Clear Scraps and Stampendous Hop...

For today's project I created a Busy Book to keep little ones entertained. I've had an idea to create a Busy Book with a Clear Scrap album for awhile now, but once I started flipping through my Stampendous stamps for the Stampendous Clear Scrap Week the ideas started flowing. 


Clear Scraps Acrylic Wave Album became the base for my project. I used Stampendous Cling The Look to create a braiding page.


The hair is embroidery floss that has been dyed with alcohol ink refills. I created bundles of hair and adhered them to the top of the scalp with Fabric Tac. 


The next page is a woodland forest scene for kids to play with. The stamps have been stamped on paper and adhered to chipboard for stability. I die cut the stamped animals out. Additional animals were die cut from magnetic sheet and adhered to the chipboard animals. My original plan was to have magnetic sheet behind the forest scene so kids could play directly on it, but the magnetic sheets were not powerful enough to hold the animals with pattern paper between the two. Time for Plan B... kids can play with the animals in the forest scene and then store them on a magnetic sheet on the adjoining page. 


For the next page, I adhered the pattern paper behind the acrylic so the page can become a wipe-off board to pratice ABC's. Wipe-off markers easily wipe off the acrylic. 


Adjacent to the Practice ABC's page is a Lace Up page. I cut two 1 inch by 4 inch pieces of acrylic from Clear Scraps Blank Sheet. I sanded them and punched holes down the sides. I adhered both pieces down with tape, leaving a slight gap behind the two pieces. Thread a piece of thin ribbon through the  holes and lace. 

Supplies Used:
