Fin Mini Shaker Layout

Hello! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a layout I created with some awesome Clear Scraps products! Summer is in full swing and I am loving the warm days and extra sunlight! Which of course means time outdoors and fun activities like hanging out at the pool!  I  documenting this adorable photo of my niece and nephew swimming and thought the Fin Mini Shaker Shape would be the perfect focal point!


I began by painting my top chipboard frame of the shaker using chalk paint in a patina color.  Chalk paint isn't necessary but it does dry quickly.  And I just happened to love this color for my page!  I also painted the inside edges of the middle chipboard frames as well. 


Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I adhered patterned paper to the base chipboard of my shaker. I cut away excess paper with scissors and an x-acto knife. I  finished by sanding the edges to smooth any rough spots. 


Again using my Beacon adhesive, I adhered my two middle frames to the base as shown.  I then added a few different varieties of chunky glitter to the center of my shaker.  For adhering the acrylic piece, it is best to add your adhesive onto the chipboard as apposed to the acrylic overlay.  This will prevent smudging on the acrylic.


Here is the close up of the end result! I did again use my Beacon to adhere the Fin to my layout for a good seal. 


For my background, I secured the 12 Inch Fish Scales Mascil to my 12x12 white cardstock with washi tape. I then blended four different Distress Oxide Inks as shown. 


Here is a close up of the stencil + oxide ink! I love the bright colors and how it turned out!


Lastly, I added in different embellishments from the collection I used to accent my page!

Stencil a Faux Ceramic Tile


Tami here on the Clear Scraps' Blog today with a bonus project to share with you!

This month my projects each featured a simple new or different way to use Clear Scraps' products. 

I kept the base supplies the same, so it would be easy to experiment with the ideas and techniques.

Today, I'll show you how to make a faux ceramic tile using a stencil and chipboard.

Ceramic Tiles come in many different styles, patterns and colors, but they can be expensive, and are too heavy for use on some projects.

Using chipboard for the "tile" will give you a similar look, but allow you to use the tile on projects that traditional ceramic tiles would be unsuitable for.

Here is the tile I made...


I used it to embellish a plain gray planter in my living room...

Clear_scraps_dry_emboss_technique_faux_tile_tamisanders_planter - Copy
Making the tile was easy, and started with a piece of white chipboard and Clear Scraps' Fan Scroll Stencil...

Tape stencil to chipboard and then use embossing tool to add design...


Use your finger (best tool for this job) to lightly rub gel medium into design. Work QUICKLY! as it dries fast!


After gel medium has been applied, quickly, but carefully, remove stencil.

Apply base color of ink to chipboard. Dont press hard over embossed area, let applicator glide across it...


Apply touches of accent colors...


Spritz lighlty with water to activate inks; let dry...


Closeup of detail...


Cut tile to desired size and its ready to be incorporated into your project...


You could also make smaller tiles, or cut a larger one into smaller pieces, to embellish the edges of a frame or mirror.

I hope you enjoyed this project and will come back soon for more Great projects from the other Fabulous Clear Scraps' Designers!

Ocean Themed Art Journal Page

Today I am excited to share this art journal page I created using my Clear Scraps Stencils. This page features the following stencils:
This art journal page also uses Watercolor paper, distress inks, water, Embossing ink, clear embossing powder and sticker sentiments. 
Start by securing your Clear Scraps 6 inch Turtle Stencil  to your watercolor paper. 
Ink your turtle using distress inks. 


Leaving the Clear Scraps 6 inch Turtle Stencil  in place, ink turtle with embossing ink. 
Add clear embossing powder and heat emboss. this will protect your turtle from "water" damage in later steps. 


Using distress inks, ink your ocean. 


Add Sea plant to your page using Clear Scraps 5 x9 inch Swirl Tree Layering Stencil and distress inks. 


Move the Clear Scraps 5 x9 inch Swirl Tree Layering Stencil to add more plants across the bottom of your page. 

Sprinkle your page with water to create air bubbles in your ocean. Dip a cap into water and "stamp" onto your ocean to create larger bubbles. 


