Notes Clipboard

Hello and happy Friday everyone! Today I am sharing this project I've created using the acrylic large scalloped portrait clipboard and 12" Numbers Stencils. This is so much fun to make and to have for myself :)


How to: Find the stencil that you love, It's the numbers stencil for me.  Then position it onto the back surface of the clipboard. Use a tape to hold the stencil intact, apply spray paint in small burst to avoid fuzzy edges. Next step; When the paint is dry, smear the inkpad all over the expose acrylic. Then with a little  wet (acetone)  paper towel  wipe out the middle part. Then use a patterned paper for backing and attached with glue and brads.


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


Sew Happy Stitching Through Acrylic With Pinky



Hey there friends, it's Pinky today with a wonderfully easy project for those busy crafters!

Did you know you can sew right through the Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheets and Send It Clear Cards? You can with the right needle and a regular sewing machine. I wanted to add stitching since this card was based on a quilt style, so I took each flap on the card and used my zig-zag stitch.

After that I assembled the card, and it only took me 20 minutes. It's not only beautiful but really unique.

The Cutie Album and Pion Design~

Hi, Connie here with a half chipboard, half acrylic card made from the Mixable Cutie Album by Clear Scraps.  This album comes with five pages.  I used the first two pages to create the card. 




* Cover the chipboard with some pretty pattern paper. I used paper's by Pion Design. Gorgeous vintage designs.

* Stencil the acrylic cover with random patches of a design.  I used the Chevron Stencil by Clear Scraps.  The ink is StazOn.

*  I used a tag from the paper set and added twine, a flower and trim to decorate the front. 

* The inside of the card has a vintage photo copy and the sentiment.

* Tie the two pieces together with twine.

Layout with mascils!


Hello Clear Scraps fans! It's Irene here and today, I'm sharing a layout which I've used tons of mascils by Clear Scraps to create the background and the title.


For the background of this layout, I've used a brick wall mascil with some texture paste to create the textured brick wall design and later, I've misted it with some paints to ad colors to it.


I've also used the acrylic feathers mixers by Clear Scraps to embellish this layout. I've used alcohol ink to colored it and later outlined it with permanent marker. Besides that, to create the title, I've used the "Fruit Of The Spirit" mascil and some white ink.

See you soon!

Good Morning friends!

Memorial Day is coming up this Monday.  A time to remember our fallen heroes that help keep our country free, just as we honor those who stand duty today to keep us safe. In honor of our soldiers I created two Patriotic cards using Clear Scraps 12x12 Acrylic sheets. I just LOVE using these!


and the inside

Words escape me as I pause to think about all our Men and Women who fight to protect us, so I simply say Thank You! Thank you!

Spring Pennant Photo Banner

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a fun banner I made using the Small Pennants Banner and Dragonfies Mirror Embellishments.  I really love the new mirrored embellishments, they add such a unique touch to my projects.

Banner_clear scraps_crate paper_nancy keslin

Right now I have this banner hanging in my home, but I am thinking when I am ready to change it out, the acrylic backs will be perfect for adding a few extra photos to...with just a few binder rings, my banner can become a mini album.  How fun is that?

Magical Mixable Album

Hello! Jennifer here today to show you the album I created using the new Magical Mixable Album! Summer is right around the corner and I'm sure many families will be planning a vacation!  This fun album measures 8 x 9 with cascading acrylic and chipboard pages!  



The first page is a cute acrylic "viewfinder' page. I loaded the front of it up with lots of embellishments and my title!  




I used black acrylic paint to cover the chipboard pages.  The first chipboard is in the shape of a ticket which is the perfect size for your 4x6 photos!  







The second acrylic shape is a camera! Usually I don't full cover the acrylic with paper  but this time I wanted my photo to "peek through" the center of the page!  




The next chipboard page is a rectangle base with Mickey ears!  Perfect for a Disney themed book! :)



Lastly, we have an acrylic shaped castle!  I chose to leave the acrylic bare but there are so many great options on coloring/covering this page!  



If you haven't had a chance to play with the Mixable Albums,  you must..they are a lot of fun!  Check out the Clear Scraps store for numerous choices! Have a wonderful day!

Additional products used:  paper, brads, enamel dots, die cuts, wooden veneer shapes, photo over lay, chipboard: Simple Stories; misc: paint, ribbon

Clear Scrap and Stampendous Wrap Up...

It's the last day of our cross promo with Stampendous and we have Adora with Wendy!

Be sure to check out FB page for a GIVEAWAY as well, plus Stampendous.


Hello everyone!  As you  know this week is all about Clear  Scraps  and Stampendous  together. So many possibilities for all kinds of projects.  And for my project  I've created this simple - "I am Thinking About You"  card. This is a 5.1/2 square card.

Supplies used: 12x12 Acrylic Sheet and Say it Today Perfectly Clear Stamp Kit  and Encrusted Jewel Kit Embossing Powder.


Cut strips of acrylic as shown, then apply several color of Stazon inkpads by  simply smearing directly onto the acrylic.


