we r memory keepers crafter's tote + american crafts sticky thumb adhesive

I love my We R Memory Keepers grey and white 360 Crafter's Bag, and I'm so excited to now have a matching Crafter's Tote to make a set! The clean neutral colors appeal to my neat side, and I love the basic wide stripes. I recently got my hands on the new Sticky Thumb adhesive line from American Crafts and I knew my Crafter's Tote would be the perfect place to store and organize it.



While the products in this post were generously provided to me for free by my friends at American Crafts and We R Memory Keepers, my opinions and thoughts about this craft storage and scrapbook adhesive are my own. At first glance the Crafter's Tote may look like it won't hold as much as it does, but I was pleasantly surprised at how many craft supplies I was able to fit in.


The center pocket is not only wide enough for larger crafting supplies and tools, but it also holds several smaller pockets (both open and zipped) for smaller items like extra glue gun sticks and pens. I keep my Sticky Thumb Cordless Glue Gun and Tape Roller Refills inside.


The front pockets are deep and wide, so I was able to fit six Sticky Thumb Glue Sticks in one, the Sticky Thumb All-Purpose Glue and Glue Pen, in another, and the Tape Roller in the third pocket.


The thinner pockets behind the outer ones are where I keep my Sticky Thumb Sticky Dots. What I love about these little guys is they come in small, medium, and large sizes and they're individually wrapped so there's no accidently losing glue dots on a roll when it comes unrolled.


In the pockets on the back side I've got one more pouch of Sticky Dots, my QuickStik, and the Sticky Thumb Dimensional Foam Circles and Squares. My favorite Sticky Thumb adhesives, the Double Sided Red and White Tape are in the side pockets--both thin and thick widths. Love that stuff!



The inside scoop from my friends at American Crafts is that they spent a lot of time testing and researching this adhesive before releasing it to make sure they were offering crafters a quality product. Everything I've used from this line so far has been awesome. In particular I'm impressed with the cordless glue gun. I've tried other cordless glue guns before and have been disappointed that they didn't get hot enough or that the batteries didn't last long enough. I've put this one to the test and so far it has passed with flying colors. {Sticky} thumbs up from me, AC!
