Halloween Shaker Layout

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Dana here! I have a Halloween scrapbook layout to share. Halloween is just around the corner so I wanted to create a layout that I could display all month.

Have you seen all the variety of shakers available from Clear Scraps! These shakers are high quality chipboard and so easy and fun to assemble. For this project I chose to use the Bat Mini Shaker. You can check them out Here

For the base of my scrapbook layout, I used one of the Clear Scraps XL Scallops , which I had left over from a previous project. But you can use any acrylic sheet from Clear Scraps. You can find them Here.

First off I mixed some orange and lime green glitter along with black glass glitter. Then took my acrylic sheet and applied craft glue along the scallop edges. Then sprinkled the glitters onto the glue. Shake off sny excess glitter. I did a small section at a time careful not to apply too much glue. Continue this process until finished. Set aside to dry. 

While you wait, take your bat shaker pieces apart. Paint the top piece of your shaker with black acrylic paint.

Then take your last piece of chipboard shape and trace onto your patterned paper. Cut out with an exacto knife and smooth any edges with your distress tool. Glue paper onto your chipboard shaker piece. 

20200922_154752

Now glue the next two chipboard layers one on top of the other. Then fill your shaker with confetti or anything you like. Then peel off the protective layer on your acrylic shape and glue down onto previous layer. Finish off by gluing the top painted layer in place. Do not shake until glue dries. After your shaker dries you can carefully add black  paint around your shaker edges. Let dry.

While drying you can work on your layout design. I chose a base paper, sentiments, a photo and stickers. I used glue dots to attach my scrapbook paper to my acrylic sheet. Added my embellishments. Used foam dots to the back of my sentiment to add dimension. Then glued my Bat shaker to my layout.

Clear Scraps Bat Swirl Stencil--Candy Cutie LO

Hello everyone!  Laura here with some inspiration for you today!

I've got a fun Halloween LO to share with you using the Clear Scraps

4x6 Bat Swirl Stencil to create a fun border.

Clear_Scraps_Bat Stencil_Candy Cutie LO
I love cute and simple don't you?  This one is just a few layers of different

patterned papers but to make a stand out piece that anchors everything,

the border was created on plain orange cardstock with the Bat Swirl stencil.

Clear_Scraps_Bat Stencil_Candy Cutie close up 1

I used a sponge applicator to apply a light pounce of black acrylic paint

to keep the look a little distressed for more of a spooky Halloween look. 

I positioned the stencil a few different ways as I moved it to make the

pattern look more random.  You can see the angle of the stencil in the

picture, it's not just straight up and down, tho you could do that too. 

Clear_Scraps_Bat Stencil_Candy Cutie LO close up 2

After I got the look I liked, I went back with the sponge applicator to

brush around the edges of the border to add a little more depth and

interest to the softer bats and swirls.  This frames it and makes that

part "pop" a bit more.  A few scattered stickers and enamel dots added

a nice finishing touch and tied it into the rest of the LO.

 

It's honestly so much fun to play with stencils like this!  Sometimes I just

take a scrap piece of paper and play.  You can try different looks with paint,

or an ink, or spray mist, or markers, or?  Get creative!  If you like the look,

you can save it to use later for a border or accent on a LO or home decor.

You can find all of the different stencils in the Clear Scraps store HERE

There are lots of them to choose from--so many ideas!

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Stop back soon for more inspiration!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps: 4x6 Bat Swirl Stencil

Other:  Orange cardstock, black acrylic paint, twine, enamel dots,

Doodlebug Candy Carnival paper and stickers.


Halloween Mini Shakers Layout

Hello and happy Saturday! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share a layout I  created using two of the new Mini Shaker Shapes! I  love Halloween and was excited to see the Boo and Spider Mini Shaker Shapes!  

Clear_Scraps_Boo_Mini_Shaker_layout

I  started with using black and orange Distress Spray Ink on a sheet of 12x12 white cardstock with the 12 Inch Spider Web Mascil.  You can use as much spray ink as you desire depending on what kind of end effect you want. 

   Clear_Scraps_Boo_Mini_Shaker_layout2

Here is a close up of the end result of my background! I love that there is a good mixture of both orange and black. 

