Fall Magnets~easy project!
October 30, 2013
Hi everyone!! I have a quick project making shapes out of the Clear Scraps 12"x12" acrylic sheets. Being as we are in the Fall of the year, I wanted to make some pumpkin magnets for my kitchen board. Such an easy project with Clear Scraps.
I use the S.E.I. (Chalet) paper pack and die cut embellishments, also by S.E.I. I cut the acrylic sheet in half so it would fit through the Big Shot. I had pumpkin and acorn Sizzix dies, so I did two of each.
To bring out the acrylic a bit more, I outlined the shapes with a bronze pearl pen by Viva Decor.
The background paper I used is actually from the packaging, that the die shapes were in. I didn't emboss the shapes, once they were cut out but it would have been a great look, also. Thanks for stopping by today!!!
These would make great teacher gifts!!!
Fun Fall Layout and Mini Album
October 29, 2013
Ok, so I have to admit, I am not fan of the cold, but I do happen to love the colors of Fall. Guiseppa here and I would like to share with you a couple of Fall projects I made using Clear Scraps products.
First off I made this layout using the Clear Scraps Woodgrain 12x12 Stencil.
I simple used a mist to create this affect. It was really quite simple and I love the look it gave my layout.
Here are some more details to my layout.
Next this fun clear acrylic mini album. This one is called the Deco Album. To accent the acrylic, I inked the edges with brown StazOn Ink.
Now, all this album needs is some fun fall pictures. I need to get on that. Thanks for stopping in and peeking at my projects.
Halloween Banner with Jennifer
October 28, 2013
Hello! Halloween is just around the corner! And what better way to get into the festive spirit is to create something to show off in your home! Today I'm happy to share a fun Halloween banner I created using the Large Acrylic Banner. I particularly love this banner because you can decorate for pretty much any holiday or theme!
I loved using different papers and embellishments to cover each pennant. Did you know you can make your own acrylic embellishments, as well? Take any 12x12 Acrylic Sheet, cut it down to the size you need, and run it through your die cut machine.
Here, I used the Mini Skull from Tim Holtz. I then added Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels in Chandelier to give it some sparkle!
I also made the Mini Bat from the same die set. My bat is covered with Glimmer Glaze from Tattered Angels. Making your own acrylic embellishments can be a nice addition to your project!
On this pennant, I used the "3" and "1" from the Acrylic Alphabet and Numbers Set. I colored my numbers with Ranger Alcohol ink in Rust. Instead of using an applicator, I dripped the ink straight onto the acrylic.
Thanks for reading today! Hope this inspires you to do some spooky creations of your own with Clear Scraps! Check out the blog this week for more acrylic inspiration!
Additional products used: patterned paper, stickers: My Mind's Eye; brads: Teresa Collins Designs; bakers twine: Whisker Graphics; wooden bingo piece, decorative pin: Maya Road; washi tape: Freckled Fawn; misc: tulle, doily

Hi there, Elena is posting today and I have a very special project I made for my Family.
Our family has been lucky to make a beautiful shot of 4 of us and I have been seeking for a special product to feature this shot for a long time. And finally I found it - it is a Medium Rectangle Deco Top Frame.
This how it looks during the daylaight<
just love how it turns diiferent depending on the light
To start I colored it with alcohol inks and while they were still wet, I applied embossing powder on them and carefully heated it with my tool from tha backside. Then I applied Shimmerz Texturez using 6" Quarterfoil mascil.
Also I used Expression Small Family, that I just stamped on it with Staz On and lined with white pen
I added some Blingz by Shimmerz on several parts of the alphas and colored the page from the Mini Heart Album almost completely with the same Blingz too.
Hope you enjoyed my frame as I do, as it is quite an easy and fast way to create Home Decor project for your house.

Happy Holidays Card..
October 23, 2013
Hello everyone!!! Have you thought of the holidays yet? The day is moving along too fast :). and with all the busy-ness that is on our way, there is really no time early enough to prepare for it :). Starting with my holiday cards this year, I created this project using the 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheet t and Clear N' Chip "Believe" Sheet, one down fifty more to go!
Supplies used: SEI Chalet Paper Collection, Stazon Ink Pads, The Twinery and Beacon 3-in-1 craft glue.
Trace and cut the ornament shape as shown, then adhere onto the back of the acrylic and punch a hole for ribbon. Cut the acrylic sheets in 4 parts (can make 4 cards total) then smear Stazon ink on the edge for color. For the base of the card, cut a 12 x 5 patterned paper and fold in half, attached the prepared acrylic on top using eyelets on four corners. Add the ornament on top using pop-dots for added dimension.
Thanks for stopping..........until next time..
Precious Acrylic Expression
October 22, 2013
Hi everyone! It's Irene here again and today I want to show you all a layout which I've created using mascils and an acrylic expression by Clear Scraps.
I've used the 6x6 damask mascil with some texture paste to create the textured background on this layout. When it is dry, I misted it with some colorations by Art Anthology.
Using an acrylic expression here as title is perfect because I still want to see the area underneath it. To make it visible, I've used a Zig Painty marker to outline it.

Hello Clear Scraps fans! It's Irene here today and a layout using some acrylic circles and mascils by Clear Scraps.
I've created the background using the fans mascil with tons of mists.
This acrylic cricle above is painted using alcohol ink and later doodled on using a white marker and paints.
As for this hot air balloon, I've attached an acrylic circle on top of the cut out image. I've embossed the circle and later painted it with alcohol ink and paints.
Have fun scrapping!

