Valentine Lip Gloss Holder by Brenda Crouch

Hello Everyone, I'm here to share my Design Team project that I made for Valentines Day. This would be a perfect project for the kids school Valentine parties and 'Chapstick' could be used instead. I think the teachers could even appreciate this sweet little gift.

Here are the beginning materials used:

I was anxious to try the Perfect Crafting Pouch since I was going to be embossing. Of course Scraperfect's Best Glue Ever was a must to use to insure everything is going to hold up.

Above is the finished piece. I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch to wipe the cardstock before stamping and writing using my embossing 'ink'. By using this product, I had absolutely NO loose embossing powder anywhere, so once it was heat set, it was perfectly done. Loved not worrying about having to remove stray powder. The light colored cardstock is speckled, so, the flecks are supposed to be there...hehehehe. I used The Best Glue Ever to attach the embossed pieces to the mats...then the mats were pop dotted to give some dimension. The ribbon ties the sweet card closed to finish it.

The inside of the card shows the lip gloss held nicely in place. More embossed accents inside as well as a bottom tag holder with 3 cute little tags that could be used to write a sentiment or a sweet little message or even a note from the sender.

The little tags are topped with a punched heart to carry the Valentine theme.

This was a fun project to do and again, what a great little gift idea. The Scraperfect Perfect Crafting Pouch and Scraperfect Best Glue Ever, came in so handy on this sweet little project. I hope you enjoy it, and come back to see more.

This Time It's Personal

Evenin All
 It's Glen here with a new project as the snow flies sideways and the wind blows fiercely! I am sharing a very personal project for me, years ago when I was a serious painter I took portrait classes and as a gift for my parents 50th anniversary I painted a double portrait of them based on an old photo I always liked from the time I was young.

 The photo I copied and put in a picture frame that dad got as a security guard for BAE systems on Long Island and decided to decorate it so it could be displayed on the wall beside my painting.

Hey there!  Robin here with another Design Team project for ScraPerfect.

The project was created using the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect.  First, I covered the entire book box with design paper.  Next, I started to add my embellishments using the embellie gellie.

After the box was complete, I cut card stock and design paper and adhered to both sides of each of the tags for the tag album.  Everything was adhered using the best glue ever.  These products were vital to my project.  Below are a couple of pictures of the finished product.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoy this project!

Rhinestone Covered Beads with Best Glue Ever!

Good Morning ScraPerfect Friends! Chelsea here to share with you a lovely rhinestone covered bead for earrings, pendants, zipper pulls or any other creative project.  With my finished rhinestone covered beads I created a set of earrings using the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie. 

Here are the supplies you will need :

Best Glue Ever
Embellie Gellie
Soccer Ball Style Large Beads

I had some large black acrylic beads in my bead stash collection that looked a little drab and plain. Normally a person would grab their jewelry glue but it's full of toxins and fumes. I had never thought to use the BGE in a jewelry project before but wanted to give it a try. 

To begin, I placed small dabs of glue everywhere that I wanted to attach a rhinestone too. Letting the glue dry clear and tacky. 

Once the glue was tacky; which only took a few minutes, I used my Embellie Gellie to pick up each of the rhinestones to place them on the clear tacky glue spots. 

*NOTE : I am working on a beading mat which is like a foam piece of fabric. I was completely impressed that even on a soft surfaces the Embellie Gellie still was able to grab on and lift up the rhinestones! I was even able to use the Embellie Gellie to flip over the upside down rhinestones - Quickly and easily. 

This is what my new rhinestone covered beads looks like.

After turning my drab, plain beads into gorgeous rhinestone covered beads I decided to make them into a pair of earrings.  Here are the completed earrings. Fabulous for a night on the town! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Wonderland

Good morning ScraPerfect friends, Steph Ackerman here today with some snow fun cards.   Winter has finally  hit New York, so I pulled out some winter stamps from Rubber Dance Art Stamps and created these cards. 

I've used the Winter Wonderland Stamp set, stamping the background randomly with the snowflake stamp.   I wanted to dress them up a little, so I added Robin's Nest dew drops around the cards.

Using the Best Glue Ever, I placed drops of glue around the snowflakes and used the Embellie Gellie to pick up the Robin's Nest dew drops and set them in place.

The Embellie Gellie is a must have in your craft room.  It makes picking up those little gems so much easier.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Sweet Mini Wallet by Brenda

Hi everyone, today I have tried my hand using the Scraperfect Best Glue Ever and Scraperfect Foil. I must say, it was very easy to use.

Once I decided what I was making, I wanted to accent my project with the foils. First I applied Scraperfect Best Glue Ever to the areas I wanted to foil.....let it dry (you can tell it's ready once the glue turns clear). I then chose my foil color (which I had 8 colors to choose from), and keeping the colored side up, I placed the foil on the glue, rubbed it with my finger and quickly removed the foil sheet. I got creative and used the red AND the gold to give it a dimensional look. Love how it turned out.

I also wanted to see how the foil would do if I used it with double sided tape. I place a line of tape on the front and used a gold foil sheet to add the flashy gold strip.

The Sweet Mini Wallet opens to hold two pocket pages which both house cute little tags. Pictures and or valentines can be put in to the pockets.


What a fun little project and just in time for Valentines Day. I love how the Scraperfect Best Glue Ever and Scraperfect Foil made this Mini Wallet come together so easily.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Sweet Mini Wallet. Try your hand using Scraperfect Best Glue Ever & Scraperfect Foil to give your projects that little something extra.

Embellie Gellie Makes It Right

 Evenin All

  It's Glen here with a new use for ScraPerfect's Embellie Gellie! This one is for the hobbyists as it involves painting figures. My brother and I are gamers from way back, we played Dungeons and Dragons and other Role Playing Games like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc. I was also an avid military modeler and painted figures for dioramas. That's the back story, this past Xmas my brother bought me a new board game based on the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, one of my favorites. This game involves plastic figures and horrible monsters that cry out to be painted.

   But it's hard to paint figures these days not only because I haven't done it in years but also because my big fingers are in the way. I was getting frustrated when I thought of a great idea! I took some of the awesome Embellie Gellie and built it up on the end of a skewer stick until it held the figure from underneath and allowed me to steady my brush hand and still hold the stick!

 So as you can see this was a real breakthrough for me and made the painting process much more fluid and enjoyable!
