Chipboard

Fin Mini Shaker Layout

Hello! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a layout I created with some awesome Clear Scraps products! Summer is in full swing and I am loving the warm days and extra sunlight! Which of course means time outdoors and fun activities like hanging out at the pool!  I  documenting this adorable photo of my niece and nephew swimming and thought the Fin Mini Shaker Shape would be the perfect focal point!

Clear_Scraps_Fin_Mini_Shaker_layout

I began by painting my top chipboard frame of the shaker using chalk paint in a patina color.  Chalk paint isn't necessary but it does dry quickly.  And I just happened to love this color for my page!  I also painted the inside edges of the middle chipboard frames as well. 

Clear_Scraps_FIn_Mini_Shaker_layout2

Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I adhered patterned paper to the base chipboard of my shaker. I cut away excess paper with scissors and an x-acto knife. I  finished by sanding the edges to smooth any rough spots. 

Clear_Scraps_FIn_Mini_Shaker_layout3

Again using my Beacon adhesive, I adhered my two middle frames to the base as shown.  I then added a few different varieties of chunky glitter to the center of my shaker.  For adhering the acrylic piece, it is best to add your adhesive onto the chipboard as apposed to the acrylic overlay.  This will prevent smudging on the acrylic.

Here is the close up of the end result! I did again use my Beacon to adhere the Fin to my layout for a good seal.

For my background, I secured the 12 Inch Fish Scales Mascil to my 12x12 white cardstock with washi tape. I then blended four different Distress Oxide Inks as shown. 

Clear_Scraps_Fin_Mini_Shaker_layout6

Here is a close up of the stencil + oxide ink! I love the bright colors and how it turned out!

Lastly, I added in different embellishments from the collection I used to accent my page!

Country Kitchen Slimline Scalloped Album

Hello Crafters!

Dana here! I love creating albums! How about you? Have you seen all the new Slimline albums from Clear Scraps? We will be using Clear Scraps  Wood Scalloped Slimline album for today's project Click Here    and the new Scalloped Chipboard border Click Here

To start, I painted a one inch border on all pages using Acrylic paint (Parchment) let dry. I took my chipboard scalloped border and painted both the front, back and edges using cherry red acrylic paint. Set aside to dry.

20210613_185635

The papers I chose to use are Carta Bella Country Kitchen collection, which includes matching ephermera, tags and stickers. All base papers will measure 41/4 x 10 1/4 inches. For the front cover,  I cut another paper at 3 3/4 x 9 3/4 inches to adhere on top of my base paper, using foam tape. I added some banner stickers along the scalloped edge of my album. I decorated the front cover with some ephermera,  sentiment titles, added foam dots to the back of my vintage gal sticker and adhered to the right of my album. I fussy cut out the canning jars, inked the edges and added pop dots before adhering to the bottom of my album cover.

20210616_144848

Page 1: I added a pocket, and border edge using a border punch from my stash. Tucked in acouple journaling cards. Added some sticker sentiments and pop dots to my milk bottle cap!

Page 2: I added a cream cardstock photo mat measuring (3 1/4 x 5) and memories tab sticker on the left top. Took two ephermera pieces and adhered to the  top and bottom of my page using foam dots. 

20210616_185727

Page 3: I made a flip up page measuring 4 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches, scored 1/2 inch at the top, added a punched border at the bottom and adhered this piece to the top of my page. I added a scalloped border sticker on the top. Took the Rooster ephemera tag and adhered to my flap page along with a button at the top of my tag. You could add a photo underneath the flip up page.

Page 4: I took another ephemera card and adhered slightly below the top page using foam dots. This would be a perfect place to add a favorite recipe! I adhered a rooster sticker at the bottom along with some rub on sentiments to finish my page. 

20210616_192527

Page 5: I made another pocket page, using yellow cardstock and added a sticker border to the top of my pocket. Pop dots to my sentiment and garden lady ephermera pieces. 