 Assemble the strips onto a patterned paper to form a frame, cut the edge and attach onto the front of the black folder card stock.  Stamp the sentiment onto a patterned paper, then cut to form a banner shape. Cut a piece of acrylic into a banner shape to hold the stamped sentiment. Put them all together then add a small flower for embellishment.


Thank you so much for stopping by and head on to Stampendous blog  for more....


Now we have WENDY!

For today's project I created a Busy Book to keep little ones entertained. I've had an idea to create a Busy Book with a Clear Scrap album for awhile now, but once I started flipping through my Stampendous stamps for this week, the ideas started flowing. 




Clear Scraps Acrylic Wave Album became the base for my project. I used Stampendous Cling The Look to create a braiding page.


The hair is embroidery floss that has been dyed with alcohol ink refills. I created bundles of hair and adhered them to the top of the scalp with Fabric Tac. 



The next page is a woodland forest scene for kids to play with. The stamps have been stamped on paper and adhered to chipboard for stability. I die cut the stamped animals out. Additional animals were die cut from magnetic sheet and adhered to the chipboard animals. My original plan was to have magnetic sheet behind the forest scene so kids could play directly on it, but the magnetic sheets were not powerful enough to hold the animals with pattern paper between the two. Time for Plan B... kids can play with the animals in the forest scene and then store them on a magnetic sheet on the adjoining page. 


For the next page, I adhered the pattern paper behind the acrylic so the page can become a wipe-off board to pratice ABC's. Wipe-off markers easily wipe off the acrylic. 


Adjacent to the Practice ABC's page is a Lace Up page. I cut two 1 inch by 4 inch pieces of acrylic from Clear Scraps Blank Sheet. I sanded them and punched holes down the sides. I adhered both pieces down with tape, leaving a slight gap behind the two pieces. Thread a piece of thin ribbon through the  holes and lace. 

Supplies Used:

  • Clear Scraps Acrylic Wave Album, Blank Sheet
  • Stampendous (Cling The Look, Cling Build a Bouquet, Cling Pop Up Forest, Pop Up Forest Die Cut Set, Tiny Alphabet)
  • Beacon (Zip Dry, Fabric Tac)
  • May Arts Ribbon
  • Spectrum Noir markers
  • other (beads, embroidery floss, pattern paper, alphabet stickers)

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page and card using Clear Scraps products\ along with some very cool stamps by Stampendous!  First up the scrapbook page~


Using the Clear Scraps 12" Chevron Stencil along with the Dress Form Stamps by Stampendous! the background was created on the Bo Bunny pattern paper.  The ink used is by Ranger.


The Word Title (together) by Clear Scraps  was inked with black StazOn ink.  Very easy and effective way to add color to the acrylic embellishments.  Next up is the card~


The background for the card is created the same way using the Chevron Stencil by Clear Scraps.  The Dress Form Stamps by Stampendous! was stamped on Kraft cardstock and cut out.  The sentiments are from the Happy Greetings Set by Stampendous!  A must have set.

We're back! Stampendous & Clear Scraps with Jennifer and Pinky!

Jennifer is up first:

Hello friends! It's Jennifer and my turn to share what I created for the Clear Scraps + Stampendous blog hop!  I made two cards with the lovely stamps I was sent!

For my first card, I cut a 12x12 Acrylic Sheet to 4.5 x 5 and stamped with Staz On ink in Black. I used the butterfly and flowers from the Jumbo Rubber Cling Spring Boquet set.  



Then with a Q-tip, I lightly added alcohol ink in different colors to the flowers.  



Inside my card, I used the a sentiment from the Thoughtful Wishes Clear Stamp set.  



For my second card, I used the Birds and  Cage Clearly Accent Embellishments to accent the front. 


I first colored the bird with Watermelon Ranger Alcohol Ink and added a black enamel dot for its eye. 


I colored the cage with Lettuce Ranger Alcohol ink. After drying, I stamped with the scroll from the Jumbo Rubber Cling Boquet Set.  I love how it turned out! I added some cute yellow and blue ribbon that Stampendous sent, as well!


The inside is stamped with a sentiment again from the Thoughtful Words Clear Stamp Set. I love how a few of the sayings are curved! Very cute!



Thanks so much for stopping by! Check out the Stampendous blog to see what their team did with our Clear Scrap products! Hope you've found lots of inspiration this week! Have a great day!

Leah here with you to share this paw~sitively adorable layout
combining Clear Scraps & Stampendous!


I added Stampendous Embossing Powder (Encrusted Jewel Blue Kit) around the edge of my pattern paper, then adhered that to the backside of Clear Scraps 12x12 acrylic sheet. I also added Stampendous embossing powder to the Clear Scraps Swirls Border.


It looks incredible in person!
I also got to play with Stampendous Pop up Kitties Cling Stamps and Cat Sayings.
I colored the kitty head, body, bow and basket using my Copic markers.
Using Stazon ink I also stamped some of Cat Sayings on my photograph and in several places around the layout. I think it is so adorable!

Have a wonderful day.
