Using The Best Glue Ever To Add Glue To A Cut File

Hey there!
Lisa here today to share a layout I created.
I used Echo Park stash and ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever along with the No Clog Writing Cap for this page:


I used ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever  along with the No Clog Writing Cap  to add patterned paper behind my cut file from the Silhouette store. The No Clog Writing Cap is perfect for adding glue to small spots: 


I also used the Best Glue Ever to add a dab of glue to my enamel dots. I added watercolor to my background paper:


I used scraps of paper for my border and added some machine stitching. The large diecut snowflake has been sitting on my desk from another layout I created. I added an enamel dot to the center:


I added a few sticker snowflakes and another diecut snowflake here:



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

BoHo Inspired Foiled Feather Canvas How To

Hello there!
Welcome to the ScraPerfect blog today.

Michelle here to share a quick & easy project
using Best Glue Ever & Transfer Foil from ScraPerfect, 
to create a watercolor Boho inspired canvas panel.



What you need for this project:
Canvas Board
Stencils
Gelato's/Gel Crayons
Watercolor Pencils
Charms
Jumprings
24 Gauge Wire
Felt
Scissors
Mini Round Nose Pliers

From ScraPerfect:
Best Glue Ever
No-Clog Writing Tip
Transfer Foil 

Using a variety of feather designs, cut using my Cricut Explore Air 2,
I shaded the feather shapes, alternating colors, using my Faber Castell Gelato's.


Wetting my finger, I blended the color of each feather, leaving it lighter in the center, and darker on the edges of each feather, leaving the stencil in place for each feather. For additional detail, I used watercolor pencils in coordinating color  shades, to emphasize the edges of each feather.

Once I had completed the coloring of the feathers, I used Best Glue Ever, with a No-Clog Writing tip, and applied random stripes on the edges, and lines in the center of each feather.


I decided to let it set overnight, to form the tack that I needed to add the foil accent using Transfer Foil from ScraPerfect.
Once the tack had formed, I added coordinating colors of Transfer Foil, cut into 1-inch strips, to each feather, using only my thumb nail to 
rub the Transfer Foil on.




For additional accent, I twisted wire around the four corners of the canvas board, and secured each with a dab of ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever. 
I also cut a piece of felt into a 4x4 inch square, for the back of the 5x5 canvas board. I also added a charm dangle & a coiled word, "FLY" as finishing accents.



A delightfully colored canvas, with just a bit a foil flair.
A beautiful canvas to display on a shelf.

How to Cluster Embellishments on a Scrapbook Layout

Good morning crafter's Penny here today to show you how to cluster embellishments on a layout.


So let's just say this right off the top of my head that I am not an expert by any means at this technique.  I have been practicing however and seem to be getting just a little better at it everyday. So that is my first tip, practice, practice, practice. My second tip is to not glue down ANYTHING till you like what you see. That way moving things around is a whole lot easier.

So below you will see how NOT to do it.  Yes, I made this layout, yes my mom still loves it, so no I didn't change anything on it. LOL I have way too many photos to scrapbook to try and go back and fix all of my mistakes now, but on this layout there is no rhyme or reason to the placement of my embellishments. Not a pretty site.


Now back to a better example.


The first thing you will notice is that my embellishments are closer together, and located near my photo. This technique was a big improvement for me. On this layout I used vellum, lace, cardstock, pattern paper, washi tape, bling strips, punches, buttons, and stickers. To hold them all in place I used my favorite glue by ScraPerfect.  It's called the Best Glue Ever and boy does it live up to it's name. It will glue all of the aforementioned things in place with ease. Here is a short video showing it in action: video.


So one of the next things I learned about clustering embellishments is to keep them in odd number's when ever possible. For example you will notice that the sequins at the bottom of the page are in cluster's of three. Odd numbers are more attractive to the eye for some reason, (graphic designer rule, not mine) than even numbers are so keep those odd numbers in mind when placing your embellishments. You'll see this technique repeated in the flowers along side the top of my photo, and again in the sequins at the top right.


On a larger scale you can see this technique done using the alphabet stickers, the large button, and the crown punch.  All are placed just close enough that they  make a group of embellishments. I hope you had fun playing along today, stop by again and we'll discuss another technique, good or bad to help you along your way to learning how to scrapbook.  Till next time Happy Scrapping. Love Penny

How to EASY Keep Glue Tip Clog Free (video)

Hi All-
 Amy here, with a Two Minute Video that will save you tons of time (and frustration) in the long run!


