Scrappy Sunday – Friend Layouts – Part Trois

Not a lot to say tonight as I am trying to keep these simple and it has been a very busy weekend.  I just wanted to share a few more friend layouts I did for my girlfriend Steph’s bachlorette weekend scrapbook.

 

It’s almost done!!!

 

Scrappy Sunday – Friends Layouts – Part Deux

These layouts are a continuation of my last Friends Layout post I did.  I started a scrapbook of my friend’s bachlorette and I was trying to get it done for the rehearsal dinner.  However, it is not looking good, haha.  I still have other wedding paper goodies to prepare so I likely won’t have time.

The first friends layout is for the Maid of Honour, it is a picture of them when they were in University, super cute and young.

I tried to keep the embelishments simple as I wanted the focus to more be on the picture and words.  I did make sure each page had some bling.  I am loving this orange trim from Webster’s Pages.

My next and last layout for today was mine.  I love adding red to black and white, it just pops.

A little shine and check out the awesome red trim.  The material is velvety and reminds me of a 70’s jumpsuit, so cool.

A good way to add visual balance is to have three points (in a triangular form) of visual interest or colour.  So, I added an embroidered little red bird to finish off the page.

Oh, oh, before I forget, I got my order from Dick Blick the other day.  Odd name, I know, hehe.  They have the most amazing variety of art supplies.  Felt like it was Christmas when I got it.  I am going to do a little video in the next couple of days to show you my stash.  You are going to be jealous, I am sure.

Scrappy Sunday on Monday – Friend Layouts

Hope everyone had a great Canada Day!!  I was lucky enough to be out at a cottage for a bachlorette for one of my bestest friends.  The weather was amazing.  My plan was to put together a scrapbook of the weekend so the bride could have a permanent keepsake with a ton of friend layouts.  First I must share a pick of the view from the deck of the cottage which was on Lac Sinclair.  Beautiful!!!

My idea for the book was that all the guests would write a little something for the bride, ie. favourite memory, qualities or words of advice and next to it I would put a picture of them from over the weekend. The first thing I did with the book was make a friend oriented title page (since this is what the whole theme of the weekend basically was).

I took all of the background pages from the same collection called “all dressed up” which was from DCVW.  The first layout was for the bride, but I still have yet to decide which picture to use as I got a few good ones.

The right side of the layout was for the venue, I inserted a picture of the cottage that the owner sent to us ahead of time.

The cool summer themed stickers are from Penny Black.  They are appropriately called “vintage friends”.  I totally love them and had been saving them for the perfect friend layouts.

Here is the ‘bride to be’ (looking adorable in the veil we made her wear) reading the Maid of Honour’s contribution to the book (with the MOH).

Now that the weekend is sadly over I have to sort through all of the awesome pictures and finish it.  Hopefully it will illicit more of such amazing emotions.  I shall keep you posted on my progress.
