Color motif are turquoise and ivory. Again, I used a thick plastic sheet I got from Grafix Arts as a cover.
I framed the couples picture that I took from the wedding invitation. Added Prima flowers, letter charms, sticker sentiments (from Philippines), diecut flowers and acrylic frame. If you noticed the acrylic frame matches the card. To be able to come up with the same color as the paper, I wet a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and put a drop of SU reinker.
I used April Shower cartridge for the panel sheets. I used chipboard sheets then sandwiched it with CS. I did it that way to make sure each panel will not get wrinkle by people who are signing it. I added diecuts and tiny flatback pearls as a embellish on each pages.
I asked Lia whether she prefers a guestbook that has lines on it. I suggested to go with guestbook/wishbook, so guests can leave comments, advices or just plain well wishes to the couple and she took my advice for it. That should explain why its plain inside.
I used Stampin Up! CS for the color turquoise and I used Gina K luxury paper for color ivory. Then I used Wassau for the metallic gold for diecut images. I used the cartridge Botanical for the diecut.
I'm not sure if you can see in this picture the plastic sheet cover I used. I dressed it up with ivory colored tulle that has glitters, satin ribbon, pearl string/garland and a pair of wedding bands.
I made a total 15 (30 pages back to back) panels for the guestbook and hopefully that will be enough for the couple's guests to write on.
I cut all the panels using Cricut machine but what I don't understand was the CS was cut differently from chipboard. Trimming each pages and sanding them afterward was extra work that I didn't expect. What's bad was I had to sufferer for days for sinusitis headache because of the dust I got from the papers while sanding it. Also, I used my Xyron big sticker machine for each flower diecuts and it suppose to make thing easy, instead I ended up erasing extra adhesive, which was a tedious job. I hate seeing adhesives on any projects.
At the end, I was pleased with this project even if it took so long to finish it. Lia was so happy with it and cant stop from saying WOW. Hopefully her friend would like it and so do you!
