Do you UN-DU?

Hello friends! Thought I'd share one of my favorite products and one that you should have right in front of you on your craft desk at all times:  UN-DU. I this stuff!

I was introduced to UN-DU over 20 years ago at a Making Memories workshop. We scraped off photos from old photo albums so easily and there was no damage to the photo even if UN-DU dripped on it. Amazing stuff!

I've used UN-DU countless number of times to remove pieces from a card and still be able to salvage the card because the UN-DU just lifts it off. The adhesive stays tacky, too, so you can reuse the same piece again.


Here's an example of the amazing properties of UN-DU. After I finished making this card I thought it was waaaaaay too busy. I was trying to put too many elements on one card. Yikes!


So I pulled out the UN-DU and removed everything from the card and turned it into two cards which made me happy. I was glad that I was able to save the pennant banner, the cake, the cupcakes, and even the sentiment for the new banner. I couldn't have done it without the UN-DU. Magical stuff!

And on that note, I'm off to get another bottle of UN-DU with a 40% off coupon from my LSS.

I'd like to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all moms, anyone who's like a mom, and moms of furbabies, too!

  18. i think you used dimensional adhesives on the images, right? do you think UN-DO would destroy the coloring from Copics? i have a feeling that it might.... love UN-DO, too! have one, but really should use mine more often. fabulous card, Donna! you ROCK, girl!
