I don't know about you but I LOVE VELLUM!!!
It adds so much softness and dimension to any card, layout or papercraft project.
Here are some examples using various methods (don't forget to scroll to the bottom and watch my process video)
NUMBER 1: Cut with the Cricut
I used the Flower Market Cricut Collection and Vellum for the jar to add a softness, much like actual glass would (funny story...I took the time to cut those stems thinking the curved part of the glass was the FRONT of the jar but my hubby pointed out that he perceived it as the BACK of the jar...funny what your eyes will do...lol)
The bottom portion of this card was embossed with one of our Embossing Folders (retired) and then I added the Gerbera Daisy from the Flower Market Cricut Collection...I LOVE the softness!
NUMBER 3: ThinCuts
Use ThinCuts of various shapes to add subtle coordinating pieces to your layouts (you could also do this with cards)
NUMBER 4: Print on for journaling
I LOVE to use Vellum to print on...you can layer on top of some busy patterned paper to tone it down a bit OR you can layer over a photo, like I did here.

HAPPY MONDAY...make that the FIRST Monday in August!
Mondays mean a NEW H2H Challenge is this one is all about THIS photo...
Here's the card I made using similar colors, the 'splatter' at the top, sentiment at the bottom and image at the left side. I used the August SOTM - Floral Celebration and the Mix-In Collection...the sentiment is from the Always Loved stamp set (don't you just LOVE it)...
Here are some closeups...I used the backside of one of the smaller flower images to shade the middle of the flower then used my Clear Shimmer Brush to add some SHINE...
The sentiment on the inside is also from the Always Loved stamp set...the little flowers are from the SOTM.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you'll hop on over the H2H Challenge Blog and see what the other DT Members have to share. And...PLAY ALONG with us this month...you have until August 31st to link up your project using the photo above for inspiration!

How can it be AUGUST already!!! The ONLY good things about it being August is #1 we have a NEW SOTM (which is probably why you're here) and #2 CTMH Consultants get a preview of all the NEW PRODUCT coming September 1st (if you want a sneak peek, JOIN MY TEAM).
Here's a look at the Floral Celebrations SOTM which can be yours for only $5 with a qualifying purchase on my website! I am joining 18 other CTMH Consultants to bring you a round-robin blog hop featuring this ADORABLE stamp set!
If you've come from Jen's Blog, you're on the right track...keep on hopping around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME!
I chose to do a quick card that is as one-layer as I get...
Here's a closeup...
And, here's the inside...
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to visit everyone's blog and leave some love along the way. You're next stop is the front of the line - Wendy.
