▼ I started by decorating the shell shaker. First, I laid a chipboard form on a patterned paper, traced the shape using a pencil, cut it out, and adhered to the chipboard back using tacky glue.

20210422_143917

▼ Here I adhered two chipboard forms to the chipboard back and placed the sequins. Then, remove protective films on both sides of the acrylic divider and glue it to the chipboard form.

20210422_144921

▼ Next, I gave a coat of white embossing powder to the chipboard form and used tacky glue to adhere it to the top of the shell.

20210422_154318

▼ Here you can see all the ephemera that I fussy cut from a patterned paper. I used them to layer and decorate around the card.

20210422_165324

▼ The card size is 6.5 x 5 inches. I used white card stock and covered it with a wood grain patterned paper for the background. And I just layered and glued all the elements and the shell shaker to finish the card.
