I currently use Scor tape, but would like to know if there are any other adhesives out there that are just as good???

I use both Tombow Mono Permanent adhesive and I just got a Scotch ATG gun. Pretty big but the tape is really permanent! Tombow is great for taking places cause it's nice and small.

I like my ATG, but I hear that scor-tape is really excellent too,,,,,,

ATG is a bit easier for me to find though,,and it's CHEAP,,and it LASTS,,,,so hence I use that.

I use my ATG for everything, but before I had that, I used Tombow.

I use my ATG whenever possible, but will use my Zig pen on small Cricut cuts or my X.

A combination of atg, scor tape, and zip dry depending on what I'm putting together.

Check out "Best Glue Ever". You can adhere your embellies--(wood, metal, plastic, ribbon, paper, foam), draw with it for glitter, fine tip for tiny detail work, dries clear and fast and doesn't wrinkle paper. Just use less than you think you need. (You can even make your own glue dots)

Though not available here, it's now available online at J's, Sear's, Amazon and lots of dedicated scrapbook stores. Ask for it at your LSS-- if you have one.

I need to change up my adhesive. I have been using Tombo mono adhesive for years. It is convenient to use but I have always had trouble with my cards coming apart from time to time.

I didn't know Sears sold craft items. Is this new? Is it in some stores or online only? I have a sears gift card I need to use.

I'm in love with my red ATG - use it for everything. It's so permanent, it's perfect on cards where they need to be handled more.

I have just recently purchased a pink ATG and can't imagine using anything else. The hold is so strong, so make sure it's what you want after putting it down, because I have torn, a few of my papers trying to pull it off. lol!

And save the ATG empty paper roll after you finish the adhesive tape. You can make your own glue spots on it and then roll it back up for storage. I use The Best Glue Ever--check out video demo on Youtube. If you want to make giant dots, or lines instead, you can use the release paper like from address labels or other stickers.
