Bride Book

I thought I knew who gave me the idea for this project, but I can't find the post on the message board. They made a name book for BRIDE and used a princess for the I. I scraplifted their idea with a different princess. If this was you, thanks so very much for sharing your idea.

My nephew (actually double cousin's son) got married a few weeks ago. As his beautiful bride is a fellow scrapbooker, I thought she would enjoy filling this book with memories.

Other than the parts on the princess, I used Bazzill for the the solid papers and Doodlebug Design for the pat
tern paper. Although it does not show well in the scan, the dress is a swirly textured paper and the necklace and crown a silvery vellum I bought at Hobby Lobby. Otherwise, the princess was made with Close to My Heart papers. The pages were made using George, Jasmine for the letters and Happily Ever After for the princess. I had a horrible time with some of those tiny pieces, so I ended up using my pens to make the eyes.

I hope Alaina enjoys it. I gave it to her with a few matching embellishments along with scraps of the paper used for matting, etc. Here's a scan showing all of the pages. And here's the
cut file for anyone interested.

Very nice. I made one from your cut file in Hunter Green and Creams colors. The Bride loved it.

Thank you for sharing.
