Using Acrylic to Bring Out the Boy!

~Maximize Your Acrylic!~

Good morning from a spring filled Tennessee!

Pinky here with a post about maximizing your acrylic sheets.

I love making cards and I love making acrylic cards even more, I have been on a kick lately of using up my scraps and using them on "half" of  a card vs an entire card is perfect! Did you know you can get 6- 4" by 6" cards from one sheet of

Clear Scraps 12X12 Acrylic?


I just trim the Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheet to 4X6 and use it as the front of my card.

I take another 4X6 piece of patterned paper for the back and a 2"X6" scrap for the binding on top of the card. Not only does the Clear Scraps Acrylic add a touch of beauty to the card but it also makes it very interesting and unusual. 


Fantastic for a special friend or any occasion. You don't have to be a scrap superstar to make a superstar card! :) 


I would love to see your acrylic work, if you have a special project please link us up!

Another amazing card by Pinky. She has inspired me to get a few sheets this month and see what I can come up with.


This is really pretty - hmmmm I might have to try something like this.


Beautiful card and love the half and half.
