TIP: As much as I love vellum, I've also learned that it can be quite fiddly to use with punches so after much trial and error and a bit of hair pulling I realized that it's easier to place a piece of copy paper behind the vellum before you punch out your shape. Believe me, it gives the cleanest cut and the vellum doesn't get stuck in your punch.
And now for something new... Doodlebug Pixies and Sprinkles! *Sigh*
I wanted to have a subtle frame behind my photographs so I created two stitched circles on my layout using a stitching template as a guide.
I then cut varying lengths of the pixie sticks, added a small amount of adhesive to the back and then stitched then into place randomly around the circles.
Lastly to finish my layout I added a few hand embossed polka dots by simply turning my layout over and placing an open embossing folder under my layout and using an embossing tool to create the dots.
