Make use of a heart scrapbook layout as you begin creating your scrapbook. To design a stunning first layout, start looking for a solid background using a color from your wedding theme.
In the center of the layout, carefully cut out a heart so that the opening can be used to frame the photo. (You might want to cut a heart out of stock paper and trace around it.)

Stick a 5″ by 7″ wedding photo in the center of the layout. Take a second sheet of scrapbook paper. You can either choose a white or a pale version of your background paper. Design a border around all four sides using a heart-shaped puncher.
In the center of the spread, carefully cut out a large heart so that the opening may be used to frame the photo. (You might want to cut a heart out of stock paper and trace around it.)
Glue or tape the heart cutout to the background. Center a tiny bead or sequin in every other heart of the border. Using a thin white ribbon, design a border around the large heart.
At the top of the layout, put "Our Wedding Day". At the bottom of the spread, put the date. If you don't want to do the words free handed, type out the information on clear labels and adhere.

♥How to always have the perfect scrapbook layout for every occasion!
Mat each photo with black card stock. Trim each mat with a lacey white ribbon. Also, put black journal boxes and journal with a silver marker. Trim the journal boxes with a wedding ribbon as well. Embellish the scrapbook spread with white buttons, tiny white flowers, and/or white hearts.
For a clever wedding scrapbook layout of your wedding cake, enlarge a photo of your wedding cake and carefully cut around the cake. For a beautiful wedding topper, cut a photo of the bride and groom and place it on top of the cake.
In the bottom left and right corner of the spread, adhere two matted photos of the couple cutting the cake and feeding the cake to each other. Use a solid background style that matches one of the colors from the cake or the theme of the wedding and add a scalloped white border. Add your journal writing and you're done.
For a special wedding scrapbook, choose a simple background paper that is white/gray/black. For example, you might choose white paper that has "I love you" written across the page in rows of gray. Use the same background for each spread (the two side by side pages).
Most weddings have at least one color for the bride maids' dresses, but quite often two colors are used. Using the colors from your wedding, accent each scrapbook page by including the color(s) in your borders, mats, and embellishments. These accents will make the color from your photos really pop.

The next time you're at a craft store, you might find a brochure that features wedding albums and stunning relationship scrapbooking themes and templates. You can also check out a craft magazine. The important thing is that you create each page or spread it in a unique way that reflects your personality and style, but also honoring your special day every time you open your scrapbook.
Before you begin adhering items to your scrapbook pages, lay all photos and new embellishments first. Move things around until you're satisfied with how the scrapbook looks. Lastly, remember to keep your wedding scrapbook simple. Unlike a photo album, which is page after page filled with photos, your wedding scrapbook will highlight a handful of photos that you believe captures your special day. Go easy with the embellishments and keep your pages in sequence.
