Spider Web Chipboard Embellishment Layout

Hello friends! It's almost Halloween and I have another fun Clear Scraps embellishment project to share!  I used the new Spider Web Chipboard Embellishment to add some spookiness to my page!


I am going to show you how I added some color and dimension to the chipboard!  First, I fully covered the chipboard in black paint.


After allowing the paint to dry, I added crackle paint from Ranger. Once dry, I lightly sanded the edges.


I wanted to add a bit of color so I lightly sprayed the chipboard with Distress Stain Spray in Marmalade.  I then adhered different patterned papers to the back of the web!



Here are a couple of photos of the rest of my layout!



Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the Clear Scraps shop to see all of the fun Halloween themed Chipboard Embellishments plus lots more! Have a great day!

Little Count Dracula...Layout

Hello everyone and happy Monday. This is Adora and I've created a halloween layout to share with you today. I used the 12 x 12 acrylic sheet and chipboard word title and black and purple spray paint. I thought the rugged spray paint on the edge gives this layout a spooky feel. I also use orange patterned paper and cut a paper banner shape for a touch of color.




Thank you so much for stopping by and happy halloween!!!


Spooky Clipboard Decor

Good morning friends! Leah with you today to share this spooky cute clipboard wall decor for Halloween.


The small landscape scallop clipboard was perfect to use the new chipboard embellishments we have in the store. I painted the spooky title with acrylic paint, then distressed it with a pearl pen.


I also spray painted the mascil spooky background ghosts onto the clipboard and colored the cobweb chipboard using my stazon ink pad real quick. I then used a silver pearl pen to add some depth to the webbing.


Have a happy weekend!

Not Too Scary Haunted Home Decor Craft


Hey there friends, it's Pinky today with a new project. 

So in our house it's a little weird, I have one son (and myself) who LOVE all things horror and Halloween and I have my other son who hates all things Halloween and horror (my autistic son) so I have to be careful what I have up and around to be mindful of my autistic son's needs.

I really try to keep things on the "not too scary" side. 

For this project I used the XL Rectangle Deco Top Frame which comes with chipboard and acrylic combination pieces. I spray painted the chipboard back using Krylon metallic gold paint, then on the font acrylic piece I removed the protective film from the back, I took the Clear Scraps Spiderweb Mixers, I used 2 sets. I placed them on the back of the acrylic and spray painted, using them as stencils.

After that I removed the film from the Clear Scraps Spiderweb Mixers and spray painted the back black. Now the reason I spray paint the back is because the front stays super shiny like glass with the awesome acrylic!

I also used the Acrylic Alphabet from Clear Scraps with black spray paint again and popped them up with pop dots. I adhered it altogether with Beacon adhesives and added some glitter paper and hand cut spiders. You could totally add flowers or something else, but I was happy when I saw the end result and decided against anymore embellishments. 

I hope you like my project today if you have questions feel free to jump on FB or message me!

Owl Halloween Wreath...

Its no secret that I love decorating for Halloween! The Clear Scrap Acrylic Owl Album is the perfect size for decorating a wreath with! 


I used the front of the acrylic album and one additional page to create the owl. For the solid acrylic owl piece, I sanded the front of the acrylic and then airbrushed orange alcohol markers through the Chevron Mascil to create a design for the belly. I airbrushed the cover piece owl (the one with cutouts for the eyes and belly) with a black alcohol marker. The eyes, feet and beak are cut from cardstock. 



The Chipboard Owl Album and Mini Acrylic Owl Album would be really cute decorated for Halloween also! 

Clear Scrap Supplies Used:
Owl Album
12 inch Chevron Mascil

Other Supplies Used:
Stampendous Leaf Diecut Set
Beacon Adhesive
Ranger Distress Inks
DIY Bangle Craft Wreath

Exploding Box


Hello everyone! It's Irene here with you all today. This time, I've going to share with you all one of my first ever exploding box card. On this project, I've used one of Clear Scraps acrylic frame to decorate part of the cover of the box.

Do you know that most of Clear Scraps acrylic pieces can be bent? On this project of mine, I've bent parts of the acrylic frame to create a more dimensional piece.


You can bend the acrylics to wrap around your projects or bend it downwards to create more height. Try experimenting with it!


