A couple of months ago, I reconnected with an old college friend. She asked if I’d make a book for her parents’ wedding anniversary. She also wanted a wedding guest book for her own wedding, which was a couple of months later. She and her (now husband) Rob just got married on a beautiful farm in western Pennsylvania. While I don’t know Rob personally, I’ve “watched” their relationship from afar (via Facebook, of course), and it seems like they are just the perfect fit in so many ways.
The book I made for Nicole and Rob mirrored the one I made for her parents. Nicole and I picked the decorative paper together, eventually deciding upon this paisley sort of design. I adore the way this paper looks in book form. I had hoped to purchase book cloth that would match the reds, but that proved too difficult. So, I went with a sandstone shade.
I have been taking advantage of the album text blocks available at Paper Source. They are really sturdy, last forever and have a cute headband at the end. I feel good knowing this book will sit on the shelf for years to come.
I also got to take advantage of my custom stamp! I had a stampmaker on Etsy make this for me a while back. Not only do I use the stamp for packaging, but I also mark each book on the inside, too.
Nicole said the book was a hit, and I was so glad it fit in with the rest of her outdoor wedding decor. Congratulations, Nicole and Rob!
