Smash Album Update

I finally brought out my Smash journal and added some new things to it.

I don't reach for this that often since I started doing Project Life. I still save things to add to this album and finally decided to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon adding some things to it. 

For this layout, I used pictures from our recent trip to the library on a rainy Sunday afternoon. These pages were perfect since they already included a library tag and books. I saved the library receipt and printed these pictures from my phone. I captured the stack of books that Emily checked out and a picture of her looking at the books on the shelf. 

I layered a couple of October Afternoon paper scraps, some washi tape and a stamp.

For this page, I kept is very simple because the notes speak for themselves.  When my husband, Andy, cooks he will sometimes leave these fun notes on the door coming into the house from the garage. Emily and I will see them when pulling in and it always makes us laugh. These are definitely the types of things that I love to keep and a smash journal makes it perfect to keep these fun notes. 

I used a Smash pad journal tag to record my journaling. 

For this page, I wanted to play with some new stamps and inks that I have bought over the last month. 

Sometimes it is just fun to get out your supplies and play. 

I used a some new stamps from Prima and a new set from Stampin Up. The inks are also from Stampin Up. 

I had fun making a mixed media type background.

I layered some October Afternoon paper and ephemera and some rub-on's and called it done. 

Here is a YouTube video that I made if you would like to see a flip-through of the entire journal. 

Thank you for looking!

See you on the next post.
