A Cake Story layout

Hi all, Grace here to share with you one of the layouts I made for CHA Winter....

A Cake Story
I love this page cause I was able to feature a lot of WorldWin Papers- Vellum, CutMates and Paper Layerz.

I had cut the flowers from my die cut machine (Cricut) and layered them. The Vellum adds soft touches to the layers.

I adhered them with foam adhesive so they'll have more dimension. I also curled the edges.

A quick title done by using printed journaling and vellum.

So there you have it. I hope you found some inspiration with my page today. Have a great day. Make sure you check out these products and all the other papers that WorldWin offers here.

Welcome to our new blog! We are just getting this started, so please bear with us. We plan on showcasing the awesome WorldWin Papers products, showing how to use them, examples and tutorials on different projects from the Design Team. We will also be showcasing projects from our customers as well! We hope you enjoy!

We're going to be doing some giveaways to launch the new blog soon, so we need you to tell all your friends. Check back on the blog later this week to see details!!!

With our first post we wanted to share a few DT projects using the WorldWin vellum. It's really versatile, and the thickness is perfect for any project, it doesn't curl and goes through most printers easily.

This first project, by Gini, shows how to add journaling by printing directly onto vellum. Here, she printed her wedding vows on the vellum, tore the edges and then inked them with Distress Ink. Notice the die cut border,underneath the journaling box, using the vellum, which creates a subtle pattern. She also added layers of vellum to her die-cut flowers to add a new texture.

This next project shows a technique using alcohol inks. Patti Hamil used several colors of Ranger alcohol ink and just dripped it onto the vellum, then used a heat gun to dry and spread it as well! Then just cut it into squares and use for your photo mat!

Here is a close-up.

Next we have a project done by Grace Tolman...
In this page, I wanted to show some great Vellum technique. I was inspired to make my scallop border on the bottom of my page with the sheer dance skirt my daughter in the photos. I spray misted the whole sheet of vellum, punched out one side of strips with scallop punch and then adhered them on top of each other. I also used the Vellum with my butterflies (also sprayed with yellow mist) and a strip to hold my title.

Here is a project by Heather Carpenter...

Here I have used Vellum to mat my photos and to use as an accent on my title letters. The Vellum cuts effortlessly when using punches or even an electronic diecut machine. I found out the heavier vellum worked better when using the electronic cutters.

Here is a closeup of the title. The vellum is used to outline the letters.

Don't forget to check back later this week for details of the giveaway. And if you have a WorldWin project that you would like to share, send it to phamil@live.com and we may feature it on our blog!
