Get out that vellum!

When I fist started scrapping there was noting lovelier than the sheer pristine sheets of vellum lining the shelves at my local scrapbook store. In fact I routinely used my 50% off coupons to buy packs of the white vellum at JoAnns. One time I hit a great sale of 12×12 embossed vellum at 10 cents a sheet and yet I bought a ton….OK so now what? I have a lot of vellum, isn’t it time we brought it back in style again? I think so too!

My sister got married this fall and as a gift I made her an album of the shots My husband and I took. This is the intro page. I used stamps by The Rubber Cafe to emboss the design on the vellum.  Make an embossing pouch to emboss easier, how to here. I stitched a pocket at the top of the page to hold a note to the bride and groom. My sister should be opening her album today! They return from their honeymoon today and it is waiting for them! I hope they like it! *By the way, I just got word that The Rubber Cafe will soon be carrying Copic markers at a price even The Frugal Crafter would love!

As for the printed vellum you can use it as a luminary. Here I took 3 picture frame mats and placed the printed vellum behind the “windows”, then punced holes in the side with my Crop a Dial and tied them together with twine. Inside I placed a large jar candle (no open flames please!)  it is beautiful when it glows!

Other used for vellum:

Print journaling spots on them, trim closely and they will be ready to go the next time you scrap. Look in digital kits you already have to find some or check out DB boho frames & DB frilly Frames at scrapnfonts.com, they are still on sale I think!

Are you expecting? Make you birth announcements ahead of time the print the details on vellum with the baby arrives and attach to the cards with ribbon or brads (thanks to Nicolle who just had baby Lily this weekend for that tip, she is a cutie!)
