WHAT CRAFT ADHESIVE SHOULD I USE?

Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations!

One of the main question I get from new crafters when they start is what type of adhesive do I use. It is a question that takes me straight back to my nostalgic memories of when I first started in crafting. I received my first Cricut machine which was the Cricut Expression and soon after I was making projects using my Glue Sticks and Scotch Tape which i quickly realized was not very professional. So I looked for a solution, which I found in a now almost forgotten place. The Cricut Chat boards. There I kept hearing the word Xyron. What a funny little name, why would I want anything named Xyron? Well I soon figured out that this little name would be the answer to my question. 




So once I heard the funny little name I bought my first Xyron machine the Xyron 150 "X" Create-a-Sticker Machine, which is till my go to machine for adhesive. This little machine started my OBSESSION with Xyron and I never looked back. But I am getting ahead of myself. 

I LOVE Xyron so much it is the adhesive of choice in my craft room with the exception of my Scotch ATG . Everything else for my adhesive needs is Xyron, due to the fact that it is edge-to-edge adhesive? To show you all the Xyron can do I have decided to make a 2 video series going over the product family of Xyron. In this first video we will take a closer look at the adhesive family of Xyron. We will take a look at the  Create-A-StickersMega RunnerTape Runner and even how to get rid of the unwanted Xyron adhesive with the Adhesive Erasure. Let me show you my YouTube Video, and then underneath the video we will take a closer look at each product, what I use each individual product and any tips I have used!


Okay you know you want Xyron in your life now! Right? so if you are still asking you self some questions let's answer some with some bullet points and tips of each product! To purchase any of the products below either shop for the shopping list down below or click on ANY of the photos!