All framed up~ Fall home decor project!
October 17, 2013
Hi everyone, I have a really cute home decor project using one of the Clear Scraps XL frames and some S.E.I. paper products. Here is the picture of what we are going to make~
So let's get started~
Any of the XL frames will work for this.
*The first thing is to trace around the acrylic frame and cut it out of the pattern paper, in my case I used the S.E.I. (Challet) paper pack.
*Once you have your shape, I used a Darkroom Door background stamp and added s script image to mine. I was going after a vintage look. The photo is a 5"x7" and I cut it down a little, so it would hang a liitle bit over the center part (opening ) of the frame. By doing it this way, I can change out photo's if I so choose to.
*I made a mat to accomplish what I just discribed to you in the above instructions. Next ink around the edges of the paper. I used ink by Ranger.
*It is starting to take shape. I adhered the paper to the acrylic frame with Zip Dry by Beacon. Works so good!
* I took two of the acrylic leaves from Clear Scraps and used green and beige alchol ink on them for color.
*After everything was dry, I started placing the elments down on the frame. I used a real twig, S.E.I. stickers and die cuts, to build the branch the bird is sitting on. I tucked the two acrylic leaves in the cluster also.
*The frame is pinned to a vintage bingo card~love the eclectic look it gives and the presentation of the acrylic frame.

Spooky Halloween Door Hanger
October 16, 2013
Halloween is getting closer and if you haven't completed all of your Halloween crafts yet, here's one that is super easy and so cute. Guiseppa here to share with you a quick way to make a Halloween door hanger.
First you want to start off with a 12x12 piece of patterned paper of your choice. Cut it into 6 strips, each being 2x12 inches.
I want to accordion fold these strips, so I used my Score-Pal to measure and score, making the folding much easier. I scored every half inch. If you don't have a scoring tool, you can measure with a ruler, mark and fold.
Here you can see the scored lines.
Next accordion fold your strips by folding on the up side then again on the underside.
Here is what it should look like.
Here are all of my strips...all accordion folded.
Next attach and adhere all of your accordion folded strips together.
Adhere the two ends together to form a circle.
Cut out two circles one 4 inches and the other 3 1/4 inches.
Next, turn over your accordion folded circle and squeeze it together and adhere the larger 4 inch circle to the back. This will keep your accordion circle together.
Turn it back over to the side you intend to use as the front and adhere the smaller circle. By the time this drys, it should hold together nicely.
Next I used a doily to cover up the circle. You could put anything you would like on yours.
Next I picked a couple of Clear Scraps acrylic shapes to go on my door hanger...the Large Star and the Mini Clear Bat.
Next, I cut out a star using my Silhouette. I wanted this to go on top of my clear star. The cut was 5 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches.
I adhered it to my acrylic star and inked the edges with black StazOn ink.
Using more black StazOn ink and a sponge, I colored my bat. I wanted a cloudy look to the bat, not a straight black look. So, by using the sponge, I achieved that.
Now to finish up! I added my star and bat using a little foam adhesive for dimension.
I also added this chipboard title on the bat, but you can add whatever title you would like.
How fun is that? I love the fact that I can dress up my Clear Scraps Acrylic shapes anyway I want. Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have fun crafting your Halloween with Clear Scraps! Check out the Clear Scraps Website to see all of their amazing products!
Fall Birch Trees
October 15, 2013
Hi everyone! Wendy here sharing a fall layout today.
We've used the Mascils with inks, paints, embossing pastes...but how about as a cutting pattern? Before I had a diecutting machine, I used to love fussy cutting designs out for my layouts. I decided I wanted the birch trees in the Trees Mascil be white with pattern paper in the background. In order to create that effect, I had to cut out the trees. Laying the Mascil down on the cardstock, trace the stencil completely. Using an exacto knife cut out the design. I didn't cut out the spots on the tree trunks, but instead used them as markers showing me where to add color.
I colored the birch trees in with copics and water color pencils. I added SEI Diecut leaves to complete the birch tree look.
I really wanted to color the Deco Top Frame copper to match my SEI Diecut leaves. Only problem...no copper paint. Instead I used gold acrylic paint and mixed a bit of Orange Crush Glimmer Glaze together. It gave me the perfect color with a bit of shimmer, while allowing the tree background to show through.
All that was left to do was add a bit of journaling, twine and a sentiment.
Supplies Used: Clear Scraps (12 Tree Mascil, Medium Deco Frame), SEI (Yesteryear), Beacon (Zip Dry), Glimmer Glaze (Orange Crush), Gold acrylic paint, twine

Good Monday morning everyone! Hope you all had a fun weekend :) This is the best time of fall where is still get sunny but with the cool breeze of air, I love it. Speaking of fall today I created this layout using the acrylic-scallop shape with a fall/halloweenish theme. These are also some of my left over supplies from the Creating Made Easy October Kit.
Note: I color the acrylic with a slight (mist) spray of black paint, just enought to still see the print of the pattern paper on the back. I embellished the page with cut out prints from the paper and with the hand made flower rosette and banners. Here's a closer look.
Thank you for stopping and checking us out here at Clear Scraps Blog....until next time!!!
