My scotch adhesive for my ATG gun... Holds well and is reasonably priced :)  A close second would be the Tombow liquid in the white bottle.  That stuff sticks!

Tombow MONO permanent adhesive runner
It's my favorite because it's permanent yet I can still move things around on my page.  It's easy to clean up the excess.  I can find refills at the big box stores.  I've tried others (cheaper ones) and this is still my personal favorite.  I go through a lot of it.  I had the large xyron and it would get wasted because the tape would bunch up.  I tried cheaper and it would just rip my cardstock. 

For smaller items like sequins, I like

The 1/4" gold ATG tape for the ATG 714.  I love my ATG gun/adhesive because of the amount on a roll, how well it actually holds and that it's not messy!

I like Tombow Mono Tape Runner adhesive in Permanent because of ease of use, and it sticks pretty well!

Thanks to Sher, I love scrappy glue - hate the bottle - so I split it up into smaller fine tip bottles

After watching Shimelle's videos, I switched to the adhesive she recently started using.  It's called Kokuyo and right now the only place I can find it is Amazon but would LOVE if ACOT started carrying it.  I absolutely love this adhesive.

Different adhesives for different things! I use a couple of different glue pens and a variety of glue dots, but my main, go-to adhesive is the Scrapbook Adhesives tape runner.

My favorite is my little Therm-o-web tape runner XL. I love that little thing. For glueing down embellies I also thank Sher for Scrappy Glue. I too don't like the bottle but I just take the top off and use a very long toothpick to get the glue just where I want it. I also use Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue when I want something to hold fast. I use the long toothpicks for that too.

This is my go to.  I love that, despite the fact that it is ultimately permanent, there is some play in it for a few minutes if you make a mistake!  In fact, I just ordered three refills!

That's what I like about my Therm-o-web tape runner too. I have an ATG gun but it is not forgiving at all. I don't use it very much any more.

My go to adhesive for paper is scotch double sided tape, my go to glue for smaller embellishments is Ranger's matte medium, and I also use plenty of mini glue dots and pop dots!

My favorite is Yes! Paste. It beats everything I've ever used. It allows time to adjust placement, it doesn't warp the paper because it isn't wet like liquid glues, once dry it will not let go - for years. I apply with a pallet knife sparingly along the edges of the papers and photos, therefore it lasts for a very long time. It is the perfect choice for chipboard projects because of it's holding power over time.
I used to use tiny Glue Dots for embellishments like sequins or pearls, now I use a bottle of Dries Clear and I've found it holds extremely well. I've only been using it for less than a year so can't say how it holds up over the years. I've also started using Dries Clear for the delicate die cuts that have a lot of thin lines to stick to the page. A tiny dab goes a long way also.

I cannot decide which tape runner I like best, so my favorite all time, so far glue is my Ivy Hollow ScrapFusion permanent adhesive! I have bought huge bottles of it !, it comes in a needle tip and I use it on all my embellishments. Its non-toxic, non-hardening, never brittle , non-acidic and dries clear!
However on my trip to WA in December 2017 to care for my Dad we stayed at a motel and I had my scrap tote in the car and a bottle of it froze! Ruined ! Don’t freeze! LOL

Chris, I have been using the Kokuyo Dot roller for many years.  Even when they stopped selling them here, i had stocked up on refills.  I used the blue Scotch dot roller when I ran out, but then found the Kokuyo refills through a Japanese website.  I just ordered some more refills from Amazon 2 days ago!  I love the dot rollers because I can rub them off the dots with my finger if I get it in the wrong place.
