I loved this idea so i decided to make one for my boyfriend.
No special occasion or anything, just because I love him.
I had so much fun doing it. It took me about a month to do because
I just finished up my senior year of high school and have been busy.
Here's the pictures:

The Front

Some inside pages

Thought that this was appropriate for the king of hearts card.

Well, I've been absent from Craftster for months and months, but I just logged on tonight to check and see what was going on around here... Sammx42, I know this is late, but I just wanted to tell you I think your little book is great -- thanks for posting your photos!

I live on the west coast. She lives on the east coast. We discuss crafts in between. Right here: Trans-craft-inental.

I absolutely love this and I have to agree... this is totally going on my someday list.

I showed it to my best friend because I was admitting my craftster addiction to him, and he LOVED it... He ran out and bought a deck of cards that night to start making one for his girlfriend, and made me promise I wouldnt show her the site!

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.

So why buy what you can craft?  Smiley

This was supposed to be for our 2 year anniv in June, but I didn't finish it until November, in time for his birthday. Either or, it worked out!

Thank you so much for this awesome idea!

The cover was two cards glued face to face. This was one side:

And the other had a pic of us from a photobooth:

...like buying a bunch of yarn I don't have room for.  Tongue

Yes, I know Dora is Mexican. Though he has a cousin who has the same haircut. LOL.

I used the Joker. I thought it was clever.

Thanks for looking, and once again, for the idea!

I've been searching on the internet for like, 2 weeks trying to find the perfect homemade romantic Christmas present for my boyfriend and I'm sure I've now found it! This is AMAZING!!!!!!! However, since we've done many "why I love you" things before I think I'm gonna turn my book into a "52 love song lyrics that make me think of us"! I've already found 52 love songs and picked certain lyrics out of them! Now I just need to get some cards... Post pics when I'm done!!!  Cheesy

"52 love song lyrics that make me think of us"!
