The Goods Are Arriving

Right after a show or placing a big order, we turn into kids waiting for Santa.  Of course, we’re waiting on UPS, FedEx and the mailman instead, as we anxiously await the arrival of all the new goodies we’ve just fallen in love with!  The products ordered at last week’s CHA show in Schaumburg have begun to arrive, starting with Deco-Foil and Therm-O-Web products!  Foil is a HUGE trend in crafting right now and there are many fun and easy new ways to add that special shine to your projects!

Deco-Foil is a perfect place to start.  With about a dozen solid colors and several specialty patterns to choose from, you will find exactly the right one for your project.  The talented people at Therm-O-Web have developed a number of great adhesive products to work with the foils, including a specially formulated liquid adhesive that you have to see and try for yourself!  This glue dries to a tacky finish, so you can actually draw your own designs, outline a printed image or just doodle at random, then add a finish of foil without a smeared, runny mess.  Come in to see samples and hear more about how this works!

Want to add foil to FABRIC?  We’ve got you covered!  How about creating some dazzling, dimensional embellishments using your favorite die cutting machine?  No problem – we have just the thing to make it happen with ease!

Also just in from Therm-O-Web:  Sticky Dot Sheets.  Available in two sizes, these are ideal for those tiny, odd-shaped embellishments that we all love to use.  Just lay your embellishment or cutout letters on the adhesive sheet, lift it off and apply it to your project!  These sheets are covered in tiny dots that will only adhere where you need them – the rest stay on the sheet to use for the next piece!  It’s a quick, clean, easy way to adhere all those fine-line bits & pieces to your card or page!

More new treats are on the way – stay tuned!  Be sure to come in to see these products in person, though, because seeing them in action is why WE knew they belonged in the store; it’s why you will know they belong in YOUR craft room!
