Thanks to all of you wonderful craftsters I got the idea to make a star book for my boyfriend for Valentines so I thought I'd share the fruits of my labour!! Each page has one letter as it's inspiration and they spell out i love you through the book and each theme means something to me and my boyfriend, like yellow is his fave colour etc, oh well you'll see, don't think my explanation is going very well....onto the pics!!











And this is inside the "open me up", it's me!!




It's not so good at opening up to look like a star because all the pages are a little heavy but I still like it. What do you think?? I'd love to hear your comments.

Thanks for looking,

Heidi

This is such a great Valentine! I'm new to papercrafting, so I'm not familiar with the star book idea, but it certainly looks impressive. I really like the Love page and the Eating Cake page. I bet your boyfriend will love it - it's obvious that you put a lot of thought into it.

Thanks! It was a lot of fun to make and to come up with words/phrases for each of the letters in I love you! The backing on the love and eating cake pages are actually postcards that I found in the union shop at uni, they were too cute to leave on the shelves!! lol  Cheesy

Well, mine isn't nearly as valentine's day-ish.. because he really isn't into the whole red and pink thing.  I drew some quick comics of some of my favorite memories... and made the cover's marbelled paper myself. Smiley

Wow yours is fab!!! I love that you've gone for the monochrome look, it looks really classy. Mine is much more childish but that's us all over lol! I love the marbled paper as well, I might try that for my next project!! Good job and thanks for sharing!  Cheesy
