Vintage Images and My Favorite Glue!

Hello Friends, I hope you are enjoying the vintage images! They are all so special to me and I am enjoying sharing them with you!

This is a page from a vintage Golden Book.

I love this sweet little red house!

I have had several questions as to what glue I use. So I want to show you my 3 top favorites!
My very favorite is this glue stick! It is my go to glue for everything. It is super sticky, dries quickly yet gives me a few seconds to reposition. It's great for crafters and scrappers!
The best part is that it's available at Wal Mart and Hobby Lobby for $ 1.99.

My favorite wet glue for glitter and ric rac is Aleene's Tacky glue.
It is available at Wal Mart and most craft stores.

I also love the ease of double sided tape. This is my favorite and can be found at Wal Mart. I could go through two a week if I let myself!
I hope this has been helpful!
Have a wonderful day, Lindsey

I soooo love the images you share! I think we have the same vintage tastes--everything image you post just makes me gasp--thanks so much! Love that sweet little lamb!!! Lindsey--thanks for sharing about the glue stick--I hadn't known about that one...and sounds like we use the double-sided tape about the same--I've DEFINITELY used two or more in a week!

I love vintage Golden books - they have the best pictures!! I hate to tear them out for my projects! I found a wonderful old book at a thrift store the other day - it was a children's book with the large print like the dick and jane books - I can't wait to play with it!

Have a great week and thanks so much for sharing!!

xoxo Jess

Thanks for sharing the lovely images and for sharing your glue secrets; I love the tacky glue too, but I don't think that those other two are available here. I love golden books too. Here one of the large supermarkets has a series of golden books decorations; wall hangings, children's services, tins and christmas decorations, like napkins and tablecloths, just lovely!

I love spencer and muffin!! I had to get this in there. Cuteness overload.

Question: What is your favorite glue to glue paper to glass? I am in need of suggestions.

Thank you so much for sharing your images!! Wonderful.

I'm so glad you did this post, because I am going to try my hand at that collage in the near future, and since I've never done anything like it before, I appreciate knowing the kinds of products that you use!
Have a great day!

Thanks for sharing such lovely vintage images. I'm especially grateful for your adhesive tips. I think that is the most difficult decision I have to make when crafting...what adhesive to use.

What great information! I need to make a run to Hobby Lobby tomorrow so I'll put a few more things on the list! Thanks!

I love your vintage piccies Twyla and thanks for sharing your glueing tips. I too use a glue stick, tacky glue and doublesided tape (different brand names downunder) and each has it's own purpose.
Warmest hugs,

Happiness to you!

I'm enjoying all of your projects and the sharing of the vintage images. Love 'em! I agree 100% about the Pioneer glue stick. It was the only brand we carried when I worked at the scrapbook store..I use it all the time. Well that, and my ATG tape guns. I think I need a holster! Great job ladies!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Honestly, I have not found a glue that is just perfect but am so glad to have some tips from you! I'll try the Pioneer brand and hope that works for me. I often use the sticky tape runners and like those a lot but have not been excited with Elmer's Glue for anything that I want to stay glued! This is really helpful! (I also love those vintage graphics)! Thank you! Coralie
