December 2015



Today I'm sharing a project I created to remind me to focus on my word of the year...breathe! This time of the year is so chaotic and stressful. Sometimes you just need to take a deep breath and remember to enjoy the moment. 



Ink the edges of the acrylic word with White StazOn. (Breathe was custom made but there are lots of great words to choose from in the store.)

Stamp a grid design on the acrylic word.

Adhere ornament die-cuts to the layout.

Holiday Mixable Album

Hello friends! We are in the swing of the holiday season so today I'm sharing my Holiday Mixable Album!  If you haven't tried the Mixable Albums you must! There are many varieties of shapes and themes!  


The first page is an acrylic star which I covered the bottom half with patterned paper and embellishments.



The next page is a chipboard page in the shape of a stocking. I covered both sides with patterned paper then sanded the edges using my sanding tool.  



Page three is an acrylic shaped ornament. I covered the bottom half with patterned paper and then lightly lined the edges of the entire page with white acrylic paint. I think the white helps the page "pop"!  



This page is probably my favorite shape in the book: a snowman!  I covered the chipboard in different patterns and again lined the edges with white paint. 


 I covered the entire back of this page with patterned paper. I then took a fine black journaling pen and went around the edges twice. 


The last page is an acrylic shaped present which is perfect for a 4x6 photo!


Thanks for stopping by today! Which is your favorite Mixable Album?  Have a great day!

Additional products used:  patterned paper, brads, wood veneers, die cuts, stickers, enamel dots: Simple Stories; stamp: American Crafts, journaling pen; misc: thread, sewing machine, doily, bakers twine, ribbon. 


Train Banner

Good morning friends!

Today I have this cute chipboard train banner to share with you today.


Please excuse the bad photograph. It was rainy and the only place I could find to take a picture.

I dubbed the train banner The Polar Express. We LOVE that movie here during Christmas.


Here are some photos before I put the banner all together.



I think this will hang up nicely in my sun room once we get our Christmas decorations hung up!

Have a wonderful week!

Acrylic Card Holder with a twist!

Hi, Connie here to share with you an original design project using acrylic sheets and stencils by Clear Scraps.  This is a cute way to display and organize Christmas or Holiday cards.  In my case I'm using this to display vintage Christmas cards. Take a look~


I used one acrylic sheet for the top part and stenciled it with the 12 x 12 Nordic Snowflake stencil (white acrylic paint) by Clear Scraps.  The pocket is a sheet of 12 x 12 pattern paper cut in half. Adhere one to each side.


I will be teaching this class at Craft Crossing TODAY!!!!! 


 The hanger is a junkin' find from Florida.  The wood part is painted and stenciled with the 12 Nordic Snowflake stencil by Clear Scraps.  I know you will never look at a cloths hanger the same way again :)

Products used:

12 x 12 clear acrylic sheet by Clear Scraps

twine, pattern paper, embellishments, white acrylic paint, buttons.

Perfectly Clear Christmas Card by Pinky


Hey there friends, I LOVE Christmas card making, and I love making them from the beautiful Clear Scraps acrylic, it really says WOW! Pinky here today with a card created using the Clear Scraps Acrylic Pennant Banner.

CutCardStock Clear Acrylic Snowflake Card Connie Crystal Pinky Hobbs Clear Scraps7

For this card I used my Sizzix to create the front with dies and shimmery cardstock, then I stamped snowflakes on it, then I added a stamped sentiment adhering it to the front. Pearl pen added to the cover with some glitter...

I also added a simply off white circle to the inside for my personal message. 

Then some pretty ribbon to tie it up and VOILA!

Beautiful and very heartfelt. Merry Christmas friends, have a wonderful creative month.
