Clear Scraps XL Script Wood Quote--Our Happy Place LO

Hello everybody!  You've got Laura here with you today sharing a LO

using one of the awesome new Clear Scraps XL Script Wood Quotes!

Clear_Scraps_Our Happy Place XL Word Quote_ LO

This one starts with a 12x12 acrylic sheet as the base of the LO.

I added a border strip and then a few journal cards around the outside

edges of the LO to make a fun border.  Then matted my picture and

added that to the top.  This made a great frame for the XL Wood Quote.

Our Happy Place fits so many great occasions!  For me, it always means

our yearly North Carolina beach vacation, so it was the perfect fit!

I painted it with blue acrylic paint, and then sponged on some gray for a

little bit of a distressed look.  Here is a close up pic of where I started to

sponge the gray onto the right side of the word quote:

Clear_Scraps_Our Happy Place XL Word Quote_Ahoy There_close up 2(1)

It gives it a little bit of a beachy feel don't you think?  It also

adds a little more texture to the word quote when you add

a second color to create a sort of highlight.

Same idea that I used for the Clear Scraps Helm and Anchor

chipboard embellishment.

Clear_Scraps_Our Happy Place XL Wood Quote_Ahoy There_close up 1(1)

It's painted with red acrylic paint, and then I brushed the edges

of it with black distress ink using a sponge tool, to really make

the embellishment stand out on the page.  As always, Clear Scraps

gives you so many options when it comes to their embellishments!

You can find all the different chipboard choices HERE in the store,

and you can ink, spray, stamp, paint, and so on to your heart's content!

It looks picture perfect when all the embellishments come together,

with a few stickers, and the family picture at the beach!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

goodies that Clear Scraps carries!

Color Changing Vacation Tote

Color Changing Vacation Tote by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Hi there!  It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a quick tutorial to make this fun color-changing tote bag that's perfect for summer travel using one of the border stencils and a clear word title from Clear Scraps.

Color Changing Vacation Tote by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Stenciling

Start by securing the Hibiscus Border Stencil to a medium tote bag using tape or stencil spray adhesive.  Insert a piece of cardboard into the bag (to prevent leakage to the other side) and apply different colors of fabric ink through the stencil using a brush or foam applicator.  Here I'm using two colors of UV sensitive fabric ink because I thought it would be a fun touch for beach trips!

Color Changing Vacation Tote by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Inking

While the fabric ink dries, peel the protective plastic off of both sides of the Vacation Small Clear Word Title and lay it down on a protective surface like a craft sheet.  Randomly drip bright colors of alcohol inks over the acrylic word to create a tie-dyed appearance.

Color Changing Vacation Tote by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Before Sun

Punch a hole through the brightly colored word using a heavy duty hole punch and string the embellishment around the handle of the tote bag with natural twine.  (This picture also shows what the stenciled border looks like just as it starts to darken in the sunlight.)

Color Changing Vacation Tote by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Detail

When the light hits the design on the bag it begins to turn a fun pink and yellow, but I love the mixing of the coral and pink flowers when part of the design is out of direct light too.  I can't wait to take this little tote to the beach with me...it's the perfect size for a small towel, phone, and flipflops!

I hope you enjoyed this fun tote project and thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have you tried using any of the border stencils on fabric projects yet?

Additional products used: medium white tote bag, pink and yellow UV sensitive fabric ink, painters tape, alcohol inks, craft sheet, hole puncher, natural twine


Clear Scraps Acrylic Pennant -- Make Today Rock

Hi everyone!  Laura here to share a bright, colorful project

to give as a gift as inspiration for a friend, or just keep as

a reminder for yourself to "Make Today Rock"!!

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Pennant_Make Today Rock

This project started with the Clear Scraps 5 piece banner set.

Yes, you get 5 of these awesome acrylic banners, and I only

used one for this project!  Think of all the possibilities there!

You can use it for one or two banner projects, or make five

individual gifts like this one!

