How To Use ScraPerfect Products To Put Together A Fun Octagon Box Cut File

Hi, everyone!

It's Nancy here today! I'm happy to be sharing another post for ScraPerfect!  

I picked up this fun cut file from Snapdragon before they shut down. 
ScraPerfect has the perfect products to help me put it together,
quickly and easily!

First, I used the Best Glue Ever with the No-Clog Writing Tip.
It worked beautifully for assembling the box,
and adding the panels.


I went on to assemble the lid.
I can add a fine line of glue to all the tabs,
and then fold them all over and they'll stick beautifully.


The fine tip really helps to adhere a doily like this.


Then I decided to pull out some of my non-adhesive bling.
  I went through and pulled out some pink and clear bling.
I added little drops of Best Glue Ever to all the spots 
where I wanted to add bling.
Then I grabbed the Embellie Gellie
and used it to grab the bling, and put it in place.



Here's the lid all blinged up:


Here's the finished box:


Easy peasy using products from ScraPerfect!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! 
I'll be back soon with another project share!

ScraPerfect Makes Clean And Simple Cards Quick and Easy!

Hi there!  Kim L. here today to share two quick and easy, clean and simple cards that I made with the help of the products from ScraPerfect.  I have seen many out there posting quick and easy cards and thought I would challenge myself to make some too.  Clean and simple cards are also a challenge for me since I love embellishments!  I am stunned that the only supplies I needed was 3 sheets of 12 by 12 paper, some sequins and buttons, white ribbon,  the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie.
I even had some of the paper left over!  Here are the cards I created:


I began by cutting a sheet of yellow 12 by 12 paper into 2 card bases.  I then choose some paper by Illustrated Faith and cut out the pieces that I wanted to add to my card.  I used the
Best Glue Ever with the large No Clog Writing Cap on top to apply tiny dots to the paper pieces and then secure to my cards.  This step was made easier since all of my paper stuck to the card stock very well since the Best Glue Ever has the best stick factor out there!


To quickly add some embellishments to my cards, I grabbed some small buttons and sequins and my
Embellie Gellie and was able to place them perfectly on my cards.  I love this product sine I don't have to worry about dropping tiny pieces or accidentally getting them stuck in the glue.  Look at how easy it is to use:




As a finishing touch, I made 2 bows out of white organza ribbon and added them to my cards with a large glue dot of the Best Glue Ever.  I added a button to the bow centers and since they were a bit heavier on the bow, I waited until my glue dot cured and was clear before attaching the bows to the cards.  I think they give my cards the perfect touch.  I think my clean and simple cards came out pretty cute and were definitely quick and easy thanks to ScraPerfect!  Here is a closer look at both of my cards, I hope you like them:



Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Be sure to follow ScraPerfect on social media and follow the blog to find creative inspiration and information about the entire product line.  To see more of my work, please subscribe to my blog, Vintage Rose Creations By Kim.  I will be back next month with more fun projects.

Until Next Time,

How to Make Some Really Cool Father's Day Cards.

I saw this canvas on Pinterest, where they made a collage background, used vinyl alphabets over the collage to spell a phrase, then painted the collage. When you pull the vinyl stickers off you get to see the collage background where the stickers were. Super cool technique!


So I got to thinking, this would be a fun thing to try as a card. And I've got many, many alphabet stickers laying around. This type of craft is a good way to use up all those leftover stickers. Because for this, it doesn't matter if the stickers are different colors or don't match - you're just using them as a mask.

I used two pieces of Strathmore mixed media paper as my background and grabbed my bag of small scraps of patterned paper and my bin of alphabet stickers. The older the better!

Then I did this:


I like to hang onto plastic packaging from embellishments - it comes in handy in times like this! I used a good size dollop of the Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect



and a tiny bit of water to thin it out a bit (it just makes it easier to apply with a foam sponge.) I used the sponge to get a nice coat of glue on all the paper.


