Wedding Mode

Can't quite believe that it's only 3 more weeks until our first family wedding! I've finally gotten the information from my daughter for her programs, so am in the midst of printing and assembling them using the extra papers from the invitations.

Last night I got a call about the "guest book." They do not want a traditional sign-in book and were thinking of cards for guests to sign and write notes, advice, good wishes etc. But they couldn't think of a way to contain/display them. My wheels started turning and I remembered this extra tin I had which will be perfect for 4" x 6" cards. So I stayed up late last night making this simple container.

These are her wedding colors - the gray paper is metallic Prism - gorgeous. The monogram is the same as we used on her invitations, using a stamp from Just Rite Stamper.

Wedding #1 is not even here and plans are beginning for another daughter's wedding, probably next spring. I decided to make her a wedding planner - just a simple workbook made from a composition book to corral all the bits and pieces of information she comes across and to write down thoughts and plans. I had made one for my other daughter and she found it very useful.

Since she hasn't even decided colors, I used some fairly neutral colors from a Making Memories pack. The tabs were cut with a Stampin Up punch. There is lace (hard to see) to tie it all together and the brown stitched ribbon near the spine on both front and back covers folds over to the inside and hangs below for page markers. I hope she will like it!

Now, back to those programs!
