I’ve only recently got into smash booking just to see what all the fuss is about and I’m dangerously close to being hooked. It’s totally addictive and so much fun too. It’s so quick, much quicker than a scrapbook page, less messy than an art journal yet it sits somewhere in between the two. I have friends who’ve bought those special books with the fancy glue pens and even the journaling cards and sticky notes but that’s just not me. I like to make my own stuff, books especially so that’s just what I did. If you can’t make your own book then just buy an exercise book, there are plenty of them about at the moment with all the back to school stuff. You can make a stash of journaling cards too using stamps from My Stamp Box like I’ve done here.
Here I’m sharing one of my first layouts. I’ve used some My Stamp Box stamps to add some fun elements around the page and several of the stamp sets are perfect for smashing.
I’ll be off on holiday in a couple of weeks and when I go away I like to take a journal and supplies and because I’m journaling I like to take EVERYTHING much to my husbands dismay!! This year however I think I’ll take a smaller book and less supplies and create more of a holiday smash book than journal.
With that in mind I’ve created a kit and stamped out some of my favourite journaling stamps to take with me. That way I can pull one out and just glue it in as I see fit.
Why not have a go at smash booking and make up your own kit using your favourite stamps so you’ll be ready to go.
