Rehearsal Photo Album and Guest Book

As I was planning my rehearsal dinner I knew that there would be photos and I thought of a great idea to do with the candid shots we would end up with.  I decided beforehand to include them in a mini album which would double as a guest book.  I had seen on Becky Higgins' (the founder of Project Life) website that she had done a mini album in this manner for a wedding.  I thought it would work perfectly for my rehearsal events.

I looked at various albums and settled on one of the Project Life Mini Albums instead of a ringed binder type book.  The good news is that the pages are sewn in...the bad news is that you have that limit on cannot add to them, of course.  But I thought I would make do and it really all worked out fine.

I didn't put a lot of time into this...I didn't want a lot of embellisments and I wanted the album to lay flat. Pictures and insert cards were about it!  I used insert cards from the Becky Higgins Blush Project Life core kit.

Here is the outside:
I added an engagement photo of the bride and groom.
On the inside I posted this:
Not everyone filled out a card but I got pretty good response.  I was impressed!
Here is the cover page:

Then I simply loaded up the album with photos of the evening and cards that were filled out by guests.

I added a few diecuts here and there but this whole process was very fast and very easy!

The couple is returning from the honeymoon today and I will see them tomorrow for Mother's Day.  I will give them this album as a little momento of the evening and I know they will both love it!

Happy Crafting and Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there!

  3. Stunning and thoughtful. That's the same album I used for my Prayer notebook, and I have two more of those intended for our grandsons' ABC 123 book (Easter has come and gone, maybe Christmas 2014!) Very nice work, Susan.
