Family XL Desktop Wood Frame

Hello! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share one of the new XL Desktop Wood Frames that were released this past January!  There are six designs including the one featured for my project: the Family XL Desktop Wood Frame.  And I'm going to show you the techniques I  used to decorate my frame. 

Clear_Scraps_Family_XL_Desktop_Frame

Each Desktop Frame comes with four pieces: the back base, frame, and two wood ovals to stand your project.  I  began by painting the "family" letters with white acrylic paint. I  did not worry about whether I  had good coverage as only a little of the white will show through in the end. 

Clear_Scraps_Family_XL_Desktop_Frame2

Next, I  applied a thin coat of crackle effect to the top of the white acrylic paint.  Allow ample time for this step to dry. 

Clear_Scraps_Family_XL_Desktop_Frame3

While waiting for the crackle to dry, I  painted the two oval base pieces with chalk paint in green.  Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I  adhered the two together pressing firmly to ensure a good seal. 

Clear_Scraps_Family_XL_Desktop_Frame4

I  also used the same green chalk paint over the crackle effect to give a distressed look. Here is a close up of the end result. I  covered the wood frame with patterned paper and adhered to the wood back.  

Clear_Scraps_Family_XL_Desktop_Frame5

I  finished placing a small amount of adhesive into each of the slots, then placing the top piece into the base.  I  then added stickers and die cuts to accent my frame.

Faith Over Fear Pallet Sign

Hello everyone... Helen is here today. Today, I would like to share this Faith Over Fear Pallet Sign that I created using the Square Medium DIY Pallet Shape and Faith Over Fear XL Script Wood Quote.

Clear-Scraps-Faith-Over-Fear-Medium-Pallet-Sign-1

I use 12 x 12 scrapbook paper that I cut into 3 paper strips. I applied thin layer of Mod Podge with foam brush on each of the pallet wood, next I added each paper strips on the wood pallet, and then I applied another thin layer of the Mod Podge again.

The Mod Podge can dry in couple hours or over night. But I dried it with craft heater (heat gun) for faster drying. But the trick is when use craft heater (heat gun), you have to be careful for the glue not to get bubbly becuase of the heat.

I added extra texture on the wood with paint splatters using acrylic paints (white, teal and dark blue) that mixed with a little bit of water. And then I used the brush to add the splatters on the wood.

Clear-Scraps-Faith-Over-Fear-Medium-Pallet-Sign-2

While wait for the splatters paints to dry, I grabbed my Extra Glitter Mod Podge jar and another clean brush. I painted the wood script word with those glitter mod podge and look at that... I got a glitter wood word!!! I love how it turned out. Again, I used craft heater to speed up the drying time.

I added the wood word on the wood pallet with wood glue. I put some heavy books on top if it while it was drying.

These last several weeks that we all have been through are uncertain. I hope this sign can be a reminder for all of us to have faith than fear, to help us to remember that God in whom we have put our trust is at work in our lives every single day.

Thank you for stopping at our blog today. Have wonderful day!


House DIY Wood Shapes

Hello! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a mini album I created using the new House Wood DIY Shapes! You receive three shapes in each package where you can use a single shape or all three to create your project! After layouts, mini albums are one of my favorite to create so that's what I  chose!  I  thought the house shape would be perfect to showcase some favorite photos of my family! 

Clear_Scraps_Wood_House_Mini

I  covered each page with patterned paper using my  Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and sanding the edges. To create contrast, I  applied a light coat of white acrylic paint around the edges of each page. 

Clear_Scraps_Wood_House_Mini2

The bottom portion of the page is large enough to fit a horizontal 4x6 photo. I   almost always mat my pictures onto white cardstock and back with another patterned paper. 

Clear_Scraps_Wood_House_Mini3

The birch wood is sturdy yet easy to use a Crop o Dile or Big Bite to place holes for your book rings (you can also thread your pages using ribbon or jute).  

Clear_Scraps_Wood_House_Mini4

Clear_Scraps_Wood_House_Mini5

I  like to add extras in my books such as envelopes or small acrylic pages. Here, I  had a kraft envelope in my stash that I  used for extra embellishments and journaling.  You can also add photos or place mementos into the envelope. 

