CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Vellum Makes Everything Better

Welcome to the April 2017 
Technique Blog Hop!



For this month's CTMH Technique Blog Hop, we are featuring creative techniques using "Vellum". Many of Close To My Heart's Fundamental Paper Packet include vellum.

If you are coming from Wendy Kessler's Blog, you are in the correct spot. I hope you are enjoying everyone's inspiration. After your stop here, below you will find a link to Kirsten Desorcy's blog posting. 

I am featuring two - double page layouts using the Uptown Fundamental Paper Packet.  

My first layout "My Lucky Day" was so much fun to make. The trickiest part of using vellum is hiding the adhesive.  I have the striped vellum paper overlaying the Pansy Cardstock. Prior to adhering the vellum to the cardstock, I created my layout on top of the vellum using the "You & Me Complements" and Silver Shimmer Trim. Once I had everything attached to the top of the vellum, I turned the vellum over and used my adhesive behind the areas that photos, paper strips, title, etc...were placed and adhered it to the Pansy cardstock. 


I only used a border strip of the gold dotted vellum on the top and bottom of the layouts.  I used glue dots in each corner to adhere the vellum. I then covered up the glue dots using the Black Glitter Paper on the corners.



I hope this helped shed some ideas on how to adhere vellum to your projects. Thanks for stopping by and we love hearing from you so please leave a comment. Now it's time to hop on over to Kreative Kirsten's Blog

  3. The corner accents work great for hiding the vellum adhesive, very clever.
