After playing around for quite some time, I've learned how to plan out the layouts so that each two page spread is different than the others. Here are some examples from a wedding album I just did. The color scheme was orange and white and the look was to be a modern/clean finish.
I honestly was perplexed at how I could justify the invoice when I thought I was going to be limited to flat orange and flat white papers because nothing could be too girly.
After searching through multiple stores and playing with embossing folders and die cuts, I was able to create some pretty options.
This is what started with:
Here are some of my favorite layouts from the album. These layouts are pre-made and I assemble the album on-site (hence no photos or notes). Long strips mat the photo strips and the square strips mat the guests' notes.
I loved this leaf die cute....It was perfect for a clean, non-girly embellishment!
Even though I wasn't asked to help preserve the invitations, programs or menus, I knew they would start and finish up the album beautifully. The invites had these pretty orange branches with leaves (much like the die cut used in the image above). I'm pretty sure this pretty full leaf die cut will be used for future projects!
