How To Alter an Elegant Wedding Canvas with the Best Glue Ever

Hi there!  Kim L. here today for ScraPerfect with a project that I just finished for my daughter who recently got engaged.  I have altered a canvas that can be used as decor for the wedding and also a keepsake.  Everyone knows that the Best Glue Ever is the quick stick for paper crafting, but did you know you can also use it on heavier embellishments?  The Best Glue Ever was the only adhesive that was necessary to complete this project.  Of course I always have the No Clog Writing Cap on my bottle to ensure an even application and help to use only the smallest amount of adhesive possible.  When you see the small embellishments on my canvas, I used my favorite pick up tool to place them, Embellie Gellie.  I hope you like my canvas:

I started this project by painting the canvas taupe and once dry, adding a layer of pearlizing medium for some shimmer.  I then stenciled the Mr. & Mrs. in black paint and when dry, went around the perimeter of it with a layer of taupe for dimension.

After painting, I applied tiny of dots of the Best Glue Ever around the perimeter of the stenciled area. Then I placed ivory flat back pearls on the glue dots with Embellie Gellie.

Now I attached some trims to my canvas.  With a small line of the Best Glue Ever, I secured some taupe ostrich feather trim to the bottom back of the canvas hanging down.  I went around the outside edge with some gimp braided trim which gives a clean look.  I repeated that around the inside edge of the canvas with gimp braided trim.  You would be surprised, but a small line of glue holds this trim down very well!. I also added a row of the ivory flat back pearls all the way around the inside of the canvas for an elegant look.

I also wanted this canvas to have a vintage feel, so I added a vintage applique (that I cut up and used on the top corners) and an applique with lots of pretty dangling pearls. For an added touch, I added an ivory tassel to the back of the dangling pearl applique.

 I added the ribbon pieces to the back of the canvas, tied, a bow, and the adhered some ivory mini rosettes to the pretty white satin ribbon.  I also used some tulle and a larger rosette and attached it to the center of the bow.  I also added some small ivory pearl heart embellishments to the ribbon tails for a extra touch.

This canvas will be carried down the aisle after the ceremony, hang on the bride and groom chairs at the reception, and could even be hung in their home.  Thanks for stopping by today, please leave a comment and check back daily for more amazing creation from the Designers using the fabulous products by ScraPerfect

Until Next Time,

How to PAINT Special Rocks without a Paintbrush Video

Hi All-
Amy here with a happy, little craft. I don't know if it's a Pacific Northwest craze or it's all around the country, but finding & hiding painted rocks makes hiking just a little bit more fun. It's fine to keep ones that speak to you, but hiding them after finding them is special, too, knowing the joy that will come when it is found again.

There's a Facebook group for our county, and quite possibly there's one where you live, too. People post photos of their finds, or give a hint for the ones they're hiding.  Here's a link if you'd like to check it out (or with to start your own group):

PS Do you know how to paint a really round circle?
It's one of the tips in this video on painting rocks: (NO BRUSH NEEDED)!!!

How to create A Beautiful and Dimensional Wedding Layout

     Hey everyone!  Lyne here to share a layout I created using The Best Glue ever for my sister's wedding. This is a photo of her and her closest girlfriends while she and I were getting ready.  

The glue comes into play when I attach my title and chipboard elements.

     The puffy letters for my title (the 4 comes because I was down to the last bits) are an awesome print that matched the washi in my kit, but they could be peeled back very easily.  The Best Glue Ever, just a dab mind you, ensures that they won't come off in her album.

     I also always use liquid glue on my chipboard pieces. While the felicity jane pieces seem to have awesome glue I've had too many chipboard items falls off later so I aways re-inforce them.
   Okay - back to creating.  Be back with more tips soon, and be sure to check out the other design team tips and creations.  They make some awesome stuff.

How to use the Embellie Gellie with Shiny Shreds on a Beautiful Card

Hi everyone, Erin here today and I am so excited to be apart of this amazing ScraPerfect Team.  I have been crafting my whole life and I love to share my tips and idea with everyone.  Today I am sharing the amazing box of crafty supplies and tools that ScrapPerfect has to offer, and let me tell you, they are amazing!!  I played around with my new box of goodies and played a bit with the Embellie Gellie and the Tiny Bottle of Shiny Shreds on a card.

I loved how easy it was to use the No Clog Cap on the Best Glue Ever to place a tiny amount of glue onto the stems of the leaves and pumpkins to add in the Shiny Shreds with the Embellie Gellie.  Check out my video below to see how I did it.

It was so easy to apply the Shiny Shreds to the card, and they look so fun on the stems!!

