Send it Clear Happy Birthday!


Happy summer, Clear Scraps fam!


I have so many friends and family that have birthdays in July, I thought it was a great time to get creating for the upcoming celebrations. Clear Scraps makes that easy with their Send it Clear cards and mascils!

I used the Clear Scraps 6" Cupcake mascil, some lovely Faber Castell Glitter Bead Gel & Gelatos to create the design on the front panels of the card.


Once that was dry I put all the panels together and my birthday card is complete. Here is the inside of the card.


Quick and fun!


Have a wonderful day,

Leah Crowe

You Are Here: BIYW Small Acrylic Binder

Hello friends! Jennifer here today to share a cute mini I created using the Build It Your Way Small 7.5x7.5 Binder and

Fun Tabs Acrylic Pages! I have always loved Clear Scraps acrylic mini books so when the BIYW Binders were released I was so excited! I think they look classy and definitely are durable!  

My husband and I were asked to return to Haiti this past spring for another house build and I wanted to document some of our trip!




Each of the acrylic pages measure 6.5x6.5 which is perfect for your standard 4x6 photos!  


I left my pages "bare" but you can easily color your acrylic with alcohol ink or acrylic paint!  





I love using different items in my stash to create extra pages!  Here, I used a kraft gift bag that I decorated and added some journaling. Also, using 3x4 journaling cards works great too! It would also be fun to add some of the BIYW chipboard pages in as well! 




Thanks for stopping by! Check out the Clear Scraps shop to see the variety of BIYW Binders and pages!  


Additional products used:  patterned paper, die cuts, stickers, chipboard, brads, enamel dots, wooden shapes: Simple Stories; cardstock: Bazzill; washi tape: Queen and Co; bakers twine: Whisker Graphics; punches: Paper Shapers, Fiskars; adhesive: 3M, Beacon; misc: thread, sewing machine; kraft gift bag

Acrylic Tag..

Hello everyone. Hope you are all enjoying the fresh summer season. Today, I am sharing my version the acrylic tag. So much ways to use this tags. I love the size and that it can be a frame to showcase a little of your favorite photo. The picture and the patterned paper is glued onto the backside of the acrylic, then to embellish I used an acrylic sheet with words on top. You can also use this as a refrigerator magnet.


Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon.

Leah's June Tag

Hello Clear Scraps friends!

I hope your weekend was spectacular!
This tag I created so the kids could give to their daddy for Father's Day!


I used my electronic cutter to cut out several elements on this tag and layered them.

I used foam squares to pop the love you, Dad up off the page.


I haven't bought many new scrap supplies in the last year, so I have been enjoying going through my scrap stash to see what all I have squirreled away. This paper is Glitz Design, Fancy Pants, and American Craft.

Have a great week, friends!

Frame Layout by Wendy Price

Its no secret I love creating layouts with Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheets. For today's layout I sanded both sides to give the acrylic a frosted look. I pulled out some of my favorite stickers and Clear Scrap chipboard frames and filled the layout.

Winter Tag- By Susan Frase

Winter Tag

I know we are all thinking spring and summer NOT winter.

I wanted to share a tag we did last year when we did an event with our friends in the UK (Woodware Distributors).

This is very easy to duplicate and the results are fantastic. I have included a PDF that can be printed and used to walk you thru this very easy step by step tag.


Hope you enjoy playing with some new techniques.

A Shaker page with Clear Scraps!

Hi, Connie here with a stack of parking tickets that I thought would really cool used as a background for a scrapbook page.  The only thing is, they will move and that is how I came up with a Shaker page.  Clear Scraps to the rescue!!  The Dazed Round is what I need~


Start out by cutting a circle out of the center of the 12" paper.


Remove the plastic film from the Dazed Round by Clear Scraps and glue it over the circle cutout.   Beacon 1-IN-3 work great!  Arrange the tickets, in my case, on the acrylic Dazed Round.  When they are arranged to your liking, glue cardstock to the back of page.   You have just created a Shaker style page.  Decorate the front and tell your story!!


Clear Scraps products used: Acrylic Dazed Round. , 6" Chevron stencil and Chipboard Word embellishment (Surprise)



Paper: Bella Blvd.

Ink: Quick Quotes, S.e.i.

1st Cake layout

Hello Clear Scraps friends!

Today I am sharing a sweet 1st Birthday layout of my sweet grandson.


I used my electronic die cut machine to create the background and adhered that to my favorite 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheet.

It's fabulous, because you can put the layout against different backgrounds creating a different look each time.


Another Clear Scraps favorite are the Chipboard word titles. I used Surprise on the top right corner of the layout!
For this layout, I felt it looked fabulous as is.

Look at that cake face. (grins) He absolutely dug right in to his little birthday cake!

I hope you enjoyed this layout today!

Hello Clear Scraps fans! Today, I'm going to share with you all my tag for the month of June. This time, I've used another acrylic tag and the floral stencil by Clear Scraps.

I've used the floral stencil with some glitter paste to create the textured background and later detailed them using Copic markers and jewels.
