I'm using a new to me glue product and I thought I would share just a bit about it. The glue is called:
t was the only glue the teacher recommend for the bookbinding process. What I was impressed with was the fact that this glue did not cause the paper to rumple and have that " I used glue" look even on thin 20# bond paper. The shop price was out of my range so I skipped this product and started searching for glues. You may remember I settled with a product called "Ultimate Glue" UG works great but there is one problem, it is very thick and very dry for a wet glue, and this meant I was having to use alot of squeeze pressure on the bottle and this really was bothering my hand (I have a tendon/ligament problem) It was enough of a problem that I had to find another product. The Lineco product is really really thin, I don't know how it doesn't totally saturate the paper, but it doesn't. The hold is super strong with just a tiny, tiny bit and the paper remains flexible - you have a 30 second window before it sets up, so you can straighten out your art work if you need (that is important for me)! I ended up purchasing this in the gallon size on Amazon, with prime the shipping was free and the total cost was 47.00, I just checked it before writing this post and noticed it has gone up 10.00 !! Here is a link to the Amazon page with smaller sizes. This product is also made in the USA and packaged and sold by a company about 4 miles from my house!! That is important to me too!
Here's a few cards I've made over the weekend:
The very pretty rose bud paper was a freebie from Graciellie Designs
Calendar card #5
I made this for a teacher friend
Calendar card #6
Calendar card #7
All of the calendar cards are going in the mail to friends, this is a licensed image and to re sell them would be a violating copyrite.
I am having a lot of fun making these cards!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you found my chapter on the Glue story helpful!
Have a great day!Ginny M
