Fabulous Fundamental: Let's Talk Adhesive!

Let's talk adhesive! Over the past few weeks, I have chatted about adhesive to various scrappy friends. What I have realized is not all glue is created equal...and if I look into my scrappy supplies, I have a diverse selection! There is no one glue fits all scenario at my house!

I wanted to share my favorites and what I use them for...

Tombow Mono Liquid Glue: My personal favorite liquid glue. Why? It cleans up easily with water; it does not wrinkle or destroy the paper I am adhering; it works on wood, fabric and paper and it lasts a long time. Fabulous value!


Tsukineko - The Essential Glue: I love the glue itself and the glue pad. This duo is perfect for foiling and glittering detailed images on your projects.

Clearsnap - Glue Gloss: OK I'll admit it - I bought this glue initially because it is just SO darn cute! It has however become a staple in my stash. The sweet mascara like applicator is perfect for adhering light weight ribbon and twine. I keep a tube in my toolbox at all times!

Stix2 Glue Gun Refills or the Glue Glider: This is the work horse of my scrappy escapades. I use this glue 90% of the time on my projects.

Dotto Dots - Repositionable: So I must have commitment issues but this repositionable dotto dots is a must for me. As I work, I like to temporarily tack down my work and this fantastic product does the trick. Dotto dots is a pre-ordered item so let Sandy know if you are interested. For me, there is nothing else!

So there you have it, my faves? And best of all, they can all be found in the store, just my girl, Sandy:-)
