Best Glue Ever for Transforming Your Vintage Treasures

Welcome to Part Two of transforming your vintage treasures with ScraPerfect.  Shelly with you today with my finished vintage receipt holder project.

Earlier this month, I showed you how I use Best Cleaner Ever to prep my flea market finds for transformation in this blog post:  Best Cleaner Ever for Transforming Your Vintage Treasures.

Today I am sharing the versatility of Best Glue Ever.

What I used:

  • Best Glue Ever
  • Water
  • Reclaimed Wood 16x7x3/4 (from my yard)
  • Loose Weave Burlap (Big Box Craft Store)
  • Foam Paint Brush
  • Dish for Mixing Glue and Water
  • Nail Head Trim (Fabric Store)

*while I am using vintage receipt holders, this project can be adapted for  many things - - think of other vintage items you might find or inexpensive hooks that can be screwed into wood

Here's what I did:

  • Clean wood thoroughly
  • Cut a piece of burlap long enough to  wrap to back of wood
  • Put a SMALL amount of Best Glue Ever on dish, spray with water to thin - work with small batches - you will not need a lot of Best Glue Ever to get good adhesion! And remember, it dries clear.

  • Using your foam brush, spread thinned glue across your board
  • Apply burlap and press down firmly
  • Flip wood over and adhere excess burlap
  • Using nail head trim and hammer, attach items to board

And that's all there is to creating a cute display for your flea market treasures!

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

Using BGE On All Kinds Of Surfaces

Hey there!
Lisa here today.
I was digging through some photos and found this one of my kids when they were younger. Sierra was probably 4 and Austin 2.
I used lots of Echo park stash for this page along with an acetate sheet from Paper House Productions and The Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect.

I placed the snowflake acetate on top of white cardstock and then added some of The Best Glue Ever under the acetate where I would be placing my photo. This held the acetate in place until I added some stitching.
Then I added some layers of patterned papers under my photo and held them together using The Best Glue Ever:

I added a snowflake sticker, which I also added some of the Best Glue Ever to. Since the sticker was older, it wasn't all that sticky, so the glue helps it stick better to the acetate. I also added a flourish and stitched it in place:

I popped up the house and post with craft foam and then adhered it to the layout with the Best Glue Ever:

I used a variety of alphas for my title from the Echo park collections and noticed as I was taking these photos that I will have to add some of The Best Glue Ever with the no clog writing cap. This has a small tip that is perfect to get glue in all those small spaces.

As you can see, this glue works on all surfaces! It has replaced so many in my craft room and home.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

How to remove caulk with ScraPerfect's Best Cleaner Ever

Hello friends, Linda here to share How to remove caulk with ScraPerfect's Best Cleaner Ever. A few years ago I had a craft catastrophe. Ever have one of those? Well, I was working with caulk near my sewing machine and ended up leaving a blob on the machine that I could never remove.

Then when I got the Best Cleaner Ever I decided I would see if it could remove the caulk. And guess what? It removed it from my machine and it looks like that craft catastrophe never happened!

First I sprayed a little of the cleaner on the area and rubbed it around with my finger. I could tell it would take a while for the cleaner to work so I left it to stand for an hour or so.

After some time when I checked it was coming of, but need a little help with scraping. After a few minutes of scraping it all came off the machine.

Here is a video showing the process so you can see How to remove caulk with ScraPerfect's Best Cleaner Ever.

How to Use The Best Glue Ever in an Art Journal

I got the amazing chance to add an entry into a traveling art journal with the theme of blue.  How cool is it that my page now can be seen by so many people in person since it travels all around and inspired more people to create art!

Here is a video on how I made the art journal page.

I knew I did not want to do all the mediums and spraying in the journal and get it all painted and messed it up for future people to add their art into the pages, so I created the art on a separate piece of paper to then glue into the journal.

I needed a good quality glue to hold all the strips into the journal without it buckling and warping the page, bring on the BEST GLUE EVER to the rescue!!

I love the ability of using the fine tip applicator of the No Clog Writing Cap to help get in the comers without adding in a ton of glue and making it a giant mess.

What is your trick for keeping you wet glue less messy?

How to create an adorable new puppy one page layout

     Hey everyone!  Lyne back today sharing how I created a new puppy layout using the Best Glue Ever.