Clear_Scraps_Boo_Mini_Shaker_layout4

I  set aside my cardstock to work on the two shakers. I  painted both chipboard bases and top frames with Color Shift paint in black which gives it a nice shiny look. 

Clear_Scraps_Boo_Mini_Shaker_layout5

Before adhering my Spider Mini Shaker Shape, I  used embroidery floss to create a line for the spider to "hang" on.  I  then used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to affix my Shaker to the layout. 

Clear_Scraps_Boo_Mini_Shaker_layout6

I  used the Boo Mini Shaker Shape as the title of my page. You can see I  added patterned paper to the base of the word followed by adding in a mix of sequin shapes. 

Clear_Scraps_Boo_Mini_Shaker_layout7

I  then added in a 3x4 journaling card as well as stickers to accent.  

Clear_Scraps_Boo_Mini_Shaker_layout8

I  cut strips of patterned paper and adhered them to the edges of my page. I  then added a double stitch with my sewing machine.

"Into The Woods"

Good Morning, all my crafty friends!! This is Dora and today we are going to be working on something out of the "box" for me. As you know, I love mixed media, however, I tend to choose more steampunk, grungy, or a mix for my layouts. Well, a friend and team member (Dana), has inspired me step out and try something new! I really hope you enjoy this video tutorial. I am using the clear acrylic scallop for the back piece which you can find here!

 



Be sure to check out ClearScraps and all their new goodies on the website! I just love all their pieces, because they fit so well with the mixed media I love doing! I hope you enjoyed learning another way to use the larger acrylic pieces. I just love stepping out of the box and making things unique. Thank you for reading/watching and hope you have a lovely day!! 

Other Materials used - flowers, mini pine cones, mini wreath (bird nest), floral assortments, shaker leaves, branches from my yard, moss, the deer is from an ephemera kit, and last but not least an embroidery hoop as the frame!! 

Here is a sneak peek at what is in the video!!

Mason Jar Layout

Hello Crafty Friends!

Supplies you'll need:

Vintage or Cooking scrapbook papers I used Hot off the Press: Home Grown scrapbook papers and Paper Tole Stickers

Home Grown Stamp set, black ink pad

Clear Scraps Mason jar shaker Click here

Clear Scraps Chipboard Frame ( This frame was leftover from one of my Clear Scraps chipboard elements) I always save my scraps to use for other projects.

Twine, paper trimmer, glue, foam dots, tape runner,  photo or journaling card

Glitter heart stickers,  Stickles glitter in Stardust

20200814_154602

Choose a 12x12 background paper base. Cut a matching border paper to measure 12x 3 inches,  and adhere 1 inch above the bottom base page.

Next I painted the top piece of my chipboard shaker using Prima Steampunk Metallic Copper paint and I also painted the chipboard frame with some gold acrylic paint. Let dry. 20200815_133420

Next I stamped a jar ruffle, sweet treats, hearts and enjoy sentiments (make sure you stamp them correctly so they show through your shaker window) onto patterned paper, using black ink. Let dry. I took my Clear Scraps acrylic mason jar piece and traced it onto another patterned paper and cut it out. Then I glued to the back of my chipboard shaker piece.  I also cut out the stamped mason jar ruffle. Then glued a piece of black and white twine to the top of the ruffle.  

Start assembling together your Clear Scraps Mason jar shaker and glue each layer together. Make sure to remove the Clear film from your acrylic layer before gluing. I filled my shaker with some Clear Scraps "Summer" Sequins. They have such a variety to chose from. Click here

20200815_143247

20200815_144801

I took and assembled my Paper Tole pieces using foam dots. I also glued a journaling card to the back of my chipboard frame. But you could add your favorite photo if you like. 

20200815_153015

Lastly I arranged all my pieces onto my layout. Once I am satisfied with the placement I glued them down onto my page. I added a sticker sentiment "sugar and spice" to the bottom of my chipboard frame. Then took my Stickles glitter and applied to the pie crust image on my journaling card.

Clear Scraps 12x12 Acrylic LO -- Find Your Direction

Hi all!  It's Laura here with you today!  I hope you've been enjoying all of the

amazing inspiration here on the blog!  Clear Scraps has so many unique products

that you can have a lot of fun playing with.  One of my faves is their 12x12 Acrylic

Sheets.  I've got a scrapbook page for you today created on one of these!

