As my chicks grow...

And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!

Glue Glider Pro and Glue Glider Max Review

I got my Glue Gliders Pro and Max in today...was kinda sweet, both came today from two different sellers!
The Glue Glider Max is a large, heavy duty tape. The Gun itself is large, and could be cumbersome as it is so large, but it is so lightweight, for me, that more than made up for the size. Plus, the 100+feet of tape is a huge bonus for me...I was going out every week and buying refills for my smaller adhesives.


The Max has a larger width of tape, not good for doing small projects...however, I used some to attach some cork to the front of one of my scrap-cabinets (pics for another day!) and it held better than the adhesive squares that came with the cork! One other bonus, for me, is that the tape is sectioned off in 1/8 inch pieces, so it is possible to put it just in a small area. This is great for adhering larger pieces together, or like I did in the following pics, adhering paper to glass bottles. Now, I must say, it is permanent, and once I glued it down, and gave it a little rub, it was stuck. The paper was tearing on the glass bottle and the bottles were cold, so it is definitely permanent!

The glue glider pro is MUCH smaller. Much less cumbersome. I have only tried the permatac tape tonight. The high tac and repositionable are en route to me...that said, the permatac doesn't seem as strong as the permanent with the Max. Of course, it is about half as wide as the max and again, it is scored in 1/8" increments, so smaller projects are a breeze.

Between the two, I will probably leave my Max at home when I go to crops. The Pro will be traveling with me. With both of them, you can pull the cartridge out and replace it with a different cartridge.
I will let you know what I think of the other cartridges once I receive them!~
