After a few weeks of hemming and hawing, I finally have my paper scheme set for the wedding scrapbook.
I know, I’m a weirdo – most scrapbookers really enjoy picking out new paper. This job was difficult because I wanted a consistent look through the entire scrapbook. Committing early to colors and fonts stressed me out!
I normally don’t use patterned paper, but it was necessary to bring interest to the pages since they would all be the same color scheme. After looking forever and almost giving up, I decided to order samples of SEI White Elegance that I saw Natalie using in her wedding scrapbook. I loved them! They are the perfect refined shimmery look I was going for.
I added some shimmery grey and pearl cardstock to act as supporting characters. Finally, I be using a bit of pink here and there. I know, it’s really pink but I’ll be using it sparingly as an accent.
The paper in the first picture is SEI White Elegance. In the second picture, the white and silver are Die Cuts with A View 8.5×11 shimmer cardstock. The pink is Bazzill Basics in Baby Pink Light.
Gorgeous!! Great choices (of course, I guess I’m slightly biased, haha!)
You deserve tons of credit for totally saving me on this one! I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t seen the paper on your page!
Yeah! So excited to see what you’ll be working with! 🙂 These papers are gorgeous. I love the shimmer. The colors are so pretty – that’s a great combo!
I think they’ll look even better when I start using them in layouts! it’s hard to photograph the shimmer and get it to look like it does in person.
Is the SEI White elegance for sale and is it available in silver? Thanks
The collection varies from silver designs on white paper to white designs on silver paper, each one is unique. You can get a variety pack from scrapbook.com here or buy individual pieces from the SEI website here. Good luck!
I am working on wedding programs, my colors are gray and pink so wanted to get pink and gray shimmer cardstock in bulk where did you buy yours?
The grey and pearl shimmer stock are from Die Cuts with a View. I got them from Scrapbook.com but after checking just now, it looks like they are only selling the variety pack of colors. The pink actually isn’t stock but rather pink shimmer envelopes that I cut up. You can read more about it here. If you are interested in the envelopes to cut up, let me know because I have a bunch of leftovers.
