Sew Cute!

Hi everyone, I am here today to share a trio of sewing themed projects that I created.  These projects were done thanks to a wonderful collaboration between the ScraPerfect family of products and Lawn Fawn. I really enjoyed using the Sewn With Love dies and matching stamps in coordination with the plaid card stock and colorful twine.  What enabled me to make these projects in a flash was the Best Glue Ever, it is the ONLY adhesive that I fabulous is that!  I also used my Silhouette machine for these, here are my sew cute projects:

As you can see, I was able to only use the Best Glue Ever to glue cardstock, paper doilies, buttons, cotton trim, and twine.  For the heavier items like the buttons and twine, I made a glue dot and waited until it became tacky to put it on the paper.  On cardstock, I only had to use tiny dots of adhesive, less was more.
I also placed the buttons using Embellie Gellie, the best pick up tool around.  This helped avoid me using sticky fingers on my buttons and ensures perfect placement every time. For clean up, I sprayed some of the Best Cleaner Ever on the Perfect Cleaning Cloth and cleaned the stamps I used.  I also squirted a small amount on my hands to remove the excess glue and ink...this stuff cleans anything!
 Here is a closer look at each item:

This card and little purses would make a great gift for the seamstress in your life, complete with mini sewing kit, pins, and tape measure.  Thanks so much for stopping by for a peek at my Sew Cute projects, please leave a comment.  Be sure to check out ScraPerfect for information on all the products, blog, videos, and more.  To see more of my work, please check out my blog, Vintage Rose Creations By Kim.

Shabby Altered Tin for ScraPerfect

Hi there, Kim L. sharing a project today with you for ScraPerfect .  I decided to test the Best Glue Ever on metal and it passed with flying colors!  Here is what I started out with:

I completely covered this metal tin, inside and out with the shabby and gorgeous paper from Prima, Tales of You and Me only using the Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect.  The bond was as strong as it is when I use this product on paper.  The tip I have to share is to apply the Best Glue Ever sparingly to the back of the paper in small dots and then WAIT.  After a few minutes, I then attached the paper to the worked like a charm!  I used this "glue and wait" method on this entire project. Here is the finished product, it will hold a gift for a dear friend.

When applying the embellishments to the tin, I put the Best Glue Ever on the embellishment rather than the paper and used light pressure due to the weight of some of the items.  I decorated the tin with flatback pearl trim, burgundy pleated trim, rose colored braided trim, a white lace bridal applique, and silk roses from
The Vintage Rose Emporium.  The loose pearls and cameo were from my stash.  

I papered the bottom and inside of the tin too.  You would think that with all that gluing I would put a dent in my bottle of the Best Glue Ever, but this amazing stuff goes a long way making it super economical.  One bottle should last approximately a year!

I did also use my favorite ScraPerfect product on this project, Embellie Gellie to place the loose pearls before adhering them to the top of the tin.  Here is a closer look at the top of the tin.  As always, I used a small bit of the Best Glue Ever to get the excess glue off of my hands in a flash.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, please leave a comment and visit ScraPerfect to check out the entire line of fabulous products.  If you would like to see more of my work, please visit my blog,

Let It Snow Shaker Card for ScraPerfect

Hello everyone, Kim L. here today to share a festive winter card with you.  I decided to test out the Perfect Crafting Pouch when embossing and it was fabulous!  Normally, before embossing I would rub a dryer sheet over my card stock as preparation or try and get excess embossing powder off with a dry brush.  The Perfect Crafting Pouch was so much better!  Here is my process:

I swiped the Perfect Crafting Pouch over the acetate before embossing and the wiped off the excess powder.  Then I embossed the music notes onto the acetate.  I am using acetate rather than card stock because this will be a shaker card.  It gave a super crisp image too!

 At this point, I started constructing my card.  I adhered the background patterned paper to my card with the Best Glue Ever, the best glue for paper crafting by far because of the amazing hold!  I used double sided foam tape on my acetate to give dimension and then started embellishing.  For the tiny sequins that I added, I used Embellie Gellie, my favorite pick up tool. It lasts forever!

I added an applique, a snowflake bling, and pearly white snowflake sequins inside the shaker.

I continued to embellish and added silver tinsel and blue and white seam binding as a tassel on the top corner of my card.  I glued some white pom pom trim to the bottom of the card with the
 Best Glue Ever.  I also added a paper doily that I sprayed light blue and a sentiment to the card for more interest.  I love the way it turned out:

  Once the card was done, I used a small a amount of the Best Cleaner Ever on my hands for clean up.  Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to subscribe to the blog, leave a comment,  and check out all of the fabulous products from ScraPerfect.  To see more of my work, please stop by my blog

Until Then,

Shabby Chic Christmas Sleigh

Hello Crafters, Kim Lippincott here today to show you a shabby chic sleigh that I created.  If you love pink and white, this project is for you!  I got this kit from Shabby is Chic Boutique.  Check out how it turned out with the help of some amazing ScraPerfect products:

The sleigh was glittery gold, so I started by painting it light pink.  Then I used my Best Glue Ever to apply the laces and pink pearl trim.  After spraying the large doily shabby pink, I also glued it down with the Best Glue Ever.  I love what a great hold this glue has and how little you have to use!  I then filled my sleigh with loose cream pearls and added some resin roses...yummy!

