Christmas-Tree 3D Frameable

Hello friends! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  It is officially the Christmas season and today I'm sharing one of the new 3D Frameables using the Christmas-Tree Word N Shape.  The 3D Frameables are perfect to showcase favorite photos and you can switch out the Word N Shapes as well as the frames.  

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_Tree_3DFrameable

Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I covered the Scallop Frame and Base as well as the Tree in my Word N Shape with different patterned papers.  I cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife and sanding tool.  

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_Tree_3DFrameable2

Again using my Beacon, I adhered the two oval pieces of the base together as shown.  

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_Tree_3DFrameable3

I applied white acrylic paint to the Christmas Word as well as the Frame base. 

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_Tree_3DFrameable4

Then using Distress Oxide Ink in Lucky Clover, I blended ink into the bottom edge of my word. 

Clear_Scraps_Chrstmas_Tree_3DFrameable6

Next, I secured my 4x4 photo to the back of my frame using double sided tape. I then adhered the two frame pieces with Beacon Adhesive.   I find that using clips to hold the two pieces together as the adhesive dries is helpful. 

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_Tree_3DFrameable5

I affixed stickers and smaller embellishments to the frame as well as the tree.

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_Tree_3DFrameable7

I did add white acrylic paint around the edges of the tree giving it a distressed look. I wanted it to have a bit of a snowy effect.   I did the same on the frame and base.

Here is a close up of the Christmas Word with the blended distress oxide.

Easy July 4th Card with USA Chipboard

Hi everybody! Leslie here, taking a break from the Autumn/Fall and Christmas projects to share something a little different. This July 4th card features our USA Chipboard Embellishment. I love all things Americana and this chipboard embellishment was just the ticket for a super easy Independence Day card! 

2021_1107005

I cut a standard size A2 side-folding card base from ivory cardstock along with a layering panel from patterned paper, and rounded the bottom right corner. I adhered the patterned paper and a trimmed piece of patriotic ephemera to the left side, and added a piece of skinny red washi tape at the seam. I adhered medium blue and red cardstock to the back of the USA Chipboard Embellishment and then ran a black alcohol marker around the outside edge. I adhered the chipboard to the card front along with scrabble tiles from my ephemera stash to complete the front.

2021_1107006

I cut the inside panel from ivory cardstock and embellished it with the patterned paper used on the front and a piece of skinny red washi tape. I stamped the sentiment in blue ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

Clear Scraps 3D Frameables--Country Christmas Reversible Frame

Hey there everyone!  Laura is here to share a holiday project with you today!

The project I'm sharing can be used for Christmas, and/or winter--all the details below!Clear Scraps_3D Frameable_Country Christmas Reversible Frame(1)This cute frame is one of the Clear Scraps 3D Frameables!  Did you know you can mix

and match which frame and which inserts you'd like to use?  For this projectI used the

Base with Square Frame choice and the Word n' Shape Christmas Tree.  Great to keep this

frame neat and classic looking with the red, black and white.  The base, frame, and the word

Christmas, were painted with black or red acrylic paint.  Then I used a sponge to dab white

 paint around the edges and on the top of the word to give it a frosty winter feel.  It's hard to

see in the picture, but there is a sprinkling of sparkle on the white of the word also.  Then

the tree was traced onto buffalo plaid, cut out and glued on.  I added a picture, the word

merry, a couple of enamel dots, and it's done!  Or is it?.........

Clear Scraps_3D Frameable Country Christmas Reversible Frame_side 2(1)Well this looks like a different frame--well, almost.....haha!  Instead of gluing the square

frame into place, I decided to keep this reversible!  The slots in the base are nice and snug,

so if you want to change things up you can!  It also makes this type of decoration super

easy to store!  I just covered the back with the same buffalo plaid, and added one of the

awesome Clear Scraps Mini Snowflake Shakers!  It was painted white and glittered up as

well, and I added the Winter Sequins and Sprinkles Winter Flake Mix from the Clear

Scraps store.  Want to see the other great mixes and sequins available, look HERE!

Autumn Days Acrylic Layout

Hello my Crafty Friends!

