Cleaning with the Best Cleaner Ever

Have you ever had a craft catastrophe? Today I want to share cleaning with the Best Cleaner Ever when tragedy strikes in your crafting.

Cleaning with the Best Cleaner Ever

A few years ago I was working with caulk near my sewing machine. Well, the device or caulking gun went crazy and pushed out caulk all over the place and some landed on my sewing machine. I quickly tried to wipe it up but it dried fast and I couldn’t get it all.

After trying all kinds of things to clean my machine I gave up. It has bothered me on and off over the years and when I got my ScraPerfect box of goodies I thought, hey why not try the Best Cleaner Ever?

The Best Cleaner Ever: Earth-Friendly Solvent for removing adhesive, ink, paint, and other stubborn stuff! It is Non-Toxic, Non Hazardous, Biodegradable and there are no harmful fumes.

Squirting a small amount on the area and spreading it around with my fingers I then let it sit for about an hour. It was easy to see that it was working some of the thinner areas of caulk was coming off.

To help remove more of the caulk I used an old key card to scrap a little and applied a little more of the Best Cleaner Ever.

When I wiped off the machine I was amazed at how clean it looked! Granted the machine is over 25 years old, but in the area where the caulk had been, it was new looking!

How to make Christmas Rosettes

Another element to share from the Golden Christmas Journals. How to make Christmas Rosettes. Sharing my tips on making some fun embellishments for your junk journal or for a greeting card or other projects you might want to make. Ooh, how about a rosette banner?

How to make Christmas Rosettes

My inspiration came because of one of the lovely members of the Friendly Junk Journal People group sent a RAK (random act of kindness to me). When I saw the beautiful Rosette I knew that I wanted to create my own version.

After looking over my stash, I collected the supplies I wanted to use. Remember to dig around in your scrap bin for papers for projects like this one. You could even just use scraps and make all kinds of versions to have on hand.

Using the scraps and supplies from my stash I created these Christmas Rosettes quick and easy.  I liked using scraps that may not work for other projects, but for something small these were perfect.

Take a look at your supplies. If you don’t have the punches try using the bottom of a glass or other object to make circles. Use a penny to make large scallops around the edge and then cut it out. Just have fun playing with the paper.

Making Gingerbread Men

Welcome friends. Today I’m Making Gingerbread Men. Working on a Christmas Junk Journal and wanted some handmade elements added. This is where I use stamps I’ve had for years and some bling that I had leftover from another project.

Making Gingerbread Men

When I found the gingerbread man stamp in my stash, I knew I wanted to make these to add to the journal.

Items used for Making Gingerbread Men.
ScraPerfect – Best Glue Ever
Colored Pencils
Stamped image on Kraft paper with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven
Flat back rhinestone
Distress ink – Vintage Photo
Blending tool

Here is a video showing Making Gingerbread Men.

For this project Making Gingerbread Men, I started with stamping the gingerbread men in Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven onto Kraft colored cardstock. Then I used my scissors to fussy cut the gingerbread men.

Choosing a few color of pencils I then colored in the areas I wanted on the gingerbread men. Then I used Distress Ink – Vintage Photo around the edges.

Sometimes it is hard to find the right glue to adhere items. The Best Glue Ever is perfect for these rhinestones as it doesn’t take very much and it holds quickly. Other glues the rhinestone would pop off the project. I just applied a small dot on the back of the rhinestone, used the tip of the glue to spread and then attached to the gingerbread men.

My hope is that I have inspired you to look differently at those items you have in your stash and use them in projects.