     The Best Glue Ever came in real handy when creating the layers on the squares of this layout.  I allowed me to move things just a bit, but then have the permanency that even ATG doesn't offer.
     The glue also made gluing the squares down easier since they had dimension.  Rolling the ATG over the squares wasn't working very well.  I have a video up on my channel showing the process if you'd like to see it. 
     Until next time...stay crafty and keep using your ScraPerfect products.

Make a Thanksgiving Wreath Using Leafs

A couple weeks ago I showed you how to use the Best Glue Ever to add gilding to leaves from your yard (and if you need leaves, please, let me know.  I've got more than enough to share!)

I like to use the leaves on my Thanksgiving table instead of a centerpiece as well as lay them on top of the folded napkins.  Today I'm going to share a quick project you can do with your gilded leaves - make a fall wreath.

I started with a straw wreath form from the local craft store, several spools of velvet ribbon,  a sheet of gold glitter foam, a sheet of DCWV blue cork paper, stick pins, and the Best Glue Ever.  I used the Tattered Leaves die from Tim Holtz's Sizzix collection to cut leave shapes with the foam and cork sheets.

To start I gathered up my gilded leaves and arranged them on my wreath form to get a good idea of what I wanted the finished wreath to look like.  I then put drops of the Best Glue Ever on one side of the wreath and let them dry until they were tacky.  The glue will hold the ribbon to the wreath as I wrap it around the form.  I wasn't sure how far I'd get with the ribbon, but I figured any extra dots would be used to hold the cork and form shapes. Word to the wise: buy extra spools of ribbon, as you never seem to have enough.

I knew I would be covering the bottom of the wreath with leaves, so I concentrated the ribbon on about half the form.  The remaining dots of the Best Glue Ever were used to adhere the cork and foam shapes to the straw. These help fill in as a background and provide a bit of color.

Next, I took the gilded leaves and attached them to my wreath with decorative stick pins, overlapping them.  I decided not to seal the leaves I gilded two weeks ago, which let them dry out more and curl.  It gives them a lot more interest, however, since I didn't seal them they won't last more than a week or so outside before they really start crumbling  -- which is fine since it will be time to switch to an evergreen wreath.  

Using the stick pins on the leaves will let me easily remove them while preserving the rest of the wreath to reuse, perhaps in the spring with paper flowers or plastic eggs.

How To Create a Floral Bird House Card

 Hi all
I  have a card to share on the blog today. I used the foils with Best Glue ever to create a birdhouse themed card.


MDF Birdhouse
Acrylic paint
Resin flowers

Cover a 5 x 7 card blank with patterned paper and then cover half the card with floral print paper. Tear a strip of light pink paper and adhere across the card. Cut two flags from the patterned paper and layer them together before adhering to the card.
Add a sentiment

Paint the mdf birdhouse i teal and then use Best Glue Ever to adhere a strip of lace across the bottom and a large resin flower on the side.

Apply Best Glue Ever to the roof and window pieces and allow it to go tacky. Next take a small piece of purple foil and rub it onto the pieces with your finger. If you get a few patches just repeat the steps until it is covered. Glue the pieces together and then adhere to the card.

Thank you for visiting

How To Remove Dye With The Best Cleaner Ever

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos, if you want to know how to remove hair dye then just pull out the Best Cleaner Ever. I love using brightly semi-permanent colors on my hair. The down or purple ear tips. The instructions are clear about adding a layer of petroleum jelly to the hair line and ear tips. Somehow I still get dye on bits and pieces of me. 
Most recently I smeared it on my arms while I was reaching for the nape of my neck. Don't judge my photos too harshly, I always dye my hair just before sleeping, the lighting was dreadful!
One of the design team members had used ScraPerfect's solvent to remove stains left from permanent color. I though, why not try it with semi-permanent. I spritzed Best Cleaner Ever on my arms and let sit 10 minutes. I washed with dish soap and
💥 POOF 💥 
my purple stains disappeared.
As in COMPLETELY gone!!!!
I have never been so ecstatic, or so clean after a dying episode! (😏)
I have tried MANY cleaners to remove those stains in the past. Coconut Oil works the best but still takes several applications.
When I use the Best Cleaner Ever I know I am not absorbing dangerous chemicals with my skin. This product is:
and it has 
No Harmful Fumes.
I'd say that's a WIN WIN situation!
Stop by the ScraPerfect online store and have some on hand for your next hair dyeing experience.

