Hello and welcome crafty friends! It's Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS! Judy is your hostess this week and she's picked VELLUM as your trend! Here is what I created with vellum:
I went crazy with my layers, and I love it!! I die cut the fancy, swirly frames using velum, I also stamped and fussy cut the banners onto vellum. (My MISTI came in really handy to curve and line up the words in the banner!) The solid frames were die cut from both silver glitter paper and white card stock. The main image and the heart were stamped in silver ink, the banners in black Staz On ink. If you haven't figured it out by now, I have a milestone wedding anniversary coming up: our 25th on the 25th of May! This I will give to my hubby. I'm just hoping he doesn't sneak a peek on my blog before then. (I don't think he reads my blog, so it's all good! LOL!)
So, ready to break out and use that vellum you've been hoarding? Of course you are! Be sure to link up your project at Just Us Girls so we can see it! While there, please do check out what my teammies and our May Guest Designer, Aileen Ryan, have created. Wow, these ladies have some major talent!
Remember, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our May challenges, you'll be in the running for Guest Designer for the month of July! Good luck and happy crafting!
