Silhouette Sunday #12: The Beauty of Vellum

vellum1Hello! I have not posted any new Silhouette Sundays in longer than I would like to admit.


Yesterday I was working on my Project Life album and decided I liked the idea of including some Vellum on some layouts. I tend to buy kits and supplies when Silhouette has one of it’s many sales so you wouldn’t be surprised to hear that I purchased a package of vellum but never used it. So I dove right in and selected shapes from my library that I thought would cut nicely and can be used on my album or some cards. I made sure to fill the page up so I could use up the whole sheet. I could probably added more but it was my first cut so I didn’t take my chances. But next time I will put them closer together and put more in there. I took basic shapes and duplicated and re-sized them for variety.


I wanted a shape to go with my photo of a book haul and I loved this one I had of a girl sitting on a stack of books. The funny thing is that I literally have to move books off of my chair in my book nook when I read or else I would be sitting on them. So I thought this image would be perfect. Look at the detail. I can’t believe it cut it so nicely with all that detail. You can actually see the books.


This is how it looks in my Project Life album. I put it over the photo of my book haul. It is so pretty.


I used the heart on a 3×4 card in the album as an accent. I love how you can see it but also thru it so the lovely colors aren’t blocked out. I like how it softens the look. I put a sequin on top to hide a clue dot.  I will definitely be using it more. I can’t wait to try in on my cards for my shop.

If you haven’t used vellum with your Silhouette, I hope you give it a try too.

Here are additional resources and links to the use of vellum with the Silhouette:

Have a blessed day!
