star book 2

Remember my previous star book?

Well I made another one, this time for my dad for his name day
(a catholic tradition, you are named after a saint, and on his/her day, it is your "fete")

This time I decided to use a different technique
and followed this tutorial,
from the Carol Duval Show.

I found a cute little book about champagne for $1.19
with a black cover, just perfect,
not that the subject matters,but I had fun reading the book, so a plus!

I followed the directions in the tutorial,
glued and decorated my pages.
I used green and ivory cardstocks.

I stamped my heart away to make some backgrounds.
Following the directions,
I added some pockets,

and tags, for decorations or they can be used for book marks.

I added some special photos
like my parents' wedding picture

and Miss C. and Brick Master portrait.

I think it turned out nicely,
hopefully my dad will like it,
he is not much of an artsy crafty kind of guy,
 but he usually enjoys all the stuff I make,
signs of a true Dad!

Bonne fete, Papa!

Happy crafting!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