Add your desired sentiment to finish your page. I hope you are inspired to create your own stenciled art journal page. 


Flower DIY Wood Shape Mini Album

Hi friends!  It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a spring time project with you!  I love the colors of this time of year and even more creating projects that incorporate spring themes!  For today's post, I used the Flower DIY Wood Shapes to create a mini album and am going to share the techniques I used! 


All of the DIY Wood Shapes come in a pack of three so you can use one solo shape or do as I  did, and create a mini album or even a banner! I painted the edges of both sides with chalk paint in patina; a nice blue spring color!  I love using chalk paint with the birch wood because it dries quickly as well as gives it a classy look. 


Next, using my Silhouette I  cut 6 inch circles out of patterned paper to fit the pages of my book.  I applied each background piece using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive as it dries fast and you won't have to worry about paper or wood warping in the future.  I then secured the 4x6 Butterfly Flock Stencil to the front with washi tape then blended in different Distress Inks over the top. 


Here is a close up of the end result!  I  love the way it turned out!  


For the remainder of my pages, I  added a 6 inch patterned paper circle with a 4x4 space for a future photo. 





For this page, I used the 4x6 Quaterfoil Stencil with my Distress Oxide inks over my patterned paper.

Flock of Butterflies Card with Embossing Technique


Tami here on the Clear Scraps' Blog today to share a project with you.

This month I'm focusing on techniques that you can try out using your Clear Scraps' products.

I used a lot of the same supplies on each of the projects to make it easier to play and try out the ideas.

Today, I'll be showing you how to use a Clear Scrap Stencil with your diecut or embossing machine to add an embossed design to paper.

It's nice to be able to "multi-task" your supplies; find different ways to use them.

The design from the Butterfly Flock Stencil was embossed on watercolor paper and then used to make this card...


If you'd like to try out the technique, here are the step out directions for the card...

NOTE: For this project, ink your paper before embossing since oxide inks are being used. The embossed detail would be lightened or lost by the use of water on it if you embossed the paper first.

Apply scattered areas of inks across watercolor paper...


Spritz lightly with water to activate inks...


Blot lightly with clean paper towel; let dry...


Place the stencil on diecutting plate, position paper (inked side down) over it, then add embossing mat (or cut piece of fun foam) and cover with top plate. Add foam and or chipboard pieces to stack if needed. Your stack will depend on your diecut machine...


If embossed design is not as detailed or deep as you would like, try adding another piece of foam or chipboard.

Here's how the paper looks after it is embossed...


Place stencil over inked paper, matching embossed design...


Ink design...


Inking brings out the raised embossed design...


Lightly distress ink with file...


Distress edges of inked paper...


Stamp sentiment...


Adhere inked cardstock to card front. Cut out sentiment and adhere using foam tape...


Embossing your design before stenciling it is a great way to add dimension to your project.

Try embossing on plain white or kraft cardstock, then using bright vivid colors to stencil the design for a bold graphic look.

Shell Mini Shaker Layout

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a layout I created using one of the new adorable Mini Shakers!  There are so many different shapes to choose from as well as a few words!  Summer is always packed full of fun memories and activities including days in the sun!  The Shell Mini Shaker is a perfect accent to my photo of my niece jumping in the pool! 


I began by backing the chipboard base of my shaker with patterned paper. I found its best to use a solvent based liquid adhesive such as Beacon 3-in-1. I then trimmed excess paper away using scissors followed by using a sanding tool to smooth edges. 


Next, I painted the top chipboard frame as well as the edges of the two inside frames with chalk paint in Patina.  


Using my Beacon adhesive, I adhered the two chipboard frames to the base.  I then inserted Star Sprinkle Mix along with additional sequins to the center.  Next, I adhered the acrylic piece followed by the top chipboard frame. 


Here is the final result of my assembled shaker! I again used Beacon 3-in-1 to adhere the shaker to my page. 


