My first CLEAR SCRAPS stuff!!!

Here is the first project I've made with my new Clear Scraps product. I cannot tell you how much fun this stuff is to work with. I started pretty simple - using Staz-on ink and punching holes for eyelets (remember them??) to tie the train cars together with ribbon. This train has magnet on the back so that it can go on the fridge (I didn't photograph it on the fridge b/c my fridge is black and it didn't show up.) I'm thinking this would make a cool baby gift....maybe with one of those metal magnet strips from IKEA??

ETA: this train was displayed at CHA and got picked up there for a book being published by Pinecone Press. I'm not sure of the book name - I'll add that when i find out.

My next project was one of the Great Mini-albums. This arrow album made me think of directions and since it's early in the year, I'm still considering what direction this year will take for me - what goals and "resolutions" I want to make. In this album I tried a little bit of everything - ink, rub-ons, stickers, stitching (rub-on, doodled and sewing machine), ribbon, flowers, brads (yes, right through the acrylic, pierced with a needle), paint, transparency overlays and lots and lots of glue dots!! Plus, hello.....Basic Grey - what could possibly go wrong with that?? :)

ETA: This album has been published and will be in June '08 PaperTrends!!

Thanks for looking! Stay tuned for more Clear Scraps stuff!!
