Scor-tape and rubber cement here, too. I have the ATG, but was intimidated by it and never took the time to make friends with it.

I used to use the Tombow but found that my cards were falling apart after a little bit. Now I use an ATG. You can pick up the gun at Michael's with a coupon and I buy my tape here. I buy a dozen at a time at $1.52 each. I use the Scor-Tape/Sookwang only when I'm making something like a favor or an envelope. It's basically the same thing as the red tape, only better because you can tear it.

It depends on which gun you have:

The pink one is called Advanced Tape Glider.
The red ATG (and the yellow one which uses wider adhesive) is the Adhesive Transfer Gun.

Although they look the same, they are built differently. The pink one is the "crafter's" version of the red one, which is why the pink one is cheaper. The red ATG is made for industrial use. The gears in the red gun are built differently, to withstand gumming up from the adhesive.

Default double sided tape

I have Martha Stewarts board also and love it because it has shorter intervals than my origional Scorepal had but they gave me an offer I couldn't refuse and I now have the new Scorpal with 1/4 in increments. I think Stampin Up's looks good also.

I have used and own ALL that are listed and then some. My go to is Zip Dry glue. Most people have trouble with it getting clogged. I don't have that problem, I keep inverted and a cap on it when I don't have it in my hand using it. Have never had ANYTHING come apart with it. Second favorite adhesive is ScorTape and then ATG. With Zip Dry if you get it somewhere it doesn't belong let it dry and it rubs off. Also, you get extra time to move it around if it's not straight. Good luck finding the one that works best for you.

I have never gotten friendly with my ATG either. My grandaughter uses rubber cement all the time and I have it but don't use it much. That Sook Wang is great.

Same here, and I live where the humidity is often in the single digits, so if they would dry out, they would dry out here!

I LOVE my ATG gun. It took a little getting used to, but it's well worth it. I use lots of tape because I'm so fearful of sending something that may come apart. For 3D item's it's the redline tape (a must) and for buttons and embellies it's either glue dots or Glossy Accents. I stock up on the Glossy Accents because it's a wonderful wet glue that dries super fast and it's ideal for me with paper piecing.

No matter what I think that it's generally whatever your preference. You just have to find your niche.

Besides the Scotch double sided, I also use Scotch dot roller. I have found that if I need to get layers apart due to mis-positioning or forgetting to do something, I nearly, or often do, the the card stock before they come apart. I'd say that means it sticks pretty well.

I had the same problem and also some of the tape soaked thru my paper and left dark marks! I was not happy at all, lol. Our local SS sells some pva glue that I really like and once it sets, there is no getting it apart. the only problem I have found with it is with the shiny silver cardstock. it seems to suck it down and you can see right where it is. other than that, I love it and a small bottle lasts a long time.

I remember thinking, well, if they make permanent glue for glue dots surely they make it for tape too. Is Scotch and Scor-Tape permanent?.
Your not naive. You are learning. There is no naive in card making.

If your tape is acid free then whatever tape or glue you use your items will be family heirlooms.

You can make your own glue dots. Most of us over here use Aleene's Tack It Over and Over to make our glue dots. Google "Make your own glue dots" for some excellent tutorials.

Scotch & Scor-Tape are permanent. Scor-Tape is so permanent your house won't move, lol. Scotch always has excellent tape products.

I have learned something new too. I didn't know that. I thought the Pink ATG was an Adhesive Transfer Gun too.

Thumbs up Double-sided sticky tape

I use Stampin' Up double-sided sticky tape for projects that I want to stay together. It works great & there are equivalents in the stamping stores. Just ask for double-sided sticky tape. I AM however, interested in learning new techniques & tools. Will come back here often to check.

this is off sticky tape and maybe its not. What is the best way to apply glitter and if you use a glue what kind do you find best and how do you apply it.

Tombow Multi or Diamond Glaze for large areas and a glue pen for tiny areas. I love the look of glitter, but not the mess, so I usually use glitter glue.

I'm a pretty big fan of Stickles too. But not for large areas.

I am one of those glitter people, lol. You know the girls who have to glitter everything.

I like my Xyron for large areas.

I also use double sided tape. Just lay down the tape, remove the sticky strip, add your glitter. A tip don't remove all your sticky strips at once if your doing strips of different color glitters. Do it one at a time.

I also love glue pens for small areas of glitter. I also just use simple Elmer's school glue or Aleene's Tacky glue for glitter.

I make my own glitter glue. I have a whole bunch of different recipes. You can Goggle glitter glue recipes. I make my own beauty supplies so I buy a lot of different bottles. I use some of those bottles to be my "Stickles" bottles. I also paint with my glitter glue. I like painting with glitter glue because I can control the coverage. You can also use a brayer for glitter glue too.

I use Score tape and never had a problem with stuff coming apart. I love that I can tear it and not have to use scissors like I did when I used the red line tape. I have an ATG gun and like it ok (the tape that it) but the size is rather large for my small hand and I find it tiring on my hand. I use it for large pieces of paper, but for smaller work, I use the score tape. I have flexibility issues and even switched from Cuttlebug to Vagabond so as not to put stress on my hand.

I use scoretape too . Am considering switching to Vagabond also for the same reason. My hands, both of them are wearing out. How do you like the Vagabond?
