I use Scotch double sided tape. It's great, easily available and somewhat cheap.

I use a combination all those: tape runner, squares & the glue pen. You can visit the Creative Memories website to view different layouts. You can also visit the Cricut website to see more. All for free!!!!!!! Start simple, have fun. You can always add more later. Mix up you styles. It is only paper. Recent photos can be remade too.

I LOVE the tape runner from CM. It lasts a long time because you only use the length of tape that you really need, compared to others that are similar in design, but their tape is often cut in squares (the CM tape runner tape is cut in really small segments so you can stop at any time). And you know it's photo safe - our scientists make sure all our products are safe and are great quality. :-)

And the precision point adhesive (the pen that mandy was referring to) is a great choice for smaller things - or I use it a lot for my Cricut letters. Even though they might not be small, they tend to be kinda skinny so the pen works really well for those.

Be sure your adhesive is acid free...a good one is the tape runner from Creative Memories. They also have a great glue pen for smaller embellishments or letters! Just have fun with it and make it special to you! Create Keepsakes is a magazine that has FANTASTIC ideas, it comes out once a month. May want to check it out at your local library first to see if its something you would be interested in. Happy Scrapping!
