Perfectly Clear Fall Colors Layout

Hello again friends what a beautiful fall we are having in Nashville, Tennessee this year (minus the drought), which made the Creating Made Easy November Kit all the more fun (as it is usually!) this time. 
I have a fun layout today that is completely clear Fall Colors Acrylic Layout using the November Kit.
If you would like to create this layout, I have step by step instructions. 
  • Using patterned paper from the November Kit (Creating Made Easy) punch out several 1" leaves using any fall leaf punch (I used one from my stash or a cutting machine would work as well).
  • Peel off the protective film from the Clear Scraps 12X12 acrylic sheet (only the front for now).
  • Trim out 12X7" piece of patterned paper as shown in photo. 
  • Adhere 12X7" paper to front of acrylic using Beacon adhesives. 
  • Trim out 4X6 matte using patterned paper from the kit. 
  • Adhere matting to paper as shown, add photo (trimmed to size).
  • Take paper punched leaves, adhere them down right had side. 
  • Take buttons(from stash or previous kits) and place them as shown amidst paper punched leaves. 
  • Add FALL COLORS sticker from the November Kit sticker sheet. 
  • Take gold 3/4" ribbon (from stash) and adhere under photo matting. 
  • Take "But I think I love Fall Most Of All" sticker and stick to a leftover scrap of patterned paper. 
  • Trim around stick leaving a 1/4"  edge. 
  • Using pop dots, add sticker on right hand side of photo as shown. 
  • Adhere a couple buttons to the left hand side of the ribbon. 
  • Using StazOn ink (from stash) or paint would work as well, and edge entire layout. 
  • Remove protective film from the back of the layout. 

Such a fun and easy layout when you break it down piece by piece, and I love acrylic layouts in my books, they are so unique and creative.
You could replace any of the stickers or sentiments wither choice from this packed kit!

Mustache Holiday Tree?! Hipster Fun Project

Hey there friends, I have kind of an unusual fun project to share for MOVEMBER- if you had not heard of Movember- it's really all about mustaches in November. 
I thought it would be fun to make a Hipster Holiday Tree and Card for one of my mustache fanatic friends to celebrate men's health. Such a great idea, why not have fun with it.
I wanted it to be masculine yet still shine for the holidays, so I painted the 3D Chipboard X-Mas Tree black then used metallic gold paint to stencil on the Mustaches Mascil/Stencil. Then I added black pearls.
For the card I used a black shimmer cardstock, that I fitted to the Acrylic Coaster and added 1" at the top for the border punch and fold over. 
It was a fun little kitchy project to create and perfect for November, I can't wait to see my friend's face, it is the holiday season and all sorts of decor goes, why not make it YOURS!
I hope you like my fun project today, happy November friends.
Until next time, keep on checking the Clear Scraps blog and mine for more project ideas, and keep checking back for even more new releases!

Blessed & Grateful Fall Card

Hey guys, today with one of my November kit projects, 
this fall themed "Blessed and Grateful" card that I created using 
the Blessings Chipboard Expression from the 
I started with a card stock base card (from my stash), 
and created a copper shimmer card stock cover using my own card stock, 
and then used the pretty maple leaf patterned paper for the front. 
I spray painted the Blessing Chip Word with gold metallic 
paint then lightly rubbed some brown 
StazOn on the word to bring out the texture. 

I also rubbed the StazOn ink along the edges of the card. 
I used the stickers from to kit to create the card itself and 
added the "and" from the letter stickers. 
This would make a great Thanksgiving Card for a family 
or best friend of course. The Blessed Chipboard 
would make a fantastic title on a layout, card, even a sun catcher, any thing  is possible.
Grab your kit while it's here!
Cannot wait for December and all the winter/Christmas CRAFTING!

Autumn Blessings Acrylic Box & Tag Album Set

Hey there friends it's Pinky today, I am so excited for FALL!
I have so many fun projects to share including this fun Clear Scraps Acrylic Box and the Chipboard Tag Album I created as the Feature Project for this month. The Creating Made Easy November 2016 Kit was an amazing kit to wok with, I love fall but also I LOVE the grateful side of the season, celebrating blessings, with family and friends. 

For this project I created a step by step tutorial that is included in each kit, I shared how I created everything from each tag to the box itself. 
I decided to turn the tags into a mini album that fits in the box, so I can proudly display it until after Thanksgiving.Each Tag includes room for a photograph, and I used an oil paint Sharpie in metallic gold as an accent color. 
The patterned paper from Reminisce are so cute, and these stickers, you are going to love!
This Creating Made Easy November 2016 Kit was just fabulous. 
Every Kit I receive I am amazed at how many projects I can create,and I always have leftover papers to play with and make extra cards or layouts. 
I hope you enjoyed my project today, I will be back with more this month!
Until next time, have a beautifully crafty day my friends. Here is a link to the kit so it is easily found.
