Snow Days 3D Winter Frameables

Hello Crafty Friends:

It's Dana here! I'm happy to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today to share a Winter Home Decor project!

Winter time is upon us and a chill is in the air! I love to decorate my home for all the seasons and holidays. These 3D Winter Frameables are sure to melt your heart! 

For our project today we will be using Clear Scraps Base and Frame-square and Winter/flake word and shape.  

20211218_163126

We will also use the Clear Scraps Garden Tools Chipboard Embellishment Shapes -shovel.

The papers I used to decorate my 3D Frameables are from Carta Bella Welcome Winter collection. 

To start this project,  I removed the word and shape pieces from my package. With my pencil, I traced around my snowflake shape onto coordinating patterned paper. Cut it out roughly, glued my paper onto my wood surface using Beacon 3 in 1 glue.  Then I trimmed around the edges of my snowflake using my x-acto knife. Using my Clear Scraps sanding tool,  I distressed and smoothed around all edges of the snowflake. You could also stamp, paint or spray your wood shapes, if you prefer.

To color my winter words wood shape, with my finger, I rubbed over the surface some Spectrum Noir metallic was in "Cobalt". This will give your wood surface a nice shimmery glow. Let dry.

20211220_133915

After your winter wood words are dry, I took a palette knife and applied some fake snow on the top edges of my winter words. I adhered a puffy snowflake sticker to the top of my letter I. And a puffy tree sticker to the bottom of the letter T.

To decorate my wood snowflake shape, I adhered a "Snow days" ephermera piece to the center of my snowflake using foam dots. Then on the edges of emu snowflake, I adhered some enamel dots in blue and white.

Take your Clear Scraps Chipboard shovel piece and add some acrylic paints in brown, gray and silver, with a paintbrush. Set aside to dry. 

20211221_105917

Now remove both bases from your package. Choose 2 coordinating papers from the collection and trace, trim and distress all edges, including the slits in between on each base. Make sure all slits are free of any excess paper.

20211221_105832

Then take your Beacon 3 in 1 glue and adhere both bases together, making sure all your slots line up.

20211221_110148

Now we can work on our frame! I covered my frame with a different coordinating paper,  trim the outside and inside of the frame and distress around the edges as we did previously with the other wood pieces. You may add a photo to the back of your frame or one of the journaling cards from this collection.  

20211221_134001

I slid my frame and other pieces into each slot on the base. Now you can decorate your frame!  I glued my chipboard shovel to the left side of my frame. Adhered a puffy cocoa mug sticker on the right. Added a "Freezin Season" ephemera  sentiment to the top of my frame with foam dots. I also glued some white/silver pompoms along the top edge of my frame! 

Then I twisted a couple pipe cleaners in silver and white together. Then glued around the base. I took a few white pompoms and piled up on the left side surface of my base, to resemble snowballs! To finish I added alittle bit of fake snow on the bottom of my shovel.

Vacation Countdown Scallop Clipboard

Hello Clear Scraps friends - so good to be here again in the new year with you!  It's Maureen, and I'm looking forward to all the things that this year holds, including an upcoming vacation to Disney World.  How about you?  Do you anticipate where you might travel this year? 

Clear_Scraps_Countdown_Scallop_Clipboard4

It's so much fun to host a personal countdown for upcoming trips.  I've created this project with that in mind - a countdown board that will double as a picture frame long after the vacation is over.

My project centers around the Clear Scraps Acrylic Scallop Clipboard - I'm using the medium size today, and starting by removing the plastic film on both sides of the clipboard.  I thought it would be fun to try some decoupage work, so I've prepped the back of the board with a thin coat of decoupage glue.  I've also traced the clipboard on to a sheet of polka dot paper, then cut it out and adhered it to the back.

Clear_Scraps_Countdown_Scallop_ClipboardB

Since we are going to Disney World, I've chosen the mouse shape from the Word and Shape Magical Mouse pieces to decorate my clipboard.  I've coated this piece with 2 coats of chalkboard paint.  This will become the space that I write the countdown on.  Let this dry thoroughly between coats.

