ATG here, too.

Scotch Quick Dry or Glossy Accents for bulky items like flowers and bows.

I like Zig 2 in 1 glue the best but do have an ATG.
Yes there are differences in the guns I think different guns take different sizes of tape( the width of the tape roll). I have the yellow gun but am out of tape right now.
But I like the Zig glue because I do alot of small things like gluing eyes on animals or centers on flowers. Plus it works well for making small glitter dots or lines of glitter. Zig comes in different sizes and I usually get the chisel tip for my purposes.

Yes, you do.





(Seriously, after I got mine I kicked myself for waiting so long. Use a coupon at M's or J's and they're not that bad.)

i use my trusty old glue stick.....the fat one made by scotch. i love it. i got an atg gun for christmas but i can't use it. then i found out that they are tricky one for lefties. i always use old magazine pages to glue on so that i won't make a mess when i go to the edges of the image.

I use my ATG gun for 95% of my work. I use glue dots for the small items like flowers and circles, as the ATG gun can be tricky to use on a small circle. I sometimes use glossy accents to tack down a loose corner. If I forget how to refill the ATG, I look at a youtube video.

I used to use this but later discovered that the bond is not permanent and the pieces of the card will come apart

I use Scotch Quick Dry (wet glue, dries clear), Glossy Accents, foam adhesive for dimension.

I use my ATG to bond paper to paper and use Scotch Quick Dry or Zip Dry to adhere buttons, bows or flowers.

I use Scotch double-sided scrapbooking tape b/c it is re-positionable (a must for me). I also use glue dots for things like chipboard accents and designs and buttons. I also use my Xyron sticker-maker quite often. Things that I used to use Mod Podge for are now simply made into a sticker.

I use the scotch double sided tape too,I have better luck with it.I purchased a small pink tape gun but I keep running out of tape.I think I will get a larger tape gun later.

I have an ATG and I like it, but I don't love it. I think I may need to use it more to get the hang of it. I love Scotch Scrapbookers Glue for paper to paper, it dries without leaving those annoying bubbles that regular Elmers does and it has a large spongy applicator side and a very tiny tip on the other end. I also really enjoy Glue Dots.

I think I have to go buy an ATG gun. Sounds like many people have them. I use Dots, but I like the ease of using tape runners, just haven't found one that lasts before a couple of refills.
