Mouse Medium DIY Pallet Shape

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a fun home project I created using the Mouse Medium DIY Pallet Shape along with a couple Clear Scraps products! And I'm going to show you the techniques I used so you can hopefully feel inspired to do some Clear Scraps crafting of your own!

Clear_Scraps_Mouse_Medium_DIY_Pallet

I began by painting the front of my pallet with acrylic paint in black. I also used the same paint to color the Mouse 2 Chipboard Embellishment Shapes.  I then set aside both to dry. 

Clear_Scraps_Mouse_Medium_DIY_Pallet2

I measured out a strip of patterned paper to adhere to the middle slat of my pallet. For this particular section, I cut 2 3/4 x 10 inches then used an x-acto knife to trim the edges.  After, I lightly sanded to smooth any paper overhangs. 

Clear_Scraps_Mouse_Medium_DIY_Pallet3

Next, using my 4x6 Stars Stencil I used a spatula to apply metallic embellishment mousse to the bottom and top slats of the pallet.  The color is almost a gun metal grey and looks nice in contrast against the black.

After ensuring my paint was dry on the chipboard embellishments, I applied embossing ink to each followed by black glitter embossing powder.  Each were set with a heat gun and adhered using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.

Here is a close up of the second Mouse 2 Chipboard Embellishment Shape! You can also see the stencil/mousse end result as well!

Last, I punched holes at the top sides of the pallet to string some fun chevron red/white ribbon to be able to hang my creation!

3D Frameables -Welcome Home Decor

Hi Crafty Friends!

I am so excited about the new 3D Frameables from Clear Scraps! If you're like me, I love to decorate my home for different seasons and holidays! These 3D Frameables come in so many different styles of frames, embellishments and words. For my project today, I chose the 3D Frameable-scalloped frame Click Here and welcome/ mason jar embellishment Click Here 

20210618_142102

To begin I chose 2 patterned papers from Echo Park Farmhouse Kitchen Collection. I traced around both bases with a pencil onto my papers. Cut them out and adhered both papers to each of my bottom bases, using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. I trimmed around each base using an xacto knife, including the slots in both pieces. Then smoothed my edges using my sanding stick. Take both bases and glue them together, making sure to align your slots.

20210618_190341

Next I took the welcome words and painted with red acrylic paint. Let dry. I also painted the top portion of my mason jar with silver acrylic paint. While drying. I traced my scalloped frame piece onto the Wood paper. Cut out and trimmed, and distressed around the edges of my frame, as you did with your previous pieces. 

20210619_112418

I covered my mason jar shape with another patterned paper and repeated the previous steps as you did for the other pieces. I took some twine and wrapped around the top of my mason jar. Added a bow on the left side and a cute flower button! I adhered two small hearts on both ends of my twine. Then I added an ephemera sentiment onto my jar to finish.

20210619_130120

Now take your scalloped top frame piece and add either a photo as I did, or any matching paper, even your favorite quote to the back of your frame, making sure to align all slots. Then glue your frame on top of the second frame piece. Slide your frame into the back slot on your base. You can add any other embellishments to your frame as you prefer. I added some flower stickers and another sentiment. 

20210619_130214

Add your mason jar embellishment and welcome words to finish your project!

Mouse Autograph Album

Hi everyone, have you seen the assortment of  wood cards available in the store?  Not only can you use them as cards, but consider using them as mini albums.  Check out the cute Mouse Autograph Album I chose to create.  

Mickey-card-clearscraps-steph-ackerman
 
I used the Mouse Wood Card, choosing to turn it into an autograph album. 
With the world finally opening up, how fun would it be to gather signatures of your favorite characters at Disney World in this Disney themed mini album.

It's the perfect size to hold onto while walking around the park, or you can just as easily slip it into your purse.
 
Mickey-card-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman
 
I inked the covers with yellow ink because it was handy.  But I could also have painted the covers.
 
Mickey-card-clearscraps-2-steph-ackerman
 
I cut about a dozen pages to fit inside the album and then punched the holes.
 
