    I received my book yesterday and I LOVE it : )

     

    One tip, I asked her NOT to affix the monogram card to the front of the book...some of the etsy feedback indicated that certain folks thought it looked "cheap".  She did enclose the monogram in a separate envelope, and I'm so glad I didn't have her attach it because it does look cheap (and mine was creased).  My plan today is to go to an engravables shop to order a little metal plate to attach to the outside bottom right of the book OR perhaps the inside cover (if it won't scratch up the pages) OR maybe a tag to attach to the bow (if it won't look like it should be hanging from a dog collar!).

        Ok, so the engraved label was a little pricier than I had anticipated ($10 plus $6 per line of text X 3 lines)...$30 when all was said and done!  I shopped around, and I would encourage people to do that, not necessarily to save money, but because the last place I went to had exactly what I was looking for and was better quality than the other stores.  It looks awesome!  I'll post a picture as soon as I can...

          Here it is, my album purchased from the etsy seller below.  They have lots of options for fabrics, ribbon, etc. and were really good to work with.  Remember that the engraved plate was my own addition...pricey but I love it even more with it (see my previous comments concerning the label the comes with the book by the seller).  This is the silver duponi silk with the fuschia/hot pink ribbon.  So, now I have the camera, film, album, sharpies...and I'm ready to go!

              What did you use to glue on the plate?

                I asked the girl who did the engraving...she said they hang  all of their tags on display using this super sticky double sided tape and was confident it would stay on the book.  She put two strips on the back for me.  So far so good...I'd rather try that first than a really messy sticky contact cement or something like that that might bleed thru/stain the fabric.
