Favorite! I have several. I love double sidded tape (3M brand only) and I love xyron - I have the "X" and the 900. ZIG pens are my favorite "wet" adhesive.

I've probably tried EVERY tape runner out there and my favorite (for now) is Scrapbook Adhesives EZ Tape Runner. It rolls on the smoothest and doesn't get stuck. Very enjoyable to use!

xyron 500 and 900. I have the cheetah and the X, but I haven't used them.

I really like Glue Dots for ribbon, buttons and other bulky embellishments.

Sorry but I love mine and I can't believe I waited so long to take the plunge. I just used it for my fan flowers and it held beautifully. Don't hate me you will love it when it comes.

Truth?

1. Duck Brand tape runner. So convenient to just pick up run on some glue.

2. I just got the Glue Glider Pro. It's small and goes on easily and the glue is as strong as the ATG's glue.

3. ATG -- the glue tape lasts forever!

It depends on what I'm using it for ... I like my CM tape runner and Glue Glider Pro for photos, Glue Dots for embellishments, and xyron for smaller stuff. I also love my WackyTac sheets for really intricate items and die cuts.

I love Scotch brand photo splits. I also really love the Kokuyo Dot N' Roller adhesive, and Glue Dots . For some things (bigger and bulkier embellishments), I still refer back to my good ol' Tacky Glue.

I love double sided adhesive squares. The are made by Fiskars and a couple other brands (I can't find them in the superstore) They come in a dispenser, and I use them for anything flat (paper or photos)

I never had any luck with them,,,,my photos always fell off,,,,

and they were a joke on highly glittered paper,,,,which I use frequently,,so it might just depend on the kind of paper you use,,,

Probably.

Seasoned scrappers have found that glue stick does not hold. Over time, your pages will fall apart.

Well for starters I have a little Beagle too As for the adhesives I use ALL kinds depending on what I am gluing. I use pop dots or foam for popping, I use glue sticks for paper tearing items, I use permanent sticky dots for most larger paper piecing and I use Glue Dots for smaller piecings. I have learned over the years that not all adhesive works for the same things and I am still learning.

I love my CM tape runner and the 3L Scrapbook Adhesive tape runner! I just bought the Glue Glider Pro and am anxiously awaiting its arrival! I'll also use Zip Dry or the Mono Liquid glue for ribbons, buttons, chipboard, etc. The ZIG glue pen is nice for really small stuff.

I don't care for Tombo w or the Duck brand. They seem to gum up on me.

I don't use the stick glue, because things have fallen off after a short period of time. LO are for long time endurance, so I just would use other more proven products for longevity.

Another scrapper here that would advise NOT using glue sticks...doesn't matter which ones. They will all eventually dry up and your pages will fall apart. And if you live in a humid climate this will happen faster it seems.

I only recommend using glue sticks on items like mulberry paper. Since it tears so easy, things like Glue Dots or foam, etc, just tears away and the item falls off. Glue sticks will soak in and create a firm bond, however, I don't use glue sticks on anything else. I would use a liquid glue, but I HATE waiting for the stuff to dry. I am impatient. Also most glue sticks are not considered safe for scrapbooks from what I read recently. Elmers makes a craft glue stick that is considered safe around photos.

OK so it has a learning curve of about 3-4 minutes After that you are zipping away,,,

and for about 10 minutes you feel like the worlds biggest idiot while you learn how to load the dang thing,,,,,

but once you get it loaded, it's a piece of cake,,,,,I even had to reload it becauase my daughter decided to UNLOAD it,,,,and the second time, zip zip zip,,,,loaded in 10 seconds Made me wonder how on earth I could have been so dense the FIRST time

LOVE LOVE LOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVE MY ATG GUN!!!!!!