Clear_Scraps_Wood_House_Mini6

Besides covering with patterned paper, you can ink, paint, or stamp onto the birch wood.  The Clear Scraps stencils work great with the wood products as well!

Clear Scraps DIY Medium Pallet Shape--Our Home

Hi there everyone!  How we all holding up?

Laura here today, to give you a little craft time

distraction with an idea for a cute little home

decor project that's fun and super easy to do!

Clear_Scraps_DIY Wood Pallet Shape_Our Home

Is your home your happy place?  I love being at home.

But I also feel like it's always a work in progress.  It's messy

sometimes, it's not decorator perfect, that's for sure, but it's

full of our memories, and mementos we've gotten from different

events, pictures, and of course, some of these fun home decor

pieces I've created over the years.  This one starts with a great

base piece, the Clear Scraps House Medium DIY Pallet Shape.

Love these medium pallets, and there are a lot of great shapes

to choose from.  You can always go with a basic square or circle,

that's a great place to start (check them all out HERE)

Don't be afraid of the shapes though,  you just paint it, or you can

trace it and cut it out of a pretty patterned paper like I did here.

Clear_Scraps_DIY Wood Pallet Shape_Our Home_close up _2

Just cut around it, and cut the strips.  I like to ink around

the edges sometimes.  Not every time, just depends on the

look I'm going for.  After that, just glue the pieces to the

wood using your favorite adhesive.

The words "Our Home" are also a Clear Scraps item.

You can find all the XL Script Wood Quotes in the

store under the embellishments section. 

Clear_Scraps_DIY Wood Pallet Shape_Our Home_close up _1

I simply painted it all white, then went back in using

a brush to paint the heart in red.  I added a few

stickers and enamel dots to complete this cute little

piece of home decor.  You could add a ribbon or

display it on an easel in your home.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Every Moment Matters with Clear Scraps

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here today to share a home decor project I created using some fun Clear Scraps wood products! It's officially springtime so I  started with the Flower Medium DIY Pallet Shape as my base. And I'm going to show you how I  decorated my pallet. 

Clear_Scraps_Flower_Medium_DIY_Pallet_Shape

I  selected my background paper and measured each "slat" of the Flower.  I applied Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to the front the pallet and adhered the patterned paper. 

Clear_Scraps_Flower_Medium_DIY_Pallet_Shape2

I  cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife and healing mat to trim around the edges. I  also used sand paper to smooth the seams between the paper and pallet. 

Clear_Scraps_Flower_Medium_DIY_Pallet_Shape3

Using a foam applicator, I  painted the edges of the pallet with white acrylic paint not worrying about having clean lines. 

Clear_Scraps_Flower_Medium_DIY_Pallet_Shape4

Next, I  painted the Every Moment Matters XL Script Wood Quote with chalk paint in green.  Again, I did not worry about covering ever surface of the wood.

Clear_Scraps_Flower_Medium_DIY_Pallet_Shape5

I  then applied wax to the front of the Wood Quote using a tea light candle (however you can use any candle in your stash). The more wax you apply, the more distressed your effect will be. 

Clear_Scraps_Flower_Medium_DIY_Pallet_Shape6

I  then applied white paint in small sections, scrapping the excess off as I  went.   You can also use sand paper to smooth any areas you weren't happy with. I  affixed my Wood Quote using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. 

Clear_Scraps_Flower_Medium_DIY_Pallet_Shape7

I  used stickers and chipboard embellishments as accents. I  also utilized my hand punches to add additional butterflies. 

Clear_Scraps_Flower_Medium_DIY_Pallet_Shape8

To finish, I  used my hole punch at each side to thread ribbon though to hang my project!

Clear Scraps XL Script Wood Quote--You Got This!!

Hi there everyone!  Laura here with you today to share

a little positivity and encouragement!  We could all

use a little of that right now!  At least we do have the

signs of spring, gorgeous warm weather, sunshine,

the grass is starting to get green and some of those

early springtime flowers are starting to make their

appearance.  At least that's what it looks like here in

the midwest!  You might be a little ahead or a little

behind, but gotta love spring!

My project that I'm sharing with you today has a

little bit of springtime mixed with the encouragment

we all need a little bit of right now!

