One more thing...I would like to try some glue sticks. I have used sticky tabs almost exclusivley. There was a short time where I tried a glue stick and with time, my photos started to come loose. There are times that using a glue stick would be so much easier. Which ones are good and which are not? I would love to know what works best for you! Thanks!

Me, I will never use a glue stick again. I used a glue stick when I first started scrapping a few years ago. It didn't take long for everything on the pages to come loose once the glue dried. I now use Duck tape runner found in the office supply section at Walmart.

Judy, get your self a glue that comes in a pen form zig glue pens come in 3 different tip sizes, adhesive tech makes a gel glue pen with a sponge dauber top, and I've seen the new Martha Stewart line and there were several sizes of tips in that. You will have the convenience of "glue stick" type application but it won't dry out and fall off http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The office depot cheapie glue sticks worked so well when I started that I can't get my pictures off! I was going to redo them, now I have to reprint them because they are budging without getting torn. I also use the duck brand glue sticks. Those are working well for me also. But I don't use glue sticks on my photo's anymore, just the die cuts and photo mats. They do have a tendency to curl your photo's.

I mainly use the tape runners but when i need a glue stick i stick with the ZIG brand. haven't had any problems with that one coming undone.
