My Family Wedding Album(Heavy Pics)

Today I want to share an album I finally put together from my youngest Son and Daughter-in-laws wedding in January

 I started with this 12 x 12 ring bound album shell.
There was no way I could use just a plain shell like this so I set forth to decorate. The first step was to use batting on the front and back

 This is what the plain album looked like. I tried to move these pictures to the beginning but blogger wanted them right here.LOL
This shows a view of how I placed the book on the Upholstery fabric I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby.
The wedding colors were black and red and white.
Here is the front of the album with our family photo(one son is missing-he was in Afghanistan)
I hinged the front picture(An idea from Natasha) and placed a second picture of the couple releasing doves. It was one of my favorite parts of the ceremony.
The sentiment is from Sweet Stamps and worked this perfectly for my front cover. There is a doily from my stash and flowers and leaves from my stash. It was the same ones I used for their wedding things I made for them.
 Isn't this a great fabric for a cover?
I wanted to share what I did with the 300 photos I had made from the wedding.
These 6 pane sheets are from Close To My Heart.
I also wanted to share that I got a great deal on-line from Snapfish and was able to print all 300 pictures for $30.00 some dollars. Next time you are looking to print-do a search on-line for deals.
Thank you so much for popping in and taking the time to look at my family album.


  1. That came out great. Glad to know that every single photo doesn't have to be scrapbooked if it's in a gorgeous album like that.

  2. This is beautiful! I made one like this years ago as a gift to my MIL. I would love to make another. I use Snapfish too. Are you on their email list, they send awesome deals like penny prints!

  3. you should open a business! sheesh! is there anything you can't do?????

    yeah, sorry you missed my call to - LOL.

    hugs :)

  4. That is so awesome, how cool that you upholstered your own album and decorated it SO fabulous!

  5. WOW! That is gorgeous! Can you do a tutorial on how you did the fabric cover?