Dana here! The leaves are changing and full of color! Cool Chris days of Autumn are upon us.  I have a layout project to share today in memory of my mother. I'll be using Clear Scraps Acrylic 12x12 sheet Click Here and Maple chipboard branch Click Here 

Using the acrylic sheet creates a sturdy base and create a unique one of a kind layout! You can use a variety of inks, stamps or rub-ons as I'm using in this project. 

First off I chose a patterned paper for my background.  The papers I'm using are from 49 & Market Vintage Artistry "In the Leaves" collection. I cut down to to size leaving a 3/4 inch of acrylic visible. Before adhering your paper to the acrylic,  you must peel off the protective film on both sides of your sheet. Now adhere your paper centered on top of your acrylic sheet. 

20211019_141654

Now taking some rub-on images I applied in scattered areas around the edge of my acrylic sheet layout. 

20211019_141601

20211019_141534

Now take your Clear Scraps Maple Branch chipboard embellishment, remove the staple and then I applied some of my favorite Finnibair pastes in Gold, Brown and Rust using a stiff brush and a pouncing motion to apply my pastes to the branches,and leaves. I love the texture it creates. Let dry. Then I cut apart acouple of the leaves from my chipboard branch. We'll be using these leaves in scattered areas on our layout. 

20211019_142319

Next I chose a 5x7 photo as my main focal point, and adhered a chipboard sticker frame on top of my photo using foam tape. I also applied foam tape along the edges of the frame before adhering to my layout. This adds dimension. I chose a ephermera sentiment flag and applied to my frame with foam dots, at the upper left edge of my frame.

Now decide on what embellishments you want to add to decorate your layout. I used some vellum pieces, another ephermera sentiment, and some butterflies. Take your Clear Scraps Maple branch and apply around the bottom of your layout using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. I applied some of my vellum pieces hanging over the acrylic edge of my layout. Then added some epoxy dot stickers along the top edge and right side of my layout.

Christmas Gnome Shaker Card

Hello hello, Clear Scraps friends! It's Maya here on the blog today to share a festive Christmas card featuring the mini shaker gnome. Have you started your Christmas cards yet? Can't believe Christmas will be here in a month!

P1210849_post

▼ I chose the cardstock with size 5" x 6.5". I started by adding the brick wall stencil on top of the card, securing it with low-tack tape, and then adding the Oxide Distress inks (festive berries) on the card with the round blending tool.

20211112_162451

▼ For the gnome shaker, I started by tracing the base on patterned paper, cutting it out, and adhering the cut-out piece on the chipboard back as the background. Next, I adhered two layers of chipboard forms to the back, placed the confetti and some sequins, and glued the layer of the acrylic divider. For the chipboard top, I painted the beard in white and the hat in red with acrylic paint. After the paint dried, I adhered the chipboard top to the shaker by using tacky glue.

20211113_115930

▼ Here is the finished look of the Christmas gnome! It's just so cute!

P1210856

▼ To decorate around the card, I used the stickers & ephemera from the Echo Park Paper with My Favorite Christmas Collection.

Fall Slimline Acrylic Album

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share another one of the fabulous Slimline Albums with you!  I love the fall colors and creating projects all about autumn!  For today's project, I used the Scallop Acrylic Slimline Album and am going to show you the techniques I used!  

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline

After removing the protective film from both sides, I applied four different colors of alcohol ink to the front cover.  I began by applying the lightest color (yellow) at the top followed by using the darkest (rust) at the bottom. Alcohol ink will dry quickly on the acrylic which is a nice quality! 

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline2

Using the Scallop Chipboard Borders, I painted one with white acrylic paint followed by a coat of crackle effect. 

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline3

After my crackle effect was dry, I applied a light coat of chalk paint in green.  You will notice the white acrylic paint shows through and gives a nice distressed look. I then used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to Adhere my Chipboard Border to the front cover of my album. 

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline4

I used the Mason Jar Chipboard Embellishment Shapes to accent my album. I painted the chipboard frame with white acrylic paint and covered the base with patterned paper. I then added die cut and chipboard hearts to "fill" the jar.  Last, I added some bakers twine to the top. 

