Hey there Clear Scraps family and friends, its PINKY today with one last Halloween project just for fun! I am loving the 6" Happy Skeletons Stencil/Mascil.

So I decided to make a Send It Clear Card in fact it is the Fancy Send It Clear Card. I used the 6" Happy Skeletons Stencil/Mascil and modeling paste with GLITTER sprinkled on it for the two flaps.

Now I will give you a tip for the Send It Clear Cards, for the clear stickers, they work amazing after setting on the card 24 hours. Also just bend the sticker on the sheet to apply, never touch them with your fingers!

Fleur-de-lis plant Poke!

Today I used the fleur-de-lis Shaker to make plant pokes. you can get these at Clear scraps.


I wanted them to represent our color here in New Orleans so I added black cardstock to the inside along with some Glamour Sequins that you can get here at Clear Scraps.


I then added some gold stickles along the edges to give that sparkle.


Added a stick to the back of the shaker that way could poke it into the plant   I then added a  gold bow to each stick. There you have it the perfect touch to your home.

Now all the papers and little quotes are from the Creating Made Easy October Main Kit, which was simply adorable!

I actually used the paper from the October Kit for the base, then spray painted the top chipboard layer with silver spray paint and sprinkled it with black glitter. Inside is black and silver glitter as well!

On the card I simply stenciled the Dancing Skeletons on to the front of black card stock, and trimmed it out for the face of the card. Trimmed out a fun quote from the October Kit and popped it on. Perfect for mass cards if you need them for a party or what now. 

FUN projects, I love these stencils!

Happy Crafting Friends,

Family Summer Mini Album

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a mini album I made using the Cassy 8x8 Mixable Album.  

Family_mini album_clear scraps_mixable_ chipboard_ nancy keslin

Mixable albums are a mix of acrylic and chipboard pages.  They offer many opportunities for embellishment; and with double sided papers, you can do a lot with just a few sheets.

Family_mini album_nancy keslin

Of course I added bunches of flowers and layered embellishments to add depth, texture, and interest to the project.

Home Decor with the Swirl Pumpkin Mascil

Hi! It's Jennifer and I'm sharing a fun little home decor piece I created using the 6 Inch Swirl Pumpkin Mascil!  I love all things fall and this pumpkin trio is too cute!  Using a wood canvas, I covered the front with white chalk acrylic paint.  


I then secured my Mascil with washi tape and carefully painted with my orange and green acrylic paint. I have to say I haven't quite perfected this  yet and did get some bleeding. But, overall I'm pretty happy with my result.  After my paint was dry, I lightly sanded the edges of the wood to give it a distressed look. 


I then adhered some cute pumpkin patterned paper and embellishments to finish!  My sign is all ready to sit on my mantle and will last for many years to come! 


Check out all of the fun Mascils by visiting the Clear Scraps shop! Have a great day!  

Additional products used:  patterned paper, die cuts: Echo Park Paper; adhesive: Beacon Adhesives, 3M; misc:  buttons, sewing machine, thread, acrylic paint. 





Trick or Treat and a card~

Hi, Connie here with a fun Halloween project using the Jack O Lantern stencil and the Basic Door chipboard piece by Clear Scraps.  Candy treat bags and a card were created.  The jack o lantern stencil was used for three purposes, the background on the card, the embellishment for the treats and the door jack o lantern.  Pretty useful stencil!!!

Jacko'lantern1_clear scraps_c.mercer

Card instructions:

The background was created by stenciling on white cardstock, using the 6" brick stencil and the 6" jack o lantern stencil, with black and orange inks.   The door was heat embossed with black and purple embossing powder.  One jack o lantern was stenciled for the chipboard door, trimed out and attached.

Jackolantern2_clear scraps_c.mercer

Stickers and twine were added to complete the card.  This could easily be displayed at the treat bowl or the door as a welcome sign.  My idea was to display it by the treat bowl.

Jackolantern3_clear scraps_c.mercer

The treat bags were fun to make and so easy!! I love easy and cute.  Stencil one sheet of jack o lanterns, with orange ot balck ink,  and use a scallop or round punch to cut them out.  Attach the pumpkin to a small bag.  Add the candy and tie closed with twine.

Planner Supply Holder

Angel Here today sharing with you a Clear Box Holder from Clear Scraps that I created to hold  my planner supplies.


This is perfect to hold your stickers, pens, stamps, travels notebooks and accessories.


Here I used white thickers to spell out my word planner and also used small stickers to spell out the supplies under it.


I added Prima Flowers and a twine bow to the outside of the box with a few chipboard embellishments.


All I did was add pattern paper (Blue Fern Garden Life Collection) to the back sides and front panel by tracing the panels on the paper and cutting them out.Then I adhered it with Beacon Adhesives.

This makes the perfect decor on your desk or anywheres in your home. You can even make one of these to put your mail in.

Shakin With the Mouse

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a fun new printer tray from Clear Scraps, the Mouse Printer Tray.

Mouse_nancy keslin_clearscraps

As the children have gotten older, the number of characters and therefore photos we take at Disneyland has rapidly reduced.  This little printer tray is just perfect for showcasing a few of the photos we took at breakfast.

Mouse_nancy keslin_clearscraps

I began by painting each layer with black gesso.  I love using gesso when working with chipboard as it allows for a smooth surface and doesn't absorb into the chipboard the way acrylic paint sometimes does.  Helpful hint....mark the top and bottom of your pieces when preparing so you paint the "right" side, therefore making it much easier to assemble.

Mouse_nancy keslin_clearscraps

I filled each section with either photos or patterned paper and then filled the ears with a variety of sequins and other bits.  It is fun the way things "move" within the tray, making it a bit more interactive.

Thanks for stopping by.


