UHU and a Sketch
I came across the UHU product blog, Glue with UHU, not to long ago and they were taking requests for UHU product samplers. I quickly volunteered to have a go at trying whatever UHU product that wanted to send to me. That was on a Friday and by Monday I had this awesome envelope of goodies to play with. They don't usually add more to their packages but on the day I volunteered they said that they would be putting in some surprises.
I received the UHU stic. It's a photo glue stick and is ideal for pictures and paper. The instructions say to apply on the entire area especially around the corners and edges.
So what do I think? I think that it was very easy to use and spread around without getting my fingers sticky. I did miss a few corners and I had to go back and apply the glue in the spots that I missed. It wasn't that hard to fix. True to the packaging it does not bleed through the paper. Just for being objective, I've let my card sit for a day to see how it stays together. So far it's as good as when I first assembled it. I feel comfortable in recommending UHU stic for those projects that call for stick glue. I will definitely finish off the stic they gave me as well as the fun stash of supplies.
THANKS UHU! :-) Using your product was a wonderful excuse to make another card.
Here's the card I made with the UHU stic and Amy R's weekend sketch. Now I couldn't quite get my focal image to fit the exact layout but I tried to get the rest right on. I layered different colors of Stickles on the spots to add more dimension and sparkles. Can you believe that I managed to squeeze in four different shades to them little spots? Yep, four different colors!