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline5

For my inside pages, I cut 4 x 11.75 inch patterned paper for my background and added spots for journaling or photos.  With the Slimline Albums you have plenty of room to add multiple photos or extra embellishments (or lots of both)!  

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline6

I love to layer my embellishments around journaling...here I plan to list favorite things about fall.  

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline7

For this page, I created a pocket to insert journaling cards.  I attached tabbed stickers with a stapler for ease of pulling my cards out of the pocket. 

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline8

For the next two pages, I used chipboard frames that were in the collection I used to hold future photos.

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline9

Clear_Scraps_Scallop_Acrylic_Slimline10

For my last page, I  simply used cardstock as a place holder for a future photo.  I often like to place another pattern under my photo to add color as well as dimension.

Fall Decor with Pumpkin Stencil

Hola!

Tami here with you on the Clear Scraps Blog today with another Fall project to share with you.

Is your house all decked out in fall colors? Are you hosting Thanksgiving Dinner? Do you need a table decoration? Or if you are attending rather than hosting Thanksgiving, do you need a gift for your hosts?

This decor piece is quick and easy thanks to Clear Scraps 6" Pumpkin Stencil...

Clear_scraps_pumpkin_stencil_wood_deco_thanksgiving_fall_decor_tami_sanders

I used the Deco Wood Shape as a base and added the Blessed Chipboard Word Title to accent the piece.

Let me show you how I made it step by step...

First I used diluted brown paint to stain the wood base, then after it dried, I used a sanding block to distress it...

Next I mixed a little orange paint into some modeling paste. Then I taped the pumpkin stencil to the wood and used a pallet knife to apply the modeling paste to the pumpkin portion of the stencil. HINT: also tape off any areas close to the pumpkin that you don't want orange. Modeling paste was tinted brown and green to do the stem and vine...

Once all the modeling paste has been applied, lift the stencil and let the paste dry. After it is dry, fill in the pumpkin using a lighter shade of orange...

Clear_scraps_pumpkin_stencil_wood_deco_thanksgiving_fall_decor_tami_sanders_7

Paint the Blessed Chipboard Word using Green Paint, then adhere to the base...

A ribbon bow was added to the upper left corner to finish of the piece.

Clear Scraps: 6" Pumpkin Stencil, Deco Wood Shape and Blessed Chipboard Word Title

Cozy Days Printer Tray Wall Hanging

Hi there Crafty Friends!

Dana here and I'm back on the Clear Scraps blog today to share a Fall home decor wall hanging project using Clear Scraps Printer Deco trays. Click Here 

20211016_124316

These printer trays are so much fun to create to match any season, or style. I have so many fall favorites,  that I decided to make that my focus for my designing my printer tray! I'm using Simple Stories adorable paper collection "Cozy Days" to decorate my printer tray. 

To start, remove all your pieces from your package. I took some taupe acrylic paint and applied the paint to the top chipboard piece from your tray.  You can use any color of paint, glitter, stamps etc...you prefer. Set aside to dry. 

20211016_163331

Now choose whatever papers you'd like to use to decorate the sections of your tray. I traced and cut out all the base papers for each section of my tray. I used a variety of patterned papers and journaling cards. Glue to the back of the bottom chipboard base, making sure you line up all edges and your images are centered evenly. I recommend using Beacon 3 in 1 glue to adhere your chipboard layers together. 

20211017_124332

Now glue your next chipboard layer over the previous one. Then we are ready to decorate the inside sections of your tray. I like to use a variety of different embellishments but you can do as much or less as you like. Just let your creativity flow! 

For my top section of my printer tray, I fussy cut out some images from my various journaling cards and papers,  inked around the edges and used pop dots to adhere to my base. The sentiments I cut from the papers and glued above my images.

For the middle section I trimmed and adhered a Pumpkin n spice journaling card to the back.  I fussy cut a pumpkin and adhered with foam dots over the matching  pumpkin image on my journaling card. On the right and left sections in the middle I adhered 2 more journaling cards. 