The plaid looking background on the banner piece was created

using the Clear Scraps 4x6 Plaid Stencil and some green paint.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Pennant_Make Today Rock close up 1

Then to finish of the acrylic piece I added some paper pieces

I traced using the banner to fit, inked the edges, then glued

down.  I also used some bright, colorful chipboard stickers

and enamel dots to add more fun color and interest.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Pennant_Make Today Rock close up 3

This top piece is one of the Clear Scraps Wood Cards.  They

can come with holes pre-punched, but they also have sets

that are fun to play with too.  You can make greeting cards,

or special thank you gifts.  With this one, I have the cupcake

set, and I decided to use just the blank wooden card in the

set to create this project, because I was going to cover it up 

with pretty paper anyway.  After I glued on the paper, I used

a crop-a-dile, and punched the holes in it so I could add the

acrylic pennant piece to the bottom of the home decor wall

hanging.  More of the striped patterned paper, chipboard

sticker and enamel dots added the finishing touches to this one!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are inspired to mix and

match all of the different products that Clear Scraps has to offer!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  5 piece banner set, 4x6 Plaid Stencil, Cupcake Wood Card

Other: adhesive, twine, enamel dots, chipboard stickers, patterned paper

Clear Scraps Acrylic Tag Album -- Ahoy There!

Hello everyone!  Laura here today to share a summer mini album!

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Tag_Ahoy There front

The Clear Scraps Acrylic Tag Album is a fun way to play with acrylic

and not feel overwhelmed by the large 12x12 surface of the acrylic

sheets.  If you haven't tried it, this is a great way to get started!

On this first page, the rays were stenciled with blue acrylic paint,

and the Clear Scraps 6" Spiral stencil.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Tag_Ahoy There close up 2

So simple, but it gives a great impact and texture!  Next,

I brushed the edges of the next 2 pages with more acrylic paint.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Tag_Ahoy There close up 1

It's  nice way to frame each page instead of just leaving it clear,

tho you can do that too.....nice to mix it up!

Love how the back of the stenciled cover shows through to

the second page of the mini album.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Tag_Ahoy There page 2

The best part of using acrylic.....it's a two for one impact!

You can see how the brushed on red paint frames this page:

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Tag_Ahoy There page 3

And it shows through to frame the next one too.  It's also

fun to add some cute little tags in between the pages, they

can be used as a title, or you could use it to mark the year

or use it as a journal box too.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Tag_Ahoy There page 4

Some people are afraid to work with a acrylic because of the

fact it shows through, but it's actually a fun element to use

to embrace your creativity!  And you can keep it simple.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Tag_Ahoy There close up 3

This is just the mat from the other page becoming the mat for the

next page.  Just keep your adhesive where it won't be seen.

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic Tag_Ahoy There back cover

The border strip was used as a mat for a thinner border on the

other page.  Just take a look as you are putting the album together.

It's so fun to get creative with the different acrylic pieces, and once

you've tried it, you'll be hooked!

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

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  Acrylic Tag Album, 6" Spiral Stencil

You & Me ~ Wood Quote!!

Hi, Connie here with a special project using many Clear Scraps products!!  The Clear Scraps products go together so well and make super cute home decor pieces.  My project and inspiration is a photo board, that photos can be changed out and displayed in my home (or yours)!

Pallet board_clear scraps_quote1_c.mercer
Instructions:
1. Cover the pallet board with pattern paper.  I used Beacon's 527 to adhere the paper to the board. The paper strips are 2" and then the ends are sanded off.
2. The mini acrylic clipboard is covered with pattern paper and then decorated with coordinating stickers from the paper set.
3. To achieve the film strip look I used a stamp to create the border on each side of the black and white photo.  I will list all products at the end of the post.

Pallet board_clear scraps_quote2_c.mercer
4. The wood quote (You & Me) is painted with acrylic paint and then the edges are sanded, for a distressed look.
5. Pattern paper was added to the back of the heart in the quotes piece. 
6. Adhere the quotes piece to the pallet board.  I used Beacon's 527 glue.
7. Add stickers and decorations to complete the look.

Acrylic Stars layout

Hi Clear Scraps family! This week I'm sharing the amazing Stars 12 x 12  Acrylic layout.
I love these acrylic layouts because you don't have to think too much about design, it's already there for you.

Screen Shot 2019-07-10 at 3.00.00 PMYou can also turn the design to accommodate portrait photos too.

StarsAcrylic_LeahCrowe

Print some pictures, add some ink, paper or paint, and done.