ScraPerfect's no-clog caps are so brilliant, and should be cleaned periodically to keep them clear*.  This BRILLIANT little trick will help delay (or eliminate) the need for regular deep cleaning! 

I used ScraPerfect's Best Cleaner Ever™ and an empty bottle 
from the pack os tiny bottles of embellishments (Hot Buys, while supplies last!).




This tip might help when using a needle to clear clogs if you didn't use a No-Clog Writing Cap.

*Complete cleaning instructions for the NO-clog caps are available in the Cap FAQ and with a video.

How To Make A Beautiful Card With A Stunning Stencil

Charity here with a beautiful card that uses a stunning stencil to deliver delight.
The card base, sentiment, and large die-cut are from the same sheet of 12x12 cardstock. This trick simplifies the design and lets me spend more time on the background and layering.
Parts and Pieces:
Card base 4x6"
Patterned Paper Card Front: 3 ¾ X 5 ¾"
Stencil
Dye Ink and Applicator
30” RicRak
Craft Foam
Die-cut Doily, Teddy Bear, and Sentiment
Best Glue Ever
No-Clog Writing Cap
Step 1:Dab ink through stencil placed over card front. 
Step 2:Adhere doily to card front, center. When layering a card I use ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever at the center but not around the edges. As it dries the doily edges will lift off the card front. This keeps the card from looking too flat and pressed together.
Step 3:Wrap ricrak around card front, tie at center, keeping knot low profile for layering over.
Step 4:Using Best Glue Ever and craft foam build a bridge on the back of the die-cut to span the knot. Leave to dry.
Step 5:Adhere die-cut to card front, then card front to blank.
Step 6:Use a No-Clog Writing Cap to adhere sentiment to card front.
The pale blues, grays, and silver tones of this card had me planning to send it off to a new mother. My daughter had other ideas. She swooped my pretty blue and silver card up and just HAD to have it to give to a teacher. I deemed that a worthy cause and off she went with her prize.
Check my blog Scrappin’ Chaos for a list of supplies.

Scrap On!

How To Add Foil To A Diecut

Hey there!
Lisa back today to share a fun way to jazz up your diecuts.
I had these hearts laying on my desk, there are lots of them! I figured I would get some of them used up by adding some Transfer Foil to them. Here is my layout:


Here are some white cardstock hearts left over from a previous project:


I added some of the Best Glue Ever with a paint brush:


I left them dry until the glue was clear:


I placed a sheet of the Transfer Foil over some of the hearts and used my pointer finger to rub the foil:


I pulled the foil sheet off. Now, I know I didn't get complete coverage, but that isn't what I was going for. You see, I used textured cardstock so I would get the distressed look:


Here are my beautiful hearts:


I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch to remove any sticky residue from the glue:


Finally, I added a small amount of glue under each heart:


I added a hand stitched circle over the hearts:


Don't you just love those hearts? I do!


I added another heart to my cluster at the bottom:


Next time you are looking to jazz something up, reach for the Transfer Foils and the Best Glue Ever!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

How To Break Up With Glitter Mess

Hello there,
welcome to the ScraPerfect blog.
Michelle here today, to share some useful tips on 
how to "Break Up" with glitter mess.

As crafters, we all have a love/hate relationship with glitter.
We love the impact glitter has on our projects, but hate the mess it leaves behind.

How did I get rid of that unwanted mess?
I reach for ScraPerfect's Perfect Crafting Pouch
& the Best Cleaner Ever!


 Recently I had purchased a new crafting mat, one that handles wet mediums like ink, paint, even glue. But this past week, I learned glitter is not it's friend. I first wiped and wiped, each time finding the glitter left behind, and sticking to the mat.


So I pulled out my Perfect Crafting Pouch, and lightly tapped an even dusting over the glittered area's.


Once I had covered those area's, I used a soft bristled paint brush to "dust" off the glitter.
It worked AMAZING!


For final clean up I used a wet wipe, and as you see in the photo below, very litter glitter was left behind after using the Perfect Crafting Pouch.


With the Perfect Crafting Pouch working so well with the mat, I decided to use it on my glitter covered bead tray too.
Following the same technique I used on the mat, it worked like a charm.
However, I did get get some glue & glitter on the tray.




No problem!
I just grabbed ScraPerfect's Best Cleaner Ever, added a couple
of squirts, worked it over the glue & glitter areas, wiped clean with a wet wipe.
It actually looks brand new!



So if you are looking to "Break Up" with your glitter messes,
get the Perfect Crafting Pouch & Best Cleaner Ever
from ScraPerfect, and let it do the work for ya!
