Hey everyone - its something that we have all struggled with over the years if we have been scraping a long time. I know I have used plenty that have failed.
Tell me what kinds of adhesives you use and why you like them
Also tell me what special adhesives you use for things like Vellum, metal, acrylics, and wood
Good discussion topic as I'm going to need suggestions soon.
I currently use American Crafts This to That dot rollers and I love them. I use them for everything except heavier items like metal where I would use Glossy Accents simply because I don't have tons of different adhesives.
AC have stopped making the This to That adhesive and we now have Sticky Thumb, but they don't do a dot roller! I like the dot rollers because they fit in my hand. There's no way I could use one of those massive ATG guns!
I've tried Herma, but I can never fit the refills properly! A while ago, I ordered a batch of roller adhesives from Amazon - can't remember the brand - as they were cheap and I don't really like them. They are strip adhesive rather than dots.
I think I'm down to my last pack of refills for my AC roller...
What to do, what to do?
Thanks for adding the thread Susan! So ladies, I have just finished purchasing most of the papers, materials and diecuts for my daughter's 1st Disney/xmas trip album. I am down now to just titles and embellishments! Anyway, I miss spoke earlier...I actually have 55 pages total (27 layouts) and I am trying to plan how much adhesive or glue to purchase. I would love to save and buy in bulk up front.
When I completed my son's 1st trip in 2013, I used photo safe glue sticks. But over time, some things have not held well. I would like to try something different that is strong and cost effective (I can get a lot of use out of it for the money and stretch it further).
Any tips? Any advice is appreciated! :)
I use the Herma repositionable dots. I've been using them for years and find they work well and things don't fall off my pages. I tried an AC glue stick a couple of months ago when I ran out of Herma and didn't like it at all. Things did fall off my pages!!
I also have glue dots and double sided tape on hand
For those that use the ATG gun, is it not heavy and clunky? Or is that just how it looks to me? I'm intrigued as they are so popular, but they just look so cumbersome! How forgiving are they if you stick something in the wrong place or it's not straight and you need to lift it up?