On the remaining bottom section, I fussy cut more of these cute images and adhered onto the base. Added a few sticker sentiments to finish.

Next take your acrylic layer and peel off the protective film on both sides. Carefully glue your acrylic layer onto the previous layer. Finally glue your top chipboard layer in place. I fussy cut a piece of pie and a flower/vase  and glued along the right and left sides of my tray. I took a few Dazzle stickers and added to my flower pot centers. I also added a few sticker sentiments and hearts to decorate scattered areas on the front of my tray. 

To finish I added some tulle to the back of my tray for hanging!

Fall Wall Decor

Hello Clear Scraps friends! It's Maya here on the blog today to share a fall wall decor featuring the wood fall collection with three cute wood shapes: an apple, a maple leaf, and a pumpkin. I thought it will be so cute to use them to create a wall decor project!

P1210860_post

▼ I started by laying the wood shapes on the patterned papers I chose for the background, tracing the shapes with a pencil, and cutting them out with scissors.

20211113_141037

▼ Here as you can see, I adhered the cut-out paper to the wood shape using tacky glue. I also blended orange color to the border by using Distress Oxide Ink (Ripe Persimmon) along with a blending tool.

20211113_141221

▼ Next, time to decorate each wood shape! I cut out the ephemera from the P13 Paper Product with the Autumn Collection for decoration. I tried to layer the pieces in different ways till I'm satisfied with the layering. It was so fun!

20211113_140946

▼ Adding depth to the layering, I applied double-sided adhesive foam to some decorative pieces. Last, I punched two holes on top of each wood shape by using We R Memory Keepers' punch tool and threaded the twine in between each wood shape.

Thanksgiving Card with Pumpkins Chipboard

Hi Ya'll

Tami here on the blog with you today with a card I'd like to show you.

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Do you have all your recipes pulled out and your shopping list made?

Do you share your bounty with any relatives, friends or neighbors? How about making a card to go along with your offering.

Clear Scraps makes a LOT of chipboard embellishments and they can help you pull a card together in a snap!

I used the Pumpkins Chipboard Embellishment to make this Thanksgiving Card...

Clear_scraps_pumpkins_chipboard_embellishment_thanksgiving_card_tami_sanders

To make the card, I started with a 10 X 5 piece of kraft cardstock that was folded in half to make the card base.

A 4 3/4 square piece of green printed paper was adhered at the center for a mat. Then a strip of printed paper was added down the left side. I liked the pattern that was on the paper, so I cut around the design on the top of the strip.

To embellish the chipboard pumpkins, I used Scribble Sticks to color the pumpkin, stem and leaves, then used a damp paintbrush to smooth out the colors. The wash of water also brightens the colors.

I covered the solid pumpkin with printed paper and backed the open pumpkin with a coordinating paper. I used the Sanding Stick to smooth away the excess paper around the edges of the chipboard.

I added a sticker for the sentiment and adhered a small paper banner to the end of it.

I used Foam Tape to adhere the open pumpkin to the card.

Printed papers and chipboard pieces were lightly distressed using brown chalk ink.

Clear Scraps Stencils--Happy BeeDay Acrylic Card

Hi there everyone!  Laura here with you today to share a quick and easy acrylic card!

Clear_Scraps_Happy BeeDay Card_2nd(1)

This card is a quick and easy card but a lot of fun to play with the layers to create

whatever look you'd like!  The cover of the card is a piece of on of the Clear Scraps

Acrylic Sheets.  It's cut to the usual 4&1/4" by 5&1/2" A2 size card.  To make the back

you cut a piece of cardstock or paper (I used a honeycomb patterned paper to stick

with the theme of the card) that is just a half inch wider (4&1/2") so you can create a

little flap to wrap around the front of the card and attach the acrylic front piece to.

Clear_Scraps_Happy BeeDay Card(1)

This picture shows the clear front panel a little more clearly.  I wanted to keep with

 the bee theme, so I used the Clear Scraps 6" Spiro Flower stencil.  It has a honeycomb

 look to it.  I used alcohol inks dabbed on over the stencil to create the image on the acrylic.

