Love Grows Wild

Happy Thursday Clear Scraps family. Leah here with you today sharing this cute spring home decor sign, and I couldn't resist using this chipboard Vintage LG Truck on the Rectangle Medium Wood Pallet.

Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I had started off painting this truck a bright fire-engine red, but it didn't work with this paper I wanted to use, so I ended up painting it this non-traditional pink, which makes me SO HAPPY. It sings spring to me!


Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I've been with Clear Scraps over 6 years now, so have quite the stash, and included in it are these awesome acrylic flower embellishments.


Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I ended up staining them with Alcohol ink and adding perfect pearls to create texture. I then just layered looooots of flowers behind the truck!


Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I love how bright and happy this home decor piece is. I think it will work as a wreath on the front door or right inside the entry way!
Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I just want to take a minute and Thank Susan and Jim for allowing me to be a part of the Clear Scraps family for so long. I love their products and have believed in them since day one when I started on the Design Team. I will miss making projects and sharing them with you, but will always love and support this company. <3

XOXO

Mixed Media Acrylic Tag

Hi Ya'll,

Tami here today to share a mixed media project with you.

Some of you may be asking, "what exactly is mixed media?". Well, simply put, Mixed Media is any form of art that utilizes more than one medium or material. 

Using multiple materials or products in the same art project helps to create depth and texture.

For this project, I started with the Acrylic Tag Album, which includes 4 different shaped tags. The tags are great to use as a set to make a mini album, but they are also fun to use separately.

I picked one design, the traditional style tag, to use for this project.

One of the reasons acrylic is a good pick as a base for a mixed media project, is that you can work on both sides of the acrylic to layer and help create depth.

Here is the tag that I made...

Clear_scraps_acrylic_tag_wm

I actually started this project by working on what would be the back of the tag; I painted it black. Then I flipped the tag and painted the front blue. What this allows me to do is to scrape away some of the blue paint to reveal the black paint underneath. This is a great technique to use on acrylic.

Take a look at a closeup pic of those 2 layers...

Clear_scraps_acrylic_tag_cu_wm

I was able to create a pattern and add texture to the tag base, and it also adds a bit of depth as the black layer is on the back.

I added another layer to the background of the tag with the Clear Scraps 4 X 6 Brick Wall Stencil and white modeling paste.

For my next layer,  I used some VERY blingy glitter gel pens to color in some designs, then cut them out and adhered them to the tag. Some of the pieces were adhered using pop dots for even more dimension.

A twine bow finishes off the tag.

I took a video of this project while i was working on it. If you'd like to see the steps, please view this video...

    

Supplies:

Clear Scraps: Acrylic Tag Album and 4 X 6 Brick Wall Stencil

The Crafter's Workshop: Blue Jellybean and Black Licorice Heavy Bodied Acrylic Paint and White Modeling Paste, Ranger: Dylusions Colouring Sheets, KingArt: Glitter Gel Pens, Beacon Adhesives: Mixed Media Glue and Pop Dots

Tools: Scissors, Wire Brush, Paint Brushes and Pallet Knife


"You had me at Hello" Acylic Layout

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a layout that I created using the 12x 12 Acrylic Sheets.

I created this in celebration of my upcoming anniversary with my husband.

This is celebrating our 32rd year together, we met in 1988!  Boy does that seem like a very long time!

Enough of that lets get to my project!

Watermarked-20200212_142335 (2)

The products I used in my project are the 12x12 Acrylice Sheet, Circledots Chipboard Embellishment, and

the 4x6 "You had me at Hello" stencil.

CSCEcircledots-2CSCEcircledots-2CSCEcircledots-2

I layered my pattern paper to the acrylic sheet.  My second layer I added some lace to one edge.

I layerd a heart paper doily to the top left corner, which I distress with ink.

I added another layer of pattern paper, and added more lace to the left hand side.

Watermarked-20200212_142343

I used the stencil on the photo mat, putting the hello at the bottom and

"you had me at" to the right hand side going down.

Watermarked-20200212_142347

I used the chipboard embellshment over my photo, which I used distress ink

to darken it up and used some glossy accents to all the dots.

I finished it off with some other embellishments form my stash.

I can put this in an album, since its fairly flat, or hang it on the wall.

Love how it has turned out!

Thanks for stopping!

Kim :)


Sweet Valentine Heart

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a Sweet Valentine Heart.

Heart-banner-clearscraps-4-steph-ackerman

We recently adopted a puppy and thought this would be a fun way to showcase her.

