New Clear Scraps Clear Acrylic Albums and Chipboard Albums:Sandcastle shaped albums by Clear Scraps are BREATHTAKING! So fancy and beautiful! Doesn't just looking at them inspire you? I can think of so many ways to use them! They are available in 2 surfaces- clear acrylic, and raw unfinished chipboard. If you buy one of each, you can mix and match them for a huge variety of effects. I think these albums would be the perfect way to showcase honeymoon photos, beach vacation photos, or even wedding photos if you get married at the beach or in some tropical location. You really couldn't ask for a prettier album!
New Albums For City Slickers!Out of all the new CHA goodies I've seen so far, these spectacular City Skyline shaped albums are some of the most creative new products I've seen yet. They are just so cool! Whether you're a city dweller or you took a fun vacation in the city, you're sure to find a multitude of uses for these clever albums. Again, you can mix and match the chipboard and acrylic albums together if you wish, or you can use either album separately.

Chipboard Owl Scrapbook Album:Clear Scraps design team member Elisa Kammerdiener has created this amazing scrapbook album she calls "Knock Knock Whos There?" with the new Clear Scraps owl-shaped clear acrylic album.
The New Version of the "All Mixed Up" Album: U-Turn Albums:You probably remember the "All Mixed Up" albums that were part of a prior Clear Scraps product release. Those were very pretty and feminine. Well, the U-turn album is a very similar concept with different styling. This version is even more versatile and could be used for either masculine or feminine projects; it would be very suitable for using these albums for sports themed albums, school photos for your kids, and many other types of projects. I got myself a couple of these and I am thinking of using them for scrapping my husband's mountain biking photos. Check back soon because I will be sure to post them if the album turns out well!

New Clear Scraps Clear Acrylic Mini Keychain Albums!Another fabulous new product line- the Clear Scraps minis! These are all so tiny and cute- they each measure less than 4 inches and they'll fit in the palm of your hand. You can use them to create a really mini mini album to take with you everywhere you go. You know how popular and trendy purse charms and cell phone charms have been...well, you can attach these basically anywhere you would put a purse charm, and these are a big improvement over your typical purse charms because with these you can put photos of your loved ones in the album and keep them close and easily accessible to you at all times. I think these are going to be a huge hit- the latest trend in scrapbooking. I'm going to be getting one to match each of my handbags and purses. There's a fantastic variety of shapes to choose from so I think you will have no problem finding one that suits your style.
Clear Keychain Mini Album Project Idea:Clear Scraps Design Team Member Elisa Kammerdiener has created an adorable heart-shaped mini album with one of the new minis. Check it out!
The Brand New Clear N Chip Line by Clear Scraps:Clear Scraps has 2 specialties: Scrapbooking supplies made using clear acrylic, and products made using raw unfinished chipboard. Here for the first time you get some of both when you buy products from the new "Clear N Chip" line! I really think you are going to love these! With each Clear Scraps "Clear N Chip" purchase, you get 12" x 12" sheets of pre-cut shapes ready to pop out and make the cutest little mini-albums. Clear N Chip comes packaged with one sheet of chipboard and one sheet of acrylic together for mixing and matching. For those of you who have been hesitant to try creating an entire clear acrylic album, this is the perfect way to ease into it; you get the chance to try some clear acrylic but combine it with a contrasting surface you are probably already used to working with. I tried one and CAN'T WAIT to do a few more!
For Coffee Lovers: The "Carol Clear N Chip" Set by Clear Scraps:Clear Scraps design team member Kathy Northup has shared this creative project using the Carol Clear N Chip set. She transformed the cups into Java cups and made a coffee themed album. Starbucks lovers, take note! This is some serious inspiration for those of you who want to document your coffee habit. Thanks for sharing, Kathy.
Hearts, Scallops, and Pretty Girly Things: The "Abbey Clear N Chip" Set by Clear Scraps:Kathy got to play with this fabulous Clear N Chip set too, and she combined it with pretty Love themed papers from the Romance collection by American Crafts.
"Molly" Tabbed Mini Book Clear N Chip Set by Clear Scraps:mini album called "Bits & Pieces". You can click here to see more photos of this mini album plus a supply list and details about how it was created. Hope it will inspire you!
"Amy Clear N Chip" Fashion Themed Set by Clear Scraps:Do you (or your little ones) have a passion for fashion? Well if so, you can use this cute fashion themed clear acrylic and chipboard set to document it! Just punch out the clear and chipboard album pages and shapes, embellish, and add your favorite photos- whether it's pics of your kids in their Easter Sunday best, photos of your teenagers at prom, pics of your kids playing dress up, photos of you and your girlfriends shopping, or photos of you and your husband / boyfriend / friends out on the town, this set is a great way to showcase them. I think you are going to be delighted with it! Designer purse albums are really popular right now, and this set is a great way to create your own designer purse album. If you want to create a purse shaped album, you can use the purse shapes included in this set as the covers of the album. Of course, you can arrange the pages any way you like, so you don't have to use the purse shapes as the covers if there's a different way you'd rather put the album together. It's totally up to you.
Mixing and Matching Multiple Clear Scraps Products!So by now you're probably thinking that these new Clear N Chip sets look pretty versatile, right? Well, guess what...the possibilities are even more endless when you mix and match them together! And you can even mix and match them with the new Clear Scraps Minis too! How cool is that? Check out what Clear Scraps design team member Laura McCollough has created with hers! She took bits and pieces from different Clear Scraps products: a Clear N Chip set plus pages from various mini acrylic keychains to create this stunning mixed up mini album called "L is 4 Love". Laura used her Zutter Bind It All Machine to create the binding of her mini album.
Ace Clear N Chip Set by Clear Scraps:So far, the Clear N Chip sets I've shown you have been pretty "girly" (with the exception of the Coffee cups, which is pretty gender-neutral), but here's one that is ALL BOY! So if you are looking for a masculine set, here you go.
