Wedding Mini Album

I have been busy making a wedding album for some young friends who got married in an English country garden style wedding last month. The base book is MDF that I picked up at a craft show in the NEC, so it is quite sturdy. I covered all the pages in variations of the wedding colours - lilac, green and white, and brushed all the edges with Martha Stewart pearl white acrylic paint. The letters on the front of the book were cut from Plantin Schoolbook on the cricut, and I tied ribbons and string onto the binding rings.......




their wedding ceremony page........





and a double page showing all the lovely little details from the wedding, the tiny banners pick up the theme of handmade banners at the wedding, and say 'it's all in the detail'.......


and a page showing the gorgeous country garden flower arrangements, I used Memory Box dies to dress it up, and the fence is by Martha Stewart

It kept me busy for quite a while, these books always take far longer to make than I plan for!


I am busy working on Halloween/Christmas cards for a magazine - difficult to get in the mood when it is 33 degrees outside (92 F). I tried a Christmas CD, but it sounded very silly to be crooning along to 'chestnuts roasting by an open fire' so now all my ghosts and spiders and santas are metaphorically wearing their flip flops!

Beautiful album Enfys - something to be treasured.

I have been very bad this year - no Christmas cards yet...I am slacking. Had you thought of some Australian Santa cards - I'm sure he would be wearing flip-flops and probably surfer shorts hehe

I haven't been following you as long as most on here, but I don't remember seeing any mini books or scrap pages on here before....yet wow! You did a wonderful job, Enfys! Will we see more in the near future? The pages were so detailed, I'm sure the couple will love this.

Lovely mini, they will treasure it, I'm sure!
They do always take longer than we expect don't they.
I've worked on a few Christmas cards recently and it does seem odd working on them with this lovely summery weather.
Funny thing, the other day I stopped at a Wendy's with my Mom to get her a burger after eye surgery. We were sitting there and suddenly I realized that the song playing was "Baby It's Cold Outside" What?! How did that get mixed in with the songs? We got quite a laugh out of that!
