Mixed Media Art Tiles For ScraPerfect By Kim Fuller


Good morning friends, Kim F. here today with my next project for ScraPerfect.
I altered some little 3 x 3 inch heavy chipboard which was taken from a broken picture frame, so its also an upcycled project!


I started off with putting some texture paste on the boards and then giving it all a coat with black gesso.

 
I also painted my embellishments with the black gesso and then got out the Best Glue Ever to attach my embellishments to the board.


One of the little boards I also gave the boards lots of Lindy's Stamp Gang mica powders for shimmer and some of the Prima Art Alchemy paints and dry brushed them on top.


Again, The Best Glue Ever to glue down all my little embellies! This glue is so amazing, it holds everything down!

I added some Prima Art Stones and a sentiment to each, using the Best Glue Ever. Here are my final 
3 x 3 little tiles!




I hope you like my project and will check out the ScraPerfect Store for The Best Glue Ever, and 
don't forget to pick up some of the Best Cleaner Ever to clean your brushes and work space up after you are done creating!

Thanks for stopping by today!

How to Make Festive Homemade Christmas Decor

Hi all, Katie here today.

I am back with a quick Christmas make showing how Best Glue Ever can be used to create fesive decore.


Start off by taking the letters and painting some red and adding decoupage paper to the rest of the letters.




Leave it to dry and then use Best Glue ever to cover the letters with gems and pearls. .


Best Glue Ever sets tacky so really small embellishments stay stuck and do not drop off once the glue starts to dry



Once everything has set. Use Best Glue Ever to glue the letters together to form one word. This glue is great for wood as once it sets it sticks tight.


Thank you for visiting

How to Organize Your Tiny Scrapbook Embellishments

Good Morning ! Chelsea here, ready to share an Embellie Gellie tip with you! 

This handy little tool might not look like much to the average persons eye but for a crafter it can mean the world. Let me show you why!

I happened to be changing containers for some tiny crystal embellishments. I started out using a spoon for the transfer process but reached the bottom and had issues getting into the corners.



I attempted to use my finger but the crystals were stuck there in the corners! 


Here is where the Embellie Gellie comes into play! A light touch of my Embellie Gellie and the crystals were adhering to my wand. MAGIC! 


To be able to pick up more than one crystal at a time I rolled the wand in a single motion away from me. This tiny adhesive is tacky enough to hold them all but gentle enough to release them. 


Being able to reach for a tool that is versatile to pick up most materials makes this a must have in every crafters tool box.

Fueled By Coffee

Hey there ScraPerfect fans!
Lisa here today to share a layout I created using the Best Glue Ever, No Clog Writing Cap and the Perfect Crafting Pouch.
Here's my layout:


I designed my layout so I could figure out where I wanted to stamp on my page. Before I stamped, I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch and ran it across the places I wanted to stamp. This makes for a nice, crisp image.


I stamped directly on my textured cardstock:


I used the Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap on it to apply glue:


Here are a few close ups:


I stamped the black hearts too:


I also stamped the teal coffee cups:


A close up of my title:


These are the products I used:

How to Make Homemade Glue Dots, and a Beautiful Card

Hi everyone, Ginny here and today I've created a fun card using a fun technique to create a glassy look on a card. I wanted this coffee cup to look like beautiful Mexican pottery. This card is going to a lifelong friend,  we have sat at coffee and solved the world's problems for the last 33 years!.
I really wanted it to be special!

 Here is the card and after if you are interested, the process :






I stamped my card on Heavenly White Cardstock  and colored with alcohol marker.  I added lots and lots of ink and then I added Twinkling H2O's and   Microbeads.  

For the background, I used Designer Paper and beautiful  ScraPerfect Gold Leaf Transfer Foil.

I simply placed my stencil on the paper and rubbed a little of the Best Glue Ever over the cut out areas



I removed the stencil and waited about 15 minutes to allow the  BGE to set up and then simply lay the foil sheet over the paper and glue and gave it a going over with my brayer. 15 minutes later I pulled the sheet off and dusted with a paintbrush.


And here is where the photos didn't come out - sigh...






