Marriage Album

I totally admire the idea of keeping one's marriage album different from what is commonly available in the market. Simply putting photos together with no room to add your thoughts or stories is quite boring. Don't you agree? Well, recently I had a customer who wanted me to design a unique and beautiful marriage album that she wanted to gift her husband! So let's see how the pages turned out..

Album Cover


I started with the cover of a 9x9 cocoa album from Close to my Heart. The title uses color-ready alphabets that are inked in creme brulee and the red border is punched using Fiskars Threading Water border punch.

The entire album uses Key to my heart paper packet that is ideally suited for a romantic theme. For the 1st and 2nd page I have used flip flaps to make these pages interactive. It becomes easy to add more photos on a page while leaving enough room for journaling.

Almost everything used in making this album is sourced from Close to my heart. The stamps, paper, inks, accessories and most of the embellishments are from the same brand. Apart from the high quality of these products I love the various options it give me to use them.

Like in this page I have stamped two hearts on a piece of paper and cut them to make a nice cluster of embellishments. Simply add layers to make this pop up.

Here again the flip flaps are used to add more photos and/or journaling. The best part of using a flip flap is that you can replace the photo anytime you want as they are not stuck to your page.

On this page I have used hinges that do the same work as flip flaps except that they do not give flexibility to change photos.  Also, you have to be extra careful while attaching the brads otherwise the flap may not work.

I usually like to design a layout that has only 1 photo per page. This gives me the opportunity to decorate the rest of the page with many other accessories - like in this one I have used a series of patches adored with two ribbons across the page.

Pages 8 and 9 are way to simple and that's how I wanted it to be. Friendship alphabets used for the title steals the attention of the viewer and so does the beautiful white and yellow daises.

Now this is my favorite page as it turned out way better than I planned :) The cluster of heart, key and tag stands out on this page and defines the moment shared in this picture. The sepia look of the photo adds to charm and creates a nice combination for the page. 

Cheers,