Placing the 6" Dandelion Wind stencil on the front cover, I inked portions with brown ink.
 
Mickey-card-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman
 
To finish I placed several metal word titles from my stash on the cover.

Choose Happy Wood Mason Jar Shape

Howdy!

Tami on the Clear Scraps Blog today with another project to show you.

Clear Scraps has some great wood shapes, and one of their NeWeSt is the Mason Jar! The Mason Jar Wood Shapes come 3 to a pack and are a nice size; perfect for decor projects!

I combined the Mason Jar shape with another of Clear Scraps' wood pieces the Choose Happy XL Script Word Quote...

Clear_scraps_mason_jar_wood_shape_choose_happy_script_word_stencil_tami_sanders1

To make it, I started by painting the jar a bright, happy blue! I added a layer of white paint to the jar lid to make it lighter...

While the jar dried, I gave the Word Quote a coat of white paint...

Clear_scraps_mason_jar_wood_shape_choose_happy_script_word_stencil_quote

And once that dried, it was time to start embellishing! First I used the 6" Daisies Stencil to apply some cheery pink and orange flowers to the word quote...

Clear_scraps_mason_jar_wood_shape_choose_happy_script_word_stencil_ink2

I used blue painters tape to hold the stencil in place white I worked. Its an easy way to get sharp crisp stenciling with no smudges.

Once the flowers dried, I distressed the edges of the word shape with yellow ink...

Clear_scraps_mason_jar_wood_shape_choose_happy_script_word_stencil_distress

I also used the same stencil to ink more flowers on white cardstock and cut them out...

Clear_scraps_mason_jar_wood_shape_choose_happy_script_word_stencil_cut    

I fit a piece of ribbon across the bottom of the lid, and adhered it in the back...

To finish it up, I adhered the quote to the body of the jar, the flowers to the right side of the ribbon and I added a few ribbon "tails" to the bottom of the larger flower...

Thank you for stopping by today, please come back soon!

Country Kitchen Slimline Scalloped Album

Hello Crafters!

Dana here! I love creating albums! How about you? Have you seen all the new Slimline albums from Clear Scraps? We will be using Clear Scraps  Wood Scalloped Slimline album for today's project Click Here    and the new Scalloped Chipboard border Click Here

To start, I painted a one inch border on all pages using Acrylic paint (Parchment) let dry. I took my chipboard scalloped border and painted both the front, back and edges using cherry red acrylic paint. Set aside to dry.

20210613_185635

The papers I chose to use are Carta Bella Country Kitchen collection, which includes matching ephermera, tags and stickers. All base papers will measure 41/4 x 10 1/4 inches. For the front cover,  I cut another paper at 3 3/4 x 9 3/4 inches to adhere on top of my base paper, using foam tape. I added some banner stickers along the scalloped edge of my album. I decorated the front cover with some ephermera,  sentiment titles, added foam dots to the back of my vintage gal sticker and adhered to the right of my album. I fussy cut out the canning jars, inked the edges and added pop dots before adhering to the bottom of my album cover.

20210616_144848

Page 1: I added a pocket, and border edge using a border punch from my stash. Tucked in acouple journaling cards. Added some sticker sentiments and pop dots to my milk bottle cap!

Page 2: I added a cream cardstock photo mat measuring (3 1/4 x 5) and memories tab sticker on the left top. Took two ephermera pieces and adhered to the  top and bottom of my page using foam dots. 

20210616_185727

Page 3: I made a flip up page measuring 4 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches, scored 1/2 inch at the top, added a punched border at the bottom and adhered this piece to the top of my page. I added a scalloped border sticker on the top. Took the Rooster ephemera tag and adhered to my flap page along with a button at the top of my tag. You could add a photo underneath the flip up page.

Page 4: I took another ephemera card and adhered slightly below the top page using foam dots. This would be a perfect place to add a favorite recipe! I adhered a rooster sticker at the bottom along with some rub on sentiments to finish my page. 

