Clear Scraps

Clear Scraps exhibits at several of our Scrapbook Expo shows.  Susan Frase and her husband Jim are retailer, manufacturer, product development (and anything else for that matter) for their company.  Plus they are genuinely nice people and have a very talented design team.


Ask Susan any question about using acrylic; she knows the answer and will educate you along the way!


I met with Susan and asked her a bunch of questions; here is what she replied:


Where are you from? What are your roots?  I consider Wimberley, Texas as home. We moved a lot but Wimberley in where my heart is.
