Hi. Remember how I used to blog? Well, I’m ready to do that again.
At the last minute, I decided to be a vendor at the July Jubilee in College Station so I’m working around the clock getting ready. This is my first official craft fair – I’m excited to give it a try. I [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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! [...]
Like I mentioned before, this guest book is in my top favorites.
Can you blame me?
Check out those endsheets. And the aqua silk covers. And the well thought out details with the song lyrics and engagement photos.
Working with Alison to design this guest book was such a treat. Thank you Alison! [...]
I love making books. Especially when I know the person who owns the book loves it as much as I do. That’s one reason working for Alison was such a joy! I just shipped her guest book to her this afternoon so I’m only posting a few photos now – I don’t want to spoil her [...]
Just finished a wedding guest book today… for my brother! Are they cute, or what? (the happy couple, that is)
The great thing about the guest book is that it opens completely flat. The binding will never crack or break or fall apart – no matter how many guests sign it. I used extra material from her [...]

Sacramento Magazine contacted me and are using one of my guest book photos in their wedding magazine in June. I’ll post photos of the issue in June. Really exciting!
