a 70th birthday book

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

. . . . .

Heather and her mom put together this 70th birthday book for her dad, Gilbert. I love the way the book turned out – a perfect mix of classic and fun. For the colors we used chocolate brown, cream and gold stamping – classic and lovely. But for the endsheets we played on the G for Gilbert and added G words that describe him – which added a fun and playful feel.

Heather did an especially great job curating the photos for the different sections of his life – she picked just one or two perfect pictures and it made such an impact.

(p.s. – we fuzzed out the last name on the book to respect our client’s privacy…this is not actually how the stamping looks!)

Look at this lovely couple. Carrie and Tristan had such an old fashioned, classic feel to their wedding. I love it. We used a soft-white paper for the book to add to the vintage feel. And their vows alongside the images turned out really sweet.
