How to Make A Two Page Travel Scrapbook Layout

Good morning crafter's Penny here today I am here to show you what my 2 page scrapbook travel layout looked like when I finished it up. This was page 1.


Here is a closer look at the embellishment cluster. I used ticket stubs, flowers, brads, lot's of pattern paper, and just an assortment of fun items.


To hold all of my embellishments in place till I could decide on what photo I wanted to put here, I used this great glue by ScraPerfect.  It has really earned it's name as the "Best Glue Ever because it's will hold just about everything. Fabric, plastic, metal, you name it I've put it to the test.


Here I am using it to hold these flowers in place until I can get the brad put in.  It would hold the flowers without the brad, but I wanted the extra detail of the brad head in my flower but the flowers kept moving around while lI tried to put in the brad, so I glued them down first.. As you can see I have used this glue so much that I have illiterately worn the bottle's label off.  That is how long just one bottle of glue will last you.  A little bit of this glue goes a LONG, LONG way! 


Page 2 of my travel pages look like this. 


The title of the page was included in the paper kit making it super easy to finish these pages in no time.


And again page 1

And Page 2 


I hope you had fun today! Till next time Happy Scrapping! Love Penny

How To Make A Stunning Page With Extra Stars

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos with a stunning layout featuring enough extra stars to light up the sky! The blue and white color scheme gives this scrapbook page a crisp tailored look. The gold and blue foiled papers step up the shine factor.
~ Stellar Cast ~
Best Glue Ever, a pressure sensitive adhesive, holds it all together. Whether I am layering with glossy foiled paper or cardstock I reach for ScraPerfect's BGE. Just a little dab, a thin line of glue, and my project is secure. I have no wrinkles, no bleed through, and no hours of dry time.
I started with a large circle which I cut in a spiral pattern. It serves as a frame for the upper corner of my photo mat.
On top of the frame I added a rectangle of white cardstock. I layered that with black foiled paper pitted with star cutouts, and a strip of blue ticking paper.
The lower border of the page are long wedges of the ticking paper and blue foiled paper that I had used a border punch on.
Embossed ebony foiled paper (bordere punched with an additional star pattern) and small squares of blue/gold foiled paper (also star embossed) are layered over the white photo mat.
More foiled paper, this time blue, mats a pair of cardstock "Postcards" and the photo.
My final addition were the foiled paper stars. I used a Momenta die and embossing system for my shapes. Most of the stars I cut from the Ebony Glossy foiled paper I placed under the photo mat. A few were cut from circles I saved from a previous project. I added the stars and their circles, why not!
Stop by my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.

Scrap On!

How To Make A Shaker Card

Hello ScraPerfect friends!
Lisa here to share a fun shaker card tutorial.
Here is my finished card:


I cut a piece of patterned paper for the front of my shaker. I cut a circle out in the center of it:


Using The Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap attached, I put a thin line of glue around the circle on the backside:


I placed a small ziplock baggie over the opening:


When the glue was dry, I stitched around the circle, leaving a small opening at the top to add my confetti. I placed beads and sequins in the baggie: 


Then I finished stitching the circle:



This is a fast and easy way to create a shaker card!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with us!

Quick And Easy Way To Add Tack To A Cutting Mat

Hello there, welcome to the ScraPerfect blog!

Michelle here to share a quick and easy way to add tack
to your cutting machine mats. And an easy way to clean up too.


To give extended life to the tack of cutting mat's, please see Amy's video of a full cutting mat restoration at the link here, which is featured on 
ScraPerfect's YouTube Channel.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Plhg_ytS5To&t=11s

For my quick version (as I was in a pinch with time) I cheated a little.
All you need for this project is:
Best Glue Ever
No-Clog Writing Tip
Best Cleaner Ever
Silicone Craft Tool or Silicone Spatula 
Water Bottle
Wipes
Paper Towels
Heat Tool

The first thing I did, is used a wipe to wipe the surface of the mat, for a "cleaner surface" to apply a new layer of tack. I then let it air dry a few minutes before moving to the next step.

My mat, is a Cricut mat, and has grid squares, so I applied the Best Glue Ever using the No-Clog Writing Cap, dropping two drops per each square on the mat.


I then lightly spritzed the entire mat LIGHTLY with water, and proceeded to spread the dampened glue over the entire grid surface of the mat using my silicone craft tool.




I then set the glue/water blend using my heat tool, at a good distance away from the mat as I did not want to warp or melt the mat.

I then repeated the entire process, and my mat has a good, strong solid tack, good for quite a few uses until I can use Amy's method to completely restore.

And the clean up? No problem. 
I used the Best Cleaner Ever, and gave a couple of squirts to each side of my silicone tool, let it sit for few minutes, and then used a wipe to remove the Best Glue Ever, safely & effectively.


The Best Cleaner Ever contains zero harsh chemicals or fragrance, is skin safe and very eco friendly.

So, if you are going to create a card or project with your cutting machine, and your mat has lost its tack, you now have TWO options to save money & time, in adding tack back to your mat.
