Have you used vellum on a layout?
I love how it softens the layout, and gives it a frosted look.
I had some older photos that this frosted vellum was the perfect match for.
You can add the vellum as mats or even as a larger piece to soften the whole layout.

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!

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.

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!

Woohoo. WASHI TAPE!
It is now part of the Creative Memories line.
Our first offering is part of our Toil & Trouble Collection. Although it might be included in the Halloween line, the designs are in no way themed for the holiday. The colours are bright and can be added to any card flaps to put a finishing touch on your mail.
In fact, add washi tape to ANYTHING for fun! Why not, when you have 26.2 feet on each roll? That means you get over 104 feet between these four rolls.
Most importantly it is photo-safe!
