Free Spirit - Paper Challenge

Over at Creative Scrappers, there is an "ugly paper challenge" to encourage us to use our papers that we bought and now wonder why. Well, luckily this challenge also includes what we consider to be "difficult" paper, paper we are not sure how to use. I certainly don't think that my paper is ugly, but I have been hoarding this basic grey paper for a looong time since I didn't really know what to do with it. I typically prefer a more subtle patterned paper so I find "busy" patterned papers to be challenging. I am really happy with how this turned out!!

Create your own clear embellishments *TUTORIAL*

Hello! I wanted to share a tutorial I did for JuJu Bee's Scrapbook Corner.

I just love using all the fabulous clear/acrylic products on the market but sometimes I can't find exactly what I need, so I am going to show you how I make them myself at home!

The first step is to save the clear plastic packaging that many products come packed in. What a great way to recycle as well:-)

One easy and fast way to make your own clear embellishments is to simply punch it out.

Another way to create a shape is to draw it and cut it out.

If you have a die-cut machine, that is another option. In this example, I used my cuttlebug and just used the clear plastic in place of paper to create my butterfly.

You can even emboss your clear die-cut after!

Another option is to use stamps with Staz-On inks and then cut the image out.

Here are all the embellishments cut and ready for use! I used the large clear butterfly on my layout HERE.

Have a wonderful day!
