I 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.
On 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.
I 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.

*Except for the part where I reprinted the text block three times because I didn’t like the way my signature turned out.
