Practical Scrappers - Smash Journal Feature

Today at Practical Scrappers I have the opportunity to feature my "Smash Journal", so I thought I would share the post with all of you too!

Happy Friday Everyone! It's Practical Scrapper Lynn here this morning and I wanted to share one of my latest projects with you. I was out one day and decided to buy a "Smash Journal". Not sure what to do with it, I brought it home. Let me tell you....this is one fun project! The possibilities are endless. It's a great way to use up all those little scraps of paper, those stamps that have been hiding in the box, the little mementos that have been tucked away. I now have a basket on my desk full of little bits and pieces to use for my journal. Here is an example of a few pages that I've done.

 Here is the Journal when I bought it
 This is what I did with the cover. Too much fun! I used embellishments that have been hidden away for years.
I had some left over Graphic 45 from a layout, so I did the cover page with it.
 This is a page about my daughter. She wrote the little green sticky note and left it on my desk one day. That is how this page started.
 A page about my son. Don't forget to bring out the masks and stencils. 
 I love pigs so I thought I would print out a contact sheet of some of my favorite photos and do a page.
 These next two are a memory page for my little Tessa. A great way to use up those pieces from a 6x6 paper pack!
The possibilities are endless. I love doing this because I feel it just lets your creativity run wild. Anything goes! So if you are "Smashing", have fun, and if your thinking about getting one..take the step..you will be amazed at what you can do with it! Enjoy your day everyone, and thank you for letting me share my journal with you.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments and I appreciate your scrappy support! Have a wonderfully happy scrappy day! Lynn

I bought my SMASH book on a whim and now I am in love with it! I also love to use up scraps I can't bear to toss and embellishments that haven't been used. Love your pages so far! It's nice to see another "SMASHER" out there! :)