I cannot wait to play more with my fun new supplies, I even cleaned my craft mat with the Best Cleaner Ever and it looks amazing!!

Using the Best Cleaner Ever to Remove Pine Sap

How many of you have had the unpleasant experience of walking up to your car and discovering you parked under a drippy pine tree?  This happened to me a week ago.

Mine was especially bad because I was in a hurry and didn't realize that the spots on my window were globs of sticky sap.  So, I turned on the windshield wipers to clean it off ....... big mistake.  Huge.  There's nothing like smearing smaller sap globs into large streaks on your windshield and wipers.  Sigh....

Let me add, I was just starting a 10 hour drive back from a workshop.  As I got close to my house I went straight through the local car wash, which did nothing to the sap.  When I got back home, this is what I saw - pine needles all in the well below the wipers, dots on the hood of my car and sap all over the roof.

Not a fun sight.  Here's a typical streak on the window to show you what I was dealing with.  This pine sap glob landed just above the wipers.

After expressing my dismay in not-too-nice language, I went inside and grabbed my bottle of the Best Cleaner Ever and a large micro fiber cloth.  I decided to apply the Best Cleaner Ever directly to the cloth and start wiping it over the sap.  

I was astounded by how fast the cleaner worked to remove the sap.  Just a few minutes for each spot.  I tried to take a video with my phone, but it was hard to stand on a step-stool, hold the phone steady while cleaning the car.  It didn't really help that my car is white, either.

Once I finished cleaning the glue I used another part of the cloth to wipe the excess cleaner off the area.  I did take it back through the car (after these photos) to make sure I'd gotten all the cleaner off the car.  While it's safe for the paint, it's not a streak-free window cleaner!

But I do have a few before and after pictures.  This spot below had a nice covering of dirt added to the sap.

And this is the sun roof before.....

And about half-way done...

Needless to say, I am very pleased with The Best Cleaner Ever and I plan to add a second bottle in the garage alongside my car-cleaning supplies.

How To Create A Dazzling Christmas Decoration

Hi all

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 Make An Old Book Bright and Beautiful

Charity here with a tutorial on how to make and old book beautiful again. Vintage books are most wonderful to me and finding one with a favorite poem in it is an extra serving of whipped cream. I found this beauty while out thrifting. The pages have enough space for embellishment and so I did!
~ The Owl and the Pussy Cat ~

Before we start here is a look at the book, a gorgeous slim volume of verse bound in green with an embossed cover.
 As you can see there is plenty of room on the pages for beautification. I kept the additions simple, Stamps on Foiled Paper with fussy cutting.
 This pig with wings from Joy Clair stamps has a vintage flavor. It is right at home here in this beautiful book.
 To put it all together I used ScraPerfect adhesive.
The Best Glue Ever holds the glossy foiled paper securely. Spread it thin and let it dry to a translucent finish.

The finished product meshes well with the page design and leaves space on the pages. The shine of the Foiled Paper adds a luxurious touch. Look for more illustrated poems in the coming days. This quick and easy project was perfect for Rinea Ghost Ink on Foiled Paper and ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever.
Check my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.

Scrap On!

How To Add Foil To Diecuts Plus A Bonus!

Hope you are having a great weekend so far!
Lisa here today to share a way to create foiled embellishments for a background with only a few products. I used the Foil Transfer Sheets, ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever and the Perfect Crafting Pouch along with Fancy Pants Family & Co for this fun Christmas layout:

These diecuts have been sitting on my desk for some time and I thought they would be perfect for this layout:

Using the Fine Tip Writing Cap on my Best Glue Ever bottle, I added some glue to the diecuts. Using a brush, I spread it over the diecuts:

I let it dry until it was clear, about 5 minutes. The glue is tacky:

I placed a Foil Transfer sheet, foil side up, on top of the diecut and used my finger to rub:

 I didn't spread the glue evenly so that I would get a more distressed look to my diecuts. I love how they turned out! 

Next, I took the Perfect Crafting Pouch and ran it across the diecuts to remove any sticky residue from the glue:

Using the Best Glue Ever, I attached the foiled diecuts to my page:

Here's the bonus part....
After I had glued down my diecuts, I realized I should have done my mixed media to the background first. I decide to add some mist using the packaging technique and decided to take a chance and placed it over the diecuts. 

I was happy with the results: the foil resisted the mist and just went on my white cardstock background! If course, I did wipe the foil off with paper towel right after.

Here are a few close ups of my page:

I absolutely love how this page turned out and will be using both of these techniques again!
