My Love Affair..... with Thickers.....



Thickers.... just saying the word makes me happy! I have used, and collected, many packs over the past few years. I love the many colors they come in and the different fonts, and the variety of materials they are made out of. Some have never let me down-- the puffy, the felt, the glitter, the glitter chipboard, the majority of the foam.... But, as with all love affairs, there are times when one party in the relationship can let the other down. I must admit that I have had issues with some of the foam, and the vinyl. OH the mess the vinyl ones have made... the glue leaving a sticky residue on my page... the letters falling off of the layouts.... But I still love the vinyl... so I just added adhesive or used my stapler to hold them on where they were supposed to be. Same with the foam. Some of the foam letters stay put wonderfully. But some of the foam have a tendency to stray... off the page. But I still LOVE Thickers.... as in any relationship, I just choose to look over the faults of the Thickers, choosing to see and focus on the good qualities! :D What issues have you had with Thickers?? Do you have a love affair with them as well?

I can't even go there. If you knew how many unused Thickers I have, you would RUN to my house when I'm not home and steal them.......we all know how easy that is!
