*sigh* i have had scrapbook block for probably close to 2 months now... i am working on my wedding book and i have run out of ideas. if i describe some of the pages i have left to do, could some of you give me some ideas? (my main colours are black, white, silver and purple, with lots of jewels, feathers, netting) i have to do my bouquet/shoes page, a page of a pic from mid-ceremony, a page of just me (the bride), a page for my son (ring bearer) a wedding party picture, and a few "party" pictures of the guests and such...

any ideas??

i am inspired by what you have started. I had my silver wedding 2 years ago and have just started my scrapbook page showing pix of the bride and groom decorated with bills and coins which totaled Pesos 25 Manila currency.

Sounds like royal colors. Is there a formal feel or a fun theme? for the shoes one I thought something fun...I have a stamp that says...with the right pair of shoes anything is possible{cinderella}. Don't stress just think about the story you want to tell. Someone told me that she journals first to inspire her. When in doubt scraplift!!! Or scrap with friends, that always helps to get a new pair of eyes looking at it. Most of all..HAVE FUN!!

It would be really pretty on the ring bearer page to add some gold embossing powder with some cool designs coming out of the side of the page. Then a black and white photo of the ring bearer holding the rings with the gold in the ring the only thing colored (you can do this at walmart photo center)

For your page, you could have your pic in the center with little paper arrows pointing all the way around you... write adjectives about yourself on each arrow.... title the page something about the same person become part of someone else? This would look especially cool with a creamy white piece of paper and silvery arrows with a black background around each one.

I didnt see this in any of the replies...so if its a duplicate I am sorry....

you can also do some pages in "Vintage" sounds like it might go well with your other pages....with the photos by yourselves....use some really tiny lace (Joanns has it for like 1.17 a yard) its beige, use versamark and stamp an image in the backround...gives the effect that it was once there.....on the page with the flowers....use ribbon (colors of flowers ) and a corsage pin....very popular and looks cute on a page...if you have a floral stamp or something do the versa mark thing to ....I love versamark...when in doubt you can always fall back on it.....also think about tearing your pages and using brown ink around the edges to give the worn tattered look....if you want more ideas...just ask!! I love to help where i can!!!

lol maybe prego brain is my excuse as well :)
i'm going to try some different layouts and such this week, and micheals is having a big scrapbook sale so i'm going to try and see if i can get some more "inspiration" lol
i do like the idea of the frame of feathers...i'll have to try it out.
and i'll see if i can get a pic of my "beautiful" embellishment up (check back tomorrow lol)
and i think i'm going to look to see if i can find a really nice photo corner to cover up the random hand...
i'll keep you all posted!

Thank you Sharon! Photo section, hmm... I'll have to figure out where that is :D



I agree with Sharon about covering up that lady standing next to you in your picture! I like the idea of using the feathers...I'd probably also try to incorporate your netting, can you take a pic of the embellishment you described? if you have a digital camera that is...



With your shoes, I'm not sure how I'd border it... depends on how you do the rest, of course all your pages don't have to look the same... I like the idea of using the feathers to border your pictures, in this one you can also try to find some huge jewels like on your shoes and use those to help accent this page! I like all the leaves around, maybe put this pic on a black glitter page? W/the multi colored feathers like in your bouquet, add some shiny jewels maybe boarder the page w/netting?



I love that picture of your son! Maybe try to make a frame using purple w/silver over the top so it's a little purple and a whole lot of silver (layered) If you use feathers, jewels, &/or netting in all of your pages I'd try to incorporate it here too, but probably not as much...



I'm not too sure about your intro page? I have trouble w/those :) Is that a napkin or invitation? You could put netting behind it maybe with some feathers? I also like Sharon's idea of using the same lettering all the way through!



You could do black glitter pages all the way through, it'd look good as a background for all of those pics! Good luck!!!

ok for your title page I was thinking of this kind of star? http://www.fotosearch.com/SUE104/bwbw022...



maybe cut them out of silver glitter paper?



When I'm stuck for ideas I take specific pictures to the store with me and lay them out on the HUGE array of papers the stores have and find one i like.



The one with you, you need some sort of embellishment to cover the hand in the corner, maybe an irregular frame? Like the one on my tinkerbell page but wavy, scalloped?



OOOORRRR out line it with purple feathers? If you lace them the quills won't show. OR you dip the quills in silver glitter glue and make the frame that way.



The one with your son (OMG he's so precious!!) have you tried turning it into a sepia tone? or B&W?



Your picture too would probably work as a black & white/grayscale whatever! It makes embellishments so much easier.



You can tie the whole book together by using the same font that is on your invitations....



The one with your bouquet & shoes is difficult for me because its a little busy with all the leaves and multiple colors, green grass, gold leaves, silver & purple bouquet and shoes.... lemme think about it, lol.



Definitely hit the scrapbook store and get some of the wedding stickers, oohhh yeah trailing ribbon, I love ribbon, trailing white twisted with purple and a tiny thin silver streamer of silver...



yeah yeah yeah 'um make a frame with the colored ribbons? twisted together, tied in a knot or bow in the corners to frame your invitations....?

I would do something fun with it. Party Party Party Just have fun with it. Just do not stress over it. Wedding sometimes are stressful. Use captions for the wedding people or friends in photos. Do purple words with silver background and jewels. you could do some words black.

Without seeing the items to which you describe it is difficult for me to figure out how to help you with this... :( With our wedding photos I used ribbons to make it look like those photo boards with the ribbons that cross and you stick pics in em... it was the same kind of ribbon used in our bouquets... I've yet to finish my wedding reception pages because there was a pair of pink sunglasses going around that i have like 5 or so ppl wearing that I need to make a pair of sunglasses for those pages :) So it would help to see what pics and items you want to use that way it'd be more personalized...
