Summer 3D Frameables

Howdy!

Tami here on the blog with you today to share a project using one of Clear Scraps' new 3D Frameables.

Have you seen them? It's a unique frame concept that lets you change out themes to match whatever photo you want to use.

You pick out a base and a frame design - there are 3 to choose from. Then pick out a theme from 9 different ones to compliment your photo.

Now you can have a year round frame that you can change with the seasons or holidays!

I love the Summer theme with it's Flip Flops wood shape. It was perfect to use with the pic I had of my son playing in the sprinkler...

Frameables_summer_clear_scraps_wood_flipflop_tami_sanders

I used printed paper to cover the base and the flip flops. I used a contrasting paper on the back of the flip flops to make the straps stand out. Clear Scraps' Sanding Stick makes the process easier. The tip gets between the dips in the scallop frame. The Sanding Stick comes in 2 sizes and has replaceable belts which you can move on the stick so that you always have a nice fresh sanding area.

I inked the frame and the Summer word using Oxide inks in an ombre pattern.

I wanted a little more color around the frame, so I added dots that I punched from printed paper.

My photo was also a little slim for the square opening. So I matted it on cardstock and added a coordinating sticker to fill the space.

If you'd like to use your frame year round and change out the themes, you could paint or cover the base and frame with neutral colors.

Or maybe do a different base and frame combo for each season.

I think these would also make great gifts! If you are looking for a unique wedding gift, consider making a set for the new couple. And father's day is coming up soon!

Bouquet of Daisies Stenciled Canvas Gift Bag

Hola!

Tami here with you on the blog today with another project to share with you.

Clear Scraps has some wonderful stencil designs, and several of them are florals that are perfect for summer!

I needed a gift bag for a thank you gift - school is out soon, you might need one for a gift for that special teacher.

The Bouquet of Daisies is one of the fabulous flower stencil designs...

The 6 X 6 size was a perfect fit for the canvas bag I wanted to use. 

I was very happy with how this project turned out; bright and cheery and perfect for spring!

Clear_scraps_stencil_flowers_ink_canvas_bag_tsanders_

Making the bag was easy. I had a canvas bag I wanted to use, so I used some fabric ink, but you could also stencil on a paper gift bag.

I put a piece of cardboard in the bag - so the ink wouldn't go through to the other side. then I arranged the stencil on the bag and taped it down using blue painters tape. I also taped off the areas beside the stencil where the design was close to the edge. This prevents accidental inking off the edges...

Clear_scraps_stencil_flowers_ink_canvas_bag_tsanders_mask

I started filling in the flowers using orange at the center and yellow for the petals - I let the orange go into the inside edges of the petals...

Clear_scraps_stencil_flowers_ink_canvas_bag_tsanders_fill

I filled in the leaves and stems with 2 shades of green...

Here's a closeup of the stenciled design...

I also stenciled a flower on a hand cut tag for the gift. I made sure I taped off the portions of the flower designs that were close to the flower I was using...

Elegant Vintage Acrylic Box and Tags

Hello Crafty Friends and family! 

Im Dana and I'm back to share a Vintage box idea using Clear Scraps small Acrylic Box Click Here

This box measures: 3.5 x 5.0.

20210411_112556

If you haven't worked with acrylic before and have felt afraid to try, I can assure you will find it so easy.  I'll walk you through every step. And Clear Scraps acrylic is very sturdy and the possibilities are endless what you can create!

Open your package and remove the protective film off both sides of each piece of acrylic. Lay them out as shown on the diagram. I placed the labeled letters behind each piece just to keep them in order. 

20210411_113224

Assemble your box and glue all pieces together and apply the round clear stickers, (included) to each corner of your box.  This help hold your box together. I recommend using a strong solvent based adhesive such as Beacon 3 in 1 glue. It's my favorite go to glue for all my projects! 

20210411_115748

After throughly dried, remove all clear round stickers from the corners. To decorate my box I chose to use Graphic45 Elegance collection. I used a variety of papers, chipboard, diecuts and ephermera pack. 

First I chose one of the border papers and cut them down to fit 5 inches on long sides and 3 & 1/2 inches on short sides.  I inked the edges eith Distress ink before gluing. Adhere your border strips along the bottom edges of your box. 

20210411_130157

Next I chose one of the journaling cards and adhered it to the inside bottom of my box. 

20210411_130056

For the top cover I cut another border strip and adhered to the bottom of my cover, took a chipboard sentiment and adhered in the center of my top cover. I fussy cut out a butterfly and dress form from the coordinating papers. Inked the edges of my pieces. Added some foam dots to the back of the dress form before gluing. Took a diecut leaf, some flowers and glued them in the right corner of my chipboard piece. Then added the butterfly and some glitter accents to the butterfly wings and dress form.

