How To Make An Attractive Card With Minute Details

Charity here with an attractive Spring card that is all about the minute die-cut details. The Cutting Dies I used are full of holes. Getting them to stick to my card base took strong glue in small amounts. Best Glue Ever is the only one for the job!
~ Hello Spring ~
 First I placed the peak-a-boo corner and bunny. I folded back the upper right corner of the card blank and pierced to holes. I added a few dots of Best Glue Ever underneath for extra insurance.
 The detailed corner piece and bunny are glued to the corner area with tiny dots of Best Glue Ever. The only way to get dots so tiny is with the No-Clog Writing Cap with 3 cap sizes and 3 tip sizes from ScraPerfect.
 I slipped beading thread through the pierced holes and tied a bow. Next I cut a 1" strip of Jade foiled paper the width of my card. I turned it into grass with Shredding Shears.
I needed the grass blades to move freely. I added a thin strip of Best Glue Ever along the solid edge, once again being most grateful for my No-Clog Writing Cap.
 Placing the large egg exactly where I wanted it meant I had to curl back the tip for more drops of Best Glue Ever.
 Careful placement was necessary because I wanted the grass to overlap the egg without obscuring the letters.
 The purple eggs are heavily perforated so I added drops of Best Glue Ever with the No-Clog Writing Cap.
 A couple butterflies finished off the spring scene. Another shot of this Hello Spring card shows the gloss of the foiled paper.

How to Use the Best Glue Ever to Make a Quick and Simple Card

Hi Friends -Kathy here from Create.365 and today's project with ScraPerfect highlights the Best Glue Ever!

I started this project with a top folding A2 white card base and a piece of white cored light lime green cardstock cut to the size of the card front. I ran it through my embossing machine with the folder shown and then sanded the surface to highlight the design.

The Best Glue Ever along with the No Clog Writing Cap made gluing the layers of my card securely together a super simple job. Things with deep texture can be hard to use adhesives like a tape-runner on, but the BGE works fast and with only a tiny one bottle will last you a really long time!

I stamped the solid flower image in a deep turquoise blue color, cut a square around it and layered it on to matching cardstock. I then used foam tape to adhere it to the card front for added dimension.

The inside sentiment is a sweet one!

I stamped the "hi friend" sentiment right on to the card front with black ink -using the built in banner area the embossing folder provided as part of it's design.

And that's all there is to this quick and simple card! Until next time, happy crafting with ScraPerfect~

Best Glue Ever for Clear Elements and Glitter

Hello and welcome to the blog today!  Shelly with you today sharing how to beautifully and easily incorporate clear and iridescent elements as well as glitter on your craft projects using Best Glue Ever.

Text across top photo reads:  "There are 341 miles to Phoenix, we have a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses" 

Best Glue Ever dries completely clear and is the best glue you will find for all of these applications:

  • Glitter:  apply a thin layer of Best Glue Ever to chipboard die cuts and add glitter - the glitter will stick to your die cut and WILL NOT flake and flutter off everywhere - no more mess!

  • Iridescent Sequins:  The No Clog Writing Cap allows you to use just the right amount of Best Glue Ever to apply tiny details.  No worries about BGE coming through the center hole - it dries clear.  I do find with my sequins the excess glue coming through the center hole can be a bit sticky, an easy fix - tap over top of sequins with the Perfect Crafting Pouch!

  • Glass and Acrylic Embellishments:  I wouldn't trust my beautiful vintage buttons with just any adhesive! 

  • Remember - you only need a SMALL amount of Best Glue Ever for strong, permanent adhesion!

  • If you want to add a little sparkle and shine to your craft projects, make sure you have the right tools from ScraPerfect!

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

Using the Best Glue Ever & No Clog Writing Cap

Lisa here to share a layout using The Best Glue Ever and the No Clog Writing Cap. This is my favorite go to glue and the fine tip makes it so easy to apply glue to small spaces!

I like to add The Best Glue Ever to pieces that already have adhesive on it because I want to be sure it will stay where I put it:

I am applying the glue with the No Clog Writing Cap attached:

I actually keep this cap on my glue bottle at all times- that's how much I love it!
I have the glue applied. Can you see the thin line?

Here I added some of The Best Glue Ever to a puffy sticker:

Here are a few closeups of the finished page:
The "Hello" chipboard piece is from Bella Blvd. I was planning on coloring it, but decided not to once I had all the other elements in place. I added a small half circle journaling block and a few puffy stickers:

I added a few of the tags from the collection and tied bows using the string that came with them. I added a label to put my date on, but forgot to add it, LOL!

Here I added another tag, diecuts and puffy stickers. I used a few mists to create my background. The yellow is from Recollections and the red is Fireworks.

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy my friends!

20-Minute Home Decor Repair With The Best Glue Ever

to the ScraPerfect blog.

Michelle here today to share a very 
quick & easy "repair" to a handmade decor piece,
that I had made years ago with toilet paper rolls.
Yes, toilet paper rolls.

I had a 12x9 frame that the glass had been
broken during a move, I saved the frame, and decided to
create a piece of wall art, to look somewhat metallic,
and used toilet paper rolls cut into 2 inch pieces, shaped, 
designed & glued within the frame.

The other day while dusting for cobwebs, I swiped the frame
and tore off one of the paper roll pieces.
ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever to the rescue!

I dolloped a line of small dots along the original glue line
and let it set about 5 minutes just to tack up a bit.

Once that had been done, I added the piece back to the original spot
holding it for just a few seconds.
While holding it in place, I had noticed a couple of other pieces that
were loose, so I gently pulled them away from their attached spots, and repeated the same above process.

While "working" on this art piece, I also freshened up the metallic finish using a Brass Patina Paste.

The entire "repair & refresh" only took about 20 minutes.

If you have not tried the Best Glue Ever 
what are you waiting for?
This  glue is a must have, not only for the crafter, but even for small fixes too.
So stop by the ScraPerfect store today and order a bottle of the Best Glue Ever for yourself.

Making Paper Purses and a Freebie

Hi everyone, Ginny M here today.  Back in 2011, I made 285 paper purses for my MA Women's Conference.  The project took me a month to make and it was a pain the whole time.  I had a terrible electronic cutting machine and bad glue.  This week I had to make 20, and thankfully I still had the same SVG file, a great cutting machine and The Best Glue Ever! So this time it was a snap and only took a few hours.

These little purses will be a table favor for our churches' women's group.  They will have a note card set and chocolates in them.

I cut 40 purses on my Cricut
I am sure there is a way to split the SVG file but it was just easier to use two cuts for one purse.

Just a tiny bit of glue holds the paper together.

Hold and press for a few seconds - no hot glue needed and no burned fingers!

I little squiggle of glue hold the top of the purse and no wrinkles in the paper from the glue

Best Glue Ever also held all the embellishments

A fun little project made easy with the Best Glue Ever!

Thanks for stopping by and here is a freebie for your paper crafting

Thanks for stopping by,
Ginny M
