Clear Scraps Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album- It's a Boy!

Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today!

Need a great gift for a baby shower, or for someone about to

have a little one?  This cute little Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album

from Clear Scraps is such a sweet one, and makes a perfect gift!

Clear_Scraps_Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album

The album's first page is this cute little pair of overalls, you

can cover with patterned paper (like I did here) or paint.

Love the way the page behind looks like a little t-shirt with it's

sleeves peeking out!  It looks great with the contrasting paper!

The It's a Boy is one of the Clear Scraps Chipboard Word Titles.

They have a lot of options, and also have one that says It's a Girl.

Clear_Scraps_Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album_page 2

Here is the back of the overalls.  Just a few stickers, and a journal

box make a super simple page, but so adorable too!

Clear_Scraps_Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album_page 3

Here is the first of the t-shirt pages.  I put the spot for the picture

a little lower on this first one, so nothing would show through

at the neckline of the front page when the album was closed up.

Clear_Scraps_Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album_page 4(1)

It's always good to include some blank journal cards in a mini album

 so the recipient can add a little story, or it could be used for a photo.

Clear_Scraps_Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album_page 8

I used a different patterned paper on every page, to make it a little

more interesting.  You can mix it up any way you like, all the pages

could be the same, and then use the mats and embellishments to

make each page different.  One of the great things about this

chipboard albums, they are a blank canvas you can make your own!

Clear_Scraps_Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album_page 9

The last page before the back cover, love the cute little trains!

Clear_Scraps_Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album_page 10

For the back cover, you very well could just leave it blank, or just

add a sticker or journal card/box, but I wanted to give plenty of

space for those adorable newborn pictures, so I added another

photo mat and a few more embellishments to finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Make sure to stop by the Clear Scraps store to check out their

chipboard albums!  They have a lot to choose from and they

make such great gifts, or a wonderful memory book to keep!

Ice Cream Shaker Card

Hiya, Clear Scraps fam!! It's been so hot this year and I thought crafting something cool may help cool me off.
(It didn't, but it was fun! lol)

Here is this awesome Mini Shaker Ice Cream card.

IcecreamShakerCard_LeahCrowe

I have a video on youtube sharing how this interactive card opens up. I just love the shaker and show you how I quickly put it together.

IcecreamShaker_LeahCrowe
I used these two inks to color the very top frame.
I then chose papers from a 6x6 paper pad and used another frame to trace the ice cream scoops.

IcecreamShaker2_LeahCroweIf you trace the inside of the pieces, just cut around the outside of the trace 1/8" and then erase the pencil marks.
Then adhere to the back of the frame. Repeat until your scoops are flavored with the right paper! ;)

IcecreamShaker3_LeahCrowe
Once all the layers are adhered, I go back in with the 5x9 Stripes stencil to create the waffle cone effect.

IcecreamShakerCard2_LeahCrowe
I used my cutting machine and a Lori Whitlock file to create this fun Twist Pop card.

IcecreamShakerCard3_LeahCrowe

I think I will add a birthday message on the bottom, it's perfect for a Birthday card!

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

This is Us Wood Frame by Steph

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here using the XL Birch Wood Frame - This is Us.

Us-pallet-clearscraps-7-steph-ackerman

 

At approximately 19" x 12", this  is a fun way to showcase several theme related photos.  I slipped in 2  photos - each 4 1/2" x 6" - and adhered the edges with wood glue.  You can even use glue dots or velcro dots  if you want to be able to swap out the photos at some point.

Us-pallet-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman

I began by painting the panel with plum paint.

Us-pallet-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman

Once dry, I used the 6" Fern Stencil  to add designs about the panel with modeling paste.

Us-pallet-clearscraps-4-steph-ackerman

Using the Expressions Small Vacation Word Title, I first removed the protective film and added glue.  Then I poured on Stampendous Glitter and allowed it to dry.

Us-pallet-clearscraps-6-steph-ackerman

Once dry, I removed the protective film from the other side and glued it between the photo frames.

Us-pallet-clearscraps-8-steph-ackerman

Using spray inks, I spritzed shades of blue about the panel to coordinate with the Vacation Word Title.

Us-pallet-clearscraps-7-steph-ackerman

To finish, I added some black and white flowers about the panel.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bright Side of Life Pallet

Hello and happy Saturday! It's Jennifer to share a home decor project I  created with the Rectangle Medium DIY Pallet Shape. And I'm going to show you the techniques I  used! 

Clear_Scraps_Edison_Lights_Chipboard_Pallet
I  began by painting the front of my pallet with chalk paint in grey. I  only applied one coat and allowed portions of the wood to show through the paint.  

