first dance

The Big Shot dies are twice as versatile as you may think - cut out the shape, and you also have the negative to use as a frame. Perfect for this picture of the couple having their first dance. The butterflies are non-SU! - these were their place cards.

the bride

Jordan saved a button hole and pressed it, and really wanted to use it in the scrapbook. So we cut out a scallop envelope to sit it in.

Cutting the cake

The Big Shot came in handy again here - The frame around the photo is actually two top notes cout out and put together. The ribbon is non-SU! Such a simple layout, but I really like it.

We are family!

The obligatory group and family shots!
These pages are mirror images of each other, and were an easy way to keep the focus on the photos, as they were already quite busy.

With this ring...

Another total Jordan design. The sentiment uses three different stickers for the Sweet Nothings SSK all stacked on top of one another. The rings making the border are from the Occasionally stamp set.

mother of the groom

This is a direct CASE from the extremely talented Makeesha Byl - I just changed the hodge podge hardware for a heart punch with a sentiment from the SAB set Whimsical Words. who'd have thought flamingos would work on a wedding page??? Thanks, Mother of the Groom, for wearing a turquoise-y jacket! lol

here comes the bride

Finally, here comes the bride - this was taken from a long way away, so there was a lot of photo we didn't need, so when it was cut off, there was a lot of space on the page. Jordan decided we needed to use the big shot! This worked!!

for the girls

So the boys had trucks, the girls get swirls! This was one photo chopped into three and matted to make it a bit more fun!

Jordan designed this page all by herself. She decided it needed a manly feel to it, but mum wouldn't let her change the colours completely, so she raided my stamp sets to find something to make it less girly! Trucks are about as manly as you can get, but how to incorporate them into a wedding scrapbook??? Add love hearts of course!! The Loads of Love set has the hearts to be added to the back of the truck, so that was perfect! - Although Jordan did add dimension with some heart stickers of her own.

Products used: SSK Sweet Nothings, Loads of Love stamp set, I heart hearts stamp set, Full heart punch, three heart punch, silver brads, random heart stickers.

beautiful bride

The wording says it all. This layout uses the gorgeous medallion stamp to add a background without taking away from the picture. This scrapbook is 8x8, but most times I cheated and did a 6x6 and thens tuck it to the middle of the page!

Happy Scrapbooking Month!

May is Scrapbooking Month, and for me that is very scary!! I am NOT a scrapbooker, but recently had reason to become one very quickly!
My daughter's father got married and Jordan was a bridesmaid, and wanted to do a scrapbook for the couple as her wedding present to them.
"Mum, you have lots of stuff from Stampin' Up! You can help me and it will be fabulous!"
Well, much as I appreciate her (misplaced) absolute faith in my creative ability, I panicked, and of course that led to much blog surfing to find some help!
Eventually we settled on a Simply Scrappin' Kit (Sweet Nothings) and blissfully ignored the fact that it didn't go with their wedding colours (the bridesmaids wore black - we don't have black and white DSP - I would love some SU! if you are listening!!) - we figured dad would love it regardless, and if not - tough!!
So, please excuse the blur - some is on purpose to obscure faces - other times it is just coz I suck at taking photos, and I was in a particular hurry with this one!
This layout is taken from a UStamp online class I did - and was originally a digital scrap page. We just took the layout and re-created it in paper. The ribbon is not SU! but everything else is.
There were twenty pages in all - I'll share them all with you throughout this month.
