A Few Pages from my Vintage Style Wedding Photo Book

Now that Christmas is over, I can share some pages from the wedding photo book I made for everyone in my family last year as Christmas gifts!

One of my lovely sisters got married this summer, so I made these 8.5 x 11 hard-bound photo books from Snapfish. I kept the design very simple – no words needed, I just let the photos speak for themselves :).

My little guy got to be the ring bearer in this cool, vintage style wedding. I LOVED his little outfit: the newsboy hat, bow-tie and suspenders – how adorable!

I was happy to create the flower hair piece my niece wore as the flower girl – she looked beautiful :)! Instead of a pillow for Gabe to carry the rings with, we wrapped vintage poetry and music books together with some more of the flowers and some vintage lace and twine. The books were to represent the happy couple, whose college majors were Music and English :).

Even though Gabe gave himself a last minute haircut with his safety scissors, and shot up a couple of inches before I had a chance to buy him some new pants, I think he looked quite handsome that day – but I suppose I’m a bit partial ;). Julia looked super cute too, as always :)!

I thought this was an awesome idea for a vintage style wedding: a Polaroid guest “book”. Polaroids were taken of each guest for the bride and groom to cherish always. The wedding photographer also took several film photos using a vintage camera. It was a memorable day, for sure, and I’m so happy for my sister and her wonderful new husband :)!

Double Page Layout

The Prima design team members were challenged to create two-page layouts recently, here’s what I came up with – a couple of pages for my wedding scrapbook (yes, I’m still slooooowly working on it 5 years later LOL)! I guess these also qualify as faithbook pages because of the Bible verse I have included, which was incorporated into our wedding ceremony.

True Love Hybrid Scrapbooking Detail

Here’s a close-up of a hybrid scrapbooking technique I used on page one. I had printed out an 8.5″x11″ page with a Loft 18 Silhouette, merged with one of the Beautiful Day papers, and my Bible verse typed out along the side. Then, I used chalks and colored pencils to color it in, and added the Loft 18 flower to the coordinating spot on the Silhouette.

I used another hybrid technique on page 2: after printing out one of the So Flirty quick pages, I cut out one of the designs with a silhouette for a chipboard heart and added a bit of glitter glue to it. Then, in Photoshop, I added the word “Love” to one of the coordinating stickers from the So Flirty kit, printed it out onto the RFH sticker sheet, added it to the matching chipboard, and placed the matching epoxy sticker on top. Lastly, I placed my custom “Love” sticker right onto the spot on the silhouette!
