New Goodies

I got some yummy new Cuttlebug goodies from Your Memories Here and had to play right away. This card took me all of 10 min! The Cuttlebug set I used is the Damask Frame Combo, go order yours HERE. While playing I discovered the the oval damask piece coordinates perfectly with the small classic oval Nestiblities! So it's a breeze to back the die cut with whatever color card stock you want!

I also got some new to me adhesive, Zip Dry by Beacon. I got it at my local Michaels and here is what I think about it. Overall it is a great adhesive, holds all types of embellies firmly to your paper including metal and it is true that it does not wrinkle your paper, which is fabulous!

The two things I really dislike about it are, it has a definte odor and it "threads". You know, like when you use a hot glue gun and as you pull the gun away it pulls threads of the glue out and can be quite messy?! This glue does do that, though not to extent of a hot glue gun and it's not hot, so it's not too bad. The redeeming thing about it even with the glue threads it is super easy to clean up! Literally just rub off any excess or use an adhesive remover and it comes off without ripping or leaving your paper dirty.

So overall I really like this adhesive and would recommend it as a great liquid adhesive to have.

Thanks so much for dropping by:) Later this week starting Thursday I have some sneak peeks from Sherrod Studio to share ;)
