What kind of adhesive can I use that doesn't show through the vellum? I hate those little adhesive marks. TIA

I use the 3M vellum adhesive, sometimes you do see a little bit showing through, but not always. I do try and put it behind the words or picture I have on the vellum and then I never notice it. You could also run it through a zyron then the adhesive is on the entire surface and you wouldn't notice any spots. I also use brads or eyelets to attach it to a page, then there is absolutely no marks.

I've been using a 3M vellum adhesive tape and it works wellbut not perfectly. I tried the vellum through the Xyron last night and it was great! I was scrapping with friends and we had a great idea for tags for her family heritage album. She had great pattern cardstock and coordinating vellum (thank you Club Scrap!). She'd then used a great tree punch on the matching solid color cardstock to place on top of the vellum. The the hard part, adhering all of that was going to be a pain in the tookas. Solution, Xyron it all! They came out so beautiful, I wish I'd had a chance to scoop one and scan it before she left.

I purchased the Glue Dots vellum transparent adhesive. Haven't tried it yet but it says its truly transparent even on dark backgrounds.

I've used the Scotch brand on vellum and a transparency and it still showed up a bit, so will try the Glue Dot brand.

I use Zyron. I have a couple of different sizes. I also use brads to fix to cardstock, that way I dont have to use an adhesive at all.

Thank you for all your great help. I'm off to try your ideas.

Creative Memories have just replaced their clear phot splits with frosted (and put more in a box) and they are supposed to not show through vellum.
