  1. I've used the ribbon adhesive, LOVE it. I really want to try the adhesive squares, guess I better go buy some!

    LOVE this cupcake line!!!! I've been drooling over it, I just ordered the mini album in this line, so super cute!

  2. I've used the Glider Pro and really like that. I was surprised how light weight and easy to use it is -- I thought it would be heavy and awkward. Haven't tried the other new products, but I will look for them.

  3. Unfortunately I don't use Glue Arts products very often. My LSS doesn't carry them. When I order online and they have them I order LOTS of GA products. Love the cupcake line from LYB.

  4. Such sweet treats! I would love to try the extreme squares. I hate it when the glue doesn't hold!!! Especially since I am trying to get into more 3-d embellished cards.

  11. I'm coming over from LYB to say thank you for those amazing project ideas shared using the cupcake love line! And thanks, too, for giving me a chance to win such an awesome prize here! I own the Scotch 714 glue gun, and would love to try the Glue Glider pro...I hear it is much lighter and easier on the wrists!

  14. First I am going to say LYB sent me, but I visit our blog everyday (along with theirs). Second, I LOVE my Glue Glider Pro and use the regular adhesive. I can't get my hands on the ribbon or any other types locally. I know I need to order them on line somewhere, but I so want to support local stores. I am dieing to try the other types and keep praying I will win!

  57. LYB sent me here. Love the projects and I'd love to try your ribbon adhesive. Some ribbon and lace are really hard to stick down with dry adhesive and wet adhesive shows. I usually give up and sew on ribbon/lace. I'm excited to know you have a product solution.

  75. I have not tried your products yet - I will be looking for them at my local scrapbook store soon! I think the ribbon adhesive sounds interesting, I use a lot of ribbon on cards & on scrapbook pages & would love to find something that works well & isn't messy. The adhesive squares sound nice too - I use those type of things to make elements 'pop' :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. Oh love the cupcakes. will have to do this one. I need more tape I ran out and the one place that carry's it was out.. I haven't tried any of the others or ribbon never found it around here. guess I'm lucky to get the tape every now and then.

  90. I fell in love with LYB's Cupcake Love collection before it was even out in stores!! These projects just confirm how adorable and versatile the collection is :)

    I've never tried any of the Glue Arts products, but the ribbon adhesive sounds like something I would use VERY often! I try using glue, but when it dries, it shrinks my ribbon or makes it warped and wavy :(

    ReplyDelete
  91. I have not tried the products but I'd love to!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I love everything I see! I would love to have the opportunity to try these products. Thank you!
