Please email me at
sunnysanddollar@gmail.com to claim your Clear Scraps book from my stash! You even have a choice, so shoot me an email and we'll go from there. :)

Hope everyone is having a great week. I keep thinking of everyone at CHA and how they must be having a wonderful time. Wish I could have went with Clear Scraps but my foot couldn't have taken it. :(

I need to go to
Donna's blog and see if she's doing the flip phone videos like she did at CHA Winter this year (assuming she's at CHA now). Those are hysterical!

Have a great weekend!

What a terrific turnout it was! And because I received WAY OVER 40 comments (wow, I was blown away!), as promised I'm giving away a Clear Scraps album from my stash!

One more thing, I'll be uploading one last Clear Scraps sneak peek tomorrow, so stay tuned! It's a fun one and is JUST now being released! Brand spankin' new!
Soooo, using an online random number generator the two winners are #75 and #93...

120+ comments so far for the Clear Scraps Custom Wordbook giveaway (see below post)! Thanks to everyone who has stopped by for a visit thus far!! The turnout has been amazing! The deadline is July 13th @ midnight EST, so there's still plenty of time!

Several of you have asked questions and I've responded to many of you via email. I promise to get to the rest of them as well. Also, thanks to those who have shared their Clear Scraps projects with me! They've been fun to look at!

Also wanted to say thanks to any and all who have made my Clear Scraps die-cut album a place on Two Peas In a Bucket's "Top 10 Gallery Items by Votes"! I was over there tonight and couldn't believe another one of my projects made another Top 10 list! How fun!

Hope you're having a great week!

BIG RAK and another Clear Scraps Sneak Peek!

Okay, so I'm still working myself up to a "big fat post", but for now let's talk about the Clear Scrap's new Custom Wordbooks and the BIG RAK I talked about in my previous post...

As I've said,
Clear Scraps is releasing their *NEW* Custom Wordbooks (see examples of their pre-made Wordbooks here)at Summer CHA and seriously, it's an awesome idea! How many times have you wanted something that's made especially for you, especially if you're a scrapper. I know I have! Well, now you can! You can custom choose your word with a limit of 8 letters. If you choose 2 seperate words (keeping the 8 letter max. in mind) they'll include a spacer as well. Whether you'd like a Wordbook using your state, city or country's name, favorite vacation spot (Florida, Disney, Las Vegas, Bahamas etc), your child's name, a family last name, college, sports - whatever the case it's personalized for you or even someone else. What a fun gift for someone!

We'd love to encourage you to let your LSS owner know about these and ask them to stock them! It's a truly unique idea that's new to the scrap world and the fact that it's so custom is exciting!! Spread the word!

On to the RAK! Everyone has a chance to win! Leave me a comment and hey, if by chance you've scrapped a Clear Scraps project, link me! I've love to see! You don't have to have scrapped a Clear Scraps project to win though, just leave me a comment! Each person who leaves me a comment will be entered into a random drawing. One winner will be chosen to receive their very own CLEAR SCRAPS CUSTOM WORDBOOK (up to 8 letters of course)!!

You may only enter ONE time.

BONUS: If I receive 40+ comments, I'll do a second drawing and that winner will receive a Clear Scraps mini album from my own stash!

Comments will be accepted until Sunday July 13th at midnight EST. The Custom Wordbook will be shipped to the winner directly from Clear Scraps headquarters in Illinois.

So, let the commenting begin! :)

Allright, this is my last and final Clear Scraps sneak peek! Using 2 different designs of the *NEW* XL die-cut shapes (I cut them in half), I made this mini (or should I say medium!) album showcasing my love of Florida's Siesta Key and surrounding areas. All photographs were taken by me using a Canon 30d DSLR.

Keep in mind that Clear Scraps acrylic can be punched (super smoothly and always without a single crack!), sewn through using a regular sewing machine (see the front cover!) or hand-stitched, inked, alcohol-inked, hand-cut and more! It's the most durable, flexible acrylic out there!

Oh and by the way...the Clear Scraps
calendar I made was on Two Peas' Top 10 By Views list yesterday! YAY me and yay to my fellow scrappers (whomever you may be!) who have "viewed" it over there! Thanks! ;)

AND, last but DEFINITELY not least - a shout out to my super sweet friend,
Marjorie! Happy Birthay to you. Hope your day is as special as you are. ((HUGS))!

Okay, so you're still going to have to wait for the "big fat post". Cut me some slack, it's CHA season! ;) I WILL do it next week though. I've already started the draft, lol.

First and foremost, as I said it's CHA season so I have a few Clear Scraps projects to share with you (will share more later!)! I've linked a few of the releases and will link the rest once they're on the website. Clear Scrap's summer release is full of new goodies including:

Custom Wordbooks - you order the letters (up to 8) for the word you'd like as your book. If you'd like to do something like "My Boys" or "Fun Times" or whatever, they give you a spacer to use between words. Very cool!

XL Shapes - these are all between 11.5" - 12" (approx.) and come in a variety of shapes:
Funky Heart
2 different kind of brackets
Postage stamp
2 different die-cut shapes (one scalloped and one not - similiar to this shape as well one that has a scalloped-type edge- sorry, no official name this shape yet, but I LOVE it!)
And maybe even a couple more shapes. I don't have the complete list, sorry!
And last but not least, a standing frame (see calendar below) as well as an easel. So, lots to choose from and the XL size is awesome!

I made this clock using the XL circle shapes. There are 2 circle shapes back to back behind the clock as well as one covering the front. The only thing that is exposed is the hardware on the front.

For this project, I used a Clear Scraps Frame, I took all the tabbed pages from (3) 6x6
Tab Albums (12 pages total for the 12 months), punched holes in the frame (to use as a display stand) with my Crop A Dile and attached the rings and tabbed pages for a 12 month flip calendar! I'm happy with how this turned out and mostly because it's functional. I'm not much of an alterer because I don't care to have stuff hanging around. If it's functional, I'm happy. :)

This is how it started...all nekked and everything, lol.



NOTES - On the back of each calendar page for me to write notes/birthdays/holidays etc.


To make this layout, I used a pair of XL Brackets and a 12x12 acrylic sheet (it's a clear lo, not white). The photo is one that I took of one of the lifeguard towers on Siesta Beach in Siesta Key, FL.

That's it for now, but more to come! Stay tuned for a Clear Scraps RAK opportunity! Enjoy your Saturday!
