T'is the season to start thinking about those Christmas gifts, cards and scrapbook albums you're going to make this year! And Clear Scraps would love to help you out with this amazing Christmas Mixables Album.
It's a combination Acrylic & Chipboard album (alternating pages) that stands 6" wide and nearly 12" tall....big enough to fit tons of photos in to record all your Holiday festivities or to send to Grandma & Grandpa with all those adorable Grandchildren pictures in.
Tara Powell has done one up for us here at Clear Scraps - we think she's done an amazing job and we wanted to share her talent with you. Thank you so much Tara for Guest Designing for us and inspiring us all with this gorgeous album.

On the front acrylic snowflake page I used Ranger alcohol inks in Sailboat
Blue mixed with Pearl Mixative
I only used the alcohol ink on the front side of the acrylic to give it a
sheer stained glass effect
I used Glossy Accents as a base and then applied Pink Paislee Pixee Stix
glitter in Cream Soda to outline the edges and also on the words
Page 2 is covered with the backside of Postcards and a press on is
applied in the corner
The word "bright" is spelled out in the Expressions letters and a piece of
the lace is adhered underneath my photo.
Page 3 is covered in Postcards and the word "merry" is spelled out
in the Expressions letters
Page 4's edges are inked with Espresso alcohol ink. I wanted a more
dramatic color so I inked both the front and back side. I outlined the cut out
ornaments with Glossy Accents and followed with a thick coating of the Chocolate
Pixee Stix glitter. Once dry I adhered my photos and layered the Christmas tree
press ons over the sides of them. Rub your North Pole post mark press on in the
corner, spell out "joy" with the letters and that page is complete.
Page 5 is covered with Naughty or Nice
paper and the circles are
punched out of Joyeaux Noel
. I punched holes in the circles with my
Crop A Dile and tied bells on. The "Santa Claus" letter is cut out of the
Page 6 is covered with Santa's Workshop Postcards paper. All elements are
cut out of the Postcards paper and apply the "Airmail" press on to
bottom of the red journaling spot. Spell out "wish" with the Expressions
The last acrylic page is partially covered with the scalloped Reindeer
Once again, the elements came from the Postcards paper
Apply press ons and the word "blessing".
Thanks again Tara! We loved seeing your work!!