Clear_Scraps_XL Script Wood Quote_You Got This

This bright cheerful little sign uses a wooden star base (coming

soon from Clear Scraps....watch the "What's New" section!) and

the XL Script Wood Quote--You Got This is spot on for a reminder

we can get through this together a day at a time!

To create this one, I started by tracing the wooden star shape on

the bright flower patterned paper.  I cut it out and glued it to the

star base.  Then I brushed the edges with some bright pink acrylic

paint for a pop of color.   The You Got This sentiment is painted

with yellow acrylic paint.

Clear_Scraps_XL Script Wood Quote_You Got This close up 1

What could be more cheerful than bright yellow paint??!!

And then I added a couple of heart stickers, and tied a little

spring birdie tag to the letter "U" with a bit of twine.

I wanted to showcase the springtime vibe a little more,

Clear_Scraps_XL Script Wood Quote_You Got This close up 2

and the hello spring sticker was perfect! I am so happy

spring is here, hope you are too!  Enjoy the sunshine

(and the rain bringing those sweet spring flowers)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Inspirational Pallet

Clear_scraps_washi_tape_wood_pallet_faith_butterfly (500x500)

Hola,

Tami here to share a little positivity with you today.

We find ourselves amidst troubling times; where our everyday life has become anything but "everyday".

So I thought I'd put some pent up energy into making something positive for my home. Clear Scraps has many messages of faith in their line, and I decided to use the "Faith Over Fear" XL Wood Quote as a starting point.

I noticed that the quote fit perfectly on the Medium Deco Pallet Shape, so decided that would work great as the base for the quote. 

I wanted something colorful for the background, but couldn't find a printed paper I liked and didn't just want to paint or ink it. Then I caught sight of my washi tape; I have a "slight" addiction to it as you can see from this photo...

Clear_scraps_washi_tape_wood_pallet_faith

Washi tape comes in tons of patterns and colors and I thought it would work well to cover the pallet with.

I placed strips of washi tape horizontally on each section of the pallet, lining up each strip directly beside the previous one. Then used a file to remove excess tape from edges.

For the quote, I painted it white so it would stand out from the background; then distressed it, especially around the edges of the letters. Loosely outlining the letters in a black pen helped define them a bit more.

Washi tape was also used to dress up the Fancy Butterflies Chipboard Embellishment.

Here is a short little video that shows you how I made this project step-by-step.

Supplies:

Clear Scraps: "Faith Over Fear" XL Wood QuoteMedium Deco Pallet Shape and Fancy Butterflies Chipboard Embellishment

Other: Assorted Washi Tape, White Acrylic Paint, White Cardstock Scrap, Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry, File, Scissors, Black Pen and Paint Brush

 


Large Chipboard Embellishments Home Decor

Hello! It's Jennifer here to share a home decor project I created with a few new Clear Scraps products! I   began with the Rectangle 12x10 Medium DIY Pallet Shape and covered each slat with patterned paper.  Using a solvent based adhesive, such as Beacon, works best with the birch wood.  

Clear_Scraps_Home_Wood_Pallet

Next, I  painted the Tractor Large Chipboard Embellishment using off white for the body and black for the tires and steering wheel. 

Clear_Scraps_Home_Wood_Pallet2

Once the paint was dry, I  applied a thin coat of crackle paint over the body of the Tractor.  You won't notice the crackle effect until the next step. And this medium does take a bit longer to dry. 

Clear_Scraps_Home_Wood_Pallet3

My plan was to paint the tractor pink but my paint did not quite match my paper. So after applying the pink I  did add a coat of the off white to lighten the color.  You can see here the close up of the crackle. 

Clear_Scraps_Home_Wood_Pallet4

Using my Beacon,  I covered the Home Large Chipboard Embellishment with patterned paper.  I  then removed excess paper with an x-acto knife and sanding tool. I   adhered the letters with the same adhesive. 

Clear_Scraps_Home_Wood_Pallet5

I  added paper flowers from my stash to the back tire of the tractor as well as bow sticker from the collection I  used. You can also see enamel dots and chipboard plus signs for accent. 

Clear_Scraps_Home_Wood_Pallet6

I  also added a couple paper flowers to the "O" in my Home Chipboard Embellishment as well as some twine.  You can use a hole punch at the top of the pallet in order to hang your creation or leave as is!

