Thankful-Giveaway

Due to a technical difficulty with posting images to the blog, I’ve got one final post for you today, this time from Stephanie. I know we said we’d close the giveaway today, but I’m going to leave it open until Tuesday at 10 PM EST. So make sure you comment on all the Therm O Web posts for a chance to win! I’ll post the winner on Wednesday morning.

Last week, I had the pleasure of getting to test out some fantastic products from Therm O Web. I will admit, I was expecting to get a few glue runners in my package, but I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box to find a wide variety of other great adhesive products! Aside from the basics like foam squares and adhesive runners, they included Glitter Dust Photo Corners, the ever fantastic Supertape, and my favorite new-to-me-product, Glitter Dust.

Supertape is the perfect remedy for adhering flat-backed flair! Not only is it thin, but it is really strong. I found myself using Supertape often to hold down those bits and pieces that a regular glue runner just wouldn’t hold. I love that it comes in so many different widths as well! Grab a couple of rolls and you’ll never be lost when it’s time to embellish.

I used the 3D Foam Squares to hold down my candy dots on my “It’s Here, Fall” layout. They were the perfect size and height to give me just a little lift. These also come in not just different thicknesses, but different lengths and colors as well. They are perfect for layering!

Glitter Dust was new to me, but it was pretty much love at first spray. I liked how the spray was thin enough to dry really quickly, but still gave good coverage–not too overwhelming, but not spotty and sparse. I honestly expected it to warp my cardstock, but once the spray was dry, my paper was completely flat! I fully expect to use Glitter Dust to my upcoming Christmas projects, and I may need to go grab a few extra colors, too.

Today Mandy Koeppen shares some great tips on working with Therm O Web:

This month I was happy to be able to spotlight one of my favorite adhesive companies while I created with the Cocoa Daisy Sweater Weather kit.

Thermoweb produces awesome adhesives. I love the new mini runners. They have that sticky stick that all crafters want in a good adhesive but they also are forgivable to when it comes to mistakes just simple do a little rubbing and start new. That makes this girl happy because I am always making mistakes or adhering to early then moving.

I also love the Zots for adhering embellishments such as metal, wood, paper you name it you can adhere it.
And we can’t forget the foam… The foam squares are one of my favorites! They stick, they can be cut, they come in multiple sizes what’s not to love.

photo2

Today I’m going to share 2 projects that I used multiple Thermoweb products on but just so you know Thermoweb was the only adhesive I used in my gallery.

LAYOUT1
This first layout I used my little mean green adhesive runner. I love that this little runners adhesive it diamond shape and very sticky.It made adhering all those different shapes and elements of this layout easy and if they needed to be repositioned I was able to do it.

When you have so much going on with pattern paper I love to give an added pop & dimension to my photos by adhering them with 3D foam squares.

photo4

The last thing that I used on this layout was the Zots. These things worked awesome for my stapled sequin cluster and are totally not going anywhere.

LAYOUT 2

photo9

For this layout I grabbed the same adhesives from the first layout but added the Glitter Dust Photo Corners.

photo6

If you know me you know I’m not into glitter it kinda scares me cause it’s mess and you can’t get rid of it. lol I was pleasantly surprised that when I opened the corners no glitter came out so of course I did a Mandy test: rubbed the corners and still no glitter on me AWESOME!!

photo7

I wanted added dimension on this layout so I knew the photo would be adhered with foam squares. Then I thought the glitter corners would give another added pop to the photo too so here’s how I made the look work.

Add a foam square to the center of the photo(this is so the photo doesn’t dip when its on the layout). Then add the photo corners to the photo.

 

photo8

 

Flip photo over add Foam squares to the back of the photo corners. TIP you can either use the smaller foam squares or cut the larger in half like I did.

Position the photo and adhere to the layout.

Thank you Thermoweb for supplying the wonderful adhesive products I worked with.

Again, thank you for joining us on this great week long collaboration! We encourage you to head over to the Therm O Web blog each day for more fabulous inspiration from their talented team (and a giveaway as well).

We had Therm O Web send five of our designers a box of different goodies and we sent some of their designers a September 5th & Main kit. Be sure to check out their blog all week for inspiration and a giveaway as well. And while you’re at it, head over to their Facebook page and tell them thank you for sponsoring the Cocoa Daisy giveaway, and if you haven’t already, be sure to like their page.

We had our designers work their magic with the October kit, Sweater Weather (on sale to the general public October 1st), and the Therm O Web products. Check back every day for a new post about how the team used their adhesives, and make sure you comment on this post, because at the end of the week, we’ll do a drawing to give away the following awesome pack from Therm O Web:

Glitter Dust Spray, Large Zots, Mounting Squares, Super Stik Glue Stick, Tape Runner, Mini Tape Runner (not shown), iCraft Sheets, one of each of our new Glitter Dust Photo Corners, and a pack of our Foam Squares (not shown).

 

Thankful-Giveaway

icraft SheetsSilver-Photo-Corners
Pretty nice package, yes?

Today we’re going to hear from Jody about how she used the products:

I had the opportunity to craft with some various Therm-o-web adhesives as I scrapped the Cocoa Daisy October kit- Sweater Weather.
acloseupdots
It was so great to be able to have several different options as I scrapped this kit because of the different textures and items in it.

adots

I loved using the foam squares for the added dimension they bring to the page. I used them on the wood veneers and added them to flair, for double thickness.

afoamsquares

They work easily with and I cut them down and used them in smaller spots too. I love a versatile product like that.

The tape runners and super tape were slick as well! The super tape was perfect on the wood veneer and even worked well on a piece of felt that I used as a mat on a photo. It can be tricky to find something to stick well and not be messy to work with on these types of textures. But this super tape did the job well on both counts!
asupertape
I would not hesitate to use all of their adhesives in scrapping and crafting. From the Zots to foam squares to tape runner, Therm-o-web made scrapping extra fun and easy for me this month! Love that!
