Amy's FREE Million Dollar Printing Trick (How to Video)

Hi All-
Amy here with a powerful, yet so simple technique perfect for making personalized embellishments, for the front or inside of cards when you don't have a stamp to say exactly what you want, and for easy, cool titles & journaling boxes on scrapbook layouts.

Use your printer without wasting a whole sheet of paper. Print on scraps, within the borders of shapes (tags, flower die cuts, etc) or onto  ribbon or washi tape. I use this simple "trick" on nearly every one of my card or layouts.

The MILLION DOLLAR TRICK name was coined while demonstrating the power of the  Perfect Printing Pouch** at the 2004 Craft and Hobby Tradeshow and a storeowner remarked, "That Million Dollar Printing Trick is worth every penny I spent on this trip... and the Pouch is very cool, too!" 

Learn to print smear-free and perfectly-centered onto a vellum tag!
I get this reaction over and over; just yesterday, when I showed it to our floor refinisher who was having a printing issue, he was simply amazed at how simple it was and yet did exactly what he needed! And although I've used it in so many of my videos, I thought it was time to make a video JUST about this technique-uhtrick:)
Learn how to start with your word processing software and end with a sweet embellishmentHere ya go! Please ask any questions you might have!!!

** In 2010, the PERFECT PRINTING POUCH became the PERFECT CRAFTING POUCH after years of people using it for so many different craft techniques with polymer clay, stamping, fabric markers, and more... that PRINTING no longer did it justice.

How To Create A Cool Layout Using Foil

Hey there Scrappy Friends!
Lisa back today to share a  cool layout using the Transfer Foils, The Best Glue Ever and the Perfect Crafting Pouch.
Here's the layout:

These hearts have been sitting on my scrappy desk for quite awhile and I thought I should use them.
I decided to have some fun with the transfer foils.
I added some of The Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap attached. I actually keep this cap on my glue all the time, it saves me from using too much glue. A little bit of The Best Glue Ever goes a long way!

I spread the glue around on using my finger. When it became clear (it goes on white) I placed the Transfer Foil sheet on top and rubber using my finger:

I used 4 different colors of foil for this page: pink, purple, green and teal:

Check out the purple foil! Isn't it gorgeous?!

Some of the hearts I did using 2 colors. Here they are finished:

I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch to get rid of any leftover glue that was tacky:

Finally, I glued the hearts to my layout using The Best Glue Ever:

I also love using this glue on craft foam,which I add to things for dimension on my layouts:

I hope you will give this fun technique a try!

How to Safely Remove That Awful Adhesive Residue

Good morning crafter's Penny here today to show you how to safely remove sticky glue residue.

So this is how my paper looks now (top photo) but this is what it looked like BEFORE I sprayed it with the Best Cleaner Ever from ScraPerfect.

It was a sticky mess, and totally unusable. So I spray just a small amount of the cleaner on the paper, and let it sit for a few minutes, and presto CLEAN usable paper! This cleaner works on fabric, paper, and just about any surface you can imagine. It so far has cleaned everything I have tried it on. It's safe for your hands, stamps, the environment, and is non-toxic! All the things I require in anything that comes into my home.

Well I hope you give this a try and come to love this little cleaner as much as I do. To learn more about it you can check out this video. Till next time Happy Scrapping. Love Penny

Fun Floral Stamped Tag ScraPerfect Exclusive How To

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the ScraPerfect blog.

Michelle here today, sharing a quick an easy way to make a bright, fun, floral tag using ScraPerfect's Perfect Crafting Pouch.

For this project you will need
from ScraPerfect:

Perfect Crafting Pouch

Best Glue Ever

Additional supplies:
Permanent Ink Pad
Colored Pencils 
Gel Crayons (I used Faber-Castell Gelato's)
Image Stamp of choice
Book Page Scraps
Paint Pens
Gel Medium
Sentiment Stickers
Mini Tag
Flower Brad
Double Sided Adhesive Foam Squares

For this tag I used a 3x6 heavy stock tag. 
I decided to. stamp my image first, and then "build"
the rest of the design around the image.

My stamp of choice, The Hatter from Santoro Gorjuss.
I mean, how big of a dream did Alice have? 
So this was the perfect image for my tag.

And using the Perfect Crafting Pouch directly on the stamp, 
gave me that crisp lined image, with absolutely no bleeding.

I then used color pencils to color, and for ease of blending in various levels of the shades I chose.
Naturally, my "hatter" is themed after the movie version
Johnny Depp brought to life, complete with bright orange hair.

After I completed the image, I began adding torn pieces of an old book page, in random areas on the tag, and applied with gel medium. 

Once the page pieces had dried, I then used gelato's, along with a couple of stencils, to design the rest of the tag. And also used smaller stencil with gelato's on the mini tag.

Using paint pens, I randomly added dots & swirls to both the large & mini tag. 
I finished the mini tag with the sticker sentiment "Choose To Dream".
I used a decorative metal flower brad on the top hole of the mini tag instead of ribbon or string.

To adhere the mini tag to the large tag, I used adhesive foam squares, secured with a drop or two of ScraPerfect"s Best Glue Ever.

Finishing the look, I used sheer purple ribbon, satin black ribbon, and mini charms in a lack & key design.

A fun and perky tag to attach to a gift, or add to the front of a card, inspiring the recipient to dream.

Thanks for stopping by today, don't forget to visit our designer gallery, to find more projects to inspire you in your creative endeavors.

How to Make a Kayaking Scrapbook Layout

Hello fellow crafter's Penny here today to show you how I made this cute kayaking layout.

There is a funny story attached to this layout. I thought this was a photo of my grandson, so I had this photo blown up to a 5 x 7 size.  It was only then that I realized that the photo was actually a photo of my daughter's friend's son Colin. No problem however it was a good photo of him and I already paid for it so this layout will be given to his mom.

The supplies for this layout included some pattern paper that had a wave pattern so I fussy cut it out, and glued it in place with The Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect. This glue is great because you can use just tiny amounts of glue and it will hold just fine.  No messy edges or over spill of glue especially if you also add the No clog writing cap to the bottle so you can place the glue perfectly.

To place those little bling dots in just the right spot I used the Embellie Gellie Tool.  This little tool will let you place beads, sequins, or these bling dots in just the right spot on your layout.  A must have for every craft room, and crafter..

To learn how to use the Embellie Gellie tool watch this video

The tree line sticker sheet behind my photo was cut in half so that I could use the other half later on another layout since there was really no need for the sticker to be behind the photo. That's my frugal tip for you today. Well till next time Happy Scrapping Love Penny
