A genuine surefire simple wreath

Colleen here with a genuine surefire simple wreath you can make in a matter of minutes.

I wrapped burlap ribbon around the wreath and actually secured it with a pin hidden under the burlap.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the flowers and leaves.  Because I want to hang this outside I put my homemade decoupage on the flowers and leaves and let them dry.  I actually applied 2 coats to both. If you want to make your own decoupage it is very easy and inexpensive.  I buy my white glue at the Dollar Store and the mixture is 3/4 white glue to 1/4 water.  After you have mixed the two, shake very well and you are ready to use it.

Now just layer your flowers together and add a brad in the center to hold the flowers in place.  I like to play with my flowers to get them bent into the shape I want but this is entirely up to you.  I adhered the flowers and leaves in place on the wreath by using The Best Glue Ever.

The final step is to make your bow and glue that in place using The Best Glue Ever.

Now you are ready to hang your super simple wreath.

Colorful Summer Layout Using ScraPerfect & Robin's Nest

Hey there ScraPerfect fans!
Lisa here today to share a colorful summer layout I created using ScraPerfect, Fancy Pants and Robin's Nest products. 

I created my background using watercolors. 
Then I added the Palm Tree Rub-ons from Robin's Nest.

Here is a close up of one of the palm tree rub-ons and check out those super cute flip flops! Both are perfect for a summer page!

I colored the "Beach Babe" title using Gelatos.
I fussy cut the "Today" from a card in the Safron Cards from the Robin's Nest. I also added a few more embellies from Fancy Pants.

Here is another palm tree close up layered with a few more embellies. 

I fussy cut the "Hello Sunshine" from  a card in the Safron Cards. This yellow paper, I had previously cut a sun and used on another layout, but kept the negative piece. It worked perfect as a layer under my photo. 

I attached pretty much everything on this layout using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap. I love this glue!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Best Glue Ever for Household Use

This is Kathryn here posting about my Favourite Glue Ever.  Most of my friends and family already know what a huge fan I am of ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever.

After a run with cancer and a recent move to a nursing home, my sisters and I have been left with the task of getting my father's home cleared out and ready to sell.  I am across the country and thankfully travel with the Best Glue Ever.  Just before an estate sale we had an issue with the security system door connection points  (it fell off.)  My sister says, oh no! we are going to need some heavy duty double sided tape.  I said leave it to me.

I used a thicker layer of glue so it would hold to the door jam and let it dry for about an hour.  I placed the connector back up and we were in business, no more beeping and notifications telling us that the door was open.

The Best Glue Ever has saved me several times with home emergency fixes.

Lawn Fawn Die Cut Card

Notecard, stamped and die cut.
Hi, Robyn Coburn here with another guest design post using my sweet Lawn Fawn set, "Believe in Yourself" and the Sweater Weather mini Paper Pack. I've made an embellished note card to send to my dear stepfather, who is battling cancer like a champ and has already confounded his doctors by outliving all projections. He loves cute critters.

As the base card, I had a pack of unbranded note cards with a woodgrain print. You can get similar cards from Lawn Fawn. Other elements are Color Box inks, washi tape, colored pencils, some buttons from my stash along with some waxed thread and scraps of craft foam as risers. Tools were Best Glue Ever, Cuttlebug, Embellie Gellie to help place elements, my Tiny Attacher just for the thread, my Westcott paper cutter, and of course Best Cleaner Ever and Perfect Cleaning Cloth to clean the stamps.

I die cut a jackalope in one of the dark papers for a shadow. I stamped the critter in black ink on the tiny polka dot yellow paper and then ran it through with the die. I used colored pencils to give it some dimension and colored in the wee horns. I attached the image to the shadow with the craft foam risers and just a few tiny spots of Best Glue Ever, letting it get a bit tacky for about a minute.

