Way back then (1970's) there were very few cool stamps and all we had for glue was Elmers or that awful honey colored stuff in the clear bottle - oh yes and rubber cement. Fast forward to the present and the sky is the limit in art and materials. However, abundance isn't always a good thing - if you are a card maker or a scrapper you may have run into the same problem I did: finding a glue that really works for more than one type of application. Now, I'm not trying to sound like a commercial I really was searching for a glue that would work on multiple surfaces. I had a whole drawer full of glue, tapes and sticks, and needed it for all the different thing I used. The mainstay was my expensive ATG Gun. Now to shorten this up, when I applied for the Design Team position I thought I really better purchase some of the ScraPerfect product line. I want to make sure this is exactly what I want and that it will help my readers in their crafty adventures. Within a few day, the glue arrived and I began to put it through it's paces. In every instance, it worked without a hitch.
With this one 2oz bottle I have made over 165 cards, and I have 1/4 left! I make cards for personal correspondence, ministry work and I make them to sell, so I make a LOT of cards! On the average, I used one ATG tape roll for every 20 cards so for 165 ($2.40 a roll) cards that would have worked out to about $19.80 in ATG tape compare to the 3/4 of the bottle of Best Glue ever which works out to cost $7.50 (7.50 for the glue + 2.50 shipping =$10.00-3/4 = 7.50) I did not need to use score tape or my hot glue gun. I can with all honesty say this is the Best Glue (Ever) that I have used in 41 years of serious paper crafting (1976-2017).
So I eliminated
In exchange for this
I have used this on every surface in my card making repertoire
Fabric and Metallic Trims
Paper 3D Embellishments
This won't replace my foam dimensional tape - I don't need it too!
Here is a card I've made to demonstrate how versatile this glue is:
Metallics, glitters, embellishments, heavy papers, thin papers.
the card has no wrinkling, warping or buckling.