Clear_Scraps_Happy BeeDay_close up 1(1)

Then to give it more of a mixed media look, I went back in along all the edges of the

acrylic card front and around the edges of the stenciled image and dabbed on more ink.

It created a fun look that goes well with the honeycomb paper that peeks through from

behind the acrylic layer.  Then I just added a strip of the honeycomb paper to the front

of the card, and a few stickers, then finished it off with a twine bow.  Cute, sweet and

my favorite part, super simple! 

 

Don't be afraid to play with the acrylic sheets!  They are so much fun to use paints,

stencils, inks, stencil pastes, markers, stamping (with staz on ink or similar) and

make for interesting cards, LO's or even home decor projects!

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

 

Supplies Used: 

Clear Scraps:  Acrylic Sheets, 6" Spiro Flower Stencil

Shoe-Themed Acrylic Tag Album!

Hi everybody! Leslie here, sharing a fun mini album created with our Acrylic Tag Album! This album documents the days long, long ago when I had a pair of shoes in every color imaginable to coordinate with every outfit! If you know me, you know I am passionate about two things: (1) fun folds and (2) shoes! Well, actually three things: (1) cats (we rescue), (2) fun folds and (3) shoes! ;)

2021_1105001

This was a super easy project and could be made for any theme. I cut different colors and patterns of paper for every page, hand-cut in a whimsical fashion, leaving just a tad bit of the clear acrylic showing on all edges. I die cut labels and stitched ovals for each page and layered the white stitched ovals on the label die cuts. I stamped different shoes (including boots and flip flops) with sentiments on the ovals and colored them with alcohol markers to coordinate with the patterned paper on that page. I created hole reinforcements with two circle punches and tied the pages together with purple wrinkled ribbon embellished with a shoe charm from my stash. I added tiny iridescent gemstones to each page to finish the album.

Meow-Cat 3D Frameable

Hello and happy Saturday!  It's finally the weekend and I hope you are doing something you enjoy! Today I'm sharing one of the new 3D Frameables released by Clear Scraps this year! There are a large variety of themes/holidays to go with the Wood Frames + Base.  As long as I can remember we've had cats as pets!  So I was excited to see the new Meow-Cat Word N Shape!  I paired it with the Deco Frame and will show you my techniques!

Clear_Scraps_Cat_Meow_3DFrameable

I began by using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to affix patterned paper to the Deco Frame as well as the larger oval of the Wood Base.  I  cut away excess paper with scissors and an x-acto knife. I then used my sanding stick to smooth edges between the paper and wood. 

Clear_Scraps_Cat_Meow_3DFrameable2

Using orange chalk paint, I  applied paint to the outside edges of the frame base as well as to the smaller oval on the base. 


Clear_Scraps_Cat_Meow_3DFrameable3

Next, I  painted each piece of the Meow-Cat Word N Shape with grey and red chalk paint respectfully.  

Clear_Scraps_Cat_Meow_3DFrameable4

While my Word N Shape pieces were drying, I assembled  my frame using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive  and clipped both pieces together to ensure a tight seal

Clear_Scraps_Cat_Meow_3DFrameable5

Again using my Beacon Adhesive, I adhered my base together as shown. 

Clear_Scraps_Cat_Meow_3DFrameable6

Showing some close up shots of the Meow-Cat Word N Shape!  I added a cute bow to the Cat by using a punch I had in my stash. 

Clear_Scraps_Cat_Meow_3DFrameable7

I used pop dots to affix stickers to the Deco Frame as well as accented with red/white bakers twine.

Thanksgiving Recipe Chipboard Album

Hello everyone!  Thanksgiving is getting closer and closer, isn't it?  I am excited that this year my daughter will be hosting from her first apartment.  She is excited to try out cooking a turkey dinner for the very first time!  She has watched me cook this dinner many times over the years, and it made me think of all the great memories of those holidays.

