How To Make A Sensational Congrats Card

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos with a sensational Congrats Card. I used foiled paper to make it shine and Best Glue Ever to hold it all together. The dragon medallion is a stamped image, embossed then painted with water colors.
~ Congratulations ~
The base of this card is a 4"x 6" piece of foiled paper. On top of that I placed a slightly smaller piece of black cardstock with the word Congratulations cut out from it with a die. 
I used Best Glue Ever to go all around the word. To get in the small spaces with out over doing it I used a No-Clog Writing Cap
The dragon medallion is centered on a strip of gold foiled paper with scant amounts of BGE.
After letting the glue set a minute I added thin strips of Best Glue Ever to the back of the gold foiled paper and centered it below the sentiment.  
  I spread a thin layer of BGE on the card blank to hold the base down and the card was finished.
 Best Glue Ever adheres to smooth surfaces without wrinkling the paper. The No-Clog Writing Cap helps me get glue in all the nooks and crannies. ScraPerfect products make this card a success. 
Stop by my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.

Scrap On!

When old stamps loose the sticky back it can be annoying. Using the Best Glue Ever and a paint brush the stamps are usable again.

Mounting Stamps Made Easy with ScraPerfect

Apply a think coat of Best Glue Ever on the back side of the cling stamp that won't stick anymore.

 Spread the glue around with a paintbrush. It doesn't take a lot of glue.

Let the glue air dry until the glue is clear.  Then use as you normally would.

When a new sheet of rubber stamps is ready to be mounted the Best Cleaner Ever is a great help. Coat the blades of your scissors with a small amount. Cut the stamp and foam backing down to the size needed.

Hope these tips will help you with your stamps. See isn't Mounting Stamps Made Easy with ScraPerfect?

How to Create Easy, Cute and Budget-Friendly Teacher Gifts

Where has summer gone? It's already time for Back to School!

Today I am sharing a quick and easy teacher gift that won't break the bank and the entire project was put together using Best Glue Ever and the No-Clog Writing Cap on all kinds of different textures, surfaces and mediums:


I found these over-sized erasers at my local Dollar Store and knew I could create an adorable teacher gift with them.  These erasers are also the perfect size for including a gift card.

What I used:

  • Best Glue Ever
  • No Clog Writing Cap
  • Base - white textured cardstock cut to 4" wide x 5-1/2" long (score at 1-1/2", 2", 4" and 4-1/2")
  • Patterned cardstock, fabric, burlap cut to 3" wide x 5-1/2" long
  • Embellishments of your choice - buttons, sequins, flowers, etc
  • Twine or Ribbon


  • Wrap white cardstock around eraser and secure with Best Glue Ever.  Note in the picture how little BGE is needed for a good hold!  The No-Clog Writing Cap allows you to apply BGE with precision and insures there is no waste.
You don't need much to make it stick!
  • Wrap your next layer (more cardstock, fabric or burlap) around the eraser, centering over the white cardstock and again secure on back with BGE
  • Now go wild! Use whatever catches your fancy to finish - and rest assured, whatever you pull from your stash, Best Glue Ever is the adhesive to stick it down!
Paper, Fabric, Burlap, Resin, Plastic - - Best Glue Ever works on all types of surfaces and mediums!
  • Optional:  add a tag with a punny saying - "It's No Mistake - I'm Glad You're My Teacher!"



Thanks for stopping by today - have a creative week!

How To Add Dimension To Your Scrapbook Layout

Hey there!
Lisa back to share another layout using the Best Glue Ever! I also have a trick for adding dimension to your pages.

Here is my layout:


I always use the Best Glue Ever along with the No Clog Fine Tip Writing Cap to add patterned paper behind my cut files. This gives a nice thin line so you can get into all those small spaces:


I also added glue to adhere my photo to patterned paper:


Finally, my trick to adding dimension to my layouts: I buy sheets of craft foam at Walmart, cut them in pieces and adhere them with the Best Glue Ever:


Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

Paper Flowers Made Easy With Best Glue Ever

Hello Crafty Friends!
Welcome to the ScraPerfect blog.

