I Can See Clearly

Hey Guys!

I'm back again with another something that you may not have tried yet.
Clear Sheets!

Clear, acrylic albums and embellishments are still quite popular but many people are afraid of them.
Why not stop by The Shoppe and pick up a sheet or two to play with and you'll see just how amazing your projects can become with that little hint of transparency!

We have lots of pix here of samples for you to view . . . a Disney Album, a clear card, tags, and lettering. If you can think it, you can create it with these clear sheets!

We're starting you off with clear covers that we created using the lighter-weight of plastic which we cut on our Cricut machine and then embossed in a Cuttlebug folder.
After that we lightly sanded the embossing and inked the edge with Stayz-On Ink.

You'll need to use the deepblade on #6, set your multi-cut button to 2x, pressure on high, and speed on low.

Next are the letters, also cut on the Cricut but then we layered them with coats of Crackle Accents (that's from the last post!)

You can also run these sheets through your AccuCut, Sizzix and Cuttlebug machines. We used the heavier sheets for these tags & die-cuts, also inked with Stayz-On.

Then lastly, here is a clear card made with the heavier weight sheets. As you can see, the plastic is also score-able for folding cards, as well as thin enough to cut with your patterned scissors.

If you are lucky enough to be attending Heidi's class on June 26th, she'll also have an example along of an album she created using clear tags!

So don't forget to stop by The Shoppe to grab a couple of these to play with.
Then come back and show us what YOU'VE created!
