Make That Panel Acrylic!


Hey there Clear Scraps friends, 

it's Pinky today with a SPRING card. I know many of you are still in the snow but I have hope! When I was making this card I thought it would be fun to slip in some Clear Scraps acrylic as a panel to make the card pop.

Since Clear Scraps acrylic sheets are so easy to trim and cut, they easily can make any craft project more stylish and unique.

After I stamped my images I punched the edges of the patterned paper, and adhered each side to a strip of acrylic.

I also added some Liquid Pearls and stamped images inside the card since the acrylic allowed the recipient a sneak peek inside.

Fun card and I am sure you can make a million versions of it!

Hope you get your spring fix today- 

Until next time, keep on creating!

Acrylic Mason Jar Album

Hello! Jennifer here and I'm back to share another Clear Scraps project with you!  Today, I am showing a mini album I created with the Acrylic Mason Jar album.  When I saw this cute, album I instantly thought of warmer weather and sunshine!  I used photos of my adorable 2 yr old nephew at one of our local spray parks!


I layered strips of patterned paper and stitched together, then adhered to the top of the album to create a "lid". I used my sanding tools to smooth the edges after trimming.



I love the heart cut on on the front of the album! This allows a photo or embellishments to show through!


 For this page, I left the top bare to allow other pages to show through.  I love how each page adds layers of embellishments!


 Here are additional photos of my album! The Mason Jar shape is perfect to document your favorite spring/summer event!  Did you know there is a Chip Mason Jar Album as well? 











Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  The Clear Scraps store has many more fun album shapes to create with!  Be sure to check it out today!



Additional products used:  patterned paper, stickers, die cuts:  Pink Paislee; stamps:  American Crafts; ink: Ranger Ink; misc: sewing machine

Ink and Mixer Tutorial

Good morning Clear Scraps fans!  Guiseppa here with a fast and easy tutorial using the new Mixers.  I chose the Wire is my favorite one.


Gather your supplies...your Mixer, ink and a shape that you either punched or cut out from a die cut or die cutting machine.  I chose this four leaf clover since we are in the month of March:)



Set your cut out shape on top of your  Mixer.  I want you to know that I left the plastic coating on my Wire Mixer. That way, when I am ready, I can use the Wire Mixer itself as an embellishment on another project.



Add a second piece of paper to the back of the mixer.



Go in and ink and dab all around and in the mixer until you get your desired color.



Here is what it looked like when it was done.



Lay your shape back on top of the inked image you just created.  Make sure you line it all up correctly and then trace around it with a pen that is the same color as your ink.



Here is what it looks like.



Then finally cut around it.  Now, you have your shape to embellish your project.





Thanks for stopping in!  The projects this month have been fabulous and next month, we add more fabulous designers to our team, so make sure you are watching for that!





Acrylic Sheet Card...

Hello everyone, Adora here today to share with you this card created with acrylic sheet and the new wire mixer as stencil. What I love about this card of course is the acrylic base, I think cards made with acrylic takes it to the next level :) . This is a little pick me up card for someone I love dearly.


First step- cut a 4 x 6 size acrylic sheet. Then use the wire mixer and spray paint one side. Stamp the image on the painted side.  Cut and fold a 4 x 6 patterned paper to use as the base of the card and stamp the sentiment onto the paper. Adhere the acrylic on top of the card.

Other Supplies used: Tim Holtz Stamps, Acrylic Paint, Heidi Swapp paper, Beacon Adhesive Glue.



Thanks for stopping by.....



Card to Banner...

The Clear Scraps Small Pennant Banners make great decorations but how fun would it be to get one of them in the mail as a card. At 4 x 6 inches, they're small enough that they can fit in a padded envelope. 




  1. Stamp design on the banners in white ink. Embellish with strips of washi tape.
  2. Spray Scallop Frames with iridescent spray. Paint white acrylic paint on the back of the frames to make the sparkle pop. 
  3. Cut circles from pattern paper to fit in Scallop Frame. Embellish with alphabet stickers.
  4. Adhere circles and frames to banner. 
  5. Tie banner together with tulle strips. 



Here's a closeup of the banner...


 Supplies Used:

Really Girls~using an Oval frame and Wire Mixers!!

Hi everyone, Connie here with a scrapbooking page using the large acrylic Oval Frame and the Wire Mixers.


The stencil parts are done using the Wire Mixer and then I adhered the Wire Mixer (under the title) as an embellishment.  Two for one, right!!!!  I used Zip Dry by Beacon to adhere the acrylic to the page.


I really loved how it all came together !!!!!  The Oval Frame was traced, then cut out and  glued on the page with Zip Dry by Beacon.

Thanks for stopping by~


Fun with Mixers

Hello Clear Scraps fans!! Jennifer on the blog today to share a couple layouts I created with the new Mixers!  Out of all the new winter releases, these were my favorites! 

First up, I used the Feathers Mixers. What I absolutely love about the Mixers is that you can use them as a stencil as well as an embellishment! 


I first placed the feathers onto my white cardstock and then used spray ink to create a negative image.   


I quickly wiped off the feathers with a paper towel so I could color them.

Using a foam applicator, I applied two different colors of alcohol ink to color the acrylic.

I love how it turned out!


 Next, I used the Gears Mixers which are perfect for a boy layout! 


 Again, I used the individual gears as stencils with spray ink.  I then colored each piece with alchol ink. 


 To add to the layers, I also cut gear shapes from patterned paper and cardstock on my Silhouette.


Thank you for stopping by today! Check out the Clear Scraps shop to see these fun Mixers, as well as all of the new products! While you're there, see all of the great deals on clearance items!

This card will not only WOW the recipient but also be a memory and treasure. 

I simply layered a doily on the front page, then added some Hambly. 

Added a stamped image (Avocado Arts)  and also added ribbons everywhere. 

When I was done I added silver Stickles around the edges. ALOT of impact in such a small card. 

I hope you are inspired to use more Clear Scraps in every project!!

Clearly having a fun time...layout and card.

Can you believe we are into the second week of March?  I can't say that I am sad at all.  I am so ready for warmer weather.  Guiseppa here and I want to share with you may warmer weather projects.  First off, let's start with a layout.

I love the new masks from Clear Scraps and I plan on playing with them a lot.  I created this layout using the Spiral Dots Mask 6x6.

The perfect summer day1

I used the mask several places on my layout.  I made sure I had some scratch paper partially behind some of the mask as to not get over spray and show the edges of the 6x6 mask, although I am not perfect:)

The perfect summer day3

The perfect summer day4

I splattered more mist around my layout.

The perfect summer day5

The perfect summer day2

Doesn't this layout just warm you up?

Now for this fun card I found in the Silhouette Store.  I decided to use the Clear Scraps Flower Mixers (new) and the Clear and Chip.  

Box card1

I painted the edges of the clear acrylic flowers and the chipboard flowers, just to accentuate them.

Box card2

Box card3

Box card4

The paper I used was Adornit's Crazy for Daisy and it had this cute sentiment that I used and inserted it into the back of the card.  I held it in place using a small clothespin.

Box card5

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have been enjoying the warm Spring projects that the DT has been sharing with you.  Until next time!
