Cupcakes and Friends Mini Album

Good morning everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a sweet little Cupcake Keychain album I made for my niece.  As a new Kindergarten student she is making new friends and I wanted to create something for her to remember these new relationships.

I kept the album simple using just a bit of stickles and a few buttons and flowers.  And, by placing the photos in between the acrylic pages and the paper, I was able to ensure that the photos would go untouched and last just a bit longer than might otherwise happen with one so young.

What can you seal behind the acrylic page?



Cutie Mixable Album and Echo Park~so cute together!

Hi , Connie here with a Cutie Mixable Album by Clear Scraps and Simple Life by Echo Park.  The album is a mix of acrylic and chipboard.  The look of both is gorgeous together.  Check this out~


I used Beacon Zip Dry to adhere the pattern paper to the chipboard and the acrylic pages.  Works so well!!!  Here is a look at the inside pages~





All of the pages are shaded with Staz-On Ink/Brown by Imagine Crafts. The album come with 3 acylic pages and 2 chipboard pages ~ so perfect!!!

Hi {card}

Raechelle here sharing a quick and simple, yet pretty card. 

I started with a Half Fancy Send it Clear card

I wanted to keep this simple yet inviting, so I used the pretty scallop cut to my advantage by placing minimal embellishments upon it kept most of the design to the inside.

Shabby Card and a Sabbilicious Tutorial

Good morning Clear Scraps Friends.

Today I have a shabby card to share with you


To create this card I used Ornate Send it Clear Card.

Also to embellish it I added one of the Butterflies Embellishments,

that I colored with alcohol inks and then just traced on it using a permanent pen.


  To color my background I started with acryl Structur clear gel, and applied it using

a 6" Cheetah mascil


Then I colored this area with 2 alcohol inks:


I didn't wait till it dried and misted Shimmerz white spray:


Then it took some time the gel to dry and the spray drops too.

Hope you have liked it.


Halloween Popcorn Treat Boxes and Card

Hi again friends, it's Pinky today with another use for Clear Scraps acrylic, these are Popcorn Treat Boxes for the classroom and a card for the teacher too. 
I used my Silhouette to cut the Gable Boxes out- then I inserted Clear Scraps acrylic into the front and back so it would hold small popcorn (or smaller candy would work) and each child in the classroom gets his or her own box!
These were so easy and fun to make. 
I then created a Halloween card using the Clear Scraps acrylic as well. 
The Clear Scraps acrylic makes a wonderful touch, making it MORE useful and definitely makes it stand out.

Recipe Guide Teacup Magnets by Pinky



Hey friends, it's Pinky today. 

This month I created a sweet little Recipe Album using the Creating Made Easy September Kit, and when I was going to create for today's post I saw my little Clear Scraps Acrylic Mini TeaCup album and thought what a great addition to my Recipe Album, kitchen MAGNETS!Clear Scraps Teacup Magnets Recipe Ideas Pinky Hobbs 4


So I used the leftover papers I had from the kit (the kits are phenominal!).Clear Scraps Teacup Magnets Recipe Ideas Pinky Hobbs 1


One of the stickers included in the kit had a measurement cheat sheet, so I definitely used that one, then I created a Recipe Notes magnet as well because I always substitute buttermilk with vinegar and milk, etc....

I also added a dishwasher magnet that says "Dirty Dishes" simply because if I am going to make a set I might as well coordinate them all.

Scallop Send It Clear Card

Hello Card(resize)

Hello Clear Scraps fans! It's Irene here and I would like to share with you all an acrylic card which I've created using Clear Scraps Scallop Send It Clear card. To keep the card interesting, I've left most part of the front flaps to be see-through.


One way to decorate but still keep the see-throughness is by using stamps. You can stamp details onto acrylic by using solvent or permanent ink. This way, you can have tons of details on the front flaps without taking the see-throughness away.

A LATTE love for Echo Park and Clear Scraps!

