Scalloped Mini Art Frame

Hello everyone. This is Adora and today I am sharing this mini art frame project, I've created with small scalloped mini clipboard. I really like how it turned out. I love the print on this patterned paper, and this scalloped mini acrylic frame is perfect to make it into an art piece.


I trace and cut the shape of the paper onto the acrylic, then adhere it on the back side. Add the cardboard frame and embellishments on top.

Thank you all for stopping by and hope you find some inspiration to create with Clear Scraps.


She Blooms Prayer Journal~

Hi, Connie here with a Prayer Journal using the acrylic 5" X 7" binder by Clear Scraps.  This is a mix or match product, making it perfect for creating  the binder most suited for your project.  I love that I can make it my own.  Let me show  you ~

Clear scraps_acrylic binder_c. mercer

I started with the binder first and added a piece of stenciled sticky back canvas to cover the white plastic.   I used a border stencil by Clear Scraps to add a design.  They make some really cute ones! The border was stenciled on using black acrylic paint.

Pockets were created for scripture cards and inspirational words that I wanted to document.    The chipboard tabbed pages where covered with patterned paper on both sides.  The pages are acrylic.   I have used words and titles, as headers, for these pages.

Christmas in September

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Clear Scraps blog.  Nancy here today to share with you a fun holiday project I made featuring the new Pallet X-Mas Tree Chipboard.  This tree is so fun, and it is a great size, 20x28.5.  It will make a great addition to my holiday decor.  


Since these layers are so wide, I decided to use gift wrap for each of the "pallets".  They were easy to cut down to size and then decoupage onto the chipboard.  A few mother of pearl buttons and a bit of distress and....

This project was quick and easy to create.  I can't wait to see yours.



September Tag by Jennifer

Hello! I can't believe it is September already!  Today I'm sharing my tag for this month and I'm going to show you how I created it!  


After removing the protective film from both sides of the acrylic, I got out my Teal Staz-On ink and a favorite feather stamp.  I carefully stamped the front of the tag ensuring to re-ink each time. Staz-On is perfect for stamping on Clear Scraps acrylic!  Just be sure to allow ample drying time before you add any additional embellishments. 


I set aside my tag and grabbed a few coordinating colors of alcohol ink and one of the Feather Mixers.  I simply dropped small amounts of ink onto the top of the acrylic allowing colors to blend.  It's really fun to play around with this technique and it doesn't have to be perfect!  


Here is my end result...I did end up adding a bit of teal to the mix as well.  I layered pieces of ephemera under my feather and added some bakers twine to finish. 


Here is a close up of the feather stamping! 


Thanks for stopping by today!  I  hope you enjoy all of the wonderful tags our design team has created this month!  

Additional products used:  patterned paper, die cuts: Pink Paislee; feather stamp:  Teresa Collins Designs for Fiskars; sentiment stamp:  Dylusions for Stampers Anonymous; bakers twine: Whisker Graphics; ink: Ranger; ribbon: Snug Hug; adhesive: Beacon Crafts, 3M;  misc: thread, sewing machine.

Fall Tag by Wendy Price

The weather is starting to cool down a bit here. A sign that fall is just around the corner! For my tag this month, I created a fall tag using the Clear Scraps Chipboard Tag Album


I placed a leaf die on the chipboard and ran it through the die cut machine. I used a shim of extra paper to get a good impression. The wafer thin dies won't cut through the chipboard but they will cut the surface of the chipboard. I was able to pull away the chipboard top layer revealing the fuzzy chipboard layer underneath. I repeated this technique on the entire tag to create the leaf pattern.

CS_sept 16_tag_wprice

I colored the tree with alcohol markers. Spritzed it with blending solution to mottle the colors and gave it a coat of Glossy Accents.

A day at the Beach~

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page showcasing a couple of the new 6" stencils by Clear Scraps.   My hubby and I  recently went to the beach and I was so ready to make a page using the Ocean Friends and Beach Fun 6" stencils by Clear Scraps.  The stencils can easily be made into embellishments by cutting out the images, after you have stenciled them on cardstock.  

Stencils_clear scraps_c.mercer

I also stenciled directly on the scrapbook page.  If you have a stash of stencils , you will always have embellishments to be creative with.  So many uses for them.

Clustered in the corner of the scrapbook page makes a great statement and themes the page.

Add color to the chipboard piece " Together" and you have the making of a title, for your page.

Back to School Tag

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Clear Scraps blog.  Nancy here today to share with you my tag for September.  I did a super fun new (to me) technique to create a marble affect.

Tag_clearscraps_nancy keslin_marble

To do the marbling for this project you will need the following

  • Bucket of water
  • Variety of spray paint colors
  • Stick

Marble_supplies_tag_clear scraps

Step 1:  Fill pail with water.  Make sure that the pail you are using is big enough that you can fully submerge the item you wish to marble.  The paint will stain your pail, so a liner is a good idea.  (note, you can see previous projects in the bottom of my pail?)

Pail_clear scraps_tag

Step 2:  Spray paint, one color at a time, onto the water's surface.  I have found spray paint works the best for this technique, but you can also use nail polish...acrylic paints do not work, promise.  Use stick to swirl paints together.

Paints_clearscraps_pail_nancy keslin

Step 3:  Remove protective film from one side of the tag, leaving other side covered.  Insert tag into the pail at a slight angle, unprotected side up.

Marble_tag_nancy keslin

The paint dries fairly quickly as there is just a slight film of paint on top of the water to begin.  From there, embellish the tag as desired.  I used bits and pieces of paper tags from an old Prima Marketing collection along with a Julie Nutting stamp.