To give my background a pop of color, I used the 12x12 Spiral Mascil along with spray ink in yellow. This is a great technique to use if you usually use a solid color for your base page.  


Here is a close up of the spray ink with the Mascil! I love how it turned out especially against the white cardstock!  I added a cut file that I adhered behind my photo as well as used small die cuts and embellishments to accent.

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


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.



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. 


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.



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.



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.


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. 


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. 




I hope you enjoyed my project today and it will inspire you to create your very own journal. Be sure to visit the Clear Scraps website Click Here

For all your crafting needs. Thank you for visiting the Clear Scraps blog! Until next time, Happy crafting!

Stenciled Feathers Altered Tag


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...



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.

Decorated Easter Gift Bags by Steph

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here to share some cute Easter Gift Bags decorated with the 4" x 6" Grass Stencil and the Bunnies Chipboard embellishments.


I started by lightly inking the gift bags with green ink.   
Placing the Grass Stencil on top, I used a darker green through the stencil, moving the stencil to completely cover the gift bag.
Next, I used blue ink to simulate the sky.


The bunnies were removed from their frame and painted with pink and blue paints.


Happy Easter was stamped in black ink to the right of each bunny.


Using a small oval die and Rinea Foiled Papers, I created an assortment of Easter eggs and placed them around each bunny.


Now just fill the bags with the recipient's favorite Easter candies.
Fold over the flaps of the bag, punch holes in the tops and then insert ribbon.
Tie the bags closed.


Thanks for stopping by.

Other Supplies:  Plaid Paint, Oxide Ink, VersaFine Clair Ink, Rinea Foiled Papers

Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Easter Egg--Egg Hunt LO

Hi there everyone!  Laura here today with a LO to get you ready for springtime and

those Easter egg hunts, or it could easily be tweaked for coloring eggs!!

Clear_Scraps_Egg Mini Shaker--Easter Hunt LO(1)

Just looking at the colors, bright, cheerful, fun, has got me thinking of Spring!

This LO started with the a blank white piece of cardstock.  I wanted to make a

unique border, so I chose the 6" Damask background stencil from Clear Scraps.

I used some distress ink layered in to get a different color, and also added in a few

smudges of ink to distress it up just a little--I wanted a softer look to the border.

After that I brushed some bright green acrylic paint around the edges of the

cardstock, and then set that aside to dry.  Next I grabbed that oh so adorable NEW

Mini Shaker Easter Egg from Clear Scraps!

Clear_Scraps_Egg Mini Shaker--Easter Hunt LO(2)

It was painted with white and green acrylic paint on the top layer.  Love the cute chevron/wavy

detail on this one!  While the top frame dried, the back solid layer was traced onto the pretty

flower pattern paper, cut out, and glued onto the solid chipboard piece, then I glued on the

 layering pieces, added some sequins, then sealed the sequins in with the acrylic layer. A little

tip/reminder, or if you are not familiar with the mini shakers, there is a special protective

film on BOTH SIDES of the acrylic piece that keeps it nice and scratch free.  Make sure

to peel off both pieces.  I generally peel the back off, glue it down, and then peel the top off

right before I glue on the top painted frame.  That way it stays nice and perfect--scratch free!

There are so many different Mini Shakers in the Clear Scraps store--you can find them HERE.


Thanks for stopping by today!


Supplies Used: 

Clear Scraps:  6" Damask Stencil, Mini Shaker Easter Egg

Other:  green and white acrylic paint, sequins,

Doodlebug Spring Things paper and embellishments.

Confused State of Mind - Stenciled tag


Today I am excited to share this tag I created using some of my favorite Clear Scraps Stencils. My creative thoughts were all over the place when I was creating this tag using gears, butterflies and bricks!. I think the sticker sentiment I found completely matches my state of mind! 
To recreate this tag you will need: 
Other Supplies
Large tag, Distress ink, Iron Embossing Powder, Scraps of patterned paper, lace, sticker sentiment, dimensional paint, leaf vine punch, jute
Start by applying distress ink over your Clear Scraps 6 inch Gear Stencil covering about 3/4 of your tag. 


