ScraPerfect provides a number of awesome crafting products including Best Glue Ever, Best Cleaner Ever and Embellie Gellie. The primary focus is on papercrafts including cards and scrapbooking, but the products work for all kinds of DIY and crafting because they can be used on a multitude of materials including wood, metals, plastics and textiles. This means there is a nice range of different types of projects to view, and links to videos with steps. As a design team emeritus, I’ve contributed mixed media holiday themed decor in the past.
