Equels a wedding album with 107 cropped and scroapbooked pictures for my cousen and her new husband of there wedding from my views this past 6/7/08.
I am in NY and had non of my scrap booking supplies with me (they are home in GA). Bought a 20 page book with black pages, 2 sheets of wedding clear stickers (sayings) and 4oz of random pastel card stock 3x3 paper and a pair of scalloped edge sisers. Cost $60 after picture prints. After 4 hours of working on it all the pages are full.
I love the first 12 of the book they are the formal pages and out layouts (took me the most time) of the traditional wedding events. Then I have 5 pages of other parts of the wedding mostly dancing and party shots still scrap booked just more a relaxed feel to them. And the last 2 pages are more like collages. They are full of only smaller cut out shaped pictures no layout just page covering with arranged pictures, they are of the guest I know she will like to remember at the wedding, mostly head shots. Page 18 1 is of me and her in candid shots during the day I was her matron of honor and she is like a sister to me and I had a hard time not putting them all in so I just made a page dictated to us.
I love it but I hope her DH won't be upset that other then the formal shots his family is not represented to the extent mine is (my camera just did not point at them that day I guess) in the book. I am giving it to them tonight as a late wedding gift.
I also had all the prints put on CD's for them so they can see them uncropped or order more if they like, and have the 60 snap shots that I did not deam scrapbook worthy to hand them also.
So my plan is to give this to her and we got him a Irish cookbook ($6) and AAA pocket travel Ireland book ($9) to open as she is looking at the scrapbook. They are going to Ireland for honeymoon in 4 weeks.
Dose that sound like a good wedding gift? $75 spent on everything. I hope so, and it will give them some wedding pics to look at while they wait on the professional ones.
And can you believe I wrapped it all up before taking a pic to share with everyone!! OOps maybe after she opens it I can get some shots of the inside pages for you.
