Custom Wedding Album

I am making a Custom Wedding Scrapbook as a gift for the happy couple. I used their beautiful invitation as inspiration for the entire book, which is 8x8.

Karen-Wedding-1I blurred some of the info out, which is why the invitation itself looks a little weird. If you click on this or any other photo, you can view it in a larger size.

I just love the simple botanicals and the subtle damask print in the background. You can see here that I added some Dew Drops with some Stickles for a touch of sparkle.

Because of the lovely damask, I decided to go with this print (from DCWV) on some of the pages. It works perfectly with the invitations. And I think the brown (taken from the invitation as well), makes the pages look rich.

Titles, especially on such a small scale can be really time consuming for me. So I was happy to find some great stickers from K & Co. that can be used throughout the album. Here are one of those stickers, which are layered beautifully, and have a bit of glitter on them. To enhance that sparkle, I used more Stickles on the background paper, to define the swirls a bit. I also added some pearls, inspired by the itty bitty ones on the sticker. The white cardstock (which will become a mat when a photo is added), has a hint of sparkle as well. You can see it better in the next photo.

You can see it just a bit in the bottom of the photo. Ignore the peach color…that’s just the color I photographed the pages on.

I just love making custom albums. They are the perfect gift for yourself, your family, or anyone really! I am hoping that I will get a couple more album orders in before the Holidays. If you are interested, please leave me a comment with your email address and I will get in touch with you. Have an inspiring day!

That looks great. I wish I could get back to scrap booking. I would rather make cards.

Lovely album! I really should scrapbook again. I told myself I would do one layout per week but I've not kept the promise to myself.

Congrats on the Bombshell DT!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…
