The method for making this one sheet mini junk journal is very easy. Take the 12 x 12 inch sheet of paper and score at the 3, 6, 9 inch marks, rotate 90 degrees and score at the 3, 6, 9 inch marks. Then slightly crease the page so you can see the sore marks.

Make a cut down the center score mark and stop 3 inches from the edge.  Rotate paper 180 degrees and cut the outside two score marks and stop 3 inches from the edge. You will have a zig-zag looking sheet of paper.

Next fold the paper in an accordion fashion until the pages have been formed. Using the Best Glue ever adhere the pages together. Keeping in mind those pages you want to have pockets, leave the top open to slide a journal card inside.

Once the pages have adhered create the cover using scraps of paper cut to 2.75 inches square. Apply distress inks to the book and cover. Wrap one time around the journal with yarn and tie a bow. This will be the closure. Apply the Best Glue Ever to the cover pieces and adhere to cover over the yarn.

Embellishing A Christmas Wreath Quickly with ScraPerfect

Hi there!  Kim here today to share a Christmas project that was easy to embellish thanks to ScraPerfect.  I made a wreath that is so simple that if you can tie a knot, you can make it!  
All you need is a metal ring or wooden embroidery hoop (the size of your choice), about a yard of fabric, and some scissors.  I find making these relaxing and the variations in both fabric and embellishments make the inspiration endless.  For me, this wreath has more pizazz because of the embellishments.  Here is my Christmas wreath,what do you think?

Here is how I made it.  Cut (using your choice of regular scissors or pinking shears) 6 inch long strips of the fabric of your choice.  The strips should be 1 inch wide.  Start tying fabric strips around your ring.  When you get half way, pull them as close together as possible.  Keep going until your ring is full.  Fluff your wreath with your hands until pretty.  Here is what I did on mine:

Easy, right?  Now you are ready to embellish.  I used a store bought wooden ornament to hang down from the middle of my wreath.  To give it more dimension, I traced the lettering with the Best Glue Ever.  I was able to do this precisely since I have the No Clog Writing Cap on my bottle of glue.  It's a must have for precision work!

Then, I sprinkled some white, snowy glitter on top of the glue.  I let it cure overnight, then shook off the excess glitter.  I also tied some white seam binding through the rope loop to hang it from the top of my wreath.

I wanted to also use some small, wooden snowflakes as embellishments on my wreath.  I decided to heat emboss them with some sparkly, white embossing powder using my heat tool.  Whenever I am heat embossing, I use my Perfect Crafting Pouch.  It is the best at preventing stray or extra embossing powder (or glitter) from sticking due to it's amazing anti static properties!

To use the Perfect Crafting Pouch, simply swipe it across whatever you are embossing BEFORE you use your embossing pad.  A small tap works well too.

Next, I used the Best Glue Ever to adhere my embossed snowflakes to the end of the fabric strip.  I also attached some to the center of some organza flowers from my stash with the Best Glue Ever.  I also attached a pearl to the center of each flower and snowflake with the Best Glue Ever. To complete my wreath, I tied two pieces of white seam binding that I misted with water (and then scrunched up) to the bottom of my wreath.  As always, before I leave the craft room with messy fingers, I give my hands a couple of squirts of the Best Cleaner Ever.  Nothing works better on crafty hands and is non toxic too!

These products from ScraPerfect really made this project easy, quick,and clean.  Be sure to keep the Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap, the Perfect Crafting Pouch, and the Best Cleaner Ever on your craft desk ready to go. Here's another look at my Christmas wreath, hope you like it!

Thank you very much for stopping by today, please feel free to subscribe to the blog, leave me a comment, and check back often for more inspiration.

Until Next Time,

How to Decorate Your Planner for the Holidays Using The Best Glue Ever

Hello crafty friends! Kathy here from Create.365 and I've had some fun working with digital stamps from Verve for this planner spread. The first step was picking my color scheme -which I do by choosing my patterned papers. The papers here are from a holiday paper pack that I got at my local ACMoore. I then laid out my planner pages and marked the spaces where I wanted the paper to go. To quickly trim the rectangles to the perfect size I used my Happy Planner Classic sized box punch. 

Next, I colored the images I had printed out using my Spectrum Noir markers and did some minor shading with a white Prismacolor pencil.

After fussy cutting out all the coffee themed images,  I adhered everything to my planner pages using the Best Glue Ever along with the No Clog Writing Cap.

To add some more color to my pages I also added planner stickers, washi tapes and some subtle ink blending on several of the blocks plus all around the page edges.

To make the large snowflake shine and shimmer, I heat embossed it using a clear glitter embossing powder before cutting it out. I then also used a tiny snowflake punch on the extra embossed cardstock to scatter throughout the spread.

Of course, I couldn't resist using some Wink of Stella and Stardust Gelly Roll accents -that's the bit of glimmer you see above on the whip cream and the letters.

Below, you can see the highlighted definition I was able to achieve by adding the white colored pencil on top of the alcohol markers.

That's it for me today -so remember that the Best Glue Ever is perfect to use in your creative planning because you only need a tiny amount and it then dries clean and smoothly so it won't wrinkle or buckle up your pages! Until next time, happy crafting with ScraPerfect!

Absolutely Awesome (FRUGAL) Takeaways for Cardmaking!

Hi All-
Amy here with some tips I think you'll find VERY useful!  Especially because you're not making a Father's Day card in October, check out this first tip:

Tip #1: (relax) LOOK FOR techniques and ideas and try to resist being turned away because of color, theme, or embellishments used.

The fact that this is a Father's Day Card with embellishments and papers that are years old is irrelevant to the fact that you're making a Welcome Baby card and certainly don't have or want the paper or embellishment I do...

...SO overlook the Father's Day theme and check out how I:

     ...personalize ready-made embellishments. around an alphabet pack with not enough "D"s.
  ...coordinating random embellishments so they appear to "match".

How to Make Your Own November Project Life Cards

Good Morning crafter's Penny here today to show you how to make your own November Project Life cards.

So these are a few that I made just using simple stickers, and some pattern paper. Easy as pie! However I like to add a bunch of different embellishments to my cards like fabric, metal, epoxy, etc. So in order to do that I have to either purchase a glue for each of those items or find one glue that will work on everything! 

So that is when I found ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever ! Since I like to have a lot of control over where I place my glue I also purchased the No Clog Writing Cap

This cap allows for perfect placement of my glue, as shown here on my ribbon. It also takes very little glue to make it actually stay in place which I also love.

Here I am gluing a strip of bling ribbon in place with the same glue. So it also works on plastic!

Next up is metal!  I had this little metal embellishment for several years, and the original sticky back had lost it's glue strip.

So just a dot or two of glue and it's perfectly usable again! I really didn't need to use this much glue to hold this in place, but taking a photo, and squeezing out glue at the same time seems to be more than I can handle! LOL At any rate the important part is the glue worked just fine on metal as well!

Below are other examples of Project Life type cards I also made.

This card used die cut leaves, two stickers, and some ribbon.

Lots of fun cards here as well.

Okay so I got a little carried away! 

 Then it seems I couldn't stop!

I had lots of fun making these cards and they cost a fraction of the price if I had purchased them in the store. 

 I hope you have fun making your own cards! Till next time Happy Scrapping. Love Penny