20210411_142711

I decided to make 3 matching tags with leftover papers and items in my stash. For the tags I used Clear Scraps 12 x12 acrylic sheet. Click Here

My tags measure 2 & 1/2 x 3 & 3/4 inches. Remember to peel off the protective film before decorating. I punch holes at the top of each tag. Then I decorated each tag. I used a variety of papers, diecuts, small ephermera cards, flowers and gems! And of course some glitter accents. Lastly I tied some pink and white tulle through the top hole on each tag. These tags will  fit nicely inside your box.

Mother's Day Cards with Clear Scraps

Happy Friday! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share acrylic cards I created using Clear Scraps Chipboard Embellishment Shapes!  And I'm going to show you the easy techniques I  used! 

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards

For my first card, I cut a 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece from the 12x12 Acrylic Sheet. I  removed the protective covering from only one side of the acrylic while I  worked.

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards7

Using Staz On Ink in Opaque, I  stamped the front of my acrylic (re-inking the stamp each time).

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards4

I set aside the acrylic to dry so I could paint the Chipboard Embellishment Shapes I planned to use.  For the Clothes Hangers Chipboard Embellishment Shapes and Mother Chipboard Script Word Title, I painted each with chalk paint in light blue.  I ensured that I applied multiple coats for good coverage.  Once dry, I applied embossing ink followed by glitter blue embossing powder. 

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards3

I adhered my chipboard using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive as it dries quickly and will not warp or yellow the acrylic. 

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards9

For my second card, I used the Mother Chipboard Script Word Title and followed the same techniques as my first card.

Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards2

I  again used Staz On Opaque to stamp the front of my acrylic but this time, I  did not re ink my stamp each time. This gave a muted effect to a few of the images. 


Clear_Scraps_Mothers_Day_Cards8

The chipboard is again adhered with my Beacon adhesive as you know you will get a good seal between your pieces!

Garden Floral Journal

Hi there Crafty Friends!

I'm so looking forward to Spring aren't you? I love the beauty of blooming flowers and gardens. For today's project, I'm creating a garden journal using Clear Scraps Wood blank album Click Here and 6x6 Doily stencil Click Here

20210315_143245

These Clear Scraps 6x8 albums are so versatile and can be decorated in a variety of ways. For my project I chose 49 & Market Vintage Artistry Blush collection. 

To begin this project, I took my Clear Scraps Doily stencil and using masking tape secured it in place on the top of my album. I chose only to use only a part of this stencil design. Then taking a palette knife and some 3D gloss gel I spread over top of my stencil. Scrape off any excess gel and carefully lift off your stencil. Let dry throughly. To speed up the drying process, you may use your heat tool. Repeat this same process with the stencil, on the bottom and left side of your album cover.

20210315_145439

20210315_152949

Next we can decorate the cover of the album. I arranged my pieces making sure of the placement, before adhering with glue. I used some ephermera pieces along with some punch out floral pieces. For my flower piece and butterfly,  I added some foam dots to the back, before gluing to my album cover. I glued a few pink sequins to finish off my cover. I like to add glitter to my flowers and butterfly wings. 

20210316_123150

For the inside cover, I cut a 6x4 inch piece of coordinating paper, punched my holes on the right side and adhered as a pocket.  Added a piece of trim to the top edge of my pocket. I took one of the ephermera cards and added a floral rub-on to the envelope. Then tucked inside my pocket. For the adjoining page on the right, I cut this paper to measure 6x8, punched holes on the left side, added a rub-on sentiment and some epoxy dots. I left this blank for a photo or some journaling.

 

20210316_153731

Next page I decorated with rub-ons, and photo frame. I added foam dots to the back of my sentiment and photo mat, leaving side open to slip in a photo. For the page on the right, I added a small photo frame, 3D leaves, and pop dots to the flower and sentiment. I like to add some glitter to my butterfly wings.

20210317_194730

20210317_181920

For my last page, I made another 6x8 pocket, added a punch out butterfly on the ride side of my pocket. Added glitter to the butterfly wings. Took a empherma card added a paper clip and rub on sentiment. I made a tag from some leftover paper, punch a hole at the top. Added a rub on sentiment and some tied some seam binding through the hole if my tag. Then adhered another punch out sentiment to the upper left hand corner of my page.

20210318_121341

For the back cover, I took some leftover paper and cut at 3 & 1/4 x 8 inches and adhered as a side pocket to the right side back cover. Took one of the empherma cards, added another rub-on sentiment and tucked inside the pocket. Added some glitter to the floral images. 

