I keep ruining my pictures by laying them on my self healing mat to put adhesive on the back. Can I save the mat or do I need to get a new one?

How are the pictures getting ruined? Have you cleaned the mat? Can you put the picture on another surface (piece of paper or table) when you apply adhesive?

Put a piece of paper between the pic and the mat and don't ever lie them face down on your mat. Or, get a small one just for your pics and keep it on top of the bigger one.

What is happening to your photos? I have two of the BG self healing mats and have never had a problem....they right in the middle of my general work area so I apply taperunner on them all the time! Wondering if I am not paying attention to my photos after the fact now!