Clear Scraps Fall Wreath

Hello friends! It's Jennifer and I'm back to share a fun home decor wreath that is easy to create!   Did you know Clear Scraps sells XL Acrylic Letters?  I was able to snag one at a recent Scrapbook Expo where Clear Scraps had a booth!  Today, I'm going to show you how I created my project! 


All Clear Scraps acrylic has a protective film on both sides so be sure to remove before embellishing! Using Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive, I adhered my patterned paper at an angle over my letter. Once dry, I was able to trim the excess with an x-acto knife and sanding tool. 


Next, using a favorite floral stamp and Staz On Opaque Ink, I turned my letter over and stamped the back. This allows any stamped images to be hidden by the patterned paper, as well as so the adhesive doesn't alter the Staz On.  


Here is an up close photo of the stamped result!  I love the way the white looks on the acrylic! 

Clear_Scraps_XL_Acrylic_Letter_wreath2I added a ribbon and a fall sprig to my acrylic letter using my hot glue gun to secure. 


For my wreath, I used a large embroidery hoop and two different colors of wired ribbon. I simply looped and tied my ribbon alternating colors until the hoop was full. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope this inspires you to do creating with Clear Scraps! Have a wonderful day!

Additional products used: patterned paper: Jillibean Soup; punch: EK Success; stamp: Stampers Anonymous; ribbon: Snug Hug; bakers twine: The Twinery; misc: embroidery hoop, floral sprig; hot glue gun. 







XL Dazed Layout

Hello, Clear Scraps friends. Today I'm sharing my take on my Fright Night Layout using Clear Scraps XL Dazed Circle, 6" Shattered Glass Mascil, and 2016 Chipboard word title.


I cut out the webbed background using my Silhouette, then layered papers over that.
I added purple Stazon ink to the scallop edges of the acrylic circle.


The 2016 chipboard word title I painted then used the Shattered glass stencil to create a small webbing detail on the chipboard.



Cute, right?


To finish off the layout, I added some metallic viva decor pearls all around the layout. It adds such great texture and dimension, its the perfect finishing touch.

I have a fun treat to share with you next week, and it's not even going to be spooky. :)

October Tag By Angel

Today I bring to you my October Tag! You can get this Acyclic Tag shape over at Clear Scraps!


I used the Graphic 45 SteamPunk to create this months tag. Love Love this collection.


I cut out some of the graphics to add to this tag and used pop dots to give it that off the page look. I also colored in some clear rhinestones black with a copic marker and added a few rhinestones in some areas.


Also to make it have some color pop I added a foliage leaf behind the steampunk image's head.

Happy Holidays!

Layered Tags

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a new tag for October.  

Tag_october_clear scraps_Nancy keslin

One of my favorite things to do is to layer tags.  I began with one of the large chipboard tags from the Chipboard Tag Album.   After covering the tag with an assortment of papers and lace, I simply added a patterned paper tag that I had embellished with a flower and some wooden icons.


This was super quick and easy to create and the layered tags provide lots of interest to what would otherwise be a very simple project.

Thanks for stopping by.



Scallop Square Printer Tray Frame

Hello! Jennifer on the blog today to share one of the new Printer Tray Frames recently released by Clear Scraps!  I am loving the new shapes as they are so fun to work with!  Using the Scallop Square Printer Tray Frame, I created a layout with favorite photos of my children and myself!  Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I wanted to do a "gratitude" type project!  



I used the Together Chipboard Word Title for the title piece of my frame. I colored my chipboard with cream acrylic paint. Once dry, I added clear glitter embossing powder to give it some shine!


One of the many things I love about the Printer Tray Frames is that you can place embellishments on top of the acrylic overlay!  My flowers were a bit too bulky to place underneath so I used my Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive to add it after placing my top chipboard frame.  


I thought it would be fun to add some stamping to one of the sections in the Printer Tray Frame. To do this, I lined up one of the chipboard frames underneath my acrylic.  Using painters tape, I sectioned off the area I wanted to stamp. I  then used a favorite floral stamp with Staz On Ink in White.  


Another favorite technique to use with the Printer Tray Frames is to add sequins or small wood veneer shapes to a section to created a mini shaker.  


For my top upper left section, I stamped a favorite saying and added a cute banner as well as butterflies using hand punches. 


Here, I added another paper flower on the top of my acrylic.  


Thanks for stopping by today!  Check out the large variety of Printer Tray Frames in the Clear Scraps shop! Have a great day!

A "Spooky" clipboard~

Hi, Connie here with a"Spooky" project using the Small Regular Portrait Clipboard by Clear Scraps.  Stencils and chipboard images came in handy when the decorating began but first I needed to give them some character.   

Spooky1_clear scraps-chipboard_c. mercer

The "Spooky" word, the pumpkin and the spider needed some color.  First the pumpkin~

Spooky4_clear scraps_stencil_c.mercer

I used Distress Oxide inks when adding color, to the stencil, to get the shape of the pumpkin.  Water was sprayed, on the pumpkin carefully, to make the pumpkin looked aged and worn.  It was then cut out and stamped over the top, with a chicken wire stamp using black Archival ink and then set aside.

Spooky5_clear scraps_chipboard_c.mercer

The "Spider" chipboard by Clear Scraps was stamped with Versa Mark and then embossed using black embossing powder.  Red rhinestones were added for the eyes.

Spooky3_word chipboard_c.mercer

The "Spooky" word was inked with black Archival ink and then Stickles/Rock Candy was applied randomly to the letters, giving a drippy letter effect.   The pattern paper was adhered to the clipboard and stenciled with different images and shapes.  Layers of paper and die cuts were tucked behind the pumpkin.  The "Spider" was adhered to the top of the pumpkin.  A straw, ribbon and a charm were added to finish the project.
