Hi Everyone. 

Not gonna lie - It is a little cold and miserable out there today, but the sun is shining inside Paper Flourish!

This week we have had a big refill of all your favourite adhesives, and on top of that - we've taken 10% off all adhesives for the week, both in store and online. It's not the most exciting part of what us crafters do, but lets face it - without the boring things like glue and tape, there would be no gorgeous creations!  Discount always takes the pain away! :)
We still have a few spots left in our popular lessons for the rest of the month, and we highly recommend a second look if you missed out on your favourites due to high bookings at the beginning of the month. There have been some cancellations so you never know unless you look...

As always, we thank you all so much for supporting our little store, and we look forward to seeing you either instore or online really soon!

SPECIAL In store
10% off Adhesives

YAY!!!  We all need adhesives, and when they are on sale, one should stock up!
We have a huge range of adhesives available on shelf.  A big variety of all different kinds too, which is wonderful.  We are spoilt for choice!

A quick rundown for you.....

There area few main types of adhesives- meaning you have choice for what is best to use for different projects and adhering different surfaces.
Most know their favourites, but if you don't, ask us in-store and we can give you some advice!

Tapes and Tape Runners, ATG gun, double sided, dot runners, repositionable, red line tapes, Foam goes on...and on!
All of these adhesives are dry, which means it won't make your paper warp, it is usually a nice strong bond....though not all tapes ARE strong (but sometimes that just means they are repositionable)  Look for one that is strong, with a long lasting bond.  
BEST FOR- paper & cardstock

Mandii's favourite-X-Press It
Janine's favourite-X-Press It Double Sided Tape/ Foam tape
Lydell's Favourite-  Scotch ATG Gun

These are like the name suggests....wet!  They are usually very strong, and difficult to undo once glued....(which is usually great!) They can have a tendency to warp or wrinkle paper, so you choose what is most suitable for the surfaces you are gluing
BEST FOR- Strong bonds, flowers, metal embellishments, chipboard, heavy paper, card or chipboard, wood.

Mandii's favourite- Scotch Tacky Glue
Janine's favourite- Helmar 450 
Lydell's favourite-  Scotch ATG Gun

These are in pen form, sometimes the 'de-press to release' type, sometimes ball point, sometimes super fine-tip nozzle.  There are great for fine detail gluing and adhering things like diecut words.  They are filled with wet adhesive
BEST FOR- Fine detail gluing, small surfaces, quick and easy gluing

Mandii's favourite- X-Press It 2 in 1 Pen and Brush
Janine's favourite- Needle-tip applicator (with liquid PVA style glue)
Lydell's favourite- ZIG Two-way glue pen

These types have super strong bonds, and are glossy, meaning they make awesome glossy finishes when used as a sealant or finish, on top of surfaces, as well as being good for adhering things down really well.
BEST FOR- Strong bonds, metal embellishments, fine detail gluing, small flowers, beads
We have a couple of versions in store but our favourite one is the NUVO Crystal Glaze.  It clogs less, does not yellow and has a nice consistency for self leveling when using it to gloss your embellishments.
Here is a run down on using Diecut'n Bond Tape.  A HUGE timesaver for die cuts!!!
