We all love a good wedding! The ceremony, the tenderness, and the good times with good food and fun dancing. So it’s important that find a way to preserve these memories. If you’re a scrapper like I am, you and I both know that a scrapbook is the perfect way to do this.

But if your wedding was anything like mine, it’s probably left your bank account a little light. So now is the perfect time to get into cheap scrapbooking. This way you can have your wedding cake and eat it too! Some of the ideas I used were:

Ribbons

When you measure it out by the meter, ribbons gives you good value for money, something you really are looking for when try to save your pennies. It’s also a very versatile material to use in your scrapbook.

Whether you are using it as a border, to make a pattern or just to break up a blank section, it’s a great way to add some flair to your album while keeping within the theme.

Doily’s

If you have any old lace (or even paper) doileys that you aren’t using, then you have to put them in your scrapbook. They make a great backing for any wedding photos and add a real touch of class and charm. Alternatively you could also use it as a border for a page.

Pastels

These are my best kept secret. Simply by rubbing a pastel over a blank bit of paper and then smudging with your palm, you will get a beautiful cloudy look.

It really does look amazing, you have to try it to see for yourself. Since discovering this, I have used it in a number of scrapbooks. With a packet of chalk based pastels costing only a few dollars, it is one of my cornerstones for scrapbooking on a budget.

So there you have it, some quick and easy to follow tips on inexpensive scrapbooking for an album of your special day.

Good luck and happy scrapping.
