I used to do a lot of scrapbooking, but stopped and put all of my supplies away. I think the reason I stopped scrapbooking is that I let life be consumed by a busy work schedule, the grieving of my Dad's passing; and lots of other family changes.
Even though I stopped scrapbooking, it didn't keep me from collecting pictures, ephemera, mementos, and so on. I'm happy that I have found joy in scrapbooking and other forms of journaling again.
I just learned about Smash Books and I like the idea of it.
This is my first attempt at it.
I created my first Smash Book -in my own style- using all kinds of saved cards, tags, paper, ephemera, letters, mail, calendars, brochures, tickets, etc...that I have collected and meant something special to me.
I didn't go out and purchase the standard Smash Book, but used my own scrapbook album for this purpose. I'm pretty happy with the results.
It's going to be a busy summer...!!!
