Wedding Album – Part Two

Hey there :)
Today, as promised, I’ll show you the rest of the album from my last post.
Let’s start where we left off:

IMG_9164As you can see, I made a little banner using the fabric that also covers the outsides of the book. In between every page, there is some extra paper to account for the thickness of the photos that are going to be added to the album later. Thus, you avoid the spine being to thin and the book gaping wide open after filling it with your pictures.

The french newspaper lent itself perfectly for the occasion – the bride and groom had lived together in Paris for several years before they moved to Beijing later. On the left you can see a little pocket containing a tag for some secret journaling to be added. (Yes, the flower got a bit smashed, not a biggie.)

IMG_9170Stamping those butterflies and splattering Mr. Huey’s onto patterned paper produced some great results and was really fun. (Why yes, that ginormous splotch of pink was placed there intentionally, what did you think?!?!)

IMG_9176I don’t know if you know the feeling, but whenever I make an album for anyone, I’m always thinking: Ha, the whole paper-hoarding was good for something after all! :D (and therefore, I do not have “too much” paper, because duh! the next album could be needed really soon and then I’d better have all the supplies ready!)

IMG_9181 And the last page is mere embellishment (gotta have at least one of those, too!) and a little white tag in a glassine bag for the happy couple to include journaling about their special day.

Aaand that’s all :) Again, a huge “thank you” to Tara Anderson for that marvelous inspiration. So, let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see you here again next week!

Have yourself a lovely weekend!

  1. Wahoo! Ich habe erst bei Teil eins verstanden, dass das ja riesige 12×12 Layouts sind. Die mit den Embellishments ist natürlich meine Lieblingsseite :)

    • Nee 12×12 sind sie nicht ganz, ich glaube 8×8″. Und ich habe deine geniale Falttechnik benutzt, damit ich keine “Platzhalter”-Streifen einkleben musste, also müsste die Seite jeweils am Falz irgendwas zwischen 10 und 12 inch sein. :) Glad you like it!
