UPDATE: The photos are back! This album appeared in the April issue of Scrapbook Trends. Since it's been a couple months since, I can share it here again. :)
Hi all! For those that aren't familiar with them, this is a starbook. The pages fan out simliar to an accordian book, but stand up and form a star when looking from above. Super fun to make, but do take quite a bit of time.
Supplies: All paper is American Crafts from their Play series, ribbon and buttons (AC), chipboard stars and circle (Technique Tuesday), chipboard frame (Fancy Pants), stamps (Stampin' Up!), stamping ink (SU!), embossing powder (SU!), white cardstock (SU!)
So many of you asked for instructions, I made the how-to into a PDF. Download it here.

Thanks for sharing the instructions for this book. I always wanted to take a class to learn this never could fit it into my schedule. You did a great job on yours. It deserved to be on the cover of Scrapbook Trends. Linda

You know that I love all of your stuff, but this is freakin' cute! And btw, I still do check out your blog all the time, I just can't get through the spam protection to comment. I tried doing what you said to fix the problem, but it still says I'm not signed in. Anywho, I still think you ROCK! :)

Just want you to know that when this first came out, I ran out to the store to buy the magazine just because the pics from your blog were so cute. I can't believe that the magazine didn't include this page. Takes the whole thing up a notch on the "cuteness" scale!

I'm starting a star book. I have several questions. The pages that are shorter that go into making the star, are they pages that you can add picture to? Or are they just so you can see the star from above? I noticed that there are ribbons, do they tie all the shorter pages together?
I really like the papers you used. The brighter the better as far as I'm concerned.
