CHA Paper Arts Continues

 Checking out booths at CHA and having fun exploring. Sitting down and updating helps rest these weary bones and makes this blogging more fun. I am just having fun gathering ideas and enjoying meeting people and I hope giving my friends a glimpse into the craft worl new things. Some finds are very cool.
I was just chatting on Get It Scrapped the other day about adhesives and items falling off pages. I often go through albums with a small bottle of glossy accents by my side and use that to attach heavier items. I know some of you run for the hot glue gun.
Today at Tombow I found out about a cool new adhesive. EXTREME is a runner with a very strong adhesive. Same length on the roll as regular adhesive and not a lot more than regular adhesives cost so not a replacement for regular tape runners but quite possible a substitute for the strong liquid adhesive or hot glue gun on a page.  An adhesive one does not have to worry about where it's moving on the page or will I or the kids get burned during crafting is a winner. One trick, you need to make a check mark move to stop the adhesive from continuing off the runner. Their designers made the X in Extreme in a fashion that reminds you of that trip. Clever messaging in a design. Tombow still carries all their usual good products. I do love those markers!
This round I dropped by Northwoods Rubber Stamp, Inc. I'm not much of a card maker and am not sure their stamps would work on my scrap pages but I appreciate their strong traditional designs and a delightful sense of humor in some of their stamps. I liked their version of the witch on broomstick running into a tree. Cute!