Clear_Scraps_Countdown_Scallop_ClipboardA

Another fun item I've added to this display is the Vacation Chipboard Word Title.  With this piece, I've coated it in a red acrylic paint then went back over it with a layer of red glitter glue.  This also needs to dry well before adding it to the clipboard.

Clear_Scraps_Countdown_Scallop_ClipboardC

Embellishing the front of the scallop clipboard comes next.  I've added a series of decorative print paper in assorted shapes, including some pinwheels I made, then arranged it around a square printed paper as a backdrop.  Next, I've cut a smaller square to put in the middle.  This is embellished on the edge with a thin, black gel pen.  I've drawn small mouse shapes in between the thin lines around the frame to add detail for my future picture.  It's like having hidden Mickeys!

Clear_Scraps_Countdown_Scallop_ClipboardD

I've also added a "DAYS TO" title cut out of black card stock.  Glue the white piece on to the pattern paper and arrange them under the clip of the board.

Clear_Scraps_Countdown_Scallop_Clipboard5

I will eventually put a picture on this board so I wanted to make sure that the pieces allow me to add it later.  So, as I was gluing on the mouse wood piece, the vacation title and the paper embellishments, I made sure I didn't put them too close to where the picture will be.  It might be helpful to cut a piece of paper the size of your picture prior to gluing pieces down.  Tacky glue works well for these items.

Clear_Scraps_Countdown_Scallop_Clipboard9

My display is complete!  I've set my clipboard on an easel so I can change the countdown on the chalkboard piece daily.  It's also handy to be able to write something like the year or other message once I add a picture of our trip later.  This example is from a prior trip, but I am looking forward to putting one on here for 2022.  Oh, and adding the picture was easy - I just slid it under the clip once I had the picture printed!

Clear_Scraps_Countdown_Scallop_Clipboard7

What types of events are YOU counting down to?  This would make a good wedding, school or other type of countdown as well.  The Scallop Clipboard is a perfect size for a display table, and I hope you get a chance to try this little project!  See the additional supplies I used below.  Happy counting!!

Maureen

Additional supplies:  Simple Stories Card Stock Pad, acrylic paints, chalkboard paints, Stickles glue, glitter gems, paper sticker bow

 


Snow Slimline Wood Mini Album

Hola!

Tami here on the Clear Scraps blog with you today.

Do you get snow where you live? Here in Texas - especially here in South Texas - snow is a rarity. Last year was certainly an anomaly! We not only got snow, we KEPT getting snow and the snow stayed around for days! i have lived here my whole life and although I remember a few other snows, this one was something else!

I wanted to make a special mini album to document this event, so I selected Clear Scraps' Slimline Wood Tab Mini Album as my base...

Clear_scraps_slimline_wood_mini_album_winter_snowflakes_stencil_tsanders+cover

I started by using color washes made from acrylic paint mixed with water to paint all the pages. I used a mix of blues and created ombre patterns on each.

For the front cover, I used a silver stencil paste and Clear Scraps' 6" Nordic Snowflakes to add a raised shimmery design at the top of the album cover. Once it was dry, I added some printed paper and my title using letters in chipboard and stickers.

Clear_scraps_slimline_wood_mini_album_winter_snowflakes_stencil_tsanders_6

I used white pigment ink to stencil snowflakes on all the pages as well...

Clear_scraps_slimline_wood_mini_album_winter_snowflakes_stencil_tsanders_4

Once all my pages were ready, it was time to decide what photos to use and what I wanted to journal. Here are pics of all the pages of my album..

Clear Scraps' Slimline albums come in chipboard, acrylic and wood. There are also several styles of each type. The large, tall size is great for vacations, holidays, birthdays, etc.

Framed Friends!

Hi everybody! Leslie here, sharing an embellished frame of treasured memories created with the Friends XL Wood Frame. This piece is huge and wonderful! It was definitely a fun project - from picking out the three photos I wanted to use, to the actual creation with pretty papers and flowers and the assembly! Brought back so many memories! 

2021_12_29_07

I started by tracing each letter backwards on the back side of the patterned papers and fussy cutting each one. I did the same with the three frames at the bottom using solid colors of cardstock.