For the background I cut a strip of the leaf and acorn design - I love the scale of the mini papers prints. Then I trimmed and tore the green, keeping it slightly narrower than my card width. Even the monochromes have a bit of texture in the print. I wrapped my strip around the green, securing with BGE. I attached the bunny, then I fed the waxed thread several times through the gap between the foam bits. I secured the thread with the tiny attacher, then stacked two coordinating vintage look buttons over the staple and tied a bow. I glued the whole shebang to the front of the card and added a strip of washi tape as a trim.

* Full disclosure, I was intending to just use the washi tape to hold the piece down until the glue grabbed, as I knew it would even though the back of the piece was uneven with string and layers. But then I liked the look of it, so I left it there.

I stamped my sentiment on the lined paper, layered it with a trimmed mat of the same polka dot, and glued it in place.

Finally I stamped the jackalope onto the flap of the coordinating envelope that came with the card.

Very simple and quick.

Tip: To save myself some time later, I have stamped and then die cut a bunch of the little guys, and shadows, ready to color with different pencils.

ScraPerfect cross promo with Lawn Fawn

Hi... it's Bev today with a super fun cross promo with Lawn Fawn I made this card that is up at ScraPerfect. It was awesome to be creating with super fun bright and cute Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, paper and ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever with non clog fine writing Tip and other products. Together it looks fabulous. I chose the cats and bright paper collection to create this card.

Supply List:
Other: cardstock, ink, die, twine

To start this card I cut the background print and matted it. I wrapped around rows of twine and tied it off in a bow. I then used Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin' stamp and dies to stamp and die cut many accents to use on my card. I used many of the plain plaid papers for these pieces. 

Instead of scattering the stamp and die cut cats and accents I chose to use another die to base them. It is very thin when cut.

Using a tweezer to support it I used the amazing fine non clog tip added to The Best Glue Ever to adhere it to the card.

Now my card is ready to add the cute critters and accents. 

You can trim your card as little or add more to your liking. 
When I am all done I usually have very sticky fingers and The Best Cleaner Ever resolves that instantly. Also if there is any glue residue on the card that is sticky I use the Perfect Crafting Pouch to gently wipe over the sticky section and it's gone.


Also here is the Lawn Fawn FB link.


Thanks for joining me today....be sure to visit often when I create again using The Best Ever Glue and other amazing Products. Take time to visit the store please.

How To Adhere Ribbon With The Best Glue Ever

Hey there scrappy friends!
Lisa here today to share a tip with you for attaching ribbon to a card or layout. First off, here's the card I created using items from the Robin's Nest  and ScraPerfect:

I use to struggle with applying ribbon to a card. I have tried pretty much everything- glue, double sided tape, stitching. Almost all the time, it bunched, wasn't straight or something. I was pretty skeptic about trying the Best Glue Ever, but once I did, I won't go back to anything else!
It's easy to use:
Apply a small amount in a line where the center of your ribbon will go. I use my finger to spread it evenly. Once it dries to a clear finish, you can add the ribbon. What I love most about the glue is that it doesn't see through the ribbon!

Items used:

So next time you are needing some glue, try the Best Glue Ever!

Another Lawn Fawn Card

Lisa  here today and I am excited to share another card I created using Lawn Fawn and ScraPerfect products!

To create this card I used  the Perfect Crafting Pouch on my white cardstock. This helps get a nice crisp image when stamping. Then I used the Elphie Selfie Stamps and stamped them on the white cardstock using black ink. I colored the images using a small paintbrush and watercolors. Once they were dry, I used the Elphie Selfie Lawn Cuts and ran them through my Cuttlebug. I love the white edges around the stamped image! Plus, it was so easy to do!
I used the Best Glue Ever and some foam tape to adhere my stamped images to papers from the Perfectly Plaid papers.
Here is a close up of all the dimension of my card:

Here is what I used to create this fun card:

I love these Lawn Fawn stamps and Lawn Cuts and will be getting more of them in the future!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
