Hi! Happy Monday!!
I hope you all had a nice weekend! Today is "Scrapping the Little Things" over at My Creative Time. This is the day that we showcase Project Life, Smashbook or Project Life "like" layouts!
I honestly did not think I would ever get a Smashbook! I didn't really know what they were or what they were for.....but the more I saw what everyone was doing with them, the more I liked them so I decided to give it a try! Now I think I'm going to be hooked! It reminds me a lot of a scrapbook I made back when I was in high school.....many moons ago!!! :)
Here is my first attempt!!
I'm actually pretty happy with how it turned out! And it was a lot of fun. I tend to save lots of paper mementos so this is ideal for me!! I wanted to keep it as stress free and simple as possible, I didn't want it to turn it to another scrapbook that I get years behind on! So I decided not to obsess with having it look "perfect"
My son (Joseph) is in band and I always save the concert programs and never know what to do with them! Well now I do!! It was so simple, glue in a Smashbook pocket and stick it in there (instead of a drawer!) And this was the first time Joseph had to wear a tuxedo jacket to play so I had to have a picture of that!! I also used some scraps of paper and some die cuts I had in my stash. I usually save cuts I make and end up not using. The only thing I did that required a little work was cut out a few musical notes with my Cameo, otherwise I just used stuff I had on hand. Like I said I really want to keep this fun and simple!
I used My Creative Time stamps from the Just Simply Live and Cherish This Moment sets, both of these are PERFECT for "Smashing" with!! I also used a hot air balloon I had on hand that I had cut out with MCT's hot air balloon die!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
