Mary asked for a STARS book - she's doing them for her son's football team! Cute idea!!

Yes, I am still working on Mother's Day gifts! :) Thought I would share this one... the pages are 6" tall, and the book will be almost 11" long. (I needed the height for my project.)
Designed with George (square) and Storybook...
I saw this collection of paper and stickers at Scrapbook Destination in Denver and snapped it up, thinking it would make a great "something" for Mike for Valentine's Day!
I used the Going Places cartridge to design the pages. The rounded squares (with and without couple) and the arrow are all standard shapes on the cartridge. I welded some shapes together to make the "rounded edge" and "octagon" pages. The cut file is at the end of the post if you're interested!
I am not quite finished yet - I have a cool transparency that I want to work into the book and some other items, but I thought I would share what I have so far.
For the cover, I cut the shape with the couple silhouetted and then cut another rounded square to back it. I sprinkled a few black beads on the silhouettes and filled in with Diamond Glaze.
Thanks for looking and here is the cut file...
I am working on a mini-album for my husband now... when I'm done, I will post photos and the cut file for it! In the meantime, here are links to some other cut files I have posted that might be appropriate for Valentine's Day! :)
LOVE Word Book 6x12
LOVE Mini Book
Fancy-edged book (Designed by Linda)
This is my tutorial on creating a word book, but there is a LOVE book at the end.
And here is a link to all my posts containing a cut file... :)
This is the 6x12" Love book that I posted last year. Someone pointed out that the left edges of each page were over the "line" on the mat, so the Cricut would not cut them out. I did that on purpose, since I wanted the full length of each page. I have adjusted the left margins on the attached, so they will cut for you! :)

I wanted to make something special for a couple of friends who will be having babies soon, so I designed another BABY book, this time using Storybook to make it a little fancier. :) I will post pictures when I get them cut out and embellished!
Designed with Storybook & George...
I finally finished the GRANDKIDS books that I posted about some time ago! (These are for someone else to give as gifts.)
I cut both of these from cereal boxes using the GRANDKIDS cut file I offered in a previous post. I also cut the patterned paper to cover both sides. I painted the edges of the pages and the photos, then embellished. I think they came out pretty cute! :)
