ScraPerfects Best Glue Ever is perfect for adding just a little adhesive to the book page. Since the paper is thin and the glue only takes a small amount I don’t have to worry about my paper buckling.
Painting paper is a lot of fun. I like the ability to change the paper to match my project by just adding craft paint.
For the past year, I have stopped buying flowers in color. I only purchase white or natural colored flowers. The reason is I already have a stash of colors that I don’t use because these don’t match my other colors. So I found that if I use white or natural flowers I can change those to any color Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I would like.
Tulip Dimensional Glitter Paint has been one of my favorite products to use to add a little sparkle. It doesn’t take much and looks so pretty.
The Embellie Gellie helps with placing the rhinestones just where I want them to be on the flowers. Sure keeps me from dropping a bunch of rhinestones.
Making the Super Easy Altered Paperclip was so much fun that I ended up making 10. Check my shop for the sets I have for sale.