Heart-banner-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman

Using one of the acrylic Banners, I placed it atop a sheet of pattern paper and drew around it.  After removing the plastic film, I adhered the paper to the back of the Banner.

Heart-banner-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman

Next, I cut a sheet of Rinea Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper to fit, then crumpled it before adhering it to the front of the Banner.

Heart-banner-clearscraps-steph-ackerman

A row of flowers was added across the Banner and ribbon was used as a hanger.

Heart-banner-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman

Assorted tags were placed across the Banner.

Heart-banner-clearscraps-5-steph-ackerman

Using one of the new wood heart shapes, I painted it, then cut a photo to fit behind it.  The heart was adhered to the Banner overlapping the tags. To finish, gemstones were added around the Banner.

Thanks for stopping by.

Other Supplies:  Rinea Foiled Paper, Plaid Paint, Petaloo Flowers, Gemstones


Winter Scalloped Square Album

Hello and happy Monday! It's Jennifer on the blog to share a winter themed album using the Scalloped Square Album.  And I'm going to share a couple of techniques I  used! 

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_6x6_Scallop_Album

I  thought the Mittens Chipboard Embellishments would be a cute accent on the chrome book rings! I  attached them by punching holes in the top ends and strung bakers twine through to affix around my ribbon. 

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_6x6_Scallop_Album2

I  first painted my chipboard with chalk paint in off white.  I  then used embossing ink and glitter embossing powder to give them an extra shine. 

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_6x6_Scallop_Album4

I  wanted to add some dimension to my front page as well as allow more of my acrylic to be seen. Using the Snowflake 4x6 Stencil and modeling paste on the right half of my front cover. 

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_6x6_Scallop_Album5

Here is a close up of the end result!  I  added patterned paper and embellishments to the left half of the front cover.  

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_6x6_Scallop_Album6

For each page, I   cut my background page 5.5 x 5.5 inches ensuring each side lines up.  I  matted my photos on white cardstock and added embellishments.

Flashback post from Leah

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Can you believe it's 2020?!!
Leah here with you today to share a flashback post of mine from November 2016, while we gear up for the NEW releases coming up very soon!!

 

Today I am sharing with you how I jazzed up the gorgeous large Deco Portrait Clipboard!
LrgDecoClip_LeahCrowe
I have always struggled with WHAT to do with a clipboard. I am so over-analytical about the purpose of things. Then as I was staring at it, I realized it is just another canvas to hold a piece of art. It doesn't have to do anything except to display something beautiful. THAT is its function! And then the mojo hit, and I decided from now on, I will probably use these to create layouts on.

LrgDecoClip3_LeahCrowe

I used stazon ink and a Christmas stamp of all things to create some interest on the acrylic clipboard. I then added a pattern background to the backside and adhered it in place and cut away the excess paper. From there, I started building my layers on the front of the clipboard.

LrgDecoClip2_LeahCrowe

Once finished, I have my own home decor piece/frame/layout to hang in my home. Like an instant frame! What do you think? How would you use your clipboard from Clear Scraps? There are so many to choose from, check them out!
See you soon!

Clear Scraps Acrylic 12x12 -- Hot Chocolate Weather

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today to share a little

winter love created on a Clear Scraps 12x12 Acrylic Sheet.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic%20Sheet_Hot%20Chocolate%20Weather

The clear acrylic sheets are fun to create with, you can change

the backgrounds, layer, do anything you want and one of my

favorite things is to create a sort of overlay out of it.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic%20Sheet_Hot%20Chocolate%20Weather_close%20up%201

I took this picture on a dark background so it was

easier to see how I brushed the edges of the acrylic

sheet with white acrylic paint to make the edges

look "frosted".  Perfect for a winter LO.  You could

do more, use a stencil, or even stamp if you'd like,

this is one of the reasons the acrylic sheets are so

versatile and fun to create with!  I've also created

LO's using alcohol inks.  It's really only limited

by your imagination.  And to create the base for

your photo, you just start layering up your pretty

patterned papers as you would on any LO you

normally create on paper or cardstock.  Just

use your favorite strong adhesive and layer away.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic%20Sheet_Hot%20Chocolate%20Weather_close%20up%202

Blank chipboard pieces are a great way to create your

own matching embellishments, and can add a lot to

your LO's.  Clear Scraps has so many to choose from

in their store!  Here I used the Coffee Mug Chipboard

Embellishment.  It looks oh so cute sitting next to that

journal box that was a part of the paper collection I

used, and by using a few scraps from that collection,

I was able to create a perfect match!  Simple to just

trace and cut out, then glue to the chipboard.  I like to

ink up the edges to give it a more finished look.  Want

to check out all the different options in the store?