2021_12_29_01

I adhered acetate to the back of the three frames to keep the photos clean and dust-free (which unfortunately casts weird shadows on the photos so I apologize for that).

2021_12_29_02

I adhered the fussy-cut patterned paper letters and cardstock frames, and heavily distressed the edges. 


I added paper flowers and die cut greenery, and a couple bamboo cord bows. 

2021_12_29_10

Winter-Snowflake 3D Frameable

Hello and happy Monday! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share one of the cute 3D Frameables with you! It's officially winter here in the Central US and that means creating fun memories!  I have a favorite photo of my son and husband making a snowman that fits perfectly with the Winter-Snowflake Word N Shape and Square Frame with Base

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable

I began by using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to adhere patterned paper to my Square Frame.  I trimmed away excess paper using scissors and my x-acto knife.  I then used my sanding tool to smooth the edges between the paper and wood. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable2

I also used Beacon to affix patterned paper to the smaller oval of the base and again using my sanding tool and x-acto knife.  I added white acrylic paint around my edges to give it a snowy look. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable3

I used the same white acrylic paint to color the large oval of my base.

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable4

Once my paint was dry, I secured the 6 Inch Ice Crystal Snowflakes Mascil to the top with washi tape. I blended Distress Oxide Ink in Speckled Egg to the surface. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable5

Here is the end result of the oxide ink + Mascil! 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable6

I then adhered the ovals together using my Beacon Adhesive. It's helpful to use clips to secure the two pieces together as the glue dries. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable7

I again used my Beacon to adhere the Square Frame to the base as shown.  The small lip of wood showing is what will be inserted into the base. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable8

For the Winter-Snowflake Word N Shape, I painted both pieces with white acrylic paint. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable9

On the Winter word, I again used the 6 Inch Ice Crystal Snowflakes Mascil with two shades of blue Distress Oxide. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable10

Here is a close up of the Winter. I added iridescent baubles and a sentiment sticker to accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable11

For the Snowflake, I added embellishments from the collection I used followed by coloring the edges with Distress Oxide in Faded Jeans. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_Snowflake_3DFrameable12

Here is a close up of the frame; I affixed smaller embellishments to allow the photo the be the focus.

Winter XL Wood Gnome

Hello craft friends!  It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a project with you all about winter! Truth be told, I like to scrapbook about winter much more winter itself.  Living in the Midwest, there isn't much to do outdoors in the cold and snow!  I'm more of a warm weather and sunshine girl!  

The XL Wood Gnome 2 is perfect for dressing up for just about any theme or holiday!  I used a bright winter theme for my Gnome to decorate the area next to our fireplace! 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome

Using chalk paint in a light blue, I painted the hands and nose of the Gnome and set aside to dry. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome2

I also used the same color of paint to color the feet of my gnome as shown. I did not worry about my lines being perfect as I knew I would be covering part of the body with patterned paper. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome3

While my paint dries, I used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to affix patterned paper to the front of my hat and to the body of the gnome.  I used my x-acto knife and sanding tool to smooth any excess paper away. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome4

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome5

I  used the Wood Holiday Collection 3 Pack to have pieces to switch out on the front of the Gnome.  I painted the front of the Snowflake with chalk paint in the same light blue chalk paint. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome6

I then added embossing ink around the edges followed by a blue metallic embossing powder. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome7

Here is the end result of the Snowflake. I added embellishments from the collection I used and affixed it to the Gnome with velcro for easy removal. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome8

I  covered the Tree using patterned paper and my Beacon Adhesive.  I then added a light coat of white acrylic paint the edges followed by using circular embellishments. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome9

Last is an ornament which I layered with washi tape.  I used my sanding tool to smooth excess off the edges followed by adding paint in light blue around the edges. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Winter_Gnome10

I covered the two oval bases with patterned paper and affixed them together with my hot glue gun. I did add a little extra glue to the slots where the feet insert for sturdiness. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome11

On the hat, I added pink and black ribbon as well as embellishments to the brim for accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Winter_XL_Gnome12

Clear Scraps Medium DIY Pallet--I Still Believe

Hi there friends!  Laura is here with you today to share a little Christmas Spirit home

decor!  I grabbed one of the ever so awesome Clear Scrap's Medium DIY Square Pallets

and got creating!

