Here Comes the Bride

My sister, Stephanie, is getting married in October. Every couple of months a group of us rent the downstairs of a community centre and get together to scrapbook. We decided to surprise Stephanie with an 8x8 scrapbook album for her bridal shower pictures.

My job was to get Stephanie to leave around noon so that we could set up for her surprise. Luckily, Stephanie and I usually forget to bring something with us, so she wasn't suspicious that we forgot Stickles. She volunteered to go home and get them.

For the first page, I used the To Love and Cherish line from Imaginisce. I sprayed the paper with Tattered Angels Timeless Lilac glimmer mist. I used Bazzill cardstock for the photo mat and lettering. I cut out the lettering on my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge. The adorable bride is from C.C. Designs. I stamped her with Memento ink and coloured her with copics and her dress with a clear Spica gel pen to add a subtle sparkle. Finally, I added some lilac rhinestones.

For the two page layout, I used the Sophie line from Bo Bunny. The photo mats are from the same line and Bo Bunny double dot. I used Bo Bunny double dot ribbon. The sentiment and butterflies are from CTMH and are stamped with CTMH Twilight ink.

The album turned out beautifully and displays all of our different styles. All of the pages from the album are displayed on Donna's blog.

Truly, friends are the family that we choose for ourselves. :)


  1. I do love how your layouts turned out Caroline! My fave is the title page, it's perfect! It was a fun project to work on!

  2. Again, great minds think alike. Are you noticing a pattern with us? It still blows my mind that we both had the same idea with the same stamp and title for the title page. We are rubbing off on each other.

    Your pages are fabulous. I love how the glimmer mist changed the patterned paper on the title page to almost not be recognizable as to what line it was from. Great job!
