Creative Gift # 6: Wedding and Honeymoon Scrapbook

This one isn’t as inexpensive as the other creative gifts can be unless you already have wedding and honeymoon themed scrapbooking items on hand, but it is a hit for the folks receiving the scrapbook. The example pages I share are from a book I created for my parents. I first did 15 pages of wedding day photos and then I did 20 pages of their honeymoon. Since it was for many decades later, I also included what the spots looked like now, as The Berlin Wall is no longer up and one of the empty fields is now a major headquarters skyscraper! I can’t share a lot of pics due to privacy, but I shared the ones that didn’t have personal pictures.

What You Will Need

  • Pictures from the persons wedding and honeymoon
  • Scrabooking items – embellishments, stickers, ribbon
  • 10 – 30 scrapbooking page holders
  • 10 – 30 scrapbooking pages
  • Stories from guests, locations, songs
  • Anything else you can think of that will make the album special.
    • I used the internet to learn about what places looked like today
    • I spoke with guests from the wedding to get memories
    • I included pictures that represented the most special moments

 

What You Will Do

  • Create!
  • Use your creativity to layout the photos, share the stories, and convey the special moments. There is no right or wrong way to do this! Just have fun.
  • Add a few drops of Oola Fun, Sacred Mountain, or Rosemary and Christmas Spirit into the diffuser to keep inspiration up.

  1. Such a cool idea! My sister makes scrapbooks online and has them printed by…someone. I can’t remember the website now. She gives them out to the family, so I have a collection of books for things like my nieces’ first years, family birthdays over the years, etc. They’re amazing!

    1. That’s an awesome idea! I never knew there were online scrapbooks. That would probably be really good for someone with limited time or space too!
