We Do! - The Story Of Us






Today I am sharing the third page of my wedding themed pocket page spread using Simple Stories The Story Of Us collection for The Scrapbook Store.



This time I have used Sn@p! Pocket Pages Design 7, which has a long 6x12 pocket on one side. I think I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that I really enjoy the larger pockets since they totally indulge my love for traditional scrapping, yet still have that great pocket page look. 



I've used lots of our wedding photos in this one to help tell the story - standing at the alter saying "I do", walking out of the church after the ceremony, the groomsmen, our rings and of course a more formal photo of our wedding party.



I'm really loving how this is turning out. I have our photographs in a professional wedding album which I treasure, but I am really taken with putting these pages together in a less formal way. It also means that the girls will each have their own collection of their parents wedding photos. I may have to do another!



By pure coincidence, Simon and I celebrate our wedding anniversary this month so it's perfectly fitting to be sorting through these memories right now.

Pocket Page Scrapbooking - Beautiful Memories








Today I want to share a second pocket page style layout for The Scrapbook Store featuring Simple Stories The Story Of Us collection.



I've used the reverse side of Sn@p! Pocket Pages Design 9 - the front and title page can be found in my previous post here, which has a long pocket across the top. I really like this style as it appeals to my traditional scrapbooking side where I can create something freestyle in these large pockets. On this page I've simply added some torn paper layers along with a couple of photographs, added a subtitle and a few small embellishments along with some torn washi tape - not unlike how I would approach a traditional 12x12 layout. The only real difference is the size.



Beneath the long pocket I've then just gone ahead adding a variety of patterned papers from The Story Of Us collection, trimming them to fit my pockets and adding a few of the Sn@p! Cards and Sn@p! Cuts along the bottom row.



To complete the look I've layered stickers, alpha stickers and other elements from this collection along with a touch of doodling for a personalised look.



Thanks for calling in again - more pages in this series to come!

Pocket Page Scrapbooking, Wedding Style





This month for The Scrapbook Store I am working with the brand new Simple Stories collection, The Story Of Us. So instead of creating another set of layouts I thought I might document our wedding day pocket page style.



I chose a Simple Stories Design 9 Pocket Page for my base because I wanted to use a large photograph of our hands as a title, adding embellishments either side for some colour and create a sense of focus on my wedding rings. Even with a bit of blur in my photograph it still works really well as a title and begins to tell the story.

 

I've included a couple of photographs - one of the priest who married us and another of the outside of the church we were married in along with a few details about our big day.



To add a little something extra I've used a variety of coordinating washi tapes from my stash as well as a few scattered stickers, ephemera pieces, enamel dots and sequins. I've also added a little doodling here and there to help finish the whole thing off.



Thanks for dropping in, I have a few more pages to share to follow on from this one over the coming week. 



Enjoy your day!
