    I love this idea! I would have never thought of it!! So did you ask each guest to send you a picture?

    I am taking just the loose pages, and then will put them in the album after I get home. They will go into a large 12x12 album, and the pages are only 6x6.

    I have assigned the bridesmaids with the task of getting a picture of each couple the night of the wedding, that picture will go on the page. Then that will picture will be included in their thank you cards, in a frame.

        Great idea. I've been bouncing ideas around in my head for a guest book and this is awesome!

        Thanks for sharing!

          Ok Stephanie, the questions are starting, lol!!

          I bought my first round of materials today, there is so much stuff you can buy!! I made sure to look for acid & lignin free stuff.

          I have one question. I bought these sheets with quotes on them, like the love one you have, I think they're on vellum, but I have no idea what to do with them! Do I just cut them out and put them on the paper or am I supposed to iron them or something. The thought of ironing something on paper kind of scares me and this is probably the dumbest question you've ever heard but I really have no idea what I'm doing!

          you actually apply those to the paper with a popsicle stick (weird right) they are rub ons...and make sure you rub it all the way on or you will get part of a quote...do a practice one first...

          I think Stephanie might be leaving this weekend, so let me know if you have any other questions, I did something similar to hers (but hers is way better!!!)

            I thought maybe we were supposed to rub them but we tried that and it didn't really seem to work either, is it because we tried it on a piece of notebook paper or maybe we didn't rub long enough? I feel like an idiot but I can't figure it out!

            When I looked at stephanies, hers kind of looked like the piece of vellum just cut out and pasted on, but I could be wrong.

            Mine won't be as good as hers either, but I'll try really hard, lol!

            I think you are right about it being the straight vellum...hmm that is why I just printed mine out from the computer

              I was planning to print them from the computer, but then I saw these today at the store and they were inexpensive, so I thought, oh, this is so much easier, lol!! Obviously I've never done this before! I think I'll just cut them out and paste them on, I think they'll look fine. Thank you for your help!
