Scallop Layout using the July 2018 Kit

Hey friends, Leah here today to share another layout from the awesome July 2018 kit!


This layout came together so quickly, the longest part of this creation was waiting for the black paint pearls from my stash to dry on the acrylic.


These are Spring photos of my son from this past school year. I loved the plaid print in the kit and how it matched this fun photo, so I used the Echo Park Summer Picnic pattern paper for the background. I then used a bit of the Bo bunny Summer Mood pattern paper as well.


I used the Echo Park Border strips to create a title area beneath the photo above, and also added in some of the Green Eyelet embellishments around the layout since it matched the year and ivy in the photo.

Fast, fun, and cute! Check out the July 2018 kit!

GameOn with Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the chipboard shapes and titles by Clear Scraps.   I love adding these chipboard embellishments to my pages.  They are easy to add color to and they happen to look fabulous plain!

The pictures were trimmed down, so they would fit across the page, and then matted on white cardstock.

Paper borders were added to enhance the photos.

The chipboard pieces were embossed using Distress Oxide ink and embossed with clear coat embossing powder.  They were both done at the same time and they both came out differently.  The "GameOn" title came out a mat texture and the film strip is shiny.   Could be the difference in the chipboard, no sure, doesn't really matter~ both look great!!!

I love clustering the chipboard shapes with other textures and embellishments.  I used stamps and stickers to create the cluster.  The small photos were trimmed out of a large photo to fit inside the chipboard film strip.  I love how it looks.  All of the photos, in the film strip, were from one 4"x6" photo. Kinda cool!!!

Journey Planner with July Creating Made Easy Kit

Hello!  This month Clear Scraps has debuted a new Creating Made Easy Kit along with sneaks of new products! I'm happy to share my first project I created using July's kit!  As you know, Clear Scraps released wood products this past January and I'm so excited to see additional designs from Susan coming this month!  The new Journey Wood Album is what I'm featuring for today's post!  Along with the planner pages included in the kit, I  made a fun summer themed planner! 


I  started off by painting my Wood Album with white chalk paint; usually two coats is enough for good coverage.  I  then used the 6x6 Bo Bunny Summer Mood paper pad to cover the front of my planner.  I  trimmed excess paper with my scissors as well as used a sanding tool to smooth any rough edges.   


Since the planner pages are a little big for the Wood Album, I  went ahead and trimmed them down to fit. I  felt like this didn't take anything away from the pages itself since they are uniform. My advice is to decide where you are going to make your cuts and stick with the same throughout your book.  I  used an extra large date stamp at the bottom of each page for my dates, but you can use whatever you have in your stash or use your own handwriting!  


The planner kit includes stickers to adorn your page, which I  used to coincide with events/appointments.  There are also two pocket pages which I  again trimmed to fit the Wood Album.  These are perfect to fit your extra planner accessories such as these adorable stick-on notes!


I  left my planner slightly bare so I  can go back and add additional embellishments or even photos!  I  love the idea of a memory planner but haven't quite gotten to the point of where I  can add it on to my schedule! Thank you for stopping by and please click HERE for more information on this month's kit!   I've also included a PDF for you to print out for step by step instructions on how I  put together my project!
