Vacation Shaker Magnets

Vacation Shaker Magnets by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Hi everyone!  It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a quick tutorial for these cute little shaker magnets.  I don't know about you, but the hint of spring in the air has me dreaming of summer vacation already, and these little magnets are the perfect way to remind myself that I'll be lying on the beach or heading off in our camper in no time!

Vacation Shaker Magnets by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Flip Flop Detail

Of all the new shakers in the Clear Scraps shop, the little flip flops may be my favorite!  First I traced the sandal shape onto some bright and summery scrapbook paper and then I cut it out and adhered it to the chip back shape with liquid glue.  After adhering two more chip forms on top of the chip back with liquid glue, I added sand from one of my family's more recent beach trips and sealed the memories inside with the acrylic divider.  To coat the top chip form in shiny black enamel, I applied Versamark ink and black embossing powder before melting it with my heat tool.

Vacation Shaker Magnets by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Camper Detail

The camper shaker was assembled in much the same way, trading in some pine tree scrapbook paper for the summery pattern and silver embossing powder for the black embossing powder.  I added woodgrain and forest green sequins to the shaker before sealing it up with the acrylic divider that I applied a blue foil rub-on sentiment to the front of.

I added strong magnets to the back of each shaker with hot glue so that I could stick these to my kitchen appliances and dream of summer vacations past and those to come!

Clear Scraps Mini Shaker -- Luck of the Irish

Hello there everyone!  Laura here with you today to share

a bit of Irish luck with you, in this cute little card!

Clear_Scraps_Mini Shaker_Luck of the Irish

Being Irish, I've got to admit, St. Patty's is one of my

favorite holidays!  I love creating cards and home

decor projects with the pretty paper collections and

the rainbow of colors, just like this card shows off

all of those bright, fun colors!  And even though

St. Patty's has passed, why not just send a few

"luck of the Irish" cards just because?  And this

card is super simple, because all the focus is on the

star of the show, the adorable Clear Scraps shaker!

Clear_Scraps_Mini Shaker_Luck of the Irish close up 1

This one is the Mini Shaker Mason Jar.  So fun to just

trace on paper to create a background, like I did here

with the cute lucky shamrock paper, then layer it up

adding a few beads and sequins to create a shimmery

bit of sparkle under the acrylic layer!  These mini shakers

are so fun to create with!  And don't be afraid to use them

 to make cards! If you are giving in person, or adding to

a package, they really make a wonderful addition to any

gift!  You can see, I also added a few stickers, layering

them on using some foam tape.  Just a few, I didn't want

to overwhelm the shaker.  It's great even on it's own!

Before I put it all together, I did paint the outside of the

jar.  I used black acrylic paint on the body of the jar, and

then used gray paint on the lid.

Clear_Scraps_Mini Shaker_Luck of the Irish close up 2

I added a little bit of black paint to the lid using a foam

brush with barely and paint on it to give the lid an aged

look, then tied a bit of twine around the base of the lid

to give it a bit of color.  It adds a nice finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by today!

On this one, I covered each piece individually with

paper, then brushed the edges with acrylic paint.  Ink

was a little more subtle than I wanted.   I wanted it to

be bright and cheerful since it was a springtime project.

Then, super easy, I basically created a cute card front!

Just layered up a little paper and a few stickers, and

attached to one of the puzzle pieces.

The next piece was covered with pretty bright flower

patterned paper, and in addition to the stickers.

Easter Panel by Steph

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today using some of the new products available at ClearScraps.

Easter-clearscraps-4-steph-ackerman

The panel I used is approximately 8" x 10".  I divided the panel into 2 sections, one for the grass and one for the sky, then dry brushed on the paints.

Easter-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman
 
The Bunny Mini Wood Pallet Shape was painted pink and Nuvo drops were added to her ears for dimension.  She was then placed on the grass.  The Easter chipboard word title was painted purple and glued above the bunny.  A strip of Rinea Foiled Paper in Emerald was torn and placed across the panel, then the bunny was added on top.
 
Easter-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman
 
Using a small oval die, I die cut assorted papers to create Easter eggs.  They were placed around the panel and Nuvo Drops were added to several eggs for dimension.
 
