Vellum: Rainbow of Colored Vellum Layouts

My Rainbow Girl Layout
 by Jodi Wilton

Hi Doodlebug Fans! Jodi here today to share a fun layout tutorial on using Doodlebug's Sprinkle Vellum.  My favorite thing about Doodlebug's Vellum was of course the wide variety of Doodlebug's Rainbow Colors!  I wanted to use as much color on my layout that I could and keep the main focus on the vellum.  I decided to use six different colors and punched four hearts out of each of six colors I chose:

Next I arranged the hearts along with the three photos I chose on a piece of Lily White Cardstock:

I still thought the layout needed more, so I punched smaller hearts out to adhere on top of the larger hearts. To adhere them I folded the smaller hearts in half and added a small amount of Glossy Accents down the middle of the smaller hearts to give the heart more dimension when adhered to the layout. They should look like this:

After I added all the stickers (from Doodlebug's Spring Collection) and title (Simply Sweet Cardstock Stickers), but kept them to a minimum as I really wanted the Sprinkle Vellum Hearts to shine through on this layout!  Here is the final layout:

And some detailed shots:

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial today, and I hope the happy Doodlebug colors put a smile your face!  Thanks for letting me share my Rainbow Girl with you!

Summertime Vellum Layout
by Aimee Kidd

Hello Doodlebug friends! Aimee here with you today to show you my take on how to use that oh so delicious vellum from Doodlebug! I have this layout of my sweet girl in the pool with rays of colored sunshine. Let me get started explaining how this layout came together!

I used a sunray cut from the Silhouette Studio and saved the middle cuts to use as a guide so I would know where to cut out overlapping pieces of the vellum.

Once I had all of my pieces cut out I started adhering the vellum pieces to the back of my die cut. The entire sunray cut was measured to be 11 1/2". Then I adhered that piece to a sheet of 12 x 12 white cardstock so the vellum colors would shine through.

Once I had the main part of the layout completed I started decorating those beautiful rays of sunshine and around my photos! There are all types of matching embellishments from Doodlebug that were so much fun to use!

I also brought in pieces from other collections that were a perfect match! If you'll look closely you'll see pieces from Fruit Stand, Sugar Shoppe, and Springtime.

In this close up you'll see some of the staples of Doodlebug such as the buttons, Sprinkles, and the new washi tape that I used as additional sun rays!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you are enjoying all of the fun ways to add vellum to all of your scrappy projects!