You'll find them all right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stop back soon for more inspiration!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  12x12 Acrylic Sheet,

Coffee Mug Chipboard Embellishment.

Other:  Echo Park Celebrate Winter,

ribbon, twine, Gathered Twigs Distress Ink,

white acrylic paint, enamel dots, adhesive,

red cardstock.


Christmas Ornaments with Mini Shaker Shapes

Hello! Jennifer here to share some easy ornaments I created using two of the Christmas themed Mini Shaker Shapes! I  used the same technique on both Shakers which I  will share with you!

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments

First up is the new Snow Globe Mini Shaker! I  absolutely love this shape as you can create a Christmas or winter themed Shaker. 

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments2

Each Mini Shaker comes with 5 pieces: a chipboard base, three chipboard frames, and an acrylic piece.  Here, I  painted my top chipboard frame and the outside edges of the remaining chipboard with chalk paint in red.  

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments3

Next, using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I  affixed my patterned paper to the top portion of the chipboard base. I  used scissors and a sanding tool to remove any excess paper. 

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments4

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments5

Again using my Beacon Adhesive, I   adhered two of my chipboard frames together and affixed it on top of the base. 

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments6

From my stash, I  placed coordinating sequins in the center of my shaker. I  then applied my adhesive around the edges of the chipboard frame followed by affixing my acrylic.  Lastly, I  adhered the top chipboard frame.

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments8

To accent, I  adhered die cut embellishments to the bottom portion of the shaker.

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments9

I used the Present Mini Shaker to create my second ornament which I  backed with red gingham patterned paper.  

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments10

For this ornament, I  used white chalk paint on the chipboard frames and base. As I  mentioned before, I  used the same technique on this as I did on the first.

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments12

For both ornaments, I  affixed twine to the back to create a hanger as well as added a small swatch of ribbon.  For this particular ornament, I   tied in a metal charm for accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Mini_Shaker_Ornaments13

Thank you for stopping by the blog today!  I  hope this inspires you to create with the Clear Scraps Mini Shakers! Have a great day!

Christmas Sled Candy Box

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here sharing a candy box using the Clear Sled Box.  

Christmas-sled-clearscraps-rinea-steph-ackerman

This is a wonderful sled sized at approximately 5" x 8" x 2".  I chose to use it as a candy box, but think of all the fun things you can use it for.

Christmas-sled-clearscraps-rinea-1-steph-ackerman

Using the sled as a stencil, trace around the sled onto Rinea Foiled Paper and cut out 2 pieces.

Christmas-sled-clearscraps-rinea-2-steph-ackerman

Paint the opposite side of each sled with red paint and use gold medium on the sled runners. 
Assemble the sled using the included adhesive dots for support.

Christmas-sled-clearscraps-rinea-4-steph-ackerman

Place a piece of  Rinea Foiled Paper on the base of the sled.

Christmas-sled-clearscraps-rinea-3-steph-ackerman

Die cut bells and place on both sides of the sled.

Christmas-sled-clearscraps-rinea-6-steph-ackerman

Fill with candy and place amongst your Christmas decorations.

You could also use it as a Christmas present, placing a gift in the base.

Thanks for stopping by.

Clear Scraps Jumbo Wood Tags -- Snowflakes from Heaven Tag

Hi there everybody!  Who's ready for winter?

Laura here with you today, and I am definitely NOT...haha!

But I am ready for some winter crafting time, and that's

where this adorable home decor tag project comes in.

Clear_Scraps_Jumbo%20Wood%20Tag_Snowflakes%20from%20Heaven

How fun is this Rounded Jumbo Wood Tag from

Clear Scraps?  They have a scalloped version too,

you can find that one in the store HERE.

I am in love with these new Jumbo Wood Tags!

They are a blank slate for you to create anything

your heart desires!  So many ideas, so many options!

Clear_Scraps_Jumbo%20Wood%20Tag_Snowflakes%20from%20Heaven_close%20up%202

The Mini Shaker Snowflake from Clear Scraps was a

perfect addition as an embellishment on this tag.

