Celebrate

Overlays, vellum, intricate die cuts and more.  Did you realize that the Best Glue Ever is THE glue that works the best on these products, as well as many, many more?

Good morning everyone, Steph  here today with a card showcasing a beautiful Hambly overlay.

This fun stamp was a perfect pairing with the Hambly overlay and the Best Glue Ever was the perfect glue to use - it dries clear so you don't see any residue.  I used the BGE directly on the edges of the overlay, smoothed it out and then adhered it to white cardstock - NO adhesive lines - LOVE IT!!!!!


The image was colored with Copic Markers and adhered to layers of beautiful papers from the Papertemptress.


Have you used the Best Glue Ever yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?  Purchase your products from the Store today.

Foiled AGAIN!!!! (If you haven't tried it...FOILING is so much fun!)

YES, FOIL! Gorgeous, professional quality designer transfer foils. In response to the  many requests for foil that we searched for the finest professional foils and added them to our line.

For those of you not familiar with it...all you do is rub the foiling onto a sticky surface and the foil transfers--adding just the perfect sparkle! Perfect for papercrafts, nail artists, or egg decorating. The sky is the limit! It's really like old fashioned gold leafing but it comes in many different metallic colors and holographic patterns. Try applying the BEST GLUE EVER to a stamp and then foiling the sticky image. Draw or write with the glue, too--but be sure it's applied very thinly. You can even paint with the glue. Or apply the foil to double sided tape or even the sticky side of a sticker. Simply AMAZING!



Check out the two different sets--solid colors & holographics and we've created some special prices on combo packs, too.
 It's VERY challenging to photograph foil and get the sparkle and true colors. Here's a sample of the different foil sheets in our packs. Aren't they pretty?!


Tutorials and videos coming very soon! We promise. Want to see more? CLICK HERE.

DIY - Make a “Handy Awl Tool”!

Do you have to use a pin to unplug clogged tips like in your Glossy Accents?    I do...Grrrr


But I also use pins to poke holes for brads, embroidery stitches, and other crafting things. I really like Quilting T-pins. They are sturdy, the right size, inexpensive, and the “T” makes them fairly easy to grasp. When they got “gunked up”, I’d toss them and grab another. (Now instead of tossing them, I clean them off with The Best Cleaner Ever from ScraPerfect--but I digress!)


Thing is, I often lost them on my work table and I thought it would be nicer if they had a larger "handle."


AHA!
I found a can of Plasti-Dip in our garage and dipped a bunch of pin ends. They were easier to keep track of and even a little easier to hold...

Such a handy tool, I decided to make some more to show you. But when I got the can out, I discovered it had dried up to a clay-like consistency.

 AHA  AGAIN!  



AND even BETTER!!!!

P.S. if you have polymer clay, it would work as well.
