My UHU experience

A couple of weeks ago I was blog hopping and noticed on one that UHU (adhesives) was offering free samples. I'm always looking for a good glue so I clicked on the link, I have it in my links (Maria Filosa's UHU Project Blog) and emailed them for a sample, forgetting to give them my address. They mailed me back the next day and very graciously agreed to my request and asked for my snail mail. D'oh!! Should have remembered!

About 2 weeks later I received my samples of the UHU Creativ Scrapbookers Pen and the UHU non permanent glue roller. I love the Scrapbookers Glue Pen, it is a very strong glue and doesn't buckle the paper as much as other clear liquid glues do. In small amounts, it doesn't buckle the paper at all. The only thing I have found so far, I've been using it for a week and haven't delved all it's applications yet, is that it doesn't appear to like to adhere flat back gems. I adhered all the gems to the front of the Piano Hinge Book in the previous post with it and 2 of the gems popped off 2 days later.

The UHU Glue Roller is a neat little tool. I don't scrap but in making my cards etc, I have used it to adhere a piece of card to my glass cutting mat so I can cut it without the paper moving all over the place. I like that it dispenses in micro dots as there ARE no strings left when you lift the dispenser off the paper. LOVE that!!

All in all I will be looking into getting more UHU products as I'm happy with the samples I have recieved. Thanks UHU!!!!! LOL

I'm wondering whether they would ship to France?!

I think it would be worth it to try!