Page 6: I made a side pocket using red cardstock,  measuring 3 1/4 x 10 1/4 inches, added a punch border. This pocket will open to the right. I like to add a few journaling cards and tag with some twine tied at the top of my tag. Ephermera sentiment and a frame in the middle of the page. You could slip a photo inside the frame if you like! Sentiment  at the top and a vase/daisies sticker at the bottom of my pocket. 

20210617_141052

Page 7: Made another pocket using a larger journaling card, tucked in a few ephermera cards and tag with some twine tied at the top! Farm to table sticker at the top of the page. 

Page 8: Another pocket with a punched border edge, some canning jar stickers at the bottom using foam dots. Tucked a few cards into the pocket. 

20210617_151628

Now take your pages and attach together using metal rings. Take your scalloped chipboard border piece, mark the holes and punch out using a Crocodile hole punch. Add the chipboard border to the front of your album. To finish off, I tied acouple ribbons to my metal rings.

Wood House Shape Home Decor

Hello crafty friends and happy Friday! It's Maya here on the blog today to share a wood house home decor featuring one of the Wood Shapes and the Chipboard Word Titles. I also used the Brick Wall Masking Stencil to add some patterns to the background. The house wood shape is just so perfect for a family photo and I used one of our pre-wedding photos to create this Home Sweet Home project. Absolutely love how it turned out!

P1210384_post

▼ Here I used the Wood House Shape and Home Word Title for today's project.

20210707_153325

▼ I began by painting the house shape and the Home word title with acrylic paints in pink and brown. 

20210707_155914

▼ After acrylic paints dried, I glued a piece of twin to enrich the background.

20210708_131336

▼ I also added some brick patterns by using the Brick Wall Masking Stencil along with brown acrylic paint to add some textures to the background.

20210708_132124

▼ As you can see, here I fussy cut a photo frame and some florals from patterned papers for decoration and layering. My little tip to add some depth for layering is to adhere the second or third layer of ephemera with double-sided adhesive foams. 

▼ Before I glued my photo and all the decorative pieces to the house shape, I also added a piece of lace ribbon for extra touches.

Mouse Medium DIY Pallet Shape

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a fun home project I created using the Mouse Medium DIY Pallet Shape along with a couple Clear Scraps products! And I'm going to show you the techniques I used so you can hopefully feel inspired to do some Clear Scraps crafting of your own!

Clear_Scraps_Mouse_Medium_DIY_Pallet

I began by painting the front of my pallet with acrylic paint in black. I also used the same paint to color the Mouse 2 Chipboard Embellishment Shapes.  I then set aside both to dry. 

Clear_Scraps_Mouse_Medium_DIY_Pallet2

I measured out a strip of patterned paper to adhere to the middle slat of my pallet. For this particular section, I cut 2 3/4 x 10 inches then used an x-acto knife to trim the edges.  After, I lightly sanded to smooth any paper overhangs. 

Clear_Scraps_Mouse_Medium_DIY_Pallet3

Next, using my 4x6 Stars Stencil I used a spatula to apply metallic embellishment mousse to the bottom and top slats of the pallet.  The color is almost a gun metal grey and looks nice in contrast against the black. 

Clear_Scraps_Mouse_Medium_DIY_Pallet4

After ensuring my paint was dry on the chipboard embellishments, I applied embossing ink to each followed by black glitter embossing powder.  Each were set with a heat gun and adhered using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. 

Clear_Scraps_Mouse_Medium_DIY_Pallet5

Here is a close up of the second Mouse 2 Chipboard Embellishment Shape! You can also see the stencil/mousse end result as well!

Last, I punched holes at the top sides of the pallet to string some fun chevron red/white ribbon to be able to hang my creation!

Baby Cards with Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments

Hi everyone, I've got a set of baby cards to share using the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments.

