WOYWW #531

Happy Wednesday and Happy WOYWW! Today is the day we get to show off our desks, but I have something else to share this week.

I waited until today to post the video of the wedding album flip through. I love having a themed album project but I gotta tell ya, I'm really glad I'm done with it.

So, desk photo, but please enjoy the video!

A list of products that I used:
Paper Pad:  Pretty as a Poppy by Paper Studios (Hobby Lobby)
Cardstock: Bubblegum, Tin Pail, Whip Cream and Black Licorice from Fun Stampers Journey and Ballerina from Close To My Heart (CTMH)
Embellishments:  Tulle Blossoms, Bulleye, Spirals by Queen & Co. (I also used some pink pom pom flower things, but didn't keep the packet so don't have the name.)
Cricut Cuts:  The fancy cursive words (bride & groom, etc.) are from  Other fonts used are from the Nifty Fifties cartridge.  Flowers were from Cricut Design Space - many of them free.  Silhouettes are from Suburbia cartridge.
Other Cartridges Used:  Calligraphy Collection and Art Philosophy
Flip Flaps, Photo Overlays and Pocket Page Protectors are all from CTMH

I reference RTS Scrapbooking who is a YouTube channel that I follow and got many of my design ideas from.

Before I officially started the album, I made multiple "base" pages so I didn't have to start from scratch when I started adding photos & embellishments. That was a huge timesaver! I did the same thing when I made my other son's wedding album two years ago.

Another thing I did which I highly recommend is instead of printing all the photos 4x6, I went through and chose to print many in wallet size (2x3) and some even smaller than that. I allows more photos without the need for adding more pages. I also printed some in 5x7!

If you have any questions on what I did or where I purchased something, send me an email or leave a comment.

  1. Sorry Dorlene but the video doesn't seem to be working. It says video unavailable when I clicked on it. I like the idea of lots of different photo sizes though. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #10

  2. Dorlene are you teasing us? I can't access the video either. I will check back later to see it because I know it is going to beautiful!

    Happy WOYWW

  4. The album is stunning - love the consistent colour scheme and the 'tip ins' and different page sizes for variety. You really have made something very special. Take care and have a good week. With love & God Bless, Caro x #12

  5. The video worked ok for me! It was so interesting to see, such great pages and embellishments - you can see the love you put into it. Nice to hear your voice too!!

  6. Now that's strange because the video is working fine for me. Very sensible to plan the page backgrounds as I think this pulls the whole thing together and loving the way you've arranged the photographs too. Beautiful, well done. Wishing you a happy woyww, Angela x15x

  7. the album looks amazing, thanks for sharing! happy WOYWW Helen #2

  8. WOW! What an album! Such an act of love.

  9. Oh Dorlene, that's gorgeous! What a stunning album, such a great keepsake. I love the pink theme throughout, and all the hearts and butterflies surrounding the lovely happy photos. What a joyful day and how beautifully you have captured it!

    Thank you for your visit. So glad you liked my pantry - thanks for your kind words! It is now even more fully stocked and I've had to overflow elsewhere - it could do with being twice the size really. A couple of years ago we discovered dry rot under the old cupboard that was there, and it all had to be ripped out, so I got a proper little pantry made. It has made life so much easier in the kitchen and I absolutely love it! The jars with their labels remind me of an old-fashioned sweet shop.

    Thank you for your good wishes for my appointments tomorrow.

    Happy WOYWW,

  10. Don't apologise for not having a photo of your desk when you can share such a work of art as this album - via video! Great, enjoyed watching. A lovely change.
    Hugs, Neet 1 xx

  11. Your son and daughter-in-law's wedding album is lovely. Our youngest daughter is getting married in January, so this just triggered my creative juices. Happy belated WOYWW! #26

  12. Hi Darlene. The album is amazing! What a labour of love! Thank you for visiting, apologies for my late visit. I got delayed this week. Anne X @17
