New Travel Album

 Hello All
  It's Glen here with a new project using the terrific products offered by ScraPerfect! My last album project suffered an unfortunate accident so I was forced to start another. This is my new travel album in the works and I will try to protect this one. I bought some of these on sale at my local store.

Repurposed Christmas In July with ScraPerfect

Repurposed Christmas In July with ScraPerfect

Good morning all Penny here with a "Christmas in July" post.  Anyone that knows me, knows that I LOVE Christmas! They also know that I am a frugal woman, so all through the year I collect little goodies from "Goodwilll", and other places that I can either repurpose for the holiday's, or use as a gift box. I adore little boxes, but I hate paying extra for them with my Christmas funds, which are quite limited. So while shopping one day I came across this pink leather like box. 

Unfortunately the lid's inner lining has come off, and the tabs that held the lid in place were loose. 

It also had a layer of dust, and dirt on it that needed to be removed. 

The dust, and dirt had especially gotten into the embossed lion crest image on the top of the box. It is hard to see in this photo, but trust me it's there. 

So before I stated on the grime I thought I had better glue down the flaps, and the top inner lining to the lid. 

In this photo you can clearly see where the lid tabs had came loose. So I quickly grabbed my favorite glue that I have found will glue just about everything you ask it too ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever.  I have used this glue on a ton of projects, and layouts, and so far I haven't found anything that it won't glue down. So I placed the glue under the flaps, and then outlined the area where the lid lining had to be replaced. 

I let the glue half -way dry, then I placed light pressure on the tabs, and the lining after I put it in place. 

It worked beautifully, and the tabs were now glued down, and were made usable again, and the lid lining was in place again.. 

To complete this process I used ScraPerfect's Best Cleaner Ever to remove all the grime, and dust that was in the embossed area on the lid.  It worked great.  This cleaner is fabulous! 

I also used ScraPerfect's Best Cleaner Ever on my next repurposed gift box. 

While it was cute, it was REALLY nasty, covered in sticker residue, and dust. 

I didn't try to removed the large sticker on the back, as I will be covering it with a gift tag, and it was holding the bottom of the box in place. 

I think both boxes came out great, and saved me Christmas money, as well as keeping these items out of our local land fill. 

So till next time, Happy Scrapping, Love Penny

Home Decor Project using the Best Glue Ever

Hi everyone Wendy here I hope you are having a great Friday, today I have a great project for you using 
the Best Glue ever of course

The project I created is a lovely decor piece for your home, or craft room

I used the best glue ever and decoupaged a pretty rose serviette 
then added glitter for that bit of bling and because the best glue ever stays tacky it was great for adding the glitter to 
I sealed it with a bit of spray varnish from my stash

I then decorated it with flowers also from my stash

 and finished of added some white paste to the flowers and butterflies for that extra shabby look

In making this project I also used the Best Cleaner Ever

Also I have added a video of me using the Best Glue Ever on my project

How to FIX Car Mirror...Easy!

Hi All,
Amy here...with a crazy story about my 16 year old sons car. (SPOILER ALERT: It has a happy ending!)

Backing out of the driveway with me in the passenger seat, Corben braked to put the car into drive. It is a gorgeous, unusually warm spring day and our windows are wide open. CLINK-CRASH, clatter-clatter clatter, something metallic hit the ground. We both looked at each other confused and speechless. (He later said that he had first thought it was a hubcap.)

We both turned to look towards the window and noticed his side view mirror was gone--not the whole fixture, just the GLASS mirror!

He opened his door expecting to see shattered shards all over the road but instead, there was the small mirror in perfect condition!

I ran into the house to grab a bottle of the Best Glue Ever and a scrap of foam rubber from which I cut off a scrap to use for a disposable "brush".  I applied the Best glue Ever, in a thicker layer than typical for most crafting purposes.

It was set aside to let the glue dry until the white glue turned pretty nearly clear. At this point, it is VERY sticky, grabs well, and forms a very strong, waterproof bond.

I have complete confidence this will last "forever, as we did a similar repair about 5 years ago to my car. A small round mirror had been applied to side mirrors to aid in viewing when pulling a trailer. The original double-stick foam tape wasn't holding well enough and the mirror kept coming loose. I applied a layer of glue to the foam tape and let it "dry to clear" before pressing it back on the window. It has traveled through desert heat, mountain snows, occasional thunderstorms, and the winter drizzle that we are known for here in the Pacific Northwest... and that little mirror is still absolutely holding fast!

Introducing DT Member: Kim Fuller

Hello friends! My name is Kim and I am one of the newest members of the ScraPerfect Team! I am so thrilled to be working with such a great company, and of course also with such talented designers as the ScraPerfect team!
So a little about me to introduce myself to you all, and then I will share a little project I created using the amazing items from ScraPerfect.
I have been a crafter for a long time, I love to create, share and help to inspire others. When I was a child I wanted to be an animator for Walt Disney, but alas that was not meant to be, so I have found my own way to make the world a little more colourful. 
 I also love to make cards, ATC's, altered projects. mixed media canvas', and really dabble in most things creative. I also have a great love for art journaling! I am a trained floral designer as well, and owned my own flower shop for many years. 

I am a Mom to 4 gorgeous grown up kids and 3 amazing grandchildren. I can usually be found getting my hands messy in my art studio along side my trusty companion Miss Blue the cat, and of course my wonderful husband Doug.

Art Card Project using Designer Transfer Foils!

Hi All- Kim here with my first project as a new ScraPerfect DT Member!

I created this Art Card to send to a friend, and it was the perfect opportunity to use some of the great items from ScraPerfect!
I got out The Best Glue Ever and went over the hair and the flowers on the fairy's wings with the glue. You have to wait until the glue has dried clear, to have it work with the Foil, that was the hard part, the waiting...I am an inpatient crafter lol.
Once the glue was dry, it was time for the foil. I used the Crimson Rain on the wings, and the Turquoise Rain on her hair.
All you have to do is lightly rub the foil over the places where you put the glue, and Voila! you have a very easy and cool foil accent for your project.

Once I was finished with the foil, I wanted to add some embellishments to the card. This was the perfect opportunity to use the Embellie Gellie. This stuff is very cool and so easy to use. You just put a little bit of the gellie on the end of the stick and place it where you want your embellishment. I used some very tiny blingy crystals, and it worked perfectly for this.

Here is a look at the card with the bling and the foil technique. She will be "winging" her way to a dear friend soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, for more info please check out my blog HERE
 I am so thrilled to be part of the ScraPerfect team so please check out the ScraPerfect shop for lots of great crafting items.