Chris here and today I am excited to share this Spring-y home decor I created using Clear Scraps Mason Jar Medium DIY Pallet Shape. These pallet shapes are so fun to play and create with!

Start by painting your Clear Scraps Mason Jar Medium DIY Pallet Shape. I chose a bright and cheery turquoise-y color to coordinate with my papers.

DIY Shaker Camera Wood Sign

Clearscraps-woodshape-chipboard-sign-helengullett

Hello everyone... Helen is here today. I’d like to share this fun Shaker Camera Wood Sign that I made using the new Wood Shapes Per 3 Pak and Mini Shaker Camera. These are supen fun new products! There are more at the store, too!

I love taking pictures with my camera, especially my family pictures. When I saw this Mini Shaker Camera chipboard embellishment, I want to use it on this project along with my favorite quote.

First, the base I used is one of the new Wood Shapes Per 3 Pak. I covered the wood with the marble patterned scrapbook paper. I traced the wood on the paper and then cut it with scissors. I added it on the wood with Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue.

Clearscraps-woodshape-chipboard-sign1-helengullett.

I covered the top and bottom pieces of this shaker camera chipboard with white gesso and then silver metallic paint. I did it with my finger to get the random distressed look on the camera.

When the painted pieces dried, I stacked all the pieces using the Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue. When you work with shaker pieces, there is 2 pieces of clear plastic film on the protect the plastic piece ofthe shaker that you need to remove first before you add it on the chipboard. For the shaker filler, I used the mixed sequins I have in my stash. I put stackes of acrylic blocks to hold the pieces down while the glue drying.

Clearscraps-woodshape-chipboard-sign2-helengullett.

I used my digital stamps on for the quote and frame. I edited them on my computer using the Pixlmator Pro software and then print it with Cannon inkjet printer. I colored the frame with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Alcohol Marker. I fussy cut it with scissors.

I added the sentiment and camera on the wood with the same adhesive glue. If you don’t have the Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue, make sure your glue is strong, permanent and works on all surefaces, including wood.

This sign is now up in my craft room to remind me that there is hope for another shot in this life. So, don’t give up!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Come back again for more inspirations from the design team! Have wonderful day!

 


Hello Spring Pallet

Hola! Tami here to share another project with you.

Are you ready for Spring? Better be ‘cause it’s here! March 19 was the first day of Spring this year.

To celebrate the coming of Spring I'd like to show you how to create a decor piece using Clear Scraps Medium Square Pallet Shape and 2 of their stencils; Hello Spring and Doily Mat.

Clear_Scraps_Wood_Pallet_Stencil_Spring_Decor

I whitewashed the pallet, lightly sanded it, then added portions of the Doily Mat stencil to different parts of the pallet using white paint. Gel pens were used to add the design. 

When you look at a stencil, think about how you can use the parts differently. You can also flip some stencils over to change the direction of the design. For this project, I layered the flowers individually to create my designs.

Here is a short video that shows you how I made the sample piece.

 

My gel pens worked beautifully on the wood, but I would suggest that you try yours out on the back of the pallet. You could also use markers or ink to apply the designs. But make sure whatever product you are using will not bleed with the wood grain.

Supplies:

Clear Scraps: Medium Square Pallet Shape, Hello Spring and Doily Mat

Other: DecoArt: Translucent White Media Fluid Acrylic Paint, Kingart Glitter Gel Pens and Rhinestones

Tools: Paint Brush, Stencil Brush and File

Mason Jar Banner

May Flowers Mason Jar Banner by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Hi everyone!  It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a quick tutorial to make this bright and cheery mason jar banner perfect for spring decorating.  With three jars in this wood shape set, you can use it alone or buy multiples to spell out any name or phrase in the form of a banner or wall hanging.  I've been yearning for spring, so I thought I'd use my banner to wish for May flowers.

May Flowers Mason Jar Banner by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Painting

I started by sanding each jar shape with a sanding block, and then applied metallic champagne acrylic paint to the surface.  Once dry, I sanded the pieces again and applied a second coat of paint for a smooth, even finish.