Bunny-baby-card-clearscraps-4-steph-ackerman
 
I love creating baby cards, don't you?  There are so many different elements you can use and so many different styles of baby cards you can create.
 
Bunny-baby-card-clearscraps-steph-ackerman
 
I used the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments, inking and embossing them in different colors. 
Putting them aside, I started creating my cards.
 
 
I had this great baby paper that had both a boy and girl design so I could create similar cards and have the focal point as the bunnies.
 
Bunny-baby-card-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman
 
Creating a card from pink cardstock, I matted the checked panel with the same cardstock and wrapped it with ribbon.  The baby panels were also matted with cardstock and added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.  The pink bunny was adhered just below the Baby Girl tag.

Creating a 2nd card from blue cardstock, I matted the checked panel with the same cardstock and wrapped it with ribbon.  The baby panels were also matted with cardstock and added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.  The blue bunny was adhered just below the Baby Boy tag.
 
So just remember that bunnies are not just for Easter!

Days Gone By Layout

Hi Crafty Friends!

I'm Dana and happy to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today! Do you love to scrapbook? Have you tried creating a layout on acrylic? It's so versatile and you can use many different craft mediums and apply to your acrylic to get the look you desire or specific theme.

For today's project I'm using Clear Scraps XL Scalloped shape. Click Here but there's many different styles to chose from. We will also be using Clear Scraps Chipboard heart Click Here and feathers chipboard Click Here

20210610_130424

My papers I chose are from Blue Fern and are from their Jane's Memoirs collection. Since I'm creating a heritage layout, I thought these would be perfect!

To start, we will be decorating our chipboard shapes first. For the heart, cut away from your outside chipboard piece. You can save this outside piece for another project. I covered the main heart with some glitter, and painted the smaller heart inside with pink acrylic paint. Let dry. After it dries, I took some Pebeo Gliding wax -Gold, and rubbed with my finger over the swirled areas on my chipboard heart. Then I chose a background paper to decorate the inside of my heart. I traced and cut it out. Applied to the back of my chipboard heart with glue. I prefer to use Beacon 3 in 1 glue. It grabs quickly and has a permanent bond. Set your heart aside. 

20210611_141129

For the feather chipboard I applied some Finnibair rust pastes using a stiff brush and a pouncing motion. I like the effect this creates. Gives it a weathered rusty look. Let dry.

20210610_151825

Next chose a background paper of your choice. I cut my 12x12 paper on all sides to measure about 10x10 inches. This leaves a nice clear edge of acrylic showing. I used a Clear adhesive tape to attach my scrapbook paper to the back of my acrylic sheet. I only applied tape to the four corners. You may use a clear drying craft glue, but be careful not too apply too much. Then I applied ink lightly to the edges of my acrylic sheet. I used Spectrum Noir Midas Metallic Ink in Rose Gold.

Now you can start planning how you want to decorate your layout. I chose a vintage photo of my grandparents as my main focal point. I matted my photo on cream cardstock and adhered to the middle left side of my page.  I fussy cut out a tiny envelope and ticket from ephermera pack. Scored and glued together my tiny envelope and tucked my ticket inside. Added a heart gem. Glued my envelope to the bottom right corner. 

I glued my chipboard feather along the bottom of my page. The chipboard heart I glued above my photo at the top, using some foam tape on the back. This adds some dimension! I took a small paper rose and inked over the edges with some Distress Ink to give it an aged look. I then adhered my rose to the top of my chipboard heart. 

To finish off my layout, I arranged and glued some flowers along the edge of my envelope at the bottom. I adhered some letters for my title on my page.

Balloon Mini Shaker Layout

Hello and happy Friday!  It's a holiday weekend here in the US which means a longer weekend for most of us!  I love celebrating with family and this includes special milestones like birthdays!  I created a layout using the new Balloon Mini Shaker Shape and will show you the techniques I used. 

