Wedding Guest Book

So my sister. She is anything but traditional. So I’m not sure why it surprises me that I have somehow ended up making the guest book for her wedding. She didn’t want the traditional guest book.

I used flat 12×12 canvases for the front and back cover. Painted them then used Making Memories foam alphabet stamps to stamp the names and date. I designed the inside pages in photoshop. There are also pages inside for her showers and parties with a place for the guest to sign and for the gift they give. I worry that it’s a bit on the big side for this, but the 8×10 size was just too small.

 

Can you believe it?

I actually scrapbooked. I’ve had this page in some stage of completion for the past 2 weeks.  I know…I’m the queen of unfinished projects. It’s terrible really, but I shall not let myself stress about it.

This page is of our niece whose birthday is December 23rd. She’s a trooper about it though. Hubby’s family always ends up getting together for Christmas on her birthday for some reason so we always celebrate her birthday and of course there is always cake. These photos span 4 years. The color in the photo of the layout seems to be off a bit with the background surrounding the photos. It really is a red that’s closer to the polka dotted felt of the cupcake top.

And did you realize it was World Cardmaking Day? I didn’t either until I kept seeing it on a bunch of blogs. Luckily I had already planned to make some cards anyway. This first one is a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 square. I love how simple it is. And the last one is ultra simple as well. I just stamped the reindeer in pigment ink and heat embossed. I sponged the background with a blue ink then just added some ribbon. Thanks for looking!
