My DIY guestbook with Blurb - pic heavy
Posted 06 August 2009 - 10:51 AM
What I did:
I used a wrapped cover and put our monogram on it
On the left pages I put a quote of some kind in the upper left corner and then underneath lines for guests to sign
On the right pages I put a photo of PV on each page with a header "puerto Vallarta photos" I had to use Dreamstime.com website to purchase the PV photos (since I've never been there) but it was pretty inexpensive.
For those not familiar, this was my first time using Blurb and it came pretty much exactly what I expected. I think next time I would do a few things differently, like maybe add more pages, have a thicker book. I only had about 20 pages or less and the book is thin. You can download any photos you want (but make sure you have the legal rights to use it) and you can design anything!
We wanted more like a coffee table book with PV photos in it, but I liked this better because I was able to add personal touches with the quotes etc
"If your husband wants to go fishing, let him. It just means you have more time for shopping." and
"I love being married. It's so great to find that one person you want to annoy the rest of your life." and "a good marriage is at least 80 percent good luck in finding the right person at the right time. The rest is trust." quotes like that.
(that gives me an idea...I wonder if there is some sort of quote thread....?)
Anyways, here are pics - not sure how they will turn out
My colors are ivory/white/grey/silver sort of so the pages are sort of lavender grey which matches perfectly. It probably took my about 4 hours to make this but that included figuring out how to the buy the PV photos.

The book itself was somewhere around $31. It cost me about $15 to "buy" the photos and I think maybe $10 for shipping. I just love adding the quotes in it because I know people will read them and laugh.
