Wedding Album Title Page


I like to have a lot of projects at one time, apparently, because I decided to go ahead and start on my wedding album even though I still have multiple other things in process.

I've been saving the Project Life Olive Edition for something special, and I am glad that I did. I think it is going to be perfect for my wedding book. I think that Olive is the prettiest edition there is, and I even have it in digital format too, because I love it that much. It is just so feminine and girly and beautiful. I also stocked up on a bunch of the paper when it was on sale awhile back, so I have plenty to play with for this album.

My plans for this album are to incorporate some special, focused, traditional 12x12 layouts along with pocket pages. I do have a professional wedding album made by my photographer, as well as a very formal scrapbook (as in, photos on photo mats arranged on a page...boring) I made after our wedding, both that include no journaling. I want this album to include details from the day, names of our guests, and I want to add some creativity to it. I want to take my time and play with the album and really make it mine. I am turning all of our photos into black & white as well, because I love how the Olive Edition will really pop against the black & white photos. 

Here is a look at my title page:


I chose three photos that I felt best represented our wedding as a whole - one of us in the top right, one of the full wedding party in the bottom left, and then one of us walking along the Las Vegas strip at night. Then I went to work adding cards and paper from the Olive Edition and items from my stash that coordinated.

My favorite pocket on this page is this one:


I took one of the Olive cards and layered it with half of a paper doily from Stampin' Up!. Then I added a "2" die cut from the 5th & Frolic line, along with a tiny pink heart button and a piece of flair. The flair is my design, from my cork circles set, but was made by The Flair Shop.

I added a "love" die cut from one of the cut files from the Silhouette store over the photo of us walking on the strip.


The letters in the bottom right pocket are from Heidi Swapp. I like that you can see the chevron paper through them. I use my Xyron sticker maker to attach them - it's clear adhesive so it doesn't show through the letters.

I am certainly excited to work more in this album but I want to pace myself. I think the reason I really like having a lot of different things to work on is so I don't grow bored. I can easily get burnt out working on one specific thing at a time, so I would prefer to just bounce around. I will share more of my album with you as I complete it.

Project Life is an amazing and simple scrapbooking system designed by Becky Higgins. For more information, please check out Becky's website. If you're new to the blog and you'd like to scroll back through my past few years doing Project Life, you can find all of my Project Life related posts here.  In 2014 I switched to digital Project Life, which you can find products for here.

  1. This is beautiful!

    I too have a formal professional wedding album and 2 other wedding scrapbooks but am thinking of taking the extra photos I have still laying around and doing a PL-style album but with more meaningful writing. Now that time has past (almost 12 years - eek!) I think it would be good to add perspective.

    Thanks for all your inspiration!

    1. Aw thank you! I love your pages as well, you inspire me too! :)

      And yeah, definitely something a little different about this album - can be creative and include journaling and notes that we didn't the first (few) times around. :)

  3. OOOOOHHHHH!!!! I really love this!!! I remember the day I found your blog and saw the LV pics from your wedding and swooned. Seriously, I was a little sad that we hadn't gotten married there, since I'd always wanted to. Just gorgeous!! Now that we're coming up on our 10th Anniversary, I wanted to renew our vows there. I don't know if we will get to or not, especially since we feel silly being there by ourselves without family or friends. But, we've thought about just getting dressed up and getting someone to take photos for us around the sights, LOL! :) I can't wait to see more pages as you complete them! :)

    1. That would be really cool! :) I think that would be nice. We just visited the Neon Museum, and you can arrange to have a photo shoot done there (I think you have to find your own photographer), if you're really into Vegas and vintage signs, that is perfect. I'll be posting my photos from our tour on the blog soon.

  4. Melissa, you are inspiring me to get my 2009 wedding scrapped. I just love that you turned your cork digital images into flair. If I bought your file, can I do the same? Because the Best.Day.Ever flair is so awesome.

    1. If you have a flair maker you can, of course. Or you could just show some love to The Flair Shop too :)
