A Young Fun Wedding Album

I thought I would show you the Wedding Album I made for my best friends daughter. It went together pretty quick I didn't do a lot of stamping in it, instead I ended up using some stickers and pattern paper. (I know shock... the stickers were cute and matched the paper and I was running out of time)


The base of the album is a 7 gypsies chipboard album, I took it apart and covered the outside and inside of the chipboard. I stamped Wedding Bella couple and used my pencils and mineral spirits to color. Now how clever was it that the words "Our Wedding" centered on the front...yea uhhh I planned that! Really it just worked out that way... too funny especially the day before the shower at 11 pm. I doodled the edges of the bella couple, and added some hot pink Prima flowers and black brads.


On each of the inside pages, that ended up being many more than I thought, I used hot pink and gray Bazzill card stock and my new Fiskar's Corner/Border punch to make a base for each page, then the stickers to decorate a corner of each page. I was really short on time and I think it ended up cute. Especially after I tied a few ribbons on the spiral. Some of the other pages were for the bridesmaids/maid of honor, groomsman/best man, the cake, the kiss... you get the idea. Just a FYI... one of her colors for the wedding is hot pink.... so I didn't just grab that color out of the air. And being she is young I think it is fun for her.




I also made a matching card with some of the scraps of pattern paper and another Bella couple image. I added two Fiskar Punch heart.
BTW - I think the shower went pretty well, she had quite a few friends and family there... Hugs, food, cake and presents.
Today should be fun... I am going shopping with my Mom and Sister! Just some chatting, shopping and of course a break for a nice lunch somewhere... I am getting hungry for Chinese (hubby hates it so I try and get it when he isn't with me) Wonder if I can talk them into it? Anyway, I don't get to do many things like this with them. Schedules and kids don't always match up, and today worked out so I am looking forward to it! Hope you have a great Monday and have some time to craft today!
HUGS and-

Love the wedding book. Any new bride would be thrilled to get it. Have fun with your Mom and sister. I would vote for the chinese also. My hubby doesnt like it so I get it about twice a year when he is out of town.