20210616_192527

Page 5: I made another pocket page, using yellow cardstock and added a sticker border to the top of my pocket. Pop dots to my sentiment and garden lady ephermera pieces. 

Page 6: I made a side pocket using red cardstock,  measuring 3 1/4 x 10 1/4 inches, added a punch border. This pocket will open to the right. I like to add a few journaling cards and tag with some twine tied at the top of my tag. Ephermera sentiment and a frame in the middle of the page. You could slip a photo inside the frame if you like! Sentiment  at the top and a vase/daisies sticker at the bottom of my pocket. 

20210617_141052

Page 7: Made another pocket using a larger journaling card, tucked in a few ephermera cards and tag with some twine tied at the top! Farm to table sticker at the top of the page. 

Page 8: Another pocket with a punched border edge, some canning jar stickers at the bottom using foam dots. Tucked a few cards into the pocket.

Now take your pages and attach together using metal rings. Take your scalloped chipboard border piece, mark the holes and punch out using a Crocodile hole punch. Add the chipboard border to the front of your album. To finish off, I tied acouple ribbons to my metal rings.

Wood House Shape Home Decor

Hello crafty friends and happy Friday! It's Maya here on the blog today to share a wood house home decor featuring one of the Wood Shapes and the Chipboard Word Titles. I also used the Brick Wall Masking Stencil to add some patterns to the background. The house wood shape is just so perfect for a family photo and I used one of our pre-wedding photos to create this Home Sweet Home project. Absolutely love how it turned out!

P1210384_post

▼ Here I used the Wood House Shape and Home Word Title for today's project.

20210707_153325

▼ I began by painting the house shape and the Home word title with acrylic paints in pink and brown. 

20210707_155914

▼ After acrylic paints dried, I glued a piece of twin to enrich the background.

20210708_131336

▼ I also added some brick patterns by using the Brick Wall Masking Stencil along with brown acrylic paint to add some textures to the background.

20210708_132124

▼ As you can see, here I fussy cut a photo frame and some florals from patterned papers for decoration and layering. My little tip to add some depth for layering is to adhere the second or third layer of ephemera with double-sided adhesive foams. 

▼ Before I glued my photo and all the decorative pieces to the house shape, I also added a piece of lace ribbon for extra touches.

Adventure Wood Slimline Album

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog using one of their newest Slimline Albums - The Wood Regular Slimline.

 
I started by spritzing the covers with water, then adding assorted colors of Brushos Color Crystals to create the background.
Adventure-wood-lbum-clearscraps-steph-ackerman
 
I wanted some of the wood grain to show so I spritzed additional water to allow the colors to spread.
 
Adventure-wood-album-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman
 
Once dry, I taped the Adventure Stencil on an angle on the front cover and started inking the stencil with black ink.

I continued inking and re-inking the stencil until adventure was dark enough.

Remove the stencil to see the fabulous result.  The slimline albums are the perfect size for the 12" stencils.

There's No Place Like Home - 3D Frameable Decor

HiYa!

Tami here on the Clear Scraps blog with you today. And I have a project to share using one of the NeW 3D Frameables

I started with the Base with Deco Frame and added the Home-House Word n Shape.

Clear_scraps_3D_frameables_home_wood_frame_gift_altered_tami_sanders

I love that you can swap out themes to match your photos! Great home decor or gift item!

I started by covering the frame portion with printed paper. Clear Scraps' Sanding Sticks - which come in Large and Small - are great for removing the excess paper from around the frame quickly and cleanly. And you can order refill Belts for the sticks so that you can always have a fresh sanding surface. Of course you can move the belt around the stick first, until you use up ALL the sanding areas of it! I added some paper flowers with pearl centers to the upper left corner of the frame. 

Next, I painted the small part of the base green, and the larger part white. I painted the house blue and the home word yellow.

I wanted to add a few more details so I used some clip art to print out a small door, window and 2 hearts. I used markers to color them in, then cut the pieces out and adhered them to the house and the "o" in home.

