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?!

Angel In My Heart Ornament

Hi there, Kim here today to share a project that is very close to my heart.  I found some mini wooden bowling pins left over from last year and was inspired to turn them into some special Christmas ornaments.  I turned the pins iHi nto angels. I made one for myself, my Mom, and my daughters in memory of my Dad that passed away earlier this year.  I am happy with the way they turned out and that they will honor someone very special on all of our trees this Christmas.  I would not trust any other adhesive on anything as important as this other than Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect.  Here is what I started out with, after I gave each pin a coat of white acrylic paint:


Of course angels have to have wings, so I used some lace applique wings from my stash. To make them a bit sturdier, I gave them a coat of Mod Podge Pearl to make them stiffer and give them a pretty shimmer.


If you look closely, you can see how much of the Best Glue Ever I used on the upper right corner of the wing. A little goes a long way!


I also put a tiny line of the Best Glue Ever on the painted wooden pin for maximum hold.  I have the No Clog Writing Cap on my bottle of glue to help make sure I don't use too much glue.  It's great for precision and writing too!


Once the wings were secure, I applied more of the Best Glue Ever before applying a piece of bling to cover where the wings meet.


Here is the back side of the bling.  I waited until the Best Glue Ever was turning clear before placing the bling on the back of the ornament because of the size of the embellishment.


Before placing the bling, I also attached some crinkled, white, seam binding to serve as a tail and to hang the ornament with.

I wanted my angels to have some sparkle too, so I drew lines around the bottom of the ornament with the Best Glue Ever.  Then I used a  paint brush to spread the glue around in an even coat.


Next, I placed my angel in a jar of glitter for a few seconds and then tapped it on the edge to get the excess off.  I also placed a tiny silver crown on my angel's head with the Best Glue Ever.  For quick and easy clean up, I squirted some of the Best Cleaner Ever on my hands and was good to go in a flash. I love the way these turned out and know my family members will cherish them.  Hope you like them too:


I made more than one angel, some have glitter and a pearl trim, and some don't.  These photos show the front, side, and back of the ornaments.  This simple but meaningful project was so easy because of the versatility of the amazing Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect.

Fun Fall Altered Canvas

Hi there! Today I am sharing a Fall project with you.  Have you ever started a project and lost inspiration and set it aside?  I had one of those from last Fall that I was determined to finish.  Here is how it turned out, thanks to my ScraPerfect products:


Here is what I started with, a canvas that I made a background on with water color pencils and a water brush, that sat for a year.


I jazzed it up a bit with some metallic copper ink and Distress Crayons, then got out my cutting machine and the Best Glue Ever and got inspired.  I cut out a Fall design and used the Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap on and glued each word or letter on with small dots of glue.


I still wasn't happy with it because it was one dimensional, so I got out some embellishments and went to town. I used the Best Glue Ever to highlight some elements of the design by adding glitter and micro beads.


I placed the brown button with the help of Embellie Gellie.  I don't fiddle with small items anymore since I started using this over a year ago, I love it!




I also used the Best Glue Ever to adhere some orange roses coated with copper glitter to the canvas.  I cut some multi colored leaves out from both plain and textured card stock and coated them with micro beads for interest too.  I put foam squares on the back of the card stock leaves to make them pop.  I recycled the  leaves from the roses and attached them to my canvas with the Best Glue Ever.




For more embellishment , I used the Best Glue Ever to glue some brown braided trim around the outside of the entire canvas.  It looked more finished to me with it. Because I like bling, I also attached some beaded trim to hang down from the bottom.


My final touch was to add a loose bow to the top corner, made from a brown nylon material.
I applied some of the Best Glue Ever, waited for it to set clear, then held my bow in place for a minute until it bonded to the canvas.


I noticed at this point, that some glitter and micro beads had clung to my canvas where I didn't want them.  In hindsight, i should have wiped the canvas with the Perfect Crafting Pouch before getting the glitter out.  Well,everything can be fixed, so I tried the technique after the fact and it still worked great!  I will be leaving mine on my craft desk from now on so I don't have to learn this lesson again the hard way.


At this point, I was finally happy with the end product, hope you like it too!

Quick and Easy Altered Vintage Spoon Featuring the Best Glue Ever

Hello everyone! I am here today to share another project made simple with the Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect.  I recently went to a Vintage Market Fair and found some vintage cutlery to play with. Check out this gorgeous spoon I altered:


This is what it looked like before I started:


  I started by taking some Prima paper and fussy cutting some roses.  I applied some of the Best Glue Ever, using a bit more than I thought needed, since it had to bond to metal.  I then waited until the glue was clear before attaching to the spoon, about 5 minutes.



