Talking the Talk

I have been talking up Clear Scraps for an entire week at CHA and I think I have my "speech" down's like a loop playing over and over in my head....all the great things you can do with acrylic in general and then on top of that, all the uber-cool things you can do with Clear Scraps acrylic because of it's flexibility.

This is the project that I talked about most at CHA - I really have to make more like this!!These Christmas Candy boxes are 12"x12" sheets of Clear Scraps XL acrylic, cut down to 12"x6" with my grey Fiskars paper trimmer, run through my Cuttlebug with the D'vine Swirls embossing folder, scored into a square or triangular box with my Scor-pal and then glued together at the back with Helmar 450 adhesive. Unbelievable. No one is more suprised that all of that worked, than I am :) Please don't try all that crazy stuff with just any old acrylic....some will crack and fracture when you cut them, or dent your embossing folders, or not score at all, or crack when you fold them. Not Clear Scraps.

Oh, and the rest of the project....the lovely-can't-get-enough-of-it Alpine Frost from SEI!!

Don't forget to let me know what your favourite CHA releases are and I'll enter your name to win some Clear Scraps acrylic! Here, or in the previous blog post - either one -I'll check them both!
