Time Flies When You're Having Fun
Lil' Sis's Wedding Scrapbook

The albums are done! | Scrapbooking

Hello everyone!  I've been saying all last week that I'd make a post for the albums that I finished for all the bridesmaids and my sister.  Well...I finally had more than 30 seconds at one time to sit down, compile the pics I took to share with you, and write this post.

This will be a picture-heavy post, so bear with me if it takes a while to load.  I wanted the girls to have scrapbooks of the candid pics that were taken throughout the spring leading up to my sister's wedding, and not just have the formal pics that the photographer took the day of.  So, I took a bunch of pics that I took and that Hay took, and made these gems for all the girls --



These are the front covers for the three books for the bridesmaids.  Mine is "in progress."  You all know that means I'll get around to doing mine...sometime...soon....hopefully.  The most important thing to me was getting the albums done for the other girls and my sister before too much time passed from the wedding.  Since the wedding was in June, I'd say I made pretty good time putting all them together ;-)

I took these pics before I punched the holes for the binder rings, but I had Hay's & Maggie's flip from the top, and Erin's flips from the side.

They're all 6x6 in size.  I figured this would be the easiest for the bridesmaids' albums, since there were a lot of pictures, but not so many for each of them that necessitated an entire 12x12 format book.  Too much.

Also, while putting these together, then Rachel's, I discovered that I'm much better with scrapbooking on a smaller scale.  Sometimes that 12x12 layout size just is so....intimidating.  I had to embrace negative space, and realize that embellishments don't have to fill every last square inch.  It's so much easier to accept some empty space when it's smaller and doesn't seem overwhelmingly empty.  Does that make sense? 

Here are some snippy snaps of the insides of the bridesmaids' minis --

It's a little tough to tell, but since I was doing these in a 6x6 layout size, and I wanted to use a lot of the pictures in all the albums, I had them printed as wallet size.  All the pics on these two pages are 2x3in, so I was able to get a lot of pics in a small amount of space.  :-)

In addition to the 6x6 layout size, I also used some sizes that fit just the pic - I tried to use up some of the mat packs I had laying around, backed the pics, and then stuck them in the book.  That little guy in the middle there is a journaling tag that was the perfectamundo size for the little wallet I had leftover and couldn't figure out just where to put it.  {{lightbulb}} Phototag!!!!

Also.  Please disregard the piles of CRAP all over my project table.  I work in organized chaos.

You're over it.




That's right.  We were ninjas.  Bring it.


That's it, peeps!!  Didn't they turn out super cute?!?!

Obviously, these are not all the pics I scrapped for the girls, but I gave you a pretty good sample, I think :-)

Tomorrow, you'll get to see my sister's giant 12x12 album that I made for her....and I did something special with the actual album.  I hope you'll come back tomorrow to see how Rachel's scrapbook turned out!!!!!

Go forth and do something crafty on this lovely October day!!!

Much love ~~~~
