Totally Smashing!

Here is a quick, easy and fun way to keep some of those mementos that traditional scrapbooking does not lend itself too. It may be that we have tickets from a movie or an amusement park that we want to keep. Maybe a love note from our boyfriend (husband, child, girlfriend). Or a magazine clipping for a trip (car, jacket, sofa) that we are dreaming after. What ever it is, here is the perfect little book to keep those little treasures in.
Once you have made one, you will want to make a few and keep them on hand.
Here I have taken paper from my stash, die cut some embellishments to add as I go along, and stamped on a few pages. I will keep an envelope with my scraps in it for future embellishments.
In this 3 hour workshop you will be able to create your one-of-a-kind book from a selection of pattern papers and cardstock and then bind it all together. I will bring in tons of dies so you can create some embellishments and I will bring in a large assortment of stamps. I may even have some embellishments from my stash to share. It is suggested that you bring some of your own to use and share with ours.

This workshop is scheduled for Wednesday March 16th at noon until 3pm. There is also a 3pm workshop.
If there is interest, an evening or weekend workshop could be added to the schedule.

You will need to bring you basic tool kits. I recommend a glue stick to adhere your paper to your chipboard cover. Since you will have access to a multitude of dies, I would also suggest you bring your BigShot if you have one.
Children who are able to use a trimmer etc independently are welcome to attend but must be accompanied my an adult.
Here are some of the pics from my book. I have made the samples from papers in my stash. These papers are NOT available as I have had these hoarded for a few years now.

  1. Very cute idea! The smash books at CHA were a big hit... but I really just like the glue/pen thing that comes with them. Great job making your own :)
