How to use an Embelli Gellie creating a vintage card and a freebie!

Hi everyone, Ginny M here, I wanted to show you a fun little tool to help you work with small it's and embellishments, It's called and Embelli Gelli, it is lots of fun and easy to use and very economical!  Plus it is environment-friendly!

Here is the card I made with this low-tech, high-performance tool!

To help you make this card I have this freebie for you, it is not one of my originals, but I Know you will enjoy it!

For details, please read on!

I simply pulled stash paper:
one of my chopped 6x6 pads (from a 12x12)

few colors to pick from

I selected and printed and oops, this didn't work out too well!  
Time to reevaluate my paper. This obviously didn't work!

something a little heavier and less coated

Holding it all together - Best Glue Ever!

Ater cutting and assembling, the fun part - embellishing with the Embelli Gelli!

This fun tool will last so long, you just take a like "dip" of the gel and place it on the tip of the wood stylist (or you can use one of your fav pointy tools)

I place dots of the BGE on the paper where I want my embellishments, pick up the embellishment
and place it on the glue. simple and easy as can be!

I purposely add a tiny bit extra to it will come up through the hole in the sequin

and then add glitter!!

wait a minute or two:

I hope you'll have a few minutes to make your own vintage card, Using the Embellie sure makes it easier to add those tiny embellishments!
Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous Shabby Chic Floral Crown Made Easy With The Best Glue Ever

Hello there crafty friends, Michelle here today to share with you my latest project using the  amazing products of ScraPerfect, which made transforming this thrift store neglected and torn crown, into a FABULOUS Shabby Floral Crown.

I first cut off several of the metal "coils"  that had broken and spiked out in various places on the crown. I then used white heavy gesso, and covered the inside and the outside of the crown, to dull down the brassy gold. Once dried, I randomly used a Rose Gold paint over the entire crown.

I chose a white floral lace to wrap around the base of the crown, followed by pink seam ribbon, using the Best Glue Ever for both applications. I also added a strip of off white flat back pearls predesigned on adhesive,rescecuring with the Best Glue Ever, over the top of the pink seam ribbon, for an added flair.

To create the crown front, I cut two 4-1/2 inch strips of white hem binding and used about 2-1/2 inches of the overlapped pink seam ribbon to make loop like bows, once again, adhereing with the Best Glue Ever

Once the glue had set with the the ribbon, I used Best Glue Ever to attach a sequined appliqué, one large white rose, two beautiful pink crinkled flowers & a couple of other white flowers with green stamen centers to finish the front of the crown.

Have you ever been annoyed by trying to perfectly place your gem/bling strategically and still not get right on spot? Well then you haven't tried ScraPerfect's Embellie Gellie. Believe me, when it came to adding the various color and size flat back pearls to the remainder of this crown, the Embellie Gellie (along with Best Glue Ever) took out ALL the 
frustration, and the results, perfection.

How to add an easy POP to your projects with Transfer Foils

Hello and welcome back to the blog today.  Shelly with you, sharing a simple layout with a pop of metallic red.  I love pops of red on my layouts and ScraPerfect Transfer Foils are so easy to use, they make adding a POP to your layout a cinch! Today's layout is commemorating my life long passion for reading.

To create my red foil arrow:

  • Using finger (or small paintbrush if you prefer) cover entire surface of chipboard shape with a VERY thin layer of Best Glue Ever.  BGE will go on white, and then clears as it dries.  
  • Once the glue has become clear and tacky to the touch, place your transfer foil (color side up) on top of your chipboard piece
  • Rub with your finger all over entire surface
  • Quickly pull transfer foil sheet off of chipboard piece
  • It really is that easy!

Another embellishment technique I love using is to "deactivate" stickers with the Perfect Crafting Pouch.  This allows me to layer and build up the stickers and even add dimension.

Once I customized my embellishments, I put my layout together and of course used my Embellie Gellie to apply most of my components.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

Have a creative week!

A Cute Kindergarten Graduation Card Makes A Good Point!

Tracy here today with a graduation card for my youngest granddaughter who just graduated from Kindergarten.

To make the pencil I started with a plain old popsicle stick.

I used an exacto knife to cut one end into a point and then just painted it to look like a pencil. Then I wondered what to use to attach it to the card. Silly me! Of course I would use some of the Best Glue Ever. It held perfectly!  This glue seems to work on everything! I can't imagine scrapping without it!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a scrappy day!

Gorgeous Shabby Chic Upcycle

Hello ScraPerfect fans, Kim L. here today to share with you my latest project. I upcycled a canvas bag into a shabby chic gift bag suitable for any woman in your life.  I hope you like it!  I couldn't have made this without some amazing products from ScraPerfect.  Here it is:

I started out with a plain canvas bag and adhered some white lace to serve as a background with the
Best Glue Ever and I only had to use a very thin line. Then, I secured the cream doily to the center and lace trim to the sides, also with the Best Glue Ever. I cut the canvas image of the lady into a circle shape and attached it to the center of the cream doily with the Best Glue Ever again.
I layered a cream dangle lace and a lavender lace on the bottom of the gift bag and then added a piece of purple bling in the center with a glue dot made from the Best Glue Ever.  Here is a close up of the laces on the bottom of the bag:

Next, I started embellishing and added a delicate lavender trim around the edge of the image.  I adhered some lavender sprigs to the bottom of the image, and a couple of doily centers as well. Everything was glued to the bag with ScraPerfect's amazing Best Glue Ever.  I utilized my
Embellie Gellie to perfectly place tiny lavender flatback pearl accents and a few white pearl embellishments.

As a finishing touch, I gave the entire front of the bag a few spritzes of  purple shimmer spray from my stash.  Deciding to keep the back of the bag simple, I chose to only add a matching cream doily, which was adhered with the Best Glue Ever.

I enjoyed making this gift bag so much that I was inspired to try a larger one.  So here is a bonus project, all made with ScraPefect products too.  This one was done in a different color palette, hope you like this shabby gift bag too:

I thank you for stopping by today, please follow this blog, leave me a comment on this post, and be sure to check out ScraPerfect for the entire line of products.  I hope you will try altering a bag and share photos too, they are fun and addicting!

Until Next Time,

How I saved my favorite ink pad

Hey Scrappy Friends!  Lyne here and if you've been following me for a bit you know that I like to find creative uses to use my Best Glue Ever.  I have another one for you today.
     My baby girl LOVES my ink pads for some reason.  I have to drag her away from them at least five or six times a day.  Well, before I could get to her the other day she managed to rip my favorite color ink pad apart.
     I knew it needed to be a special glue to repair this because I didn't want to compromise the ink.  Best Glue Ever is good for use with foam so I figured I'd give it a try.
     Look at how little  glue it took to stick the ink pad versus the original!
     I also took the above pictures for you holding the ink pad upside down and sideways to show how well it stuck!  I'm so glad that my favorite color ink pad could be saved since I can't procure these locally.  Keep watching for more creating ways to use the ScraPerfect products.