I wanted to put a quote rather than a photo in the frame, so I also printed out "there's no place like..." on white cardstock.

One hint when assembling these frames is to use 3D tape or squares to adhere the front of the frame to the base of the frame - making sure you place it close to the outer edges. That way, you can slip photos in and out easily.

I also like that this project can be completely disassembled to store flat. Or to make shipping easier.

Now is a good time to get some of your holiday gifting done! Also keep the new 3D Frameables in mind for gifts for birthdays, weddings, new homes and almost any other gifting occasion you can think of!

Thank you for visiting the Clear Scrap Blog today; please come back and check out what new project the design team has to share with you!

Clear Scraps XL Wood Flip Flops-Dive into Summer Decor

Hi there everyone!  Laura is here with you today, ready to make a splash with some

cool summer decor using the adorable XL Wood Flip Flops from Clear Scraps!

Clear_Scraps_Flip Flops_Dive into Summer(1)

Who needs a little summer fun decor?  Or maybe you have a pool and want to hang a fun

sign to decorate the area or by the entrance?  Summer is all about sunshine, fun, and

of course, flip flops!  These jumbo XL Wood pieces from Clear Scraps are so fun to

decorate up!  I used acrylic paint in a fun bright blue color that was a great match

for the paper collection that I was using for this project.

Clear_Scraps_Flip Flops_Dive into Summer(3)

Then I painted the straps in a deeper blue color for a nice contrast. Both shades were

in the patterned paper I was using.  It's easy to pick your shades for these types of

projects when you use the embellishments or paper you'll use as a guide.  I added

the "title" of my project and also a couple of cute little flowers to dress up the flip flops

 just a bit.  You could use rhinestones, enamel dots, a lot of things to dress them up!

Clear_Scraps_Flip Flops_Dive into Summer(2)

In the bottom right corner, I used a couple of journal boxes, matted them onto

white cardstock for a nice contrast, and then added some stickers for a fun touch.

The little awning on the top was created by folding a pretty piece of paper about 1/4"

back to "pop-up" the piece of paper and using a paper punch to create the scallop.

With it's bright cheerful colors and cute little stickers, it's perfect for summertime!

But if you'd rather create for another season, or for every day decor, make sure to

check out all the awesome shapes of the XL Wood decor pieces in the Clear Scraps

store!  You can find them all right HERE.

Multi Stars Chipboard Embellishment Pallet

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a patriotic 4th of July home decor project I created using some fabulous Clear Scraps products! And I'm going to walk you through the techniques I used! 

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet

Starting with the Square Medium DIY Pallet Shape, I painted the front with two coats of chalk paint in red.  Just about any type of paint will use but chalk is my favorite as it dries quickly and looks nice with the birch wood. 

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet2

Once my paint was dry I was ready to use my Mascil.  Using a spatula and the 6 Inch Fireworks Splash Mascil, I applied gold metallic texture paste to the front of my pallet.  Since the Mascil doesn't quite fit the entire pallet, I allowed each area to dry before re-applying my stencil.  

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet3

I set aside my pallet to dry to work on the Multi Stars Chipboard Embellishment Shapes!  I painted each one with white chalk paint followed by adding embossing ink + powder to accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet4

Here is a close up shot of the stars! I  ended up only using three of the four from the set.  I love how they look next to the gold metallic!

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet5

I added a favorite photo from a past holiday along with patterned paper as well as some cute bakers twine. 

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet6

I used my Big Bite to punch holes in the top of my pallet to string this cute plaid red, white, and blue ribbon through to hang my creation!  

Clear_Scraps_Multi_Stars_Pallet7

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Hope this inspires you to create with Clear Scraps today! Have a wonderful day!

Additional products used:  patterned paper, die cuts, stickers: Pink Paislee; paint: FolkArt; metallic paste:  Heidi Swapp; bakers twine: Whisker Graphics; epoxy stars: Bella Blvd; hole punch: We R Memory Keepers; embossing ink: Ranger; embossing powder: American Crafts, Recollections; misc: ribbon


Under the Sea Circle Pallet

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here sharing a new project using the Circle Pallet Shape as the base.