I have a star obsession this month and have used the 12" Stars stencil on this layout. I stenciled the background using distress ink.
To really make this layout pop I also edged the acrylic with red pepper alcohol ink.

StarsAcrylic2_LeahCrowe

I adhered pattern paper to the backside of the layout, as well as some photos inside the little stars.
There you have it. Hope your week is amazing!

Leah Crowe

Supplies Used:
Clear Scraps Stars 12x12 Acrylic Layout; 12" Stars Stencil

Clear Scraps 12x12 Acrylic -- Summer Rays

Hi everyone!  Laura here to share some summer sunshine with you today!

Do you have some summer pictures to scrap, but you feel like your stuck in a rut?

Whenever I feel like I want to do something a little different, I grab one

of the Clear Scraps 12x12 Acrylic sheets and then get creative with layers!

Clear_Scraps_12x12 Acrylic LO_Summer Rays

With the acrylic, you can play with so many different things!

I brushed some acrylic paint around the edges on this LO.

You can use alcohol inks or stamp with Staz On ink.

A lot of different options!  I also used the Clear Scraps

4x6 Sunrise Stencil to add a fun element to highlight the picture. 

Clear_Scraps_12x12 Acrylic LO_Summer Rays close up

I used a yellow acrylic paint dauber to apply paint thru the

stencil directly onto the 12x12 acrylic sheet.  Then I

traced thru the stencil onto a piece of patterned paper

to create the center of the sunshine.  I inked the

edges of the paper to finish the "sunshine".

Clear_Scraps_12x12 Acrylic LO_Summer Rays close up 3

I really love how it turned out!  The peach color paper

behind the sunshine is a 9x9 square of paper adhered

down behind the LO.  It shows thru because of the

clear acrylic....love that!  Just make sure you

remove the protective coating layer on both sides of

the 12x12 sheet.  It peels off fairly easily, but keeps

your acrylic sheet protected until your ready to use it!

I also wanted to add another fun little element,

and the Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Shovel.

Clear_Scraps_12x12 Acrylic LO_Summer Rays close up 2

This adds a cute little embellishment....it's been

painted with acrylic paint, then inked around the

edges, and a few sequins added before it was glued

together.  I used the Clear Scraps Fall Sequins.

It looks a little like sand, don't you think?

Hope you enjoyed the project today!  I'm still trying

to decide if I want a title or journaling, so I've kept it

simple today.  Check out the store to grab your

own acrylic sheet to create something fun yourself!

 

Supplies Used: 

Clear Scraps- 12x12 Acrylic Sheet, 4x6 Sunrise Stencil,

Mini Shaker Shovel, Fall Sequins.

Other- Scor Tape, twine, patterned paper, cardstock, acrylic paint.

 

 

 


Summer Mini Mixable Dainty Album

Hello and happy 4th of July!  It's Jennifer on the blog to share a summer-themed mini book I  created using the Mini Mixable Dainty Album.  The Mini Mixables measure only 3.5 x 5 inches with alternating acrylic and chipboard pages.  I find that using wallet sized photos is best in the Mini Mixables.  

Clear_Scraps_Summer_Mini_Mixable_Dainty

Using white acrylic paint, I  covered approximately a half inch of each of the chipboard pages ensuring I  painted the edges as well. I  set them aside to dry to work on my acrylic cover. 

IMG_3511-2

After removing the protective film from both sides of my acrylic page, I  stamped my butterfly image using StazOn in black.  A solvent based ink works best because of the non-porous nature of the acrylic. Your image will "stay" and not smudge after drying.  I  then used different colors of alcohol ink markers on the back of the page to color in the butterflies. You always want to color on the opposite side of stamping.  

IMG_3512-2

I  like to add extra pages to my mini albums by using tags or envelopes. Here, I  added stickers to a manila tag to document about my photos.  

Clear_Scraps_Summer_Mini_Mixable_Dainty2

For my chipboard pages, I  covered them with patterned paper allowing the white edges to show through.  I  also matted my photos on white cardstock for extra dimension.

Clear_Scraps_Summer_Mini_Mixable_Dainty4

Clear_Scraps_Summer_Mini_Mixable_Dainty5

Clear_Scraps_Summer_Mini_Mixable_Dainty6

For this page, I  cut my paper 3.5 x 8 and scored it to create a flap. I  then added some embellishments to the front as well as stapled a tag for opening. 

