This is Us

Hi there Crafty Friends!

I'm so happy you're here! I have a home decor frame project to share with you. For my project I chose the This is Us Clear Scraps desktop frame. Clear Scraps has several different desktop frames to chose from. Click Here


First off I took some burnt orange acrylic paint and a brush, and painted the surface of my large base and around the sides.  I also painted the photo frame with the same color paint. Let dry. 


Take the smaller base and cover with any scrapbook paper of your choice.  Since I am making this frame as a gift, I  chose to go with a Southwest theme. I'm using Prima Marketing Golden Desert collection. But feel free to decorate yours, however you like. After adhering the paper, take your exacto knife and trim off any excess paper. Then take your distress tool and smooth along all the edges. Make sure you cut the slits on the base so the top frame pieces fit securely in place. 

I repeated the same steps above as I did for the small base, and covered the This is us words with coordinating papers. Trim and distress your edges. You can also paint, ink or stamp onto your frame/words. The possibilities are endless. 


I took some Beacon 3 in 1 glue and adhered the two base pieces together. Make sure you line up your slits on both bases. Next you can adhere a 4x6 photo to the back of your wood frame and adhere your frame onto the main base. Snap your top frame piece in place. 

Now the fun begins with decorating your frame! I chose a cactus flower, crystals, ephermera words, puffy stickers and I tied a moon charm in between the US words, with some twine.



I hope you enjoyed this project today and will make one for yourself or as a gift. These frames come apart so mailing is easy peesy.  Take care and we thank you for stopping by the Clear Scraps blog! Make sure to visit the Clear Scraps website Click Here for all your crafty needs. See you soon! 


Other Supplies used: Prima Marketing Golden Desert paper collection, paper flowers, Beacon 3 in 1 glue, twine, distress tool, exacto knife, acrylic paint. 


Girls Bib Dress Chipboard Album

Hello everyone!  Hope you are doing well this week! It's Jennifer and I am sharing a mini album today for you!  I love that Clear Scraps creates unique (as well as adorable) shaped albums that are perfect for whatever theme you choose!  For my project, I used the Girls Bib Dress Chipboard Album and will show how I assembled my book.


I covered each page with patterned paper applying with my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.  I then removed excess paper using an x-acto knife and healing mat. Using a sanding tool/paper is recommended as well for a smooth finish. For the accent of my cover, I used the Girl Cloud Chipboard Embellishment  Shape.   I first painted my chipboard using white acrylic paint.  I then added glitter embossing powder in pink for the cloud, and white for the stars.   I affixed my pieces to the front of the album again using Beacon Adhesive. 

Clear_Scraps_Girls_Bib_Dress_ Chipboard2

I also painted the edges of each page with white acrylic paint to give some contrast.  


I  found that a 4x4 photo fits best on each page, but you would definitely be able to use a 4x6 inch.  I tend to mat my photos with white cardstock, as well as layer extra prints underneath. 



For this page, I used one of the Clothes Hanger Chipboard Embellishments to accent the bottom of my photo.  I used a chalk paint in light blue to color the chipboard. 


Again, I affixed my chipboard using the Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.  Any solvent based adhesive is recommended.

Birthday Cake Shaker Card

Hello friends! Maya here with you today on the blog to share a shaker card featuring the Mini Shaker Birthday Cake and Sprinkles Heart Confetti. I am a big fan of all the shakers from Clear Scraps and I absolutely love to create shaker cards with them!


▼ The card size is 6.5 x 5 inches. I started by using a white card stock and covering with a 4.5 x 6 inches patterned paper. On the bottom of the card, I layered two strips of patterned paper and applied border punch on one strip.


▼ For the birthday cake shaker, I covered the chip back layer with three colors of patterned papers. I also added the rainbow sticker to the bottom two layers of the cake. Next, I adhered two layers of chip foams to the cake, placed the confetti, glued the layer of acrylic divider. Using the watermark ink, embossing powder and heat gun, I gave the top chip foam a coat of white embossing powder. 


▼ I also chose some ephemera and chipboard accents to decorate around the card. After I finished the shaker cake, it's time to put them together! I used tacky glue to adhere all the pieces. Last, I added some enamel dots for extra touches to finish this birthday card.


Thank you for visiting the blog today! I hope you are inspired to create some shaker cards with the cute shakers from Clear Scraps. Let's get crafty and have fun!

