I love traditional scrapbooking but I won’t lie – I don’t scrapbook nearly as much as I should. Is it wrong to admit that my wedding album (project life style) is still incomplete! Yikes. I want to add so much to it that I get hung up on all the details.
Now think of having over 800 wedding photos and selecting just a few to create a traditional page about the “details”. Talk about hard!
Our wedding was an incredible time for my husband and I and a day that we will not soon forget. Chris went out of his way to make this day as special as possible for me. He had so many surprises the evening before and the day of our wedding. He is truly a romantic at heart and thinks of all the finer details. From his own custom made suit, to a custom tartan cloth with his pledge to me embroidered on it, to an antique Holy Bible that now sits on an old music stand at the foot of our bed. These are just a few of the surprises he had in store!
This page shares only a few of the details outside of the ones mentioned earlier. I am still working on ways to photograph scrapbook pages well. I have a 12″ x 12″ light box but that doesn’t help me when my page is 12 x 12. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them 🙂
We were fortunate to be able to use the 1939 Lincoln Limousine that had been used in the original Black Beauty movie. Chris’ family had been friends with the cars owner for well over 40 years. My oldest step-daughter designed all the floral arrangements. She hand made all the fake arrangements and ordered the fresh floral bouquets which include ostrich feathers. Since no one could see my shoes under my dress, I went with black shoes which featured a gold and rhinestone buckle.
Chris designed my wedding ring to fit against my engagement ring and we found a link ring for him. He was super thrilled as he had been looking for one for several years. The band is like a watch band with links all the way around.
I kept the colour palette as simple as possible. Black, white and Peek-A-Boo Peach. Using the Rose Wonder stamp set and the Rose Garden Framelits dies, I was able to add a pop of colour to the page. I used the retiring Decorative Label punch to punch out each of my letters from the Layered Letters stamp set.
TIP: Stamping with our foam ink pads on Whisper White, the ink stays wet long enough that you can add Clear Embossing Powder and heat set for a glossy appearance.
A few Basic Rhinestones here, a bit of Ruched ribbon there and this scrapbook page pulled together beautifully.