CE0A15E2-6CA0-452B-9E86-16A14EFEB965

I was inspired by this and decided I would put together a recipe book that would be part memories, and part recipes.  I'm going to give it to her as a keepsake, and I'm hoping to add her favorite recipes inside.  I wanted to make it so she could also add to it, so I'm going to be adding pockets to the book for her to stick in new recipes in the coming years.

E58003B7-4E62-4C0D-8653-F7C2B173FA27

I'm using the Chip Tab Slimline Album - this looked like a good size for her to store, so it wouldn't take up a lot of room, but would hold both recipe cards and pictures.  I've covered the pages with a variety of Thanksgiving prints from a scrapbooking pad, and used the matching stickers to decorate the tabs.

88FB1323-4CB8-4D9B-8C3C-77DE9E6F4030

For the cover, I've die cut the letters to spell 'recipe' in a letter set that has a drop shadow, in navy blue and white.  I've staggered this down the page, and left room in the open spaces to add additional die cuts, like an apron, turkey and a pie.  

In my collection at home, I've got lots of food and kitchen die cuts, so I was really excited to put these to use!  On the apron, I decided to give it some dimension by adding a piece of ribbon underneath it to look like the strings of the apron.

832C2306-77B1-4460-BEB6-54B664D2D810

On page 2, I've added a photo of my daughter helping me with turkey prep.  It's also got a pocket at the bottom and an empty recipe tag shaped like a gift tag. 

9FC46244-59EC-40F7-9754-1EF3CD677980

This was stamped with a set of recipe card stamps I had in my collection.  Later she can add to it as she wishes.  This pocket also has assorted dies, stickers and a doily for embellishment.

Page 3 is my favorite - I've always loved this picture, because it was my daughter's first Thanksgiving.  And, as you can see - we caught her at the perfect moment!

More stickers and another pocket are here as well.  Pages 4 and 5 are using more of the stickers and papers that came with my scrapbook pad set.

To assemble the book, I've decided to tie it together with assorted colors of twine.  My thought is that as the book gets bigger, she can swap it out for an expandable rings like the ones here, or add more pages.  This adds a colorful look and would look really cute on display in any kitchen!

Do you have favorite traditions during Thanksgiving, or other holidays you celebrate?  I hope this book inspires you to try an album like this for your next memory project.

Clear Scraps DIY Pallet--Our Hive Home Decor

Hey there everyone!  Laura here with you today to share a fun home decor project!

Clear_Scraps_DIY Square Pallet_Our Hive(1)

Once in a while it's fun to do something a little different instead of just a specific seasonal

project.  This one has a bit of a fall vibe, but could be used everyday too.  It starts with one

of the Clear Scraps DIY Medium Square Shapes.  These pallet shapes are the perfect base

for a home decor project.  They come in a variety of shapes (and sizes too!) but I think the

medium is my fave!  It's just the right size to display anywhere you'd want to set up a cute

little display.  If you'd like to see the other shapes available, you can find them HERE.

For this project, I covered the wooden slats with patterned paper that I inked around the

edges.  Super simple!  Then I started with the title on the top slat and built the other

stickers around there.  I used the "welcome friends" and Our Happy Family" stickers

around the title to make it a focal point on the project.

The circle dots wreath is a chipboard piece from Clear Scraps.  This one could

be used for so many different things.  I thought it made a nice addition to this decor

piece so I painted it with black acrylic paint and then added a few stickers to give it

a wreath feel like a wreath you'd have on your front door as a welcome.

If you'd like to explore more of the chipboard shapes, you can find them in the store

over on the Clear Scraps site right HERE.  You can find just about anything for any

holiday or occasion!  It's nice to have some of these basics (like the wreath/circle in

this project) on hand so you can pull them out to use them anytime you want that

little extra something on a project, card or LO.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Stop back soon for more inspiration!

Blessed 3D Frameable Home Decor project

Hello Craft Friends!

I'm Dana and I'm so happy to be back here on the Clear Scraps blog today. I love creating Home Decor projects and these new 3D Frameables are a perfect craft medium to get you started. For this project I'll be using Clear Scraps Base with the square frame Click Here and Blessed word and truck shape Click Here I think the truck is just so cute, don't you? 

