Scrapbook Layout: Wedding Scrapbook Intro Pages

Wedding Scrapbook Intro PageI finished my title page, but I wasn’t quite ready to dive right into the meat of this album.  Since the album will feature several sections, I needed a bit more of an intro.  If you’ve ever watched Jersey Shore, you can think of these pages as “the shirt before the shirt.”  I think I just outed myself there.

On the left page, I cropped and printed five long and narrow pictures from our wedding.  I backed them each on some pearl shimmer cardstock.

Wedding Scrapbook Intro PageSimple right?  Sort of.  Below is a picture of what really went on as I tried to pick which pictures to use:

Wedding Scrapbook Intro Page - ProgressOn the right page, I took inspiration from a scrapbook magazine that’s been sitting in my office for at least five years.  The focal point is a very casual picture of us when we escaped our wedding reception for a quiet moment alone.  I added another photo on the bottom left (whose significance I’ll explain later), and a piece of patterned paper on the upper left.

Wedding Scrapbook Intro PageI typed out some small intro-ish lines about the album and printed it on white cardstock.  Then I signed it and had the husband add his signature as well.  This may be my favorite part of the page!*  I added a flourish design I cut out with the Silhouette out of silver shimmer cardstock and some borders out of pearl shimmer cardstock.

  1. I love how you’re focusing on the photos and this special moment of your life. No crazy paper or embellishments here. Love it! I especially love the block of skinny cropped photos.

    • My general philosophy is to focus on photos and keepsakes, I think I’m taking simplicity to the Nth degree here! I think it will be more timeless though!

  2. Oh fun, I love the block of long and narrow photos. Both pages look awesome. Great close ups and detail shots! I love the flourish…making good use of the Silhouette, I see! 🙂

  3. This is great, Natalie! Oooh, your album is going be gorgeous….it is already. Oh, I am working on an anniversary album for my hubby. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!