Then I started grabbing small pieces of paper, ripping or cutting them to fit and applying them on the paper until I filled the entire sheet. I made two:


Then it was time for the stickers! I found that you need an alphabet sticky enough that will stick down all over, but not be too sticky in that it's hard to remove after the paint. Mine were a bit hit and miss, as you'll see. So... before the paint...



 And after the paint...


I found when I peeled up the stickers that the paint had run under a few of them.  So, after the paint was dry (I sped it up with a heat gun), I took a black marker and outlined the letters. Then, I mounted it on kraft paper and made a card. For a final touch, I splattered some red paint on top.


Hope your Father's Day is special! Stop by again tomorrow to see more fun crafts from out talented team of designers, and don't forget to follow our blog. Thanks Deborah

How to Removed Fingerprints From Your Photos

Hi Susie here today to show you how to remove those pesky fingerprints from your photos.



I always carry the Perfect Cleaning Cloth from ScraPerfect in my crop bag.  Here's why - I was just finishing up a layout when I noticed I had managed to put some smudgy fingerprints all over one of my pictures.


No worries!  I pulled out the Perfect Cleaning Cloth and wiped them away.


Here is the finished layout smudge free.


I wanted the Bakers Twine on the tags to lay in a particular way.


 so I made tiny glue spots using Best Glue Ever



Perfect solution!

How to Make this "Girl Squad" Scrapbook Layout with Bonus Sketch!

Hello and welcome to the blog. Shelly with you today sharing a simple 12x12 scrapbook layout and have also included a sketch to recreate it!

Photoplay "Rhapsody" Paper Collection - Title American Crafts Thickers
My niece and her "Girl Squad" celebrating at engagement party!
This is the next layout in my series for my niece's engagement to wedding album.  This is her "Girl Squad" And not gonna lie, I love that these girls know how to create fun photos!

Today I am going to talk about my TOP THREE REASONS Best Glue Ever is my "go to" adhesive for Scrapbooking.


Reason #1 - WIGGLE ROOM (or, oops! I just laid that piece down crooked!)

Best Glue Ever is repositionable!  Using BGE gives you time to make changes to the position of your pieces!

Reason #2 - DRIES CLEAR Use BGE without fear of ugly white blotches!  Dries CLEAR


Use BGE with glitter - dries clear!  Heartfelt Creations die & stamp used to make rose

Reason #3 - MINIMAL AMOUNT NEEDED!

ALWAYS use the No-Clog Writing Cap for precision application and to save on glue - a little goes a long way!


This No Clog Writing Cap is EVERYTHING!  A must have with all liquid adhesives
sizes available to fit other brands!

As promised, here is the sketch for this layout - I have included sizes on some of the elements

This could easily be used for a 2 photo layout!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have a creative weekend!  And if you use my sketch, hook me up with a link in the comments - would love to see your interpretation!

The Victorian Man Junk Journal by Kim Fuller


Good morning ScraPerfect Fans, I am here today with my next DT project! I made a fun mini junk journal this time, featuring this very dapper Victorian Man on the Cover.
I used the Tim Holtz Found Relatives Cards for the front and back cover for the journal.



For the spine, I used some vintage embroidery from a table runner, I coffee dyed it and it worked out great!


I punched at hole in the journal to add a fun little tag with a handsome stamped image on top of it.


Once I had the base together, it was time to add my coffee dyed papers. I made 2 signatures, and with the help of the Best Glue Ever, I popped a few dots of the glue in my knots to tie the signatures and this will help to keep them from ever coming undone.


I also used BGE on several other elements throughout my journal, including adding some lace to the cover, and adding some of the Rhinestone Wheel of Embellies to the centre of my Penny Farthing Bicycle.


I also added some BGE to the spine of the signatures to help hold them in the book when I bound the book.


For some of the pockets, I created tags using masculine fabrics, that I got as samples from furniture companies in the mail. These are FREE and great to use on a project like this!


I also used BGE to glue in the pocket on the inside cover from more of my free sample material.


A doily, vintage fabric button and coffee dyed sari silk finished off my tags.



And once again, here he is, a wee little ode to all the father's out there, past and present, whom we all love.
Happy Father's Day!


Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here today.
