we are all getting a lot of lately!  Hopefully a good thing!!

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_Jar of Togetherness

Clear Scraps has so many cute wooden pallet pieces!

I'm in love with all of them, and they lend themselves

to any creative project you might be thinking up!

I'm a fan of the country/farmhouse decor look, so this

adorable Mason Jar Medium DIY Pallet is just perfect!

Looking for something different?  Check out all the

many choices available in the store right HERE.

Did you know Clear Scraps has an extensive collection

of stencils?  There are so many options, this stencil,

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_Jar of Togetherness_close up 2

the 6" Zinnia stencil, is brand new!  It's so pretty, and

easy to use too!  I painted the wood pallet with white

and gray acrylic paint, then after it dried, I taped down

the stencil and used a sponge brush to apply the green,

blue and yellow paint to the different areas of the stencil.

It looks light, fresh and simple, just the look I wanted!

For the top of the jar, I brushed on black distress ink,

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_Jar of Togetherness_close up 1

it's right on top of the gray paint.  It gives it that

farmhouse antique jar look to top it off just right.

The word together is a Clear Scraps Chipboard

Word Title.  This is another item with a ton of

options!  So many words available in the store,

want the word Blessed?  Love?  Laugh?  Family?

Those and so many more to discover!  Check them

all out HERE.  These work great on your scrapbook

pages too, not just for home decor projects! 

The finishing touch was a bit of twine tied around

the top of the jar.  This is a super quick and easy

project, but a lot of fun!  Great to give as a gift too!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stop back soon for

more inspiration!

Cupcake Medium DIY Pallet Shape

Hello everyone! It's Jennifer here today to share a fun little home decor project I  created using one of the Medium DIY Pallet Shapes. These are the perfect size for gifts or to display a favorite photo as I  did. I'm going to show you how I  decorated the Cupcake Medium DIY Pallet Shape and Smile Mini Shaker Shape.  


I  started by measuring each slat of the pallet so I  would know how big to cut the strips of patterned paper.  I  adhered each with my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and then trimmed excess paper with my x-acto knife and healing mat. I  then used a sanding tool to smooth any edges.  I  also covered the chipboard base of the Smile Mini Shaker with patterned paper and repeated the same steps. 


I  painted the top chipboard frame and the edges of the middle two frames of the shaker with Distress Paint in speckled egg.  I  set aside to dry to begin to assemble my shaker. 


You can see here I  adhered the shaker at the bottom of my photo allowing it to hang off the pallet.  I  added some tiny colored sequin shapes to each letter before adhering the acrylic piece.  


I  wanted my shaker to be the focal point of the pallet so I  added a few die cuts and stickers from the collection I   used.  You can also spy a few enamel dots to accent. 


I  used the same blue paint to line the edges of the pallet as well to give it a finished look. 


Thank you for reading! Hope this inspires you to do some creating with one of the Clear Scraps DIY Pallet Shapes! Have a great day!

Start your 4th of July with a BANG!


Tami here today to share a project to kick off your 4th of July holiday with a BANG!

I made this decor piece to display for the holiday. Although it will just be a few family members coming over; these days that’s enough to qualify as a PARTY! And what’s a party without some decorations?


I used several different products from Clear Scraps on this project...


I started with the Scallop Jumbo Wood Tag as the base, then rounded up 6 X 6 Fireworks Splash Stencil, Lower Case ABC Stencils, Stars Chipboard Embellishment and 2 PC Wood Stars

I then grabbed some white paint, pigment ink, embossing powder, washi tape, glue and a few tools and I was set!

Here is a short video that shows you how to make this project yourself...

i hope all of you have a very happy 4th of July and stay SAFE!

You & Me Wood Desktop Frame

Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share one of the new Wood Desktop Frames! If you haven't had a chance to play with one of these yet, you must! They are a lot of fun to assemble and make for a unique home decor piece!  Even better as a gift!  Today, I  am featuring the You & Me Wood Desktop Frame which has a cute cut out heart frame perfect for a favorite photo!


I  began by painting the word frame as well as the large base oval in black acrylic paint. I  usually opt for chalk paint but acrylic works just as well.  


While waiting for my paint to dry, I  used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to affix patterned paper to the small base oval and heart frame.  I  cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife to trim the edges. I  then used my sanding tool to smooth any rough pieces. I  also did apply a thin coat of acrylic black paint to the edges of each piece to give it a finished look. 


Next, using the 4x6 Butterfly Flock Stencil, I  lightly daubed StazOn Opaque to the front of the word frame.  


Here, you can see the end result of my technique.  Also, you can see I  adhered an additional pattern behind the "O" in the You to give extra dimension. 


Again using my Beacon Adhesive, I  adhered my heart frame as well as my photo.  I  then added some embellishments from the collection I  used to accent.


