NEW CHA product

I'm telling you, Clear Scraps new release this year is AMAZING!
Like, I am seriously SO stinking excited about this,

One of my many favorites from this new release are the Printer Tray Frames!
You heard me correctly.
And let me say.

Look at how many opportunities you have for special ephemera, photos, etc.
I added sequins in two spots on this layout.

As well as adding in some stamping onto the acrylic protector. AND.. I made this to hang. SO fun to be able to put this on display.

Keep checking back here or on the Clear Scraps blog to see all the amazing goodies coming to you soon. I promise, you want to see it all!

Acrylic Keepsake Tray

I was up on the Clear scraps blog yesterday sharing one of the amazing acrylic boxes that Clear Scraps offers. This one is the Acrylic Keepsake Tray Box. Once hubby saw this on my desk this morning, he quickly exclaimed he needs some for his desk. So, they will make great gifts for any time of the year, and for most anyone on your hard to buy for list. 
I apologize for my poor picture quality, I just switched to a new laptop and haven't had a chance to install all my programs yet.

To start building this, which is super easy, peel off all the protect film from both sides of the acrylic.
I then cut pattern papers slightly less than the dimensions of the box. I adhered the pattern papers on the outside walls to hide the glue, and made sure to use double sided paper so there would be a design facing inside the box as well.

I then laid out the pieces as they would be adhered together, ready to go.
 If you look closely  you can see little notches protruding out further so they will fit into the holes on the base. When I used my Beacons 3-in-1 glue, I placed a thin bead of glue along the bottom line of the walls, avoiding the protruding notches. I did this to create more stability. The first two walls are the hardest, but after you have them all in, it stands up well. Then,  you will add the adhesive circles to the outside walls that come included with the box, which makes it extra sturdy.
Just place two circles on each adjoining wall at the top and bottom like above, and you are good to go. I let this dry and set for an hour or so before moving on. Grab a drink, watch a show, then come back to it. :)

Now I just added a few small embellishments and I now am the proud owner of a new Alcohol Ink storage tray. I use these so often, I have decided to leave them out on my desk.

Thanks for stopping in and have a WONDERFUL New Year!!

It's Here, its here, its HEREEEE!!!!

So, um yes.
I got mail today.
Glorious. HAPPY. Coloring. Mail!!!!
I was so excited to get this in print, that I took a pretty crummy photo.
I kid you not, this coloring book is at least a 1/2" thick.

I love that on the backside of the pages, there is a space that you can write who colored it, the date, and what type of medium you used to color it with.

 Geeeeked out. You see that? ^^^ Swoon.

And Kim was very generous with her Thank you page as well. She is a truly a wonderful lady, and is all about trying to help people. Check out her wonderful facebook group, Get Coloring, Get Happy, With Kim & Carling.

Thank you SO much Kim, I'm so happy I "met" you.

You can see what is included in the book here on youtube.
And if you wish to purchase, the book is here on Amazon.

And check out Lemur (Liam) he was happy with Mimi looking at the book.
