Christmas in May

Evenin All

 It's Glen here with a new project using the great products from ScraPerfect! I found this Mason Jar kit at a thrift shop for a dollar. I already had some jars laying around so I decided to give it a shot.

 The first thing I decide to do is add some gems to the trees, but with my big fingers this would have been an annoying hit or miss process but by using Embellie Gellie I was able to easily add them on all three trees.


 Then I start to use the Best Glue Ever to add the papers around the jar followed by the burlap and the lid rim and top. The ease of using the BGE is a real treat and  so little is required to make a bond.

If it's broke...fix it.

Evenin All

 It's Glen here with another good use for the greatest glue I've ever used. My first trinket box that I collaged years ago came apart from it's base and I had to fix it.




  I grab the Best Glue Ever and go to work putting drops on the footprint left so I know exactly where to place it. I apply small drops as you can see in the picture to put it back in the footprint where it originally sat.

 I let it sit for an hour and then came the moment of truth...

Foil Accents

Foiling is really hot right now in papercrafting.  But you don't need all those fancy and expensive laminators to do foil. All you need is a bottle of the Best Glue Ever, ScraPerfect's Transfer Foil, and a brayer.



For this layout I used a clear stamp and a plastic stencil with my brayer.  To apply the glue I squeezed a small amount onto a scrap piece of backing paper then rolled my brayer into the glue and then onto my stamp or stencil. 




The brayer doesn't neatly fill in a stencil like a brush does, so I got almost the outline of the pattern.  Clear stamps will give you a similar result.  If you want nice, solid lines I'd recommend pulling out your rubber stamps.


The important thing to remember is have some water nearby and clean off all your tools right away.  The Best Glue Ever is water soluable when wet, and very easy to rinse off.  Missed a spot? Don't worry, a little spritz of the Best Cleaner Ever will remove any lingering glue.

Reuse,Reduce,Recycle!

Evenin All

 It's Glen here with a new project using the great projects from ScraPerfect. I went to Trader Joe's and bought some micro brews for me and my brother to share over the holidays. When you do this they provide a nice six-pack holder to put them in so you can try different ones. My brother looked at it and said "That looks like a project for you." So I saved it and now came an idea.




 I decided to make a condiment carrier for a barbeque, so I reinforced the bottom with chipboard and started decorating the sides with Tim Holtz seasonal papers. I cut out the pics and phrases I liked and using the Best Glue Ever I put little dots on each piece and place it on my piece.

The Best Glue Ever is Ir-RESISTible like "batik-on-paper"!

Amy here to bring you another way to use 
the Best Glue Ever™!


Not only is it a great permanent or 
re-positionable adhesive; 

Not only can you use it for paper, plastic, wood, metal, and all kinds of embellishments; 

Not only can you use it with glitter, foil and other fine bling...

...but you can also use the 
Best Glue Ever™ 
as Mask or Resist Fluid!  

Remember Batik?

Well, this is like "batik-on-paper" but you use glue instead of wax, and paper-craft colorants instead of fabric dye.





SUPPLIES:
• Best Glue Ever™
• Release Paper (the waxy backing paper from postage stamps, stickers, name tags...)

• Coloring media of your choice: ink pads, spritz/mists/sprays, water colors, distress stains, chalks, etc!

• Cardstock, either gloss or matte depending upon your colorants.

HANDY Handle Tool! (Make it yourself!)

Amy Here--
This tool takes seconds to make, costs pennies in materials, and is worth its weight in gold!


What is it? It is a re-positionable handle for holding onto projects while painting, inking, or otherwise embellishing them.

I created some when applying alcohol ink to dominoes, but they'd be perfect for painting clay, working with beads, and all sorts of crafts!
