It measures approximately 16" high and 17" wide (8" deep) and has 3 zippered pockets
Perfect for carrying current projects and supplies to workshops or retreats, or as extra storage for albums, pages, paper or tools. And it's cute too!
I love that the inside is light blue with polka dots -- the light blue color will make it easy for me to retrieve things from inside the bag! I won't need to use my flashlight when looking for that multipurpose tool that has fallen to the bottom. And it is a cheery color - blue is one of my favorite colors!
Speaking of blue....how would you like a new blue cardstock?
Introducing Eggplant, Gray, Peacock Blue and Beige! Creative Memories 12x12 solid cardstock is acid-free, lignin-free and buffered. Comes in packs of 10 sheets.

Natural Elegance is pre-decorated so all you do is add your photos. I love this video and I love how versatile the album is because of the neutral colors. Your wedding colors will POP off the page!
I also love the suggestion to use this album for Heritage Photos. Yes!! Such a gorgeous background for your black and white prints.

Here is a fun idea for an interactive guest book. I picked up a mini burlap scrapbook from a local craft store to use for a recent surprise Anniversary Party.
The cover of the album was cute but no place for a title so I found a package of heart-shaped chalkboard tags. I wrote the couple's initials with a white Chalk Marker, then tied it to the front of the book with some twine. (The chalk marker dries quickly but can be wiped off with a wet cloth so if you make a mistake, it can be easily corrected.)
We set out an instax mini 8 camera (it's a mini Polaroid-type camera by Fuji) next to the album on the reception table. My daughter was stationed at the table to let guests know what to do. "Take a photo!" "Tape it in the Book!" "Write a Message to the Couple!" It was super fun to do and we got a lot of surprised and nostalgic comments about Polaroid memories...Fun!
We had plenty of film for the 100+ guests -- and were able to order in bulk through Amazon prime. It's also a good idea to have a few replacement batteries on hand just in case.
We also had a white pen and a black Creative Memories pen at the table for guests to sign the book next to their photo(s). And a couple rolls of decorative washi tape (Japanese removable masking tape) so guests could quickly tape their instax photo into the guest book:
On the first page of the guest book I put a photo of the happy couple (from their wedding 30 years ago):
Soon the book started to fill up with fun photos and special notes:
If you're into social media, you can have a mini chalkboard or sign out with the designated hashtag for your event. Here is an idea I found on Pinterest from BrideBox Wedding Albums:
Their chalkboard sign displays the hashtag they want guests to use to post photos of the event on Instagram.
Here's a cute wedding display from cocodaydream.com
There are so many ideas to make guest books interactive and fun! I hope you enjoyed these!
