SMASH*ing at Savvy

When Sar at Scrapbook Savvy suggested we try some SMASH* books and embellishments this month, I jumped at the chance to see what this latest craze was all about. I couldn't WAIT to see it all in real life. And let me tell you, the SMASHfolios are gorgeous. They have lovely embossed chipboard covers and are filled with 40 pages of nice thick paper with fun pics and patterns. I received the Pretty Pink SMASHfolio to play with and it's right up my alley ;-).


Each SMASHfolio comes with it's own pen/glue all in one. Awesome! Sar gave us bits and pieces of a lot of the embellie packs ... check them all out HERE (and don't forget ... there's 20% OFF STOREWIDE UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT SO BE QUICK!!)

So, here's some of the pages I've SMASH*ed in my new pretty pink SMASHfolio ...

My "vision" for this SMASH book is a place to record all those little everyday things ... to use those photos that aren't the best - you know the ones, they are too dark, too blurry or just plain not perfect, but they still have a story to tell. That's what I'm putting in here ... a little taste of our family's 2013 ...


And some of the inside pages:
I've glued in a drawing by my DD ... and added some journaling underneath ...


Do you SMASH*? Would you like to try? Check out all the awesome SMASH* products in the Savvy store :-)

This was a fun one to play with ...  different style of page with the broken journaling in strips, the big photo and the border strip to balance down the side.

Love the scattered embellies ... but of course, I had to put a couple of clusteres in too.  Just because it's what I do :D.

Oh, and see those awesome FEATHERS by Aga at {scrAp this} !!  Love them!!  And there's a Rainbow Splendour rose too ... in cream ... from this pack:

Keeping it simple

I thought I'd try the Sassy Scrapper's sketch for this month.

Alright, I can hear you saying ... a multi-photo sketch??  And a massive FIVE photos at that??  LOL ... yeah!  Well.  I knew I wouldn't be able to twist my page around to fit in this many, but I did still like the sketch and I had this story I wanted to record.  So, I settled with 2 photos and threw some extra journaling spots in instead :-).  Kept it really simple in fact.

{yes, that is a FWAB tree on it's side ... I thought it looked pretty cool as a branch ;-) }

And an awesome Greatest View badge :-).  Love them!!

The story is about my heart breaking when my kids are sick.  This particular time, the Little Mister went downhill so fast it was scary.  Lucky our Doctor keeps emergency appointments free every day - we have used them more times than I can count. 

Do you like multi-photo sketches?