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_I Still Believe(2)

It's a bright, colorful festive project that's easy to do!  To start, the edges of the pallet

were brushed with some bright green acrylic paint.  The the patterned paper was cut

to fit and glued down (I did brush a little distress ink on the edges first!).  If you want,

you can always just paint the entire thing too.  Then it was time to decorate it up!

My theme was believing in Santa, and Clear Scraps to the rescue!  Their Mini Shakers

are hard to beat!  The Mini Shaker Sled is the perfect version of Santa's own! 

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_I Still Believe close up 1(1)

The frame was painted with black paint since it was a background piece but I still wanted

it to "pop" to show the outline of the sleigh.  The back of the sled shaker was traced onto a

piece of peppermint stripe patterned paper.  It was glued all together after I added some

pretty, festive, sparkle using the Clear Scraps Holiday Sequins.   The word "Believe" is one

of the many Chipboard Script Word Titles available in the Clear Scraps store.  These are

seriously one of my very favorite things Clear Scraps makes!  The are a great addition to

home decor projects like this, to cards, to layouts.  Really a lot of ways to get creative with

them too!  I painted the "Believe" with acrylic paint and then layered on some glitter glue

for just a touch of sparkle.  You can ink, or stamp on, or spray mist or even emboss to your

hearts content on these pieces!  Make sure to check them all out HERE.

Clear_Scraps_DIY Medium Pallet_I Still Believe close up 2(1)

Just a few more stickers, a journal card I fussy cut and a little twine and of course some

adorable little jingle bells and a touch of bling to finish it off just right!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

 

Supplies Used:

Clear Scraps:  Medium Square DIY Pallet, Mini Shaker Sled,

Sweet Tidings Wall Hanging

Hi Craft Friends!

I'm Dana and I'm here to share a home decor project just in time for the holidays. I love creating Home Decor projects. Don't you? Clear Scraps has so many wooden shapes and pallets that are perfect to decorate and match any holiday or season! 

For my project today, we will be using Clear Scraps Wood Stars 3 pack Click Here 

20211107_143950

and one of the new Clear Scraps mini shakers-scallop rectangle Click Here

20211108_183553

To begin our project, remove one of the wooden stars from your package. You can save the other two stars, for future projects. I began by tracing around my star shape with a pencil onto a patterned paper. I chose Frank Garcia's Sweet Peppermint collection. But any festive paper in your stash will work. I cut out my shape and glued my paper onto my star wood base using Beacon 3-1 glue. Then trimmed off any excess paper using my x-acto knife. I took my sanding tool Click Here  and smoothed around all the edges. 

20211107_145616

Next I added some tacky glue all around the edges of my star shape, then sprinkled some red chunky glitter along the edges. It's a bit messy,  but I love the sparkle look! Set aside to dry. 

20211108_144154

While that's drying, we can work on our shaker! Remove your top shaker piece from the package. I traced around shaker with my pencil onto another coordinating paper. But you can also paint, or add glitter onto your shaker frame, if you prefer. Then cut out and glue your paper onto the top shaker piece. Then I trimmed and distressed along the edges, as we did previously with our wood star shape. Now take the bottom shaker piece from your package. And add a photo or one of the cute journaling cards and glue in the center of my bottom piece. Then take your next two chipboard shaker pieces and glue on top of the bottom piece. You can now add whatever shaker filler you like. I'm using these pretty Clear Scraps Holiday sequins to fill my shaker. Click Here 

Then peel off the protective film on both sides of your acrylic piece, before gluing on top of your previous layer. Lastly add your top shaker piece in place. Set aside to dry. Do not shake or else your sequins will stick to the sides.

20211109_121127

To finish off my shaker, I added some crystal gems on the front to add some sparkle! Then glue your shaker to the center of your star. 

Now we are ready to decorate our piece. I added a variety of embellishments from this collection. I cut out two different sentiments and inked the edges with distress ink. Added some foam dots to the back of my sentiments. Then adhered one above my frame and the other on the right side of my star. On the right side of my star, I stapled a ticket stub and adhered with glue. Then added this cute little bird chipboard sticker. I also glued a flower at the top of my star point. On the bottom I added a snowflake sticker and mitten chipboard. 

