Doodlebug | Graduate's Getting Married

Monday, June 23, 2014

I recently created this pre-wedding mini album using Doodlebug's 'The Graduates' collection which was a bit left of centre from the product's intended theme but worked really well for what I was after. I just had to dodge any reference to graduation.

I have created a very glittery bridal diary for my niece who is getting married this coming August. After following her wedding Pinterest board I noticed she was pinning lots of chevron patterns, especially when glitter was involved.

The front was covered in the new Gold metallic sugar coated chevron patterns so I kept the embellishing to a minimum as I really wanted the photo and pattern to be the main focus.

Some pages are full of photos and romantic verses and other pages I've left relatively blank so my niece can add bits and pieces herself. Perhaps a note or two or maybe even a few photos along the way.

And... the new Sprinkles are not only super sweet but they are also perfect for using in a mini album because they are gently rounded and quite soft so won't scratch any photos on the opposite pages.

So many times we take photos of important events and post them onto Facebook so family and friends can stay in touch with our goings on. However, there are so many beautiful comments from people that never get seen or remembered by anyone other than ourselves because we don't usually print out our facebook posts. I've really started to think about this of late and have made it an important part of my scrapbooking to also capture those special 'social media' memories.

I am such a complete sequin 'junky'... I cannot get enough of them and fortunately I know my niece kinda 'digs' them as well. Lucky for both of us as Doodlebug have them in every shade of every colour possible.
