Engagement Photo Album

I really, really love my engagement photos, but I feared that if I just left them in a digital format they'd get lost in the hundreds of digital photos that I have. And I was certain that the digital photos would be nearly meaningless for our mothers, so I made us albums.

I wanted something a little nicer and more handmade than just a regular photo album that has clear plastic sleeves. I simply started with a few albums that I had picked up for super cheap when my local Pearl store went out of business. The albums came with white pages and clear plastic sleaves. I replaced all these pages with a black cardstock cut down to size. From there, it was super easy!
I printed a simple little title plate for the first page.
I got all of the photos printed from Kodak Gallery--matte with a white border.
And I used simple photo corners that I had picked up at Michael's. They're super cheap and super easy yet they make the photos look so classy.
Finally, I built a pocket from some scrapbook paper to hold a photo CD in the back of the album.




They turned out great and everyone loved them!

  2. Uber cute, I love how you did the CD holder too. I may have to copy that for my engagement pics and wedding pics books.

  3. Would you believe I haven't scrapbooked my wedding photos yet? They're still in a ziplock bag.
