Baby Star Book

'Anything Goes' is the January challenge over at dies to Die for & MMCS so I'm entering this baby star book I made for Sara over at Cardmaking Paradise :

I played around with the size & shape of this star book, Papermania cardstock was used for the main pages, I distressed the edges with nail file and the inner pages were decorated with Dovecraft papers, I decoupaged elements from the pages to add dimension.  Die-Namics  dies were used throughout.

The Box

I used my Hougie board to make the box, used on of Sara’s beautiful bows across the top, added Dovecraft paper to embellish.

Star Book

the January challenge over at dies to Die for & MMCS is 'Anything Goes' so I wanted to enter this star book I made for Sara at Cardmaking Paradise :


I decided to make a star book to hold some memorabilia of my daughter’s wedding. Wedding invites were used for the pages. I used left over dress material, song sheets, and favours for elements throughout the book. I had to adjust the thickness of the book in order to hold everything. I used Creative Expressions stamp throughout, Old Paper & Tea Die distress inks. I embossed the rose stamp onto some dress material and used Spellbinders heart shaped die. The cut out alpha’s & fishtails are Die-Namics dies. As my sewing machine played a major part of the wedding prep I wanted to reflect this in the book so I sewed all the pages together.

The Box
I used my Hougie board to make the box, added one of Sara’s beautiful bows around the edge, used the CE rose stamp & Tea Die DI along with more memorabilia.
