How To Make A Beautiful Love Layout That Shines

Charity here from Scrappin’ Chaos with a layout that is all about layers of love. From craft foam to wood shapes to foiled paper this project sticks together with Best Glue Ever. Not only is this glue from ScraPerfect extremely versatile, it only takes a little to do the job.
To give the layers on this layout loft I used craft foam. Best Glue Ever holds it all together with a squiggle here and a squeeze there.
The heart shapes, whether they are open wood or cork shapes they get a dribble of the same glue and are secured permanently.
I chose flowers in the same shade of aqua as my accent papers. They needed a little something to help them stand out. I punched petals from foiled paper and attached them with drops of ScraPerfect’s BGE. The flower stays where I want it with a blob of BGE.
A drop or two more of BGE holds down a foiled paper frame. To attach the frame I used a drop on each end and a smear on each corner. I also placed the frame as soon as I added the glue, slipping it under the layers of patterned paper.
The title card describes these two sweeties perfectly. An open shape rose and leaves add the crowning touch. The best part though, is the way this photo makes me feel...all warm and happy inside!

How to Make a Foxy Planner for February

Hello crafty friends! Kathy here from Create.365 and today's project with ScraPerfect is my planner spread for next week.

I printed out digi stamps on sticker paper and used patterned paper that's been in my stash for many years.

Of course, the Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap is perfect for any paper project and so I used it to glue down all the paper that I punched and diecut out.

I then colored all the images up with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, accented them with Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen, stamped daily "to-do"s and blended pink ink around the edges.

Turned out pretty cute, eh? Since February is the month to celebrate LOVE, I figured I could get by using that as my theme for another week in my planner!

That's it for me today ~happy crafting with ScraPerfect!

Last Minute Cupcake Toppers for Any Celebration (Quick & Easy!)

Hello and welcome to the blog!  Shelly with you today with a quick and easy cupcake topper project made even easier with ScraPerfect!

Let's jump in and get started....


  • Toothpicks
  • White Cardstock (1/2" x 6" Strip, Fold in Half, Snip or Punch Ends in banner shape)
  • Bakers Twine (10" Length for each topper)
  • Small Stickers (I am using hearts)
  • Sequins
  • Dew Drops
  • Best Glue Ever
  • No Clog Writing Cap
  • Embellie Gellie


  • Banner Punch
*the banner punch is an optional tool, it is very easy to snip the ends of your cardstock into a banner shape - however - on big projects (I made 36 cupcakes!) the punch is so quick, easy and consistent!

Let's make toppers:
 *using the No Clog Writing Cap really gives you great control over the amount of glue you use (your BGE will last forever!) and really allows you to apply with precision. There are different cap sizes to fit many different brands of liquid adhesive!
  • Lay a toothpick and piece of twine side by side just inside the crease of strip
  • Allow BGE to set and become tacky (as BGE becomes tacky, it will turn from white to clear)
  • Press your banner strips together
  • Top your cupcakes!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have a creative weekend (it's almost here!)

How To Easily Foil A Cut File

Hey there!
Lisa back today to share a tutorial on how to use the Best Glue Ever along with the Transfer Foils.
Here is the layout I created:

I used watercolors for my background. I added gold foil to the cut file using the Best Glue Ever:

I love using textured cardstock for this technique! I don't work the glue into the textured cardstock so my result is a distressed look:

Here is another piece of the cut file:

Wondering how to get this look?
I applied The Best Glue Ever with a paintbrush to the cut file:

The glue is white when applied but as it dries, it will look clear:

Once it is clear, you can apply the foil. This is so easy and fun to do!

Lay the Transfer Foil on top of the cut file, shiny side up. Rub the foil using your pointer finger:

Carefully peel the foil away. Repeat this process until the cut file is covered:

Once I have the cut file covered with the foil, I take the Perfect Crafting Pouch and rub across the cut file. This gets rid of any sticky residue from the glue:

Here is the finished cut file:

This technique adds so much to a layout and it is so fun to do!