Clear_Scraps_Balloons_Mini_Shaker_layout

I painted the front surface of the top chipboard frame of my shaker. I then used my Beacon Adhesive to adhere the two middle chipboard frames together. I  used the same paint to cover the edges of the frames. I set them aside to dry to work on decorating the base. 

Clear_Scraps_Balloons_Mini_Shaker_layout2

Again using my Beacon Adhesive, I adhered patterned paper to the front of my chipboard base. I trimmed away excess using scissors as well as an x-acto knife. I  followed up with a sanding tool to smooth any rough edges. 


Clear_Scraps_Balloons_Mini_Shaker_layout3

Next, I adhered my two middle chipboard frames as shown.  Before adding my chunky glitter, I used an embossing bag to de-static the area.  I then adhered my acrylic piece applying adhesive to the chipboard.  After I was happy with placement, I used clips to hold my shaker together to ensure a good seal. 

Clear_Scraps_Balloons_Mini_Shaker_layout4

I  dabbed the front chipboard frame with embossing ink followed by using a bright blue embossing powder.  I had thought about doing a light pink but thought the blue would be a better contrast.  After the powder was set, I adhered it to the shaker with my Beacon Adhesive. 

Clear_Scraps_Balloon_Mini_Shaker_layout5

And here is a close up of my shaker assembled!  Using a solvent based liquid adhesive is usually best to adhere the shakers to your projects.  

Clear_Scraps_Balloons_Mini_Shaker_layout6

I added smaller stickers as well as brads and enamel dots to accent around my photo. You can also see I  stamped the date as well as added a sentiment. (I  have hoarded a large collection of roller stamps!)

Summer Beach Themed Layout

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! Who is ready for sunny days and beachy weather? It's Maya here on the blog today to share this 8.5 x 11 beach-themed layout featuring the Fan-shells Chipboard Embellishments. I'm a huge fan of chipboard embellishments because they can be used on any project like layouts, cards, tags, albums, etc.

P1210362_post

▼ I used an 8.5 x 11 white paper for the background paper. Then, I tore the patterned papers into pieces and laid them to the top and the bottom of the layout to create a beachy atmosphere with blue skies and sand. 

▼ For the seashell chipboard embellishments, I painted them with acrylic paint in white. After the white acrylic paint dried, I applied dry brush paint to add some blue color to the seashells. I used a dry brush and loaded a small amount of blue acrylic paint. Next, I used a piece of tissue to swirl the paintbrush into it and get rid of the wetness from the paint. The key to getting an ideal dry brush effect is by using light pressure to go over the surface.

▼ After I adhered the seashell chipboards to the layout, I also used some ephemera to decorate around the seashells that I fussy cut from a patterned paper.

The size of my photo is 3 x 4 and I covered it with a door frame. Again, I decorated around the photo using the beach-themed pieces I fussy cut from a patterned paper to finish this layout.

Thank you all for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to use chipboard embellishments on your project. Have a blessed day and happy crafting!

Multi Stars Chipboard Embellishment Pallet

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a patriotic 4th of July home decor project I created using some fabulous Clear Scraps products! And I'm going to walk you through the techniques I used! 

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet

Starting with the Square Medium DIY Pallet Shape, I painted the front with two coats of chalk paint in red.  Just about any type of paint will use but chalk is my favorite as it dries quickly and looks nice with the birch wood. 

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet2

Once my paint was dry I was ready to use my Mascil.  Using a spatula and the 6 Inch Fireworks Splash Mascil, I applied gold metallic texture paste to the front of my pallet.  Since the Mascil doesn't quite fit the entire pallet, I allowed each area to dry before re-applying my stencil.  

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet3

I set aside my pallet to dry to work on the Multi Stars Chipboard Embellishment Shapes!  I painted each one with white chalk paint followed by adding embossing ink + powder to accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet4

Here is a close up shot of the stars! I  ended up only using three of the four from the set.  I love how they look next to the gold metallic!

