Bridal Shower Journal

I have done this for several of my friends who have gotten married and for my sisters as well. This one being for my sister Laura who just got married on Sept. 27th. Blue is her favorite color, so

  • I used the beautiful Bella Bleu designer series paper for the covers.
  • Then used Basic Grey, Sky Blue (retired), Baja Breeze (retired), and Blue Bayou (retired) when decorating all the pages of the journal with 7 different designs (see below).
  • I added the flowers and glitter on the cover, as well as the card we ordered for her "Thank You's".
  • Each decorated page in the journal has glitter on it as well although it doesn't show up on all the pictures that well.
  • Stampin' Up!'s spiral punch and OnBoard Journal was used as well.

How It Works

So, the left side of the journal was "blank" where pictures of guests were added (that's why in the pictures below you only see the right-side of the journal pages), and the right side was stamped (as shown below) and that is where the guests wrote their message to the bride-to-be.

The following designs were repeated for all the pages of the journal, so in the end, all the "right sided" pages would have an image on them.

The following stamp sets were used:
  • Upsy Daisy
  • Gentler Times (retired, one of my favorite bridal sets)
  • Baroque Motifs
  • So Swirly Jumbo Wheel

Hope you enjoyed this project!
