I had a little fun playing with my Smashbook the other night with my daughter. We were both going through our stashes of stuff that we wanted to Smash. The hardest part was deciding on if this was going to be of my past or for the present. I decided it would start in October of 2011 since I vacationed with my family for the first time since I was a child!
My favorite parts so far......... I love, love, love the tags I made. The one is double sided self adhesive chipboard with the words cut out of the hat I got from Krispy Kreme at Mohegan Sun the other night. I inked it, added a little glitter and used a paperclip to hang it in the page and the other is a tag made with Tim Holtz's embossing folder BINGO that is distressed, glimmer misted and perfect pearled!
I'm working on a transparency page to add in between some other pages I am working on. I am not sure how I am going to insert it yet--but it's fun experimenting!
I really think a Smashbook would be the perfect Recipe book for my kids for when they move out because I could make the recipe cards with Kates Kitchen or From My Kitchen and use the pockets/make pockets to tuck the recipes in after I laminate them. The Smashbooks are meant to get "aged" and messy looking and I think it would be eclectic looking for them. A lot of stores have them for $6.50 right now and I am pretty sure I just talked myself into this idea!! I am in a recipe swap right now and since it's a 6x6 swap I believe they would fit nicely in a Smashbook!
