Minibook Help With ScraPerfect


Putting together this minialbum would be a lot harder without ScraPerfect.  I'm using vellum, transparencies and wooden embellishments -- not the easiest to adhere or stamp on for that matter.  This page is an adhesive's worst nightmare -- transparent elements on a transparent background.  How do you glue something without your adhesive showing?  Use the Best Glue Ever!

I like the translucent quality of vellum and I thought these feather stamps from Dark Room Door would be fun to use as embellishments. To help me stamp onto vellum I first treated the vellum with the Perfect Crafting Pouch. The Perfect Crafting Pouch helps the ink grab onto the vellum and give a better impression.


Once I'm done stamping, I use the Best Cleaner Ever with my Perfect Cleaning Cloth to clean my stamp. I keep one cloth just for stamp cleaning.


Once the ink had dried I cut out the feathers all I need to adhere them to my page is a couple of drops of the Best Glue Ever. I like to use my fingers to smooth out the glue on the back of the vellum for an invisible hold.


And the Best Glue Ever is also my favorite glue for wooden embellishments.  Like the feathers, I applied some glue around the letters, then smoothed it out with my fingers, since my page is transparent. 


Just perfect!

Remove Sticker Residue - Best Cleaner Ever

Hi ScraPerfect fans, Michelle back again with a quick tip to getting sticker residue off of a cake pan.  This will work on other surfaces as well and is a quick and easy way to get the left on stuff from price stickers at the store.


I removed the sticker, but there is still that sticky part left stuck to the  pan.  


I sprayed a generous amount of the Best Cleaner Ever and rubbed over the spot a bit with my finger.


I let it set for a few minutes and came back and gently scrapped the sticker residue with my finger nail.  At this point it peels off easily.  


After I got the tag off, I put one more spray of the Best Cleaner Ever and again gently rubbed with my finger.  I gently scrapped any little bits of excess residue and then rubbed clean with a paper towel.  Easy and safe.

Thanks for looking!
Michelle

Paper Project : Baby Girl Greeting Card

Good Morning! Chelsea here with a cute little baby girl card! This was such fun to make and it features many products from ScraPerfect! Let's get started!


Materials Used 

- Best Glue Ever
- Best Cleaner Ever
- Perfect Crafting Pouch 
- Embellie Gellie 

To begin using my Crafting Pouch I swept the textured base of my card to ensure my stamping would adhere cleanly. I absolutely LOVE how easily the Crafting Pouch allows you to stamp on virtually any material with ease.


What a beautiful and professional job the Crafting Pouch allows you to do with no smudges, or partial prints. Clean stamp prints every time!


  As you see I did get some ink on my crafting mat. I was using Stazon ink. We all know how hard it is to remove Stazon but with the Best Cleaner Ever in just MOMENTS my craft mat is clean and ready to go! Incredible!



The Best Glue Ever is simply amazing because you can apply it to any material without having to use different  glues. It makes creating any project quick and easy. 

Let me show you a couple of ways I used the BGE for this baby card. 

First I applied a small dab in the middle to adhere my two flowers together, as well as the gem for the center.



BGE is perfect to apply to all paper types; even vellum as it dries clear! Using a sponge applicator I spread the glue thinly across the back of the vellum accent. 


Ribbon can be tricky to hold in place due to its weight but with the BGE its a breeze! Apply, let dry clear and adhere! Bonds tightly! 


Glitter! We all know how tricky glitter can be to apply and talk about those glitter glues that take hours to dry! With BGE applying glitter is as easy as 1, 2, 3 and it dries in minutes.


Using all products from ScraPerfect this card was created easily, without having tools, glues or cleaners piling up on the crafting table. 4 products with a multitude of uses! Grab your supplies today from www.scraperfect.com! 


Thanks for joining me! Happy Wednesday! 

Chelsea :)

Love your Decisions

Good morning ScraPerfect friends, Steph here today with a quick card using the Best Glue Ever and the Embellie Gellie.




After creating my card, I realized it needed some embellishing.  The teardrop die is pretty, but a little plain.  I placed little drops of the Best Glue Ever in each teardrop spot.  Since the Best Glue Ever has a long drying time, I had plenty of time to add my dew drops before the glue dried.




The Embellie Gellie is perfect to use to pick up the dew drops and place them  on my card.  Love how easily the Embellie Gellie makes it easy to create amazing projects.


 
 
Don't forget to check out all the ways these wonderful products can be used.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.

Stamping on Non-Traditional Surfaces



I took my daughter to a JoAnn's to pick out fabric for a sewing project and discovered some cool EK Success products, including these wood veneer sheets. And the label said they work with punches. Sold!


But wood isn't a standard stamping surface, is it? To help the ink grab onto the surface, I treated the entire sheet with the Perfect Crafting Pouch before stamping.


A word of warning: this surface isn't totally flat! You're going to have the grain show through your image. I kinda liked the distressed look I got. 


And it did work with punches (well, most of them). I found that the EK Success and Stampin' Up punches worked really well. Fiskars, well.... not so much. These will make really cool embellishments for my projects.

I decided to add a couple to some of my Project Life pages.  Here's the start of my July pages where I've used it on two different page protectors (Design H and Design A). I like coordinating products between pages where you can see the overlap.  I'll be adding photos in the 8.5x11 protector that's in the middle; right now it's only holding a souvenir coin.


I think this technique would be great for summer themes, camping, outdoors and travel. What would you use them for?
