Nicole and Rob

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!

One thought on “Nicole and Rob

  1. Rose, it’s absolutely beautiful. It perfectly suited our personalities, and it was somehow the same shade of turquoise as the linens (as if you knew!). I’m adding one of our invitations and a wedding program, and I plan to add photos.

    I am 1000% beyond pleased with our book. You are amazing – and the idea of having a handmade book fit perfectly with our boho/rustic/farm theme…

    ……I’m going to have to send you some photos of the farm animals wearing their tutus. The donkey even had her hooves painted for the occasion.

    Thank you!!!
    Nicole
