working on: custom wedding guestbook

I had the honor and privilege to create my first custom guestbook for a bride's upcoming wedding :) Even more fun is that she is all the way from France - so this little book will be making the trek across the Atlantic soon. 

The bride-to-be and her fiancée really liked this journal I had created, so I wanted to create something along those lines. She sent me a sample of fabric with their wedding colors - I went from that and used all sorts of grays, pinks and white linen cardstock papers. I also included some sheets of vellum and silver crinkle paper. Each page has a blank white sheet adhered - space for guests to write a note or doodle for the bride and groom.
I incorporated the punches (from punching each page) into a confetti window, then added some of the fabric on top. For the cover sheet I used gray linen cardstock and printed their names, a heart and the date (isn't her name beautiful?!). I then adhered gray polka dot washi tape, a strip cut from the fabric, and three vintage buttons. There is a piece of heavy chipboard in the front (behind the confetti window and gray cardstock) and the back for added durability.
I am loving how it turned out. I am so glad I could help with their special day and hope this sweet little book will be something they can look through and cherish long after the wedding :) Thank you Nathanaëlle and Charles for letting me put together your wedding book :)
