Black and White Wedding Album for Really Reasonable Ribbon Black & White Challenge
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! There’s a brand new RRR challenge starting today. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create a project that only uses black & white plus ONE accent color. This was a tough challenge for me. I might have grown up with black & white TV, but I like to craft in technicolor! LOL But I dug deep into my stash and found some Bo Bunny Enchantment papers (retired, ancient history…but beautiful!) and I worked up a little black & white wedding album to share with you here today.
So, obviously, my accent color is gold. I used gold embossing powder on the edge of the front cover, and made gold flowers with a My Favorite Things Layered Rose Die. My ribbons are from the gorgeous July Ribbon Club assortment.
The chipboard album was one of those “almost finished” designs, so all I did was add beautiful ribbons and a few little extras to finish it off.
Each page has a different shape, which made it very fun to work with.
I paired up the beautiful sheer white with 4 satin stripes ribbon with the sheer black with 4 satin stripes ribbon to make all my bows in this album. I love how easy it is to work with this ribbon! It makes scrumptious bows!
Since gold was my other color, I topped all my ribbons with loopy bows made from metallic gold string. The metallic string comes in gold, silver and white iridescent. I use them a LOT because I love the little touch of shine they add to project.
I die cut gold doilies which can be used as photo frames. I made sure that all chipboard elements and ephemera are glued in such a way that a photo can be slipped underneath.
I used some vintage black and white photos to add a little pizazz to the interior of the album.
This really is all ready to go. Just load in your photos and voila! Instant album!

My Goodness!!! What a dazzling display of your artistic talents. I am so in awe of you Kathy. I’d have never been able to produce something with such taste, such style and such magic. Very, VERY well done.
This fabulous album is quite simply stunning.

The gold accents make the whole project! So beautiful and elegant…just like you!!! 😉
Kathy, I think one of the most exciting, but difficult, combinations of colours is black and white. However with your amazing ability to manipulate these colours the result is just beautiful. This design is really in touch with the retro wedding theme which is very popular in the UK at the moment. Xxxjen
What an elegant and gorgeous creation! I am in love with this album! My wedding was on New Year’s eve and so my colors were Black White and the accent color was red! It makes for stunning photos and worked really well as part of the decor! I love the gold with this classy, vintage design! Beautiful composition and creativity as always my friend!!
This is little album is very pretty and beautifully executed. Honestly, I love the color sense you have and miss it in this mini. I’m also not a real black and white fan. Everything else is spot on, however, it’s beautiful and the lucky recipient will love it!
Hi Kathy, this is truly a vintage card. well done…. Must tell you though that black at weddings always puzzle me, colors seem more appropriate with the beautiful white of the bride.
