JanTInk's one sheet book

This week's 3D challenge was JanTInk's one sheet book. It is adorable! It would be perfect for school photos. For mine, I decided to print my favorite Bible verses on computer business cards and put them in the book. I am actually keeping this one for myself, but this would make a great little gift for someone who needs some inspiration.
You get 10 pages if you don't count the front and back which adhere to the cover, and it uses 1 sheet of 12 X 12 paper. I chose Urban Garden because it's my favorite! Yes, I used a whole sheet of DSP all for myself!!
You can find Jan's great directions here on SCS.

Here is what the inside looks like. I used the pattern that made 3" X 4" pages.

I made my cover from Baja Breeze textured cardstock. It was 4 1/2" wide and 8 1/2" long. I scored on the long side at 3 1/4", 3 1/2", 6 3/4" and 7". This made the cover 3 1/4" X 4 1/2" with a 1/4" allowance for the thickness of the pages, and it also gave a 1 1/2" flap.

I made a belly band from Basic Gray textured cardstock. It was 3/4" wide and 10" long. I scored on the long side at 4 1/2", 4 3/4", 9 1/4" and 9 1/2". This leaves 1/2" to adhere to close the band.

Tip of the day: Decorate the cover before you adhere the pages inside! I didn't, and now the cover doesn't lay flat for stamping.

Here is a close-up of one of the inside pages with the business card attached. I printed the verses in gray ink and used the ticket corner punch to give them a little pizzazz.

Supplies(all SU except business cards): Stamps: none; Paper: Urban Garden DSP, Baja Breeze textured, Basic Gray textured, business cards; Ink: none; Accessories: ticket corner punch, Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon

Happy stamping!

This looks lovely - I've just received some of my new pages so might just have a play. Thanks for the inspiration.
