*Star Book*

Hi everyone, so nice of you to drop by.
Today I have something new to show you....it's new for me anyway.
It is a star book that I made for my daughter and her hubby for their 25th wedding anniversary.


The papers I used are DCWV *LA CREME* matstack.  It is one of their premium paper stacks and is just beautiful.  The colours are black, cream, a darker cream and a little brown.....some have flocking.





This is why it is called a *star* book.

I used my Cricut cartridges a lot for this one.  The ones I used most are *Serenade* - *Storybook* - *Sophisticated* and *Lacy Labels*
You don't want your embellishments to be too thick, so other than using pop dots on a couple of items, I kept everything flat.
I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, and will be making another one for sure.  If you would like to give it a try check out the very detailed tutorial I found on Expert Village  There are about 6 short videos, each dealing with one of the steps involved.

Have a lovely day, bye for now....
