Clear Scraps blog hop

Hello all. Today all the designers are going to share some of the new releases Clear Scraps will show off at the upcoming CHA winter at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

If you happen to stumble upon my blog and want to see where fun started, hop on over here.

Our Love Story

my share today is a mini I made with the fun wavy acrylic album. I also used an acrylic arrow in the front of the book which I ran it on my embossing machine for the dot emboss design and painted pink on the edges.


I love how just the wavy edges of this book already helps you feel some fun and spontaneity even before you learn of the theme of the album. There's so many possibly themes you can do with it. With mine, I used a love theme.
For the front, I used some flowers to hide my adhesive and also a scallop trim from Cosmo Cricket.


I had some BoBunny papers that fit the bill and it had just the right sizes and amount of papers that will complete the book in a snap.


For the album, I wanted to show some of the Acrylic beauty so I painted the edges pink and cut my papers into 6" squares so you can see the clear aspect of the book in the edges.


Also added some flowers and journaling blocks on each page.


I left the book blank (no pictures and words) for the trade show but after I get this back, I'll fill it up some photos of me and hubby.


A few more flowers and papers and the back was finished off.

So there you have it. I'm the last one on the list of designers. From here you can go back to the Clear Scraps blog.

Make sure you comment on every DT's blog post and at the Clear Scraps blog to be in the running to win for a give away of one of the new cast acrylic products.

Thanks for stopping by.

Till next time,
Grace

Sylvia Weaver Rivera said...

I love that album!!! So many wonderful design elements!!
You were able to run the acrylic arrow through an embossing machine to get that dot emboss design? How were you able to do that? And what kind of emboss template and machine did you use? Because I would love to do the same!! I must be out of the loop with embossing machines that can emboss on acrylic. LOL!
If you have some time would you email me with the info.
