Deconstruct to Recreate!

At CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) this last July for the Summer Show held in Rosemont, Illinois near Chicago, we sponsored a delightful workshop taught by Candy Rosenberg showing how to deconstruct a mixed media album and recreate it into a home decor card station.  Only 50 lucky students got the chance to take this one at the show, it sold out within minutes.  It was wonderful to meet all of the women and men that attended, we had such a phenomenal time with you!

Visit Candy Rosenberg's blog at www.LivingTheAlteredLife.comand to keep tabs on her teaching schedule using GlueArts products.

The Need to Know on the GlueGlider PRO

Recently, you may have noticed our GlueGlider PRO cartridges come in a variety of colors. So you ask, what is the difference? Glide-ability!

Our new purple PRO+ cartridge refill has been engineered with an enhanced glide-ability mechanism, allowing for a quicker and easier adhesive experience. Don't let this cosmetic change discourage you, all colors of the GlueGlider PRO cartridge refills are designed to fit the same original gun handle.

You can find the new purple PRO+ cartridge at select retail locations as well as Although we no longer manufacture the original pink PRO cartridge, you can still purchase the pink and green cartridge refills at most local retail locations. Click to view a list of some of our online and storefront retailers.

Many times we've seen these crafters use the hot glue gun with little ease and a whole lot of mess. Which GlueArts products would you have recommended they use instead? We can't wait to read your suggestions ;)
