A New Year with ScraPerfect!

Hi everyone, Kim. here  today to wish you all a Happy New Year and share my latest project for ScraPerfect.  I created a simple card for New Year's that I am excited to share with you, please take a look at the completed project:



 I began with a blank card base, and added some tea dyed vintage paper with the
Best Glue Ever with a No Clog Writing Cap attached for precision  Remember, a little goes a long way and the bond is amazing! I swiped that and the edges with some Tim Holz distress inks from my stash and then fussy cut the images I selected.  I embellished the images with stickles and added some bling that I placed with  Embellie Gellie and secured with the Best Glue Ever. Continuing with my layering, I added a vintage doily lightly swiped with lavender ink, a number one, a ribbon bow, and some ephemera and a Tim Holz chipboard quote from my stash.






As always, when finishing a project, I give my hands a few squirts of the Best Cleaner Ever and use a paper towel to get the ink and adhesives off.  I love it since it is non toxic.  This project was fun and quick to make and I'm sure would make the recipient happy to open. Here is a closer look at some of the details I added to my card:



Time saved and ease of creativity were possible because of the products from ScraPerfect.  Thank you so much for stopping by, please take a moment to subscribe to this blog and follow us on social media.  I wish you all a safe and blessed New Year!

My First Creation for Simply Too Create

Hi everyone, I am excited to announce that I am a part of the Simply Too Create Team for 2019!  I have made a card with a digi for my first project and am excited to share it with you.  Here is what I created:


I started with a blank ivory card and an image,which I stamped with black Staz On ink.  Then I colored and fussy cut the image. I sprayed the blank card with a Tattered Angels spray. I then used Twinkles paint by Deco Art over the image and set aside to dry.  I grabbed a vintage doily from my stash and attached it to the card with the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect.  As embellishments, I added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and small pink bling to the image.  I attached the image with foam pop dots from my stash.  I also added a bow from organza ribbon from the Dollar Tree with a pearl center.  I secured this with hot glue. A chipboard quote from Tim Holz finished my card off with the sentiment which was attached with hot glue. I was inspired to select this image by the show "Outlander" and am pleased with how it turned out.

Thank you for stopping by, please be sure to subscribe to the Simply Create Too blog as well as mine.  Check back every other month on the 4th to see my creations.  I wish you all to have a safe and blessed New Year!

See You Soon,
Kim

Fun and Easy Rustic Holiday Decor!

Happy Holidays everyone, I am here today to share a fun and cost effective holiday decor piece.  I went to the Dollar Tree recently and found these super cute signs and just had to alter them with some products from ScraPerfect.  The rustic country trend is following us into holiday decor this year and I for one am happy about that!  Hope you like what I created:


I began by pulling some potential goodies from my stash to add to my sign and then got out the Best Glue Ever since I knew it would adhere anything I needed to the wood sign.  Red Chinese braided trim was added all around the perimeter of the sign.  Makes it pop, don't you agree?  Then I began applying tiny dots of the Best Glue Ever for some embellishments. When using the Best Glue Ever, you should really have a 
No Clog Writing Cap on the bottle for additional precision and to make your bottle last longer.


I chose some pearls, so I grabbed my Embellie Gellie to insure perfect placement in the center of the snowflakes.  There is no other way to do this without turning your hands into a sticky mess.  This is a must have for any crafter that works with tiny elements in their art.




As you can see, I also added a trio of pearls on the center where the two edges of trim meet.  Ivory crocheted lace was also applied to the perimeter of the sign with the Best Glue Ever for added interest.
I really liked that this sign already had sparkle so I didn't have to add any.  These signs add cheer to any home during the holiday season and would make great gifts as well!  Once my project was complete,
 I squirted some Best Cleaner Ever on my hands and rubbed them with the Perfect Cleaning Cloth and my hands were spotless in two minutes.  Here is a look at my finished altered holiday sign:


I hope you like my quick and easy home decor piece and will come back in the New Year to see what I make then.  Kindly follow the blog, order your supplies today, check out all social media, and come back for updates and inspiration from ScraPerfect!  I would really appreciate it if you would follow this blog and leave me a comment, thanks again!

Holiday Blessings,

Kim Lippincott

Creating Artist Trading Coins with ScraPerfect is Easy and Fun!

 Fun with ScraPerfect!


Hello crafters, Kim Lippincott here with a super fun and inexpensive project...
Artist Trading Coins!  I love making these, because I only used paper from
 my scrap bin. I hope you will try some too and share them with your friends. 
 They are traded just like atc's are, so you can swap them quickly in groups
 with a minimal amount of postage.  
Here are some of my Artist Trading Coins:

1. Use your circle punch from your stash and punch out lots and lots of circles.
Then use the Best Glue Ever to adhere them to another circle for sturdiness.
Give your circles a quick tap before gluing with the

2. Now comes the fun part...start embellishing your coins!
 I used https://scraperfect.com/product/embellie-gellie/
since it can grab anything you can think of quickly and is a multi purpose tool.
 Use the bottom of the stick to tap your embellishments to hold them.

3. Some examples of items you can use to decorate your ATC's with are:
resins,stickers lace, ribbon, doilies, buttons, string, burlap, stones, stamps,
 micro beads, shavings, etc.
 This is the most challenging part of the process for me since I had too
 many choices!

No automatic alt text available.

4. Helpful Hints:  I should mention that Artist Trading Coins are meant to be
 flat for easy mailing, but I made lots of mine chunky!  I would also recommend 
using washable markers and not sharpies since they leave marks everywhere.  https://scraperfect.com/product/best-cleaner-ever/ is what to use after 
you finishthis project...it takes away the mess and your hands are ready
 to create again in a jiffy!

5. Thank you so much for looking at my Artist Trading Coins!
Don't forget to use the entire
family of products from ScraPerfect!

Until Next Time,

Kim Lippincott

Best Glue Ever To The Rescue AND Start The New Year Right Giveaway!!!!!!!!

Hi there, Kim here today for ScraPerfect.  I am sure I am not the only one who has been decorating for the holidays this weekend.  It's a tradition in our family, and everyone has their favorite decorations.  For my husband, it is the pair of wooden nutcrackers he's had for a decade. Here they are:


Now here is what they looked like when we unpacked them this year after being in the attic:


Can you see the problem?  My husband was sad, but I told him I knew just how to fix his nutcracker.  I retrieved my bottle of the Best Glue Ever (with the No Clog Writing Cap on top of course), from my craft room, and here's what I did:


I put thin lines of the Best Glue Ever on both the nutcracker and his hat and waited a few minutes before putting them together again.


I let the nutcracker sit overnight,and the Best Glue Ever really did come to the rescue!  It's perfect now and is in it's place of honor with it's mate in our home.


The Best Glue Ever isn't just for the craft room, you really can use it in every room in your house!  I am going to put a bottle in the tool chest for my husband just to make sure mine stays in my craft room from now on!

Since we are approaching the holidays, I am excited to announce that ScraPerfect has graciously allowed me to provide a fabulous "Start the New Year Right" giveaway!  The prize is a bottle of the amazing Best Glue Ever, with a No Clog Writing Cap, and FREE SHIPPING on anything you order from ScraPerfect.  How great is that?!
