Choosing The Right Glue Is Very Important!
Wait! Now That You Know About Scrapbooking Adhesives, Then You'll Need To Start Working On Your Layout....Let Me Show You...
Here are five important Do's and Don'ts you need to know about scrapbook glue:
✖ DON'T! Use just about any glue for scrapbooking.
✔ DO! Buy acid-free specialty adhesives.
Paper Mod Podge formula provides archival qualities as it is non-yellowing and acid-free.
Use photo corners if you don't want to permanently adhere your photos to your page.
Double-sided tape is easy to work with and can be cut to your desired shape and length.
✖ DON'T! Purchase cheap glue sticks.
✔ DO! Purchase quality glue sticks.
In regards to scrapbook adhesives, a glue stick is a great option for adhering lightweight materials. Be sure to purchase a quality acid free adhesives, such as Elmer's glue stick. Inferior glue sticks will quickly dry up and they tend to leave little lumps of glue on your material. These glue sticks also hold very little glue and will run out twice as fast as quality acid free glue sticks.
Glue sticks are good for quick adhering needs, but not for long-term durability.

✖ DON'T! Use hot glue guns for photos.
✔ DO! Use glue dots.
Have you ever flipped through an old photo album and you were distracted by the marks that tape left on the pictures or you noticed yellow spots left by glue?
Glue can be a good scrapbook adhesive, but you need to be careful in what type of glue you use. Although hot glue is strong and its adhesiveness will last for years, the heat and acidity can harm your photos.
You also want to avoid using Elmer's Glue or rubber cement on your photos. Instead, consider using glue dots for scrapbooking. Glue dots are double-sided adhesives that will bond with almost any surface. They're easy to use, aren't messy like other glues, and don't require any drying time.
This Ultra-Thin Glue Dots is acid-free and ultra-thin for smooth adhering.
✖ DON'T! Use dry scrapbook adhesives for chunky or heavy objects.
✔ DO! Use liquid craft glue.
The Helmar's liquid glue brand is also great for decoupage projects.
✖ DON'T! Adhere acrylic shapes with glue dots.
✔ DO! Use a clear glaze for clear embellishments.
Acrylic shapes have been a popular scrapbook item. Whether it's a pumpkin for Halloween or a snowman for a winter scene, acrylic shapes add a fun touch to scrapbook layouts. Because many of these shapes are translucent, you need a scrapbook adhesive that is clear. A clear glaze, such as Diamond Glaze, will provide a clear layer of adhesive. As the glaze dries, it gives a crystal clear bond.
When working with translucent embellishments, look for acid free glue with a clear finish.
