Vellum is a translucent lightweight paper. Its terrific for matting photos, journaling and using with templates to create embellishments. Vellum is not as porous as your other scrapbooking papers, so adhesives and inks wont be absorbed as quickly. And because vellum paper is so transparent, most adhesives will show through. There is a special vellum adhesive that wont show through but you can also place the glue so its hidden under another element on the page or use brads to attach.