Easter-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman
 
I used a Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the panel and added ribbon for hanging.

DIY Spring Wood Pallet Sign

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring-helengullett

Hello everyone! Helen is here today. March is here and that means Spring is coming, too! It is time for a new home decor. 

I made this new Spring Wood Pallet Sign using the new Wagon Large Chipboard Embellishment and Rectangle 12x10 Medium DIY Pallet Shape.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring1-helengullett

To decorate the Rectangle 12x10 Medium DIY Pallet Shape, I measured the size of each pallet and then I trimmed a 12x12 scrapbook paper with paper trimmer into paper strips. Or you also can simply trace the wood pallet on top of the 12x12 scrapbook paper and cut with scissors.

I added each paper strip on the wood pallet with Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue. If you don’t have this glue, make sure you use permament strong adhesive glue that works on wood surface.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring2-helengullett

Next step is decorating the Wagon Large Chipboard Embellishment. I used heat embossing technique on this chipboard embellishment. It is easy and give some texture on the wagon, it looks like a painted wood wagon.

I applied the VersaMark ink all over the wagon chipboard surface.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring3-helengullett

And then, I sprinkled the white opaque glitter embossing powder (I have a bottle that I mixed the white embossing powder and iridecent glitter embossing powder). I cover the whole surface.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring4-helengullett

And then, carefully I used my craft heater gun to heat set the embossing powder. Please, make sure your craft heater gun is warm enough to melt the powder, better pre-heat it for 15-30 seconds before. If not, you will blow some of the powder off when you go over the chipboard when it is still cool.

I did this embossing step three times to get the thickness that I wanted on the wagon and for the wheels I decided to use the black glitter embossing powder for the second and third layer.

When the embossing step is done, I adde the chipboard on top of the wood pallet with the Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue, and I held it down for a minute to make sure the glue dried well. I added a diecut flowers and leaves on the wagon to embellish it.

For the sentiment on the sign, I used cork letter stickers and I wrote the rest of the Bible verse with permanent marker brush.

I finished the wood sign with couple of those gold beaded butterflies that I added on the wood with the same adhesive glue. It is ready to be put on our mantle for Spring decor.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Make sure to come back tomorrow to see more inspirations from the design team. And... Check out more of the new products at Clear Scraps store that you will love to use for your projects!

Have wonderful day!


Clear Scraps Medium DIY Pallet -- Flannel Fun

Hi there everyone!  Laura with you today and even with

spring right around the corner (yes it's coming!) I'm

sharing a home decor project that would be great year

round, especially if you love cabin or woodsy decor,

or love that buffalo plaid themed home decor look

look that is so popular right now!  It's sure one of my

favorite looks, how about you?

Clear_Scraps_ DIY Pallet_Flannel Fun_LCDec 2019(1)

How cute is this little sign?!!  It started with the Clear Scraps

Medium DIY Pallet, these little square pallets are so great for

any home decor project!  Paint 'em, ink 'em, paper 'em!  Any

theme you want for seasonal decor, or add photos to display

a favorite memory.  Sometimes I keep it simple, and so this

is just painted up with brown acrylic paint on the top and

bottom boards.  The center board is covered with a piece

of patterned paper that goes with the outdoorsy theme.

Love the new Vintage Truck LG chipboard embellishment,

which is one of many chipboard shapes available in the

Clear Scraps store!  Want to see all the others available

just waiting for your creativity?  You can find them all HERE

Clear_Scraps_ DIY Pallet_Flannel Fun close up 1

The truck has been painted with red, black and brown acrylic

paint, and then I went around the edges with black ink to

make it look a little more vintage/aged.  I added a bunch of

 cute cabin and outdoor themed stickers.  They are layered,

using foam tape, at the back of the truck. At the top,

the word Howdy is also new from Clear Scraps! 

Clear_Scraps_ DIY Pallet_Flannel Fun close up 2

It's just painted with black acrylic paint which matches the

buffalo plaid theme perfectly!  The little "channel the

flannel" tag with a twine bow adds a little of that plaid

flair and color at the top of the project.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

 

Supplies Used:

Howdy LG chipboard embellishment,

Vintage Truck LG chipboard embellishment.

