Hey everyone! Angela back with another fun scrapbook page. This month we are featuring white and ivory cardstock, and one of our themes for the month is Anniversaries- so I decided to make an anniversary scrapbook page and a little journal note to my husband for our 12th. This coming Sunday- August 15th, we will celebrate 12 years since we said I do in a little Chapel at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas surrounded by our family.
I began by cutting 2 pieces of cardstock to make my scrapbook layout base. I cut a piece of Classic Linen Cardstock in Solar White at 8″ x 8″. Next is a piece of Classic Linen Cardstock in Classic Natural White at 7 3/4″ x 7 3/4″. I inked both pages with Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Walnut Stain.
Next, I took one of my favorite wedding photos- which was 5″ x 7″. I then cut a piece of Black Basis Cardstock at 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ to mat my photo on.
Next, I adhered the photo to the mat. I love how the black pops against the white and off-white.
Next, I took some pattern paper from the Hello Life Paper Pack from La-La Land Crafts and cut a Large Stitched Tag (Die also from La-La Land Crafts). I love how this has the lines to be able to journal on.
Next, I cut a notebook top die from La-La Land Crafts from my off-white Linen cardstock.
I also cut a Postmark Die (also La-La Land Crafts). I love how it ties into mail and journaling but can also be romance and love. To make it pop, I cut a small circle in black to back the postmark.
My next step was inking my die cuts with the same distress ink.
I tucked my notebook edge border die in the top of the page behind my photo.
I also cut a Happy Present Die, 1 and 2 balloon dies (yep- you guessed it – La-La Land Crafts) and inked all of the dies up.
12 for 12 years together. You can tuck the balloon bottoms into the photo, and you would never know it was a balloon.
I added the Happy Present Die to the top of the layout.
And then added the 1 and 2 Balloons to the top. I decided to just use black as the accent color.
Next, I journaled my thoughts/feelings about our 12th anniversary.
And lastly, I added one more notebook top die to the bottom to add a bit more texture.
As I type this up, my husband texted to tell me to think about where I want to go to dinner this weekend, and even after 12 years (16 together), he still can make my heart flutter.
I hope that you enjoyed my anniversary scrapbook page layout! See you soon!
