Lunch By The River using The Best Blue Ever

Hey ScraPerfect Fans!
Lisa back to share a layout using The Best Glue Ever:

I fussy cut the flowers from patterned paper and then colored them with watercolors. I used The Best Glue Ever to adhere them to my layout. I also used the glue to adhere the diecuts, popping some up with foam. The Best Glue Ever holds the foam perfectly!

I added more diecuts and a tag here also using The Best Glue Ever to hold them in place:

For my banner, I used just a dot of glue on every other banner to hold it in place while I added my stitching:

I love this glue and how my layout turned out!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Do You Have A Mess? Reach For ScraPerfect!

Hello Creative Friends!
Welcome to the ScraPerfect blog.

Michelle here today to share with you, 
how I clean up my crafty messes quickly & effectively,
using Best Cleaner Ever from ScraPerfect.

This is the PERFECT (pun intended) cleaner
to use on creative surfaces, tools and so much more.

I have this bad habit, of leaving paint in my palette, 
while I bounce to other projects while waiting for paint to set.
Often times, I forget to rinse it.

This photo is proof.
And I also tend to let paint, inks, gel mediums etc, dry on my "splat" mat, I mean that is what the mat is for, right?

To remove the dried on or goopy messes I reach for my 
Best Cleaner Ever by ScraPerfect!

With just a few squirts, and gently working the cleaner into the surface, letting set for a few short minutes, the mess will wipe away with a cleaning wipe or even a paper towel.

The results?
Surfaces & tools look spotless!

Best Cleaner Ever is safe for skin, and environmentally kind too!
This is just one way I use it.

I have used Best Cleaner Ever to pre-spot stains 
on clothing pre-wash on cotton based garments
(if stain is on delicate material, first test a small spot.

I have even used it to remove hair color residue from my hairline 
around my face, and my hubby has used it to clean his
hands after working on our cars.

I use Best Cleaner Ever to clean acetate, and it leaves ZERO residue.
As demonstrated here with this bonus tip!

Now for the tip:
I use Best Glue Ever for a multitude of projects, including paper, light fabric, and a variety of embellishments too.

However, I love the convenience of have "pop" style adhesive drops, for smaller embellishments. And using Best Glue Ever may take a little longer to set then the
"quick-set" I am looking for. 

I often use a piece of acetate, the No-Clog Writing Tip & Best Glue Ever, to pre-make my own adhesive dots for adding embellishments.

I am adding the dots to the just cleaned acetate using Best Cleaner Ever.

The Best Glue Ever adhesive dots, generally takes less than hour to cure to a a clear milky film, and sets to a firm tack.

Just place your itty bitty embellishments, press lightly onto the glue dot and VOILA!
You have an effective way to attach your gem. 

If you are not already using ScraPerfect in your projects and creative space, you are missing out!

How to Use Your Own Handwriting On a Scrapbook Page.

Hello and welcome to the blog - Shelly with you today creating a border and using my own handwriting (yikes!)

I have created my photo border out of various laces and trims.  The No Clog Writing Cap allows me to create a precision line of adhesive just where I need it -- and because the Best Glue Ever dries completely clear, I don't have to worry about my dried adhesive or stains showing through my trims and laces.  One of my favorite features of this glue is that it stays very tacky while it dries and I am able to get my trims in the perfect position before it dries permanently.

But the No Clog Cap is for more than just glue!!  Think of any of your liquid craft supplies that are in a bottle - - paints, resins, stains, glazes, lubricants, masking fluids - the cap comes in different sizes to fit a myriad of different product bottles.  Be sure to check out this video for more info:   Video Introduction to the "No Clog Writing Cap".

Of course I used Embellie Gellie to apply my smaller pieces to this layout - - it picks up both tiny flat sequins and my bulky 3D resin shapes and releases both with ease on to my layouts.  And do you notice what a small amount of Best Glue Ever I am using to attach embellishments - I challenge you to try THAT with other adhesives!

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!

Using ScraPerfect's Perfect Crafting Pouch and Best Glue Ever to Create an Embossed Greeting Card

Greetings Chris here and today I am sharing this rosy greeting card i created using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever and Perfect Crafting Pouch.

This card features an embossed greeting strip.  I wanted to show you how much a difference it makes when you use you Perfect Crafting Pouch to emboss.

Start tapping the Perfect Crafting pouch over your paper, then stamp your greeting.

 Emboss with embossing powder.

You can see how much clearer the embossed greetings are using the Perfect Crafting Pouch.

Assemble your card using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever to adhere the card pieces.

 You can see that using the No Clog Writing tip allows you to add just a small amount of glue! Apply a line of glue and let dry slightly to make adding lace super easy!

Use your Embellie Gellie to grab the Stamped greeting to add a few dots of adhesive and apply to card. 

I Hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to get creative with your ScraPerfect Products!

How to Clean Up Your Crafting Tools.

