Glue Giveaway!

August 28, 2009 5 comments
Every scrapbooker, cardmaker, and crafter knows that you can never have enough glue. With that in mind, unKit is having a big glue giveaway!

Tombow USA has graciously agreed to donate complete set of the Tombow Craft Collection product line which would include the following: MONO Permanent Adhesive, MONO Removable Adhesive, MONO Adhesive Vellum, MONO Adhesive Dots, MONO Multi liquid glue, Glue Pen and a dual brush pen set. And, a mono White gel pen. This prize pack is worth over $50. TomBow and unKit decided that it was such a cool giveaway that one set was not enough. So we have a complete set for 2 lucky winners. Twice as nice!

Our Adhesive giveaway will be during our unKit Live! Broadcast on Monday evening 9:30pm EST(6:30pm Pacific). We will have a random drawing from our viewers during our “Glue Story Part Deaux” broadcast.

unKit Live is a weekly internet live streaming show with interactive viewer chat. Sudie Alexander hosts with information about hot trending crafting and scrapbooking topics. During the live show, viewers are able to chat with Sudie and fellow craft enthusiasts for a fun time.

So grab your coffee and bunny slippers. Sit back and relax while chatting with other crafters while watching the show. We are talking crafting adhesive for mixed media projects. It should be fun.

This is in the store at Scrapbook…

A much anticipated CHA new release. This color from Tattered Angels is sure to be a sell out. It adds such a gorgeous finishing touch to any project. If you love Glimmer Mist, this is a must-have color.

Another fun class from the Bo Bunny folks.

We love the ease of the Bo Bunny classes. This project when finished is sure to please any level crafter.

BIG Broadcast and Chat Tonight

August 24, 2009 Leave a comment

Here are some tips and troubleshooting advise from Ustream to make you streaming experience more enjoyable.

Why do I get error messages when I try to enter a chat room or start broadcasting?
Potential Causes

■Firewall Issues: It may be possible that you are behind a firewall that has blocked off the necessary ports that allow Ustream to connect.
■Flash: It may be possible that you do not have the most updated version of Flash or your Flash has been corrupted
Troubleshooting

■Open Firewalls: You want to check whether the standard ports for video streaming and chat are blocked. They are port number 1935 for video streaming and port number 6667 for IRC chat. Here is information on how to open the ports:
■http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308127 (PC)
■http://homepage.mac.com/car1son/static_port_fwd_firewall.html (Mac)
■Update Flash: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

Why is my broadcast/stream choppy?
Potential Causes

■Insufficient Internet bandwidth: It is possible that the upload speed of your Internet connection is too slow.
■Check your internet connection at http://www.speedtest.net
■We recommend an upload speed minimum of 320 Kbps. 400 Kbps is preferred.
■Insufficient CPU: Ensure additional programs are not running in the background or accessing the Internet (ie Itunes, Skype, Napster, etc). Your stream can become choppy if your CPU usage is so high that it causes your computer to slow down. This can affect both the broadcaster stream quality and viewer stream quality.
Troubleshooting

■Buffering: You can tell your users to increase the buffering settings on the broadcast. Users can adjust the buffering in the Menu button of the video player.
■Close all other programs: By closing other programs running on your computer (Itunes, Skype, AIM), you will free up CPU and help your computer run faster

Wonderful World of All That Is Sticky

August 23, 2009 Leave a comment

 Industry sources are reporting that scrapbooking manufacturer Kokuyo has made a corporate decision to discontinue their adhesive line. 

This information is burning up the crafting message boards like wildfire.   Hot topics include not only where there are available refills to purchase and hoard, but also what opinions do people have about a sticky alternative.

From the forum chatter, it seems that the dot n’ roller is causing the most anxiety in the hard core scrapbookers.

For this reason, on Monday night’s unKit Live! weekly broadcast we will be reviewing different dotty adhesives.   So if this is a topic that you are interested in, be sure to join us.   The live interactive chat should be lively.   It is always interesting to hear what the crafters on the front line have to say about the latest scrapbooking topics.

Adhesive preferences can be a sticky topic, but we at unKit plan on getting to the bottom of it.

We have listed below a variety of adhesives that make tickle your fancy.  

Scrapbook(dot) com does have the Kokuyo refills in stock.  The bargain multi-packs are in stock as of this post and are very economical. 

To purchase, simply click the image below and add to your shopping cart.
