Friday Night Fab Five: Stuck On You

EDIT: Thanks to all of your amazing title suggestions for my layout contest, I've come to the decision that I need help deciding my favorite. lol So my husband is going to help me and I will announce the winner this weekend! Thanks for entering, feel free to add more before tomorrow if you want! :D

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 things for the week that I generally adore. This week it's all about being crafty. You can only be as crafty as the glue you use to keep everything from falling apart, eh? :D I love finding new adhesives to try but do find myself surrounded by 5 stickies in particular (all photos from

1. Aleene's Original Tacky Glue

Aleene's can be used for a variety of projects. I use it mostly on fabric-y type things that are awkward to use with other adhesives.

2. Mod Podge

My mom is the Queen of Decoupage so I was practically raised on Mod Podge.

3. Terrifically Tacky Tape

This stuff is awesome and is a God send for attaching sequins. It comes in different sizes and it is s-t-r-o-n-g.

4. Glue Dots
I'm new to Glue Dots but it was love at first glue. They're clear, come in different sizes and are extra sticky.

5. 3L Tape Runner
Ah, the old tried and true tape runner, my scrapping best friend.

And there you have it for this week's Friday Night Fab Five! What are some of your favorites this week?


  1. I used to use Aleene's and then I found should totally get some of that!!
    It is clear and it is awesome!!!!
    Have a great weekend!!

  2. I am trying Mod Podge for the first time! I bought a sample set that included the sparkle, gloss, matte, outdoor and paper.

  3. of my studio-the almight Mod Podge and Tacky Glue. Used both today, as a matter of fact.
    Can't wait to find out the winner of your contest. My contribution was SO dorky!!! LOL Have a wonderful weekend, Theresa

  4. I tried decoupaging a heart shaped box once using mod what a disaster. big kudos to those of you with craft skills! :-)

  5. My, how talented you are! I'm exhausted just reading your lovely post (and all the comments above!!)

    Wishing you all a lovely weekend!


  6. ahhh adhesives, those necessary and EXPENSIVE things we all need! I have all but the tacky tape...hmmmm! And no videos tonight! WTH!!!!!!! Are you feeling okay! xOxO

  7. me loves me ZIP DRY!!! LOVE! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  8. your favorites are my favorites - but I have to add "Quick Grab" for those pesky heavy-ish objects that you don't want to sit and hold while the glue dries!

  9. Me loves Zip Dry tooooooo!!! I have all of these and man I hate to spend money on adhesives...but I go through them like water!!!

    Have a great weekend, sweet friend!!!

  10. Ooh - these are some of my faves too - the only other thing I would add that probably wouldn't be technically categorized as adhesive, BUT you do use it to ADHERE things is my Tim Holtz mini attacher - LOVE IT!

  11. I'm addicted to Glossy Accents which I do use as an adhesive sometimes when I'm to lazy to get up and get my adhesives basket :P

    Paperpatch/Decopatch I now can't live without for my duckies, DST of any kind, glue dots, PVA of any kind, book binding glue is awesome, so strong just don't spill it as it aint ever coming off. (The glue mountain in the bottom of my drawer that has resisted all types of chiselling is testament to that!)

    And of course, Super Glue. Ah Super Glue. What a love/hate relationship. Can't live without it, can't use it without gluing some part of me to the project! *sigh*

  12. Good morning! Over from SITS... Great picks all around, I totally agree with them all. Have a great weekend!

  13. Hi there.
    I've used all of those.
    Stopping by via SITS to say hello.
    Have a great day!

  14. Love Tacky Glue. It works for just about anything crafty! I use mod podge for a lot of things too! We used Glitter Mod Podge on Kendall's name in her room! I KNOW you have used glitter mod podge before!!??? Love this weeks fab five. Hope you and Toot are doing well!

  15. That is the crafers dream list! I wonder if you remember the episode of the little rascals where they glue the little boy to the stairs? Wonder if that was mod podge or tacky glue? The little boy was stuck saying "remarkable"

  16. I am not a huge crafter daaaaahling, but I do remember that hot glue is kind of an amazing thing (except i've always burnt myself LOL).
    Have a fab weekend.
    *kisses* HH

  17. After years of failing projects I now only stick to Bond other fave lately is Diamond Glaze...use as an adhesive or can be used instead of resin esp. when it's small flat projects...

  18. Maggi, I absolutely love your blog! That is in my top five this week. You've posted some awesome stuff lately!!

  19. I love Tombow adhesive products.... and Glossy Accents...I use Glue Dots too...I do use Mod Podge but I hate that things (like dust) stick to I use Claudine Hellmuth's gel medium for the top like a charm (just too expensive to use for a whole project!)

  20. I have to agree with you on all five. They are absolutely great to have on hand!

    Stopping by from SITS

  21. Awesome fab five....I love mod podge!

  22. LOVE it all! Pack it up and come play with me!
