Rustic Theme Wedding Album

One of my good friend was getting married. I have known her for almost 10 years, and was started as my sister's friend then become more like a family. Known her since she was in high school and now she was getting married!! Don't know where the time has gone to ?!?!?! Wanna give her something special that is not just a packet of money ( In asia, it's a custom to give packet of money as a wedding gift ).

Here it is a simple rustic wedding album. Actually this album is the second one I made, so please pardon the simplicity and yet I would like to share the thoughts and ideas I had. Made using Simple Stories Story of Us collection. The album was made from scratch using chipboard for each of the 6 pages. There's a frame that she can put her photo in. Burlap sheet to cover the spine with little charms of lock and a key hanging.

Some closer view on the flower details. I use the flower triplits from sizzix and die cut a few layer of cardstock, vellum and glitter paper. Then the centre I put glass beads. I suggest to use glossy accent rather than glue. It is super strong.

Here some of the pages I made. I just realise that I didn't take the every pages, so here a few only. The album already given out to her. This page I a bit of medium from Art Anthology to create a dimensional gold flourish background. I used it like a texture past over a flourish stencil. The color was great, but the downside is the finish surface is a bit tacky if I pressed it against the other page, like if I force them apart, some of the paper was torn n stick to the flourish. So I put flowers to create a gap between the page. Anyway, who doesn't love all these gorgeous flowers! Also you can see at the bottom, I scattered gold mica flakes.

 I made the banner with kraft paper and vellum. Very easy, just cut them rectangle and layer, hole punch them together, pull a string thru and voila, you have a banner. The little cute hydrangea flowers are from Martha Stuart punch. This punch is one of my favourite!! You will see more of these flowers in my future projects.

There you go. I hope my little project can share some inspiration to others. Thanks you for looking.
