Graphic 45 ~Star Book~

Hello Girls

Horrid weather and PC problem's....Grrr What a start to the day!! Things can only get better, right?

I have been busy keeping Hubby on the straight and narrow (he has this week off work, and I have been supplying him with tea while he has been outside planting up all our lovely hanging baskets).
He has done wonders, the garden is looking super. Unfortunately it's indoor jobs today, but he still need cups of TEA!
I have not been making many card lately (only those needed for coming Birthday's etc) but I have still been busy crafting, just making other things instead of cards.
Don't you sometimes wish there were more hours in a day!!

So thought I would show you what I have been working on for just over two weeks.
It is a Star Book (My first one ever!) and I made the carcass at Art from the Heart's fabulous workshop.
This last week I have been busy decorating the book and adding all the embellishments and Tags.
I managed to get some useful hints and tips off other people who have made these books by adding Graphic 45 Mini Books (that's the paper's used)to Youtube where there are some great tutorials.

All the paper used is Graphic 45, along with the matching embellishment sheets of Graphic 45 too.
I also used some Black and Kraft cardstock, and bits of ribbon, cord and rub-on's.

Front of the Book..

Inside the Star Book when it's opened..

Lots of pages with decorated tags..

I have really enjoyed making this, but will find it impossible to replicate without all the measurements, so hopefully I can get them off Dyan and make another!

Must have taken you ages and ages - not up to that yet after my long break but would love to make something like this for me wee man in a lighter colour tho! Have fun, Sheila:)X Was thinking about you when I saw the news at 1pm about the opening concert of London 2012 taking place up your way in the rain:(

Hi Debbie

Absolutely love your star book, its adorable, and the detail is amazing. I've had one on the go for a while but havent managed to finish it. You ve inspired me to get on with it. Am really envious that you went to one of Dyans classes. I called in AFTH a few weeks ago. What a fab place.

Have you thought about loading the pictures of your book onto the Graphic 45 ning site. G45ers would love to see it. You can get to it from the G45papers main page, scroll down to the bottom and click on the N for ning :-) Hugs Clare G45 UK Design Team Member