Clear_Scraps_Summer_Mini_Mixable_Dainty7

I  adhered two photos on the inside as well as journaling. This is a great technique to add extra space to your books!

Using Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheets on your Cards

IMG_3326wm

Summer Greetings!   Today I am excited to share two different ways to use Clear Scraps 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheets. I love coming up with multiple uses for my supplies!  I chose to use the 6 inch Plaid Stencil as a background for both cards. 

IMG_3238IMG_3238

 

For the first card, I chose to die cut my acrylic. 

IMG_3287wm

I used my Big Shot and a Large Sizzix die (not the thinlits).  I did run the acrylic through 2-3 times to insure a full cut.  I was amazed at how well the acrylic cut!

IMG_3234

You can see that this was a somewhat detailed die and still not a problem cutting through the acrylic!  

 

For my second card I decided to stamp onto the acrylic. IMG_3324wm

After stamping my large image onto the acrylic with Staz-on Ink, I colored on the back side of the acrylic with alcohol markers. I love the transparent look you can achieve as you can see below on the open card.

IMG_3318

I hope you are inspired to get creative with your acrylic sheets! 

 

 


Poolside Cutie

Hey friends! Today I am sharing this cute layout featuring Clear Scraps 12x12 Acrylic Sheets and Mirror Embellishments, as well as my adorable grand-daughter in her new sunglasses.

PoolsideCutie_LeahCrowe

The beauty of acrylic is the WOW see-through factor. Wouldn't you agree?
I cut out the mermaid scale background on my silhouette and attached it to the front of the acrylic sheet.
From there, I just built some fun layers to create this adorable layout.

Here's what the layout looks like against white cardstock. I love the look both ways.

PoolsideCutie2_LeahCrowe

I adhered some fun stickers to the butterfly embellishment, if you look close you can see the reflection of the sky in the mirror.

Hearts Wood Card with Joy Clair

CS&JoyClair

Good afternoon, friends! Clear Scraps has teamed up with Joy Clair this week and its been so much fun.

Today I am sharing my Clear Scraps Hearts Wood Card chock full of more goodies from Clear Scraps and cuteness from Joy Clair!HeartsWoodCard_LeahCrowe

I'm pretty much just smitten with the 4x6 Quarterfoil stencil right now. I used distress ink and a paintbrush to apply it to the wood card on the cover and inside panels. I then used the Joy Clair stamps and stazon ink to stamp a sentiment on the wood card base. As you can see it made a lovely impression, especially over the existing ink already on the card from the stencil.

I stamped and colored several of the cute critters from the Deer Friend stamp set using Prismacolor colored pencils, then popped them up on foam tape for some dimension.

Here's a look at the inside.

His & Hers Key Holders with Joy Clair Stamps

Hello Everyone!  Welcome to this weeks project.  This week we are partnering with Joy Clair Stamps

64226687_10156047520426603_5923275486238081024_o

I have created these super cute His & Hers Key Holders.  I have used the Mason Jar Mini Pallet shapes and the Wheel Gears Chipboard Embellishments.  I just love how these have turned out!  Lets get into how I have created these!

Watermarked-20190610_135011

First I started off by painting both the mini pallets with Ivory acrylic paint.  I only need to give them just one coat of paint.
Watermarked-20190610_135011

I then inked the edges of the mini pallets.  For him, I used walnut stain and black soot distress ink.  For her I used Victorian velvet distress ink.  I then used the walnut stain and black soot stain on the wheel gears.
Watermarked-20190610_135011

Nest I used victorian velvet, forest moss and crushed olive distress inks with the Paisley Bouquet Stamp Set from Joy Clair Stamps.  I stamped the images on white card stock which I the fussy cut out.
Watermarked-20190610_135011

I then used the ink and stamps on the mason jar mini pallet.  Just randomly stamping.
Watermarked-20190610_135011

I then adhered the stamped images and the wheel gears to the mini pallets.
Watermarked-20190610_135011

I then took some wood knob pieces that I have inked and glued them to the bottom of the mini pallets.  This is where keys can be hung from.
Watermarked-20190610_135011Watermarked-20190610_135011

I absolutely love how these turned out.  Can you just picture these hung up with his and her key chains hanging from them?  I can!!!

