Hi everyone! I am here to share a wedding album that I was asked to create for a friend. Be sure to get comfy since this post is photo loaded. 😊 The requirements for this album it had to be at least 5″x7″, ten pages for a total of twenty pages front and back, be vintage and use the colors peach and gray.
Well, I had leftover peach cardstock from my son and daughter in law’s wedding but a lot of the cardstock had gold mixed in the design. So I, of course, had to make some trips to Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, etc. 😉 to find gray and peach cardstock and peach colored flowers.
Next I had to decide on what to create the cover out of and how thick the spine needed to be to hold all the embellishments and other goodies. I sure didn’t want the album to look like a “V” once I finished…I’ve created a few like that in the past since I didn’t allow for all the embellishments. 😒
After much thought I decided a three inch spine should be wide enough. I used an empty saltine box and cut down and scored to create a 5 1/2″x71/2″ for the front and back and the three inch spine. I covered the front and back with cardstock and the spine with five different types of lace.
The inside there are five signatures with two 5″x7″ pages per signature. I added a variety of patterned cardstock, diecuts and embellishments to each page. Through out the album is pockets,tags and pull outs for journaling or where more photos can be added.
I was also asked to somehow incorporate the wedding invitation into the album. I had to cut down the invitation since it was larger than the album but I was able to make it work by adding an open sided pocket to the inside cover.
The next several pages I am not going to add any comments so if you have any questions about how I create the album or what type of products where used please let me know.
