Batty Boo

Happy Saturday everyone!!

Today I am sharing my Batty Boo!!

Watermarked-20191011_184417

I have used the Mini Bat Wood Pallet.  I love these mini pallets.

You can use them for just about anything from ornaments to magnets.

CSWObat-2

I first painted my bat with black acrylic paint.

I added some wood letters from my stash that I painted with off white acrylic paint.

I inked the letters with some walnut stain distress ink.

I then accented them with glossy accents, just to give them a little shine.

Watermarked-20191011_184423

To finish it off I used a white gel pen to give the bat just a little definition.

This will look great on my fridge or even hanging in my craftroom!!

Run on over to Clear Scraps Store and grab some before they are gone!!

Thanks for stopping!

Clear Scraps Printer's Tray -- Something Wicked

Happy October everyone!  Laura here to share a project during my

favorite time to craft!  Love everything Halloween, especially when

it comes to making fun home decor projects!  And I've got a fun one

today using the Clear Scraps Small Rectangles Printer Tray Frame!

Clear_Scraps_Printers_Tray_Frames_Chipboard_Something Wicked

The Clear Scraps printer trays are awesome to use when you want to create

 home decor, or a try a different way to keep favorite memories.  This tray

would be an adorable way to remember a favorite Halloween party, or

favorite costumes, just replace one of the decorated spots with a picture.

It's just painted up with some green acrylic paint, and it's ready to go!

You can find all different shapes of printer trays HERE in the store.

To give this project some great depth, the adorable Clear Scraps

chipboard pieces were perfect!  The little ghost trio is so cute!

Clear_Scraps_Printers_Tray_Frame_Chipboard_Something Wicked_close up 1

They are painted with white acrylic paint, and then brushed

around the edges with some gray paint and a sponge brush.

Then 2 are glued to the paper on the tray, and one is glued on

top of the tray after the entire thing is assembled.  A few stickers

add some cute little spooky accents.  The Ornate Hinge is another

Clear Scraps chipboard set and easy to make them look like aged

iron with just acrylic paint!  Black is the base, then gray and brown

sponged on to finish the look.  Halloween creepy fun!

And more great chipboard elements fill more of the squares,

Clear_Scraps_Printer_Tray_Frame_Chipboard_Something Wicked_close up 2

The Spooky Chipboard Word Title was painted with black acrylic paint,

the top brushed with Versamark ink, and then it was sprinkled with distress

embossing powder.  A perfect spooky look!  The fence in the bottom right

corner is Halloween perfect piece, and it's as simple as some black and

gray acrylic paint sponged on to create the look of an old weathered fence.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stop back soon for more inspiration!

Pumpkin Mini Pallet Acrylic Book

Hello friends! Jennifer here to share a Halloween mini album I  created using the 6x6 Acrylic Tab Album.  The focal point of my front cover is the new Pumpkin Wood Mini Pallet Shape! Halloween is probably my favorite holiday so I  decided to make a "13 Days of October" book....much like a Daily December! 

Clear_Scraps_Pumpkin_Mini_Pallet

For my Pumpkin Wood Mini Pallet Shape, I  began by painting with chalk paint in black.  Once dry, I  added a couple heavy layers of chunky glitter gold paint over the top. I  love the effect and it brought a lot of shine to the pallet!  I  then added some stickers from the collection I  used to accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Pumpkin_Mini_Pallet2

For each acrylic page, I  colored the outside edges with alcohol ink in orange.  Alcohol ink is the fastest and easiest way to add color to your acrylic! The ink dries quickly and does not smudge; anything solvent based will work!  

Clear_Scraps_Pumpkin_Mini_Pallet3

I  cut my background papers to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches to fit the pages as well as to allow the alcohol ink to show.  I  also inserted extra pages such as this kraft envelope I  had in my stash. 

Clear_Scraps_Pumpkin_Mini_Pallet4

Clear_Scraps_Pumpkin_Mini_Pallet5

Here, I  folded down a glassine bag to use as another extra page.

Clear_Scraps_Pumpkin_Mini_Pallet6

I  also love to utilize my 12x12 Acrylic Sheets to add in pages!  I  trimmed a sheet down to 4x5 1/2 inches and colored with black alcohol ink.

