Binder Lettering

Hello All

It’s Glen here with a project that I’ve been trying to get to for a long time. I have several of Tim Holtz’s
Stamp Binders and I always get them mixed up but now I’ve started the solution to this problem. I’ve taken some of the grunge lettering and using the Best Glue Ever, I adhered some tissue paper to each letter and let them dry.

I added some Distress paint and allowed to dry before using the Best Glue Ever to place them on the spine of my binder. I had to jumble the letters a bit to fit the spine but I am pleased with the results.

So here is the finished project that looks good and helps me work faster at a glance. Thanks for stopping in today and don’t forget to visit the ScraPerfect website for great products to make scrapping BETTER!
Happy Crafting

Recollections Photo Box-Part 2

Hi Folks
It’s Glen here for you now with the second installment of my project!

A small amount of glue.

I start decorating the edges of the lid with papers, I chose a theme of old time photography and film-making as a theme for this box but I have ambition to make a Steampunk and a Secret Garden box someday too.

Front of lid time to drill!

I am using the Best Glue Ever with the No-Clog Writing Tip to apply the glue easily and sparingly as well as precisely where I want it!

Won these online woohoo!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             I decide to use only one draw pull on the front and save the other, but I also have to pry off the label holder and replace it after I apply paper. I use the Best Glue Ever to replace the holder after re-punching the lineup holes in the paper.

Corner guards.
The back lid and a side.

I use the always great  Embellie Gellie to pick up brads and place them in the holes of the corner guards.

So you can see it’s coming along nicely and next time maybe I’ll be able to show the final reveal. That is if I don’t go too far with my embellishment! But it wouldn’t be so easy without the wonderful products available at ScraPerfect. Go there and see all that’s available. Well with more snow and ice tonight and a very big storm this Sunday predicted, I’ll have plenty of time to create. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to check the other projects on this blog.
See you soon

Embossed French Card

Hello
It’s Glen here to show you a quick and easy card I made using products from ScraPerfect!

First I took a piece of card stock that I had embossed previously. It’s sometimes good to just spend an evening just using folders and randomly making elements for future use.

I ink up a piece of background paper and put it on my card using the Best Glue Ever and then I am ready to place my embossed piece.

You can see how I practically draw the glue lines on the paper.

The ease of using Best Glue Ever with the No-Clog Writing Cap cannot be overstated, it allows you to precisely place glue and write with it in a very fine script which is awesome!

Here is the finished card which I have hand colored with blending tool and pens to accentuate the embossed details and it’s been photographed inside the lid of my other project, a nice photo storage box that will appear in my next post! Thanks for reading and be sure to check out the other posts on this blog for great work and inspiration.

My 1st Design Team – Oct 17th 2013

Well, it’s a banner day for me today because not only have I been accepted on the Scraperfect Design Team but I have also received my package of supplies to get started with today! There’s lots of neat stuff and a goody box of stamp art tools and supplies as well!

I feel good about this but have to admit it’s a little intimidating at the same time, I’m the only guy and I work slower than most people so I got to keep up and do what Picasso did when he said “It took me thirty years to learn how to paint like a child again”. I must do the same.

Peace

Glen