Hi Clear Scraps fans!  Thank you for popping by today during our Echo Park days!  I have a super fun mini album to share using the Simple Life line from Echo Park and our Mason Jar mini album.  

Photo_1 (6)

I just loved putting together this little mini to immortalize my love of coffee and some of my favorite snaps of it.  For starters, I did alter the album by using my Tim Holtz Tonic scissors to cut off the top of the was the entire part that looked like the threads of the jar and what I was left with looks just like a coffee mug, I was so happy! Here's a look at my favorite page where I created a little pocket using a Starbucks coffee sleeve with a wonderful Oprah quote on it.  My journaling is on the tag tucked into the pocket.


I do have full pictures of the entire mini on My Blog today so if you'd like to see the whole project, please do stop by!  Thank you so much for checking out the Clear Scraps blog today and have a wonderful day!

Lovely Day with Sassy Mini and Echo Park

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a fun mini album I created using the Sassy Mixable 8x8 album and the gorgeous new Echo Park Collection, Simple Life.

Lovely day_mini album_clear scraps_echo park_nancy keslin_coverLovely day_mini album_clear scraps_echo park_nancy keslin_page 1Lovely day_mini album_clear scraps_echo park_nancy keslin_page 2Lovely day_mini album_clear scraps_echo park_nancy keslin_page 3 Lovely day_mini album_clear scraps_echo park_nancy keslin_last

I filled the Sassy Mini Album with the wonderfully fun and bright Echo Park papers and bits of flowers and lace.  The beautiful acrylic pages allow the fun embellishments from the collection and papers to peek through the other pages, while the shaped chipboard helps break things up for a more cohesive look.



CS + Echo Park with Sue and Connie!

Today we are so happy to have Connie and Sue on the blog with their creativity using Echo Park and Clear Scraps!

First up is Connie....

Hi, Connie here with a project using the Mini Arrow Album  by Clear Scraps and Echo Park (Simple Life) pattern paper.  I know you think a mini album is coming, but it's not.  I took the Mini Arrow Album apart and made Place Seating cards for the "grands".  Take a look~


When I started creating with this super cute mini, all I saw was a house not an arrow, so that is how this project came about.  It is all held together with Beacon 3-IN-1 glue, keeping  everything in place.


The acrylic house is sitting on a vintage milk cap for added charm!


And to think it all started with this cute Mini Arrow Album!


Thanks for stopping by~



And now we have a layout from Sue.... 

Grandkids are Blessings Layout

I have two adorable grandsons who are just the sweetest little guys.

I just love being around these two.  So many smiles, hugs and lots and lots of love.

Being a Grandma is Wonderful.  (Although I’m sure I don’t look old enough to be a Grandma)

Grandkids are definitely a Blessing.

The “Grandkids are Blessings” Layout was made with:

Tip:  I sprayed the Irresistible Texture sprays fairly thick on the front of the word “blessings” and allowed a couple of hours to dry before adhering to my page with Glaz On.

I am so excited for the opportunity to play with Echo Parks Simple Life Collection. I love happy bright colors and this line is definitely that! 


I did a little happy dance when I realized the pocket page images fit Clear Scraps Recipe Stand perfectly! I used a mix of the pocket page images and pattern paper to cover all the chipboard. 



I used the 6" Stripes Mascil to add Embossing Paste to the Small Star Embellishments. While it was still wet I sprinkled glitter on and tapped off the extra. I layered them through out the mini book on the acetate pages.

Supplies Used:

•Clear Scraps (Recipe Stand, Mascil 6" Stripes, Small Stars)
•Echo Park Simple Life

Now we have PINKY.......

I am excited today to share a Clear Scraps Send It Clear card using Echo Parks Simple Life Collection.  I love the beautiful fall feel plus the amaizng Clear Scraps acrylic. 




I also made this little dishwasher hanging magnet to tell it the dishes are dirty or clean. 

Just write CLEAN when you start it or DIRTY when you unload it. 


Stay tuned all week for more fun projects!
