    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Joan asked: "What is the best adhesive to use on vellum so you can't see it through the vellum?"
    A: I usually don't use adhesive for vellum. I either connect it to my cardstock with brads or ribbon. Sometimes I use adhesive when I know the place where I used adhesive will be covered up by another layer.

    Here is a great thread about this topic in our forum.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Laura has a few suggestion for the Paper Button tutorial:" I want to use the smallest Nestabilities shapes and emboss the edge on the top layer. Also for time, I want to try to use clear embossing powder for shine. I do not have a crop-o-dile, so I will use my tiny punch and line up the holes."
