Scrapbook Layout: Save the Date Layout

Save the Date scrapbook layoutThis is a pretty simple page but there’s a lot of purpose behind it.

It only hit me just now writing this post that this is a photo-less layout – just my Save the Date card and a story.  I really want to showcase the paper items from our wedding not just because I made them (okay, well maybe), but because they’re a part of our wedding story.  Wedding photo albums are great, but I don’t like the idea of my invitations and other things sitting in a box somewhere.

Our Save the Date was a postcard, so I glued two copies in order to show both sides.  I added a small story about how we picked our wedding date.

Save the Date scrapbook layoutI decided to stick with pink and grey for this one.  I cut the headline out with the Silhouette and decided to try Garamond italic for the date.  Note to self, don’t cut thin fonts out of thick cardstock with the Silhouette.  I just barely got this to work!

Save the Date scrapbook layoutSimple and understated is the name of the game as you know.  Success!

  1. Hi

    I am also in the process of doing my wedding album. I was married many many years ago – pre digital and pre scrapbooking. Th wedding photographer kept the negatives and kept it for 7 years for us to make reprints. So all I have now are the photos in the album. It is in one of those bad magnetic albums and I recently disassembled the thing and scrapbooked them all.

    I find it sooooooooo tedious. I basically have so little to say about the wedding. And then there were all these similar looking photos of the bride and groom. I did not want to add later journaliing about our lives together. After I said something about the few special details and why we chose the flowers we did there really was not much more to say. I am a heavy journaller on my pages and this really bugs me.

    Hope you enjoy the process more.

    • Hi Anne, I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy the process as much as you thought you would. That’s sort of what’s lighting a fire under me to get this done as quickly as possible – I’m worried that I’ll burn out or forget what to say or will have nothing to day. I suppose maybe there’s a window of time for this sort of thing?

  2. Looks great. I enjoy photoless pages just as much as pages with photos. I agree that the paper elements are better showcased in an album rather than sitting in a box. So glad you are back to creating after the holidays!

    • Thanks Tammy! I hope you are doing well! I did manage to get some creative time in during the holidays even though I thought it was impossible. I can’t wait to share the results!