I wanted this to have a winter feel, so I brushed on some Best Glue Ever instead of a decoupage medium, then added my homemade snow mix (snow and lots of glitter).


Then, I started embellishing with flowers, Dew Drops, and tiny rhinestone bling. I was able to place these with ease using Embellie Gellie. I also used a medium sized glue dot made from the Best Glue Ever to attach pink and white seam binding to the underside of the spoon.


I also embellished the pink paper roses by adding small dots of  the Best Glue Ever on them and then sprinkling them with some snow/glitter mix. As you can see, I always use a No Clog Writing Cap on my bottle of glue...it's amazing!  It ensures precise glue placement and prevents me from using more than needed. I also used the adhesive to attach a piece of pink micro pom pom trim around the round part of the spoon.  My final touch was to rub some Metallic Lustre in Rose Gold on the stem of the spoon for more color.  As always, I used a spritz of the Best Cleaner Ever on my hands to make cleaning a breeze!


I plan to also use the Best Glue Ever to attach the tab from a soda can to the back of the stem of the spoon so I can hang it up.  I hope you like how it turned out!  This was truly a project made fast and easily with ScraPerfect!

Foiling For Fall With ScraPerfect

Hi there!  Kim here today to share a Fall home decor project.  Fall is my favorite season, but doesn't really exist in Florida so I decorate like it does!  I found this grapevine wreath with chicken wire at my local craft store for only $2!  Now I just have to wait for Halloween to be over so I can hang it up.
ScraPerfect made this project quick and easy!  Hope you like my Fall creation:


I started out by wrapping a white pip berry garland around the wreath. Using my Silhouette Curio, I cut out the leaves and words out of colored card stock. I repainted the pumpkin because it was gold when it was given to me.  After the paint dried, I added some Tim Holz distress glitter in rust and swiped the pumpkin lines with white ink. I handmade a bow with a gauzy ribbon and adhered that to the wreath.  Then I attached the leaves, then the pumpkin, and finally more pip berry garland.
As you can see, the pumpkin is embellished by mulberry roses in cream, orange, and brown. The orange roses have also been given a coat of glitter.  Here's a closer look:


For the  greeting, I foiled the card stock letters in orange and then attached them to pieces of the gauze ribbon  to make it easier to adhere them to the wreath. I added some of the glittered roses around the letters for embellishment there also.  Here is a closer look at that:


I have to say that the star of this project is the Best Glue Ever!  I did have to use large glue dots to adhere the pumpkin because of it's weight, but it is stuck on there very well.  I used varying sizes of glue dots on everything, depending on size and weight.  I allow my glue dots to dry a few minutes until clear to place item.  Here is a full list of the ScraPerfect products I used for this wreath:

No Clog Writing Cap ( for the top of the BGE bottle for precision)
Best Cleaner Ever (for clean hands)

And here is a last, closer look at my Fall decor wreath, thanks so much for stopping by!  Please check back, subscribe to this blog, and leave me a comment.



Happy Fall Y'all,

Witchy Fun!

Hello!  I am here today to share with you a little Halloween project that I made with some of the wonderful products from ScraPerfect.  This is the top half of my creation, keep reading to see the rest...


I started out with a white five by seven canvas, which I painted a coat of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in silver on.  I also painted a paper mache star black and added the Glimmer Glam and a few spritzes of white spray on it too.


Using my machine, I cut out the die cut design and used a very small amount of adhesive to attach it to the canvas. With the Best Glue Ever, you truly on need the tiniest dot.  To help ensure you don't waste glue, attach the No Clog Writing Cap to the top of the bottle.  When you are done and put the top for the writing cap on, it will keep your glue bottle from clogging too!



I adhered the die cut to the canvas and then added a large glue dot to the top in the center.  I tied some black lace and gingham ribbon in a knot and put it on top of the glue dot, pressing lightly.  For further embellishment, I tied some black and white bakers twine through the holes of a button and added that to a rosette, which I attached to the center of the bow.  I added some Dew Drops from The Robins Nest to the canvas as embellishment too using Embellie Gellie.  I actually misplaced the stick that came in the package, but never fear!  I grabbed another stick from my stash and just made another one, easily possible because of the generous amount in the package.

The canvas was now ready for the star, which I planned to dangle from the bottom with bakers twine.  But first, I attached another rosette to the center with an embellished button.  I then embellished it with more Dew Drops.  I added 2 black tassels and some white eyelash trim to dangle from the bottom of the star.
I used a medium sized glue dot to attach the dangling star to the canvas to make one piece.
My final step is always to give my messy hands a few spritzes of the non toxic Best Cleaner Ever.


I really had fun with this home decor piece that I made for Halloween, here is a close up of the finished star: 


And here is what the finished product looks like, now all I have to do is decide where to hang it! I hope you like it:
