Create a Wedding Photo Guest Book

sample wedding guest book 1 A couple of years ago when my daughter got married, I created a photo guest book for the wedding, so their guest could sign in and add their well wishes.

It was super easy to do using My Digital Studio and a designer template.  In fact, it was my first time using the program and I completed the book in one morning.

Using the Summer Home designer template, I simply eliminated some of the embellishments and photo boxes to allow for plenty of room for signatures and messages from their guests.

The brackets on this page were in Kiwi Kiss, so when I changed the background paper to Kiwi Kiss, I changed the brackets to Bashful Blue.  This is super easy to do with the My Digital Studio 2 update.  You just highlight the brackets, click on then’recolor’ icon and then choose the color you want.  After I eliminated the extra photoboxes and embellishments and rearranged a few things, I simply dropped the pictures into place and viola! instant wedding photo guest book!

The morning I created their wedding guest book, my laptop wasn’t working, so I used my son’s laptop.  As a result I lost the original file after I sent it to Stampin’ Up! to be printed, so I recreated it here so you could see how I did it.  I plan to create a video tutorial this week on how to create a photo guest book.

Enjoy, Julie
