Wedding Guest Book Complete

This is the completed project. It's my first Bind-It-All attempt and though the binding process was a bit of a challenge, I think it turned out very well. I hope Kelli and Aaron like it.

Some details: 6 x 9" chipboard was used for the cover (thanks Fairy Godmother!). It was covered with My Mind's Eye 29th Street Market collection Carefree Adorable - Adoring Print and Loving Lavender paper (now discontinued). Template for the pages was gotten from Sue Nelson of Heartprints - Thanks, Sue! I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink to ink the edges (the paper is already somewhat distressed but this just gave it a nice finish). Ribbon is from Target Club Wedd. Half pearls are from Basic Grey.

Wedding Guest Book Sneak Peek

I've been absent for some time, but no excuses. I haven't stamped much at all this summer and that's OK. My niece Kelli will be getting married on September 12, and I told her I'd make her guest book. Here is a sneak peek of the cover - in progress. It will have a dark brown ribbon/bow where the 2 papers meet. This paper is from My Mind's Eye, is double-sided and textured. It's actually what I would consider cardstock. Stay tuned for more pictures as my project progresses. Thanks for looking.