Next, I  assembled my base by lining up the openings on each oval.  I  applied adhesive to the slots on the word frame and inserted into the base. A minute is all it takes for your adhesive to be set.


Using two of my hand punches, I  added these butterflies from different patterned papers and adhered the front of my word frame. I  had some pearl accents in my stash that I  also used in the center of each butterfly. 


Thank you for reading today! Hope this inspires you to do some crafting with one of Clear Scraps' home decor products! Have a great day!

Clear Scraps Medium DIY Pallet -- You are My Anchor

Hi there everyone!  Laura here with you today to share

a fun project using one of the Clear Scraps wooden

pallets, and one of the new mini shakers!

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_You are My Anchor(1)

I love all things beach, and sea life, and I decorate with items like

this every summer!  It's even better when you can make your own

home decor to match your personal taste, colors, etc.  And this

is just one idea for the Square Medium DIY Pallet Shape from

Clear Scraps.  These shapes are fun to work with, and you can

choose a heart shape, a circle, a house, and so much more!  There

are even some great seasonal shapes to play with too!  You can

find all of them in the Clear Scraps store right HERE.   This one

I cut paper strips to cover, inked the edges with Distress Ink, and

then glued them down onto the slats.  You could also paint, or stain,

or?  These pallets have great versatility that you can get creative with!

The other Clear Scraps item on this project is the Anchor Mini Shaker.

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_You are My Anchor_close up 1

I've said it before, I LOVE these shakers!  They add so much

to any project, whether it's a LO, a card, a home decor project,

or anything!  So easy to use too, this one was just painted with

blue acrylic paint, added a few beads and sequins, and then

glue the layers together with a favorite adhesive, it's that easy!

I added a couple of pretty medallions cut out of patterned paper,

and some enamel dots for a little "bling" for a cute addition.

The top of the pallet has a little sticker tag and bit of twine.

Life is Good Pallet by Steph

HI everyone, Steph here with a Summer themed Pallet.


Using the Circle Medium DIY Pallet, I painted each slat representing a beach theme.


Placing glue along the bottom edge, I added mini art stones representing sand.


Using the Life is Good Chipboard word title, I painted it with red paint and spritzed with a pearl spray ink. 


I also painted the Beach Chair chipboard embellishment with brown ink and the umbrella with beige ink.   I used glue to create veins on the umbrella and sprinkled on gold glitter.  All the chipboard embellishments were adhered to the pallet.


To finish, I created shells from Makin's Clay, painted them with gold ink and adhered them to the panel.

Thanks for stopping by.


Other Supplies:  Prima Paint, Makin's Clay, Imagine Crafts Ink


Home Decor with Large Chipboard Embellishments

Hello friends and happy Friday! Hope this finds you well! Jennifer here to share a project I  created with some of the new Large Chipboard Embellishments that were debuted this past January.  For my base, I  used the 12x10 Rectangle Medium DIY Pallet Shape that I covered with chalk paint in grey.  Chalk paint works wonderfully on the birch wood as it dries quickly and you do not need to prime the wood. 


We are teaming up with TapeRunner this month and I  used my adhesive to adhere different patterned papers to the Hello Large Chipboard Embellishment.  I  cut away excess paper with scissors as well as used an x-acto knife and sanding tool to smooth my edges.  I  also added a thin coat of chalk paint in cream to the edges of each letter to help them stand out. 


I  also used the same color chalk paint on the Vintage Truck Large Chipboard Embellishment.  Once dry, I  applied a light coat of crackle effect to the surface and allowed ample time for it to set.  I  then went over the surface with more chalk paint this time being in pink!  


Here, you can see a close up shot of the finished effect! 


Showing the Large Chipboard letters adhered to my pallet! You can see that adding the paint to the edges of the letters helps them stand out even more. 


Using two cut files from my Silhouette, I  adhered these rolled flowers and leaves to the bed of the truck.  From my stash, I  added buttons and enamel dots to the center of each flower.


Thank you for stopping by the blog today! I  hope this inspires you to create some of your own DIY home decor with Clear Scraps!  Have a great day!

Additional products used:  patterned paper: Crate Paper; paint: Folk Art; crackle effect: Martha Stewart; adhesive: TapeRunner, Beacon; die cut machine:  Silhouette: cut files: "Rolled Flower" by Paige Evans #237217, "Leaves" by Carta Bella #213592; enamel dots:  Simple Stories; misc: x-acto knife, sanding tool, buttons. 


Hearts Phone Stand by Steph

Hi everyone, Steph here using the Hearts Wood Phone Stand.   This month we are partnering with Tape Runner.


Clear Scraps has a variety of phone stands in the store that are really fun to work with.  Whether you like creating with acrylic or wood, there are lots of designs to choose from.


