Fun uses for Clear Cardstock for use in your Smashbook & Planner!

I'm having so much fun using the Clear Cardstock from Heartfelt Creations from Cut At Home

If you've been following the blog, last week you saw a birthday card I made using Clear Cardstock...well today, I'm sharing a clear divider page that I've added to my binder book! The sky's the limit on the designs you can make with this Clear Cardstock:

12x12Size-20121002134303 This Cardstock comes in both 12x12 & 8 1/2x11 and is much thicker then transparencies from an office supply store.

Here's how it looks in my binder:

This is so easy to do! Start with your foil paper. Cut them into 1/2" strips.

Lay them on your Clear Cardstock.

For mine...I used an extra gold strip as my guide. This gave me a perfect 1/2" space to lay between each piece. I placed my first strip down diagonally, then placed another strip as a guide to give me perfect 1/2" spacing. I then adhered down my second piece, placing it right up against my guide. I removed my guide, moved it down & placed my third piece where I wanted it, butting it up against my guide. This in the end gave me perfect spacing for all my pieces.

You want to use a double-sided adhesive. I recommend Angel Craft Tape. After adhering your pieces to your front page, cut off any excess that will hang over the edge.
Now, follow the same steps for the back. Just use your pieces you've already adhered on the front as your guide. Trim off the excess.

I also used some silver foil & cut out a chevron pattern from my Cameo Machine. You can do this with any dies you may have!

With my chevron piece, I cut the page to be slightly smaller in width, just to give my book variety! Just punch holes to add into your book!

I hope you give this a try! There's so much that you can use this Clear Cardstock for!
