The Handmade Wedding

You've all seen by now all the handmade things the wedding brought along - now it's time to scrap about it all!

The sketch this week at Scrapbook Challenges made me so happy about sketches and scrapbooking. It was one of those moments when you've been waiting to scrap a certain idea or certain photos for a long time, and one day the answer just pops up.

The sketch looks like this:

And after I put my page together it looked like this:

Scrapbook Challenges sketch #285
What I used for this page: Doodlebug Love Potion patterned paper, Echo Park Style Essentials Upscale Black Quatrefoil and Grey Dots & Stripes patterned paper, Echo Park Happy Days patterned papers & alpha stickers, Rayher wooden hearts and bobbins, Toga chipboard alphas.

Quite to my surprise, I'm building up our wedding album pretty quickly. And it's looking pretty sweet.

Get over to Scrapbook Challenges for this sketch, and all of the March Madness going on this month. As ever, you could win something for your participation!


  1. I love the sketch, I think I might have to do some scrapping (about time!) I like the layout you have done, good way to use those wooden hearts, I wouldn't have thought about using more than 1 on a page. Love the bobbins too! but how do they work in the page protector and album? they are quite bulky.

  2. Very cool, love the heart garland! I wish I could flip through your wedding album when it's finished, it's going to be so cool!

  3. Its great idea. You share best sketches and scrap booking. Its looks so lovely and pretty. I like this image so much.

  4. I second Maggi!!! Love this page- the pattern mix is AWESOME!!!! Great idea to just use the alpha silhouettes too! I tagged you in a post today- it's not up right this second but it will be. :)
