Clear Scraps strikes again!

It's that time again! I'm back with a few Clear Scraps projects!

This first one is a layout that I scrapped on a Clear Scraps 12x12 Blank Acrylic Sheet. I love how it changes what would have been an ordinary cardstock layout into something completely fresh and new!

There's also a Clear Scraps Scalloped Circle Frame shape that I covered in Magic Mesh. I love Clear Scrap's shape assortment! And talk about versatility!

Acrylic: Clear Scraps 12x12 blank acrylic sheet
Patterned paper: Basic Grey Sultry
Stickers: Basic Grey Elements
Clear shape: Clear Scraps Scalloped Circle Frame
Magic Mesh (Forest Green)
Adhesive: Zip Dry, Glue Dots & AdTech tape runner
DMC floss (brown)
Alphabet stickers: American Crafts
Machine stitching
Misc brad (small)

This is a quick card I made by running a piece of the Clear Scraps 12x12 Blank Acrylic Sheet through my Sizzix using a tree die. To add color to the acrylic, I inked the trunk and leaves with StazOn ink. Drys quick and gives the acrylic a pop of color!

Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Pheobe
Ribbon: May Arts Satin Reversible Ribbon
Ink: StazOn (Timber Brown, Cactus Green)
Alphabet letters: Basic Grey
Adhesive: Tombo Mono Liquid Glue, Adtech tape runner

Last but certainly not least - a Clear Scraps Dog Bone Album. How cute is the shape of this? And again, the sizes of the different Clears Scraps albums are so generous! This album is 5" x10"! Plenty of room for full sized photos, patterned paper and all the funsies!

This album is centered around my husband and I's 8 year old Pug, Beijing. She's such a fun part of our very tiny family! :)

Beijing Ling are so much a part of our little family! You are a true and loyal friend and you love to be around us! Whether you're out barking on the porch, smelling or eating my potted herbs, you love the outdoors! Taking a walk (and even the mention of the work "walk") makes you so happy! Even when we're playing games you want to be a part of our fun. I mean really...who knew a pug could play Rummy?

You and your sweater do not get along very well. From the minute I brought it home you fought that thing with all that you had. Of course I thought it was the cutest little dog sweater ever! It's taken a few years but now I can get it on you without much fuss! And thanks to you, I always have a willing subject to practice my photography skills on! You are the queen of this house!

Thank you for...
Never judging me
Protecting me
Always being happy to see me
Laying under my chair
Always comforting me when I'm sad
Following me wherever I go
Listening to me w/an open heart
Making me feel so loved!

If you've recently tried a Clear Scrap product, I'd love to hear from you and how your experience was!

Hope the spring season is upon you, wherever you may be! Our boulevard is lined with gorgeous trees popping with huge bouquets of white and pink blossoms! The grass is sooo green and we've already mowed three times. I am ready to get out with my camera and capture the beauty of the season!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
