Does anyone have any preferences in glues and adhesives that work best over time? I recently got back an album I made for my mother just a couple of years ago and the pages and pictures were all falling out. I used a tape runner don't know which brand. Makes me rethink anything I make for long term. Help!

This. You'll never regret it,,,,,use a coupon at M's and the gun will cost 20-24 bucks,,,refills are 10 bucks for 2 and each roll is 108 feet,,,,,you can use a coupon for them too to bring the price down,,,,,,,

it's the best and ultimately, it's the cheapest.

I just got my pink ATG. I'm going home today and I can't wait to use it! I also have a bunch of other goodies sitting on my kitchen counter in brand new packages waiting to be put to use.

I use dots for my buttons and kaisercraft or sobo craft glue for my heavy embellishments. With clear items I use zip dry or spray vellum adhesive. Then when mounting my pages to chipboard for chipboard albums I use a glue stick (the lime greem one, not sure of the name). I just have to make sure it doesn't dry befre I put the page on or it won't stick. So far i've had nothing but success from these. I also use glue glider and as far as adhesive I've never had anything come unglued with it but I'm switching to ATG see which I like better and which is easier to use.

Tombow Mono works the best for me and you can get a lot of use out of this little bottle because it doesn't take much to adhere. It is permanent adhesive. One end is a fine tip and the other is a broad applicator.

I got this for Christmas. I love it! I don't know how it will hold up over time but so far it seems to be holding everything well.

I'm with Holly & Cara... ATG rocks. I do still use Zots for buttons and a tape for ribbon but for pretty much everything else it's the ATG

Thanks too for the advise. I use zots as I couldnt stand the glue stick liquid. I have one of the glue strip things that looks like white out but not overly impressed with that either. I saw the pink atg at M's the other day and was curious if really works- Thanks again.

Thanks, I have the coupon and gift card will have to try them out. Its a waste of good scrapbooking if it doesn't stay together, huh?

Worth every cent. I couldn't scrap without it now. And it even came in handy when I was wrapping Christmas presents and I ran out of tape!

I use a Ad tech permanent bond glue runner and then for loose glitter and rhinestones things of that nature I use ZIG pen. I'm really wanting to get an ATG runner, heard nothing but good things about it
