a couple different colors of ink (make sure they will work with acrylic)
pictures and paper
After the background was stenciled, on the acrylic page, the paper and photo was added to create a scrapbook page. All the elements were adhered with a tape runner. No special adhesive was needed for this project:)
Hi Clear Scraps fans! Have you tried your hands on one of Clear Scraps amazing word board frame? These are great as a home decor around the house. Today I would like to share with you my Blessed word board.
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!

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Hoping for a great week ahead of us. Today I've created this birthday card using the 12x12 acrylic sheet and 6" chicken wire mascils to create this birthday card. What I love about this project is it's very easy and fun to create. You can also make few more cards and several small projects using one acrylic sheet .
For the background look, I use 2 color spray paints. Then use a corner rounder tool on four corners
Thank you so much for stopping by ............until next time!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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."
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!
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.