To finish my piece, I tied 2 knots at the end of my piece of tulle and hot glued them to the back of my star. Now it's ready to display!

Christmas & Tree 3D Frameable

Howdy!

Tami here on the blog today with a project I'd like to show you.

Here in Texas, we usually just have to imagine snow and cold weather for Christmas! Christmas sweaters are usually to hot to wear, so t-shirts that are made to look like sweaters are a better option! LOL!

Holiday crafting helps me get in the spirit of the season as the weather doesn't. Bright and cheery reds and greens, pine trees, sprinkles of glitter snow all make it feel more like Christmas.

Last month I made a 3D Frameable Base & Frame in a neutral color so I could use it throughout the year and just change out the Word & Shape to fit the season or holiday. Please view the post to see how I made the frame and base.

I embellished the Christmas & Tree Word and Shape. I also added a second tree - I had that shape left over after I made the Be Merry Jumbo Tag I shared with you last week.

I selected a vintage inspired paper line to go with my vintage holiday decor, and also added a tiny vintage glass ornament.

Take a look...

Clear_scraps_3D_frameables_christmas_tree_holiday_decor_decorations_wood_frame_altered_viintage_graphic_45_tami_sanders

Here's how I made it...

First I covered the trees with different printed papers. Then I trimmed the excess paper and used the Sanding Stick to remove the rest. The tip of the sanding tool is perfect for getting into those tight nooks and crannies...

To figure out where to adhere the smaller tree (part of the Word & Shape) I put the larger tree in the slot on the base and adhered the tree so that the bottom would sit on the frame...

Clear_scraps_3D_frameables_christmas_tree_holiday_decor_decorations_wood_frame_altered_viintage_graphic_45_tami_sanders_61

I adhered a quote and some trim pieces on a cardstock scrap to make the insert for my frame. I also cut out a santa and some holly leaves to form a star on one of the trees. A bit of sparkle was added to holly berries and to santa's hair, beard and trim on his coat and pants...

I painted the Christmas red, then added glitter along the top. I used some vintage silver cord to hang a tiny vintage glass ornament from the top of the C.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will come back soon to see what else the talented designers here at Clear Scraps have to show you.

SUPPLIES:

Clear Scraps: 3D Frameable Deco Frame & Base, Christmas & Tree Word and Shape, Wood Holiday Collection Shapes and Sanding Stick

Heart Pallet with Seashells Home Decor Piece

Hi everybody! Leslie here, sharing a home decor piece featuring our Medium Heart DIY Pallet Shape embellished with our Sand Dollar Chipboard Embellishments and Fan Shells Chipboard Embellishments along with a few other supplies! Can't tell you how much I enjoyed creating this! Even though we're almost officially into Winter, I'm squeezing in one more Summer-themed project! It's never too early to get started on next year's gift ideas! ;)

2021_1101010

I started by painting the front and back of the Medium Heart DIY Pallet Shape with Glacier chalk paint.

CStut1_11-01-21

Then I moved on to the Sand Dollar Chipboard Embellishments and Fan Shells Chipboard Embellishments, and painted them with Prominent Pink, Tuscan Red and Oatmeal chalk paint, all mixed separately with Farmhouse White Ash paint to get the desired colors for the individual shells. Then I adhered various shades of pink cardstock behind the shells and inked the edges with antique linen distress ink.

CStut2_11-01-21

I die cut the twisted rope background and adhered it at an angle to the heart pallet.

CStut3_11-01-21
CStut3_11-01-21

I attached the shells, one by one, to the heart pallet and then added three pieces of sea glass (not sure if it's real or faux but it works!) that I inked with tumbled glass distress ink. 

CStut5_11-01-21

I die cut the letters needed for the sentiment, adhered them in the upper left corner, and then added dark blue gemstones to finish the piece.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year 3D Framables

Hi Crafty Friends!

Dana here! I'm back on the Clear Scraps blog to hopefully inspire you with a fun Christmas Home Decor project using Clear Scraps 3D Frameables! They are so easy and fun to create. For today's project I'm using the base and Deco frame Click Here plus Christmas word and tree shape. Click Here

Christmas is just around the corner, but you still have plenty of time to make those special gifts or decor items to decorate your home. 