20210316_184947

To finish my album, I added a few metal rings and tied some pink and green ribbons into a bow and added some bumble bee/flower charms.

Stenciled Feathers Altered Tag

Hola!

Tami here with you today on the Clear Scraps Blog.

My projects this month feature different techniques you can use with some of your Clear Scraps products. 

Most of the basic supplies are the same, so gather them up and have a play day to try them out.

Some ideas may be new to you, and some not so new, but the idea is to experiment with the techniques and maybe find a fresh way to use your supplies and Clear Scrap products.

The first project is an altered tag using one of the tags from Clear Scraps' Chipboard Tag Album and the 5 X 9 Feathers Layering Stencil...

 

Clear_scraps_stencil_technique_feathers_altered_tag_tamisanders_complete

Have you ever used modeling paste with your stencils? It is a great way to easily add dimension and texture to your project. 

The center feather in the tag was stenciled using modeling paste, then inked.

I used a page from a vintage dictionary as a background for my tag to add another layer to the project.

The layering stencils from Clear Scraps have a base image, then detail to add on top. You can also use each portion separately.

I put together a short video to show how to make this tag step-by-step...

                                                                                                         

You can use modeling paste to add stenciled designs to Clear Scraps' Wood and Acrylic products too.

You can paint or ink the paste after it dries, or try mixing in a paint or ink before applying the paste.

This altered tag would make a nice gift; slip it in a mailing envelope and send it via old fashioned snail mail.

Garden Angel Mini Pallet Shape

Hola!

Tami here on the blog with you today. The sun is out, the trees are starting to bud and things are beginning to "green-up".

I have some planters on my porch just waiting to be potted with new spring flowers. But I don't have the green-ist of thumbs - unless of course they have ink or paint on them :)

I could definitely use a little help in keeping any new plantings alive, so I thought I'd make myself a little Garden Angel...

Clear_scraps_garden_angel_wood_mini_pallet_tsanders

I started with Clear Scraps' Mini Angel Pallet Shape. I white-washed it with a mix of 50% water and 50% white acrylic paint...

Clear_scraps_garden_angel_wood_mini_pallet_tsanders_paint

After the paint dried, I sanded it lightly around the edges, and a little harder on the face...

Clear_scraps_garden_angel_wood_mini_pallet_tsanders_file

To create the hair, I adhered tiny pink paper rosebuds around the top of the head, and for her halo, some pearls on filament...

Clear_scraps_garden_angel_wood_mini_pallet_tsanders_halo

Next, small yellow flowers were added for the wings...

Clear_scraps_garden_angel_wood_mini_pallet_tsanders_wings

A few tiny white flowers were added to the hem of her skirt for trim and tiny rhinestones and pearls were added as centers to the flowers...

Clear_scraps_garden_angel_wood_mini_pallet_tsanders_pearls

I printed out "Garden Angel" in green ink, leaving some spacing between the letters. The banner was then cut out letter by letter...

Clear_scraps_garden_angel_wood_mini_pallet_tsanders_banner

After adhering the letters to a piece of green twine, the banner was attached to the back of the wings...

Clear_scraps_garden_angel_wood_mini_pallet_tsanders_twine
Clear_scraps_garden_angel_wood_mini_pallet_tsanders_twine
You could add a magnet to the back of this little angel, or maybe a ribbon to tie it around a pot.

Or if you are gifting a plant or some flowers; attach her to a garden stake to place her in the pot.

Craft Storage with Clear Scraps

Hello and happy Saturday!  It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a project with you!  Like most of us, we all need ideas when it comes to organizing our craft supplies! And when you can make something cute and personable, its even better!  The Clear Acrylic Tray Box, measuring 6x9 inches, is the perfect size to fit everything you use to be within hands reach in your craft space! 

Clear_Scraps_Clear_Tray_Box

The Tray Box comes in five separate pieces that you assemble together using the enclosed clear circle stickers. I  also reinforced each of the slots with my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. But before putting together my tray, I applied alcohol ink in yellow to the surface of each piece (leaving out the bottom since this part wouldn't show).   You can also paint, ink, and stamp the acrylic as well!  
Clear_Scraps_Clear_Tray_Box2
I measured strips of paper to adhere around the edge of the tray to add extra color as well as added a colorful punched border.    Using a few die cuts and stickers from the collection I used, I adhered them to the front of my tray.

Shamrock Mini Shaker Gift Bag

Howdy,

Tami on the blog to share another project with you.

As the calendar turns to spring, the colors of nature begin to burst with various colors of green. Some bright and cheery like the lime green of this cute little gift bag...