I painted the phone stand with 2 shades of blue paint.  Then I spritzed it with gold spray ink to add a little pizzazz.


Using the Tape Runner, our partner this month, I adhered a panel of pattern paper behind the hearts.  


Decorate the phone stand with gem stones surrounding the hearts and a flower in the corner.


Place your phone on the stand so you always know where it is!!!

I always seem to lose my phone so this pretty phone stand keeps my phone exactly where it should be.

Thanks for stopping by.

Camper Mini Shaker Pallet

Hello and happy Monday! It's Jennifer here and I'm sharing another project for our cross promo with TapeRunner!  I   created this easy to make home decor project using the Deco Medium DIY Pallet Shape and Camper Mini Shaker Shape!  I  began by painting my pallet with acrylic paint in dark brown then sanding the edges to give a distressed look. 



I  assembled my Camper Mini Shaker Shape using patterned paper on the base and top frame chipboards. Each piece I  used sand paper to trim away excess paper. From my stash, I  selected coordinating sequins to place in the center of the shaker.  I  then added a thin coat of acrylic paint to the edges of the chipboard to give a finished look.  


I  then used my TapeRunner to add die cuts and stickers around my shaker to accent.  Using a cut file from the Silhouette shop, I  cut my title from patterned paper and adhered with my TapeRunner adhesive.  


To hang my project, I  tied some chevron black/white ribbon to the back of my pallet and secured with double sided tape.  


Thanks for stopping by the blog today! You can see all of the Mini Shaker Shapes by clicking HERE! Have a great day!

Friends Desktop Wood Frame

Hello! It's Jennifer and I'm back to share another great Clear Scraps product!  The new Desktop Wood Frames have been a huge hit and they make for wonderful gifts!  Today, I'm sharing the Friends Desktop Wood Frame which I  will share some techniques I  used.  


I  began by coloring the word frame and larger base piece with Inka-Gold in Pewter. It is helpful to apply in a circular motion with a foam applicator after spritzing the surface of the ink with water.  Also, the more you apply the ink the shinier your end result will be.


I  set those pieces aside and used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to cover my frame and small base piece with patterned paper.  I  cut away any excess paper with scissors as well as used an x-acto knife and healing mat.  I  then used a sanding tool to smooth the edges as well as added Inka-Gold to the edges of the wood pieces. 


Here is a close up of the end effect of the inking! I  love the way it looks...you can also use Inka-Gold on our chipboard!  


To assemble my project, I  affixed the cut out frame to my photo and then trimmed as needed.  The cut out can be attached to the word frame.  I    then adhered the two base pieces together followed by inserting the frame into the slots.  For all, I  again used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.  


Last, I    added some paper flowers and embellishments from the collection I  used to accent.  


Thank you for stopping by the blog today! You can see all the Desktop Frames by going HERE! Have a great day!

Additional products used:  patterned paper, die cuts, stickers, flair: Cocoa Vanilla Studio; adhesive: Beacon, Thermoweb; paper flowers: Mon Ami Gabi; Inka-Gold: Viva Decor; foam applicator: Ranger. 


Family Picture Board

Hello everyone... Helen is here today. I would like to share with you a fun home decor project. I made this Family Picture Board using the one of the new Clear Scraps Wooden Puzzles and Mini Shaker Family.


I started with tracing each puzzle piece on each scrapbook paper with pencil. After that, I cut each of the scrapbook paper with scissors.

I added the cut out paper on top of each puzzle piece using the permanent adhesive glue. And then, I used wood glue to put together the puzzle and let it sit to dry.


While waiting for the puzzle to dry, I put together the Mini Shaker Family. I stacked each layer of the chipboard piece with permanent adhesive glue. I put a heavy book on top of it while the glue was drying.

I removed the clear plastic covers from both sides of the acetate plastic and then I glued it on the other chipboard piece.

Before I added the top layer, I added some beads inside it as the shaker filler. And then I added the top layer with permanent adhesive glue. I put the heavy book again on top of it while the glue was drying.


When the house puzzle pieces were glued well, I added the finished Mini Shaker Family on the middle top part of the puzzle board with permanent adhesive glue as the title of this picture board.


I added the thick burlap twine on top of the puzzle board and secure it with permanent glue adhesive. After that, I added the mini clothes pins on the burlap twine. I simply clipped them, no glue. But if you would like to keep them in place, you can use either strong permanent glue adhesive or wood glue to secure the in place.

I hope this project give you another inspiration to make fun home decor with Clear Scraps.

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have wonderful day!

Welcome Wagon Wood Pallet


Tami here today, thanks for stopping by to see what new project the design team has for you!

