Easter Baskets

Happy Saturday!  Missy here with you today.  The layout I'm sharing today was created a few weeks ago for a Throwback Thursday challenge over on our boards.  The challenge was to use a collection that is at least a year old, and use some vellum.  Vellum is definitely making a comeback.  I remember seeing it when I first started scrapping years ago, and I had no idea what it was for or how to use it.  You can do so much with it!

I used the very pretty & soft Sweet Day collection from Echo Park.  It's from 2012, but it's still gorgeous.  I decided to scrap some pictures of my girls with their Easter baskets.  I think the colors are perfect here.  I used vellum behind my patterned papers (I tore and inked the edges) and then I stamped hearts onto the vellum and embossed them with gold powder.  Then I cut them out and used them around the page.

I raised this cute sticker up with pop dots...I love that a little shadow is created underneath it.  You can really see the depth.

I popped up the banner, too, and added more thread.  I still love banners :)

A close up of the gold embossed hearts...this was so fun & easy to do!

I am just obsessed with gold these days!  I drew some circles with my gold pen and added some gold Color Shine drips.  

I hope this inspires you to get out the vellum and do something fun with it!  

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Missy :)