Tear edges of scrap paper and cover most areas of stenciled gears. 

Apply distress ink through Clear Scraps  4x6 Brick wall Stencil



You can see what a layered background this is creating. 


Secure Clear Scraps 4 x 6 Butterfly Flock Stencil over tag. 

Apply dimensional paint through stencil. 

This effect has now created 3 different layers onto our tag!


Add torn scraps of patterned paper onto tag. 



Mat your tag onto card stock and add sticker sentiment. Add lace under sticker sentiment. 

Add embossing ink to your Clear Scraps Street Lamp Chipboard Embellishments and emboss with iron   embossing powder. 
Turn your tag upside down and add embossed street lamp to tag.  I did tuck a few punched leaf vines behind my street lamp.  Add a jute bow to finish.  

I hope you are inspired to get creative with your favorite Clear Scraps Stencils!.

Bunnies Chipboard Embellishment Slimline Card

Hello and happy Saturday!  It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a spring time themed card with you today!  And I'm going to show you the techniques I used! Slimline cards are very popular right now and I have to say I enjoy creating them.   I  began by cutting a piece of white cardstock  3 1/2 x 8 1/2, scoring at a half inch. 


I set aside my base to paint the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishment Shapes with white acrylic paint. I did not worry about coverage as the white would be my underlying color. Once my paint was dry, I  applied a generous amount of crackle effect to the surface and allowed to dry. 


Next, I  cut a 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece from a 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheet.  Using the 4x6 Quarterfoil Stencil and a spatula, I  applied modeling paste to the surface of my acrylic. I only removed the protective film to the front while allowing my paste to dry. This ensures keeping the acrylic clean and free of any unwanted smudges. 


After my modeling paste was dry, I  repositioned my stencil over the acrylic and blended three coordinating distress oxides over the surface. 


After ensuring my crackle was dry, I painted a light coat of blue chalk paint over the surface of the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments. I then added buttons for tails and used a punch for a cute bow tie. I popped the second bunny up using foam dots for extra dimension. 


Here is a close up of the modeling paste/distress oxide effect with the stencil.  I  love how it turned out! 


Last, using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive I  added paper flowers to the top of my card for extra spring time accent!

Mixed Media Spring Tags by Maya

Greetings! It's Maya here on the blog today to share two mixed media tags featuring the chipboard tag and chipboard shape embellishments. I absolutely love Clear Scraps chipboard embellishments because they are great to use on any craft project from tags to layouts or even home decor pieces. 


▼ I started by tracing the chipboard tags on the patterned papers, cutting them out, and adhering to the chipboard tags with tacky glue.


▼ I decided to give the background some texture by using the stencils along with modeling paste. The stencils I used on these two tags are 6" Monarch Butterfly and 6" Quarterfoil


▼ After the modeling paste dried, I started the layering using tearing papers, tags, and chipboard embellishments (cog gears & fancy butterflies) . I usually try different ways of layering until I feel great with the layering. And then I will take a picture for my reference later on when everything is ready to be glued. 


▼ Here I added splatters by using spray stain for extra colors on the background.


▼ For the chipboard embellishments, I tapped them on the watermark ink pad, sprinkled white embossing powder and heated with a heat gun.


▼ When all the elements are ready, I started to adhere them to the tags. I also added some lace ribbon pieces and small ephemera like butterflies and little word titles for extra touches.


Thank you all for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired to get crafty with your Clear Scraps supplies. Have a great day!

Clear Scraps Wood Rectangles -- Embrace the Journey Decor

Hi there everyone!!!  Laura here with you today, to share some home decor inspiration

with this project created using the versatile Clear Scraps Wood Rectangle as a base.

Clear_Scraps_Wood Rectangles_Embrace the Journey Decor(1)It's bright, cheerful, and a reminder that we all have our own unique journey,

(even more so right now!) and we should embrace it, and try to find a reason to

celebrate or be grateful everyday!

