I saw this at HL just last week. There's no coupon this week, but I'm sure there will be one next week:) Besides the flocking stuff, they also had the little set of the glitters and the bigger sized glitters:)
Where do you get the cheaper stuff? Also what's it called?
The stuff that I got for cheaper was fun flock. It has been the main flocking powder around for a while. I got mine at a local stamp store. Not sure where else you could get it. I know CTMH sells it in white and only white, but you pay like a dollar and a half more for it (for an item that is 2.50 here at my store to then be 4 bucks from them ...that is a bit much).
I think the bottles of fun flock might be slightly smaller than doodblebugs. However, this isn't stuff I see myself using up fast. I used a bunch of it and you can't tell. It is really similar to embossing powder in that respect. I don't need a large bottle.
However, I didn't see the little variety packs. Those might be worth it... Especially with a coupon.

I got some bottles of flock a week or so ago and it's by Stampendous. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I hope I can figure it out. I got blue, green and yellow. What adhesive do you guys use?

I haven't gotten any yet, but it does look like fun. I'm afraid if I start, I won't stop! I have bought some sheets of flocking, but not the loose stuff. The Doodlebug colors look like such yummy fun!
As for adhesives, I know 7 Gypsies has some rubons out right now in different designs that are made to add flocking, foil or glitter. WERMK also has a kit out with adhesive rubons and sheets of flocking and foil and glitter. You can also use glue pens to hand draw flourishes, letters, etc... and add it that way. I'm sure a tape runner would work well for borders... hmmm... I might have to get some of this now.
It works with most liquid adhesives. I love it with ZIG two way glue pens (sticks really well to that and you can get a thicker area covered). With the new Tombo glue pens it sticks to those well too and you get fine detail wich is sweet! It is so fine you can literally write in your normal handwriting like you are using a pen! However, if you really want to feel the fuzzy something that fine might not be so ideal.
Um, does anyone else see the irony in Pooka posting right before the boxes went MIA? Those of us on the Night Owl CG all know that Pooka has a kitten we call EKOD (Evil Kitten of Doom). Ekod is blamed for all missing items because he steals stuff to play with. NIce little rolly polly bottles of flocking powder going missing? I am thinking Ekod is in trouble...
BTW...I used some flocking powder with a xyron yesterday. My newest layout in my gallery has a strawberry QuicKutz die with the stem flocked in green (sorry, not Doodlebug brand, but works the same). I just ran the die through the xyron so that the front got the sticky, pulled the plastic off, and added flocking powder to it. Works well!
