My SMASH* Adventures Part 1..

Heya all!

Ok so i'm a littttttttle excited with my post today! I've been SMASH* ing all week since i've been poorly! and wanted to show off a little what i'd done so far with my book! (and yep i've even preordered all the new colours!) i know theres an easy way to create your own with your own papers, but i like the idea of having the actual SMASH* book ready made and they're really pretty!

The book i've started with is the Retro Blue folio! it's so me!!! i love the papers inside!!! yummy and the outsides enbossed pattern is lovely (i'm yet to know what to do with the front so i've left it alone at the moment.....

Now then SMASH* it is yes your right the OLD way of scrapping just putting things randomly in a book, so the concept isn't new! but i love the idea's of quotes on pages and pretty papers... espech as i struggle with what i can MODERN 12x12 scrapping this is ideal for me!!!


Ok... so when you first open the Blue Retro SMASH* book it doesn't look like this there are two green pages that are blank like any start to any book! so i wanted to brighten them up using some of my favourite papers the one on the left is by american crafts and the right is echo park! offf course!!!
My idea's for my books are going to be everything that makes me happy from smileys to quotes to random facts about me and my life to piccys to anything really!!

When i get the Black mini SMASH* folio i'm going to do that with everything i hate, things that make me unhappy, why?? because as well as remembering the good times it's also great to remember the things that make me sad too!!

These pages i'm showing arn't finished, you can SMASH* anything you like in your book and i want mine crammed!!! so at the moment that's how the first two look!

This is my welcome page the one on the left! I wrote a little about my book and what i wanted it for used some of my fav american crafts stamps to go with the papers! and created a lil pocket from DCWV Mango fresh stack.



My 2nd Page... i'll add here... the vellumy page actually comes inside all of the folio's but i really like it it's quite quirky so i left it inside this book! My fav echo park walk in the park spotty paper i covered this green page in and used some cool funky sparkly letters to create my name down the side (of course!!)

I might add insert here ----> that a smash book isn't designed to start at the beginning and work page by page it's one of those books you can chop and change as much as you like currently i have about 15 pages on the go.... these i'm happy with at the moment so i thought i'd show you them!



Next i wanted to share my Top 10 page... it was blank with the gorjuss paper and top ten wrote on already but i wanted to use this page for me about my crafting... again lots of space left which i find myself adding bits to and sticking things in as and when i find things in my craftroom!

So that's my SMASH* adventures for this week! I'll of course be showing you more of my book as and when!! remember if you get one! there is NO wrong way of doing it it's all about you! and what you like!!!
