DIY BGE

Evenin All
 It's Glen here with a short but sweet post using the Best Glue Ever in a new way never before seen on this blog! I and my Chris are slowly making our house over after the passing of our parents last year. I thought it was time to put a new chrome soap dish so after a trip to Lowe's I happily set about the task. When I was done I was upset by the fact that when you touched the dish it moved!

 You can imagine how annoyed I was at this but I couldn't tighten it too much as I didn't want to crack the acrylic bath enclosure. then I thought that instead of using sealer like my dad did years ago which was almost impossible to remove. So I decided to use the Best Glue Ever and after putting it level I ran a bead on the upper back side and after a wiggle in both directions, I wiped off the excess thus pushing deeper into the recess, and after truing up to the wall I let it dry for a few hours.

ScraPerfect's DIY Altered Tin Can Holder using Best Cleaner and Glue Ever

 
 


 
     Good Morning Y'all!
 
          Today this weeks project share is a Tin Can/ office supplies holder.  I first got this idea from Xannero1 on Youtube. So I made one right after I had seen her project and I put mine on one of those spice rack turners. You can find one at a local grocery store, pretty inexpensive.  My friend came over the other day and saw it and asked me if I could make one for her boss, she said she didn't have a lot of room on her desk, if I could make her a smaller one. So I let her go into my can stash and see what papers she wanted to use and cans. Here are the steps of  how I made this one for her boss.
 
1. First , I washed them in the dishwasher. Then,I used my ScraPerfect Best Cleaner ever and sprayed the cans on the outside to get the left over glue gunk that the labels were stuck too. Let it sit for 10 min. and then used a small nail brush and scrubbed most of it off and set aside to dry.  I apologize I don't have a picture because I originally was making a tutorial video and then the battery pack broke. So after that I had to use my camera. 
 2. Then I applied two coats of white gesso to the top edges of the can as shown below.

3. While the gesso was drying I cut my papers to fit the cans. I measured each one with a sewing tape measure to get the circumference then I cut the papers with my paper cutters.
Then I distressed them with Tea dye stain.

4. The cans were dry and then I was able to use washi tape on the the edges. Now washi tape doesn't stick so well so I use my Best Glue Ever to make sure it adheres on to the can properly. I did this by using a small amount of Best Glue Ever on the lip and outter edge and inner edge and then make sure tape is in the middle of the lip and fold down on both sides as shown below.


 
 


5. For the final steps add Best Glue Ever on the inside and align the canvas paper on the inside and then hold down and mold it into place. Then on the outside again place the Best Glue ever on the outside and then lay paper down and smooth with your hands or bone folder. Then add on your embellishments.
 
 

6.  I almost forgot, the most important part, I added Best glue ever to the inside of the ribbon on the darkest part, not the sheer part or it will bleed through.  I made small tiny glue dropplets all on the top and bottom pink silky part of the ribbon, wait 5 to 10 min to dry clear and then I tied it on and used my bone folder to get it into the corners. Then Voila!! Its all done!

Thank you for letting me share my project with you. I hope to see yours too if you decide to make one of your own. Have a wonderful crafty week! Huggles. If you would like to see my other projects please check out my youtube and other social media sites :)

The Best Glue Ever for Pocket Embellishments


Who loves pocket page scrapbooking? I do!

I love filling my pockets with all sorts of cool things, in addition to all the cards that are out there.  However, it does bring new challenges in using and adhering embellishments.  Your pocket pages will get more abuse in an album than an album filled with traditional scrapbook pages because those seams act like mini hinges. The pocket page protectors will tend to flop around more.

One way to ensure your pages stay intact is to use the Best Glue Ever - especially for your embellishments.  Here's two ways I like to use it with my page protectors.

First -- adhering "floating" embellishments.  I like the look of loose items inside a pocket, but loose items often don't stay inside the pocket.  Since the Best Glue Ever dries clear, I use small drops around my embellishment and adhere it to the inside of the pocket.


On this wooden embellishment I placed a series of small drops around the circle. I then used my finger tip to wipe the glue flat.  It dries quick and tacky, which lets me slide it carefully inside a pocket.


The glue wasn't 100% dry yet (I'm impatient), but you can see how clear it is from the back.  Now my heart can float inside the circle freely, but the circle won't leave the pocket.


The second way is to glue items directly to the outside of a pocket, such as flair.  Flair tends to be bulky and heavy (as far as embellishments go), so I usually add a bit more glue to the back.


Once the glue has dried (clear and tacky again),  I can place my flair directly on the outside of the pocket.  The Best Glue Ever is strong -- the flair won't budge. Or fall off.

Binder Lettering

Hello All
 It's Glen here with a project for making the stamp binders a little easier to identify and save time at the same time. I did this once a year or two ago but now I'm seriously trying to label my albums of which I now have many.

 I start by laying out grunge lettering so I can see how they will fit in the layout. Then I begin by using the Best Glue Ever to apply a small amount to the back of each letter and placing it on the binder. I also use the the No-Clog Writing Cap to pinpoint the placement of glue so there's no waste.

Any Occasion Male Card

Good Morning ScraPerfect friends! Chelsea here to share an any occasion male card with you. Let's jump right into the creation.  
Materials Needed :

Best Glue Ever
Perfect Carfting Pouch
Cardstock
Stamps 
Old release paper from sticker or labels
(Best Cleaner Ever - optional)


Step 1:  Preparing for Stamping. To prepare for stamping an image on cardstock you will want to take the Perfect Craft Pouch and swipe it across the cardstock. This will allow the ink to adhere and also dry quickly without any smudging. Once this part of the process is completed, it is time to go ahead with inking up the stamps and stamping normally. Don't forget, once finished stamping use the BCE to clean the stamps right away to ensure no staining will come to the stamps.


Step 2: Gluing Layers. To glue all the cardstock layers together spread a small even amount of BGE to each layer. Stick the cardstock layer while the glue is still white and wet. This allows the glue to have a small window of movability into the correct place if not satisfied after the first placement. 
Step 3: Creating Glue Spots. If you want to pop a few layers of this card as shown, you will need to create glue spots. Use a spare or kept piece of sticker release paper. squeeze a large amount of glue into round shapes. Depending on how thick or thin the glue is applied to the release paper it will take various amounts of time to dry. The glue spots pictured here took just under a hour to be completely clear. Now the glue spots are ready! They will peel off just like any other branded glue spots. With a strong bond and being universal you can create whatever size spot you need depending on the project you are working on.



Step 4: Assembling the card. The background layers were glued together and then adhered onto the card base. The rectangle in the center of the card had the layers glued together and then the glue spots were used to pop it off the card. The two strips under the center layer are also popped using the glue spots.

The Best Glue for Embellishments



What's the best way to add embellishments to a project? Use the Best Glue Ever! The fine tip lets you make thin lines and tiny dots to add hard-to-adhere items such as ribbon and sequins.

On this layout I wanted to add a ribbon separating two pieces of pattern paper.  I used the Best Glue Ever to make a thin line on my paper and let it dry until tacky.  Once it was tacky I added the ribbon for a completely no-show adhesive.  The glue will never bleed through your ribbon.



And the fine tip lets you add tiny dots easily to your project.  I placed dots around my layout where I wanted to add sequins. 


Just one tiny dot is all you need to hold your embellishment.  Here's my finished layout -