Promises Shaker Album

IMG_4114wmGreetings, I am excited to share this adorable accordion album I created.  I admit that this is my first "shaker" album!   So  much yummy-ness in this album! 

The album features Clear Scraps Geo Pattern Wood Accordion Album .  I added a dragonfly from the Dragonflies Chipbaord Embellishments on the front of the album.  I even used the cut way piece that hold the dragonflies to the chipboard as a frame!

I have included pictures of the finished album below.

Hello Fall Acrylic Scallop Album

Hello and happy October! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share a mini book I created with the Acrylic 3x8 Scallop Album.  I  love this time of year and love taking photos of my kids at a local pumpkin farm. The Acrylic Scallop Album is perfect for wallet sized photos to document favorite fall memories!  

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_Scallop_Album

As my focal point of the front cover, I  used the new Embroidery Hoops Chipboard Embellishments! I painted the top hoop and adhered the two together.  I  then added a sticker in the center with pop dots and finished with bakers twine.  You will also notice the edges of the acrylic pages are painted; I  used the same paint that I  painted the Embroidery Hoops.  

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_Scallop_Album2

On the inside of the front cover, I  used a tag that I  trimmed along with sticker and washi tape accents.  

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_Scallop_Album3

The height of the album is only 3 inches so I  choose to use wallet sized photos.  Since we haven't taken our annual fall photos, I  used white cardstock in place of the pictures (I  plan to add them later).

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_Scallop_Album4

I  love adding tags under my photos allowing them to "stick out" from the edge of the album.  Again, I  tied some orange and white bakers twine to accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_Scallop_Album5

Using coordinating smaller embellishments such as chipboard or stickers is a great way to add layers to your pages!  I  also love to layer an extra pattern under my photos.  

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_Scallop_Album6

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_Scallop_Album7

Clear_Scraps_Acrylic_Scallop_Album8

As the pages get bigger, you can use larger photos. Or do as I  did and add two photo slots where able.

Clear Scraps Jumbo Wood Tags -- Happy To Be Haunting

Hey there everyone!  Who's excited for fall?  Do you love fall crafting?

Laura here, and I've got to say, fall is my favorite time for crafting!

I'm here today to share a fun home decor project for Halloween!

It was created using the new Clear Scraps Jumbo Wood Tags.

Clear_Scraps_Jumbo Wood Tags_DIY pallet_Happy to be Haunting

This project uses the scallop wood tag.  Love that little extra detail

at the top!  It's like all the wonderful wood items from Clear Scraps,

limited only by your imagination!  This one I painted with orange

acrylic paint, then brushed the edges of the tag with black acrylic paint.

After this dried, I used the new Clear Scraps 4x6 Oct 31st stencil.

Clear_Scraps_Jumbo Wood Tags_DIY pallet_Happy to be Hanting_close up 2

You can use washi tape to hold the stencil in place, and then

sponge on your paint.  The black acrylic really pops against the

orange paint on the tag, and fits perfectly on the tag right below

the little ghost pallet shape!  How cute is that little ghostie?!!

She's new from Clear Scraps too, of course!

Clear_Scraps_Jumbo Wood Tags_DIY Pallet_Happy to be Haunting_close up 1

It's the Ghost Medium DIY Pallet Shape from Clear Scraps!

Just painted up with white acrylic paint, and then added a

cute face.  I'm not the best at hand painting.....so I just found

a printable on the computer, cut it out, glued it on, and done!

I added a few stickers and scraps of paper, journal boxes, etc, to

add pops of color and texture, using some foam tape to pop up.

To finish it off I added a bunch of Halloween ribbons, some tulle,

and the nice heavy duty cord....that one actually comes with the tag!

Make sure to check out the Clear Scraps store to find a bunch of

these great DIY Pallets in all sorts of shapes to get your creative

juices flowing and give you ideas for all your home decor projects!

Clear Scraps Edison Light Bulb Chip -- Bright Ideas Notebook

Hi there everyone!  Laura joining you today, with a fun project for back to school!

