How To Use Vellum!

Vellum is one of those incredible crafting mediums what when used properly can add so much to a simple layout or card. The trick with vellum is finding a way to adhere it to your project in a way that doesn’t show through the transparent paper. Once you’ve mastered the adhering, vellum can be used to add a layer of interest over a solid colour or pattern. Vellum is also great to use as a way of toning down, or muting a pattern so that either your photos or journaling can stand out and be the visual focus of the layout or card.

Let me show you some of my tricks as well as a layout and card that came together super quickly using vellum!

Countryside Comfort Scrapbooking Borders

Moving into a new home in a new city a few weeks ago, I was really excited, but I felt a bit out of my element, a little anxious. Stacks of boxes from floor to ceiling, furniture that didn’t fit the same way it did in our last home…it was overwhelming.

But little by little, one box at a time, one room at a time, our new house is taking shape. I’ve been appreciating the cosy nooks I’ve discovered, the way a framed picture looks in just the right spot…it feels like home. And my anxiousness is giving way to contentment.

Comfort on the Countryside–The Pumpkin Patch

Hi, everybody! Nicole here, with a layout I created using the Pumpkin Chain Border Maker Cartridge and the Country Comfort collection.  The bold colours are so pretty and I the vellum paper is gorgeous! If you’re looking for a way to soften up your projects, vellum papers will do the trick!

Edward is at that age now where he thinks he is too big to go to the pumpkin patch… So, I decided to go through some photos from 2014 to scrap. I found a few of my favourite photos from when we visited Papa John’s Farm. He had such a great time searching for the right pumpkin!

Family Fun with Countryside Comfort

I love family time.  It is the best warm and fuzzy feeling there is.  I am sure that you have seen these family photos of mine on many projects, but let me share the story.

It was a fall day in 2011.  My oldest son was a senior in high school.  This mamma bear was on a mission to have fun family photos taken before the birdie left the nest.  At this point, my boys were so tired of me sticking a camera in their face, so I was feeling “iffy” about how the day might go.

To my surprise, it was the most fun day our family had had in a long time.  We smiled, and laughed, and were just plain silly.  So, if you have seen some of the silly ones—this is why. We actually got in the car to head home, and they both commented about how much FUN that photo shoot was.

So, find yourself a FUN-loving photographer who will let your family be yourselves—-and capture those memories…..before the nest is empty.

Love Laugh & Enjoy Scrapbook Layout

When I first saw this collection you could say I swooned just a tad over it.  This colour palette is my go-to.  It is the colours that I use in decorating my house, and also what I have used predominantly in my scrapbooks over the years.  You could say it is my comfort zone.  So, most definitely, it was so easy for me to create with.  It reminds me of snuggling up on the couch with a warm blanket and a good book.  Comfort.  It also reminds me of my grandmother and great-grandmother.  The doily looking overlay on the paper, the birds, and the vintage clock in the stickers.
