Better Late Than Never

Thirteen months later, I am finally putting together a wedding album. Trust me when I say that I am not lazy. 😉  I have large and small photos hanging through the house from our wedding day. I also have a photo book that I made on Snapfish that chronicles the whole day in photos. Despite all of that, I’ve wanted an album that would hold every single moment of the day we united as a family.0936 700_6601 - WEB ONLY.jpg

Every time I went to Target, Ross, TJ Maxx, and the like I’d look at the albums. The wedding albums are always silver and cheesy. Love quotes and a slot on the top for a photo. If this is you style then that’s great for you, however I’m simpler than that. So last month when I found a solid black album at Target I was ecstatic. Even better was that the pages inside are those single sticky sheet like albums from back in the day. They’re not as popular anymore.

Here is a picture of what I mean:

I get to arrange my photos however I like to. I also get to add the best wishes cards from the wedding in there. No this is not scrapbooking. I tried that years ago and realized it’s not for me. It’s too time consuming and I just don’t care for frilly stuff around my photos. Again, I like clean and simple.

On Pinterest I saw someone who used mod podge to put their wedding certificate on their initial. So that was my next step.

Lastly I applied the A to our album. Clean simple, and very much my style. Plus I was excited to have something to do with the marriage certificate. It’s a photocopy of the “pretty” certificate. The one you are given as a memento.

This sits in my living room and I’m quite pleased with it’s results.

  1. How did you decoupage the marriage certificate onto the letter? I'm trying to find instructions for that and I can't find them anywhere! Thanks 🙂 I love your idea, it's stunning.

  2. I photocopied our certificate and then used mod podge from a craft store to decoupage it on. There are some helpful DIY tutorials for decoupage all over the internet. I got the idea from Pinterest.
