I like to use transparencies in pocket page albums. They add a unique look to a pocket where you can see through to the following pages. I also use these on layouts over solid paper or vellum to enhance the transparency pattern. You can cut these into any shape, or cut large mats (or use the whole sheet) to add pictures or journaling cards on top or beneath, or cut into strips for page borders or to run beneath a photo/journaling box. You could punch circles from this transparency and layer in the background of a layout also. There are many ways to use transparencies!
