Scrapbook Layout 4: Wedding

Here is a 1 page layout using DCWV's Luxury Stack; it is a stack with a shimmery design....probably not a stack I would use on a regular basis, but it is definitely a stack that's appropriate for a wedding layout.  I wanted to keep a neutral wedding theme, in order for it to be versatile to any wedding couple, so I decided on a "white" theme with a slight black outline throughout the layout. 

The tear bears, doves, and church were all hand-made.  I had a little trouble when making the satin dress; the satin bow kept popping up, so I had to hand-stitch the dress in order to keep it down.  Notice the pearl earrings on the bride?  This was a special gift for someone, so real pearls were used.

Church paper piecing
It is better to use a less stiff cardstock since there are so many layers; if the cardstock is too thick, it could curl.

Bride and groom
I forgot to give the bride a bouquet when I took this picture.

I gave her a bouquet later, but unfortunately, I did not have the right lighting for a good clear picture.

The bowtie was made with ribbon, and for the buttons, actual buttons were glued to his shirt; the gray cummerbund gave it a nice color and texture contrast. 


Photo mat 1
Since this was a wedding layout, I used a lacey trim stitching for the mat.

File tag
This may be my favorite thing out of the layout; it has such a nice clean look.