Octopus-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman

The circle pallet was painted with several shades of blue paint. 
For a bit of shimmer, I spritzed on a spray ink.

Octopus-clearscraps-1-steph-ackerman

Once dry, I used the 6" Beach Fun Stencil to add several stars and sea shells to the background with brown ink.

Octopus-clearscraps-steph-ackerman

Next, I painted the Octopus Chipboard Embellishment with dark blue paint so he would stand out from the background.
I wanted the Octopus to appear happily floating amongst the sea shells.

Octopus-clearscraps-3-steph-ackerman

The Octopus was adhered to the right side.  Then I added a crab from the 6" Beach Fun Stencil in a different color for a more dramatic effect.
 
With all the pallet shapes available, what will you create with yours?

Woof 3D Frameable

Hello and happy Monday! It's Jennifer on the blog to share another of the new 3D Frameables!  For my project, I used the Woof-Bone Word N Shape along with the Base with Square Frame.   One of the great things about the 3D Frameables is that you can mix and match themes, as well as interchange elements depending on the holiday!  The Woof-Bone Word N Shape is perfect to show off a favorite picture of our dog, Henry!  

IMG_8767 (1)
I began by painting the base of the Square Frame as well as the "Woof" word in chalk paint in orange.  You do not have to use chalk paint but it does dry quickly as well as looks great on the birch wood. I also painted the smaller top base oval with black acrylic paint.

IMG_8766

Next, using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and patterned paper, I  covered the top of the Square Frame as well as the bone.  I cut away excess paper using scissors and an x-acto knife followed up with a sanding tool to smooth any edges.  I did use the same orange chalk paint to line the edges of each element before assembling my 3D Frameable.   My bottom oval base is also covered in patterned paper; I found it was best to use my x-acto knife to cut out the paper in the slots followed by using a thin sanding tool.


IMG_8763

After my paint was dry then I was ready to add embellishments to my elements!  I chose smaller stickers to not overwhelm each piece.

IMG_8768

Here, I adhered my photo directly onto the base of the frame followed by the square cut out. I then used stickers from the collection I used to accent the frame.   You can see there is a portion of wood that "sticks out" from underneath the frame and this is what holds it into the base.  You can move your elements as you see fit!

3D Frameables are amazing  interchangeable home decor items. 
You select the pieces you want to create your own perfectly designed project.

Fall-frame-clearscraps-rinea-3-steph-ackerman

I'm working with the a fall themed design.  I painted the large base and the frame with brown paint.  Rinea Marigold/Gold Foiled Paper was adhered to the smaller base, creating a nice contrast.  Since I was using a foil paper, it was very easy to cut the slots needed to insert the 3 elements.

Fall-frame-clearscraps-rinea-steph-ackerman

For added dimension, I adhered Rinea Marigold Starstruck and Rinea Mocha Starstruck to the pumpkin, then, I used the new sanding tool to sand the edges.  FALL was inked with brown ink and also lightly sanded for a distressed effect.

Fall-frame-clearscraps-rinea-1-steph-ackerman

All the elements fit into the slots and you can arrange them as you like.

Fall-frame-clearscraps-rinea-5-steph-ackerman

I stamped a fall phrase on the pumpkin, then placed a photo in the frame.  If you leave one of the edges of the frame free, you can easily replace the photo as the season progresses.

3D Frameable Collection Magical

Hello and happy Wednesday! It is Maya here on the blog today to share a home decor project featuring the new 3D Frameables. If you like to create and decorate your own home decor projects, you will definitely love this new collection! 

P1210271_post
▼ For my project, I have the scallop frame and magical-mouse head word n shape.

▼ To start the project, I traced the wood bases on 2 patterned papers, and then cut them out with a carving craft knife.

