Your glue has to be acid free for scrapbooks. ATG (Adhesive Transfer Guns) are all the rage right now in the scrapbooking world. It's an upfront cost but in the long term it's more economical.

Organize your life around your dreams and watch them come true.

I use Fabri-Tac or Magna-Tac, by Beacon Adhesives. I use a coupon at AC Moore, as my Michael's no longer has either. Just a tiny bit works wonders, and an 8 ounce bottle retails for about $10 full price.

In general I use Scrapbook Adhesives tape runner (the little red one). I want to get an ATG but worried about the size and where I would keep it.

I can't use liquid glue or glue sticks because I get the crap everywhere.

I also use glue dots for dimension, Xyron X for ribbon, and this sheet of tiny glue dots for anything too thin and small to get adhesive on any other way

I have found that glue dots work the best for scrapbooking. http://www.papermart.com/glue-dots-carded-dispenser/id=33996#33996
They are very easy to use and mess-free!

dont mean to bump into here on my own problem but what can i use for brown packaging paper that you can buy at walmart and cardstock paper from another source? making my own invites and i need to glue the brown paper and cardstock together and it needs to stay flat..?
for the original poster: i heard that the dots are good, ive never used them because i kinda left that area covered in dust, lol. I do know elmers glue is horrible to use..

i'm fairly new too but from what i've learned/heard, acid free glue sticks and glue dots and anything that's gonna come out flat and stay that way (as in not wrinkle up the paper like regular old elmer's glue would) is perfect. people like glue dots because you don't have to wait for them to dry, they're just little dots of adhesive you peel off a roll of paper. they're like $4 for a roll of 200 dots at michael's. glue sticks are on the cheaper side, i think scotch and elmer's make some good ones. michael's also has a cheap glue stick by the brand "craftsmart", you can get a pack of 4 small ones for like $2. they're good too. =)

I have a big pink Scotch Advanced Tape Glider that I use for almost everything. If I remember correctly, it was a bit expensive, but it's been worth it. They make both all-purpose and acid-free tape rolls.