20211013_130624

To start off, take out the 2 base pieces from your package. I chose to trace my wood bases onto patterned papers. But feel free to paint them if you like. The papers I'm using for this project are from Carta Bella Hello Autumn collection. After tracing,  cut them out and glue your papers onto both bases. I recommend Beacon 3 in 1 glue to adhere your papers to your base. Using an exacto knife, trim away any excess paper. Also make sure you cut out your 3 slots on top. You can smooth all edges with a sanding tool or distress tool. Make sure all your slots are clear of any excess paper. Then lining up your slots, glue the two base pieces together.

Next take out your Word/truck pieces from your package. I painted my Blessed words with Orange glitter acrylic paint. And for my truck I painted the body with Shamrock green acrylic paint. I used silver acrylic paint for the chrome bumper areas. Red for the back taillights. I applied brown acrylic paint to the back fenced area of the truck. Let dry. While your pieces are drying, I fussy cut some apples from one of the journaling cards and glued behind the wood fence at the back of the truck. Then I fussy cut the Farmers market sign, inked around the edges before adhering to the side of my truck. Paint the wheels of the truck with black acrylic paint.

 Now for the frame, I adhered a piece of patterned paper to the back piece of my frame. I left the bottom portion bare since this piece will slide into the base. The front frame piece, I traced onto another patterned paper and cut out. Glue to the front of your frame. Trim around the edges and cut out the inside of the frame. Now adhere your frame pieces together making sure to line up your top edges of your frame. 

I chose to use a journaling card instead of a photo inside. I applied foam dots to the back of my journaling card, inked around the edges and adhered to the center of my frame. I fussy cut acouple pumpkins and adhered them over the same image on my journaling card. Then added some glitter on the little pumpkins. 

To finish off my 3D frame I decorated with a few puffy stickers and chipboard Harvest sticker along the left edge of my frame.

Now just slide your 3 pieces into the three slots on your base. And it's finished! You now can display in any room in your Home! And these 3D Frameables come apart and are easy to store away or ship to surprise someone special!

Turkey Magnet Place Setting

Hi Clear Scraps friends!  Do you set a formal table for your guests at Thanksgiving?  I really enjoy decorating my dining room for this festive dinner.  I thought it would be fun to create a project that I can put at each place setting that is both decorative and can be given as a gift.  I wanted this one to be a bit more casual and fun and I came up with a turkey face, made from the Mini Shaker Tall Bulb.  What makes it a gift is that it is also a magnet!

Clear_Scraps_Turkey_Tall_Ornament_Shaker

I started with a base coat of brown acrylic paint on the top layer of the shaker.  I like to give this a couple coats and I've painted the edges also.

Next, I took the bottom layer and traced it on to a piece of Thanksgiving patterned paper - it has the cutest sayings on it!  This is glued to the bottom layer.

Clear_Scraps_Turkey_Tall_Ornament_ShakerB

For the inside shaker pieces, I've used the Fall Sequins which are a perfect combo color scheme!  From here, I glued on the other layers with a clear tacky glue and let dry.

It's time to make the face.  I love the wacky faces you can make from punches and die cuts!  This turkey comes together with 3 circles in varying sizes, and a die cut that is originally a candy corn.  For dimension, I usually like to dust the edges with some ink and a sponge.  Glue the die cuts to the front and add white detail to the eyes.  If you don't have a candy corn shape, a simple triangle will work also.

For the back, I've glued feathers in a circular pattern around the back.  Once dry, I've also added a thin strip of magnet tape - but I did use glue to make sure it stays in place!

To complete the look, I added a small piece of felt to his beak.  Is this called the "waddle?"  Hee hee!

This project is finished and ready for the dining room place settings!  Or, you can hang it on the refrigerator for your own fun decor, or instead attach it to a gift if you prefer.  I hope you've enjoyed this idea - there are lots of shakers to choose from on the Clear Scraps site, so don't hesitate to check it out!

Thanks for visiting!

Fall Blessed & Truck 3D Frameable

Hi Ya'll,

Tami here on the blog with you today with a project I'd like to share with you.