To start off, remove your two base pieces from your package. You can paint your bases using acrylic paints or trace onto any craft papers you have on hand, then cut them out. I chose to cover both bases 2 different coordinating papers from Carta Bella A Very Merry Christmas collection. I wanted to give my 3D Frameables a more vintage look. But any papers will do! 

I trimmed all along the edges of both bases using my x-acto knife. Then distressed edges till smooth. I prefer using Clear Scraps sanding tools Click Here  Make sure to sand in between each of the slits on top of both bases till smooth and clear of any excess paper. Then glue both bases together using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. Set aside to dry.

Next remove your wood and shape pieces from your package. I painted my Christmas tree with green acrylic paint. For the base of the tree I used brown acrylic paint. For my Christmas words I painted them using red acrylic paint. You can add glitter or stamp these if you like. Set these aside to dry.

Now take your frame and another coordinating paper. Trace around your image using your pencil. Then cut, trim around edges with your x-acto knife. Then smooth around the edges of your frame using your sanding tool. You can now add a photo or one of the journaling cards to the back of your frame with glue. Now glue your top frame to the base frame piece, making sure to line up the top edges.

Now the fun part left to do is decorating your frame and shapes! I glued some green tinsel around my frame edge. Adhered a puffy sticker string of lights at the top of the inside frame. Then added a ephermera 25 and sentiment piece on each side of my frame. 

I adhered a Christmas wreath from my stash to the top of my Christmas wood word. And added some enamel colored dots to my Christmas tree to resemble ornaments and a sequin Star at the top of my tree! To finish my project I glued puffy sticker present at the bottom of my tree, along with a ephermera girl image to the left side of my tree. Added some glitter to my Santa fur and beard.

Believe Christmas Wreath Decor

Hello Clear Scraps friends - a happy December to you all!  I just finished up decorating the house for Christmas, and after unpacking the decorations I realized I needed a new wreath for my door.  I shopped for quite a while but couldn't really find something I liked.  So, I did what any crafty person does - I decided to make my own!

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath11

I found a plain green wreath to start with and went to work deciding on some colors.  In this project, I chose to use the Large Expressions Believe and Holiday Wood Collection.

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath

I wanted a wintery, but Christmas-y look and decided on some reds, whites and blacks as accent colors.  My first task was to paint the Believe Expressions acrylic phrase.  I am a huge fan of plaids, especially around the holidays.  To do this, I started by removing the plastic film on the front and back of the phrase, then began painting stripes on the backside of the phrase.

The first thin red stripes went diagonal in one direction and then crossed in the other direction.  I let this dry completely, then moved to making thin black stripes going in the same directions.

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath4

It helps to stick to the same pattern, so I kept my 2nd stripes off to the right of the first stripes.  Don't worry about them being perfectly straight or even on the paint.  It gives it a really natural appearance at the end.  The great thing about acrylic is if you don't like it, you just wipe it off with a wet towel!

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath15

As these were drying, I also added dots to the corners of each letter.  I dipped the end of a paintbrush into the paint, and made a series of dots.  It makes the cutest detailing!  These drops need lots of time to dry before the next layer.

Now, make a 3rd set of stripes, this time off to the left, with a thicker white stripe.  I then came back the other direction to cross over a final time.

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath5

It was time to decorate the Holiday Wood pieces next.  I chose to cut 2 Christmas trees with a pinking shears and decoupaged the fronts in a black and white checkered printed paper.

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath8

Once these were dry, I attached some poinsettia embellishments to the top of the trees, then hot glued these pieces together.

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath7

Next, I worked on the snowflake wood pieces.  These have a base coat in white, then were splattered with a black and red acrylic paint for a speckled look.  I also thought it would be fun to add some of the same dotted detail to the middle and ends of these, similar to the phrase detail.

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath9

To attach these pieces to my wreath, I took floral wire and weaved it through the end letters on the Believe phrase, then tied it in the back.  If this will be in an area with weather, I highly recommend sealing the back of the phrase with a paint sealer first.

