Geek Lab – Printing Journaling in Vellum



Hello! Caroli here and today I want to talk about journaling.  For me, journaling is as important as pictures in a layout or mini album. I always need to include at least a short paragraph telling, what, where and when, that’s part of my memory keeping process.

Although I like my handwriting and most of the time I hand write my own journaling on my layouts and mini albums. Sometimes I feel that the printed look fits better for an specific project. But, what to do if you don’t have a 12″x 12″ printer? In my case, I use my regular printer and a sheet of plain vellum!

I simply use Word to create a text box and  type everything inside it, then I print a test on regular white paper just to confirm that the size of the box and letter is OK for the space I have in mind inside my project. Once I confirm the size is OK, I print the definitive journaling in vellum. It’s as simple as that!

Today I want to share this layout I made using this simple trick, I printed the journaling on vellum and I think it looks great, it adds to the clean look.


Loved the flairs created by talented Spanish designer LoraBailora specially for this kit, I used one so as to adhere the printed vellum to may layout.

As you know,  my mother tongue is not English but Spanish, and although I usually use English for the titles of my layouts, most of the time my journaling is in Spanish. Some may think that the mix of languages is weird, but it’s oh so natural for me. 🙂 What about you? Does this happen to you too?


I loved the butterfly paper included in the November kit, I cut it all! I used few of the butterflies here and folded them by the half so as to add more dimension to my layout. Also, the gold Thickers included on the add-ons were the perfect for the tittle.



Love how printed vellum looks and the whole look of my layout. 🙂 I hope you liked  this idea and give it a try. Thank you for your visit!! Have a lovely day!