Clear Scraps Camera Mini Shaker -- Roadtrip Snapshots LO

Hi all!!  Laura is here to share some inspiration with you today!  Love creating LO's using

the Clear Scraps Mini Shakers!  There's something for everyone in the store and what's

better for scrapping road trip photos than the Camera Mini Shaker?!!

Clear Scraps Camera Mini Shaker -- Road Trip Snapshot LO(2)

This is a LO with a couple of pictures from an impromptu road trip to see the American

Pickers, and we stumbled onto a filming day!  The camera shaker is such a cute

addition to this LO isn't it?  These shakers are easy to use too.  Just trace the shape

onto a patterned paper (or paint it, ink, it, whatever you'd like to do).  I used paper,

glued it on, then you glue down the frame pieces one by one.  There are 2 plain cardboard

frames you glue onto the paper layer, then add your sequins or whatever filler you'd like,

then glue down the acrylic layer (make sure you take off the protective coating on both

sides!!) and then lastly, glue down the top frame piece.  I painted the frame piece with

black acrylic paint for this particular project, but again, you can use whatever you'd like,

you can even add some sparkle with glitter glue, or metallic rubbing paste.


This camera is one of many of the Mini Shakers in the Clear Scraps store.

You can find them all on the website right HERE.

The words "road trip" that are attached to the camera shaker are also

an embellishment available from Clear Scraps.  Another item with so

many choices for all of your projects!  You can find them all HERE.

Clear Scraps Camera Mini Shaker -- Road Trip Snapshot close up 1(1)

I wanted to give it the distressed "vibe" since we were looking at antiques and such, so

the words were painted black, and then I went back over with aqua paint, dabbing it

on with a sponge to create that grungy look.  When it was dry, I glued it to the camera.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Stop back soon for more inspiration!


Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps: Camera Mini Shaker, Road Trip chipboard word title.

Other:  Vicki Boutin Storyteller paper and embellishments,

black and aqua acrylic paint, sequins, adhesive.

Vintage Floral album

Hello Crafty Friends!

I'm Dana and I have a vintage floral garden album project to share with you!  Have you checked out all the newest Slimline albums from Clear Scraps? For my project today, I'll be using the Clear Scraps Slimline Chip Tab album. Click Here


To decorate this album, I'm using Simple stories Vintage Garden District collection. I color palette is so pretty and has a vintage look.

First off, I like to cover all my base pages with coordinating papers. Then I go back and decorate the cover and all inside pages. This album size is 5 & 1/2 x 11 inch. So you cut all base pages the same size. I like to use a strong permanent glue, like Beacon 3 and 1. Be sure to punch all your holes before adhering your papers down. I used a variety of stickers to cover all the tabs of my album. 

Now we'll start decorating the front cover of our album. I chose one of the chipboard  frames and one journaling card and glued it behind the back of my frame. Using foam tape I adhered my frame to the lower bottom of my cover. I fussy cut one of the butterflies and adhered it over the butterfly on my journaling card. This gives it a nice 3 D effect. I glued a chipboard buterfly and some tiny hearts onto my frame, along with acouple sticker sentiments. I like to add a bit of glitter to the butterfly wings! 


For the inside back cover, I made a pocket measuring 5x5 inches. Glued some trim on the top edge of my pocket. Added a sticker at the top and tucked a few journaling cards inside my pocket. The opposite page I cut a piece of cream cardstock at 4x4 to mat my photo.  Fussy cut a few floral images, inked the edges and added foam dots to the back. I glued them around the bottom left side of my photo. Added a sticker sentiment on the top area of my photo and adhered a heart sticker with foam dots on the right bottom corner of my photo.


For my next two pages:  on the left page I waterfalled some of the smaller journaling cards. I scored 1/2 inch at the top of each card and adhered with adhesive tape, towards the top of my page. I added foam dots to the back of my small sticker frame, and adhered toward the bottom. Then added a sentiment sticker inside my frame. The right page,  I cut a journaling card to measure 5x4 inches, scored 1/2 inch on the left side. Adhered to the bottom of my page with adhesive tape to make a flip page. 


Next two pages: left side I made another 5x 4 &1/2 pocket. Added a punched border trim at the top of my pocket. Glued a flower on the left side of my pocket. Tucked a few journaling cards inside my pocket. and a chipboard sentiment sticker to the top of my page. For the page on the right, I matted another photo at the top. Added a sticker sentiment and metal brad to the bottom of my photo.


