Day in and Day out I use my ATG gun. This is the second for me. I totally wore out the first. Wheels just gave in and said that is it... no more. Just about the time that Michaels started selling these pretty pink ones and I could use a 40% off coupon! ;0)
But I have started using liquid glues more, and with 3-d projects the double sided tapes.
Glues... I am new at using these liquid glues with my projects, but I have found that for embellishments, flowers and well... things I want to really hold down well, these are great. My first glues are the two on the left, Helmar brand. And I do really like these, but they are very very sticky and thick. I had read about Beacon's 3-n-1 glue. And ran across a bottle at a small scrapbook store, and thought I would try it. And I LOVE it... now I just need to find it somewhere closer to home!
Double sided tapes.... I usually only use these for 3-d projects and heavy things. I believe the red is ProvoCraft? I think that is right, don't have the packaging - sorry but I think that is correct. The white paper looking tape says x-press it - I got it at a craft fair, and I think this may be like ScorePal type of tape. They both work really well... but the red tape does seem to be stronger to me.
So tell me... what do you use? I am always up to try new adhesives, and better adhesives. One that I recently tried and loved, but it was not cheap and very hard to find is Scrap-dots. It is a liquid gel type of glue in a tube and you can work it like liquid pop dots sort of. Really cool...but again hard to find for me. So again... share what you use, I can always use improvements in my sticky situations :0)
For my personal item this week - I step just outside of my craft room, into my bedroom. Sitting on the dresser just by the door to my craft room is three little tins that I found in on an online antique shop. I just adore them...
Yep... Sarah Kay tins! They are "vintage" from the mid 1970's (insert shocked face here) when the heck did the 70's become vintage???? I love these tins, and they make me smile every time I look at them.
Thanks for visiting "ME and MY Space" and letting me share my play area!