I painted it white, traced the circle on paper to cover

the inside, and glued it all together with the gorgeous

Winter Collection Sequins from Clear Scraps inside.

A little Stickles on the top of the snowflake gives it a

nice shimmer in addition to the sequins.

Now where did those white snowflakes on the

background of the tag come from?

Clear_Scraps_Jumbo%20Wood%20Tag_Snowflakes%20from%20Heaven%20cose%20up%201

After I painted the tag with gray paint and it dried,

I took one of the acrylic snowflake shapes from the

Clear Scraps Mini Snowflake Acrylic Mini Album and

used it as a reverse stencil of sorts, sponging white

acrylic paint around the shape to create the snowflakes.

Best yet, I did not peel off the protective sheet on the

snowflake, so it's good to use for another project, just

peel the coating (and paint) away when I want to use

it later.  I love when a product can do double duty!

Clear_Scraps_Jumbo%20Wood%20Tag_Snowflakes%20from%20Heaven_close%20up%203

To decorate the bottom of the tag, I used scraps of

pretty patterned paper, a few stickers and twine.

It finishes off a super adorable project that will

make a nice addition to my winter home decor!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stop back soon for more inspiration!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  Rounded Jumbo Wood Tag

Creating Acrylic Cards with Chipboard Embellishments

Hello friends and happy December! Christmas time is upon us and if you like to create your own holiday cards, then this post is for you!  Clear Scraps has released many adorable new Chipboard Shape Embellishments that are the perfect size for cards. Today, I'm going to show you three cards I  created along with techniques!

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards

First up, I  used the new Star Bulb Chipboard Embellishments that are one of my new favorites!  I  began with kraft cardstock as my background, then adhered a cut down piece of the 12x12 Acrylic Sheet.

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards2

On my chipboard, I  used red chalk paint and black acrylic paint to color the bulbs and stems of the ornaments.

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards3

I  then used embossing ink and powder to add sparkle to the red portions of the chipboard.

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards4

Using different sizes of circle punches, I  adhered patterns from the collection I  used to the front of the acrylic as well as directly on the kraft background. This is a great way to add dimension and layers to your project! 

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards6

I  stamped my sentiment at the bottom right corner of the kraft to allow it to show through the acrylic.  

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards5

For my second card, I  used the new Candy Canes Chipboard Embellishments. I  used the same technique as in my first card with the acrylic paint, embossing ink, and powder. I  love how the glitter red embossing powder looks on the chipboard! 

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards7

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards8

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards9

For my acrylic piece, I  applied StazOn Opaque using a dauber and the 4x6 Snowflake Stencil.  I  also added ink around the edges of my acrylic to give it a "frosted" look. 

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards10

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards12

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards14

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards13

My last card isn't exactly Christmas per say but I thought the Coffee Mug Chipboard Embellishment would make a cute gift card. I  actually covered the main portion with patterned paper and white cardstock to recreate a certain popular coffee cup! The smaller "java jacket" I  left bare and embellished with a cute buffalo plaid sentiment sticker. 

Clear_Scraps_Christmas_cards15

I  used adhesive dots to affix my gift card to look like it was sticking out of the top of the Coffee Mug.  I  also stamped a sentiment underneath as well as added a chipboard heart.

XL Vintage Christmas Truck

Happy Holidays Clear Scraps family! We're in the home stretch of the year and holiday season. Today I'm sharing this super fabulous XL Vintage Wood Truck that I turned into a Christmas decoration for my home.

Vintage_Truck_LeahCrowe

The most challenging part of this whole creation to me was painting the tires on there. Don't look too closely, painting is not my thing (I do wish it were my thing though!)

The chipboard tall trees were the perfect embellishment on the side of the truck.

Vintage_Truck2_LeahCrowe

The most fun part of creating this was the extra-large Christmas tree in the back of the truck.

Vintage_Truck3_LeahCrowe

I printed out a tree and roughly traced it onto a plain sheet of 12x12 acrylic, then cut it out and adhered pattern paper behind the acrylic. I then embellished it and adhered it to the truck with hot glue. I cut away the excess part of the tree so it wouldn't show near the back tire.

I then added our surname in a cute alphabet and added some floral embellishments and trim.

Vintage_Truck4_LeahCrowe

This looks amazing in our home! It would also make a wonderful gift for your non crafty friends all decorated and done up just right.

Vintage_Truck6_LeahCrowe

See you soon, friends!