How to hand-make festive holiday cards - fast, super easy and frugal!

Robyn here, guest designer. If you are like me, you have a bunch of people you want to greet at the end of the year, including work colleagues. We don’t do photo cards, so I like to send hand-made cards. Like in so many areas at this time of year, my limitations are time and money.

I solve the time conundrum by making a simple design in batches using Henry Ford’s innovation – an assembly line. I make them frugal by using papers from my stash, supplies from the dollar aisle, and this year, leftovers from holidays past.
Earlier in the year, I grabbed a bunch of packs of cards and envelopes from the dollar aisle at Target. Turns out the “cards” were single pieces so I set them aside for other uses. The kraft paper envelopes are nice. The cards will be small – 5 x 3.5 – but that is enough room to write a greeting inside. I started with a batch of ten.
To begin, I cut 7 x 5 pieces from several different single-sided holiday card stocks, and folded them with my bone folder. Then I trimmed the leftovers into small pieces to layer – using scraps is so frugal. I inked all the edges of the layering pieces with red ink, and wrapped them with baker’s twine, held with a staple or two from my Tiny Attacher.

Next, I used tiny dabs of Best Glue Ever to adhere the first layer to the card blanks, mix-and-match having a care for the direction of the writing on one of the designs.

Then it was time to start decorating each one. I had some cardstock holiday themed ephemera for some of the cards, and a bunch of gift tags left over from last year. I used BGE to glue them to the fronts. If they fit under the twine, I glued them flat. If they were too fancy or wide, I used some foam shapes to bump them up over the twine. BGE works really well to join different surfaces.

You can see that I only used tiny dabs

The snowflakes are die-cut wood in either natural or silver

Some tags had a greeting, already. For those that did not, I tied on a black and white “chalk board” printed label, again left over from last year. In the end, all that was left were embellishments, including just a few Robin's Nest Dew Drops, placed easily with the Embellie Gellie

Some needed pins for a bit of extra shine and interest. It was easy to slide them under the paper between the dabs of Best Glue Ever. Had I used a tape glue, that might have been tough.
Here are the ones with pins, with the points safely under the cardstock

Finally, for an extra touch, I stamped an ornament image on the flap of the envelopes.

Rubber stamp from the dollar bins at Michaels, a couple of years ago.

Happy Holidays.

How to Assemble Card Kits With Ease and a Freebie

Hi everyone, Ginny M here and have you ever
 had a brilliant idea - last minute?  Well, that was this project!
Last minute I thought it would be a really great idea to get a bunch of Valentine cards out.  I made 24 and had them in the mail in two hours!  Kits can be a wonderful thing ( Maxam Made Studio Kit). 
I used Best Glue Ever for all of the adhesion, including the ribbon bows.

Just a tiny bit will hold everything flat and secure

The Glue sets up fast, it is such a pleasure to work with, especially using the fine tip.

I am giving you this lovely sentiment from Song of Solomon, Digitized by Karren Murray ( I think) in one of my frames

I hope you have a wonderful Day and thanks for stopping by!

How to create a love hearts shaker card

Hi all

I have a card to share today. I used Best Glue Ever to glue the embellishments and shaker boxes together.

Start off by cutting out one large heart from patterned paper using a nesting die. Then one  from acetate for the top. Place a smaller heart die into the centre of the larger heart and secure with washi tape. Cut out two or more from craft foam. This depends on how deep you want the shaker boxes. Cut a frame from patterned paper.

Repeat the steps using a smaller pair of nesting dies and then glue the foam frames together before gluing to the base. once the glue has set, fill the boxes and then glue the top on. Add the frame cut from pattered paper over the top to cover the glue up.

Cover a blank card with paper and then stamp a texture stamp around the edges and in the centre. Glue down the shaker boxes.

Decorate with charms and flowers which were inked with bronze mist spray.

Finish with a sentiment
