Paper Mod Podge Product Review and Samples

I found this Plaid Paper Mod Podge at Michaels. I have a lot of experience using regular MP on altered papercrafts but thought I'd try this special MP. I love it! The first thing that I noticed is that as a glue, it dries faster than regular MP and the texture was less messy and easy to work with. And, its acid-free and non-yellowing. :)

I made four altered composition notebooks using the the PMP as the glue and sealer. The only issue that I had was on one of the back of the books where I used cheap cardstock. Some of the blue seemed to lift off and get on my foam brush. The rest of the books with patterned papers and better quality cardstock did not have a problem. Also, I would advise not stacking projects until you are 100% certain the sealant is dry. Oops. Otherwise, this was a really easy project.

Below are two of the books I made for my siblings.

Ethan book (age 5) Papers: Basic Grey Mellow, Letter Stickers: Wild Asparagus
DaRue book (age 11) Pink Distressed Paper: Bobunny, Letters and Borders: Wild Asparagus

*Oh, and something fun to check out: Craft Critique Holiday Carnival 1, 2, and 3. My Krispie pops are part of number 3. All three days are chock full of fun ideas for Christmas gifts and decorations.

I found the link to your blog page from Googling (not sure if that is a word or not??) Paper Mod Podge. I am making an Expanding File Box where you glue Designer Paper to chipboard, add an accordian fold cardstock piece to the sides and make file pockets inside.

From your post you recommend using the Paper Modge Podge. I am wondering if the consistancy is different with the Paper MP compared to the regular MP. I am not using MP on the outside of the project just for gluing the paper to the chipboard. In making the project the first time, I found I need a glue that will spread easy with a foam brush. I had used Aleene's Tacky Glue and it was extremely hard to spread around. I am not worried about the acid free part that I know is in the Paper MP.

Would you recommend regular MP or Paper MP for a project like this?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