I again used my glue to add pink grosgrain ribbon to cover a jar that is holding cream bottlebrush trees, helping them to stand tall in the sleigh.  I got out my trusty and easy to use Embellie Gellie to set the rhinestones and snowflake embellishment.  This is one of my products because one package will last any crafter a lifetime!  A white shabby bird was added next and then some ribbon roses, all adhered with the Best Glue Ever.  I also decorated a wreath that is backed by a bow to hang from the back of the sleigh.

I hope you all enjoyed my sleigh, I can't wait to display it under my pink and white Christmas tree!

Shabby Angel Ornaments

Hello everyone!  I am in the holiday spirit and love ornaments, so can't wait to show you my latest project.  I altered the most adorable mini wooden bowling pins and turned them into angel ornaments with the help of ScraPerfect.  I sell a kit to make this ornament in my store,  The Vintage Rose Emporium.  Here is a photo of some of the things I started out with:

The first thing I did was gesso and paint the mini pin light pink.  I lightly brushed on some pink stickles and then used the Best Glue Ever to glue some trim around the pin to make the angel's dress.
I also used it to adhere pom pom trim around the collar.  Using the Best Glue Ever, I made some glue dots and used them to attach some feathers to the back of the pin for wings. I of attached a piece of white ribbon with a glue dot to hang the angel on the tree.  I love that you couldn't see the glue through the ribbon!

When it came to adding finishing touches, I used my favorite pick up tool Embellie Gellie. It is the best at releasing your embellishments, you'll never be a butterfingers again with this amazing stuff!

I wanted to give my angel a face, but a painter I am not.  I didn't think I would have enough control with a small paint brush to do a good job.  So I put the No Clog Writing Cap on my paint bottle...perfect solution!

Here is the end result, I love the way this sweet angel turned out.

 I had so much fun making her, that I made two.  I hope you like them and feel inspired to use your
ScraPerfect goodies and make some angels too!  Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment.

Shabby/Vintage Christmas Project for ScraPerfect

Hello everyone!  I am in the Christmas spirit already so am excited to share this project with you.  I couldn't have made it without ScraPerfect ! I used a cream book box from Graphic 45 and the Sweet Peppermint line from Prima (paper, journaling cards, roses, leaves, and trim).  Take a look:

First off,  I have to tell you what an amazing hold the Best Glue Ever has on paper!  Honestly, I won't be using any other adhesives when paper crafting.  I glued mint green card stock on parts of the box followed by various pieces of patterned paper.  I also used the Best Glue Ever to adhere the red sparkly trim to the box.  The pearls from my stash already had adhesive and I used hot glue to secure the roses, leaves, and bottle brush pieces due to their weight.  I distressed the edges of the box and paper with the Tim Holz Tea Dye distress ink pad.  Here is the inside of the box:

I used more of the paper, trim, and pearls on the inside of the box.  Because I had stray pieces of bottle brush getting everywhere, I ran the Perfect Crafting Pouch over the inside of the box to 
activate the anti static properties before I glued the crocheted doily down and problem fixed!  Then 
I added the embellished bottle brush tree.  Here is a side view too:

 The box also came with a tag book, so I decorated it to match the box.  I hope you like it!

Again, I used the Best Glue Ever on the papers and all trims and lace.  I also glued some snowy iridescent flakes on each tag in the booklet.  Before I did that, I put the No Clog Writing Cap on my
bottle of Glossy Accents (that is always clogged), and it worked very well!  I used that to outline some of the text for depth. I distressed and tied some seam binding to the ring of the book to give it a more vintage feel.  And since I got glue on my fingers from pressing lightly to get the snow to stick, I got out my Perfect Cleaning Cloth and squirted a bit of the Best Cleaner Ever  on it and had clean hands in a jiffy!  Here a the other pages of the tag book:

Spooky Cute Altered Altoid Tin for ScraPerfect

Hello everyone!  Halloween is approaching and I was inspired by my friend Michelle Wells, who taught a class on altering Altoid tins, so I gave it a try with some ScraPerfect products,  Check it out!

I could not have completed this project without The Best Glue Ever!  It provided the perfect hold to attach everything to the metal Altoid tin.  I removed the lid of the tin and then covered it with two coats of black gesso.  I used The Best Glue Ever to glue the paper to the inside of the tin and glue dots to attach the ribbon around the edges.  For dimension, I added some foam tape to the back of the gold photo embellishment.  

On top of the tin, I used The Best Glue Ever again to glue the embellishments to the black rose from The Vintage Rose Emporium.  I made some larger glue dots and used them to affix the rose to the tin. For the bottom, I mounted the tin on a wooden knob that I painted orange and then covered with black lace. A dollop of The Best Glue Ever and light pressure for a few minutes to set worked like a charm to attach the finished tin to the base.  Finally, to remove any excess glue on the project and my hands, I used a small amount of The Best Cleaner Ever on the Perfect Cleaning Cloth.  The cleaner is amazing and I love that it is eco-friendly!
