May 2013

Hello  everyone and happy Tuesday :) . Today I am sharing this project I created with some of the new Clear Scraps stuff. Have you had a chance to work on the 12" Numbers Mascils , you are going to love it! It's easy to use and you can use it over and over again. I also used  the Acrylic Birds Border and Acrylic XL Deco Shapes/Sheet

Here is a closer look of some of the details.

How To:

For the background, lay down the number mascils on the XL acrylic deco shapes. Then spray it with black paint, let it dry then pull the mascils to reveal the  numbers design. Used patterned paper and attached it on the back of the painted XL deco sheet, the exposed acrylic number design will show the print of the patterned paper. And with the acrylic birds banner, I traced and cut it onto a patterned paper and adhere it on the back side. I added a little color using Stazon ink pad.

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking as out here at Clear Scraps. 


Thankful For You Send It Clear Card by Pinky

Good morning Clear Scraps fans, 

it is a beautiful morning here in Nashville, TN!

Here in the south we are finishing up school and it's time to get those Thank You cards in for the teacher, I mean they work so incredibly hard all year- it's a wonderful time to hand-make a card and send it in with a gift.  ClearScraps-Send-It-Clear-Acrylic-Card-Jenni-Bowlin-Pinky-Hobbs1

Why not go the extra mile and make a beautiful Clear Scraps Send It Clear card for him/her? I mean it will be the best card she gets all year, I guarantee it!

For this card I used Jenni Bowling papers, Purple Cow Punches (for the flowers), and of course the amazing Beacon Zip Dry Adhesive! 


I can't wait to send this in my with son Justice for his music teacher. 

Happy Monday my friends, 
Until next time- keep on creating!

Endless Love Layout

Endless LoveGood morning fellow crafters!  Kay here with my latest layout where I'm honoring the very special relationship between a mother & child.  With Mother's Day only two days away, I felt that this was the perfect time to create a page with me & my son. 

I've used one of Clear Scraps more recent releases from their 'Clearly Framed' collection--the Medium Circle Scallop Frame.

This year will be my very first Mother's Day--so it's a special one for me.  I'm blessed to still have my own mother with me and for the first time in my life I'll be celebrating being a mother myself--and what a rewarding experience it is!


Instead of using the Scallop Circle Frame...well, as a frame--I decided to cut it in half and use it more as an embellishment to my page.

To give the acrylic frame it's texture, I first highlighted the border of the frame with a white Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pen & then I dry embossed it with a Tim Holz embossing folder (Regal Flourishes).  These simple techniques was all I needed to give the frame the subtle texture I wanted for my page.

I found that this sentiment spoke volumes & that it's very much I pulled the title for my page from this sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by & I wish all the moms out there a very happy & rewarding Mother's Day surrounded by all your children & loved ones.  Till my next post...

Mother's Day Layout and Card

Hello everyone! With Mother's Day coming up this weekend I am happy to share a card and layout I created with some fun Clear Scraps products!


First up, for my card, I used the Deco Send It Clear Card and covered each section with patterned paper. 



After embellishing, I used the 6 inch Chicken Wire Mascil and acrylic paint to create this fun effect on the corners of the card.


Here is a peek at the inside!




Next, I created this layout with the 6 inch Circles Mascil.  If you haven't had a chance to play with these yet, you must try them!  They are perfect to use with spray inks, acrylic paint, or pretty much any type of medium!



Here is a close up of the Circle Mascil:

Hi everyone! Wendy here with festive banner to make any pirate fans smile! The Clear Scrap Small Banners are perfect for creating personalized banners for kids room's or parties! 

Clear_scraps_pirate banner_wprice1

1. To create the ocean waves, punch a circle punch along a 2 inch strip of cardstock. Layer a few strips of these waves together and you have a great ocean effect. I outlined the waves a bit with a Copic to make them pop. Adhere to acrylic banner piece. 

2. A piece of beige cardstock with a bit of Copic dots creates the sand effect.

3. Stamp pirate images, color and cut out.

4. Stamp skull image and shade by dotting Copics. Trim, mat and adhere to 3 acrylic banner fronts. Adhere dark grey cardstock to the backs of these acrylic pieces. 

5. Trim, mat and adhere a strip of yellow cardstock to the remaining acrylic banner. Back with dark grey cardstock.

Secret Garden Album

  Good Day to everyone! Elena is here. And today I want to share an album I made using Build It Your Way large acrylic binder and  BIYW Fancy acrylic 9.0" x 11.0"



  I used  Secret Garden Collection and combined it mwith many photos taken last spring.


  Some of the pages were covere with the patterned papers com-pletely, the others were covered jus in a half



  I like the transparency of the acrylic, as it adds additional background to your pages


 The backside of the background papers can be used as well , so isn't it savy?


  and this is how it is seen in the album


  I used some alcohol inks to color the page and the edges:


 and the other side of it looks that way:



some stamping and inking the edges used there as well




  Are you ready to scrap your spring photos?


M is for Mom...

Happy Friday everyone!! This is Adora you host for today's blog post. Here's a layout I made with Mother's day theme in mind.  I've created this layout of my Mom using the 12x12 acrylic sheet, it's a little hard to see on my photo but for me anything under acrylics seems better, love the finished look.


Also used the Expression Small Blessings (spray paintred) for title, and embellished my page with Acrylic Bird Shapes.  Other supplies used: Ki Memories, May Arts Ribbon, My Minds Eye and martha Stewart.

Thank you so much for stopping by......until next time!!

ATC's on acrylic?

Hey there bloggers Rita Barakat here! Did you know that Clear Scraps carries acrylic ATC's?
ATC's are fun because they are so small- it's a great way to try new techniques!
I printed a picture on vellum paper, then spread matte 
super heavy gel to stick it to the acrylic. I used my 
brayer to get out any bubbles or wrinkles and  let it dry.
After it was dry I trimmed it down and sanded the edges.
I colored over most of the areas with alcohol ink- looking back now
I think it would be even better looking had I mask off their faces
with a cute shape -like a heart. 
Then I dug through my stash and found this old rub-on
of the word "Adore". I know it's hard to tell but the
whole card (except the rub-on) is transparent. 
I think this would be a great technique for a coaster...
hmmm I think I feel another project coming on!
