    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.

    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.
