     Hi Y'all,
 
          I am so excited that Spring is almost here!! Can you believe it?   I know a lot of families are getting ready for Spring Break Vacation and I thought this was the perfect time to use my "Come Away With Me" Paper line from Graphic 45.  So I pulled out my 8x8 paper pad, my Embellie Gellie and Best glue Ever some Wooden Embellishments from SaCrafters and a few small flat back pearls and went to work.  Below I have a step by step Process video on not only how I made this note card holder but also how ScraPerfect's products go hand in hand with almost any crafting project that you make.  I hope you like my project, it was super fast and easy to make when you don't have a lot of time on your hands.  These would be great to sell at a craft fair or give to a family member, friend or teacher with some small 3x3 cards to go in the box.  Have a fabulous Spring Break!!
XOXO ~ Kimmy

Custom Made Dividers for Craft Storage Container

Good Morning ScraPerfect Friends! Chelsea here to share a project I am working on. I am creating a custom craft storage container. It is a recycled fishing tackle box which has no dividers. I decided to turn this into my ScraPerfect Storage Container. It will hold all the products neatly and easily but the storage container itself needed a crafty touch.


Today I am going to show you how I created my easy custom dividers. I borrowed a plastic divider from another container and traced it onto a piece of cardboard as many times as I could, until the cardboard was completely full. I am recycling used cereal boxes for this project. You will require two cardboard cut outs of your traced plastic divider for each crafted divider you are making.

Once the plastic divider has been traced onto the cereal box, cut out each traced piece. Using the printed side of the cardboard I apply the BGE thinly on only one of the two cut outs needed to make each individual divider. If you are not using a cereal box and your cardboard is plain on both sides it does not matter which side of the cardboard you place the BGE on. Next attach two of the cut outs together directly on top of each other. One piece with BGE on and one without. Give this a few minute to dry.


 To add a crafty feel I use washi tape as an accent on the custom made dividers. 



Watch the progress of this revamp project through the month of March as I transform this drab looking fishing tackle box into a useful craft storage container for all my ScraPerfect products.

Assembling embellishments

Hi ScraPerfect friends, Steph Ackerman here today.

Do you ever try to adhere glitter paper together and find they constantly fall apart?  Well if you use the Best Glue Ever, that will never happen.  It's super strong and dries clear.


 
I've created a bunch of embellishments and used the Best Glue Ever on all of them. 


 
For all those little bits, including the skull's eyes, the Embellie Gellie works great.  It picks up all those tiny pieces so you can glue them in place.
 


So remember to pick up the Best Glue Ever and use it when working with glitter paper.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.

Create your own! by Brenda Crouch

Hi everyone, Brenda here with another Design Team Project to share. How many times have you been in the middle of a project and wanted a certain colored embellishment to finish that creation and of course didn't have it, or it's just not available? If you are like me, it happens frequently, but, with a few of Scraperfects products, you can create your own easily and quickly.

 

I started with Scraperfect Best Glue Ever, Scraperfect Foil Pack, a couple of gold metal star brads and a gold heart metal brad.

 
All you need to do, is coat those brads with Scraperfect Best Glue Ever. Be sure to use a nice heavy coat. It will go on milky and once dry with be clear.
 
 
Don't get in a rush...make sure the glue is entirely dry/clear. Actually it won't be 'dry', rather it will be extremely tacky and sticky.
 
 
Ok, now they are ready. Choose your foil color, I needed some nice strong rich blue embellishments, so I chose this beautiful blue foil.
 
 
I've already done one, as you can see, there is a blank star pattern in the foil where I already used it. I am now pressing the foil onto the next star brad and rubbing with my finger.
 
 
VOILA! Here is the second finished blue foiled star! Perfect!
 
 
So, I now have two perfectly colored brads that I will use on my creation. There is plenty of foil to use on many other projects as you can see.
 
 
My beautiful blue foiled heart brad that is now ready to use.
 
