Fun Clear Scraps Minis!!

"Guy" Layouts are easy with Clear Scraps Slides! Plus a Sneak Peek and a Giveaway!


My husband is into extreme sports ~ mountain biking, dirt biking, motorcycle racing, rock climbing...stuff like that. He has made it more than clear that he does not really want flowers, rhinestones, and ribbon on his extreme sports layouts. I understand. But...what to do with them? Making "girly" layouts comes easy to me, especially with all the gorgeous products available with flourishes and flowers and swirls. I find that making "guy" layouts is more of a challenge.

Clear Scraps to the rescue! I have discovered that Clear Scraps slides are the perfect complement to extreme sports layouts. Here I painted the slides with a little bit of alcohol ink and adhered them to a piece of subtly patterned paper by Basic Grey (using Zip Dry Paper Glue). Add some Thickers letter stickers by American Crafts and the finished result is a perfectly masculine layout. It was really quick and easy, too, which is an added bonus. So if you've been looking for ideas for scrapping "guy" layouts, hope this idea inspires you too!
