The nice folks at Silhouette sent me some of their new double-sided adhesive to try out. And I played with it. And then people got sick (and by people I mean basically every single person that lives here has taken 1-2 sick days in the last 2 weeks). So, I’m finally at the computer and telling you about it. And the good news is that you still have through tomorrow to take advantage of the current Silhouette promotion. (Like, maybe if your Valentine forgets to get you something and you decided to get yourself something instead…not that I’ve ever done that…)
Here are the details up front:
use code “CRAP” and GO HERE to take advantage of any of the promotions, between now and February 14th.
OK, so the adhesive!
Remember like 3 years ago when I used the Silhouette sketch pens to make some art for above my bed? Well, we got some new bedding and the blue paper looks ridiculous. I decided to update the contents of the frames using the double sided adhesive and some flocking powder.
However, that is the only one you’ll see a picture of because I had a few problems.
The short explanation is this: the double-sided adhesive works fantastic on less intricate designs. Something like the teeny tiny inside cuts on a doily? Not so much. I did finally discover that weeding (removing the negative space pieces) whilst everything was still on the mat helped, but I’m still not up for 5 more frames worth of doilies…yet.
I went for some more basic cuts and the results were fantastic.