You see a lot of cute projects online for teachers, and younger students, so I

thought I'd share and idea for a project for an older student.  Part of the

fun could be creating this project together, or you could make it and give

as a gift....it would make a great gift for a high school or college student!

Clear_Scraps_Edison Light Bulb Chip_

One of the things I love to do is take a basic boring composition notebook,

and make it into something special.  This one could be used as a fun

notebook for note taking, or it could be used for ideas, dreams, a daily

journal, so many options!  And it's much more interesting than the

plain old composition notebook....who wouldn't be inspired by that?!

To create it is simple too!  Take the notebook, and cut paper to fit,

and glue to the front cover.  I did use a corner rounder on the right side,

but you could easily trim it to fit as well.  To add a little extra something,

I sprinkled some distress spray stain on it. 

Clear_Scraps_Edison Light Bulb Chip_close up 2

To do this, place on a protected surface (cover your work surface with

newspaper, or take it outside on the lawn!) then ake out the sprayer, and

tap the plastic tubing over your project to get the splatter effect.  You

can also use a toothbrush, but I like the control of this method better.

When that was dry, I went back and added some stencil images,

using gray paint and the Clear Scraps 6" spiral stencil.

Clear_Scraps_Edison Light Bulb Chip_cloe up 3

The awesome chip Edison light bulbs, are the Clear Scraps

Edison Light Bulbs Chipboard Embellishments.

They are painted black, then I tapped on some orange paint,

then a little more black over that to give it a rusted look.

Then I used some random letter I had to put on my title.

Now all that's left is to decide who to gift this to!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

 

Supplies Used: 

Clear Scraps:  Edison Light Bulbs Chipboard Embellishments,

6" Spiral Stencil.

Autumn Thank You Card

Autumn Thank You Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Hi everyone!  It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a tutorial to make this bright autumn thank you card using chipboard embellishments and stencils from the Clear Scraps shop.  What I love most about stencils is their versatility...and sometimes you can find some pretty unique uses for them!

Autumn Thank You Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Painting Trees

I started by painting the Oak Trees Chipboard Embellishments with yellow, orange, red, and brown acrylic paints.  Rather than paint too much detail onto these pieces, I simply pounced a small flat paint brush full of paint over the shape with different colors until I was satisfied with the results.

Autumn Thank You Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Inking Background

Next I applied three blue shades of Distress Oxide inks over a 5" x 7" panel of white cardstock with a foam ink blending tool until I had a smooth ombre effect as shown.  

Autumn Thank You Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Stenciling Clouds

I wanted to create wispy cloud shapes but didn't have a stencil with the right look...until I realized that the 6" Pine Trees stencil looked just like wispy clouds when I turned it on its side!  I dabbed a damp baby wipe through two of the tree shapes onto the inked background panel to create faint white cloud images in the sky.

Autumn Thank You Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Diecut Hill

The hillside was die cut from some green cardstock with a wavy border die.  I added speckles of orange and yellow paint to the die-cut under where I knew I would be placing my trees to give the ground a beginning-of-autumn feel.

Autumn Thank You Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Sentiment
The last detail was a small flag of white cardstock that I stamped a thank you sentiment on using orange ink.

Autumn Thank You Card by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Detail

To assemble the card, I adhered the inky background to a 5" x 7" white card base using tape runner and popped the sentiment and grassy hillside up on top using foam adhesive.  The trees were then tucked into the hillside and adhered with liquid glue.

I hope you enjoyed this bright autumn thank you card project and thanks so much for stopping by today.  There are tons of stencils to choose from in the Clear Scraps shop...what are some unique ways that you've used yours?

Additional products used: white and green cardstock; yellow, orange, red, and brown acrylic paints; Distress Oxide inks; wavy border die; sentiment stamp; orange ink; adhesive; baby wipes


Beach Time vacation layout

Hello, friends! Leah here with you today sharing another layout this month. My daughter recently went to the beach so I have a lot of fun photos to play with! These two are my favorites from her trip, and I knew Clear Scraps products would be the perfect way to show them off.

