I’m the lucky duck who got to abandon all my duties and go to my cousin’s wedding. Thanks to Chris for supporting the activity and to Mom and Pa for making it possible. We had such fun. My photos aren’t great… but you get the idea.
The reception was in this really cool old building. Beautiful woodwork. [...]
Just before I boxed up my studio, I made Sarah and Marty’s wedding guest book. Marty is one of our cousins (Side Note: We just spent a weekend with that side of the family. They are so much fun to be with. Missing them already) and we are so excited for him and Sarah. I really [...]
A month or so ago, some friends of ours moved away from Texas. For their going away party, Kathleen had the brilliant idea of having a guest book there for everyone to sign. Great idea. So I came up with this guest book.
I found this great blue and white fabric for the cover. The guest book [...]
So, they say there is a first time for everything. In April, I had a first: a funeral guest book.
About a month ago Chris’ grandmother passed away. I made a special guest book for the family to use at the viewing and funeral service.
Grandma’s favorite color was pink so I used a pink silk for the [...]
Here’s another recent handmade guest book I made. The bride, Jill, wanted a gold cover. This was a first for me, but I found the perfect golden silk without much trouble. Beautiful, don’t you think? The guest book is bound with the oatmeal waxed linen thread. Inside, the endsheets were golden with a white damask-type pattern [...]
I really enjoy making wedding guest books.
Kristina’s wedding colors were purple and green. Since purple was more favorite than green, that’s what I went with for the cover. I found a beautiful lavender silk for the front and back covers. Frankfurt paper is on the inside (my favorite!). The endsheets were white with a [...]
I just finished and shipped off this guest book for Mitchell College. They are hosting an author reception soon and commissioned this guest book for the event. The covers are navy linen and bound together with white waxed linen thread. I used the same paper I use in my wedding guest books: Frankfurt white. It has [...]
Just finished up this custom wedding book for Leah & Eliot way over in the UK. Leah had such a beautiful vision of what she wanted her guest book to be and I think I made it reality.
The covers are covered in a cotton fabric with a white lacy pattern printed on it. I used my [...]
Tomorrow there is a very special party at my great auntie’s house. She’s calling it, Pink Party. On the surface, it’s a celebration of the pink dresser that was a Christmas gift given to her and her sister (my grandma) when they were girls. The pink dresser is famous in our family – and [...]
This is a sneak peek for Britten who ordered one of my handmade wedding guest books from PersonalizeYourWedding.com (my website). She chose a chocolate brown silk cover with butterscotch colored waxed linen thread binding. I added a title page at the front with a photo and their names, wedding date, and location. It turned out beautifully! [...]
