UHU Sample Product of the Month

This month UHU offered a sample of their colored UHU stic glue stick to bloggers to test out and give their honest opinions. I was lucky enough to receive a sample to try. They were also generous and included a cute little spiral notebook, papers and embellishments. First off, the glue stick is a generous 0.74 ounces. To give you an idea of how much is in this container the actual glue measured about 2" in length and 1" in diameter. Another great attribute is that it has a disappearing purple tint to it, allowing the user to see just where they have applied it. The glue was easy to apply and went on smoothly, however the one issue I had was that it has a tendency to dry quickly when trying to cover large areas (such as a 3" x 4" area). Of course a quick drying time was also advantageous since there was no waiting time between applications.




Doesn't it just make you wish spring was here?

And Yet More of Auntie Amy's Samples

Auntie Amy's Samples continued! Yes I made a lot of cards....
