I found them in my stash. I have about 4 each of the red brickwall, the teal woodgrain and the brown woodgrain.

How do I use them? I scrap the 11 x 8.5 landscape. I don't want to use the entire thing on one page either. And how do I adhere them? I bought them just in case, but never learned how to use them until now.

I wish they were still making the overlays though. I totally would buy more.

Lucky you!

If you don't mind cutting them up you could try making shapes out of them, or using them as borders or for layering just as you would patterned paper or washi tape.

As for adhering them, usually when working with a transparent item I will use a glue dot and then try to hide that part of the transparency with another embellishment or paper.

you could also go for the 'visible' approach and use staples to attach the piece of overlay (whatever size / shape you cut it) to your page... if the rest of the page style matched that sort of 'grungier' style, that is.

I use mine just as i would use any patterned paper. I like to slather paint on one side of the transparency, helps the design pop when put on the layout if the colors are not contrasting enough on their own. And I like staples, too.

This is when stores like ACM and M's come in handy. They stock older stuff, and in the last few weeks I've seen (and bought) overlays at both.

Fun! Those transparencies are a nice change from regular paper and cardstock. I love how vibrant the patterns are.

You could cut up and use as you would with any other type of patterned paper, to layer or block with. Try layering it over a similar-sized piece of patterned paper.

Try adhering with ATG or a glue dot behind part of the pattern.

You could sew them on.

If you have any type of die cutting system, you could cut shapes from the transparencies. Staples would be a fun way to adhere a transparent shape.

Have fun!

My LSS has tons of Hamblys. If you're looking for something Pea Mail me and I'll do my best to find it. But I make no promises. And they do have quite a lot so asking me what they have I won't be able to give you a good answer.