I wanted a home decor piece to put by my front door to welcome friends and family. I knew I wanted to use one of Clear Scraps Wood Pallets, and to incorporate one of the XL Script Words. I picked out the Medium Square Pallet and the XL Script Welcome Word seemed fitting. But I needed something else to embellish the pallet with. While scrolling through the chipboard embellishments, I found the Large Chipboard Wagon. Perfect! A "welcome wagon" for my welcome pallet...


So once I had my parts picked out, it was time to put them all together. I chose colors that coordinated with my new paint and furnishings and got busy painting and embellishing, here's my finished piece...


I put together a short video showing how I made this project step-by-step...

This project would make a wonderful housewarming or wedding gift.

If you wanted to use it on an outside door, you could use wood or silk flowers. Be sure to give the finished project a coat of clear matte spray paint to protect it from the elements.


Clear Scraps: Medium Square Pallet, XL Script Welcome Word and Large Chipboard Wagon

Clear Scraps Wooden Stars--

Hi there everyone!  Laura here with you today, sharing

a project created to use for Memorial Day or the 4th of

July, or anytime you're feeling a little patriotic!!  It

would even be cute to leave out all summer!

Clear_Scraps_Wooden Star_Patriotic Truck

I'm such a fan of the cute antique truck look!  And this

truck is full of patriotic goodness!  It started with a

Wooden Star from Clear Scraps, that I traced onto a fun

red, white, and blue patterned paper, cut out, and glued

down on the wooden star.  The Wooden Star is a new item

that isn't quite in the store yet, but keep checking HERE.

Clear_Scraps_Wooden Star_Patriotic Truck_close up 1

The two smaller stars are a set of nested wooden stars.  I also

traced and cut out the smaller star.  The larger open star,

Clear_Scraps_Wooden Star_Patriotic Truck_ close up 2

was painted with acrylic paint in solid red to separate it

from the patterned papers just a bit.   These two smaller

stars are also something new coming soon, so make sure to

keep your eyes peeled and check in that same "What's New"

section in the Clear Scraps store often!  There are a lot of fun

goodies to check out right now too!  Chipboard, stencils, frames

and more!! The stars are layered up on the project with a paper

banner and chipboard truck from a sticker collection set.

Clear_Scraps_Wooden Star_Patriotic Truck_close up 4

I added more layers with the heart, flowers and flag to give

this project that fun patriotic vibe!  I always like those fun

little extra touches, so I added enamel dots to the flower

centers, and for a little extra pizzazz sprinkled around the

project.  It's a super simple project that make a cute home

decor piece to display!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you

enjoyed the inspiration, and you are ready to create

your own!  Stop back soon for more great ideas!

Coffee Clipboard Decoration


Hello everyone... Helen is here today. My project today is a fun decoration that I created inspired by things I love: Jesus and coffee.


I used the Clipboard Mini Deco which is a clear acrylic shaped clipboard. So, I pulled out some of my alcohol inks. But before I added the alcohol inks, I removed the plastic covers on both sides of the acrylic clipboard and the clip, too.

I blended the alcohol inks on top the clipboard with alcohol blender solution. After that I set a side to dry couple minute.


While some parts of the alcohol paint was still kindda wet and tacky, I added some foil sheets on the surface of the clipboard. I gently rubbed the foil on the surface with my finger to transfer the foil.


Next, I grabbed the 4x6 Coffee Stain Stencil and added some of the Memento Luxe Espresso Truffle ink on the clipboard surface using the make up wedge sponge. I set it aside to dry while I was working on the coffee mug chipboard.


I cut off the pieces of the Coffee Mug Chipboard Embellishment out of its frame. I painted the mug lid shape with white gesso. I did it two layers. You can also use white acrylic paint if you want. Any coloring medium is actually will work well on this chipboard surface.


I used craft heater to speed up the drying process of the white gesso. After that, I traced the coffee mug shape and the mug sleeve shape on top of the scrapbook paper and fussy cut them with scissors. I added the cut out scrapbook papers on top of each of the pieces using 3-in-1 Beacon Adhesive Glue.


I added some shadow around the mug pieces with Distress Ink Vintage Photo using the foam dauber. I added the coffee mug sleeve on top of the coffee mug with the same adhesive glue. I put couple acrylic stamping block to hold it down while the glue drying.


I printed out the sentiment quote from one of the digital stamp sets on a white cardstock with inkjet printer. And then, I cut it out using the Pierced Pennant Dies.

I added the finished coffee mug on top of the acrylic chipboard with 3-in-1 Beacon Adhesive Glue and I added the sentiment pennant 3D foam tape.


I tied up some of the wrinkle ribbons on the clip and I added it on the clipboard. It is done. I like how this mini decoration turned out. Now, I have a fun coffee decoration in my craft room.

I hope you all like this project and get an inspiration to create project using Clear Scraps products.

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have wonderful day!