Scrap On!

How To Fix The Rubber On The Bottom of Your Shoe

Hey there!
Lisa here today to share a quick and easy way to reattach the rubber on the bottom of your shoe.
One of my favorite pair of tennis shoes for work, had a loose piece of rubber on the bottom of it. so I grabbed my bottle of the Best Glue Ever:

I took the Best Glue Ever and squeezed a bit under it.

Then I put a heavy can of paint on it and let it dry over night.
This was the result:

This glue has replaced quite a few different bottles of other glues in my home.
Try it, you will love it!

How to Easily Remove Cooking Grease Residue

 Hello fellow crafter's, and homemaker's Penny here today, where I am going to show you how to remove cooking grease residue from a canning food mill.

So the above photo is what my canning mill (it grinds fruit and vegetables during the canning process to get rid of seeds, and skin) looks like now. Check out the before photo below. YIKES! 

First of all let me explain that I don't have a cooking vent over my stove, so my kitchen builds up this type of grease very quickly. That being said this pot had sat on top of my refrigerator for over 3 years, without me ever touching, or seeing it. (short girl story) It was however really NASTY, and I needed to use it to make some jelly. So I had to get it clean, and I mean food grade clean.. 

So I sprayed it with this magnificent little non toxic cleaner! It is made by ScraPerfect, and it's worthy of it's name as the Best Cleaner Ever! This little gem in a bottle cleans just about everything, including hair dye from your skin, ink from your stamps, tape, and sticker residue, etc.. and in my case built up grease and dust. All the while being safe for your hands and the environment.

So again the before photo, nasty!

After letting the spray set for about 10 minutes, I started using the Perfect Cleaning Cloth. This little cloth is a must have for electronics, removing make-up, etc.  I would suggest buying one for your glasses, and one for your crafts. They are amazing! I couldn't use the cloth on the bottom of the food mill however because it has a very rough texture there to help crush the fruit, and it would tear up my cleaning cloth..

So here is my food mill sparkling clean, or at least as sparkling clean as you can get a 30 year old food mill! LOL

Now for my finished product some great tasting blueberry jelly! This jelly will be going out to my family to be eaten right away, as gifts in a jar. So I didn't put the jelly in traditional canning jars. It will last just fine in these jars for over 2 weeks! If you plan on making jelly that will be around for a longer period of time please use a true canning jars, with lid, and water bath method. Well that's all for today! Till next time Happy Scrapping! Love Penny

Super Cool Easy: Get More from your Stamps (video)

Hi All-
Amy here with a couple dynamo TIPS... SAVE you TIME and MONEY!

I had a stamp that was almost perfect for for my project but wasn't. I wasn't about to buy a new, special stamp especially since this just needed an apple instead of an acorn. It was so close to being exactly what I wanted... if I could only change it a little...

 👀 Check out the video below.
This technique lets you adapt any stamp you wish were a little different. The possibilities are endless!
     • Substitute (or delete) words or images
     • Use different inks, colors, etc

Here's the finished tag which just make the fork and napkin bundle so cute:)

(Be sure not to miss several other helpful and handy tips/techniques in the video...
which also save you Time and Money!)

I'd love to see what you adapt! 
PLEASE upload a before and after in the comment.

How I Used The Best Glue Ever and Scraps to Make a Holiday Card

Today's design team creation for ScraPerfect was made using the Best Glue Ever and lots of scraps that were floating around on my craft stamping desk, lol.

The first step was transforming this piece of glossy gold scrap - leftover from punching out banners for another project from my October Paper Pumpkin kit- turning it into a layer by gluing it to the back of green patterned trimmed to fit on top with a small border, so that it just looks like a solid piece of gold underneath once it's done.

Using the No Clog Writing Cap kept the glue dots tiny enough that they didn't ooze out and make a mess when I adhered the 2 pieces together.

Using Versamark ink and a "Season's Greetings" sentiment from this Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin stamp set, I repeat stamped right down the center of the green and gold piece. I trimmed the larger green patterned paper piece into a panel for the front of the A2 top folded vertical kraft card and glued it on. 

The finishing touch was adding the wood grain deer diecut (that I got from the free pile at my last planner meet-up) to the card front using mini foam dots to pop it up.

Inside I simply stamped another of the sentiments in pine green ink.

Well, that's it for me today! Until next time, happy crafting with ScraPerfect~
