Silver and Purple Wedding Mini Album

I went to a wedding this July. It was planned a long time ago. It seemed like we had forever to plan for it. It's amazing how time gets away from us! I started this wedding scrapbook mini album in April and finished it the day before the wedding in mid-July. LOVE how it turned out!

I sunk much of the time into coming up with the design. It uses my ribbon-slide binding, but I've modified it for stability so that the ribbon doesn't scrunch up. The wedding colours were silver and purple. The large flower on the cover came purple but all the rest were white and I coloured them with my Copic markers. I put two tones of glitter grey gears in there for a masculine touch.
This "mini" album is not very mini. The pages are 9 x 7 inches so that the couple can fit 4 x 6 photos in portrait or landscape orientation. The pages will fit 5 x 7 inch photos in portrait but landscape will only fit on the photo mat pullouts in each page and on the inside of the front and back covers.

Each page has a pocket flap (with a Kraft Tex hinge) and an inside pocket.

When you open the flap, there's an inside pocket with a large photo mat.

There's a total of 5 pages. If only 1 photo goes on each page (since you can fit two 4 x 6 photos in landscape on some), the album holds 37, 4 x 6 photos.

I did a lot of stamping, die cutting and heat embossing on this album. I wasn't there for the gift opening, so I hope the groom and bride really liked it. I included some "his and hers" tags in hopes that they would both capture some memories together in it. The couple waited a very long time to find this happiness, so it was a very special wedding.

The album looks much better in real life, but the closest I can get you to it is a video walk-through! Hop over to my Vimeo channel to see this wedding scrapbook mini album in action!


  1. Hey!! I just loved this mini wedding album. It’s amazing. Last month my friend got married at one of Seattle venues and was very happy to see her beautiful wedding pictures that her photographer clicked. I also loved them and going to hire him only for my day also.

  2. Hi I love this album...have to make a wedding album for a friend and these are exactly the colours fornher wedding..what paper pack did you use.

    1. Thank-you! Most of the papers were loose stock from Michaels. Some of the black and white was a B&W 8.5x11 single sided patterned cardstock pack from Michaels.