Clear_scraps_st_patricks_day_shamrock_luck_shaker_box_ts

I turned the Shamrock Mini Shaker into a tag to embellish the bag; it is filled with some BLinGy green plastic flakes...

Clear_scraps_st_patricks_day_shamrock_luck_shaker_box_cu_ts

The top layer of the shaker was painted a dark green, then a layer of Smooch Glitz was added once the paint dried for a glittery finish. Printed paper was adhered to the back piece, and a sticker finishes the embellishment of the shamrock. A ribbon was glued to the back to form the ties for the tag.

This would be a cute little gift for St. Patrick's day of course - you could fill it with treats, a small gift or maybe a gift card. But it would also make a thoughtful gift for someone you want to send a little luck to; like looking for a new job or house, or maybe a competition they are entering or test they are taking. 

Don't forget to remove the protective plastic layer from BOTH sides of Clear Scrap's Shakers and Acrylic products.

Supplies: 

Clear Scraps: Shamrock Mini Shaker

Other: Clear Snap: Parsley Color Eclipse and Shamrock Smooch Glitz, Reminisce Printed Paper and Sticker, Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry, Mini Gift Tote, Ribbon and Fill


Lucky the Mini Shaker Gnome

 

 
I just love that gnomes are so popular right now. And I just knew I wanted to create a "Lucky" Mini Shaker Gnome!  I am going to add a magnet to him and either use him on my filing cabinet at work (where I seem to spend too much time) or on my fridge!
 
Supplies needed include:
 
Patterned Paper, Glitter, Paint, Clover Punch
 
Start by tracing your shaker base onto patterned paper. Detail cut your paper gnome but don't adhere just yet. Paint shoes on your shaker base. 
 

 

Paint your shaker top piece to coordinate using an orange beard of course. Let dry. 

 

Using a layer piece from your shaker set, trace beard onto your base and paint orange. 

 

Adhere your painted paper gnome to your shaker base. 

 

Assemble the pieces of your shaker. 

Filler with coordinating glitter or sequins. 

Add your acrylic layer after removing the protective covering from both sides of the acrylic.  Add your painted top layer to your shaker and add a 4 leaf clover to finish! 

I hope you enjoy playing with these shakers as much as I did! 


 


Valentine Love Desktop Frame

Hi Crafty Friends!

I'm back today with a decorative wood desktop frame project, just in time for Valentine's day! Clear Scraps has several different wood frames to chose from. Click Here

For today's project I chose Clear Scraps  Love wood frame to use for Valentine's day. I also used Crate paper "Main squeeze" collection. 

20210109_121258

First I took some red acrylic paint and a sponge brush, and painted the Love letters, front, back and around the sides. Let dry. I didn't paint the heart shapes or the two stands, because we will be covering those with papers. But you may paint yours if you like. 

20210109_124523

Next I chose two coordinating papers, traced and cut out both shapes. Don't forget to mark where  the slots are on each wood base.  Glue your papers to each base using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. Trim and distress all your edges. Use an exacto knife to cut a slit where the slots are. Make sure the top part of your frame fits securely into each slot before you glue both base pieces together. It should look like this.

20210109_133305

Now take another coordinating paper and trace around your heart shape and cut out. Take your exacto knife and cut out the middle piece of the heart. Distress around the edges and trim as you did before. Then glue a photo or journaling card on the back of your heart with craft glue. Trim off any excess paper. Then glue your heart wood piece onto your frame.

20210109_151104

 

Snap the top of your Love frame together. Then decorate with any embellishments you like. I used some Prima flowers, stickers and chipboard stickers to decorate my frame. I tucked a few hearts and pearls in between my flower petals. I added a mini heart charm and tied around the L letter with a piece of pink twine. Then I glued a few heart gems onto my vintage card image.

Quick and Easy Gift Bag using Mini LOVE SHaker

 

 

Today I am super excited to share this quick and easy Valentine's Day gift bag I created using my Mini Love Shaker from Clear Scraps. This time of year I seem to always be running to the store for gift bags. So, this year I decided to create my own! This project is so quick and easy. You just need enough time for your paint to dry! 

Start by painting your Mini Love Shaker from Clear Scraps base and top layer. I suggest starting with white an letting it dry before adding the red 

I chose to paint my heart red, but if this is a gift bag for a specific cause you could paint the heart to match - such as pink for breast cancer!

Once your paint is dry, begin assembling your shaker.  Add glitter and fillers! Then adhere your acrylic piece (DON'T Forget to recover the protective covering from both sides! )  

Add your top layer then adhere your shaker to two paper doilies as shown and attach to your bag! Just thinking here, this would also make a great gift box topper!  I hope you are inspired to get creative! 


