Dustin Pike meets One Stop Craft Challenge

I have been procrastinating over Dustin’s Challenge blog sketch for a week now and decided it was time to make a card for it. I used the One Stop Craft Challenge of “Make it Personal” to make a card for my Dad for his birthday, a little early as its not until March lol. Here it is:

Take one shaped book, 3 sketches and some Christmas party pictures…

…and what do you get?

No its not a joke. I have been meaning to do something with this gear shaped book from Kut 4 U, which comes with a template (which is the Just Us Girls challenge for this week), 8 pages and a jump ring. I split it into 2 in order to do 1 book each for my boys. I took the sketch from Crafts for eternity to make the front page:

Then I turned it to make the 2nd page:

I then used Mojo Mondays Sketch for this page:

and then I used the Sketch and Stash sketch for this page:
I added another jump ring and some ribbon to complete 2 books with 4 double sided pages each ­čÖé Job done!
Of course I did them all digitally but it would have been just as easy if I had done them traditionally, even if a little fiddly. If anyone is wondering why a gear shaped book, well thats easy, the boys got remote control cars as presents!
