help when I am die cutting, you know whats its like getting the fiddly bits of paper out.

I used the Perfect crafting pouch to dust the paper and the die 

You can wipe the powder of after with your Perfect cleaning cloth

This die cut perfectly needed to use poky tool on a few bits but they all came out cleanly 
and perfect I will definatly be using my perfect crafting pouch when I cut from now on.

ScraPerfect Dt Project using Best Glue Ever and Bottle Caps

Hi Beautiful people Friday again and I have a fab crafty post for you
making decorated Bottle caps using Best Glue ever

Look at these pretty bottle charms 
I punched out some images using a 1inch punch
I used the best glue ever to stick the images to the inside of the bottle caps, I added a clear 
acrylic using the glue which then dries clear.

I then punched some holes into the bottle caps and some jump rings, then added some charms
I also tried adding some buttons to some caps and they worked out fab to.

I  always use The best cleaner to tidy up my desk

Don't they look cute

Card Using the Best Glue Ever for ScraPerfect

Hi all Wendy here and it is a fab Friday
and today I have a have made card for you, and on this card
I used the Best Glue Ever and Holo Foils.

For my  ScraPerfect Dt Project

I used the Best glue ever to add my layers to my card I have a full video below

I used a wood sentiment and coated it with The Best Glue Ever then let it dry you will know when its ready as it will go from white to clear and be tacky to the touch
I then used one of the Holo Foils called the silver Star 
I put it over the tacky glue on the sentiment rubbed and voila 
a wood sentiment turned into an amazing silver embellishment.

Then I added some Best Glue Ever to the balloon and sprinkled some fine glitter on it for that extra sparkle.

To finish my card I used some stickles with the smallest no clog writing cap 

I then added the stickles to my flowers.

Below is my Youbue Video showing me making this

ScraPerfect DT Project home decor using Best Glue Ever

Hi everyone Wendy here I hope you are having a great Friday, today I have a great project for you using 
the Best Glue ever of course

The project I created is a lovely decor piece for your home, or craft room

I used the best glue ever and decoupaged a pretty rose serviette 
then added glitter for that bit of bling and because the best glue ever stays tacky it was great for adding the glitter to 
I sealed it with a bit of spray varnish from my stash

I then decorated it with flowers also from my stash

 and finished of added some white paste to the flowers and butterflies for that extra shabby look

In making this project I also used the Best Cleaner Ever

Also I have added a video of me using the Best Glue Ever on my project
