Adhesive-What Kind Should I Use?

What adhesive should I use?

Adhesive, which one is right for me?

This can be a sticky question especially when there are several adhesives to choose from.

I get asked this question quite often and I have several answers to help with this question.

The table below has been a great tool, for me, when trying to figure out which adhesive will work best for my particular project.

This is a re-creation of the Adhesive Suggest Use Table found in the 2017-18 Annual catalog (the one in the catalog is much prettier) …if you don’t have a current catalog and would like me to send you one, please email me  and I will drop one in the mail for you.

Suggested Uses for Stampin’ Up! Adhesive

Adhesive Use table shared by Dawn Thomas. For details click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #adhesive

In addition to the table above, here are a couple videos from Stampin’ Up! that will give you some more tips and tricks for using the Fast Fuse Adhesive (I love Fast Fuse and reach for it consistently when I am crafting-I love how it holds strong without any mess) and the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Both of these are on my must have list of products.

Spooky Cat Swaps equal Spooky Fun

Spooky Cat Stamp Set include images of tattooed cats, witches’ hats, growling owls, bubbly potions, and a rat—who needs “the Scottish play” when you can have this! And with the totally adorbs Cat Punch you can quickly punch out a cat silhouette for Halloween or for any cat lover projects.

I recently participated in a couple different swaps with other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators (one of my favorite things about being a demonstrator) and I wanted to share some of the FABULOUS cards that I received with you.

And the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper includes “spooky” Halloween images as well as versatile images that could be used for all sorts of autumn projects.
