Tim’s Creative Chemistry 101 and Great New Find

Hello. Happy Friday to you all.

I wanted to pop in with some good news.

Due to the great excitement around Tim’s class, we will be moving open registration up to tomorrow – Saturday the 25th. If you were already an Online Card Classes newsletter subscriber, you should have received a few emails with links to a discounted class price for pre-registration. If you got one of these, be sure to do it right away! When it opens for registration tomorrow, the class with be the normal fee of $35. And no worries, everyone. The class will not fill – so if you can’t sign up right away, you can always sign up next week, next month, next anything. It will be fun! Just go HERE to sign up starting tomorrow.

There is a new product that I wanted to share with you. I love it!

I bet a lot of you out there are as addicted to foam dots as I am. They are a great way to add dimension and interest without a lot of bulk for mailing. And if you are like me, sometimes you find it hard to cut  white foam dots small enough so that the white doesn’t show around the sides of a small piece.

Well, this product solves that. They are Kool Tak Clear Foam Dots and Foam Tape. That’s right – no more seeing the white from the sides. Yay! I really like these. They are super strong and aren’t too bulky, which is nice. (But if you want thicker, you can layer two.) You can cut the pieces in half – the adhesive is so strong you don’t need to use much.


I will still be using my favorite white foam adhesive (EK Success 1/16″ and American Crafts 1/8″) for most of my crafting. But for small pieces or special cards, I will be using this new clear. You can find the Clear Foam Dots HERE and the Clear Foam Tape HERE.

    The clear foam dots sounds intriguing. I would love to see them in real life to get my head around “clear foam”. I have used the clear 3D Glue Dots but they are fairly large and not good for small pieces.

    The decreased height (1/32″ vs 1/16 or higher) compared to other companies is certainly an advantage, as well as the fact that they are clear.
