I really fell in love with the guest book idea from The Guest Book Store, but I didn't need a book as large as they provide, so I decided to make my own..

You can see the ones from the guest book store here: Click the image to open in full size.

I know you all like to have the details, so here they are:

Products used:
Card Stock - (Blue) Stampin' Up Cool Carribbean (to be discontinued June 30)
Patterned Paper - Crate Paper, Carnival Collection (the green is the backside of the orange) - I just found out they discontinued this collection. Very hard to find it now.
Quote - Creative Memories
Stamp - "Wish" - Stampin' Up.

Background Card - 6" x 6"
Photo Mat (Pattern) - 4" x 3"
Photo Mat (Green) - 3.75" x 2.5"
Wish Mat (Pattern) - 4.5" x 2.75"
Wish Mat (Blue) - 4.25" x 2.5"

Any questions, suggestions, comments let me know.... This is the first one I've done. I don't think I need to add anything, but you never know. I will make a whole 12x12 scrapbook of our trip & some of the non-pro pictures after the wedding, and these pages will be placed in there.

    You are very welcome... I only need 9 of them, so I didn't see buying on of the books.

    I think I might make a 1 page for Jason and then one page for me - so that we can write down our wishes to each other or something. Might be a great way to record those in the moment feelings.

          You can totally do this - well, if you don't need many - the longest part is all the cutting. I did one, took all the measurements and now I will just do them in a production line type of thing. Really - 15 minutes tops per page.