Clear_Scraps_Edison_Lights_Chipboard_Pallet2

I  wanted my embellishments to be the focal point of my pallet. Using the Edison Light Bulbs Chipboard Embellishment Shapes, I  applied black and yellow paint to each. I  tried to color them to be similar to an actual Edison-shaped light.  I  thought about making the "bulb" section white but thought that would be too many colors. Therefore, I  opted for the black and yellow. 

Clear_Scraps_Edison_Lights_Chipboard_Pallet3

Here is the end result of the painted chipboard! I  adhered them using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and love how the lights look against the grey background! 

Clear_Scraps_Edison_Lights_Chipboard_Pallet4

I  adhered 3 two inch sections of patterned paper for my title, as well as for my photo to fit the slats of the pallet.  Using a favorite cut file and yellow print, I  adhered my title to the navy polka dot background. I  also added stickers and chipboard from the collection I  used. 

Clear_Scraps_Edison_Lights_Chipboard_Pallet5

I  also added additional embellishments around my photo to accent. I    did not want to add too much as I  did not want to take away from the Edison Lights.

Christmas in July - Fence Ornaments

Hi everyone, and welcome to Christmas in July!!

Today I have created these super cute and very easy Christmas ornaments.

I have used the Fence Chipboard Embellishments to create the ornaments.  They turned out amazing.

I wanted to show that these can be used in another way, not just as an embellishment for a layout or card.

So lets get started!!

Watermarked-20190715_061610

First I painted each of the pieces with a brown acrylic paint.

Watermarked-20190715_061628

I then painted it with some crackle medium.  Letting each layer dry before adding the next layer. 

I wanted a really nice crack so I made sure to apply the crackle medium really thick.

Watermarked-20190715_061640

Once those two layers were dry, I then painted them with ivory acrylic paint.  I brushed it on very evenly in one coat. 

Don't go back over to add more or it won't crack.

Once each of the pieces were dry, I distressed them with walnut stain distress ink. 

Highlighting all those nice cracks.  I wanted them to almost look like weathered wood.

Watermarked-20190715_061653

I punched holes and added some twine as a hanger.

I added flowers from my stash and then used some nice glitter to give it a sparkle.

I hope you give these a try.

They will look amazing on the Christmas tree this year!!

Thanks Kim :)

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.

 

 

 


Chipboard embellishments by Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Geckos Chipboard embellishments by Clear Scraps!!!  They were so perfect for this page. Let me show you why I say that~

Geckos_chipboard_Clear Scraps_C. Mercer
This is my granddaughter with her Bearded Dragon she is raising.  So when I saw the Geckos chipboard, by Clear Scraps,  I thought close enough, right?  The chipboard piece looks super cute with these photos.  

Geckos1_embellishments_Clear Scraps_C. Mercer
The chipboard Gecko was heat embossed using chunky embossing powder.  Love the texture the chunky embossing powder gives the chipboard image.  The thing with embossing powder is, you can add different colors to get a different look.  Fun to try on cute chipboard images!!  Clear Scraps has a large selection of super cute chipboard images, titles and words!!!  They look so amazing on all paper crafts! 

Geckos2_chipboard_embellishments_Clear Scraps_C. Mercer

The journal text was hidden under the large photo.  I even added an extra tag so my granddaughter can add her thoughts on raising a Bearded Dragon.

CSCEgeckos-2
The Geckos shape comes in a package of two.  That alone is pretty cool.  Use one and have one for another project.

Thanks for stopping by~

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!

Mixed Media Beach Tag

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here to share a mixed media beach tag.   

Beach-tag-6-steph-ackerman

Using one of the tags from the Chipboard Tag Album, I began by first painting it with gesso. The Tag Album has 4 different shaped tags that  can be used for an assortment of projects.  I decided to use one to create a mixed media tag with an assortment of elements.  Once the gesso dried, I added several colors of spray inks to create the background.

Beach-tag-steph-ackerman Beach-tag-1-steph-ackerman

Mesh was also spritzed then adhered to the left corner.  I also added several sizes of art stones as well as some sea shells created from Makin's Clay for dimension.

Beach-tag-2-steph-ackerman

Once dry, I spritzed additional colors of inks to give the tag more life.  In the center of the tag, I added more art stones.

Beach-tag-5-steph-ackerman

I stamped and colored a Prima doll stamp, fussy cut her and added her to the tag with foam adhesives.

Beach-tag-7-steph-ackerman

Isn't she sweet?
