    With so many different choices of adhesive to hold your diecuts, pictures, ect, which one do you use?? Glue sticks? Glue pens? Double sided tape?

    I find myself going between glue sticks and glue pens...I really love the pens more though because they are smaller!

    What do you use?

    I use hermifix for everything large...pictures, matting, large die cuts, borders, etc. I use glue dots for buttons, charms, things that are heavy. I use glue pen - the Zig Squeeze and Roll is my current fav...for small punches, dies, etc. Then last but not least...I use my X - xyron for small things that are too intricate or numerous to glue with the pen. I have also recently discovered the vellum tape, which I've used a few times and absolutely love...now I don't always have to hide my adhesive under the vellum or use eyelets and/or brads. :)

    CM tape runner for almost everything. There is something else I have used for Vellum... but can't remember right now.

    I use all kinds of adhesives except glue sticks (I've found that they don't work well for me). Squares/tape runners for most things, glue pens quite often, and my Xyron 150 for anything small. I'll tell ya, that 150 is a *beautiful* thing when you're making paper piecings with intricate parts! :D

    I use tape runner for pictures, xyron500 and 150 for large and small die cuts , glue sticks for small strips and punch art, pop dots for stickers on cardstock , glue dots for buttons. Hope to add the zig glue pen to my supply list for letters.

    After several types of glue sticks & tape runners at the beginning that didn't hold up even a year.... I use:

    -Hermie tabs for most things
    -Xyron sometimes
    -a liquid glue pen for real small things that just need a dab. It holds amazingly well.
    -popdots

    I use glue sticks. But as someone else said, they don't necessarily stick very well. I should look into something else.

    I use a lot of things depending on the application-

    I LOVE CM tape runner and go through tons of it-
    I just got Hermafix glue dots and love those too!
    I Zig 2-way, great for shaker boxes
    I LOVE pop dots too! Great on Charms!
    I have Fiskars Clear mounting stickers for ocassional use only.
    I love my little xyron for little things
    I don't use my big xyron to often though (it is so expensive for refills and I could buy new dies with that kind of $)

    I do not use regular glue sticks though.

    I use my zig glue pen and my CM Photo tape and splits.

    I don't like the CM tape runner, I loved the old refillable one though.

    I have the xyron 150 but it's stll in it's little plastic bag.

    Hermafix, Hermafix, Hermafix, I can't scrap without it. I use the repositionable dots for nearly everything.

    I usually hide my adhesive on vellum, or use brads, but I will use glue stick in a pinch, it's the only thing I use glue stick for.

    I have some glue dots for buttons and larger objects, but they don't get used regularly.

    I have a little xyron (oh, and a big one!) which I mainly use for cut-out letters. I love the repositionable xyron adhesive, it doesn't even leave any little dots to rub off, but it's too expensive for everything, or I would use it for everything.

    Mostly my hermafix tape dispenser and glue dispenser. Use my xyron 150 lots too. Don't seem to use my glue sticks nearly as much as I used to. From hearing you all talk I think I'm going to have to get some vellum tape and try that soon.