Good morning ScraPerfect fans! I have a little tutorial for you today featuring The Best Cleaner Ever and The Perfect Cleaning Cloth, so let's get started.

We all have tools in our craft rooms that take a beating. For me, my heat gun is one of my most used tools. It is coated with two years of paint, glue, embossing powder and all manner of crafty messes. So, I thought I would put the Best Cleaner Ever to the test.

Note: Please make sure to unplug your heat gun before you spray anything on it.

I used the Perfect Cleaning cloth and cleaned one side of my heat gun so you could see the difference. I was totally amazed!!

You can really see the difference in what was to what it is now!

I was so impressed with how my messy heat gun turned out, I am going to try it on a few more crafty tools and areas in my studio.

I hope you will try The Best Cleaner Ever and the Perfect Cleaning Cloth, this dynamic duo is great together!
Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my little Fall cleaning job!

How to Make a Scrapbook Layout Using Fussy Cutting.

Penny here today to show you a cute layout I made by fussy cutting out some pattern paper. The layout features my granddaughter Madison in front of her tiny make-up vanity. She loved playing with that table, and her pretend make-up. She also loved her frilly dresses which is what inspired this layout.

It would have been great if I had remembered to get a photo of the pattern paper BEFORE I cut it up, however I forgot to do that. For this layout however all those little girl dresses were fussy cut out of one sheet of pattern paper and then added to my layout. You can however see some of the paper in the background of my layout. To make the little dresses pop I added some bling gems. In order to put the gems exactly where I wanted them I used the Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect. It's a great little tool and really helps when handling those tiny embellishments.

To glue all those little girls dresses in place I used the Best Glue Ever also from ScraPerfect. In the photo below the glue bottle has the No Clog Writing Cap attached to make gluing even the tiniest pieces in place.

Again here is my layout with the little fussy cut dresses on it.

Hope you had fun today, till next time Happy Scrapping. Love Penny

Using ScraPerfect Products to Embellish a Calendar Page

Hello, everyone! It's Nancy here today. 
I'm going to show you how I used products from ScraPerfect 
to decorate my September Calendar page. 

First, take a look at my page:

Isn't that fun? Of course I used the Best Glue Ever to put everything together. 
However, the  Best Glue Ever, along with the No-Clog Writing Cap, were just what I needed to help me make easy embellishments for my page. When I looked at the fun background paper, I noticed the fun little glasses. I just happened to have some matching wood glasses in my stash. 

I added a nice layer of glue to each of the glasses...

...and sprinkled each one with a different color of glitter.
Then I set them aside to dry.
Of course I used my Perfect Cleaning Cloth to clean up any stray glitter that was left lying around.

The Best Glue Ever grabs the glitter so well that there's no glitter falling off.

The glue doesn't interfere with the pretty sparkle either.

The super fun image is a new Twistoon Digi Stamp called Back to School
The papers are some from Prima School Memories Digital Collection

Thanks for stopping in today!
I'll be back soon with another fun project share!

Junk Journal Series: Mini Envelopes With ScraPerfect

Hi there!  Kim L. here today to share some more junk journal extras that I created with the help from the family of products by ScraPerfect.  I am really enjoying making and altering items for use in junk journals and today I made some mini envelopes.  I hope you like them as much as I do:

My mini envelopes are vintage themed, but yours can be done in any style you choose to coordinate with the journal you are working on.  I selected vintage book and music paper to use for mine.  To get started, simply fold you paper into an envelope,  Next, place tiny dots of the Best Glue Ever on the sides of the envelope.  I always have a large No Clog Writing Cap on my bottle to ensure I don't use too much glue, it works great!  

Once my mini envelopes were assembled, I used some Distress Inks and Oxides around the folds and heat set.  I love the aesthetic these add, especially when using vintage paper!

Next, I got out my Mod Podge and some pretty printed tissue paper.  I tore the pieces I wanted to use, and decoupaged them onto my mini envelopes.  I really liked how you can see the vintage book and music paper through the tissue paper.

Before the Mod Podge dried, I grabbed my Tiny Bottles Of Embellishments and sprinkled them on the roses on my mini envelopes.

  Before moving on to the next step, I let them dry for a few hours.  Now it is time to embellish these up!  I used some vintage buttons and lace.  To attach these to my mini envelopes, I used glue dots of the Best Glue Ever.  I put the glue dots on the mini envelopes ans waited for them to cure and turn clear before adding my embellishments,   I am pleased with how they turned out and will be perfect for my rose themed junk journal. Here is a closer look at my finished envelopes:

I hope you will try some mini envelopes for your junk journals too!  They are great to put tickets, tags, and journaling mini cards in.  Don't forget to stop by ScraPerfect to pick up your supplies and follow this blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  To see more of my work, please subscribe to my blog, Vintage Rose Creations By Kim.

Happy Crafting,

Kim Lippincott
