GIU Day 1 All Because Two People Fell in Love

I'm the Growing in Unity Gal for this week with Unity Stamp Company and will be sharing a different project with you each day here on my blog. I will pick 2 winners on Friday that will have a chance to win some stamps from Unity. 

Here's my project for today:

I'm making a wedding scrapbook album for my sister and her husband. This is one of the pages I'm including in the album. First off the album is 8.5" x 11" so if I use 12" x 12" scrapbook paper I'm having to cut it down. This was 12" x 12" paper and I cut it down to 8.5" x 11". The patterned paper is from Craft Smith Love Story 12" x 12" Paper Pad. The photo mats are from DCWV Gilded Paper 12" x 12" Stack. The Unity stamp collection I used is Cherished Moments. I decided to mat the stamped images as well as the photo since I stamped the images on typing paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink and if I didn't you would see through the paper and not see the image/sentiments as well. I used NPW 50/50 Two-Tone Colored Pencils and a Gelly Roll Silver Metallic Pen to highlight the accents on the bride's dress and veil/crown. As you can tell in the picture of my sister- bride and brother-in-law- groom, the wedding had a beach theme. This was their table and I wish I could include the decorations on the other side of the table, but it's in another picture. I thought this stamp set fit well with this picture and the paper.

 That's all I have today, please leave me a comment and if you're not a follower I would love for you to become a follower. I always welcome new followers! Please make sure you come back tomorrow to see what I will be sharing. I plan to make this a fun week! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Great layout. I like that you matted the images even though they are not a rectangular shape. I haven't thought of that.

Very nice. I made two wedding scrapbook albums a couple years ago for two of my daughters. They got married within three weeks of each other. Glad to see you use stamps in scrapbooking. I have not done that yet.
