Adhesive 101 Special

My good friend and fellow demonstrator, Donna Wizniuk, came up with a great special for the end of September, and I decided to borrow her idea and offer you the same deal!  It's called Adhesive 101.  Here's how it works:

We all use adhesives, but we often don't think to order them, so this special allows you to stock up on them, plus get a free spool of ribbon with the September Back to Spool Stampin' Up! special.

You'll get the following adhesives (the ones I use the most):

  • glue dots
  • stampin' dimensionals
  • 4 x SNAIL adhesive refills OR 1 SNAIL adhesive + 2 refills
  • multipurpose liquid glue
  • 2-way glue pen
  • sticky strip
  • spool of stitched satin ribbon in your choice of colour (Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple or Summer Starfruit)
***Regular price for all these items would be $78.19 with tax and shipping, but you'll get it all for only $55!***

This offer is valid until Tuesday, September 25.  Please contact me by Tuesday to let me know which option you would like (SNAIL refills or adhesive + refills) and what colour stitched satin ribbon you'd like.  (This offer is not available through online orders because the discounted price is my own special offer, and not from Stampin' Up!  Offer is only available to those in my immediate area, otherwise a $9.95 shipping fee will apply for other Canadian residents.)

Here's the 101 portion of the special: the adhesive education portion! 

Be sure and check out page 177 for uses on all the adhesives SU sells.
Glue Dots - the thing I use glue dots for the most is attaching buttons, ribbon bows, chipboard pieces.....great for attaching small, light weight pieces. 

Stampin' Dimensionals
- used to POP IT UP, I use dimensionals on 90+% of the projects I make!

SNAIL Adhesive
- SNAIL is my GO TO adhesive. I always use it for adhering layers, cardstock to cardstock(or pattern paper).'s new and improved, watch your next order(the roll on the dispenser is now blue, was white).  It applies much better(full coverage), and seems stickier. 

Multipurpose Liquid Glue
- I reach for liquid glue when adhering pieces that may need positioning or when there are several layers of something you need to have lined up evenly.  Being it is a liquid and needs time to dry, it allows you slide time.  This means you have time to adjust the pieces you are layering.  It also works great for adhering chipboard.  A word of caution, though, when applying, use sparingly.  When you press to adhere, excess will surface from the sides, and will be visible once dry.  Tombow mono is a very strong adhesive, it is more cost effective than double sided tapes.  If you don't mind the liquid aspect, the drying time........this adhesive is a GREAT choice.  I also use it on my clear mount stamps to make them stick to the clear blocks better.  Just apply a thin coat of it to the back of the stamp and let it dry.  The stamp becomes "tacky" and sticks really well to the blocks!

2-Way Glue Pen
- I LOVE this adhesive for attaching glitter.  It dries clear and can be used for lightweight tiny pieces where it is hard to attach SNAIL.

Sticky Strip - Sticky Strip is the TOUGH one.  I use it when I want to be sure something is going to STICK, and stick for a long time.  It's great for heavier weighted projects, 3-D items, party favours (treat boxes), home decor, textured or glossy surfaces.  CAUTION: once you have something in place using Sticky Strip you will not have much success in trying to reposition.  Once it's down, it's down!  The option of changing your mind isn't really an option.

Thank you, Donna, for this great idea!
