The last layout I did I had a heck of a time getting those darn things to stick! I haven't had a problem with them before. Maybe the fact that I moved them around a little bit didn't help matters much!

same here - mine don't stick very well either. usually, I put them on my page and then stack heavy stuff on top to try to force them to stick. I hate using liquid glue - it's too messy for me...so that's my last resort.

You would think after all the complaining they would fix the problem. Good thing they have a corner on the market or people would give up on them. Am I whining? LOL!

One thing I've noticed too with the vinyl ones, at my LSS, they curl away from the paper they are stuck to. So it's certainly going to happen on our pages - will use some glue from now on and not rely on it sticking!

Oh and no Denise, you're not whining!
There isn't anything wrong with wanting them to improve their product when it's lacking in a certain area!

i wish they would improve on it, too. i mean just because they have a corner on the market... i think that actually means they SHOULD try to improve in that area.

I heard the adhesive problem was with the velvet & vinyl, which they said they had fixed during last CHA but I beg to differ there as my fabric Dolce Thickers are falling off a page I recently did. Grrr! Crying or Very sad

they are actually really cool and i love all the styles. you should try them, you just might want to invest in extra adhesive (i recommend the Martha Stewart glue pen)

I was amazed to find out I had about 15 packages, I really don't buy them or so I thought ;-) I use gel medium to tack 'em down.