Spring Window by Kelly Parker

Hello on the blog with Clear Scraps today and I have created a hinged Window Shaker! I love this and it was such a fun project, I hope you enjoy it too!

 
To start off this project, I had this vision of what I wanted it to look like but I wasn't sure how to achieve that look, so I started by die cutting all kinds of small leave images from some of my Gelli plate printed papers in greens, yellows, and blues. I wanted a variety to choose from and not run out. 
 
 
I then decided to use washi tape to cover the back of the window. I generally apply glue then add the washi tape then cut off the edges. 
 
 
While the washi tape was drying, I put together the acrylic window. First I had to cut another piece of acrylic because I wanted to add sequins to the front of the window. Pulling out some packaging, I traced around the window and cut out another piece to go on the back. I glued a chipboard window to the back of the acrylic then another chipboard then added the sequins in Ocean and Lovely colors then added the acrylic to the back of this sandwich. You can see it below, the clips are holding it together until it is dry. 
 
After everything was dry, I started to glue down the die-cut pieces to create an illusion of looking through a window. I added leaves to the front and to the inside of the piece after I added the image of the woman peeking out the window.  After this was dry, I drilled holes along the edge and tied it together with some string. 
 

 

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed this project as much as I had creating it!!

Love You More Wood Heart

Hola,

Tami here with you on the blog today to share a project for Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day is the perfect time to show your loved ones your love. Moms, dads, hubbie, kids, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles and friends. Any of them would appreciate a special gift they will know was made just for them.

And although my project was designed for Valentine's Day; change up the colors and it would be nice as a anniversary gift or even a birthday present.

The base of the project is the Heart Wood Shape and accented by Love You More XL Script Wood Quote both by Clear Scraps.

Clear_scraps_love-you_more_script_word_valentine

I covered the heart with 2 different printed papers; with the one on the right being slightly wider than the one on the left. Use a file to remove excess paper from around the edges, then place a sticker strip over where the papers meet. Trim sticker strip...

Paint "Love You More" with white paint; let dry, then outline letters with gel pens...

Use the 6" 5 Heart Stencil to trace and cut out different sizes of hearts on different colors of cardstock. You will need 3 of each size: Small, Medium and Large. Outline the hearts with gel pens, then use Foam Tape to stack the 3 sizes together to form 3 hearts...

Adhere "Love You More" to the left of the heart, and the 3 hearts on the right in a vertical row. Add stickers to accent the design...

Finish by adhering a ribbon loop to the back for hanging...

Thank You Album by Kelly Parker

 Hello crafty friends, I am on the blog today with Clear Scraps creating a Thank You Wood Card Album using paint and paper napkins. 

 

To start this project, I used some Art Anthology paint, this paint has the consistency of a gel and goes on transparent. I wanted to be able to see the wood grain through the paint, had I used regular acrylic paint it would have been too opaque. 
 
 
Here are the covers finished, you can see the wood grain through the paint. Next, I dug around in my napkin stash, which is pretty extensive, and found the perfect design for my cover both front and back. 
Taking a brush and some water, I drew around the area I wanted to use and then tore it out while still wet. Using this method allows for a more feathery edge when gluing the image to the covers. Separate all of the layers using just the top layer on your project. 
 
I then used a bit of white glue on the back of the napkin pieces and applied them to the covers. You need to be a bit careful as the napkin is very fragile. 
 
I then used some jute to attach the front and back covers. 
 

 

 
Thank you for stopping by and check out Clear Scraps for all your fun project needs!!
 

Santa and Ornament Shaker Tags

Hello, Kelly Parker on the blog with Clear Scraps today using some Holiday Shakers for ornaments, I love these shakers, they can be used for all kinds of things but I make homemade ornaments every year for my kids and they will be getting these this year! 
 
To start this project, I used the Mini Shaker Gnome and Mini Shaker bulb along with some gold star sequins. First I painted the outside of the bulb in red then dug in my Christmas paper scraps for some little pieces of scraps to use. I glued them down on the bulb back and cut away the extra. 
 
I set this aside to dry. I then took the plastic coating off the acrylic window and glued it to the back of the bulb, then glued the other sections over the papered bulb back and added the gold stars and glued on the front. My ornament is now ready for gifting! I will probably drill a hole in the top and add some ribbon for hanging.

For the second ornament, I painted the gnome hat and body in red and his shoes in black. I then glued the pieces to the back pieces and added the Lovely Sequins to the hat part and some white sequins to the beard of the gnome. I then used a modeling paste for the beard and ball on the hat. 
 
Shhh...don't tell my kids but I may keep this one for myself! I love it.
