Seem like overkill? I don’t think so. I was determined to find a place for each piece of our invitation. That’s the entire point of having a wedding scrapbook as opposed to an album.
Yes, I could have tucked all the inserts inside the envelope on the first page. But I worked hard on them and want people to look at them. Plus, I don’t want them falling out years down the road and getting lost.
On the first page, I have the invitation itself with the inner envelope. This is where I ran into the issue of needing pink shimmer stock: the title simply didn’t look right without it.
On the second page, I included the outer envelope showing the return address along with maps I made. I used two copies of the map so I could show both sides. I wrote up a little blurb about making our invitations and the fun we had getting response cards in the mail.
The third page takes a bit of explaining. I kept all the response cards we received (I’m nerdy like that). I wanted to include some of them, but who to choose? I decided it would be nice to honor our grandparents.
And just like that, I’m three layouts into the new section!
