I GOT THIS SIMPLY BECAUSE IT WAS FREE, THROUGH AN OFFER THAT THEY HAD GOING THROUGH HERE (WHICH YOU HAVE TO ADMIT EVERYONE, THEY HAVE SOME GREAT OFFERS RUNNING THROUGH HERE AT TIMES) AND I FOUND THAT I TRULY LIKE THE ADHESIVE BETTER THAN ANY OF THE OTHER BRANDS THAT I HAVE. I FOUND THAT IT GOES ON SMOOTHLY AND WITH NOT ALOT OF LUMPS, SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO MAKE FOUR OR FIVE PASSES USING OTHER ROLLERS, JUST TO GET YOUR PROJECT SECURE. I LIKE THIS STUFF!
I have used this to create my cards for over 7 years. I run a busy web site at www.handmadehawaii.com where I sell my handmade cards aa well as 100's of other Hawaiian Products. Since I have been selling my cards successfully for so many years, you might wish to take this review seriously. Simply stated, I cannot create without this adhesive.
Keeping the Aloha Spirit Alive, I wish you a warm Mahalo...

I was just telling a group of scrapping ladies that I can never find a good adhesive. I then tried the new Sticky Thumb. I have fallen in love. It sticks to the page with no problem and them to my page. It was able to immediately lift it back off the page but is now permanent. It reminds me of the sticky you find in Xyron Sticker Machines. Try it!
After bad experiences with a similiar type of adhesive, I was hesitant to try this one, but I was pleasantly surprised! It rolls wonderfully and is very sticky, and those were my two biggest complaints about other brands. I would definitely recommend this to other scrappers.
I'd recommend this to anyone - it's fantastic. It sticks well, has even coverage and looks good under vellum. It doesn't glob up in the dispenser and there's no release paper streaming from the holder. Great stuff!!
Like some of the other reviewers, I received this as a free gift with another purchase and I'll never go back. I love this adhesive. It goes on smoothly and is very sticky...as advertised!
This was a freebie with a recent purchase, and honestly I wasn't sure what it was until it got here. I imagined it would be like a double-sided tape. It's really not. It's much more malleable than tape, and much thinner than any tape roll you will find. The fact that it dispenses from a roller means your hands never touch it, keeping the adhesive very sticky for your surfaces and preventing frustrating Finger-Tape-Tangle-Syndome. =) The other reviews can tell you how effective and easy it is, I just thought I'd add something for people who were clueless about this like I was.
I got this as a free gift w/ purchase from Scrapbook.com. I have used roller adhesives before and was never very impressed, but I figured it's free so why not? Well, I am so glad I got it. So far it has worked great. It glides on smooth and is very sticky! Just what any scrapbooker needs...
I only gave it 4 stars because I have just started using it and don't know yet about it's longevity.
I will buy more.

Sticky Thumb works the best of any tape dispenser I've tried. No tangling, no strings, no gunk stuck to the dispenser. My only wish is that it held more tape. I went through it in no time. Or perhaps because it was so easy to use, I used it more than I would have normally used double sided adhesive. It was perfect to take to a class. Compact and easy to keep on a crowded table. I am reordering.
I'm usually a creature of habit with my adhesives. I rarely try anything new but I thought I'd give this a try. It's really sticky but it places on the paper really well. In my experience, I've found that an inexpensive adhesive gives you the results you pay for. This is a delightful exception. I will be ordering it again!
This is only the second double sided tape roller that I have used.
It arrived relatively quickly along with the other items that I ordered.
Cuts somewhat easily.
Very sticky and permanent.
The only thing that I did not like was that the tape sticks a little to the cap.
I have issues with some roller adhesive. So far, I've haven't had any issue with this one. It's sticky and rolls easily. I don't yet know the long term stickness or if it will hold heavier objects, but did the job for my lo.

I have used 7-10 different varieties of double sided adhesive. The roller on Sticky Thumb was elongated instead of round so when you ran the roller along the paper it was like riding a bike with a wobbly wheel. Maybe mine was defective. Other than that Sticky Thumb worked rather well. Many of the double sided adhesives are difficult to use because the glue gets caught up around the wheel. This one did not do that. I will try another one to test the roller.
The 'sticky stuff' needs more strength, but it's okay for sticking photos to cardstock. The applicator doesnt roll well, maybe because I'm so 'green' at this project.
It's the first time I've made a scrapbook.
