Some wedding layouts!!

Hello there and welcome to my blog!!

Today I am sharing some 12x12 LO's that I have recently put together of our wedding from 2008. Yup, only 7 years behind but I now feel confident enough to play with 12x12 layouts!! So all up there are 10 pages in our album and over the last month or so I have pulled 7 together!!

I will add here that a little while ago I pulled bits and pieces from my stash for a "wedding kit" which lives in it's own separate little box so I have some idea what I have to hand to work in with the colours that I have chosen - well the colours that our wedding used ;) Pink, grey/silver, black and white. My current style also begged to have a few pops of gold and teal thrown in!! And I am also more than happy to use other bits from stash. I used this video from Shimelle Laine as a guide to pulling a kit together if you are interested in pulling your own kit together for either a special occasion or just get your stash used!

I will share them in order of creation starting with this page I pulled together for a NSD challenge I participated in over at the Scrappy Canary VIP Lounge FB group.

This is a photo of my 2 beautiful niece's immediately after out ceremony sharing a little bonding moment as 2 cousins that had only met a few days prior.

And a couple of close ups

Next up is this layout that I scrap lifted from the amazingly talented Fiona Paltridge from this video on YouTube. This layout took me a few days to complete doing a bit here and bit there but I LOVE the way it turned out!! So happy with it!! 

This layout took me completely out of my comfort zone - so many new things to try but like I said, LOVE how it turned out!!

And a few close ups

Next up are 2 layouts I created on a scrapbooking retreat I recently went to. Both were for challenges - one was a kit challenge - full of delicious Bella Blvd Colour Chaos goodies and the other was a colour challenge. Again, I'm really very happy with how both of these turned out!!

Both of these were inspired, again, by Shimelle Laine - I just adore her style and her classes! The 1st was inspired by a class called Hitchhickers Guide to Scrapbooking and one of the "starting points" she talked about. This was the kit challenge.

And a few close ups

And the 2nd from retreat was inspired by this "Glitter Girl" (aka Shimelle Laine) video.

Again, I'm really happy with how this one turned out too!!

Here are a few close ups

I just adore that Charms Creation heart - simply beautiful!!

And onto the last 3 layouts which again, were inspired by Shimelle Laine - this time her brand new class Ready Steady Scrapbook. I will share these in class order - so class 1 will be 1st, class 2 2nd and class 3 3rd :)

And a couple of close ups

Class 2

And some close ups

And class 3

And I think this is my most fave of the 3 from the class! I love, love, love that the design is so simple and that those beautiful papers that I was "saving for that special page" are totally on display and used!!

A few close up's of this one too and I'm done!!

So, that is it for me for today!!

I hope you have liked seeing what I have been working on and now our album is starting to look a bit more full!!

If you are looking for some fun and easy classes I honestly cannot recommend Shimelle's classes highly enough!! Full of great information and lots and lots of ideas!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy scrapping!!
