Vintage Summer Brag Bag
Clear Scraps Plaque dressed up for Easter

Mr Sunshine


Hi everyone! I recently found this photo I took a few years ago of my youngest son on a family day trip. He was so unhappy and gloomy  in the photo, that I thought it would be fun to play off his mood and pair it with happy, bright papers in a layout. 


Supplies Used:

  • Clear Scraps Deco Shapes (XL Scallop)
  • Pattern Papers (Basic Grey, Echo Park, American Craft, KI Memories, Cosmo Cricket)
  • Cloud Sticker (Echo Park)
  • Alphabet Stickers (Basic Grey)
  • Other: Glossy Accents



  1. Sketch out ray design on scrap paper to use as a pattern. Using a rainbow of pattern papers and cut out rays. 
  2. Adhere pattern paper to black cardstock and machine stitch. Adhere to the back of the Clear Scrap Scallop Deco Shape. 
  3. Adhere photo to the front of the Clear Scrap Scallop Deco Shape. 
  4. Add title with alphabet stickers to photo.
  5. Use typewriter to type journaling and adhere to layout.
  6. Embellish layout with cloud sticker, sun and glossy accents raindrops. 


idea to note: To create the look of raindrops, place a drop of Glossy Accents on the Clear Scraps acrylic. Place a pin tip in the middle of the Glossy Accents and pull up to create a rain drop look. Allow to dry completely. Be sure to practice on a scrap sheet of acrylic or while the plastic backing is still on your acrylic to get a feel for how to make the rain drops.
