How To Adhere Thin Diecuts

Hey there!
Lisa back today to share a card with you.
What do you use to adhere thin diecuts to your projects?
I found the perfect combo- The Best Glue Ever and the No Clog Writing Cap!
Here's my card:


See how intricate this diecut is?


See how fine the applicator tip is on the No Clog Writing Cap? It's perfect for adding glue to this diecut!


I like to pop up my embellies with craft foam and The Best Glue Ever is perfect for this. It dries(and holds) super fast!


I love how this card turned out and I love my ScraPerfect products!

Only The BEST Cleaner For My Craft Mat

Hello there!
Welcome to the ScraPerfect blog!

Michelle here today to share a quick, effective & SAFE 
way to clean your silicone type craft mats, without
messing up the surface.


Let's face it, replacing these mat's can be expensive.
So why not preserve the life of your mat's using only the BEST Cleaner Ever
to remove paint, ink, gesso..... whatever medium that seems to want to stick around, doesn't stand a chance using ScraPerfect's Best cleaner Ever.


With a recent card project I completed, I used some metallic gold misting spray, got a little lazy and didn't used my box that I usually use when using sprays.
Oh boy, did I have mess!


So, I reached for my bottle of Best Cleaner Ever.


With a few spritz of the cleaner, a little blending 
with my fingers (IT IS SKIN SAFE!) over the misted surface, and just a few brief moments of letting it sit, my surface wiped clean with a dry paper towel!!!





No harsh fumes, no abrasives to mess up the surface of my mat, and skin safe!
What is not to love about this cleaner?!?!?!
And a spotless mat!


Do I seem overly excited? Most likely, because I have NEVER used a cleaner like this before in ALL my adult years of living!

I have used it outside of my crafting space as well. 
I have used it to remove stubborn stains from certain clothing. 
I have used it to remove hair color stain from my skin, and even to remove sticky cooking messes from bakeware & cookware and 
my glass stove top surface 
(next time I will be sure to get before and after photos from the kitchen).

If you do not already own a bottle or two or three, I strongly suggest you invest in some today! You won't regret it! 

If you are looking for some crafty inspiration today, be sure to visit the ScraPerfect archives to the right, and find an array of projects created by the talented ScraPerfect Design Team.

How to Make a Beautiful Fall, or Summer Beaded Card

Good morning Einat Kessler today I'm here to show you how to make a beautiful Summer, or Fall beaded card.


I used the Perfect Printing Pouch on my cardstock to make sure the stamping would turn out nice and crisp. I stamped two sizes of sunflower on an orange cardstock. Then I stamped the leaves on a green cardstock. Then, I cut the stamped shapes.

I added colored beads to the center of the sunflower using the Best Glue Ever since it dries completely transparent and I didn't want any adhesive to show.


I adhered the flowers to the card and added a punched paper border on the bottom of the card. I used the Best Glue Ever to trace the scalloped edges of the border and added glitter.

For a finished touch I added beads to the border by using the Embellie Gellie to pick them up easily!

How to Make a Gorgeous Shabby Chic Fall Scrapbook Layout

We've got another lovely shabby chic project from Cynthia to share with you today.


Cynthia used the Best Glue Ever for her embellishments, including the buttons and the little bird.



Using Embellie Gellie to attach the buttons and flowers made it easy.


You can see by the photo below how the gellie sticks onto the mounting stick to help you grab even the smallest of embellishments with ease. 


Here is a close up of the beautiful layering on this layout that takes it a step above beautiful.
 

Come back again soon to see more amazing projects,

How to Easily Make a Digital Hybrid Scrapbook Layout

Becky here to show you a simply beautiful "hybrid" scrapbook page layout. It's also a very inexpensive and easy project. All you'll need is your PC & printer, white card stock or photo paper, some Best Glue Ever! a Perfect Crafting Pouch and art glitter!



1. Create a document in a word processing program, select the "Draw" document vs. the text document. Alter the page to 12x12 document with .25" borders.


2. Insert a "text" block within the Draw Function to type background. I have repeated my grand daughter's full name in 10 different fonts, making 5 lines that I copied and repeated. She loves pink and purple :o)

3. Create a new "text" block and type an initial. Be sure to "arrange" this block to be on top of the background block.

4. Insert photos into the document and size accordingly. I "arranged" the layers so the photo was on top of the background fonts, but behind the large initial.

5. At this point I realized I wanted some texture and shading to the background but if I wanted to photos to print well, I'd have to print on WHITE card stock or photo paper.............



6. Under "format", select "area" and pick a texture and colors that work.
You may have to name your new creation and save it. To apply it to your page, see below.


7. Under Page Set up for your document, select "background" and you will see your newly created background texture there. Select it for use in your document and say "OK"


8. Insert more photos. Remember to "arrange" their layers, and print the document on 12x12 white matte card stock or photo paper if desired. LET DRY for at least two hours, longer if you use glossy--see product specifications.



9. Lightly rub the entire page with the Perfect Crafting Pouch.
This will eliminate static problems with the fine art glitter. This will happen more so if the entire page has been printed, the ink is moist. The extra drying time and the Perfect Crafting Pouch will eliminate this.



10. Apply The Best Glue Ever! over the printed initial.


11. Cover completely with glitter. I mixed blue and purple Tulip fine art glitter together to get the right color for the layout.


12. Dump off excess glitter and let dry.



I trimmed the approx 1/8 - 1/4" of white off the edges and mounted onto a piece of purple card stock that gives it a nice frame :o)

I hope you try this and have fun with it. If you have any questions, you can email me anytime or find BC Designs FaceBook.

How to Make a Fabulous Altered Notebook Cover

Hello! It's Danielle here with an altered project today. I bought this little book on clearance and wanted to use it for my projects but still have it small enough to throw in my purse when shopping. 




Because of the shiny front, getting paper and small stickers to stick to it would be hard, however it was very easy with The Best Glue Ever ! All the little papers were super easy to stick and I only needed a small amount of glue. Now I can easily see what projects I need to do and what I need to buy to complete all my projects.

Thanks for stopping by today.

How to Make a Frugal Military Scrapbook Page.

Penny here today with this layout featureing my mother's first cousin Jay Jr. when he came home from the war.  This was a popular pose for returning servicemen so they could show off their Honorable Discharge papers, and express their joy at returning home alive!


The journaling reads:
"Homecoming 1945, Honorable Discharge! Like many servicemen being discharged Jay Sharpe Jr. had this photo taken to express his joy at finally being able to return home. "

You will have to excuse the blurred lettering as this was my very first attempt to print on a transparency.  I promise I will get better at it, however for a first try it ain't too shabby! From what I have since read you can get a better result by adjusting your printer to a transparency setting or a low / economic ink setting which uses less ink, and therefore produces less blurring.

I should have also used the Perfect Crafting Pouch from ScraPerfect. It would have worked wonders on the print quality on this layout. As explained in this Video.


Oh well at least I know better for next time.

Some of my frugal tips on this layout also include fake "dog tags" that I stole from my grandson's GI Joe.  Shhhh.......I didn't tell him, he thinks he lost it! 

The stars surrounding the "1945" are really little girl's hair barrettes! They already had the look of aged brass so they fit in perfectly with this military themed layout. 

The supplies used were:
Cardstock
Transparencies
Eyelets
The stars are really little girl's barrettes
Dog tags, were removed from a child's doll.

Happy Scrapping! Love Penny