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet5

I added a favorite photo from a past holiday along with patterned paper as well as some cute bakers twine. 

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet6

I used my Big Bite to punch holes in the top of my pallet to string this cute plaid red, white, and blue ribbon through to hang my creation!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Hope this inspires you to create with Clear Scraps today! Have a wonderful day!

America the Beautiful Slimline Album

Hello Crafty Friends!

Dana here! I love creating mini albums all year long!  For today's project,  I'm using Clear Scraps new Slimline acrylic album. Click Here I love the sleek Deco style and this will be perfect for all your 4th of July family photos! We'll also be using Clear Scraps Deco Chipboard borders Click Here  and Chipboard Multi Stars Click Here

20210517_141146

We will start by cutting apart our multi stars and save the chipboard frame piece for another project. I used acrylic paint in white for one of my stars. The red and blue stars I inked with Versamark clear ink and added red and blue embossing powers on top. Heat with your heat tool. Set them aside. 

20210518_152835

Next take apart your acrylic album. We will be covering the front, and back album pages with paper measuring 4 5/8 x 10 5/8 inches. Some pages I cut smaller to create pockets and leave some of the see thru acrylic visible. I will explain as we go along. The paper I'm using is from Carta Bella "God Bless America" paper collection. Be sure to not add adhesive where it will show through the acrylic. Also don't forget to peel off the protective film on both sides of all your pages, before decorating. Also mark and punch holes in all your album pages as you go along. 

For page 1,  I cut my pocket at 4 1/2 x 5 1/2. Tucked some journaling cards inside my pocket. Added a ephemera piece with foam dots in the upper left corner. Page 2, I cut a polka dot paper measuring  4x7 inches. Score 1/2 inch on left to make a flip page. Add some stickers on top.

20210520_140714

Page 3, I cut another pocket, added a sticker in the upper right corner and tucked one of the journaling cards inside the pocket. Page 4, I used a diecut from my stash, to decorate the top portion of my page. Took a frame and added an ephemera card to the back of my frame and adhered with foam dots to the top of page. The bottom of my page, I adhered a journaling card and a few stickers.

20210520_140813

Page 5, I adhered a journaling card over the previous journaling card. For page 6, take and cut apart one of the Deco Chipboard borders. You can save the other border for another album or project. I painted my border with bright red acrylic paint on both sides. Let dry. Then I added a sticker border to left edge and a few stars on the right side.

20210519_184236

For page 6, cut your paper 4 5/8 x 10 5/8 adhere to your album page. Then take some Beacon 3 in 1 glue, and adhere your chipboard border to the right edge of your album page, making sure you line up all edges evenly.

 

20210520_140916

For the last two pages, I cut both papers at 4 5/8 x 10 5/8. For page 7, I cut my paper at 3 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches. I scored 1/2 inch at the top to make a flip up page. I added a sticker at the bottom of my flip page with foam dots. I love the added dimension it creates. Page 8,  I cut my paper 4 1/2 x 7 inches and adhered in the middle of my page. The paper that shows through is your back cover paper. I added some USA stickers to the bottom of page with foam dots.

20210520_141006

To finish my album cover, I added a piece twine, adhered some banner flags on top of my twine with foam dots. Glued my chipboard multi stars to scattered areas on my album cover. Added a sentiment ephermera piece with foam dots to my cover. Then tied my pages together with ribbons and tulle!

Father's Day Card with new Chipboard Border

Hi Ya!

Tami here with you on the blog today with a Father's Day card to share.

I wanted to design something using one of Clear Scraps' new Chipboard Borders; they come in 5 different designs. They measure 11" long so they are a perfect fit for Clear Scraps' new Slimline Albums. They are also great to use on slimline style cards, or--- if you cut them in half you get 2 - 5 1/2" pieces which fit exactly on a standard 4 1/4 X 5 1/2" card.

