We did not have a guestbook. We had “guest book cards.” These were little rectangles of white cardstock that our guests signed and dropped in a vase.
Mr. P actually rounded all of the corners of these cards himself (if you look at my Engagement Scrapbook Division page, there is a picture of him with the corner rounder). I ordered a custom “P” stamp using the Freebooter Script font that I used for all my wedding stuff.
Why not a guestbook? I always knew, way back then, that I was going to have a wedding scrapbook. I thought having a guestbook separate from the scrapbook was impractical.
So, I had everyone sign these little cards and they sat in a box with my wedding stuff for years. I had no idea how they were fitting in the scrapbook. Should I put several on a page? Maybe, but I felt that grouping them together would take away from the special nature of each message.
As usual, the idea presented itself to me when I was working on other projects and by the time I got to the anniversary section of my scrapbook, I knew exactly what I was going to do.