On the coffee cup body I used a matte finish coating and for the decoration, I used  liquid crystal  to give it that pottery look, the gold just gives it a rich look


Now here is a tip, you may know this already, but if you don't this will save you a lot of money!
I've been making my own glue dots for years, I can make them big or small !  Years ago I posted about this  So you know I know it works!

This is so simple 
You simply just make little dots of glue and let them dry!
One bottle of the Best Glue ever will make thousands and thousands of dots.  So thrifty!



They will last a long long time!

I hope you give these techniques a try, they really are simple and will help you make a mailable WoW card!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Tree Canvas How To With Best Glue Ever

Hello Friends!
Welcome to the ScraPerfect blog.
Michelle here to day, sharing with you a very simple, and fast way to create a Christmas themed canvas, sure to be a pleasing gift to anyone that loves Christmas.


I chose to use a 4x12 size canvas for this project, as I wanted a line of tree's, and this seemed to be the perfect size to do that, but any size canvas will do just fine, just play with the design!

I first painted the canvas using Plaid Acryllic Paint in Cottage White. Set aside to allow to dry.

Picking from my Christmas Scrapbook paper stash, I chose a "MERRY CHRISTMAS" worded sheet, in shades of green, a red snowflake patterned paper, and a plaid green pattern as well.

Using my Cricut machine, I cut one design in trees from each sheet of patterned paper.

For the first canvas I used the "MERRY CHRISTMAS" patterned paper.


In small dollops using the No-Clog Writing Cap & Best Glue Ever, I went around the entire backside of each tree, adding each one individually, creating a line across the middle and the length of the canvas.


With any "accidents" of slippage, I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch, lightly tapped onto those sticky area's, and brushed away with a soft brush.



You can barely tell there was a glue mess, let alone feel any tackiness.

Repeating the exact same process, I decided to create a second canvas, using the other two patterned papers.

To seal the canvas, I suggest using Mod Podge or even clear gesso.

If you do not have die cutting machine, you can use ANY Christmas tree template to create this style canvas.
The following is a template I found through a royalty free template search via Google.


So if you find yourself in a pickle for a quick Christmas gift, use your artistic skills and create a simple, yet pretty Christmas tree canvas too!

Until next time.......
Be Blessed!

How to Clean Your Cricut Mats, and a Cute Thanksgiving Card

Cleaning Cricut Mats with ScraPerfect's Best Cleaner Ever

Tracy here today and I can't wait to show you how amazing the Best Cleaner Ever is at cleaning old Cricut Mats. I hate having to throw away Cricut mats when they lose their stickiness for a couple of reasons. First is the cost to replace them and second is the new ones are just too sticky and I usually end up ripping the paper when I try to remove it from the mat. So, I thought I'd try the Best Cleaner Ever on one of my old mats.

Here's what the mat looked like


Here are a couple of closeups
  

 It's hard to see in the photos but they were covered in glitter and little bits of paper. First I spread some newspaper over my work space because I knew there was going to be all sorts of crud coming off the mats. Then I sprayed the mat with some of the Best Cleaner Ever, rubbed it all over the mat with my fingers and let it sit for about 5 minutes. I then took an old gift card and started scraping along the mat. All sorts of crud came off! Once I got it all off, I washed the mat in warm water with some Joy dishwashing detergent and let it air dry. It looked brand new except for all the cut marks on the mat. 


I was going to apply some of the Best Glue Ever to get the stickiness back but I was very surprised to find the mat was still sticky. I tested it several times in the Cricut and the paper stayed right where I placed it on the mat and cut beautifully. It's not as sticky as a brand new mat, which is perfect for me! And if it loses it's stickiness I can always apply some of the Best Glue Ever.

Here's a photo of a brand new mat (L) and my recycled one (R)


Not much of a difference in my opinion!

Now onto a cute little Thanksgiving card I made for one of my granddaughters.


I embossed the background with a wood grain embossing folder and then used the Perfect Crafting Pouch over it before I gently inked over it with several different colors of ink. The turkey was a pre-made embellishment I picked up at Hobby Lobby but I took some of his feathers off and added my own. I stamped and die cut all the feathers and then using the Best Glue Ever randomly attached them behind the turkey.
