Product Focus Week 13: Vellum


Welcome to this week's Product Focus." In these weekly blog posts, I'll share a scrapbooking product I'm particularly drawn to, and then share some ways I've used the product in a project. I'll point out tips and tricks for using the product, share some of my favorite products from that product line, and then I'll open it up for any questions you might have. I'd also love to hear your reviews or uses for the product I focus on each week. This is a chance for you to pull out products you already own and play with them or for you to discover new product you might not have yet tried.


This week I wanted to focus on a return of a trend: vellum. Several years ago, vellum items were all the rage. Then for a time you couldn't find vellum anywhere (except at office supply stores). Recently many manufacturers are bringing back the vellum trend from everything to full page patterned vellum, to die cut shapes, to so much more. This semi-transparent element is great for layering on your projects and super fun to use!


Here are a few of my favorite vellum products (click the photos for links to the products). You can also search by "vellum" in the 2Peas store to find additional pieces to use on your projects:





Below you will find a gallery of projects that use vellum in some way. Hopefully these will give you some new ideas for using numbers on your projects.

Vellum requires some adhesive strategy. Some ways I have attached a vellum item to my page is machine stitching, stapling, or glue dots placed strategically underneath a pattern on the vellum piece. If you have a question about vellum, please post it in the comments section below. I will answer any questions you might have.

  3. Actually, I'm thrilled to death to see a vellum come back because I have sheets and sheets of vellum in all colors and thicknesses....from the first go round! I love using it to tone down a busy patterned paper on layouts and cards. I also like stamping on it with white pigment ink to make my own patterned vellum. The only problem with it is the adhesive issue.
