Wedding days are exciting for brides and grooms, but being the reason for the celebration can make for a busy day! Everyone wants to speak to you, you have a million things to do and it’s usually tough to find the time to relax (some bridegrooms never even get to taste their own wedding cake!). Thankfully, with Ever After, you can create beautiful layouts that perfectly capture everything great about your wedding day. In today’s post, you’ll find instructions for creating a wedding-themed scrapbook layout that will take you right back to that special day — it’s almost like you can taste the cake and feel the rice shower!
What is it that’s so enchanting about weddings? Is it the atmosphere? The decorations? Everyone being all dressed up? Is it the fact that everyone is happy to be there? Whatever it is, weddings are always a great time, but despite how much fun they are to be an attendant, they’re so much more special to the bride and groom. Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life, which is why it’s important to preserve the memories properly. The new Ever After collection provides you with all the wedding scrapbook supplies you need to create stunning wedding-themed scrapbook layouts that will perfectly capture the essence of that special day. Take a look at this layout that shows you all the love that’s inside the Ever After collection!
Playing around with the new Circle Weave Border Maker Cartridge, I discovered it can create some versatile looks. I love how it plays off of the Lace Flower Chain and Chevron shapes, too. For these borders, I tried it out using several of my favorite Collections: Fall In, Fresh Picks, Cool Serenity and Natural Elegance Wedding.
I love it that I can create an entire scrapbook album in just a few hours with Creative Memories Fast2Fab Predesigned Albums. I just adhere my photos to the pages, add some journaling and that’s it! It’s great when I want to finish an album quickly. The cool thing is that there are coordinating embellishments, stickers and papers available when I want to dress my pages up. Today I’m going to share two scrapbook layouts from the Natural Elegance Fast2Fab album with you. One basic layout and one dressed up version.
Whether you are a simple scrapper, a pocket scrapper or a decorative scrapper, the beautiful Natural Elegance Collection will help you create gorgeous layouts that effortlessly highlight your wedding photos! I used the lovely papers, sticker, embellishments and slide-in cards from the collection with my own wedding photos to create an almost instant “naked” page on the beloved Black Scrapbook Pages, a slide-in page using the versatile Multi-Pocket Pages and a more traditional layout where I got to have fun with layering decorative papers & borders and making embellishments clusters.
With two weddings on my 2017 calendar, I’m already thinking about wedding shower gifts. My standard gift for a bride-to-be is a Creative Memories Fast2Fab album for the newlywed’s wedding and/or honeymoon photos. This time, though, I’m thinking of doing something a little different. Instead of handing each bride-to-be an unfinished scrapbook album, I plan to use their engagement photos to create the perfect wedding guest book. Creative Memories’ Natural Elegance Wedding Collection makes it so easy to create a guest book for your own wedding or to give as a gift. Here are a few page ideas to get you started:
For some folks, the thought of completing an entire scrapbook album can be overwhelming. Like, really overwhelming.
Enter the Fast2Fab Album. The hard work and planning is complete with these predesigned pages – simply add a little Tape Runner to your photos and in no time at all, you’ll have a completed photo album. See? Look how easy this looks:
In fact, to see for myself just how incredibly quick and easy creating one of these scrapbook albums really can be, I brought my personal wedding photos to the office and sat down this afternoon with the It’s A Love Thing Fast2Fab Album. It’s just a few hours later and not only do I now have a completed wedding album, I was able to get a tiny bit creative and added in some extra bonus fun things to some of my pages and photos, too. Oh, and by the way – you may notice that my wedding colors were charcoal and sunflower yellow. The fact that I had an outdoor wedding made this album with a green color focus the perfect choice for me! The way it complements the greenery in the photos is totally amazing. Click to read full post
