This month myself Lisa, Ashley, Sharmaine, Jody, Emily, Alissa, and Denise have all teamed up together to show you how we’ve used the little glassine envelopes that come in some of your kits. You know the ones that you often find in your main kit with the little bits inside? They are so cute, so we thought we’d get together and show you some different ways on how to make the most out of this little envelope.
Lets start with Ashley. She made this lay out this month and used the envelope for her title work.
Ashley says, ”I used a glassine envelope for my title. I stamped using the Nate Basics alpha in Versamark, then embossed with Gold glitter finish Zing embossing powder. This is a fun way to add a title to a layout, because the translucent glassine adds a base to provide some definition between the letters and the background, but doesn’t break up the background design too much. I did something similar using vellum and letter stickers from my layout last month, Seriously the cutest hands all of the time.
Sharmaine’s layout is so sweet. She filled her envelope with the little cameras cut from the ‘Snapshots’ paper and a handful of gold glitter.
Jody added her’s to a mini book using the leftovers from last month’s kit.
Yes, that really is adorable!
Emily also made a layout.
Emily says, “I used my glassine much like Ashley, as a house for the title and part of the journaling. But I ripped the bag in half, so it was one layer. This made it a bit more transparent and could overlap the photo without losing it.”
Here’s my layout. I used my glassine envelope for my hidden journaling.
I love the fact that you can see the journaling through the frosted envelope, but because it’s frosted you can’t quite read it so therefore it doesn’t become the focal point of the layout. The photos do, but the story can easily still be read by taking out the card.
Alissa used the envelopes on this mini book.
and the reverse.
Alissa says, “I taped 2 bags together and filled them each with gold and silver sequins for the cover of this mini. Adding the rest of the pages was super easy using clear tape.”
And finally we have our Denise with this happy layout.
Denise has used her glassine envelope as part of her layers here. There is some hidden journaling on the sunburst card inside the envelope.
We hope you love how we’ve used our glassine envelopes this month. We’d love to see how you have used your’s too. Please do come and leave us a link to your gallery.
Thanks for stopping by today.
