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)
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
See the grid on the back of the folder ? I really like that idea !
MARKERS ! I just unpacked a selection of markers, both black & white.
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 !
