Think about it Thursday

Today thinking about adhesive & glue
What brands are your favorites
what do you use most often.
I think I have tried almost all of them
bought an atg gun when that was the craze
found because I sit when I make my cards and my desk
is not that large that really didn't work for me
I do use it for certain things but not that often
got the
Martha Stewart Adhesive roller
didn't like this one
 
saw Lori Whitlock use
that kept getting clogged so that was a NO
 
so the one I found that works for me and I can get the
refills at AC Moore in at 3 pack for $9.99 with a 40% off coupon
Tombow MONO Permanent Adhesive Applicator, 1/3-Inch by 472-Inch (62106)
for 3D projects I like
Scotch and TomBow multi
Scotch (R) Quick-Drying Tacky Glue 6052-BTombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
 
 Due use glue dots under my bows and for buttons
for tiny things
can't beat a Zig glue pen
 
ZIG - Fine Tip Glue Pen - Repositionable
 
 
for layering I use
 
and I know they aren't the cheapest but I love them
so easy to use

for things I want to make sure
that they NEVER come off

for sequins
Ranger Multi Medium, Matte Mini, 1/2 oz.
Hope you day holds together.... ;)

Think about it Thursday

I am not going to lie about it when I am at work my mind wanders
always day dreaming about crafting.
Seems I have lots of questions but don't always have the answers.
Who better to ask that all my bloggy friends....
so today my question is
Do you work standing up or sitting down or a combination?
I have my scrap room set up so when I cut, score or embossing
I am standing but sit when I put my cards together
would love to know what everyone else prefers..
 
Have a Happy Crafty Day!

Trick or Treat

So I challenge myself to use items I had cut, punched,
colored, stamped and embossed last year 
that I didn't use 
feeling very inspired to look at all those leftovers 
in a different way.
I was watching a video by Nichol Magouirk
she was making the cutest Halloween card and said how much
she like to make "Scene Cards"
it was like a giant light bulb went off....
and I realized that out of all the cards I create I like 
my scene cards the best...

 this weekend I did make a stop
at AC Moore they had a 55% off coupon
I had a $10 reward so I treated myself to an 
Ott Light really happy with the way it helps to
make my pictures look better.

Back to work tomorrow wishing I had another day or
two to create.....

Happy Crafting Everyone