Clear Box Decor~

Hi, Connie here with a gorgeous Clear Box by Clear Scraps.   This was created to house my  homemade soaps and keep them fresh and beautiful.


The box is easy to assemble.  Follow the instructions on the label and you should do fine. That is what I did.  I used a regular tape runner to secure the paper on the outside of the acrylic box.  The feet were put on with Beacon 3-IN-1. 



The front embellishments are secured with Beacon 3-IN-1 also.  Worked fantastic for this project.  The paper is a, really, vintage set by Basic Grey.  Yes, I'm working from my stash and I love it to see the stack get smaller.

Thanks for stopping by~

Mini Ghost Halloween Decor

Good morning Clear Scraps friends, are you ready for the weekend?


If you didn't know by now, I absolutely love all of the mini albums that Clear Scraps offers us, especially the teeny tiny cute key chain albums!


I took these Mini Ghosts off the key ring, and used the 6x6 mascils pumpkin faces and fall leaves to stencil the designs using acrylic paint onto the ghosts.


Once the paint dried, I lightly painted two coats of Glow in the Dark paint over all the ghosts.

Once both of those coats of paint dried, I removed the film from the back of the ghosts and distressed the edges using Stazon Inks.



I then found embroidery thread in coordinating colors to use as hangers and attached them to the ghosties.




Let's see how these guys look in the dark. :)


I had a heck of a time trying to get a good photo in the dark. I will try again soon and see if I get better results. I'm not sure, but I may need another coat or two of the Glow in the Dark paint.


It is still super cute in the day AND a bit of spooky at night.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for supporting Clear Scraps!

Spooky Layout with Clear Scraps

Hello friends! Jennifer here today to share a Halloween layout I created using the new Spooky Chipboard Script Word Title!   I love Halloween and couldn't wait to use this fun embellishment! There are six new titles for you to choose from! 


I used a combination of orange and black paint to color my chipboard! I used a foam brush to first apply black paint to the top half of the title. After allowing the black to dry, I applied the orange paint. I love how it turned out!


For my background, I used the 12 inch Spider Web Mascil with black and orange spray ink.  What a fun and easy technique to give your page an added layer!



Here are a couple close up shots of my page!










Thank you for stopping by today! Visit the Clear Scraps shop to check out the new chipboard titles and embellishments! Have a great day!

Additional products used: patterned paper, stickers, die cuts, wooden shape; enamel dots: Crate Paper; spray ink: Ranger;  cardstock: Bazzill; misc:  paint, thread, sewing machine 

FALL - Layout

Hello everyone!! It's me Adora and today my project is a layout I've created with the acrylic sheet, acrylic alphabet and acrylic ornate border. Do you know that you can make your own embellishments out of the acrylic sheet, you can stamp, draw or simply trace a shape that you want and cut.  It's easy, fast and you can use it on layouts or cards and other projects.




Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful fall season.



Not So Spooky Ghosts

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a fun family project I made using one of the Clear Scraps, Clear Acrylic Sheets.  I love making fun kid's crafts during the holidays and you can't go wrong with sweet little feet.  hee hee

Ghosts_nancy keslin_clear scraps_cricut_vinyl_

I began by tracing little feet onto the clear acrylic sheet.  My feet ranged in age from 6 months to 5 years.  Had I been more careful in the placement of the feet I could have gotten five little feet, but I easily fit four without any planning.


From there, I simply used my scissors to cut each foot shape out.  The acrylic sheets cut so easily with scissors.


From there, it was simply a matter of embellishing the "ghosts".  Some eyes cut with my Cricut from vinyl and some irRESISTible spray to give them some extra depth.


A quick hole punch with my Crop a Dile and I was ready to string them up.  


The owner's of these little feet loved their ghosties and couldn't wait to hang them.  I'm sure your littles will love them as well.



Altered Clipboard


Hello Clear Scraps fans! It's Irene here and today, I'm sharing with you all an altered clipboard which I've decorated using a huge mirror feather and some stencils by Clear Scraps.


For the background of this clipboard, I've used the heart wallpaper stencil by Clear Scraps. You can see that I've added the large mirror feather on the left of the clipboard. I've added some colors to it using liquid pearls.

Hope you all like this project. Happy creating!
