I'm still figuring out what brand of adhesive is best. I'm old school and I've been using glue sticks and sometimes they just don't get the job done ...
I mostly make cards and now venturing out to scrapbooking.

Do you use glue? or purely tape?
Glue dots?
Where can you get them cheap?

Thanks for the advice!

I used to use glue sticks until I started looking at some of my odler pages and realized I have to re-glue some of them! I purchased a Scotch Brand ATG gun from Hobby Lobby (using a coupon of course) and I LOVE it so far!!! I use it for most of my projects, but for the tiny stuff I use the Zig Glue sticks! I really like those!

The ATG gun is that big pink gun that I see people use on demos right? I'm so tempted to get it ... does a roll of adhesive last? I'm so jealous of you guys there's no Hobby Lobby in Canada

ATG is awesome. I also use glue dots for embellishments and the zig glue pen for thin die cuts.

I use a ton of different ones, but for general LO construction I use scotch double sided permanent tape-acid free, photo safe and super strong-unorthodox I know but it works great!

Liquid glue I use glossy accents, tacky glue and a new find, Tombow mono glue (it dries sticky!!) also use quite a lot of hot glue for flowers

I use almost every different kind of adhesive for different things (as mentioned above) except for glue sticks!

M's with a coupon is my best bet.

I use:
Tombo mono-adhesive for paper and pictures. I found a place online where I can buy it in bulk cheaply.
Glue dots for bulky embellishments. I get them on sale at any big box store, or if I run too low to wait for a sale, I use a coupon.
KI Gloo for clear or heavy embellishments. I buy it here at sb.com or at my LSS.

ATG with Scotch brand acid free adhesive for most things, then sometimes I just need a little glue dot for other things like a corner I missed or a gem, and also a Zig Glue Pen with the marker tip - I like that for thin lines like for ribbon - also puffy glue dots, those come in different sizes and in circles as well as square for when I want to glue and add dimension. Different tools for the job.

Where in Canada are you? I can PM you with different places for deals on the ATG. Or, if you have a bigger wishlist, its worth it to do a big order from here. Shipping is about $30 to start, but I find the prices are so good that you still save some money.