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath13

I also attached the wood pieces to the wreath, but this time I took a tinsel ribbon and looped it a couple times around the wood pieces first, then tied them in the front and trimmed the ends.  I love the sparkle look this gives the wreath.

Clear_Scraps_Believe_Expressions_Wreath14

My final touches were some floral berry picks and a bow.  I also tied on a set of bells to the middle of the wreath as well.  I'm so pleased with how this looks on my door!  It was a project that only took a couple hours and it looks great.  Would you give a project like this a try?  I hope this inspires you to work on your holiday or home decor also.  I've listed additional supplies below, if you want to give it a try.  Thanks for stopping by!

Be Merry Christmas Jumbo Wood Tag

Hi Ya,

Tami on the blog with you today with a holiday project to share.

Christmas is my favorite holiday to decorate for. Maybe because I collect vintage Christmas items year round and I finally get to display them!

But I also enjoy crafting for the holidays. To create decor pieces that blend with my true vintage items. 

I love using book papers or sheet music as a base for projects, but sometimes don't want to use my originals. For this project, I used copies of some vintage music I had to cover the Scalloped Jumbo Wood Tag...

Clear_scraps_christmas_jumbo_wood_tag_holiday_decor_decorations_stencil_tami_sanders_vintage_music_altered

Here's how I made the tag...

I started by making color copies of some vintage Christmas music I had. (I'm telling my age, but that book was MINE when I was a child taking piano lessons!) Then I tore strips from the papers and adhered them to the tag. The excess paper was trimmed, then I used the Sanding Stick to finish removing the paper from the edges...

To age and mute the music a bit, I first sanded it with a sanding block, then painted it with some diluted white paint. The edges were also distressed with chalk ink...

Clear Scraps has some FABULOUS stencils! The Be Merry stencil measures 6 X 16 and fit nicely on the tag. I chose a limey bright green pigment ink for the "Merry" and stenciled it down the center of the tag. I also embossed the ink for added texture and shine...

I painted the ornament from the Wood Holiday Shape Collection red, then used a dark Charcoal Pigment Ink to stencil "be" at the center. I used a stiff detail brush (a beauty swab works) to fill in the spaces in the letters with ink. (I did the same thing on the "e" in "Merry". I also embossed the word...

I painted the Holly Chipboard, adding some lighter green accents on the leaves...

I used a white pen to outline the letters on the ornament and to add accents to the holly. I also outlined the letters on the tag with a black pen to help them pop a bit more...

To finish, I adhered the ornament to the side of the tag, adding a small bow from silver cording to it. I made a large bow from silver wired ribbon and attached it to the hole at the top of the tag, leaving a loop for hanging. Then I adhered the holly to the center of the bow...

Thanks for stopping by today. Please come back soon to see what other holiday crafting ideas the designers have for you!

Sparkle Bulb Medium DIY Pallet Shape

Hello friends and happy Saturday! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a fun, easy home decor project I created using the Bulb Medium DIY Pallet Shape!  If you like to create your own Christmas decor or give personalized gifts, the DIY Pallets are the perfect size. 

Clear_Scraps_Bulb_Medium_Pallet

I began by painting the top two slats of my pallet with chalk paint in red.  You do not have to use chalk paint but it does go on nicely and dries fast. 

Clear_Scraps_Bulb_Medium_Pallet2

I then used black chalk paint to color the top of the pallet as shown.  I tried to follow the curve of the Bulb as best as possible but you can also use a round object in your stash as a guide. 

Clear_Scraps_Bulb_Medium_Pallet3

Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I affixed patterned papers to the bottom slat of the pallet. I cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife and healing mat.  I then used a sanding tool to smooth any rough edges.  I did add a thin coat of red chalk paint to the outside edge. 

Clear_Scraps_Bulb_Medium_Pallet4

To decorate the front of my pallet, I used the 4x6 Sparkle Stencil with Staz On Black Ink and Glitter Gel.

Clear_Scraps_Bulb_Medium_Pallet5

Last, I punched a hole in the top left of my pallet and strung jute through to hang.  I attached buffalo plaid ribbon and a bell to accent.
