These cards were so fun to make and having an open faced "window card is just cool and neat to give. It really would work with any of the designs!

I love Halloween so I cannot wait to share these.

I hope you enjoyed my idea today! Go check out the newest designs and grab yours. 

Pinky Hobbs: Clear Scraps Designer


Today's layout features the 12 x 12 Blank Acrylic Sheets and 12 inch Dragonfly Mascil. 



1. Apply embossing paste to the front of the Blank Acrylic Sheet using the Dragonfly Mascil as a stencil.

Vacation Bible School layout

Good morning Clear Scraps friends.
I hope everyone had a wonderful first weekend of Autumn.

I celebrated by doing some cleaning and looking back at Summer with this layout.
I apologize for the shine on the layout, the sunshine was hiding on me. :)


The XL Dazed scallop circle is so fun to create with.
I traced the scallop onto my Websters Pages pattern paper and cut it out inside the traced line by 1/4".
The cut line was a bit wonky, so I jazzed up the edges by distressing them, then adhered the paper to the acrylic shape.


Have you tried the XL Clear Scraps shapes yet?

I LOVE them!!
I hope your day is fantastic!

Disney Fun Mini Album

Disney Fun Mini Album(resize)

Hi everyone! It's time for me to share another mini album with you all. This time, I would like to share with you all a custom acrylic wordbook by Clear Scraps.

Instead of using pattern papers, I've used tons of alcohol inks to add colors to this album.


To add to this album, I've used a mini mouse acrylic pieces by Clear Scraps. I've first run this piece through an embossing folder and later inked it.

Here are some pages in it.





Happy scrapping!


This year the Clear Scrap Design Team has been sharing their word of the year. After a bit of soul searching I decided my word should be BREATHE. Its a reminder to me to slow down, take a deep breath, enjoy the happy moments and not stress about the bad ones. Sometimes all you can do is BREATHE and know that you'll make it through. 




1. Paint chipboard backing. I literally poured my paints onto the chipboard and brushed it out haphazardly. I didn't worry about blending everything perfectly because I knew I was going to be building up layers with stenciling. 

2. Using the Spiral Dot Mascil, stencil paints onto the chipboard. 


3. Next stencil another color of paint onto the chipboard using the 6 inch Quarterfoil mascil. 

4. Stamp on the front of the acrylic word board with white Stazon. 

5. Flip the acrylic word board over and sand the back to create a frosted look. 

6. Ink the edges with white StazOn

7. Stamp images in Versamark and emboss with white embossing powder on vellum. Cut out and adhere to acrylic word board. 

8. Paint chipboard photo frames. Stamp. Adhere to acrylic word board.

Home Decor (fridge magnet)

Hello everyone and happy fall! it's a few days away, but absolutely felt it already arrived in my neck of the woods. I do love fall though :). The cool breeze and the comfort food that comes with it yum, plus the holidays and the looking forward to it. Anyhow this is Adora and today I am sharing this mini project I've created with the 12 x 12 acrylic sheet, 6" chicken wire mascils and small expression word - courage. This is actually a refrigerator magnet with one of my favorite bible verses.


You can make 4 of this with the acrylic sheet and that's the best part I think. I use spray paint to color the acrylic word and base. Print the bible verse onto a paper stock, then cut and adhere.



Thanks everyone for stopping by and once again happy fall....


Acrylic Top Load album

Woohoo! Thank Goodness its Friday!


I absolutely LOVE the cast acrylic on these top load albums.
The one I created with is the deco 8x8 top load album.

I created a few pages on the inside to give to my daughter so she can paste some photos in there to get started on an album for her little ones, and then create the other layouts to add in there.






It comes loaded with 10 top loading page protectors, with the ability to add even more pages later.

Check out all the other gorgeous Top Load albums here, and have a great weekend!

Family Banner with Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with a family banner idea using the chipboard Pennant Banner set by Clear Scraps.  I love the big banner pieces, really makes a statement:)


This was such a fun project and will be so cool in my crafty space.  I used the back of the pennant to journal the photograph.  If I ever want to take the pennant apart, to make pages from the photo's, that will be easy to do.