Mini Mason Jar Shaker

Hi everyone!

Welcome to this weeks project!

This week I have created this lovely Mini Mason Jar Shaker.

CSCSHmasonjar-2

I love these min shakers!

This was super easy and simple to do!

I just layered each of the pieces together with wet glue.  I added

some pattern paper to the bottome piece and the top piece.  before adding the

bottom I sprinkled in my shaker mix.

Watermarked-20200212_094726

To give it some dimension I inked the edges with disress ink.

To finish it off I added a flower spray to the top left corner.

I can add this to a card, box or even add some

magnets to the back, which is what I will do and add it to my collection

of shakers hanging on my door!

I just love the soft colors I used on this and the sparkle also!!

Thanks for stopping!

Clear Scraps Desktop Frames -- Our Family

Hey there all!  Laura here today, and I've got

another project created with one of my very

favorite new products in the Clear Scraps line!

Clear_Scraps_Family Frame_Our Family(1)

These new Desktop Frames are adorable!  They

come in several choices, so you can create a project

that can just be a nice decor project without a picture,

or you can add your favorite photos for a personal

touch!  This Family Desktop Frame was perfect to

showcase a photo from one of our vacations.

Love how easy this one is to create too, less is

really more on these frames, because the word

at the top acts like an embellishment and title all

in one!  To create this frame, I started with paint.

Clear_Scraps_Family Desktop Frame_Our Family_close up _2

I painted the word family in gray, and the frame part

in green.  After it was dry I brushed the edges with

black ink to make the frame a true focal point, since

I was going to add a picture that I wanted as the center

of attention!  The blank space under the word family,

I measured and cut a piece of family themed patterned

paper to act as a background for my photo.

Clear_Scraps_Family Desktop Frame_Our Family_close up _1

You can see it peeking out from behind the photo.

I matted the photo and added the "our family"

title with a fun sticker behind to highlight my

title.  This frame project also shows you that

you do not have to use a full 4x6 photo if you

don't want to.  This smaller photo works great,

and it gives you a little more visual interest to

add the matching themed patterned paper

behind the photo.

The base of the frame is also painted.  I like to

use the contrasting colors (the gray and green)

rather than leaving it all one color.  I'm all

about mixing it up! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stop back soon for more inspiration!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  Family Desktop Frame

Other:  Carta Bella Our Family paper and stickers,

acrylic paint (green and gray), black soot ink,

adhesive.

New Shaker Camera

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here using on the new Clear Scraps shaker products


The camera comes with 3 chipboard elements and one acrylic sheet to create the shaker effect.  I painted the outer pieces with blue paint.  Then I rubbed distress ink over them giving them an aged effect.

 
I die cut a panel of flip flops to fit the center window and glued it in place.
 
 
To complete, I placed the acrylic panel next then added beads in the cavities.  Once I had the number of beads in each cavity, I glued the back panel in place and placed a stack of books on top to ensure the pieces were fully glued together.  I threaded a strip of ribbon through the slot, tying it in place.  Finally, I used Nuvo Drops to add decorative elements around the camera face.
 
 
Isn't it sweet?
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
 
Other Supplies:  Plaid Paint, Ranger Distress Ink, pattern paper, beads, ribbon
 

 


"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 :)


LOVE Pallet Sign

Happy hearts Day Clear Scraps fam! I love hearts and being able to create with the new small WOOD heart frame, 10 x 12 rectangle pallet, and LOVE chipboard embellishment had me thinking this was perfect for displaying the love of family.

Small_LoveChip_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I started off by painting the rectangle pallet and chipboard heart frames white. Once dry I inked around the edges giving them a pop of color.

I cut strips of pattern paper (top & bottom) 2.5" x 11.5" (middle) 3.5" x 11.5" and adhered them to the pallet shape.

Small_LoveChip4_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I used the frame base at the top of the sign to house flowers.

Small_LoveChip2_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I then used the heart frame itself to hold my family photo and adhered to the bottom right corner. Doing this created a nice diagonal visual line for the eye to follow.

Small_LoveChip3_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I then added more floral embellishments along the rows and added a hanging element to the backside of the pallet.

Small_LoveChip_HeartFrame_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I hope your day is filled with bushels of love today.
