I have a friends wedding coming up in July. Ive made some projects in the past for the family as gifts. So when she got engaged almost two years ago she immediately asked me to do the cake and cupcakes for the wedding. I was so flattered and of course said yes. That date seemed ages ago! Now its only a short 2 weeks away. And stuff is falling into place. They also asked me to make a completely handmade custom wedding guest book for the reception. And do I ever love the way it turned out! Everything is going to be white and Tiffany blue. Great colors for cake and paper! I started with an 8×8 canvas 3 ring album. The texture on it is so simple and beautiful. I found perfectly matched card stock and cut it down to size. Double backed each page for durability and punched some holes in each page. For the title page I decided to use the invite for the wedding (it has a matching oversize envelope waiting in Calgary) It sets the elegance for the rest of the book.
For all the other pages of the book I used mini envelopes with matching slips to write well wishes for the happy couple. I love how simple the idea is, but how it looks finished has its own elegance. I cant wait to see it filled with everyones kind words. The last page is a special happily ever after for the Mr&Mrs to write a little something to each other!
I think I am so in love with it that I will be making a second one for the little mans’s baby shower in the fall!
