Well I'm back again today. Wow what a productive day I've had. I got a couple of cards made this morning, ran some errands, did some shopping and started my "Smash Book". Over at Color Me Creative Classroom Suzanne started a new group called We R Smashin, Scrappin & Journaling. This is going to be a fun group with lots of very talented ladies in it. You can buy Smash Books and all sorts of accessories too, but I decided to make mine myself. So today I started. From what I've learned a "Smash Book" can be anything you'd like: a diary, a journal, a little scrapbook, or a place for notes and ideas, anything you want. It's your book you can do with it what you like. I decided to make a book filled with ideas of future projects I'd like to make along with lists of blogs that have cards or other creations that I'd like to CASE someday. So I can keep this list all in one place instead of lots of little sticky notes all over my room. I also figured I'd keep a list of my favorite Copic Color Combos and maybe even some sample colorings in there also. I plan on playing it by ear, day by day.
So this is the cover for my "Smash Book" I just started with some retired SU designer paper and added some computer generated words. Assembed a flower and added a big black brad. I ran some blue card stock though my crimper and edged it with my trusty gold pen and added a butterfly brad that I got from Michaels. I used a MS border punch on both green and blue card stock and then glued together them side by side. I bound it all together with my Bind It All and now I think I'll add some ribbons to the binders and I should be all done. Now I just need to faithfully fill my book with ideas and wonderful, useful information. Well that's about all the energy and creativity I have left in me today. I think I'm going to sit myself down and have a nice drink of soda and relax. I thank you for stopping by today and I hope to see you again tomorrow.
I wish you all a great, relaxing evening.
