OK, it’s not your traditional wedding rehearsal, but this scrapbook layout is fun nonetheless, lol! With two weddings that summer, the old voiles came out for dress-ups to play brides. It would be another twenty-one years before the real thing for both of them, marrying within six months of each other.

We have suggestions for both digital and paper scrapbookers, and a couple of ‘how to make’s.

How To Make the ‘Pearls’

With the marquee tool in PSEĀ I made a circle 0.25 inches in size, filled it with white, then added the ‘wow-plastic white’ effect. I then reduced the shadow and the glow until I had what I wanted. Duplicate it as many times as required.

And if you prefer to buy …

How To make the scallop border

With the marquee tool I made six one inch circles, touching each other, merged them so I could work with them all at once, then with the lasso tool cut them in half. Working on a transparent background you see the checkered layer and can use it to line up everything and as your guide to cut straight lines.

Note: if you wish to color each scallop separately, then put each circle on a new layer, color each, line them up, and then merge the layers and proceed to cut it in half vertically. Using ctrl+j will put the half you cut off onto a new layer giving you an upper and lower scallop border. If you forget to put it on a new layer and delete it, you can simply rotate the scallop to get the same effect.

The scrapbook paper used on the layout is by Brandy Buffington.
