Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop April 2022 - Vellum

The Scrapbooking Global Team is comprised of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we participate in a scrapbooking Blog Hop Theme, like this one, to inspire all of us in our passion for crafting. Our Goal is to create, share, and inspire every crafter to keep our creative energy flowing.

Today's theme is brought to you by Sharni Haines and is all about incorporating Vellum into your layout. Stampin' Up has several Vellum products available to purchase, including some new ones added to the 2022-23 Annual Catalog going live on May 3, 2022. 

I decided to keep my layout simple by adding a layer of plain vellum to mute the bold colors in my layout.

  1. You're right - the layer of vellum works perfectly to tone down those bright colours and it gives an awesome frame too!! Totally brilliant.

    1. Thanks Julia! I never thought about the framing aspect, but I see it now!

  2. Such a great layout! I am going to try this on my next Birthday page for my boys :)

    1. Great to hear. It is a great way to use 6x6 dsp as well!

  3. I love the blocks of colour and the way you muted them with the layer of vellum! Great layout.

    1. Thanks you! The blocking has been a go to layout for me since Sara Levin shared it!

  4. Oh wow that is cool, I love how the vellum tones downs the bright colours without them loosing their bang on this page.

  5. I love the "Block" design of your layout! The vellum adds a great finishing touch to this page. So clever!
