How To Scrapbook Beautiful Scenic Papers

Hello Scrappy Friends! Tracy here today and I'd like to show you how I scrap scenic papers.  They are so pretty and I don't want to cut them up or cover them up with photos.  So here is my solution.


I start with a 12 x 12 grid sheet of cardstock from Mosaic Moments.  It's already marked off in a 1 inch grid pattern so all you have to do is line up your squares. It's time consuming but I love the results.


And here is the scenic paper I chose to use.


I cut the paper up into 1 inch strips and discarded the 2 outer edges. Then cut up each strip into 1 inch squares and discarded the top and bottom squares. Be sure and keep them in order so you know which way to place them on the grid. I only cut up 1 strip at a time to make it easier. Now comes the tedious part but by using the ScraPerfect products it makes it a lot easier. I used the Best Glue Ever which made it so easy to line up the squares perfectly on the grid. I also used the Embellie Gellie so as not to get glue all over my fingers and on the paper. I picked up each little square with the Embellie Gellie, added several  dots of the Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap and placed the square exactly where I wanted it on the grid paper.


Here's what it looks like when it's all finished.


Since this paper is a photo of Cathedral Rock in Arizona and I just happened to have a Paper Wizard embellishment of it I decided it would look good together. So once again using some of the Best Glue Ever I went to work putting the title embellishment together.



Here's the final result


I've done several of these types of pages before and they really took a long time. I wish I had been using the Best Glue Ever on those older pages. It would have a saved a lot of time and hassle!

How to Add Embellishments to Clay: With an Embellie Gellie

Good Morning ScraPerfect friends, Chelsea here! I like to share another way I use my Embellie Gellie.

I work a lot with self hardening clay when I am making jewelery projects. Using small embellishments; seed beads, small decorative beads and chatons just to name a few, can be tricky to use your fingers with. The Embellie Gellie has been a life saver allowing me to create projects quickly and easily.

The Embellie Gellie is a universal tool which every crafter should have in there tool kit. It is a light weight pick up tool that works on a variety of objects. I love testing out the flexibility of the Embellie Gellie. 

Let's jump into today quick Embellie Gellie tip. 

I had some seed beads along with some small beads that I wanted to attach to my clay piece. No matter how tiny or how large an object is, the Embellie Gellie will always pick it up and place it gently where you would like it.



With a light touch I pick up each embellishment and lightly place it on the tacky clay.

 *TIP: When attaching embellishments to your project always roll the Embellie Gellie tool away from you to release your embellishment object.*



When working with clay, you will need to push the objects lightly into the clay for them to adhere and stick. To do this step, I flip over the Embellie Gellie and use the wooden handle to press my objects into place. I do not press hard. A light press will push the embellishment gently into the clay.

See Paper Quilling Shapes Made Easily Using The Best Glue Ever

Hi, it's Janet from Try it - Like it - Create it back again with another tutorial using the Best Glue Ever.  Today I am Paper Quilling.


I learned Paper Quilling many years ago as a young teenager. I recently bought a quilling kit to show my daughters how to do it. Working with the Best Glue Ever makes Paper Quilling that much easier. Typically you would make a small pool of glue to dip your paper into when working but with the Best Glue Ever and a Medium No-Clog Writing Cap, you can easily apply glue directly to the quilling paper.


These are some suggested basic Quilling tools.

The five basic quilling shapes.

If you would like to learn more about these tools and the techniques to make the five basic shapes, visit me at Try it - Like it - Create it where I share a video tutorial on the process. 

If you would like to see more crafts using ScraPerfect products, make sure to take a moment and follow the ScraPerfect Blog. I post a variety of projects here twice a month along with a number of other lovely design team members.

How to Create a Girly Scrapbook Page with Sparkle

Hello and welcome to the blog. Shelly with you today I am sharing a girly, sparkly scrapbook layout with some intricate and tiny details.

A girly page documenting my day Scrapbook Expo last year
When you are working with intricate, multi layer die cuts and tiny embellishments, the No-Clog Writing Cap is indispensable.

Using the No Clog Writing Cap with Best Glue Ever gives you the ultimate control of how much glue is dispensed and allows the easiest application in the smallest areas.

The No Clog Writing Cap allows application in tight spots
Adhering tiny embellishments like sequins is a cinch with No Clog Writing Cap


And with Embellie Gellie, I was able to apply this huge amount of sequins in no time!



Tips & Tricks from this Layout:


  • I printed my journaling with my phone and Selphy printer while I was at a crop - it is really quite easy!  See my tutorial here:  Journaling on the Fly with your Smart Phone and Selphy Printer
  • The patterned paper pieces under my title are actually pieces of the UPC tab from this piece of cardstock - no waste here!

And the final step on any finished layout, a wipe down with The Perfect Cleaning Cloth.  Smooth out any air bubbles, remove any finger prints and debris.

Always the final step!
 


Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have a creative weekend!

Valentine Heart Boxes by Kim Fuller


Happy Valentine's Day!  Kim here with my next DT project for ScraPerfect!  
I have altered these adorable little heart boxes I found at my local dollar store. I thought they would be perfect to hold a little Valentine surprise for someone!


I painted the boxes a pretty pink colour using some Prima Art Alchemy paint, and then got out my Best Glue Ever to add my elements on the box once the paint was dry.
I used some beautiful Lemoncraft paper on the box. The Best Glue Ever is my go to glue for any paper crafting I do, and for this project it worked so well!


I added some rosette trim around the edges of the box along with a seam binding bow to give that shabby feel.


The tops of the boxes are decorated with lace, tiny heart buttons, bling and Tim Holtz paper dolls. All adhered to the box with the Best Glue Ever. I used the No Clog writing cap on my glue to get the right amount of glue out and not have too much glue on my projects.


I hope you like my project today and have found some inspiration here.

How To Use The Best Cleaner Ever!

Hey there friends!
Lisa here today to share a fun and easy way to clean adhesive build up off of your crafting scissors. I love the Best Cleaner Ever for doing this!
I cut a variety of things with my craft scissors, some of which are sticky.  This time I had glue and craft foam on them:

I sprayed the scissors with the Best Cleaner Ever and let them sit for about 10 minutes:


Finally, I took a paper towel, used a little elbow grease and wiped the stickiness away! My scissors look brand new again:


Thanks for stopping by and the next time you are looking to remove adhesive build up, try the Best Cleaner Ever!

How To Make A Foil Transfer Heart Card

Hello Creative Friends!
Welcome to the ScraPerfect blog.

Michelle here today sharing an easy way to make ANY
card pop with with dazzle using products from Scraperfect.



For this project I used:


Scraperfect Best Glue Ever
ScraPerfect No-Clog Writing Cap
ScraPerfect Transfer Foils

4x6 Heavy Textured Card & Cardstock
Double Sided Foam Tape
Stencils
Glitter Gel Pen

For the heart design, I used a small piece of textured cardstock as my base.

Holding the stencil firm on the cardstock, I used the Best Glue Ever with a No-Clog Writing Cap, and filled in the design, being careful to raise the stencil once complete, trying not to smudge the glue design.




I used my heat tool to set the glue a little more quickly, to form a clear finish and solid tack.


Gently applying the Transfer Foil to the design, I used a craft stick to 
transfer (rub) the foil finish to the glue.


Then I very gently began to peel back the foil, away from the glue.


Once the transfer was complete, I fussy cut the heart and applied it to the 4x6 card base, using double sided foam tape.

To finish, I used a small word stencil (love) along with a silver glitter gel pen, to give a sentiment that popped.



That was so easy! Yet with the foil and glitter dazzle, it looks as though it took time to put it all together!
