Handmade Guest Books of Heirloom Quality

Posted August 22, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

Your guest book will be a lasting memory and heirloom to cherish for years to come. That’s why we love these handmade guest books by Alternative Journals which are made with the finest materials and craftsmanship to last through the years. Celine of Alternative Journals (and quite honestly one of the kindest artisans we’ve ever met) puts two loving hands into each book. Each guest book is handmade from cover to cover with each page individually cut and folded into signatures, sewn together to create a text block. She mentions this is an important feature she adds that others don’t, “so your pages don’t fall out as you reach the end of your book.” Take a peek at three new colors just launched for the fall collection (we told you our Artisans are gearing up for the new season!) including a deep purple, blush, and gray linen:

Keepsake Wedding Planning Book

Posted August 16, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 3 Comments

It doesn’t take long after you get engaged for the ideas to start swirling around in your head. Suddenly finding a photographer, deciding on your wedding cake, and paging through wedding magazines become new priorities to you. With all of your ideas swirling around, you’ll want one place to keep it all organized. To do so, we recommend using a keepsake wedding planning book. Having a book you can physically hold in your hands and take with you is helpful for keeping notes, ideas, notes, and more available when meeting with vendors. You can also tear out pictures from wedding magazines, print out articles + DIY ideas, and paperclip your bridesmaid dress swatch to carry around with you. Your book will keep everything organized to help you plan your perfect as-little-stress-as-possible wedding day.

Each keepsake wedding planning book is handmade with love + care just for you by Annelyn Designs. Each book features sturdy hard covers and pretty embossed paper on top with plenty of customization available. Your book will become a lasting keepsake with laminated covers and tabs to eliminate tears, rips, and bends. A decorative satin ribbon along the binding completes the look and also functions as a bookmark. Our favorite part? We love the expandable folders on the front and back covers which are useful for holding on to deposit slips, business cards, sample fabrics, seating charts, color swatches, and more.

Blissful Books Cake Topper

Posted September 18, 2010 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

After yesterday’s post featuring the most adorable miniature tea set ever created, I have pretty much fallen in love with the tiniest (and I mean TINIEST) details. That’s why this cake topper really struck a chord with me.

I love everything about this cake topper… the cute little faces, the apparel (what a cute little green trench!), the miniature buttons, the way his bag is slung over his shoulder with that adorable pencil, and those BOOKS! This is the perfect topper for book worms or the couple who met (and smooched) in the college library.  LOVE. ♥♥  Spotted via Lace and Rubbish.
