How To Use Vellum!
Vellum is one of those incredible crafting mediums what when used properly can add so much to a simple layout or card.

Let me show you some of my tricks as well as a layout and card that came together super quickly using vellum!

Here are a few borders I’ve created to personalize the Forever Yours Fast2Fab Album I’m using. Something I love about making borders to decorate my pages is that they are so versatile: they work well on any style of page, from Fast2Fab to black to white.
