Recently I was contacted by a representative from Elmer’s glue and products. She asked if I would be interested in reviewing several of their crafting products. Well, I already trust Elmer’s products and so I said yes. I received a nice sized box of items to review.
Now for the the exciting part, Elmers is allowing me to have a giveaway for TWO of my followers. Wow, how generous is that.

Contest starts Monday, Feb. 14 and ends Sunday night Feb. 20 – I will pick the 2 winners by Random Generator on Monday morning and winners names will be posted on Monday Feb 21st

2.LEAVE A COMMENT (only 1 per person)please leave a way for me to contact you
3.MUST LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES (Elmer’s will only send packages for this giveaway inside the USA)

Now for the ELMERS CRAFT BOND and X-ACTO products reviews.

Removable double sided scrapbooking tape. I used this for positioning photos on my scrapbook layouts and it worked as it should.
Permanent tape runner and Dot runner I loved both of these runners, I have had trouble in the past with other runners “bunching” up on the surface, I did not have any trouble with these two. I end up using all that was sent to me and then I went out and purchased more refills. I also like their size, just right to take to crops and such.
Glue spots I used up all of these on an altered art book I was making. I sometimes have trouble with products sticking when altering a project. I did not have any trouble with these spots sticking. I also like how they are packaged.

Glue sticks
I used the disappearing purple, repositionable, washable school glue and the extra strength. All worked well but I really liked the extra strength stick. All clean up was easy.

Glue pens
I used the wet/dry, paper and fabric and paper craft glue gel. I liked all of them,( I did not try using the paper and fabric one on any fabric though)

Designer series decorative edge scissors Who doesn’t love decorative edge scissors.
Cutting scissors They cut as they should and are very sharp

X-ACTO craft knife and X-ACTO small swivel craft knife I love, love both of these craft knives. I like that the handle is bigger around and is easier for me to hold onto. They also come with a sturdy blade cap. And absolutely love the hot pink handles.

Elmer’s Painters Opaque Paint Markers
Bright colors and craft colors each in a pack of 5, medium point tip. I tried each pack on different types of surfaces and so far they look great. They can be used on fabric as long as it is set with heat, I did not try using on fabric.

If you are a crafter, cardmaker or scrapbooker Elmer’s products are perfect for most of your needs. Products are archival safe and acid free with easy cleanup. Elmer’s products are reasonably priced.

FYI: Elmer’s will send both winners their package, I do not have the items nor do I know what will be included in package.

I was sent numerous products by Elmer’s to review. My reviews are my own opinions. I was not compensated in any other form