While looking the borders over, I thought that the semi circle cut outs on the Curves Chipboard Borders might be interesting to play with.

I needed a card for my hubbie for Father's Day, so I decided to pull out some cardstock, inks and trim in blues and browns along with some Father's Day stamps.

The stamp set had a circle Happy Father's Day sentiment that seemed to match up to the size of the cut outs in the borders, so I started there, and kept adding!

Here's how the card turned out...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_wm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's how I made it... first, I cut one of the borders in half then inked with several different shades of blue and brown ink...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_1

Next, I inked up a piece of white cardstock in different shades of blue, spritzed it lightly with water, blotted gently and set it aside to dry...

Once the cardstock had dried, I cut a 3 1/2 X 5 1/4" piece and punched out 3 circles...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_punch

I masked off the bottom of the circle sentiment, inked the stamp, removed the mask and stamped at the top of a circle; repeat for other 2 circles...

I also stamped the sentiment for the card on a leftover piece of the inked paper and hand cut it in the shape of a tag...

Clear_scraps_chipboard_curves_border_fathers_day_card_tami_sanders_tag

I adhered pieces of twine on the ends of the back of the border with double sided tape, then tied the towards the top...

Then it was time to assemble, I started by adhering the inked paper towards the right side of a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 kraft card base, then adhered the circles to the back of the border before adhering it towards the left of the card base. Attaching the tag with thin twine and a tiny pin finished the card...

Flower Garden Card and Tag

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Dana and I'm back to share a card and matching tag I creates to hopefully inspire you! I love sending my friends and family homemade cards. So I thought why not create a matching tag too! I'm using Clear Scraps Chipboard tags Click Here

And for my card I chose to use one of Clear Scraps Chipboard wordsClick Here

I fell in love with Carta Bella new Flower Garden collection so I thought this would be perfect for Spring!

For my tag: I traced my tag shape twice onto one of the papers in this collection. These tags measure 3.75 x 6.75 inches. For this project I only one of the tags. I'll save the other three to use on future projects. Cut out your tag shape, punch a hole at the top. Adhere your paper to the front and back of your chipboard tag. I prefer using Beacons 3 in 1 glue. It's fast drying and adheres quickly.  Then I took one of the journaling cards, inked the edges and added foam dots to the back, before adhering to the center of my tag. I glued a matching chipboard over the marching journaling card image. Added a sticker border to the bottom of my tag, along with a sticker flower on the left side (I used foam dots to adhere flower) 20210413_183902

To finish off my tag, I matted a sticker sentiment onto green coordinating paper adhered this at the top with foam dots. Adhered 3 enamel dots to the right side of my journaling card. Tied some matching ribbons through the hole at the top!

For my card: My card measures 6x6 inches. I added the coordinating green paper over the base of my card with glue. For the next two card layers I cut my papers slightly smaller and matted then onto my card using foam tape. This adds dimension and a nice layered look to your card. Set your card aside for now. 

Next we will decorate our chipboard "Love" words. I chose to apply some Art Alchemy Impasto paint (Mint) to my chipboard surface, using a slight pouncing motion. It adds a nice textured look. Let dry.

Next I chose one of ephemera cards sentiment, inked the edges with a light blue distress ink. Then added some foam dots to the back and adhered to the top center of my card. I fussy cut a few flowers from my sticker sheet and pop dot them onto my ephermera card. I added some dazzle stickers to my flower centers. 

Now take your Love chipboard word and adhere with glue to the bottom of your card. I took another empherma word title, cut it apart, inked the edges and glued on the bottom right side of my card. To finish off my card, I pop dot a flower pot above my grows here sentiment. Added a few enamel dots.

Seashell Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends! It's Maya here on the blog today to share this beach themed shaker card featuring the mini shaker shell. I am a big fan of all the shakers and I enjoy using them to create shaker cards, turning them into something unique!

▼ The shaker pack includes 1 chipboard back, 3 chipboard forms, and 1 acrylic divider.

