Geek Lab: Stuck on You – An Adhesive Primer


Hey Friends! Happy Weekend.  I’m here to share tips on one of the most basic, unseen but important tools in paper crafting — Adhesive!

A good, no great adhesive sticks the first time, allows your layout or card to be the star of the show and leaves no trace! Let’s take a look at some of the most common adhesives:

  • Roller Tape I love this style of adhesive for its ease of use simply by rolling.  Most  if not all adhesive tape rollers are refillable as well.  I usually use this type of adhesive to attach cards panels to bases.

  • Foam tape: My go-to adhesive to pop out card layers and embellishments. Foam adhesive adds depth  and case be used to simulate movement.

  • Liquid adhesive: This type of adhesive provides the flexibility I need to attached smaller pieces, like sequins, where regular adhesive is left looking exposed.