Thanks for joining me on this little tutorial!

Happy Graduation Pallet

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today and this month Clear Scraps has teamed up with Joy Clair Stamps.  

Joy clair

 

I'm using with the Deco Medium DIY Pallet Shape to showcase a photo from my son's college graduation.

Graduate-clearscraps-joyclair-steph-ackerman

At 8" x 8", this 1/8" birch wood pallet needs no preparation or sanding.   It's such a wonderful panel that can be painted or stained or left "as is". I chose to leave the pallet "as is", adding a limited amount of color.

Graduate-clearscraps-joyclair-4-steph-ackerman

I found Joy Clair's Going Places Stamp Set was perfect to use as accents for the graduation photo.  Once I determined where the photo would be placed, I stamped a selection of balloons and the sign post with black ink directly on the pallet.  I arranged the sign post so that it would overlap the panels.

Graduate-clearscraps-joyclair-3-steph-ackerman

I ran a brown ink pad lightly across the panel and around the edges.

Graduate-clearscraps-joyclair-2-steph-ackerman

I added color to the balloons with Memento Markers.

Graduate-clearscraps-joyclair-1-steph-ackerman

I matted the photo and placed it on a slight angle.  I then stamped a number of the phrases from the Going Places stamp set on white cardstock, punched them out and matted them with kraft cardstock.  These are perfect stamps for a graduation layout.

Thanks for stopping by.

Steph

Other Supplies:  Joy Clair Stamps, Versafine Ink, Memento Markers, punches

 


Summer Travel Game Board

Hi everyone!  It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a tutorial to make this fun travel game board using one of the Printer Tray Frames and an acrylic sheet.  

Summer Travel Game Board by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Flat

Whether you're stuck in the car with young ones for a long ride or even camping in the great outdoors, this game board can be customized in a ton of different ways and might be a fun reason to put the phones and tablets away for a little while.

Summer Travel Game Board by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Paint Border

Start by painting one of the chipboard dividers in the Square Printer Tray Frame kit in the color of your choice.  Here I've chosen a sunny yellow acrylic paint that matches the summery scrapbook paper I'll be using on the rest of the board.

Summer Travel Game Board by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Adhere Background

Next, cover the chip back with paper...or for a fun twist, try using photographs to really customize your board!  You can adhere one sheet of 12x12 scrapbook paper for a quick and simple background, or do as I did here and adhere several small squares of coordinating papers.

Summer Travel Game Board by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Adhere Dividers

Adhere the dividers on top of the chip back using strong liquid adhesive like Beacon 3 -in-1 Adhesive.  Set aside to dry fully, then paint the outer edges with the same acrylic paint as the top divider to finish the board off nicely.

Summer Travel Game Board by Annie Williams - Trim Acrylic Game Pieces

To create the game pieces, start by trimming a 12x12 acrylic sheet into 3 3/8 inch squares.  You will need at least five game pieces for each player (X's and O's), so an extra acrylic sheet will be needed in addition to the one included in the Square Printer Tray Frame kit.  Round the corners of each game piece with a corner rounder tool (this allows for easy removal of game pieces and also makes the pieces safer for young children).

Summer Travel Game Board by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Diecut Letters

Die cut at least five X's and five O's from white cardstock (this shows up well on busy backgrounds like mine).  Alternatively, choose two different shapes that match the theme of your game board.

Summer Travel Game Board by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Assemble Game Pieces

Adhere the letters in the center of each acrylic game piece using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and allow to dry.  Since the game pieces are clear, you won't cover up any of the fun customization on the game board while playing.

Summer Travel Game Board by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Final

Now you're ready to play on the go!  The game pieces are sized so that they fit snugly in the board and won't fall out, but are still easy to remove when a new game starts thanks to the rounded corners.  Since the walls of the dividers are much taller than the pieces, they also won't accidentally fall out on a bumpy car ride!

I hope you enjoyed this fun summer travel game project and thanks so much for stopping by today.  How would you customize the square printer tray frame to make your own game board?

Brighten Your Back Yard with Customized Pillows

After placing a piece of cardboard inside my pillow cover, apply all purpose paint in your favorite colors.
