Candy Shop Layout

Happy Day, Clear Scraps friends! I'm here today sharing this sweet layout featuring several Clear Scraps items.


I built this layout around the Acrylic 12x12 sheet. I used my silhouette to frame the layouts shape and also using it to help create part of the title.


The SHOP part of the title is the Acrylic Alphabet & Numbers set. I removed the protective film from the backside and adhered them to pattern paper, cutting the excess away. They are less than 2" in size, so are perfect for creating fun titles on layout & mini albums.


Another great accent to any layout is the chipboard embellishments from Clear Scraps. Featured on this layout are the fun Multi Stars.


I absolutely love how this layout came together. It reminds me of the joy my son experienced spending his gift card in the Candy Shop. :)


Have a great weekend!!

Lighthouse Memories

Hey everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a mini album I made using the Lighthouse Wood Accordion Shaker Album.  I just love lighthouses and there is one not too far that we have visited a few times (now to find the photos so I can add them...or maybe take some new?  hmmm

This album came together very quickly.  I simply painted the cover of the mini with white gesso and then some blue and white acrylic paints.  I then filled some of the sections with seed beads. Finally adding some flowers and couple of stickers to complete the cover.

I covered the inside pages with patterned papers,

stickers, and more flowers, being sure to leave many spots to hold my photos.

Hope you like this mini.

Clear Scraps Love Send It Clear Card by Pinky Hobbs - 1

For the card I took the front flap and used paint mixed with modeling paste to stencil the word LOVE on, using the 6" Imagine Stencil.


And of course I glittered the bottom flap!

I used some tropical papers on the inside and I know you are wondering where in the world do I write in this card? Well I created a writing space on the back!

Everyday Moments Air Balloon Layout by Pinky

Happy May everyone, it is Pinky today and I am here today to share this fun  Air Balloon 12X12 Acrylic Layout that I created using Clear Scraps of course! These layouts are so fun to put together!

Clear Scraps Moments Layout by Pinky Hobbs - 4

For this one I took the Air Balloon 12X12 Acrylic Layout and removed the protective film from the back then I started painting!

I blended colors with a foam brush and kept on dabbing, I love the color scheme!

I set it aside to dry for quite a good minute, then removed the protective film from the front.

For the background I wanted to use white so the layout would pop, but I traced the frames onto patterned paper and cut them out, and adhered the into the frames as matting. 

I did seal the back of the paint with a clear spray paint sealer so the adhesive wouldn't show through.

After that  added the photos, and a few of the embellishments I found and loved.

Then I added the MOMENTS Title to the balloon.

Happy Crafting my friends!

Fan-Shells Tag~

Hi, Connie here with a chipboard sea shell tag using the new Fan-Shells chipboard embellishments by Clear Scraps.  The chipboard pieces can be inked, painted and embossed, to add color to the chipboard.  These are embossed.

Clear Scraps_tag1_sea shell_c.mercer

The tag is a chipboard tag by Clear Scraps and covered with pattern paper.   The sea shells were inked with Distress Oxide and embossed with clear gloss embossing powder.  Very easy and the look, the embossing technique gives the shells, makes them appear to have been plucked off the beach.  Love the look!!!  

Clear Scraps_tag2_sea shell_c.mercer

The Distress Oxide inks give the chipboard a light and dark effect, once the chipboard is embossed.  Twine was added and then a couple of real sea shells to the center of the bow.  Text stickers were added also.  Tags are great for gift bags or to tie around a treat.  These are from the new release in January!

Supplies used:

Clear Scraps: chipboard tag and chipboard Fan-shells embellishment


other: pattern paper, stickers, twine and small sea shells

Thanks for stopping by~

Game On Layout

Hello! Jennifer on the blog today to share a layout I  created using the Game On Chipboard Word Title!  This is just one of the many options of phrases words Clear Scraps has to offer! You will always find the perfect title for your next project! "Game On" can definitely be used for any sports related page but since my kiddos aren't very sports inclined I  wanted to use it for an arcade games layout!  Being a child of the 80's, my brother and I  grew up in the arcade so my Ms. Pac Man skills are pretty impressive LOL


I  did a grid style layout to fit in multiple photos as well as many patterned papers.  I  allowed my Game On Chipboard Word Title to be the focal point of the page with its contrasting color as well as vertical placement.  


I  colored my chipboard with Color Shift acrylic paint in black from Plaid.  It gave the chipboard a metallic grainy look that ties in with the theme of my page! 


Here is a close up shot of the paint!  


Sharing some additional shots of my page! I  cut my patterned papers into different sized squares and rectangles to fit the place on the page. I  then used my sewing machine to stitch around the borders before adding embellishments.



Thank you for stopping by today!  Please check out the selection of Chipboard Word Titles by going HERE

Have a great day!

Wood Cupcake card

Hey, Clear Scraps family!
Leah here with you today to share these super cool brand new Birch Wood Cards.

Today I'm sharing the Wood Cupcake Card.Woodcupcake_LeahCrowe

I started off by using some pattern paper and placing it on the backside of the cupcake cut out.


Now you can take paint, or in this case, Distress Oxide to apply color to the wood. On the backside, I just applied the Oxide all around the edges of the card, as I will be applying pattern paper to cover up those two squares shown above.


Ahh, just look at that wood grain!
While that dries, we'll add color to the rest of the wood panels. 
I started off by just rubbing the oxide along the edges of the wood panel.  Once I applied a fair amount of ink, I then took a wet baby wipe to help move the color around to towards the center of the card. 


This allowed it to blend without covering up the wood grain I wanted to show through.
Once that dried, I went around the edge of the panel to add more depth of color.

Next, we'll add some pattern paper to the inside card panels. I also placed a large flower die-cut and only glued down the bottom left corner so a gift card or note would easily slip right in there for gift giving.


I used twine to attach the two card panels together. I cut two strips about 4" each then folded them in half. Using a Tim Holtz Tiny attacher, it staples perfectly without going all the way through the wood.


Once you have both attached to the front, sit the top panel onto the bottom panel, hold the card in place and flip it over, as shown in the last photo above, you will want to have enough room for the card to close and then staple the twine to secure it. I used two staples on the back.

There you have it. Embellish til your heart's content.
