I have just completed my first layout - and am happy with it, except for the glue I used. I tried a basic craft PVA first of all, but it did not stick too well and has soaked through to the back of my base card. I then tried Collall Tacky Glue, which definitely stuck, but left things a bit wrinkly. Thinking that glue tape would be better, as it is dry? TIA for your advice.
Glue runners are the best way to go, liquid glue will soak thru and or buckle your paper and pictures. I like scortape or Sook Wang tape and with the tape type glue you can use Undo to take off the mistake and put it back on. Like when I put them down and they are not level or I want to add something behind it.
May I suggest that when you take a picture you lay it down on the floor and shoot it? (I have a poster board to put it on). That way you can see it front on.

After seeing your layout, it is not as wrinkly as I thought it might be! I have seen worst!
Southgirl has the better idea, you will learn Don's quirky humor, we all love him! Bless his heart....
Any of the tape runners will work fine, you will learn which you like best.
Hope to see lots more in your gallery soon!
I've never used adhesive rollers before. I purchased the Umbrella Crafts 6 pack of adhesive rollers. Is there some trick to using them? I can't seem to get them to dispense, nothing happens. There are no instructions, so I watched the video, it looks as if you just swipe it and it rolls on. Mine do nothing as if they're stuck. Can anyone help me?
