When I first began to take card classes, I often wondered why my demonstrator had so many adhesives. I was sure it was because she wanted to get us to buy glue we didn't need. Guess what? As I've worked in this industry, I've seen it's like any other industry, you use the correct tool for the task at hand.
I soon saw the benefit of different adhesives as I made more and more cards and projects. Using the correct adhesive makes the project go smoother and look nicer.