194586171_311817390406409_1102811266575342983_n

▼ Next, I applied Aleene's tacky glue on the wood bases and adhered the cut out papers on top of the bases.

194852895_1324276131288467_3368773981867079545_n

▼ For the magical word shape, I painted it with acrylic paint in black. After the black paint dried, I also added some dots with bright yellow, blue and pink colors using a paint brush for extra touches.

195173218_332426325061859_2937982154808231744_n

▼ Here, I painted the mouse head in black as well. Wait until the paint is dry, then use patterned papers and stickers to decorate around the mouse head shape.

▼ For the wood frame, I gave it a coat of embossing powder by using a watermark ink pad, detailed white embossing powder and a heat gun. Then, I applied 0.25 inch double-sided foam tape on the back of the scallop frame to adhere to the back frame, so a photo can slide into the frame.

Thank you for stopping by today! It's so fun that we can pick a frame and a theme to create our own home decor pieces. You may check HERE for all the new releases. Have a blessed day!

Clear Scraps Slimline Albums--Mermaid Tales

Hi there everyone!  Laura here with you today to share some summer vibes with you in a

project created using one of the new Clear Scraps Slimline Albums!!

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales(1)The Wood Wave Slimline Album gives the perfect base to create an album for all of

those summer pictures of the lake, the beach, the pool, whatever!

The cover is different patterned papers torn to create a wave look that adds some

texture to the front of the album too and then one of the Clear Scraps shakers,

the Mini Shaker Fin, is the perfect embellishment.  I painted the top frame using kind 

of an ombre look in different shades of aqua, and traced the tail shape on a beachy

patterned paper for the base piece, then filled the shaker with sparkly sequins in pretty

ocean colors to fit the theme of my mini album.

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales close up 1(1)

The next pages are covered with more patterned papers in shades of blue, aqua, and

patterns that made me think of a pool, or the beach.  The pictures and a few embellishments

were added to complete the page.  I love the larger size in these slimline albums, it gives you

a lot of extra room to add more pictures or embellish with a lot of fun stickers and such!

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales close up 2(1)

There is a lot of room to fit at least 2 pictures, and even full size pictures!

Clear_Scraps_Slimline Album_Mermaid Tales close up 3(1)

You can keep the pictures straight, or angle them--again, plenty of room!

For the last page, I had already traced the mermaid tail on

some patterned paper that reminded me of mermaid tail scales.

These were glued onto the back of the album at different angles,

then trimmed along the edge of the album, and after they were glued to the

album, and I went around the edges with some glitter glue to give it

just a little of that mermaid sparkle.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Clear Scraps--3D Frameables--Farmhouse Welcome

Hi there everybody!  Laura is here with you today, and can you believe that summer

is right around the corner?  And even better--it's Clear Scraps new release time!

Adorable newness is here in the store!  You can find details under the "What's New"

tab on the website, and today I've got a project to share, using the new 3D Frameables!

These new frames are a blast to create with!  You choose your base, I chose to use the

base with the deco frame, which you can find HERE.  I decided to paint it using gray

acrylic paint, and then dabbed on some white paint to give the frame a distressed

farmhouse look.  I used paint on the base also, but you could trace this onto some

pretty patterned paper and cut it out to fit as well.  Next up was to decide which set

of extras to use.  I used the Word n Shape Welcome Jar.  Perfect with these farmhouse

patterned papers and stickers too!

Here you can see the frame a little better.  I also painted the word "welcome" using

black acrylic paint.  It really makes the word pop against the background.

And then that adorable little jar!!  So many things you can do here, I just kept it

simple.  I painted the jar with blue and gray acrylic paint, brushed on a little black

soot distress ink, and then added paper and a sticker so it looks a little

and a sticker, so its a little like a "label" on the jar.  Twine and a sweet tag finish

off this little embellishment and then the frame was finished off with some

patterned paper and stickers--or you can always pop a picture in there too!

Then you slide all the pieces right into your base.  So easy, so cute!
