I thought the wedding scrapbook would come along faster than my college scrapbooks because I am using the same paper throughout the book. I thought wrong. The amount of hemming and hawing I did on this page made me realize how much pressure I’m putting on myself to make it perfect!
I’ve been waiting five years to start on this and want to get it right, but I think I’m going to need a healthy dose of reality soon and someone to smack me and tell me my design is fine.
Exhibit A – see below for the fifty bajillion options I came up with for the monogram and headline. We already had a monogram I designed for our wedding, but I
couldn’t leave well enough alone wanted something slightly different for this.
But let’s get on with it already. As usual, I printed a draft photo on low ink in black and white and used scrap/leftover paper to simulate what I wanted. I’m a visual learner, so I can’t commit to the design until I see it. I’m also cheap, so I can’t cut into paper I’ve spent money on until I’m committed to the design.
After all that drama (you probably think by now that this is a self-help blog), here is the final result! It may be hard to tell, but the photo is backed with a thin border of pink and then with silver cardstock. It may look like there’s a seam in the white backdrop because I have to scan the page in two parts and then sew the images together.
