What adhesives do you use? I use the photo squarers for my photos. I've been using the sticks for my paper stuff,but that seems to be getting clumpy and sticky. I've used the Xyron and the Herma glue runners,but the are tearing for me.

Any suggestions?

A bunch of them,,,,,,

ATG primarily, a good healthy dose of Zip Dry Glue,,,,,,glue dots a great deal, though not as often as I used to now that I have Zip Dry,,,

once in a blue moon I use Xyron,,,Modge Podge rarely,,,Diamond Glaze when I'm looking for a particular look,,,,Decoupage glue when I'm sugaring some flowers with glitter,,,

Oh, a whole variety of stuff. Tombow (mono adhesive) for paper mostly and glue dots for bulky items. I still like good ole photo squares too and sometimes use on my pics rather than a tape runner. I'm sort of old fashioned. I have a xryon but have never used it, lol. No time to learn something new!

There's a refillable adhesive at Walmart that I use. I use the repositionable/dotted one. The refills are cheap...like 2.50 for a pack of two. Can't beat it!

I also use Tombo liquid adhesive...great for chipboard.

Glossy accents...clear drying...great for some embellies.

Modge Podge...great for covering chipboard or whatever with paper.

I use Glue Dots here and there, but I've been out of them lately, and haven't missed them a bit.

I HATE gluesticks...they are just too messy. The only one I will stand to use is the embellishment one by Pioneer. It's yellow and red, and in the scrapbook section at Walmart. The lady at the scrapbook store swore by this stuff (it's no longer open, which is why I don't buy it there). It's the only thing I will use under ribbon or fabric trims, and it holds GREAT! I bonded with this stuff while making my wedding invitations (pun intended).

I HATE my Xyron. I never use it. I wish I never would have bought it. Refills are just too expensive, even with coupons, IMO. That's making me thing I should list the thing on CL or ebay.

I think that is all.

I'd love to hear which ATG is the best, though...that may be what I ask Santa for this year.

I mainly use Tombow...love it.

I use my Xyron 500 for smaller stuff and for ribbon.

I use pop dots when I was a more 3-D look.

I have been using tomobow, but it wasn't holding all that well anymore so I broke down and ordered the ATG last night.

I also use glue dots and pop dots quite a bit.
