Soo.....I need to tell you a little bit about my new favorite thing.
Now, I'm not one to sit and do "Dear Diary..." sessions...EVER...so that's not what these journals are all about. It's a scrapbook journal, and I LOVE this idea. These gems are from K&Company and are SO much fun to work with!!!
Have you ever been scrapbooking, and find yourself with leftover pictures that you l.o.v.e. but just don't have room for them, or they don't fit the theme ya got goin' on in the scrapbook (even though they were taken the same day or on the same vacation as all the rest of the pictures, but they still somehow just don't work. how does this even happen, anyway??? i digress.), so you're left with these orphan pictures sitting on your project table.
Enter SMASH journals. They're themed, and all have pre-printed pages in them, and are just.so.fun. I got the light blue "retro" themed one. SO MUCH FUN.
Ok, so. On the side of the journal is a pen. Not just any pen, mind you...this pen has a GLUE STICK on the other end! That way, when you're out, SMASH journal tucked neatly under your arm, just in case you find something awesome that you need to scrap, like NOW, and you're totally prepared! You take whatever it is, grab the glue stick end of the pen, glue it, stick it, voila! Awesome!!!!
I took a few snippy snaps of my SMASH journal, and since I've only just started on this journey, I don't have too much going on, but you can still get the idea.
I had a random Phillies sticker that I just could NOT part with, but had no clue what to do with it. BOOM.
A perfect way to remember those special ball games aand concerts you attend. This ticket is from the Navy v. Troy game I attended at the USNA and had a BLAST. I DEFINITELY have to go back there and snag me a Naval Officer off the streets of Annapolis. Just sayin'.
On the left, tickets to cool stuff in Italy and Spain; the right - Phillies @ Cubs when I got to go to Wrigley Field last year :-) Aren't the pages cool?! I thought they were fitting for my trips around the globe ;-)
Isn't this fun???? There are so many fun, funky SMASH goodies you can use to dress up your pages, like little envelopes, stickies, polka-dotted tape (um, yes. awesome.), etc. Go to the link I have up at the beginning of the post and check out this fun stuff!!
Go forth and be scrappy and creative!!!
