Linette & Seth's Wedding Guest Book

Happy Thursday! This week has flown by amazingly fast, but that happens when I'm winding down from a trip AND also being called into work at the spa.

My husband and I just got back from a fantastic trip to Massachusetts for my sister-in-law's wedding. As a gift to her, I made their wedding guest book. As the wedding was 2-3 weeks away, I chose a template from the Heritage Makers template gallery, rather than starting from a blank canvas.

One thing I love about Studio is that everything is customizable! While I was hoping to make minimal changes to the chosen design, there ended up being a few, of course, but easy ones. The only time consuming element were the possibilities! ;-) The book turned out to be beautiful...

Take a look at where it started:

...and this was their final design:

*first page*

*left page*
a picture was taken of each individual/couple/family who signed the guest book. That pic will be inserted to the frame next to their sign-in.

*right page*

*back page*

*back cover*

TIP: If you plan on making a wedding guest book for yourself, or someone you love, be sure to purchase special pens for signing! For our own wedding, we used Slick Writers (ordered online from Jo-Ann Fabrics) ~ they dry quickly, so it won't smudge. We ended up having to visit a Jo-Ann Fabrics in Massachusetts last week because the bride was unable to before the wedding. Unfortunately, the store did not have Slick Writers, so we had to gamble on other brands. Gelly Rolls are NOT good (we learned the hard way :( )! We bought a second set, which worked MUCH better...and as soon as I find the pen, I'll let you know what it is... in the meantime, you can absolutely count on Slick Writers.