For my last two pages, I made a diagonal pocket on the left side.  Added a empherma floral piece adhered with foam dots, to my pocket and some glitter on the butterfly wings. Adhered a stamp sticker at the top of my page. Tucked a few journaling cards inside my pocket. The page on the right, I added a sticker frame with pop dots towards the top of my page and a sticker sentiment inside the frame. I took two smaller cards and scored 1/2 inch on the left and adhered as flip pages at the bottom.


To finish my album, I attached the pages together with 3 metal rings, tied some tulle and ribbon onto the rings. 



I hope you have enjoyed this project and you will want to make one for your very own. Thanks for stopping by the Clear Scraps blog! Be sure to check out the Clear Scraps website to see all the newest albums available Click Here

See you soon! Have a great week and happy crafting!

Palm Trees Wood Album

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here to share a new album using the Palm Trees Wood Album.


I know that 2020 was a crazy year and we really couldn't do a lot of things we usually do, but we are hoping that 2021 end up being a much better year.  I created this album to document all the good things that will occur this year.


I love the wood grain on these panels so I decided to use Lindy's spray inks to add color to the panels.  The colors allow the wood grain to show.  I chose 2 colors for the front cover.


For the back cover and the interior panels, I selected one color.


I added some additional color along the bottom of the album to give it a sandy effect.


Using the Life is Good chipboard word title, I also sprayed it with color.


Using a script stamp with VersaFine Clair Morning Mist Ink, I randomly stamped it about the front cover.  I only wanted a hint of the words to give the cover some dimension.


I cut white cardstock to fit the album, punched holes and added the rings. 
Now my album is ready to documents the good things that will happen this year.


Thanks for stopping by.

Heartbeat Mini Shaker Layout

Hello and happy Friday! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a layout I   created using one of the brand new Mini Shakers!  It's no doubt 2020 was a year to remember!  I  wanted to document about going back to work as a dental hygienist and thought the Heartbeat Mini Shaker would be a perfect accent!  I  began with laying out 3.75 to 4.25 inch squares to create a grid (one of my favorites to use for layouts).  I  did use my sewing machine to stitch around the inside edges of each square. 


To assemble my shaker, I  adhered patterned paper to the front of the chipboard base using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. I    cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife to trim around the chipboard.  Next, I     smoothed rough edges using my sanding tool.


I    then adhered my two middle chipboard frames together and adhered to the base (again using my Beacon adhesive).


I    de-staticed the area using an embossing bag before adding my colored sequins shapes.  Next, I  adhered my acrylic piece over the top. 


Using a chalk paint in mint green, I    painted the top chipboard frame before adhering. Usually I  would also paint the inside edges of the middle chipboard frames but I  forgot! I     realized I    missed this step after I  had my shaker together! 


Here is the end result of the shaker! I  adhered it to my page again using the Beacon 3-in-1 as well as added a sentiment over the bottom half. 


I  decorated each of my squares using die cuts and chipboard from the collection I  used.  




Thanks for stopping by the blog! You can see all of the Mini Shakers by clicking HERE! Have a great day!

Creating a Stenciled Art Journaling Page


One of my goals this year was to create projects for an art journal.  This project features two Clear Scraps Stencils and Clear Scraps Chipboard. 
Creating the Background
Using the Clear Scraps 4x6 Brick Wall stencil, apply gold ink along edges of black card stock. 

Move stencil down and around page to create a full border. 


Add stenciled bricks to top and bottom of your background. 


Secure  the Clear Scraps 6  inch Diamond Heart Stencil to a piece of Bristol Board paper ( you could also use mixed media papers) . 

Apply distress inks through stencil.


Cut apart a crown from the Clear Scraps Crowns Chipboard. 

Coat Clear Scraps Crowns Chipboard with embossing ink and add gold embossing powder and heat emboss. 


Stamp a focal point stamp over your stenciled heart. I of course chose an Alice in Wonderland themed stamp. 

Border punch top of your page and add matted sticker sentiment. Mat onto red card stock and then onto your stenciled background.  Adhere crown. 




I hope you are inspired to try creating your own art journal page. 




Stencil a Faux Ceramic Tile


Tami here on the Clear Scraps' Blog today with a bonus project to share with you!

This month my projects each featured a simple new or different way to use Clear Scraps' products. 

I kept the base supplies the same, so it would be easy to experiment with the ideas and techniques.

Today, I'll show you how to make a faux ceramic tile using a stencil and chipboard.

Ceramic Tiles come in many different styles, patterns and colors, but they can be expensive, and are too heavy for use on some projects.

