Engaged Scrapbook Page

Today I am sharing Page 2 in Andy & Ashley's Wedding scrapbook focusing on their engagement.  I saw a really pretty scrapbook  page and cased the design seen here.  Ashley finally chose her wedding colors and my page now incorporates those three colors, black, cream and shades of lavender. 
Here's the page I created:
This time, I printed out the photo, digital papers and used my cricut to cut the title letters.  I stamped the journal with PTI Happily Ever After stamp set and layered it all onto a 12 x 12 sheet of cream cardstock.  There is a zig-zag stitching on one of the  layers and a couple little embellishment that were diecut from silver cardstock using spellbinder dies. 

I want to tell you a little about this digital paper.  I found a digital paper pack I liked from Peppermint Creative that included all the black and cream papers, but the accent color was gold.  Here's the link.  Since Ashley chose lavender, I had to start looking for some papers that would compliment what I already had.  I found the neatest person, Marissa Hansen on Etsy who custom made 28 sheets of patterned papers, in the exact shades of light and dark lavender that Ashley wanted.  Thee are damask patterns, stripes, polka dots and even some custom wedding text paper.  She also made me some great distressed solid sheets that she custom matched to the tones of the original papers I was using.  All that for only $16 and she did it in less than 24 hours.   I can now print out as many pieces as I need to for the next year while I am working on this scrapbook.  I was pretty excited at that one.

They look adorable, both have beautiful eyes! The page looks great I love the layout,print, and you even sewed . I used my cricut just yesterday for letters too. Now I still don't get digital papers do you just print them with the colored ink. Seems like you would go through a lot of ink fast. Beautiful page! This is going to be so nice!
