My Newest Smash Book Project

Well, my Daily Junque Journal is getting full.
It has also evolved into more of an inspiration journal than a "Smash Book."  So, I decided to shift gears a bit.  I am going to finish this book up, using the clippings and printouts from magazines, the internet, etc, and keep this as an inspiration journal.  I am going to leave the personal things in here, though, as I don't want to rip those pages out!

I am going to start another "Smash Journal" and I am going to use a book I put together 2 years ago, and then set aside to wait for the perfect project.

 I bought this kit from Creating Keepsakes at a convention 2 years ago.  It is full of fun things.  The only thing I did different was to use bigger bookrings, when I decided to make it a "Smash Book".  I figure it is going to get big!
 It is a big book, the pages are 6x12".  It has a ton of them!  Some are cardstock, some are transparencies...
 There are envelopes...
 And chipboard pieces.
 There are tons of possibilities.
 I used a chipboard ribbon slide "Remember" and used ribbon and score tape to adhere it to the plastic cover.
 This is the first "entry."  My husband gave me these BEAUTIFUL flowers for Valentine's day!  I saved the cellophane paper from it, and the card.  I printed  a picture and put it on an envelope.
 I doodled one day at work, and the shopping bag has some stuff I saved from a girly shopping trip with my BFF.
I added a menu from the coolest burger place around here, and a bunch of tags from some clothes that I recently bought.

That's it for now.  What do you think?

Stay Crafty!!

What a great idea! Love the paper you chose for the cover. I kind of do the same thing with an old school composition book covered in fabric.
