Scrapbooking - Parent's of the Bride Scrapbook Layout

My beautiful daughter got married back in September of this year and the two of us have been busy scrapbooking the memories from her wedding day. We are traditional scrapbookers who hate digital scrapbooking and still do it the classic way with paper and embellishments!

The layout we are featuring today is done in the 12" by 12" format and overall, it turned out really nicely. It only took an hour to complete and the entire page cost less than $2.50 to make. Frugal, yes!

The background is a piece of textured 12 x 12 cardstock in a dark turquoise color. On top of that is a sheet of scrapbooking paper measuring 11" by 11" in size. It is a Bohemian floral print done in muted turquoise, olive green, chocolate and off-white colors. We used chocolate brown ink and inked around the ages to give it a finished off look.

We used 2 horizontal photos and 1 vertical photo; all 3 were slightly cropped down and then matted onto chocolate brown cardstock with an 1/8" edge, matted again onto dark turquoise cardstock with a 3/16" edge. See photo for placement.

I used a Martha Stewart punch (scallop doily edge) to make the block for the title and used dark turquoise cardstock. The title block is in the lower right corner of the page. We used black self-adhesive alpha letters to spell out the title "Bride's Parents". Accented the title block with a white sheer ribbon bow with a pearl center.

To finish up the wedding scrapbooking page we used 3 word cut-outs with Mother, Father, Daughter spelled out on them (left-over from another paper project) and inked around the edges of each one with chocolate ink. A glue stick was then used to apply them to the page above the top photo on the left. We accented them with tiny white half pearls which were attached with mini glue dots. Finally, the bottom left photo and the top right photo were each accented with white sheer ribbon bows with pearl centers.

Overall, its a super quick, easy and pretty layout that doesn't have a lot of embellishments or clutter. We wanted the photos to speak for themselves with a bunch of added distractions.
