Hi, hi!! Sorry for the big gap in posts – my mojo has been totally MIA but I think it has returned in full force!! Today I am here to share with you some more pages from our wedding album!!
Also, I have managed to pull together my next post for Dusty Attic so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for that post coming in a couple of days too!!
So, the pages for our wedding album – 3 to be precise – 2 PL style and 1 12×12.
I shall show you them in chronological order from the day starting with the 1st PL style page – my ride and arriving and the venue.
I’m not certain that I have mentioned this before but I have pulled a kit together (many months ago now!!) from my stash, mostly papers but there are also stickers, a couple of alphas and some other random embellishments. I have used the 6×6 Maggie Holmes Flea Market paper pad for the most of the paper elements on this page 🙂 I pulled in a couple of small paper die cut doilies from stash and also some of those gorgeous floral pieces also from Maggie Holmes but this time, Open Book.
That strip of text is something I “created” myself. It was an idea I had in my head when I first started contemplating scrapping our wedding. It is actually the lyrics from the song I walked down the aisle to – Stand Inside Your Love by The Smashing Pumpkins. I simply typed it up and then had it printed on both A3 and A4 paper – just regular copy paper! You can see more on the next pages 😉
I don’t often get the chance to do filler cards in our annual PL album so jumped at the chance to do this one and make it so pretty ❤ Again, more papers and floral pieces from Maggie. And more of that text paper.
I love how this card turned out!! Also, that whole panel on the front flips open and I have used the space for some more personal journalling. Love all the pretty embellishments here!!
The flip side of this page protector is me and my girls walking the aisle 🙂
I have used the inspiration board from D-lish Scraps and actually started on the facing page – which is coming up 😉
Here is the PL style page
The black and white stripe is a piece of Heidi Swapp Colour Pop 12×12 that I have been hoarding – big time!! I just gutted a small piece from the 12×12 prior to adhering all the bits and pieces. I have used gelato’s in the background using the packaging smooshing technique – same on the facing page.
The washi, the sequins and those gorgeous diamond shaped wood pieces are also from D-lish Scraps. I just LOVE Amanda’s Just Add Paper Kits!! This months is sold out but so worth a look and the small price!!
Some alphas from my stash, some black stitching also to match the facing page and some Heidi Swapp colour shine in black, gold and pink.
And here is the facing 12×12 page and I gotta say, I LOVE how it turned out!!
Again, almost everything on this page is from the Just Add Paper kit!! The alphas and the tiny word stickers are from my stash.
You can see more of that DIY patterned paper in the background. The font is Manhatten Darling. I used some white gesso all around the edges to blend it out a bit as I had to chop it down a fair bit due to the borders I had to print with.
And here are a few close ups!
I had a real hard time trying to decide which photo to use so I made the photo a flip. Which left a heap of room for some journalling! Win, win! The top photo will hang out of the page protector but there are little magnets hidden behind the layers so that it doesn’t flap around too much!
So, that’s it for me for today! I have a heap of stuff on my desk (besides the mess!!) including my beautiful Documenting December kit that I cannot wait to start prepping some of my foundation pages! Look out for some posts coming soon!!
Happy scrapping and thanks so much for stopping by!!

GORGEOUS work. Welcome back mojo with a BANG:):) Loooove your little tricks, too, like the flip open pages & the magnet…..& I adore how you've written the words from the song idea, too:)
Just stunning Melinda. I absolutely love the idea of making papers from the song lyrics. Clever lady!! Really beautiful attention to detail on the pages.
