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!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my spooky cute altered Altoid tin, please leave me a comment.  You can see more of my work on my blog Vintage Rose Creations by Kim

ScraPerfect and Glass Project - Elegant Candle Holders

Hello everyone!  I am happy to be with you today to share a tutorial for a project that is special to my heart.  The candle holders that I made are part of the centerpieces for my upcoming wedding.  It was important that they be durable so I choose The Best Glue Ever for this project and am very happy with the results!  I started out with a plain glass candle holder.

I added lots of loose pearls to the inside and put a flameless candle on top of the pearls as my base of the project.

Now I used The Best Glue Ever to adhere some braided trim to the bottom rim of the candle holders.  I used tiny dots of glue along the back of the trim, a little goes a long way!  I held onto the trim for a few minutes once I placed it on the glass for an extra strong hold.  I did end up with glue on my fingers this way and a bit on the glass where it didn't belong.  No problem, I got out my
Perfect Cleaning Cloth and used a small amount of The Best Cleaner Ever and clean up was a breeze!

Now it was time to embellish, I handmade ivory chiffon singed petal flowers with pearl centers and glued 1 large and 1 medium flower to the side of the glass candleholder.  After that I twisted together a few pearl stamens and glued them in between the 2 flowers for the final touch.

Aren't they pretty finished and with the candle on?  Now I have to make the rest!  Couldn't  have done this project without my ScraPerfect supplies.  I needed the glue to dry clear as the candle holders can be seen all the way around, The Best Glue Ever really delivered!

                               The ScraPerfect products that were used in this project are:
              The Best Glue Ever, the Perfect Cleaning Cloth, and The Best Cleaner Ever

Until Next Time Crafters,

Denim and Lace Shabby Canvas for ScraPerfect

Hello Crafters!  This is my first project as a Designer with ScraPerfect and I challenged myself to make something without using paper.  I wanted to see how well The Best Glue Ever would work on canvas.  I was astonished at how well it holds and couldn't believe that only a few dots of glue held this entire project together!

I am a hands on crafter and got The Best Glue Ever on my hands in short time pressing the handkerchief, trims, and laces on my canvas.  My tip is to use something like a wooden skewer to apply gentle pressure to the material you are adhering for about 30 seconds.  I was able to clean my hands in a flash by spraying a small amount of The Best Cleaner Ever.  This stuff is amazing!

The Best Glue Ever was strong enough to keep this ceramic medallion on my canvas easily.

It also held my handmade rolled flowers, appliques, and bling.  I used one small dot of The Best Glue Ever to make my own dangle trim out of seam binding at the bottom of the canvas too.

I opened my package of Embellie Gellie and used it to attach the loose pearls and rhinestones to this project so quickly!  I was impressed at how easy it was to get the bling from the stick to my project. The amount in the little cute pink case will last any crafter a lifetime too!

Shabby Holiday Decor

Hi there, Kim here with my second Guest DT project for Shabby is Chic Boutique. This time I altered a glass block and turned it into a shabby Christmas décor piece.
I started with a glass block and glued wide lace around the outside, followed by 2 rows of mini flat back pearl trim. I adhered a piece of cardstock to the back of the block that has the message “Merry and Bright” on it and glued some lace from SCB under it.
On the front, I added some of the gorgeous blue lace from Shabby is Chic Boutique and some silver tinsel trim from my stash. In the center on the top I attached a stunning piece of rhinestone bling, also from the store. I love the look it gives the piece, almost like icicles. I also decorated the corners a bit by adding some silver stars and mini white foam roses that have been sprinkled with glass glitter.
Layering a handmade flower made from the white chiffon trim and light blue seam binding from SCB created the embellishment on the top. I also added some light blue ribbon, white tassels, and light blue pearls from my stash.

I hope you enjoy my project! I had so much fun thinking about winter and the holidays in this sweltering heat. Please check out Shabby is Chic Boutique and thank you so much for looking!

Shabby Chic Holiday Snippet Roll

Hello there! Kim N. here today, and I am honored to be the Guest Designer for August and excited to share my shabby holiday snippet roll with you. It is my first snippet roll and I had a lot of fun with this project!

I started by covering a spool with gesso and then fabric from Shabby is Chic Boutique.

  I constructed a diorama on the top by attaching a shabby flower that I made. I then added the bottlebrush trees, pink pearl stamen, feathers, and flowers from my stash, and adorable buttons from the store. On the underside of the top, I attached the white pleated organza trim from SCB that I am in love with.

The snippet roll base is more fabric from Shabby is Chic Boutique with white crochet lace and then a layer of the gorgeous pink sheer embroidered wide lace on top. Then the fun part comes, layering the bits and snippets of various laces, trims, and appliqués. Everything on the snippet roll is from Shabby is Chic Boutique. I glued most of it down with Fabritac, but some pieces were also pinned down.


  I also fussy cut some roses out of the fabric and added them throughout the snippet roll. To attach the snippet roll to the spool I used a white and pink heart pin from my stash.

I hope you enjoy my project, thanks for looking and be sure to stop by Shabby is Chic Boutique soon!

Crafty Blessings,