Michelle here today to share with you, how easy it is to make paper flowers, in a variety of shapes, styles & sizes, using Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect.



For paper flowers you will need:
Pre-Cut Cardstock or Printed Paper Flowers
(I used my Cricut to cut my flowers)

You will also need from ScraPerfect:
Best Glue Ever
No-Clog Writing Cap
Best Cleaner Ever 
(to remove any "sticky" from your hands, rolling flowers, an be a bit messy. lol)

I decided decide to use two sizes, to better demonstrate both the Best Glue Ever & the precision of the No-Clog Writing Cap.

My first flowers, are miniature Aster Flowers. When rolled and formed, they measure just below a 1/4 inch. So they are tiny!

To begin rolling my flowers, I used a small paint brush handle, and once I had formed half a circle, I used a small, very small amount of Best Glue Ever, to adhere it to the next "loop", and held it only a couple of seconds, and it was secure!



I then proceeded to roll the flower,  until I reached the end, and once again used Best Glue Ever & No-Clog Writing Cap to secure in place. I also left  a "hole" in the center of each Aster Flower, big enough to add the yellow centers, in which I rolled and glued the same as the flower, and secured in the center of each flower as well as adding a small circle for the base of each flower.


Once I had finished a batch of the Asters, I secured them to a leaf base, for mounting the cluster to a canvas board.

For the second flower, I decided to use a much larger, layered rose, measuring 6-1/2 by 6-1/2 inches when finished.

Using the Best Glue Ever & No- Clog Writing Cap once again, I first shaped each layer, then glued each layer into place. If a layer looked a little "wonky", it was no problem, the Best Glue Ever actually is very forgiving, and allowed me to work each layer into perfect place, WITHOUT adding additional glue.




 Once all layers were in place, I let it cure for about a half an hour, then glued the rose to so rose leaves, added a circle base, then allowed to sit overnight, to be mounted on a canvas board the next morning.

I wanted simple backgrounds for these beauties, so I chose a distressed wood looking paper, and applied Best Glue Ever to the canvas, to secure the paper in place.

Last bust not least, I mounted the flowers to their canvas boards, again using Best Glue Ever. 
Now they are ready to display!


As you see, Best Glue Ever is the perfect glue to use from start to finish of ANY project you set out to do.

This glue, definitely lives of to it's name!

Supplies used in the project Stamp Heat Embossing made easy with ScraPerfect.


Time to get started on the Stamp Heat Embossing made easy with ScraPerfect project. Select paper about 4 x 6 in size for a base. Cut a piece 3.75 x 5.75 from an old book. Address distress ink around the edges.

Adhere the book page to the card base using the No-Clog Writing Cap on the Best Glue Ever. I love how I can get the perfect amount on a project.

Apply the Perfect Crafting Pouch to the surface of the book page. Do this will keep loose powder from sticking where it isn't wanted.


Using the Versamark Watermark ink pad, ink the rubber stamp. Press the stamp to the paper and remove stamp.

Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image. make sure to close the embossing powder container so you don't have a mess.

Use a heat tool to set the embossing powder. Move the heat tool while watching the powder turn shiny. When all the powder has changed to shiny stop heating so you don't scorch the paper. The embossed image will be hot after heating. Let cool before handling.

To add color to the image use a blending tool and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. This is a fast way to color an image.

Cut a small piece of fabric that will become a mat to the phrase. Adhere with Best Glue Ever using the No-Clog Writing Cap.  Add glue to back of the word phrase.

If you have an oops where glue ends up where it shouldn't, wipe up the excess glue then use the Perfect Crafting Pouch to remove any sticky residue.

Apply the Best Glue Ever to the pieces of trim. One piece will become a crown for the lion.

Make sure to clean your stamp with the Best Cleaner Ever. Squirt a small amount on the stamp and work with fingers. Use a rag to remove the cleaner form the stamp.