Using chipboard for the "tile" will give you a similar look, but allow you to use the tile on projects that traditional ceramic tiles would be unsuitable for.

Here is the tile I made...


I used it to embellish a plain gray planter in my living room...

Clear_scraps_dry_emboss_technique_faux_tile_tamisanders_planter - Copy
Making the tile was easy, and started with a piece of white chipboard and Clear Scraps' Fan Scroll Stencil...

Tape stencil to chipboard and then use embossing tool to add design...


Use your finger (best tool for this job) to lightly rub gel medium into design. Work QUICKLY! as it dries fast!


After gel medium has been applied, quickly, but carefully, remove stencil.

Apply base color of ink to chipboard. Dont press hard over embossed area, let applicator glide across it...


Apply touches of accent colors...


Spritz lighlty with water to activate inks; let dry...


Closeup of detail...


Cut tile to desired size and its ready to be incorporated into your project...


You could also make smaller tiles, or cut a larger one into smaller pieces, to embellish the edges of a frame or mirror.

I hope you enjoyed this project and will come back soon for more Great projects from the other Fabulous Clear Scraps' Designers!

Clear Scraps Mason Jar Wood Shape -- Create Beautiful

Hello everyone!!  Laura here with you today to share a little springtime inspiration!

This sweet little home decor project starts with the Clear Wood Mason Jar Shape.

Clear Scraps Mason Jar Wood Shape Create Beautiful(1)

Oh am I in love with these 3 packs of wood shapes!  There are several in the Clear Scraps

store.  These are great to make multiples so you can give them as gifts (imagine all of

your crafty friends getting this cute little mason jar gift!), OR yes, you can keep them all

for yourself and create projects for different rooms, different holiday, whatever you'd like!

For this project, I started by tracing the jar onto patterned paper.  Then I painted the jar lid

with gray acrylic paint.  While it dried, I cut out the traced jar, and  then glued it on.  Next I

layered on the black cardstock and contrasting plaid, then I inked the entire jar (including

the lid) with black distress ink.  Then it was time to embellish!

This is the Fancy Butterfly chipboard embellishment from Clear Scraps.  It was painted

using aqua and terracotta acrylic paint (dabbed on to make a mottled look) and then to

make it look a little like a copper verdigris I used a bit of copper rubbing paste to gild it.

I also used the Vine Circle chipboard embellishment, painted with black acrylic paint.

Once everything was dry, it was layered together in the center of the jar.

The butterfly was popped up with some foam tape, and then a few flower

and heart stickers were added along with the word "create".  Twine tied

around the top of the jar finished the project off.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you're inspired to try out

the Clear Scraps Wood Shapes!  You can find the jars and many more in

the store right HERE.

Enjoy the Journey Wood Panel

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here to share a new home decor panel.

Are you aware that Clear Scraps creates wood rectangles and sells them in packs of three -  3 Wood Rectangles.
At 6.5" x 9.5", they are perfectly sized for albums and home decor pieces.


Taking apart the dragonflies from their frame, I placed them atop white cardstock and spritzed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Shimmer Spray Inks. 
I put aside the paper and dragonflies till they dried.
The background I created was used on a previous project.


I re-spritzed the dragonflies and then embossed them with embossing powder.
Lovin' the shimmer on them!


Color one of the Wood Rectangles with a Blue Shimmer Spray. 
It's not a heavy spray and I love that the wood grain still shows. 
It gives the panel a really unique appearance. 
Punch holes in the corners.


Spritz Enjoy the Journal with a Pink Shimmer Spray.


Adhere the phrase onto the panel, then place the dragonflies around it.


Run ribbon through the holes and tie off.


Now I have a pretty new panel to hang in my craft room.

Other Supplies:  Lindy's Stamp Gang Shimmer Spray

Leaving the Clear Scraps 6 inch Turtle Stencil  in place, ink turtle with embossing ink. 
Add clear embossing powder and heat emboss. this will protect your turtle from "water" damage in later steps. 


Using distress inks, ink your ocean.

Happiness Blooms from Within

Hello Crafty Friends!

You know how much I love creating Home Decor projects. Well I have a project perfect to welcome spring! I've chose Clear Scraps new flower shaker Click Here and the Wood Deco 3 pack Click Here


First off we'll begin by decorating our wood deco base. I'm using Carta Bella Spring Market collection, but any spring themed papers will work. I chose a wood grain paper background.  Trace around the wood shape with your pencil and cut out with your scissors. Take Beacon 3 in 1 glue and adhere your paper to your wood base. Take an xacto knife and trim any excess paper. Using a distress tool, rub off any excess paper till smooth. Then rub distress ink all along the edges.


