A little while ago I mentioned that I had started compiling my Wedding Album. I will openly admit that I’m not sticking completely to Stampin’ Up! products for this one, mainly because it’s such a big project and we don’t currently have any wedding themed Project Life kits, but I am using my Stampin’ Up! inks, some stamps, punches and odd bits and pieces.
I thought I would share with you today on my progress. My wedding was now over 12 months ago, and I was hoping to have it completed by now, but with one thing and another life has got in the way. Last month I took the opportunity to print all 711 wedding photos taken by our official photographer, I had them all printed in 6 x 4 size, although I knew some would need re-printing in a smaller format – I preferred to get them all printed first so I could work out exactly which photos I wanted to use. I’m using a Project Life base for my album, although I am adding traditional 12 x 12 scrapbook pages in too, and I’m thinking about maybe some A4 pages as well.
So, my album is coming along quite nicely. I started the album about 18 months ago (yes, before the wedding) to include some of the photographs we had taken at out Engagement shoot. I planned out my album carefully; choosing the classic Black binder from Stampin’ Up! and have both a pack of the Becky Higgins Project Life page protectors as well as the Stampin’ Up! branded ones, although I still need to grab a few more standard 12 x 12 page protectors for my traditional layouts.
Most of the Project Life cards I’m using for the PL sections of the album are from the (a think now retired) Wedding themed pack from Becky Higgins, as well as some cards from some other companies (like I said, I’m not sticky religiously to Stampin’ Up! here), but for the 12 x 12 pages I’m using a mixture of Stampin’ Up! stamps as well as some Patterned Paper collected over the years from various different places and companies. This particular page though is very Stampin’ Up! heavy.
The glitter paper is Silver Glimmer Paper from Stampin’ Up! while the stamped images are taken from Birthday Blossoms and are stamped in Elegant Eggplant. I just love this series of photo’s from our day, walking with my dad down the aisle, that middle picture makes me cry almost every single time I look at it!
I wish I could remember where these letters are from, but I have had them for so long I have no idea anymore. They probably came in a kit years ago, but which one and what brand I couldn’t say. The layout was completed with a scattering of Stampin’ Up! Metal Rimmed Pearls and and the date stamped on the Vellum tag.
I am really enjoying putting our Wedding album together, and I am sure I will be posting about it again once it is finished, anyone want a video walk-through once it’s finished?
