Being the only scrapbooker of the family (besides my mom), I took on the task of putting together an album for my brother and sister-in-law, all about their wedding.
When I first saw this line, I knew it was absolutely perfect for my brother's wedding. The pictures, papers, embellishments seemed to be made for each other. I was in heaven. So many fun things to work with.
For this first page I used the Pocket Page Design 5. I had lots of vertical shots that needed to be included.
To start out I decided that this page really didn't need a title card, but simply some journaling surrounding the photos and to explain what was going on. These photos were taken at the hotel where we all stayed, the ceremony was held elsewhere.
There were so many fun cards to choose from but I narrowed it down to this card. I gave my Brother and Sister-in-law some "homework" to do and they provided the journaling for all of the cards on this layout. I finished it off with some great embellishments from The Story of Us collection.
I am always looking for different ways, techniques, ect. to add to my Life Documented layouts. This time I used vellum for a different and elegant look. Instead of printing off my picture on photo paper I printed it out on vellum. It is real easy to do and has a great, almost transparent, soft look. Here is a quick tip, rub a paper bag (for instance, a brown lunch bag) over the whole piece of vellum before printing. It makes the ink stick better.
After I had my picture printed out on the vellum, I added photo corners and placed on top of one of the SN@P! cuts that I had embellished.
I used some more vellum for this photo. I started out with a picture printed on photo paper on the bottom in color. I then turned the photo black and white and printed it again onto vellum. I wanted to make the people in the photo the focal point and so I punched a circle in the vellum photo to make them stand out.
Here are some more close ups.
I hope you have enjoyed this look at The Story Of Us. It is both beautiful, classy, and super fun to work with !