20210422_131737

▼ I started by decorating the shell shaker. First, I laid a chipboard form on a patterned paper, traced the shape using a pencil, cut it out, and adhered to the chipboard back using tacky glue.

20210422_143917

▼ Here I adhered two chipboard forms to the chipboard back and placed the sequins. Then, remove protective films on both sides of the acrylic divider and glue it to the chipboard form.

20210422_144921

▼ Next, I gave a coat of white embossing powder to the chipboard form and used tacky glue to adhere it to the top of the shell.

20210422_154318

▼ Here you can see all the ephemera that I fussy cut from a patterned paper. I used them to layer and decorate around the card.

20210422_165324

▼ The card size is 6.5 x 5 inches. I used white card stock and covered it with a wood grain patterned paper for the background. And I just layered and glued all the elements and the shell shaker to finish the card.

Clear Scraps This is Us Desktop Frame--Wedding Gift Frame

Hey everybody!  Laura here to share with you today!  I've got a great gift idea that would

be perfect for an anniversary, wedding, engagement, or even someone that is expecting

to use for their first family picture!

Clear_Scraps_This Is Us Desktop Frame_Wedding Gift Frame(1)

Isn't this frame simply sweet?  Best yet, this can be created using up those scraps of

pretty patterned paper you haven't been able to part with!  Time to use them for a

pretty frame to give to someone special as a gift!  And it all starts with the Clear Scraps

This is Us Desktop Frame!  Are you familiar with our desktop frames?  The are easy

to decorate any way you'd like and either spruce up your home decor with a favorite

memory, or make a few to have on hand for adorable gifts!  And even better, the frame

doesn't have to be glued into the base if you want to mail it, so it just pops out to fold

flat!  I love this option, especially for gift giving!

Clear_Scraps_This Is Us Desktop Frame_Wedding Gift Frame(3)

Here you can see I painted most of the frame and base using black acrylic paint.

I did paint the rectangle on the frame using white paint, and brushed just a bit of gray

to give it a bit of a distressed wood/farmhouse look.  The smaller part of the base and

behind the frame, I added a black and white floral pretty patterned paper, and then a

small rectangle of black and then white cardstock layered to create a spot to put a picture. 

You can leave the top of the frame unglued if you'd rather to slip in a larger picture.  I also

added a few heart and flower stickers which fits the wedding theme well.  The black and 

white is a nice compliment to any color that the bride and groom or bridal party wear.

It's painted with black acrylic paint and just glued right onto the frame.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Welcome Sign

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here sharing a new Welcome Sign I created.  Clear Scraps has some amazing products that can be mixed and matched to create some amazing projects.

Welcome-wood-panel-5-steph-ackerman

Using the Rectangle 12x10 Medium DIY Pallet, I painted it with both blue and green paints to simulate both the grass and sky.

Welcome-wood-panel-1-steph-ackerman

I also had this wonderful Welcome XL Script Wood Word I wanted to use.
The wood contrast against the painted background stood out, so I left it plain.
I could have painted it, or even inked it, but I liked the contrast.
I adhered it across the panel on a slight angle.

Welcome-wood-panel-2-steph-ackerman

For some added dimension, I placed the 4x6 Grass Stencil along the bottom edge, inking it with green ink and moving it along the bottom edge until it was completely inked.

Welcome-wood-panel-3-steph-ackerman

I chose an ink shade a little darker than the paint as I didn't want it to stand out.
I just wanted the hint of dimension.

Welcome-wood-panel-4-steph-ackerman

Next, I chose the Chipboard Wheelbarrow Embellishments, cutting them from the frame and inking each piece.
I embossed each piece with clear embossing powder for a shiny effect.
The watering can was placed in the upper left corner.
The wheelbarrow was placed amongst the grass in the lower right corner.
Several flowers were added atop the wheelbarrow for a 3D effect.