Clear_Scraps_12x12 Acrylic_Find Your Direction LC(1)

What makes these acrylic sheets one of my favorite ways to scrap?  You can use a

lot of fun mediums on them.  Sure you can use them on paper too, but sometimes

when you do mixed media products on regular cardstock, you can get warping

and wrinkling.  That NEVER happens on an acrylic sheet!  It's a perfect canvas

for texture paste, alcohol inks, paints, you can even stamp on them with a

StazOn ink!  In this LO, I used texture paste and the 4x6 Brick Wall background

stencil that's available from Clear Scraps. 

Clear_Scraps_12x12 acrylic sheet_Find Your Direction close up 1

I just randomly laid the stencil on the page and spread the paste through

the stencil with a pallet knife.  I left it dry really well over night just to be

sure.  If you use other mediums (like inks) drying is pretty quick, but

these are fun if you want to try something new.  Just a little patience

required!  So the next day, I went over the stencils "bricks" with some

distress inks to add depth and interest.  Soft blue and gray are the

colors I used to mimic the water background.  You could easily do

any color, like a red and brown to match an old building, or anything

that would match a picture you have.  The bricks reminded me of the

old lighthouses we have seen at the beach, so I also added the Clear Scraps

Lighthouse Chipboard Embellishment

Clear_Scraps_12x12 Acrylic_Find Your Direction close up 2

It's just painted with gray, white and black acrylic paint, then

brushed with a little ink around the edges, then glued to the LO.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you will give the

12x12 Acrylic Sheets and some of the fun Clear Scraps stencils a try!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  12x12 Acrylic Sheet, 4x6 Brick Wall stencil,

Lighthouse Chipboard Embellishment.

Other:  Paper House Seas the Day Paper,  Paper House beach

sticker pack, enamel dots, acrylic paint (gray, black, white),

distress ink (black soot, weathered wood, pumice stone),

Vicki Boutin Molding Paste.

 


Game On Scrapbook Page

Hello,

Tami here with scrapbook layout to share with you. 

I have been going through all my photos and scrapbook layouts trying to see what I've done and haven't done.

I ran across a photo of my son and his girlfriend playing video games at a local game center. It reminded me that I had a Game On Chipboard Embellishment

I decided to print the photo and get the layout done while I was thinking about it!

I wanted to create my own printed paper to accent the photo.  I used the 6" Chicken Wire Stencil and spritzed it with various colors of ink sprays to make it. I then cut out around it to make it less "blocky".

A HINT for using stencils with spray ink is to spritz directly above the stencil and not at a slant. This helps prevent the ink from getting under the stencil.

The Game On Chipboard Embellishment was painted with Mixed Media Ink, then outlined with a silver gel pen. If you want your colors to be brighter when you ink or paint the raw chipboard, you can give them a base coat of white paint first.

Clear Scraps Chipboard Embellishments -- Did Someone Say Cake?

Hi everyone!!  Laura here today, to share a fun and easy

birthday scrapbook page idea with you!!

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard_Did Someone Say Cake

I'm a huge fan of embellishments and chipboard embellishments

are especially fun because they can be custom made to match

any picture, papers, or other embellishments that you want.

In this scrapbook page, I used the Clear Scraps Present Chipboard

to add just a little something extra to the edge of my birthday LO.

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard_Did Someoe Say Cake_close up 1

I used aqua acrylic paint for the box and lid part, and then

used a brush to use red acrylic paint to paint the bow.

Super simple, but it matches my papers so well!  I also

used a bright, fun piece of polka dotted patterned paper

behind the chipboard piece.  Just trace the present onto

the paper, cut out, and glue.  Another way you can

customize the look of this piece. 

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard_Did Someone Say Cake_close up 2

To make the piece pop off the paper a little more, and

to add a highlight that matched the gray background

paper of this LO, I brushed the edges of the painted

chipboard present piece with some soft black ink using

a sponge applicator.  A few layered mats, twine, and

stickers, and I've got an adorable birthday LO!

