I Can Do This mini
February 26, 2015
Hi again! Raechelle with another album to share, this one is the super cute Mini Mixable Tiny 3.5x5 Album. I decided to use some positive quotes to fill this little cutie. This album came together quickly and would make a great gift for a loved one or friend.
The mixture of clear acrylic and chipboard add visual interest along with the pretty edge work.
For more images you can see them on my blog.
Be sure to check out all the fun mini albums and key chains that Clear Scraps has to offer!
Twinkle, Twinkle little Star!
February 25, 2015
Happy hump day Clear Scraps friends!
Today I have this sweet little Mixable 8" x 9" baby album.
This album is just So fun to put together, I can't wait to give this to my daughter.
This rattle is actually acrylic, but I chose to cover it with paper and sand it.
These photos are of my grand-daughter when she was born last year.
When working on a mini album I tend to get my photos printed, then work on covering all my chipboard pages with paper and cut out.
Once that is complete, putting the finishing touches on an album usually goes pretty quickly. I just love making them, and they make wonderful gifts too!
There are lots of new mixable albums here to check out.
Thanks for stopping in today!
Little Black Dress Mixable Medley Album
February 24, 2015
When it comes to scrapbooking, I have a lot of stuff.
I have so much stuff… I should never buy another sheet of scrapbook paper. (but I will )
I love paper. I love pretty patterns. I love mini albums. (so much to love)
Lately, I’ve been on a quest to use more of the stuff I have on hand.
So, when it came to making this Mixable Medley Album for Clear Scraps,
I pulled from one of my favorite collections, the “Little Black Dress” collection from Basic Grey.
This album also uses the New Oval Fancy Mirror Frame.
To make the mirror stand out and give the album a vintage feel, I sponged “Spiced Chai”
Stazon Ink onto the back of the acrylic cover leaving the center of the mirror clear.
Have a Great Day!
Acrylic Box by Irene
February 23, 2015
Hello everyone! Have you seen Clear Scraps new acrylic box? This is another of my favorites among the new releases. The acrylic boxes are perfect to be altered into an elegant and gorgeous gift.
I did not put tons of stuffs on it. I add some colors using pattern papers and some soft and feminine embellishment on it. I try to kept most of the clear aspect of the acrylic boxes to maintain the elegant look of it.
To add some details on it, I've stamped on it. Make sure you use solvent based ink or permanent ink to stamp on acrylic.
Hope you all like this version of my acrylic box. I might just try to alter another acrylic box which are more masculine. Hope to see you again soon!

Recital Clipboard Decor
February 21, 2015
Hi there, Lisa here today to share another of our new products, the Small Regular Portrait Clipboard. I used it to create a home decor piece of my daughter in her ballet recital costume. The photo is tucked in behind the secure frame so that I can change it out each year if I'd like. The actual clip can hold the recital tickets, too. There are so many fun ways I can think to use this clipboard to hold tickets and photos in any theme!

Friends Word Frame
February 17, 2015
Good Morning friends, I hope your week is off to a great start!
Today on the blog I wanted to share this fantastic 14" x 18" Friends Word Frame.
The word frames come with a chipboard back and acrylic piece for the top.
I started by decoupaging papers to the chipboard backing.I then placed my photos behind the open flower and oval section, traced the shapes, then cut out my photos. For the flower section, I popped up the photos on foam dots to make it the blooms come to life.
For the flower pots I inked the mascil patterns on the pattern paper.
Add a little or a lot of embellishments, and hang it up! So FUN!!!
Have you checked out our other Word Frames and Mascils?
Summer- a New Mixable Album
February 16, 2015
Raechelle here sharing another wonderful new CHA album release. This one is the Mixable Beach 8x9 Album which is a fun mixture of both acrylic and chipboard.
I added a lot of little details to this that make a huge impact on the final album. I used texture paste along the bottom of each page to create a sandy effect. Once dry, I rubbed several different shades of tan and brown ink pads to give it more dimension. Adding some shells that we collected on the beach that day was the perfect way to finish this off.
I love the way this album turned out and t's a great way to remember this beautiful day!
to see the entire album you can click here to go to my blog.
You can find this awesome album here, along with a great variety of fun, innovative and new products that Clear Scraps has to offer.
Home Sweet Home
February 15, 2015
A quick share today to show you the Mini Album I made using Clear Scraps
New Mixable Home Album.
My "Home Sweet Home" album is a 8" x 9" Acrylic & Chipboard mixed Album.
I used chipboard stickers from My Mind's Eye "Sweetest Thing" collection and
various scrapbook papers to decorate my album.
My favorite part of the album is the fence.
Since I love the look of a white picket fence, I sprayed the clear acrylic fence with white spray
paint. Now I have a white picket fence.
Have a Great Day!

Hello everyone! This is Adora and today I am sharing with you this simple project I've created featuring the Dress Form Mirror Embellishment and Desk Page Frame.
