Some inspiration for you

Christmas Mixables album


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.

Materials used:

Clear Scraps Mixables Christmas album

Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co-Joyeaux Noel
Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co-Naughty or Nice
Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co-Santa's Workshop
Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co-Postcards

Pink Paislee Pixee Stix- Cream Soda & Chocolate
May Arts striped ribbon
Prima lace
Glossy Accents
jingle bells
large blue bell
small glittery star ornament
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 "noel"

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 Postcards paper

Smpp6  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 letters.

The last acrylic page is partially covered with the scalloped Reindeer Games paper
Once again, the elements came from the Postcards paper

Apply press ons and the word "blessing".

Thanks again Tara!  We loved seeing your work!!