Designer note: The Mirror Feather is stamped with StazOn ink using a Script stamp.  The "Journey" word is inked up with black StazOn ink on the backside of the word.


Meet my awesome family (my peeps)~

Grateful Card

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a simple gretting card I made with the Belgrave Send it Clear card base.

Grateful_card_clear scraps_nancy keslin

I have lots of cute little journaling cards and pocket cards lying around and found they are the perfect size for embellishing the beautiful Send it Clear Card shapes.

Grateful_clear scraps_nancy keslin

By adding in an extra journaling card, I was able to add not only a lovely sentiment, but a place to write a sweet note to a friend or loved one without marring the beautiful journaling card I added to the back.


What is your favorite way to embellish cards?  How do you use your journaling cards and pocket page cards?



Best Day: Clear Scraps Mirror Frames

Hello!  It's Jennifer and I'm here to share a layout I created using the very cool Rectangle Deco Mirror Frame  and the 6 inch Circles Mascil. The mirror shapes give so much "bling" to your projects! They are one of my absolute favorite Clear Scraps products!


I cut a 2x3 piece of patterned paper to insert into the middle of my frame. I then added epoxy words for my title as well as added small embellishments. 


Using the 6 inch Circles Mascil, I lightly applied modeling paste to my cardstock and allowed to dry. I then used different sized circle punches to add to the centers of random circles. 


Here are some close ups of the rest of my page!  




Thank you for stopping by!  Check out these products plus the new chipboard shapes and words!  What is your favorite mirror frame or shape?  Have a great day!

Additional products used: patterned paper, die cuts, epoxy stickers:  Pink Paislee; date stamp, journaling pen: American Crafts; cardstock: Bazzill; enamel dots: Simple Stories, Crate Paper; adhesive: Beacon, Tombow; modeling paste, stapler: Teresa Collins Designs; misc: thread, sewing machine

End of Summer...

For today's layout, I used a nail polish water marbling technique on a Clear Scraps XL Dot Shape to create an end of summer beach layout. A tutorial on Water Marbling on Clear Scrap Acrylic can be found HERE


Supplies Used:


I used a large plastic container of water to nail polish marble the XL Dot Shape. There is a lot of trial and error with this technique. Some nail polishes spread out over the water better. 

The nail polish effect on this piece reminded me of water so I thought it would make a great background for a beach layout.

Star Acrylic Border Layout

Hello friends!  Jennifer on the blog today with a layout I created using the Star Acrylic Border!  It's back to school time so I made a page featuring my cute nephew going to preschool!  And the Star Border goes so well with the patterned paper! 



I have a tutorial on how I colored my acrylic border!  First remove the plastic protective film from both sides of the border! Using a cotton applicator, lightly dab alcohol ink into the acrylic.  Go as light or dark as you prefer!  





After allowing the ink to dry, I used a white paint pen to outline the edges of the border!


I adhered my border using Beacon 3-in-1 Liquid Craft Glue.  I then added embellishments such as brads and die cuts to accent.






I used a chipboard element along with letters from my stash for my title!


Thank you for stopping by today! Head to the Clear Scraps shop to see all of the new fun releases!  Have a wonderful day!

Additional products used:  patterned paper, brads, enamel dots, die cuts, chipboard: Simple Stories; cardstock: Bazzill; chipboard letters and date stamp: American Crafts;  inks: Ranger; misc:  sewing machine, thread.  

Altered Huge Binder

Altered Binder by Irene Tan(resize)

Hello friends! Have you tried decorating one of Clear Scraps acrylic binder? This binder are so gorgeous and so fun to decorate.

To decorate my binder, I've used some pattern papers, chipboard, inks and stamping. Besides that, I've also used a large acrylic "family" word by Clear Scraps.


To add colors and details on the acrylic words, I've used some pattern papers.


On the side of this binder, I've used a border mascil and texture paste to add some textures and dimension. 

See you all again soon!
