New & Kits !

HI everyone !


I have two kits this week and a few new things as well as another post about the new KLiK jewelry parts (scroll down for that). I have several more orders to unpack but those things will have to wait until next week, lol.
If you scroll down to the KLiK post , you will see that it is a link to the post that I did on Facebook. You do not have to be on Facebook to view it. You can read it just like any other post. It is like a little photo album. I do believe that you can't comment on the post directly if you are not a Facebooker, but you can comment here as usual or email me. I will probably do this more often because the posts with many photos take me SO LONG on the blog !! I have to load & edit the photos then  resize every photo individually and then load them all again ( which seems to take forever). Then I can do the post. On Facebook, I simply load the photos & add captions. Takes minutes. So in order to save a few hours every Wednesday, I will be linking to the posts with more photos. That will give me more time to unpack !! ;)

CARD KITS : I have tasked myself with using up a huge box of embellishments so every week will be a surprise ! This week I have a Christmas kit and a sea themed set of cards.

The Christmas cards use "Pixies" from Doodlebug. They are little embellishments with tabs on each side that slide over a teeny straw. They are meant to be used on layouts, decor, on cupcakes, etc... I decided they would work well strung on cards. On one card I did use the stick too. Here is the kit ...
($5 for the supplies for all 3 cards)

The other set is sea inspired ... calm , relaxing, serene colours. I have used some great papers from Pink Paislee called "Nantucket" as well as some seashell paper . The embellishments are linen-look cards, glossy hexagons, and sparkly 3D shells. I hope you like them ! ($5 for supplies for 3 cards)
NEW ...
We R Memory Keepers ... they have some new embossing folders, punch boards, and a trim & score board. Their tools are always excellent !
The embossing folders come in a 2 pack and are $12.59. The folders are 6x6 and have a great grid on the back of each one to make alignment very easy.
(Please note that they are 6x6 - be sure to measure your machine to see if it will take a 6" wide folder as there is no return on opened embossing folders. Thanks.)
Butterflies & Moorish style tile
Feathers & Ikat style design

Dots - big & small
Wood Grain & Birches

Chevrons
See the grid on the back of the folder ? I really like that idea !
Trim & Score Board :
Flower Punch Board :

MARKERS ! I just unpacked a selection of markers, both black & white.
White Markers.
These markers take a while to get started but once they do, they work really well, as you can see in the sample.
You have to shake the marker to get the mixing ball moving and then push it on the paper to get the ink flowing.
I will say it took a while to get it started but then I had no problem. So just be patient. :)
The ink is a nice solid white.
Only $2.69 each.
Black Markers.
Left to right ...
American Crafts Ultimate Craft Pens , black, fine-medium-broad.
Write on any surface including photos, stickers, ribbon, vellum, metal & glass. Quick drying.
Project Life Journaling Pens by Becky Higgins - black, .01, .03, .05
Fadeproof, waterproof, no bleeding.
Tombow Dual Brush pen - black. Fine tip & brush tip. 
GLUE ... THE.BEST.GLUE.EVER.
This Beacon 3-in-1 glue is the best glue I have ever used. I always see it being used & recommended by bloggers & crafters so I decided I would give it a try. WOW !! It grabs quickly, tacks quickly, dries clear & fast. It was wonderful . I used it to glue the metal jar lid on my camera album. I just put down a very fine bead of glue, placed the lid on it ,and it held on. No slipping. Dried very quickly. It is my favourite glue now !

And here's a little bargain for you ... 6x6 paper pads , 30 sheets per pad, just $2.89 each !!

Well, that's it for now. Be sure to scroll down to the next previous post to see the great new KLiK and leather jewelry products . And come back next week to see what else I have unpacked !! Hope to see you all tomorrow - Friday !

Hi Pam ;
Would you please set one of the wood grain / birches emboss folders for me . And, FYI , they do fit the cuttlebug.
