Hi, Connie here with a couple of cards using the Mulberry Collection by Quick Quotes and some printable shipping labels I printed from my Canon iP8720.Canon so graciously provided printers to the Quick Quotes team for us to get creative with so, not to disappoint, lets get creative!
I really love how the ink on the shipping labels match the Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk inks on these two cards. Simply thrilled!!! Canon makes a great printer. Not only were these two colors printed out on the Canon iP8720, these were too. Every month the Quick Quotes team will show you ways of using a different Canon printer.
The iP8720 by Canon will print photos but is also a crafting printer. I hope to show you ways to get creative with the Canon printer.
The labels were cut apart and used in the design of the cards. The papers and inks worked great together. Card#1
Hi, Connie here with a cute idea using the Bucket Shaker by Clear Scraps. By using different embellishments the Bucket Shaker can easily become an Easter Basket. The Easter Basket is displayed on a vintage Easter book that was given to me by a friend. Super cute table center piece for Easter.
I used pattern paper on the inside of the Bucket Shaker (soon to be Easter Basket) and then painted the frame with acrylic paint. To achieve the crackle effect, apply crackle paint over the acrylic paint. When it is dry you will have a lush, vintage looking finish on the frame of the shaker.
The chipboard Easter word was given the same finish as the frame but a darker acrylic paint was used on the word. Both acrylic paint colors are in the pattern background paper of the shaker. The inside was filled with sequins by Clear Scraps.
In this photo you can really see the gorgeous crackle on the frame and chipboard word. I love the look!! Beautiful and so easy to achieve. It would love great hanging from an Easter Basket.

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using a XL Deco acrylic shape by Clear Scraps. These shapes are fun to make a scrapbook page from, just treat them like you would paper.
I have a tutorial on how this scrapbook page was created, using an acrylic shape.
Remove plastic film from the acrylic shape. With a sanding block rub up and down, on the surface, of the acrylic front. By doing this you are taking the shine off the acrylic. You should have a nice mat finish.
Wipe the surface with a damp towel and dry.
Stencil a pattern on the front of the acrylic shape, using the 6" Brick Wall stencil by ClearScraps. For best results use StazOn black ink.
Layer pattern paper to create a photo mat for the photograph. Glue the photo mat to the acrylic front using Beacon 3-IN-1.
I really love the frosty look, of the acrylic, by sanding it lightly. After the layering of paper, to create a photo mat, speckle the front with irRESISTible Texture Spray. It works great with acrylic.
Let dry. Add a 5" X 7" photo in the space that was created from layering the papers.
