Families are forever with Chomas Creations embossing/scoring kit

For my next trick...
I wanted to see how it would look coloring embossed vellum with the Copic markers, so I gave it a shot! To get the look of the embossed title, you do need to flip it in Design Studio, or it will be facing the wrong way, because it looks better if you color the back side of the vellum. It seems with vellum you need to use a multi-cut of 2 with the Chomas Creations embossing kit for a more raised look. The embossed vellum shows up a lot better with a dark cardstock behind it, so I like to layer the vellum on top of any darker cardstock. Brads seem to be the best way to attach the vellum for me!

If there is one thing I don't have a lot of, it is family pictures, maybe because there are 6 of us! It is a very overwhelming task! This is a photo with my camera on a tripod, and with me and a remote control in hand, clicking it again and again and again! And out of about 30 shots, this was the best, even though one of my boys wasn't looking! Moral of the story? Get some photos with YOU in them, with your whole family in them! Kids grow too quick! So here is the finished layout!
