Wedding Gift




A friend's daughter is getting married next week and I wanted to make them something for their wedding gift. So I decided to make them a 5x7 album to hold misc. wedding photos-and I used their wedding colors of white black and red. LOVE this color combo, so fun to work with!


I had the idea to bind some love and marriage quotes in with it-they are random throughout the book. At first I was going to do each page this way but then I thought just throughout would be fine. I did something different with this one-rather than using the O-wires for the Bind it All , I bound this with ribbon. It just seemed to fit perfectly with this book. This will hold around 26-28 4x6 photos. Its fairly thick so I thought a closure would be nice and added to the whole look of the album itself. I was undecided on the cover-the original plans I had just were not working out, so my dear friend Katie suggested a frame with a place for their picture or something. Ta-da!! there are pictures on their announcements so I used one of them-and it came out perfect! :)

THIS IS FAB! And those were my same color schemes, so I think I can agree when I say I LOVE working with them too!
