Anniversary Page with Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps

Hello and Welcome!

Clear Scraps products are new to me, but after working with them - WOW - I love them! They make pages come together effortlessly with amazing results! Check it out:

I had forgotten how stunning alcohol inks look on acrylic, like stained glass. It has a mixed media feel without all the mess and drying time.  Check out the before and after coloring:

Although this layout looks time consuming, it really was fast and easy. Here is my process:
  • Color Clear Scraps' XOXO Acrylic Layout frame with 4 colors of Ranger's alcohol inks & blending solution on a felt pad. Just dab it on. (Seriously, this just took a few minutes.)
  • Print 4 photos using Cannon's Selphy CP1200 printer. Trim to fit.
  • Cut a loopy border from Quick Quotes' Mulbury 103 and edge with Royal Blue PowderPuff Ink.
  • Attach Clear Scraps' frame, photos and border to Windsong 103 paper. (I used vellum adhesive to attach the acrylic frame.)
  • Die cut 2 large, 9 medium & 9 small flowers out of Quick Quotes' Mulberry 102 & 103. Edge with Royal Blue & Violet PowderPuff Inks. Layer, glue them together and add gem centers.
  • Adhere flowers and word phrases from Quick Quotes' Mulberry Quotes & Phrases sheet in 3 clusters around the page.
  • Add silver glitter letters to hearts for the title, and add journaling. Done! See, fast and easy.
One of the best things about this process is that you can customize everything to fit your photos. Look at how well the Clear Scraps' frame matches the Quick Quotes Mulberry papers and the photos!
