    Gettin' a little crazy here...

    Everyone knows I am a linear scrapper. Clean, graphic designs are mostly what come out of my brain.

    After seeing a post on Cathy's blog, I decided to order a Smashbook. I'm going to get a little crazy and go hybrid! I was thinking it would be the perfect place to "smash" all the little bits of paper I can't let go of, as well as Instagram photos I print. I've already printed a bunch of Ali's journal blocks like this, and Cathy's word art like this.

    It's going to be smashing! And... I WILL color outside the lines. Watch my new, messy self go! Jake's doing an art journal too of his Lego ideas. I hope he keeps it up!

    Anyone else doing this?

  2. Sounds totally cool and now I am so curious to see how you used the word arts ! I have heard of the smash books but would not be able to find them where I am. Sounds exciting and I really want to see what you come up with !

  3. Can't wait to see what you come up with Myra.....hope you share what Jake does too!!

    You are just a 'wild and kuh-ray-uh-zee' gal Myra! I have been collecting bits and envelopes and papers to make one, and it it goes well, I'll make one for each of my granddaughters for school. Fortunately, they go back in September, not August.

    Here's a video that shows the original ideas and then the 'store bought' Smash book version. Smash book concept

    I love the Smashbook concept - it is so cool. Good luck Myra!! I totally applaud when we try to stretch ourselves a little and go outside our comfort zones - well done !! Totally inspiring.
