The versatile tri-shutter album!

Now that the lovely bride concerned has received her album, I can share another version of the tri- shutter album that we did at Christmas in July!

We received an invitation to the wedding of one of Roger's team way back in May - and the minute I opened the envelope and saw the beautiful dark purple ribbon on the front - I thought "Concord Crush!" (yes I KNOW I'm sad when I am thinking in SU colours when it comes to anything......) I thought then that one of these little albums would be a lovely little personal gift to Liza for asking us to share her big day on the 3rd July.

The next problem was just getting some decent photos of the happy couple on the day - a difficult task for someone not particularly close to either of them, but thanks to the huge photos my camera takes and editing software - I was able to get enough to make it so here it is.....

The front cover features 3 roses made from Concord Crush cardstock, and Elegant Eggplant DSP from the Regals stack. The main album is made with Concord Crush cardstock, the gorgeous shimmery white cardstock, and on the front cover - Concord Crush DSP from the Level 1 hostess gift paper pad. Add some vines cut from Old Olive cardstock, Concord Crush Ribbon and a couple of rhinestones and there we have it......

Open the front covers and you get.......

Photos of the happy couple just after the wedding, with the journalling blocks embellished with layered 5 petal flowers with rhinestone centres, and small photos of the gorgeous flower arrangements which decorated the Chuppah!

Open the centre out fully - and there are more photos - a large one of the couple cutting their cake, and two small ones of the Chuppah where Liza and Gavin were married, and the prayer shawl (belonging to Liza's late grandfather) which was hanging inside! An interesting fact the rabbi shared with us us was that Lisa and Gavin were the seventh couple to be married under it, as Liza's sister and cousins had also had it at their weddings!

It was a lovely day out for both of us - although we were roundly told off for leaving the reception early (at midnight!!!) - but Roger had to be up at 5:50am the next morning to go to work!!

I am in the process of making another one of these albums for the other wedding we went to last week - for Roger's cousin Charlotte - watch this space (Bashful Blue and Crumb Cake if you are interested!)!

The advantage of this little album is that the basic album is VERY quick and easy to run up so if you have a picture mate, and you know the colour scheme you can have one made up and just print off photos on the day and present it there and then!