The present is one of so many different options you'll

see in the Clear Scraps store HERE.  You can find holidays,

seasons, and so many different themes, everything from

baby, to cooking, to pets, beach, even that famous mouse!

These are great to pick up to have for any scrapbook page,

home decor project, or even cards!  This gift chipboard

piece I've shared today could be for a wedding, for baby,

for Christmas in addition to birthday.  I love having

embellishments around I can customize as I go!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Hope you are inspired to try some of these fun pieces!

 

Supplies Used: 

Clear Scraps:  Present Chipboard Embellishment

Other:  Aqua and red acrylic paint, Bella Blvd

Patience and Be Still Mixed Media Art Journal

ClearScraps-Patience-BeStill-ArtJournal-HelenGullett-1

Hello everyone! Helen is here. Today I would like to share with you this Patience and Be Still Mixed Media Art Journal. These two words speak loud in my heart lately, especially in my recovery journey and this uncertain time. God reminds me to be patience and be still in Him, that He will give us hope while waiting for Him in faith.

ClearScraps_Patience_BeStill_ArtJournal_1

For the first layer of the background, I added the Silver Gouache, Yellow Ochre Gouache and White Gesso. I applied them on the page with the brayer.

After the first layer dried, I mixed the Emerald Green Gouache and Cerulean Blue Gouache on the page with the brayer. Some of the colors turned into pretty teal. I speeded up the drying process with craft heater only becuase I was no patient enough waiting for it to dry.

ClearScraps_Patience_BeStill_ArtJournal_2

I scribbled the Teal Woody Stabillo Watercolor Crayon and Black Woody Stabillo Watercolor Crayon on the page, then using wet round brush I blended the colors and while still wet, I tilted up the journal to get some drips on the page. I dried the watercolor paint with craft heater.

And then, I added some paper strips on the page using permanent glue stick. After that, I used a flat brush to apply some more white gesso on the paper stripes to blend them in. I dried it again with craft heater.

ClearScraps_Patience_BeStill_ArtJournal_3

I like to spray my stencils with stencil spray. I let it dry for about a minute and then I added it on the page. First, I used the 6" Zinnia Stencil. I applied the Aged Copper Metallix Gel with pallet knife. I carefully removed the stencil and carefully drying the gel with craft heater. But the best way is to let it air dry.

I added the 6" Fruit of the Spirit on the page, and I used post it tape to mask the other letters around the word "Patience." I added the Nocturne Pigment Ink on the stencil using dauber. I removed the stencil carefully because the pigment ink was still wet. After that I dried the ink with craft heart.

I repeated the same step for the next words, "Be Still" using the 3x12 Peace Be Still Border Stencil.

ClearScraps_Patience_BeStill_ArtJournal_4

After I dried all the inked letters, I added more flowers and leaves around the page using the 6" Zinnia Stencil and Aged Copper Metallix Gel.

I added some white highlight around the Zinnia flower in the middle of the page using the White Woody Stabillo Watercolor Crayon and wet brush.

I added more texture on the page with some paint splatters with Cocoa Mixed Media Art Spray and White Spray (I made my own spray mix). I dried the whole page carefully with craft heater.

Here are the close ups of the finished page:

Camera Mini Shaker Layout

Hello and happy Saturday! It's Jennifer here to share a layout I  created using one of the Mini Shaker Shapes!  They make for great accents to your pages or to the front of a mini album! Really any project!  Today's project features the Camera Mini Shaker Shape and I'm going to share what techniques I  used.  

 Clear_Scraps_Camera_Mini_Shaker_Shape_layout

I  began with a 12x12 piece of white cardstock as my background.  Using the 12 Inch Spiral Mascil, I  lightly spritzed two coordinating spray inks to my cardstock. The Mascils are wonderful to use with any medium from paint, gesso, or ink.  I  then lightly blotted the cardstock with a paper towel to soak up any extra ink. 

Clear_Scraps_Camera_Mini_Shaker_layout6

I  set that aside to assemble my Camera Mini Shaker.  I  used black color shift paint on the top chipboard frame as well as the edges of the two inside frames.  

