Full Steam Ahead! *New Sneak Peek w/ Pinky!

Good morning! Pinky here with a fun sneak peek just in time for CHA!

I have 3 amazing boys and as soon as I saw this I knew my baby boy would love it....How fun is this train, it would be perfect for any train enthusiast even an adult!

Clear Scraps is going to blow your mind at CHA, be sure to stop by and say HI!


I used the awesome Basic Grey Wander line of papers and embellishments .


I also used the ClearSnap Smooch Spritz for the stars, then I sealed them using the PYMII.


It worked perfectly! The Smooch dries really well on the acrylic if you let it set for a few minutes.


I added buttons to the wheels and a little circle scalloped punch.


Oh and some Viva Decor Pearl Pen on the edges! Perfect for a pop!


The best part? When my son saw it he smiled and squealed!!!

This is why I scrapbook....I have man ideas on my blog so come check it out

Where's Mickey?


When I received this Mickey-shaped album I needed to think how I would use it. I didn't have pictures of a Mickey or Minnie experience. So I just thought I would scrap it like I also scrap other shaped albums. Why not??

So here's my Mickey album, transferred into a nice mini album about a trip to a fun park with the girls.

( if you have cats I think it would be a very nice album as well! )









I also used some acrylic shapes on the pages. I embossed them with the Big Shot machine.

The papers are sponsored by Pink Paislee.

Can't wait to see what you blog readers will create with this album! If you have created one, email it to us, we really love to see work done by our fans!

Best wishes,

A clear mini album


Hi there.

There's been a few conversations between the DT's here that there's still a few crafters out there that are "afraid" to touch Acrylics. That they don't know what to do with it.

Well to be honest with you, I too was afraid at one point but not anymore. Let me share with you an Acrylic album I made that I'm sure you'll see very simple in technique but provides a great background without taking too much away from the clearness aspect of the Acrylic album.

My Aero family mini

My aero family

I used the  NEW Acrylic 6x6 Regular Album from Clear Scraps and the only thing I did to dress it up is by adding a lavender paint on it. I smeared it on the back of the acrylics so the sheen/shine effect of the acrylic will still see through the pages. I also added a line of liquid pearl all around the edges of the pages so you can easily see the shape of the album.

I also added blocks of bold pattern papers on top of the acrylics to give it that pop of color.

My aero family (2)

In the inside pages, I stuck with one design. I also made sure that the placement of my pattern papers are in the same positions for both front and back sides of each page. This way, my adhesive will not show.

A few sprinkles of layered flowers and journaling blocks finished off my book.

As you can see, Acrylics are not as "scary" as they may seem. I say try painting on it today. You never know, you might just be inspired to do more with your acrylic. Much more than I did! It's just a matter of time before you're hooked to the  "Clear Scraps Acrylic Albums".


Thanks for stopping by.


Also used:

Flowers from Accent Creative Designs

Liquid pearl from Viva Decor

Circle journaling blocks from Jenni Bowlin Studios

Happy Friday everyone, tell your friends that every Friday we have a giveaway, we love our fans!

It's the little things...

Hello all!Rita here! Happy New Year! Time to make new years resolutions...well maybe LOL! I have decided to try a little harder at making cards as they don't come easy to me. Sometimes a card can really make someones day so this is what I came up with and I have to say I liked the results! I used white cardstock, a page from  Clear Scraps mini deco album, my Cuttlebug and  the Festivus collection from TaDa Creative Studios! 
I used a little Alcohol Ink on the edges of the acrylic - it makes it pop!
So how about you? Any Scrappy New Years resolutions?

Car Acrylic Album

Un Parfum d'amour mini album(resize) 

Have you ever tried one of this cute little acrylic vehicle album? If not, try one and you will know why? Hi everyone, it's Irene here. This is a cute little album that I've created using Clear Scraps acrylic car album. This is such a perfect album for boys or even girls. You can scrap about a car wash or about a road trip. Even about your kids while playing with their toy cars.

My album is filled with photographs taken while my kids are helping out during a car wash day. Below are some pages in this album.



I've done a lot of stamping in this album. The only tip to stamping on acrylic is to use permanent ink or solvent ink. Hope you like this album and try creating one for yourself.  

Supplies used: Acrylic Products: Clear Scraps; Cardstock: Bo Bunny; Pattern Papers: Bo Bunny; Inks: Ranger Distress Ink, Tsukineko Staz On; Stamps: Stamp Enjoy; Flowers: Accent Creative Designs, Bo Bunny; Ribbons: Bo Bunny, Creative impressions; Adhesives: Beacon, Tombow.
