Trinket Box

Happy Wednesday, Nancy here today to share with you an acrylic box I made.  I love these little boxes that came out at the CHA Winter Mega Show.  

Box_acrylic_prima_clear scraps_nancy keslin

I chose to keep the box fairly simple, adding just a bit of lace sticker around the sides, along with a piece of Prima chipboard in the front.  

Box_acrylic_nancy keslin

The inside bottom was lined with a piece of Rowlux film, giving it a fun sea glass texture .

Finally for the top I added a large doily and a few bits and pieces of Prima flowers and fussy cut papers along with a few chipboard pieces.

This box was quite simple to assemble and embellish and will sit on my night stand to hold little trinkets while I sleep.




Build It Your Way Binder

Hello!  Jennifer here to share my project with one of my favorite Clear Scrap products! I am a huge fan of the Build It Your Way Binders and love creating mini books with them!  I used the 7.5x7.5 Small Acrylic Binder with the BIYW Acrylic Fun Tabs as my pages.  I wanted to make a mini book documenting my mission trip to Haiti this past spring!




For my cover, I used the 12 inch Chevron Mascil (another one of my favorites!) with modeling paste and a bit of spray ink! 


Here is my final effect! I lightly added yellow spray ink before lifting the Mascil.  


Here are my acrylic pages that I covered with patterned paper and embellished.  I also love to use tags, envelopes, and other inserts as pages! You can go to my blog and see more photos! 







Thank you for stopping by today!  Be sure to check out the different sizes of Build It Your Way Binders as well as many other acrylic AND chipboard albums! 

Have a wonderful day!

Hey there friends, Happy Monday!

It's Pinky today with one of my favorite unique albums that Clear Scraps makes, it's the Acrylic Sailboat Album and I decided to use my beach vacation photos to create it.

For the front cover I used modeling past on the bottom that I coated with Mica Powder, then I used the 6" Polka Dots Mascil for the one sail with some Krylon Gold Paint.

A Mixable Medley Mini Album~

Hi , Connie here with a really cute mini album using the Mixable Medley Album by Clear Scraps.  This album is half acrylic and half chipboard I adore the look of both elements together!  I hope you do too!!!



* The chipboard pages are covered with pattern paper. The edges are sanded, so the paper doesn't curl up. 

* The acrylic pages have journal boxes on them (front and back) the same place.  The adhesive won't show if the boxes are back to back. 

* The embellishments are added with glue dots and Zip Dry by Beacon. Foam dots are used too.



* The album has five pages cascading down.

* The paper edges are inked for a shading effect.




* The album is ready for some cute photos:)

Thanks for stopping by~

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a fun little mini album I made using the Mixable Sassy 8x8 Mini.  

Family tradtions_mini_album_nancy keslin_websters pages_clearscraps

I chose to keep this mini fairly simple by using the acrylic with the double sided pages to offer most of the interest.

I always enjoy the depth that the acrylic lends to my papers and embellishments.

Beautiful Book Stand

Happy Monday Clear Scraps friends!
Leah here with you today to share a sweet 6x6 Book Stand.


I stamped butterflies on the backside of the bookstand, then adhered pattern paper to the backside using Beacons ZipDry. Love that stuff, it dries so quick.


I used Stazon Ink to ink all around the edges of the Book Stand, and then also stamped on top of the
Clear Scraps Butterfly Mirror Embellishment.


I decided to make the photo interchangeable so I lightly glued the die-cut frame to make changing the photograph easier. If I ever clear off my cluttered desk, it will look SO cute there. :)

Have a great week!

Summer Lovin' with Clear Scraps

Hello friends! Jennifer here with a fun summer-themed piece I created using one of the XL Hearts.  There is a multitude of acrylic shapes to choose from in the Clear Scraps shop that can be your next home decor project!  


I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut my title as well as the large heart shape for my card stock background (which I used as a template).  I then cut "wedges" of different patterned paper and adhered in circular fashion.  


To give my edges some "pop", I used a foam applicator and applied Clearsnap Colorbox Surfacez in Safari Yellow.  I love the effect; its subtle yet noticeable!  


I thought at first I would just create a fun sign to hang in  our front entry way but then I changed my mind and made it into a layout of sorts!  I added embellishments from the collection I used to give my project layers.


I finished by adding some ribbon for hanging!   Thank you for reading today!  Hope this inspires you to do some crafting with one of Clear Scraps fun shapes! Have a great day!


Additional products used:  patterned paper, chipboard, enamel dots, stickers: Crate Paper; cardstock: Bazzill; ribbon: Snug Hug; adhesive: Beacon; misc: sewing machine, thread, Silhouette

Sweet Layout

Today's lattice inspired layout uses Clear Scraps 12 x 12 blank acrylic sheet to provide stability, while still allowing the see thru effect of the open lattice design. 


To create the lattice effect, you will simply weave 1/2 inch strips of 18 inch pattern paper or cardstock.  When you are finished, trim and adhere your ends to the layout. Now take 1/8 inch strips of pattern paper or cardstock and frame the edge of the layout. 

CS_july15_sweet LO_wprice

I colored the acrylic Pennant embellishment with an alcohol marker. To create the distressed look, I put a bit of alcohol down on my craft mat, dabbed a piece of burlap into the alcohol and then placed it on the colored pennant for approximately 5 seconds. The alcohol with lift the color on the pennant. I painted white acrylic paint on the back of the pennants to make the coloring pop.

Leah's Word of the Year

Happy Tuesday friends!
Did you select a Word of the Year for 2015?

At the end of 2014, I received some bad medical news regarding my health.
A couple of days after receiving the bad news, I saw a quote that resonated within me and left me with goosebumps running up my arms and down my spine.

It said, "Be Your Own Hero."

Screenshot 2015-07-06 13.39.06

After reading that quote, I knew what my word would be for 2015.
My word this year is HERO.


The medical news I received was a wake up call for me, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.

I am working on making myself healthy and getting my Diabetes under control.
To celebrate my Word of the Year, the HERO Word Frame was created.


I'm so thankful to have this Word Frame in honor of my WOTY. It hangs beside my work space in my craft room. It really is a huge motivator for me. When I think of a HERO, a Patriotic theme comes to mind, which is why I decorated it in the colors Red, White, and Blue.


Thank you for letting me share a small piece of my story with you. Wish me luck on continued success on my getting healthy journey and check out all the other Word Frames Clear Scraps offers!

Products Used:

Clear Scraps - HERO Word Frame

Welcome to your Beautiful New Day Clipboard.

Hello everyone and happy Monday!! Welcome to your beautiful new day/week. Today I am sharing with you this project I've created with Small Deco Clipboard and the 6" Chicken Wire Mascils . I love this kind of projects, they are fun and easy.


Note: The background is created with the mascils and spray paint on top of the acrylic. On this project the imperfection of stenciling and the text paper behind the acrylic gives it a vintage look that I love. Then rub a brown inkpad on the edge of the acrylic to complete the look.


Thank you so much for stopping by and checking us out here on Clear Scraps.

Until next time.....
