I have been hearing about Smash books but wasn't sure what they were. Then there was a thread on the Cricut messageboard which led me to this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PFsArr4Z1s and website http://www.eksuccessbrands.com/kandcompany/ The same day the May Cricut Circle Magazine came out. One of the challenges was to take a project from the magazine and make it your own. There were many beautiful projects but a lovely journal ion page 33 by Janet Wilkins caught my eye. So since I collect things and they often end up in a drawer or box. I decided to make a Smash book using an artist sketch book I had sitting around. I gently pulled the wires apart just enough to take the cover and backing off and then covered them with one of my favorites stacks DCVW Street Lace. The Smash title is from Cricut American Alphabet cut at 1.25, the flowers are the Scalloped cut from Mother's Day Bouquet cut at 1.25 and 1.5. The butterfly is from Rock Princess cut at 3 inches. The mini chalkboard is from MichaelDirections for flowers s and I wrote on it with a silver Sharpie. I also added a MS punch cut, Memory thread for the antennas, Diamond Stickles, a couple embellishments and ribbon.
This is the inside cover