Beachtime_LeahCrowe

On this layout I have used:
Clear Scraps 12x12 Acrylic Sheet
Clear Scraps 6" Bubbles Stencil
Clear Scraps Coral Chipboard Embellishment
and I didn't have this stencil in my stash, but wish I had - Clear Scraps 4x6 Sunrise Stencil (I used my electronic cutter to create mine, it came out ok)

I started by using white cardstock, gesso, and spray inks to create my background. I adhered that to the 12x12 acrylic sheet, then masked the 6" Bubbles onto the background using course gel texture.

Howtobeach_LeahCrowe
Howtobeach_LeahCrowe

The texture is divine! I covered it up a little more than I had planned, whoops.

I then used my makeshift sunray stencil and applied that to the layout.

Howtobeach3_LeahCrowe
Once that dried I added my large title I cut using my Silhouette.

Beachtime4_LeahCrowe
I then added the Chipboard Coral and my photos.

XL Wood Wagon

Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today sharing one of the new Clear Scraps releases!  I  used the XL Wood Wagon as a fun fall home decor project and I'm going to show you my techniques! 

Clear_Scraps_XL_Wood_Wagon

I  began by painting the body of the wagon with white acrylic paint. I  left the wheels bare for now as I   planned to paint them later. 

Clear_Scraps_XL_Wood_Wagon2

Once my acrylic paint was dry, I  applied crackle paint to the surface.  This step takes a bit longer to dry and you don't notice that its actually working until the next step.  

Clear_Scraps_XL_Wood_Wagon3

After ensuring my crackled paint was dry, I  applied brown acrylic paint to the surface.  As your second color begins to dry, this is when you can see the crackle effect.  Here is a close up shot of my wagon.  You can also see I  painted my wheels with black acrylic paint. I  simply used a bit of washi tape to partition off the wheels so that my black paint did not bleed onto the rest of my project. 

Clear_Scraps_XL_Wood_Wagon4

Here, I  used the Gather XL Script Wood Word which I  painted with cream acrylic paint. I  usually adhere my pieces with Beacon 3-in-1 but this time I  used my hot glue gun to ensure a good hold. 

Clear_Scraps_XL_Wood_Wagon6

I  had purchased a couple bouquets of fall flowers at a local craft store. I  trimmed the stems and adhered the flowers with my hot glue gun. I  also added some fun fall ribbon to accent. 

Clear_Scraps_XL_Wood_Wagon8

Last, I   adhered twine to the back of the wagon in order to hang my creation! It looks great on my front door...just in time for fall!  

Thank you for stopping by the blog today! You can see all of the new Clear Scraps releases by going HERE! Have a great day!

Shabby Chic Lamp Post Embellishments

Hi everyone!

Thanks for joining me for this project.

I love creating embellishments that I can use on various projects.

I love chipboard embellishments the most.

They are sturdy and can be used on just about anything from cards to layouts to altered items.

Today I have taken the Lamp Post Chipboard embellishments and decorated them up.

Watermarked-20190810_090110

I love shabby chic so I gave these embellishments the shabby treatment.

I painted them with some chocolate bar acrylic paint first.

Once that was dried I painted on some crackle medium, letting that dry before

adding my ivory paint.  I got a very nice crackle effect.

I took some distress ink to make the cracks pop even more.


Watermarked-20190810_090110

Once everything was dried really well, I added some string pearls, blue seam binding, 

and some very small blue flowers.

I added some glossy accents to which would be the globes of the lamp posts.

Watermarked-20190810_090110

These came out awesome!

Now I have some great shabby chic embellishments for my next project!

I hope you try this out and build your embellishment stash!!

Thanks, Kim :)


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!

Clear_Scraps_Our Happy Place XL Word Quote_close up 3

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!

Stop back soon for more inspiration using more of the amazing

goodies that Clear Scraps carries!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps: 

Our Happy Place XL Wood Quote, 12x12 Acrylic Sheet,

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 5

Clear_Scraps_Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album_page 6

Clear_Scraps_Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album_page 7

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!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps: Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album, It's a Boy Chipboard Word Titles.

Other:  Echo Park Bundle of Joy paper, stickers.  Enamel dots, ribbon, adhesive,

acrylic paint, distress ink.


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
