Just wondering what everyone's preferred way is to glue layers on to each other? I have used my sticker machine which I love but it's hard to move the layer if you've placed it incorrecty at first. The glue sometimes makes the paper hard when it dries! What does everyone else use? Thanks

I use the Zig Pen, Atg, double sided sticky tape and liquid glue.I love my xyron too. Maybe you should look for the repositionable refills for you xyron.

For the small pieces I use ZIG. I love it!
If I want it really strong I use hot glue gun (big area of course.)
ATG works well too with bigger area.

I hope this helps.

for some reason, how you glue is very personal!!!
you will find that you need lots of different glues for different projects.
ATG is probably the easiest and most useful.
I also use LOTS of the foam little squares for pop ups and zots (I think that's
what they're called) the small glue dots.
I use the zig for very very small things as well as the xyron

I love adhesive! Like a previous post said, different adhesives serve different purposes. I use my Xyron machines, zig pen, atg gun (my go to for most projects), liquid glue, mod podge, glue dots, pop dots, the red tape...the list goes on. The atg and liquis glues seem to be the most cost effective and holds extremely well!

I'm in agreement with HisGem, different adhesives for different situations.

Ditto! Zig for the small pieces, my 1/4" tape ATG for everything else. I use tacky glue every once in a while, too.
