60th Wedding Anniversary Scrapbooking Ideas

Updated February 21, 2017

Celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of your loved ones with a handmade scrapbook project. Combine photos of the couple throughout their married life with family memories to make this treasure.

Gemstone and Color

The official gemstone to commemorate a 60th wedding anniversary is the diamond. The colour for this anniversary is diamond white.

The Scrapbook

Choose a scrapbook that is white or pale silver. A diamond pattern on the cover of the book makes a nice effect.

Paper

Look for paper that is all white with subtle diamond patterns, or speciality paper that sparkles. On small card stock or paper shapes, journal about the photos, then adhere them to the layouts.

Photos

Select 60 photos, beginning with a wedding day portrait if available. Show the couple with a growing family, home life and events through the 60 years of their marriage. Save a page for photos of the couple celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary.

Features

Create a special effects page with a photo of each member of the family mounted on the paper. Lay out the photos in a pattern of facets to symbolise the 60th anniversary diamond. Have the facets encircle a centre photo of the anniversary couple on their wedding day.

Anniversary Messages

Search for 60th anniversary prose, quotes and appropriate poetry to go on to the scrapbook pages. Save pages where each member of the family can add personal messages for the couple.
