ClearScraps?

Ever see a scrapbooking product that you want to try, but can't get around to? Or you don't really know what to do with it...LOL! When the magazine sent me Clearscraps to work with last month, I was hit in the face with my fears! Like anything in life, it is all about how you look at it! Jump right in, take a risk, you might discover something. Yes, I can wax philosophical about anything...

Some projects that appeared in last month's issue!

First, a layout about my must-haves! I am a coffee addict! On the weekends, I live for that first cup and the computer (after I have hugged my kiddos for a bit). On Sundays, the whole ritual is enhanced with chocolate chip pancakes! Had to document it!

ClearScraps make these cool shapes! I turned the coffee set into a gift card holder! That seems to be my newest go-to project! I made the white sleeve to mock the sleeve they put around paper to-go cups!

Remove the sleeve and you have the sentiment and card!

Finally, I used four pieces of the clear acrylic banners to make this butterfly. I originally wanted a mobile, but it evolved into this! My daughter loves this, which makes me happy!


One of the many reasons I love the magazine! We just welcomed some new staff members and I can't wait for this upcoming year!

Quick reminder--The Nook has started the HUGE contest (Design Team openings as prizes), but it is not too late to join in! You have until the 10th, so pop over and check it out!

Off to watch General Hospital--I love it, huge cheese factor, major catastrophe every other day! One of my other great escapes! LOL! Hoping to scrap tomorrow--someone send me energy!
