a SMASHing good time

Here is my SMASH book (so far)

If you haven't got one of these babies yet -- OMG!! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??

They're made by K&Co, and come with LOTS of accessories.

This is the TRAVEL album, with a rubber band around it, before I started decorating it...

and here it is finished. (I think)
I've used some G45 Le Circque paper, Tim's tissue tape, and Rusty Pickle/Kaiser alpha stickers. I inked the embossed cover and sanded the edges of the paper. I also made the label using dies and a black pen. (the pen that comes with the album is a nice writer at one end, and a glue stick at the other)

Inside, I've done a couple of pages...

These interactive pages are about my trip to Melbourne. I love interactive pages, they make a LO dynamic. I used a SMASH calendar pocket on this page, to hold some ephemera, and then used brads to attach other pieces to the front of the pocket, so that the whole process was one of discovery.

On this page, I used a cut-up ATC pocket page, to hold photos and other bits. It lifts up to reveal yet more pictures underneath.

The tape is another SMASH product, which I LOVE. Also I've attached 'flags' to the plane tickets (SMASH) and there are stickynotes as well (also SMASH accessories).

Here's another page I have done -- not sure if it's finished yet....

To make the tree, I glued paper strips down onto some white card, then laid the tree diecut (Tims) onto it, and free-hand drew the leaves shape around the trunk. Then it was just a matter of cutting and gluing them together.

The birds' nest is made by wrapping string round two fingers, then gluing it to a disc of card, and finishing with some stickybacked pearls. I jabbed a blue heart pin through it, too, but you'll have to squint to see it.
