I decided to look through my scrapbook today and noticed that my LO's were falling apart and they are not that old...The embellishments that fell off are heavy i guess like big flowers, metal plates,bigger beads...but i was so upset i worked really hard on it...I used glue dots to adhere them is their something better?
I dont know how to add pics of my Lo's on here but if you go to my gallery it is the family one with my aunt and grandma,orange and brown in color..

I haven't had a problem with the real Glue Dots brand. Not a thing has come apart. I live in a very low humidity region so that may make a difference.

I like the real glue dots better too. I use zots b/c most of the time that is all I can get.

I use Glossy Accents to stick down nearly everything that's not paper-to-paper - no problems so far...

I use Glossy Accents for the really heavy stuff.

Also a fan of the glossy accents, I took a class with Tim Holtz last summer and it is what he recommended for liquid adhesive, not that he isn't partial or anything...but I still haven't had an issue with it

I like multi-medium matte, because it dries clear. it will adhere just about anything forever!

Real glue dots for heavy stuff. The kind on the little sheets.

The stuff on the rolls - well, I've learned to leave it in the stores.

I have never had Zot issues, but I also don't stick anything too heavy down with them. Ever since discovering Glossy Accents, I use that for heavy stuff.

Glad I'm not the only glossy accents lover here. I use it for pretty much everything that's not paper to paper!

For paper to paper it's either zip dry or ATG

Ribbon to paper- zip dry

I like the real glue dots for heavy stuff. Alternatively, I'll use KI Gloo. That stuff holds pretty much anything and dries clear. Glossy Accents also works well, as others have said.

Hi Ashley! Thanks for the love on my avie- that would be my cat Mac. He climbs onto my hair towel EVERY morning.

Yep, due today and NOTHING happening. I fear it's going to be a while longer.

LOL - I love that climbing onto your head is a part of his daily routine. My cat sleeps on my head every night - what is it with cats and heads? LOL
Well I hope it's not too much longer and your little girl comes to meet you soon!