I love the new 3D Frameables mostly because I like "multi-taskers". The concept of having one frame and base that I can change up each month to match the season or the holiday is very appealing to me.

My friend and fellow cropper. Charlotte thought I should make one of the base & frame sets in a "basic" color that could be used throughout the year. We talked about maybe just painting it white or staining it. And actually since both sides of the base could be used - there is no right or wrong side. I could paint one side and stain the other.

I like vintage things and a lot of my decor reflects that. So I thought I would like to give my frame and base set a distressed look.

Take a look at how my 3D Framebable using the Blessed and Truck Word and Shape set turned out...

Clear_scraps_blessings_old_truck_3D_frameable_frame_altered_wood_fall_thanksgiving_decor_decorations_tami_sanders_

Now let me show you how I made it! 

I started by painting the frame and base pieces with a base coat of brown (you only need to paint the bottom portion of the frame backer)...

Clear_scraps_blessings_old_truck_3D_frameable_frame_altered_wood_fall_thanksgiving_decor_decorations_tami_sanders_1

Then I added 2 coats of white paint, letting it dry in between coats. After the paint had dried completely, I gave them a light sanding using a sanding block to distress them...

I like to leave a space between the frame and the backer to make changing out the photo or quote easier. To do this, I place pieces of 3D Foam Tape around the OUTER edges of the bottom and sides. Line up the pieces and adhere them...

I painted the Truck a vintage-y aqua blue and the Blessed in a golden yellow that matched the papers I was using. I added details to the truck using paint pens. After the pieces dried, I distressed them with brown chalk ink...

I wanted to fill the bed of the truck. I adhered pumpkin stickers on a scrap piece of cardstock and cut them out, leaving a tab at the bottom. I used double sided tape to adhere a base of raffia, then glued on the pumpkins...

And that's it! The pieces were all ready to put together. You can arrange the pieces as you'd like so that the photo or your quote shows. You can also turn the base so that the longer slots or the shorter ones are to the back to help with adjustments.

I will share the Word & Shape I made for Christmas to use with this frame and base next month.

Thanks for visiting the Clear Scraps Blog, please come back soon!

Those were the good ol' days!

Hi everybody! Leslie here, sharing a retro home decor piece featuring the Medium Circle DIY Pallet Shape decorated with paint, the 12" Funky Boxes Mascils Mask/Stencil and markers, along with a Mini Shaker Retro TV with Sprinkles Groovy Flowers and Sprinkles Lime Confetti as the shaker filler! Oh, and the retro thrift shop word stickers! This project was so stinkin' fun and brought back so many good memories! I know I'm telling my age but I distinctly remember the groovy green and orange color palette so many people had in their homes (and clothing) in the 70s! Yep, those were the good ol' days!

2021_1031001

I started by painting the front and back of the Medium Circle DIY Pallet Shape a super pale green by mixing Adirondack White with a tiny bit of Spanish Moss chalk paint. When that was dry, I laid the 12" Funky Boxes Mascils Mask/Stencil on the pallet and pounced Spanish Moss chalk paint all over it with a dauber. The paint ended up sparse and spotty in some areas and thicker in other areas but I left it that way to add to the retro/vintage feel. Once dry, I outlined all the stenciled areas with a dark green alcohol marker for contrast and interest.

Next, I painted the front chip form of the Mini Shaker Retro TV with Liquitex Yellow Oxide mixed with Cadmium Orange acrylic paint. Once that was dry, I ran a black alcohol marker around the outside edges and the TV screen cut-out and set it aside. I also ran the black marker around the outside edges of the rest of the chip forms so they'd all be uniform. I adhered a piece of orange patterned paper to the inside of the chip back and then adhered the next two chip forms to it. I added the shaker filler consisting of green and orange pieces of Sprinkles Groovy Flowers and Sprinkles Lime Confetti, added the acrylic divider, and then adhered the painted front chip form to close it up. I cut a rabbit ears antenna from metallic silver foil cardstock and adhered it to the TV. I adhered the TV to the bottom front of the pallet and added retro thrift shop word stickers to complete the piece.