Clear_Scraps_Camera_Mini_Shaker_layout2

I   adhered a patterned paper the chipboard base of the camera using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. Next, I  cut away excess paper with scissors and an x-acto knife followed by using sanding paper to smooth any rough edges. 

Clear_Scraps_Camera_Mini_Shaker_layout3

I  adhered my two chipboard frames together and affixed to the chipboard base.  I  then added sequins and glued on the acrylic overlay. Lastly, I  adhered the painted chipboard frame over the top.  

Clear_Scraps_Camera_Mini_Shaker_layout4

Here is the end result of the Camera Mini Shaker! I  love how it turned out! I   adhered it to my page again using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. 

Clear_Scraps_Camera_Mini_Shaker_layout7

I  used die cuts and stickers to accent my photo as well as added a journaling spot. 

Clear_Scraps_Camera_Mini_Shaker_layout9

Here, you can see a close up of the spray inks with the Mascil!  I  love the pink and the yellow together as I  was going for a sun burst effect!

Clear Scraps 6" Stencil -- Tropical Exploring LO

Hello all!   Laura here with you today!  And since I'm

dreaming of the beach, I thought I'd share a LO with a

fun beach and tropical exploration vibe!

Clear_Scraps_6 Stencil_Tropical Exploring

This bright fun LO was created using one of the fun NEW

stencils from Clear Scraps!!  They have a lot of new in the

store, did you know you can find it all under the special

"What's New" section!  One place to find all the new goodies,

I love that!  You can find that section of the store HERE.

Clear_Scraps_6 Stencil_Tropical Exploring close up 1

So using the 6" Turtle Stencil, I angled it along the top

and bottom of the left side of the page.  I used some

washi tape to hold the stencil in place to make it a little

easier to apply the ink.  I used a sponge applicator and

blended a darker color along the edges, then went in

with a lighter color to fill in the center.  I did overlap the 

color just a bit to give it a more blended look. You can see,

Clear_Scraps_6 Stencil_Tropical Exploring close up 2

the difference in shades on the finished turtles.  You

can actually use a spray ink, or paint too.  Before you

go right to application on your cardstock page, it's

always a good idea to try your blending/application

ideas on a piece of scrap paper first to make sure you

like the look before you put it on your cardstock page. 

This also gives you a chance to play with different color

combos, and mediums to see what you like best for the

project your working on.  It's always fun to get creative

and play with stencils!  To be able to get creative to make

backgrounds to match your project by color and subject.

If you've been afraid to give stencils a try, go for it!  You'll

have a great time making custom backgrounds for LO's,

home decor, and more!

Thanks for stopping by today!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  6" Turtle Stencil

Faded Jeans & Salty Ocean Distress Ink, sponge

applicator, enamel dots, twine.


Girl Mouse Mini Shaker Layout

Hello and happy July! It's Jennifer here to share a layout I  created with one of the Mini Shaker Shapes that were released this past January! However 14 new designs were just debuted this past week so be sure to check them out!  If you are a fan of all things Disney then you will love the Girl Mouse Mini Shaker!  I  used it as the main accent on my layout from our trip to WDW in 2018.  

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout

I'm going to show you how I   assembled my shaker!  I  began by painting the top frame as well as the edges of the middle two frames with black acrylic ink (I  always adhere my middle frames together before painting).  

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout2

While allowing my paint to dry, I  selected a background patterned paper to adhere to my chipboard base. I  used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and then trimmed away excess paper with scissors. Using an x-acto knife and sanding tool helps to smooth out any rough edges.  

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout3

Again using my Beacon Adhesive, I  adhered the two middle chipboard frames to the base.  I  was then ready to add sequins to the center of my shaker; it helps to not add too much as well as try to keep them centered so they do not end up glued to the sides. 

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout4

Next, I  used adhesive around the chipboard to place the acrylic piece followed by the top chipboard frame. I  then added a light coat of black acrylic paint around the edges of my shaker to give it a finished look. 

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout5

I  glued my shaker with the Beacon Adhesive to ensure a secure hold.  

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout6

You can see I  added sticker and chipboard embellishments around my shaker to accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout7

Clear_Scraps_Girl_Mouse_Mini_Shaker_layout8

I  also added a cute sticker banner to the top right corner and stitched through with my sewing machine.

