How to make a wedding album – So many choices

I have gone back and forth so often that I hardly can remember what my first idea was. I have printed the photos in three sizes and non in the album size I finally decided on:)

I have all the photos printed in 4×6 in my Storage Album – thanks to Photo Freedom. A few is missing because I have made a few layouts since the wedding in 2008. If I need them I will reprint in my next order. I couldn`t decide on the size of the album. My first plan was to make an album in 8×8 so I printed all the photos in that size – before changing my plans to 12×12. It did cross my mind that a photo book would be perfect, but that was before I fell in love with this album…

I wanted different sizes of page protectors and I had to order from Scrapbook.com to get the type I wanted. Sometimes it is really difficult to get what you want in Norway…

 I spent a lot of time searching for the right paper. There were no color theme in the wedding except from the church where there was a lot of red, pink and blue. I did vision something white, pinkish and cute. Not so…

I fell in love and there was no way I could pass this line from Crate Paper. I`m so excited to work with this. The colors are strong but it might work since I plan to use only smaller pieces on every page. I think…

I am not big on embellishment and I hardly ever use flowers but a wedding album without flowers did sound a little dull so I did buy a few. Will I use them? Probably not but then I will have the pleasure of playing with them later. Always wanted to have flowers when I am inspired by Nic Howard’s beautiful layouts:) I have a back up of more flat stuff – more like my style…

It was a challenge to find cute embellish in the Norwegian online stores. It was a lot easier to find at Scrapbook.com but the shipping was raising for every piece I added. Raising a lot. It was like a robbery. It would be okay if the shipping was going up with the weight but it was moving up with the dollars spent (:

You never have enough letters:) I will go for the Prima letters. They are beautiful. Just perfect.

What else? Yes, cardstock. Orange Peel as always and I couldn`t resist the Pink Payslee`s Core Impression. Not sure if I need it for the wedding album but I have never seen them so I gave in…

Did I forget anything? Yes, I forgot ink pads and I forgot to order the basics like 12×12 page protectors. A great excuse to place another order:) At least I remembered the glue…

… and a little something to play with – right now:)

All I need now is a good plan for a 8,5 x 11 design using a totally different size…