Scraperfect Best Glue Ever and Scraperfect Foil pack are two invaluable items to have in your stash ladies to create your own colored embellishments. You are only limited by your own imagination and the possibilities are endless.
 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you share your creations you make with these products.

Secret Garden Wall Art


 Evenin All
 It's Glen here with a new project that actually started months ago. I took a 12 x 12 plain wood square and painted it white and when it was dry put a sheet from the Secret Garden collection inside using the Best Glue Ever and put it aside. Then I got an idea to make it two dimensional by adding a second layer at the bottom.



 Then using some cut pieces of bass wood I used little dots of BGE to adhere the pieces and create a kind of pocket that could be used to put seed packets or coupons in for the garden center. When they were dry I added my fussy cut second layer to the bottom and got busy with Tim Holtz Distress Markers to add details.

Artist Trading Cards Design Team Project by- Kim Murray (AKA Fattypaddyscrapper)





 
Hi Y'all,
Today I wanted to share with you my most recent ScraPerfect Design Team Project.  In making these Artist Trading Cards, was able to put them together pretty fast with the help of my ScraPerfect stash.  I will go into some detail of what I used and how I used these items in my project.  For gluing all my paper, chipboard and wood, flower, grass, glitter and lace embellishements using Best Glue Ever.  I always use it sparingly. A little goes a long way, trust me :)  When it came to using my pearl flatbacks I was able to lift them easily with Embellie Gelli. Using the Embelli Gelli I am able to pick up tiny pearls with ease.  Before I do any stamping or glitter effects I use my Perfect Crafting Pouch.  The Pouches special powder gives inks a more clear and precise stamp and for the glitter this little Pouch will become your best friend. I swipe the entire card once and then apply glue, then glitter my heart away. Once I am finished, I tap off the excess and there is no glitter where I don't want it to be. It stays only in the area where I applied my glue. Isn't that amazing?? I know I hate it when glitter gets out of control.  Now I just need Amy to come up with a giant pouch for my floors in my craft room so that the glitter doesn't stick there either, lol.  I really enjoyed making these ATC Cards for my swap partner Renae in Mini Album Swaps and more. :)
I hope you will find the time to watch my video below.  This video goes into a little more detail of how I made my cards and how I used my products to make this a super fast and easy project.
Thank you! ~ Kimmy

Stamping On Ribbon Using the Perfect Crafting Pouch

Good Morning ScraPerfect friends. Chelsea here to share a quick tip on how to stamp on ribbon. 

All you will need is the Perfect Crafting Pouch, your favorite inks, stamps and ribbon! 


I will be sharing how I stamped on silk ribbon and a ribbed patterned ribbon to show you that even textured ribbon can be stamped on, using the Perfect Crafting Pouch. 

Step 1 :  Prepare your ribbon by swiping the Perfect Crafting Pouch across your ribbon evenly.


Step 2 : Ink your favorite stamps.  It is best to use a permanent ink rather than a pigment ink.  

Step 3 : Now let's stamp that ribbon. The best way to stamp onto ribbon is a quick down and up motion without any rocking of the stamp. This will minimize smudging of the image. This would happen more on silk ribbon than a ribbed ribbon. 


As you can see the image is crisp and clean. Regardless if it is a large stamp or a thin dashed-line stamp.
The Perfect Crafting Pouch allows you to decorate any ribbon quickly, easily and mess free. 


The Perfect Crafting pouch also allows the ink to dry instantly. This allows you to use your newly decorated ribbon quickly and easily. I am able to rub my finger over the stamped image and no ink is being transferred onto my skin.


Now that you have your gorgeous newly decorated ribbon, some ways you can use it are: paper crafting such as scrapbook pages or home made greeting cards, gift wrapping (stamp it to match your themed paper), glass wear (jazz up that plain vase!) just to name a few ideas to get you started.

We love for you to share your projects with us on our Facebook page. 

Thanks for stopping by, see you next time!

Chelsea :)