Now I am a huge fan of a "blank canvas" so to speak, like these Wood Rectangles.

Clear_Scraps_Wood Rectangles_Embrace the Journey Decor close up 1(1)

These come in a 3 pack in the Clear Scraps store, so they are not only a great item

to create with, but they are a great value as well!  Ink them, paint them, stain them,

cover them with pretty paper, or you could even just leave them plain wood.   For

this project, I used blue, white and gray acrylic paint.  I painted most of the piece

blue, but didn't cover it all.  I came back in to fill those spots with streaks of white

and gray.  I wanted it to feel like a pretty springtime sky.

Next I layered in the bricks!  The 4x6 Brick Wall stencil from Clear Scraps is a fave!

Clear_Scraps_Wood Rectangles_Embrace the Journey Decor close up 2(1)

It's perfect for backgrounds, and if you use a texture paste and a little ink on there once

it dries (like I did here), it gives such a great texture.  I also just scraped some paste

randomly around the edges to frame it off.  With the stencil, you could also trace it,

or use paint or sprays or inks as well.  A lot of great possibilities to get creative!

While the base dried, I painted the cute little Fence Chipboard Embellishments.

Clear_Scraps_Wood Rectangles_Embrace the Journey Decor close up 3(1)

I used gray acrylic paint, and then brushed on white to give it a little more of a weathered

fence look.  Love all the options of chipboard embellishments from Clear Scraps!

A few layered cardstock embellishments and stickers, and I've got a great piece of

inspirational decor to hang in my home office, craft room, or wherever!!

Thanks for stopping by today! 


Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  Wood Rectangles, 4x6 Brick Stencil, Fence Chipboard Embellishment.

Other:  Vicki Boutin Storyteller ephemera and stickers and molding paste,

acrylic paint--gray, white, speckled egg (distress paint).

Little Bunny Baby Greeting Card



Greetings today I am excited to share this cute little baby card I created using my Clear Scraps Stencils and Chipboard! I just love cloud stencils as they are so fun to play with. 

To recreate this card you will need the following:
water color paper, Card stock, embossing ink, white embossing powder, wood grain patterned paper, bakers twine, floral sticker, distress ink
Start by laying your Clear Scraps 6  inch Cloud Stencil  onto your water color paper. Add Embossing ink through stencil. 

Add white embossing powder and heat emboss. 


This will create a "resist" that will resist the ink we will apply in the Next step. 


Apply distress inks over your embossed clouds. Don't you love how those clouds just pop! 


Mat onto card stock and add to your card.  

Apply adhesive to your Clear Scraps Bunnies Chipboard Embellishment and lay onto your wood grain paper.  Trim paper.  Add bow to your bunny and add to your card. 

Add floral sticker and stamped greeting to finish your card. I hope you are inspired to get creative with your Clear Scraps Supplies. 

Hello Spring Wood Shape Wall Hanging by Maya

Hello everyone! Maya is here on the blog today to share a spring wood shape. It was so much fun to create this mixed media home decor piece using Clear Scraps wood shapes, chipboard shape embellishments, and stencils. I am ready for spring to arrive! Who is also ready for spring?


▼ I used the rectangle wood, old truck and butterflies chipboard embellishment for this project.









▼ First, I painted the background with clear gesso. After the gesso dried, I applied another coat of white acrylic paint. Instead of using white acrylic paint and clear gesso, you may apply white gesso directly.


▼ Next, I blended inks to the white background using distress oxide ink pads along with sponges.


▼ Here I added another layer of butterfly patterns to the background by using 6'' monarch butterfly stencil and blending distress oxide ink with a piece of sponge.


▼ I also added some embossed bubbles by applying VersaMark ink to the image through the 6" Bubbles stencil and white embossing powder.


▼ For the chipboard embellishments, I painted them with pink acrylic paint.


▼ The final touch is these paper flowers I made for decoration! You can also use any kind of paper or fabric flowers for decoration.


Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope you are inspired to create your own spring themed home decor pieces. Blessings.
