Scrapbook-Inspired Guest Book

You walk into the church.  The guest book attendant greets you.  You pick up the pen.  You write your family’s name on the line.  You put the pen down.  The usher takes you to your seat.  Yawn.


My mom found a cute guest book idea in “The Best of Martha Steward Living: Weddings.”  The guest writes a note to the bride and groom on a small piece of cardstock, then slips it in one of the mini envelopes on the scrapbook page.  Not only is it fun to see what everyone wrote to you, but you’ll treasure your guest book for ever!

Here are some pages I have completed in mine.  I enjoy scrapboooking, so whenever I feel overwhelmed by wedding planning I just unwind by putting a few guest book pages together.

The front cover is a subdued damask paper, dressed up with sparkly blue ribbon and a pewter frame. "Guest Book" is spelled out in typewriter-style letters.


Vintage meets shabby chic with white and blue polka-dotted flowers with pink rhinestone centers. Pink envelopes and a Bible verse add to the elegance.


This is probably my favorite page. "Honor" is nestled inside a dark bronze frame, surrounded by clear rhinestones and two simple envelopes, and rests on top of a neutral damask background.


Fun glittery letters and not-quite-formal paper make this page simply shabby.