May Flowers Mason Jar Banner by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Stenciling

Once the shapes were completely dry, I secured the capital letter stencils to each one with painters tape.  Then I applied teal glitter paste through the stencil with a palette knife, removed the stencil immediately when done to wash in soapy water, and allowed it to dry for at least an hour.

May Flowers Mason Jar Banner by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

Add silk flower bunches to the back of the jars with hot glue and then tie a bow with pretty ribbon around the neck of the jar to secure the flowers even more.  Punch holes on either side of the neck with a heavy duty hole puncher and string the shapes together using rustic twine.  Hang the banner on any wall to instantly cheer up the room!

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy springtime banner project and thanks so much for stopping by today.  How would you use the new triple wood shape sets to decorate your home?

~ Annie

Additional products used: metallic champagne acrylic paint, sanding block, foam paintbrush, painters tape, teal glitter paste, palette knife, silk flower bunches, hot glue gun, white organza ribbon, heavy duty hole puncher, rustic twine, 


Love Grows Wild

Happy Thursday Clear Scraps family. Leah here with you today sharing this cute spring home decor sign, and I couldn't resist using this chipboard Vintage LG Truck on the Rectangle Medium Wood Pallet.

Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I had started off painting this truck a bright fire-engine red, but it didn't work with this paper I wanted to use, so I ended up painting it this non-traditional pink, which makes me SO HAPPY. It sings spring to me!


Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I've been with Clear Scraps over 6 years now, so have quite the stash, and included in it are these awesome acrylic flower embellishments.


Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I ended up staining them with Alcohol ink and adding perfect pearls to create texture. I then just layered looooots of flowers behind the truck!


Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I love how bright and happy this home decor piece is. I think it will work as a wreath on the front door or right inside the entry way!
Truck_Wood_Pallet_LeahCrowe

I just want to take a minute and Thank Susan and Jim for allowing me to be a part of the Clear Scraps family for so long. I love their products and have believed in them since day one when I started on the Design Team. I will miss making projects and sharing them with you, but will always love and support this company. <3

DIY Spring Wood Pallet Sign

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring-helengullett

Hello everyone! Helen is here today. March is here and that means Spring is coming, too! It is time for a new home decor. 

I made this new Spring Wood Pallet Sign using the new Wagon Large Chipboard Embellishment and Rectangle 12x10 Medium DIY Pallet Shape.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring1-helengullett

To decorate the Rectangle 12x10 Medium DIY Pallet Shape, I measured the size of each pallet and then I trimmed a 12x12 scrapbook paper with paper trimmer into paper strips. Or you also can simply trace the wood pallet on top of the 12x12 scrapbook paper and cut with scissors.

I added each paper strip on the wood pallet with Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue. If you don’t have this glue, make sure you use permament strong adhesive glue that works on wood surface.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring2-helengullett

Next step is decorating the Wagon Large Chipboard Embellishment. I used heat embossing technique on this chipboard embellishment. It is easy and give some texture on the wagon, it looks like a painted wood wagon.

I applied the VersaMark ink all over the wagon chipboard surface.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring3-helengullett

And then, I sprinkled the white opaque glitter embossing powder (I have a bottle that I mixed the white embossing powder and iridecent glitter embossing powder). I cover the whole surface.

Clearscraps-woodpallet-chipboard-spring4-helengullett

And then, carefully I used my craft heater gun to heat set the embossing powder. Please, make sure your craft heater gun is warm enough to melt the powder, better pre-heat it for 15-30 seconds before. If not, you will blow some of the powder off when you go over the chipboard when it is still cool.

I did this embossing step three times to get the thickness that I wanted on the wagon and for the wheels I decided to use the black glitter embossing powder for the second and third layer.

When the embossing step is done, I adde the chipboard on top of the wood pallet with the Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive glue, and I held it down for a minute to make sure the glue dried well. I added a diecut flowers and leaves on the wagon to embellish it.

For the sentiment on the sign, I used cork letter stickers and I wrote the rest of the Bible verse with permanent marker brush.

I finished the wood sign with couple of those gold beaded butterflies that I added on the wood with the same adhesive glue. It is ready to be put on our mantle for Spring decor.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Make sure to come back tomorrow to see more inspirations from the design team. And... Check out more of the new products at Clear Scraps store that you will love to use for your projects!

Have wonderful day!