Next chose the any embellishments you'd like to use to create your design. I chose some stickers, ephermera pieces and fuzzy cut out the flower pots, and truck. I added distress ink along the edges of my ephermera and fuzzy cut images. The pink awning sticker I adhered to the top of my piece using foam dots. The Happiness Blooms sticker I adhered to the middle bottom area of my wood base.

Set your wood piece aside for now. We will start making our shaker flower. Take apart your shaker pieces. For the bottom base,  I chose a coordinating floral paper. Traced around the edge with my pencil. Cut it out. Glue your patterned paper to your bottom shaker base. Trim excess paper off with your exacto knife. Distress edges till smooth. Take your top shaker piece and add acrylic paints to match your design. You aren't limited to just using paints to decorate your shaker. You can use, glitter, inks whatever you prefer. I also painted the sides of my shaker pieces with green paint.


After your paint dries, take your glue and adhere your first two shaker pieces. Next you can add some colored seed beads to each section of your flower shaker. Take your acrylic flower shape and peel off the protective film off both sides before adhering to the top of your previous layer. Then carefully add your top shaker piece. Don't move your shaker until it's throughly dried or else your beads may stick to the sides. 


Now take your wood piece and glue your flower shaker to the left side of your piece.


I added a sentiment "Hello Spring" on the right side with foam dots. I added foam dots to the back of my fuzzy cut images as well as the truck. The leafy sticker I adhered below my hello spring sentiment. I scattered a few crystal gems onto my design. To finish my project, I hot glued a ribbon to the back of my wood piece. Now it's ready to display!




I hope you enjoyed my project today and it will inspire you to start creating one for your home. Thank you for visiting the Clear Scraps blog. We love to see your projects. So please share them on our Facebook page! Check out the Clear Scraps website to see all the newest products. Click Here

Baby 6x6 Chipboard Tabbed Album

Hello crafty friends! It's Maya here on the blog today to share a baby album I created using the Chipboard 6x6 Tabbed Album. I documented these photos of my two adorable nieces. The three tabbed dividers are so perfect to separate their individual photos and sister photos.


For the front and back cover, I traced them to a patterned paper, cut out and adhered with tacky glue. Next, I decorated the covers by using patterned papers, stickers and ephemera.

▼ For the inside covers, I cut two 4 x 6 journaling cards and adhered it to the center. Then, cut two patterned strips for the top and the bottom. I also used a ribbon border punch to create white dotted ribbon strips and adhered them between the papers.



▼ For the inside pages, I painted the outer edges using pink acrylic paint and planned to cover with patterned papers.


▼ Then I trimmed the patterned papers to 5.25 x 5.75 to fit inside the chipboard. For this page of the first divider, I created two pockets to hold four 2 x 2.75 photos from one of my nieces. I backed the photos with pink paper and I documented the date and some details on the back. 


▼ Here I documented the photos from my other niece on the second divider. I created a vertical pocket to hold the photos.


▼ The third divider is holding their sister photos! Again, I created pockets and adhered them to the bottom of the pages to hold tags or extra photos. 



Thank you for stopping by Clear Scraps blog today! I hope you are inspired to create an album of your own. You may check HERE for all the chipboard albums. Let's get crafty!

Flower DIY Wood Shape Mini Album

Hi friends!  It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a spring time project with you!  I love the colors of this time of year and even more creating projects that incorporate spring themes!  For today's post, I used the Flower DIY Wood Shapes to create a mini album and am going to share the techniques I used! 


All of the DIY Wood Shapes come in a pack of three so you can use one solo shape or do as I  did, and create a mini album or even a banner! I painted the edges of both sides with chalk paint in patina; a nice blue spring color!  I love using chalk paint with the birch wood because it dries quickly as well as gives it a classy look. 


Next, using my Silhouette I  cut 6 inch circles out of patterned paper to fit the pages of my book.  I applied each background piece using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive as it dries fast and you won't have to worry about paper or wood warping in the future.  I then secured the 4x6 Butterfly Flock Stencil to the front with washi tape then blended in different Distress Inks over the top. 


Here is a close up of the end result!  I  love the way it turned out!  


For the remainder of my pages, I  added a 6 inch patterned paper circle with a 4x4 space for a future photo. 





For this page, I used the 4x6 Quaterfoil Stencil with my Distress Oxide inks over my patterned paper.