Clear Scraps Chipboard Embellishments -- Footprints

Hello everyone! 

Summer is right around the corner, and though vacations

might be a little different this year for some of us, I'm planning

a "staycation" playing in my craft space and scrapbooking

some vacation memories, so I can remember the quiet,

calm, and peaceful,  time at the beach.  And this month,

Clear Scraps is playing along with Tape Runner Adhesive,

it's perfect for the LO I'm sharing with you today!

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints(1)

This started with a blank piece of white cardstock, and I used

acrylic paint and the Clear Scraps 6" Spiral stencil.

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints_close up 4

I went randomly around the edges using a foam brush and

the blue acrylic paint to create my own patterned paper border.

I decided I wanted a little more of a beachy feel for the border,

so I used the foam brush to create wispy areas of color.

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints_close up 3

I just used the brush after I stenciled with the tiniest bit

of paint on it and brushed it on between the stenciled

shapes.  Less is definitely more when you are using the 

foam brush and paint!  In the bottom corner of the LO,

don't you love that little beach scene?

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints_close up 2

The umbrella and adirondack chair come in the same

set, the Beach Chair Chipboard Embellishment.   You

cut them free from the frame they come in, and then

paint, or whatever you'd like. 

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard Embellishments_Footprints_close up 1

A little sand mixed with glossy accents made the perfect

spot for the chair and umbrella to sit and finish this LO.

Want to see all the fun chipboard embellishment options?

You can find them all in the Clear Scraps Store HERE.

Clear Scraps FlipFlop Shaker--You & Me LO

Hi there everyone!!  How's everybody doing? Hopefully

finding some crafty fun time!  Laura here with you today

sharing a LO using one of the new Clear Scraps Shakers!

Clear_Scraps_FlipFlop Shaker_You  Me & the Sea LO

How adorable are those little flip flops?!!  There are so many

cute new shakers that just came out from Clear Scraps, and

there are even more due out soon!  So excited!  If you've

never played with their shakers before, give them a try!

You can paint them, ink them, stamp on them and so much

more!  And then you can fill them with your favorite sequins,

or beads, I was wishing I had some sand....how cute would that

be in the flip flops?!!  You can find the flip flops in the Clear

Scraps store HERE.  If you want to peruse ALL of the new

shakers you can look HERE.  And make sure to check back in the

next few weeks, because there are a lot of new ones coming soon!

Here's a little bit of a closer view, where you can see on this

particular shaker, I used 2 different colors of acrylic paint,

Clear_Scraps_FlipFlop Shaker_You  Me & the Sea LO cose up 1

I generally paint all the outer edges using a foam applicator,

then I go back with a brush to do the more detailed work on

the straps of the flip flops.  You could make them all one color

of course, I just like the contrast, and it brings in 2 different

colors from the papers I used for this scrapbook page.  I added

some beads and some sequins (I like to mix it up!) and a few

stickers on top of the flip flops using some foam tape.

I kept the other embellishments on this page light to keep

the adorable flip flop shaker as the definitely the star!

Adding Chipboard to your Scrapbook Pages

 
Summer Greetings!  Chris here and usually about now we are on vacation.   Always the 1st or second week of June!  One of our favorite vacation spots is Disney World. This year we were supposed to just be celebrating my oldest daughters wedding and they we supposed to be honeymooning in Disney!  But alas this year, the virus seems to have put a damper on a lot of those plans.  No vacations and the wedding postponed. But I can still scrap those memories from previous Disney trips.   This  photo I love, it shows all 3 kids on our last full family vacation as the 5 of us! 
 
The layout features Clear Scraps Mouse 2 Chipboard Embellishments and Clear Scraps 2018 Chipboard Word Title.  And this month we are all playing along with Tape Runner! All this combined with some Simple Stories papers and Disney punches and die cuts. 
 
Start by painting both of the chipboard pieces and set aside to dry. 
 
 
Assemble the layout using Tape Runner to assemble your page and to add your punched border. 

 


 Adhere patterned paper to background.

 

 

Add die cuts and fussy cut images to layout.


 Add painted chipboard to layout to finish.

 

 

I hope you are inspired to get creative with your Clear Scraps Chipboards.
