Stampin' 101: Adhesives

'Stampin' 101'   *   Adhesives

Aren't all adhesives basically the same?  

Stampin' Up! offers such a wide variety of excellent adhesives for your card making, scrapbooking, and paper crafting projects, I've decided to share this discussion to clear up some of the murky waters of "Adhesives" for you.

Ever wonder what adhesive is the "right" one for the job?  Today's tip is all  about that, highlighting each of the adhesives Stampin' Up! has available and their best uses .....

I adore this glue!  It's one of my primary adhesives here in the studio, and is a part of my new-visitors supplies kit.  A  crafter's dream glue!  Multipurpose Liquid A little smear does so much more than you would expect, and holds card layers together beautifully.  It also adheres glitter and other embellishments.  Strong bond; dries clear.  Has fine tip for details, broad tip for large areas.  Acid free.
